We first need to know if your referring to the ice tray dumping into the bin. Or the ice dumping out into your cup at the front of the refrigerator. If at the bin I maybe the the defrost element on the bottom of the tray that heats up while the fingers spins around to push the ice out from the tray into the bin has burnt out and needs replaced . Most modles require you to replace the entire tray. However if your referring to the front of the refrigerator at the dispenser for you glass. It could be (1) That the trigger switch is bad or touch pad is bad. But if it makes noise as if its trying to bring the ice but it's not then that's not your problem.(2) it could be that the Alger Screw that moves the ice from the chest to the front could have sheared a pin striped the spines or broke at the knuckle.you would only hear the motor running with no ice movement if this was the case(3) and most likely the spout/opening that allows the ice to get from the bin to the Auger has restriction/ frozen block do to improper drainage during defrost cycle. Simply remove the bin inspect and use warm water to clean out obstruction. Hope this help.
this sounds like your freezer is operating properly, except that the drainage of the water when going through the defrosting mode is not draining properly, pooling on the bottom of the freezer and then freezing. Check the drainage hose for the defrost in the lower pan. I would remove everything, place in ice chest, let the unit completely thaw out and then inspect. I hope this is beneficial.
float switch is stuck in the "down" position. The unit goes thru a fill cycle and after 1 minute, the board "Looks" at the float swith to "see" if the sump is full. If float is stuck down, it tells the board that the unit does not have enough water and stays in the fill cycle. The compressor will not come on as long as the machine "thinks" there is not enough water. let me know if I can help further
Check drain under freezer coils and clean out. Look out for frozen drain instead of trash Use hot water or turn off 24 hrs if that is the case. I usually insert a phillips screwdriver dowm in the drain and
pour hot water on the screwdriver so the heat transfers downm the screwdriver to the ice clog.

Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker ( unless ice is already there ) . If the icemaker dumps the cubes , then the water valve is bad . If it doesn't dump , and holds the frozen cubes , replace the icemaker . Also check your coils to make sure they are clean from dust , lint , etc . Check the fill tube going to the icemaker , to make sure it isn't frozen with ice . If it is , then watervalve is still bad (leaking ) .
first off, make sure its under 17F in freezer as icemaker will not start above this...you need to make sure the icemaker is coming on..if so, you may just have a bad water valve. I'd put four ounces of water into the mold and see if it starts by itself dumping out your ice. if it dumps out your ice..look to see if the inlet tube that brings water into your i/m is not frozen up with ice in it..if it is, defrost with hair dryer and wait and see if it starts to work ok dumping ice.if it starts to work ok..replace fill valve..
If you find everything looking normal and your sure no ice plug in fill tube..you can try to start i/m manually..if your confident enough to work with tools and electricity...find the T and H they are close to each other on front of i/m. take an insulated wire and make a jumper that each end has 1/2 of end stripped of to go into i/m T and H..keep in there for 30 seconds and i/m should start on its own..remove jumper and either put i/m back or be ready to catch water should it come on. if no letters on front of i/m just gears. find the small 5/16 gear and turn until rake arm starts to come up. this i/m should start on its own ... if it starts and runs fills, replace i/m...if it starts , but does not fill..your inlet valve may be bad. it helps to have a volt meter for this.. you can remove top and find valve up there or its under the bottom front vent plate. locate wires that go onto valve. use your volt meter to check for 111-130 volts when you restart your i/m as already talked about. remember, it will take several minutes before you notice anything..the i/m needs to cycle first and get to the spot it fills..if you get power and no water and your sure there is water..the inlet valve is bad...
Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker and see if it dumps the cubes after a few hours . If it does , and icemaker does not refill , then water valve is the problem . If the icemaker never dumps the water poured in , then icemaker is bad . ALSO , check to make sure the coils under refrig are clean of dust , lint , etc . Icemaker has to be 5 degrees to operate .
