Ice maker won't fill

Ice maker was previously working until a piece of ice got stuck in the exit of the ice maker. Ice maker attempted to fill and water splashed everywhere inside the freezer. Water stopped prior to our discovery of the problem. Removed the blockage...didn't work. Removed the ice maker and let it thaw...still didn't work. Jumped H & T test ports on the side of the ice maker and it turns as suggested in another solution. Disconnected both lines from the solenoid on the rear and water seems to be to both ports. Water flows from the in the door water. Suggestions?? Thanks

I had this problem with a Kitchenaid and Sears rep advised me to pour some water in the tray. Did and the ice maker started working in about 90 minutes.

Timer ice maker kenmore side

If the timer piece you are referring to is behind the square white cover, and it's moving slightly back and forth, you should visually check the ice making area it's self to see if the ejector fingers are jammed with ice, or against the ice stripper. Ice Maker jams can be caused by reduced water pressure to the unit mainly from the water filter, your water filter in the toe kick should be replaced at an interval of 6 months to a year, regardless of filter status light. When water pressure is low, not enough water fills the unit and the undersized cubes can become lodged or stuck in the ice maker while being ejected, equally so if there is an over fill situation caused by other failures the ice maker can't eject at all.

there are plastic arms on the ice maker,sometimes they bend and get jammed or when the ice got stuck it did damage to the motor and it finally died,if it's filling,a heater on the ice maker comes on,loosens up the cubes,the motor turns and dumps out the cubes,it sounds like you have a bad ice maker

Ice maker will not fill with water

Water might be frozen in the tube that fills the ice tray. Check the tube and if it's frozen shut, use a hair dryer to heat it until the ice piece melts out. Your icemaker should work after the fridge has been closed for 24 hours to cool back down.

I have a side by side that has the ice maker in the door, when it makes ice cubes, they come out all connected and this makes it difficult to get ice to despense from the shoot and most of the time it will...

It sounds like you have too large a fill of water in the ice maker. If you remove the ice maker there is a fill adjustment screw under the cover of the ice maker.( the only way to get the cover off is to remove the ice maker)
Very small plastic screw head of about 1/8 inch or less. Ice maker controls water valve by time fill. Believe there is one turn adjustment total available. You might want to put a small hole in the cover before you reinstall it to adjust screw the next time without removing ice maker, believe it will be side facing out. Lastly I think you turn adjustment screw in to decrease and out to increase time of fill.
Suggest leaving a towel on the floor for awhile until you have solved problem.
Next thing to try would be a different ice maker, or if normal sized ice is melting and refreezing in the bin, you have a cooling or thermostat problem .

Good luck

My ice maker is not working...i replaced the maker but still no ice after 48 hrs...but i did notice ice stuck in the valve that goes into the maker..i pulled the chuck that normal?

The ice frozen in the fill tube , is a sign of a bad ( seeping ) water inlet valve . Sounds like you needed to replace the water valve , instead of the icemaker , if the problem was " not making ice " . The water valve , is the piece the wall water line connects to on the back of the refrig .

Leaking water on floor only happens when making ice

I wonder if you just notice the noise now because the leak has you more aware? First things first. Lift up the arm on the ice maker (a few hours prior to attempting service) to stop it's operation. You need to roll the unit forward to give you access to the back. You'll see a plastic tube that runs from the bottom compartment (water valve) to the ice maker fill tube. Lower the arm of the ice maker and observe the plastic tube for the location of the leak. The most likely spot would be at the top. A hose clamp can be put on the fill tube after making sure the plastic supply tube is completely inserted into the fill tube. The fill tube is the piece that goes through the rear bulkhead and delivers the water to the icemaker. It may be neccessary to remove the icemaker to thaw out the fill tube using a hair dryer.

Ice Maker Not Dispensing

I have fought with ice makers before and I find it to be easier when considering the time and trouble dedicated to troubleshooting and frustration of not having ice when you want it, to just replace the unit. You can purchase a replacement Ice maker for your fridge on-line for $85.00 plus shipping and handling. At the most you will have to remove 3 screws and unplug one electrical connection (please remember to unplug your fridge before attempting replacement) and your ice troubles will be over.

Ice Maker does not work

My husband repaired our ice maker after our repairman failed to show to replace the entire unit. He removed the front panel and then the next panel fastened by 2 screws. A white plastic piece can be seen as the ice exits the unit, which is poorly designed and literally gets stuck to the left. He slid the piece to the right and vuala! It works. He is looking for a rubber piece or something that will keep the piece pushed to the right, as it seems due to the poor design that this type of malfunction will happen again... good luck!

Ice maker doesn't work!

Could be the sensor for the ice maker to fill up....we have a wire bar that flips up when full so it shuts off ....also a piece of ice gets stuck in the plastic fingers somtimes but since you defrosted it that shouldn't be the problem....not sure if you can take the ice maker out yourself ...better call the repair man ...
