Hello nassaupc - If the unit has stopped making ice completely, try checking the following steps.

· It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there\'s no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.

· Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won\'t cycle properly.

· When was the last time the filter was changed? Most side-by-side filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!

· Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you\'ve found broken parts, you can just replace it.

Should these suggestions prove to be ineffective, contact with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.

Ice maker was installed properly, when you put the arm down it doesn't call for water to fill unit. It doesn't make any kind of noises at all. The water is turned on and all plugs are in there are no kinks in the line but when the arm is truned down for it to call for water nothing happens

SOURCE: Frigidaire side-by-side model # FRS26H5ASB4 making humming or buzzing noise

I had the same problem. I found the buzzing noise was caused by ice build up around the fan motor inside the freezer. I believe water must have leaked down around the fan during a defrost cycle. I removed the ice maker, the ice cube bin and ice dispenser auger motor. It sounds complicated, but it isn't too bad. The ice maker and auger are connected with quick connect plugs. So just unplug, remove the screws and remove them from the freezer. You will need to remove several other screws as well, I believe 11 in total as well as the top freezer rack. This will give you access to the white aluminum panel that runs from the top of the freezer to about halfway down the back of the freezer. After you remove the aluminum panel you will see the fan about half way down the freezer. I found a lot of ice around my fan. The fan blades were hitting the ice causing the buzz. Remove the ice and the buzzing is gone. It took me an hour to complete this repair. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: water dispenser on front of refrigerator door does not dispense water. Ice Cube maker continues to make ice cubes. Defrosting doesn't fix problem.

Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.

Could some please post how to remover the ice maker from my kitchen aid model ktrc 19 m refrig thank you


Look right above the icemaker part that forms the cubes. Its usually brown in color, Just above it are 2 extensions of that brown part that has 2 screws going into the left side of the freezer, Remove the 2 screws and the unit comes out. The power plug for it is just to the back bottom of the ice maker. If you can see it you can probably just unplug it to stop the noise.

My refrigerator is leaking water making noise and not making ice


It sounds like you have a leak (dry rot plastic tubing) on the ice maker water line. The leaking water is being picked up by you condenser fan near the water valves and probably causing the noise.
First, turn the water shut off valve to the refrigerator off.
You have a dangerous situation here. You need to stop the water leak. If the water leak gets to the electrical components of your unit, well it is dangerous!
You will be safe for now if you shut off the water.
You need a skilled technician to fix the problem. Just shut the water supply to the refrigerator off.
My name is Peter, retired Sears Service Refrigeration Technician. Pull the unit out so you can remove the lower back cover behind the refrigerator.

What can I do to fix my ice maker? My ice maker 12685003 in my Amana refrigerator keeps dispensing water and has a huge peak of ice in the tray. It works fine for awhile making regular cubes then it looks...


Most likely your Ice maker inlet valve is not closing properly and seeping water continuously.

This will lead to frozen ice layer on tray or surrounding area in the freezer. Also this water leak from valve will freeze the water line and stop making ice.

Your inlet water valve need to be changed for your fridge. Amana is made by Whirlpool Corporation. Check with your mode number.

Why is my GE (ZFSB23D SS) side by side refrigerator leaking at the back corner, near the rear wheel where the plastic water line goes in?


If the tubing is plastic it could have cracked when you moved the tubing to install the filter. If the tubing is OK then possinly the filter isn't all the way in or is leaking.

We have a puttering noise every 2 months or so, and I have to defrost the freezer to get the ice off the fan. We have had the icemaker replaced under warranty, but it didn't stop the problem, it


it is possible there is a bit of splashing and drops of water fall on the light cover during fillup of the ice maker make sure the hose that leads in the ice maker is positioned correctly to prevent water splashes. Or lower the water pressure to the hose of the ice maker. Good luck.

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.
