SOURCE: Noisy ice dispenser door

It could be something as simple as you might need to manually defrost your ice maker. There is a auger that moves the ice forward that could be iced up. Try that first.

Do you have separate levers for Ice and water, or do you have one lever and then you slide a switch to either one and then push the one lever.

SOURCE: ICE MAKER WONT MAKE ICE

Water flow is governed by a solenoid valve which is controlled by a timer that sets the cycle for all of the icemaker functions. The timer is controlled in turn by the switch that is actuated when the bin is full. One of these three is malfunctioning and to determine which is at fault will require the removal of the icemaker mechanism (to check the switch) and possibly sheet metal on the back of the fridge.
You will also need a multimeter of some kind to check for switch operation and continuity of the solenoid coil. Adequate instruments can cost as little as $3 and in any case under $20, have digital displays and are normally accompanied by some instructions in Chinglish which are somtimes pretty entertaining.

SOURCE: kitchenaid no water, but ice

first thing i would check here is my water resivoir, on these models it has a tendency to freeze,, hit the tank and upper line with a hair dryer for several minutes then give the water a try....
barring that it may be time to change your water filter even if the sensor has not picked it up yet

My Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator GS6NVEXSL00 wont give me the ice out the door. It makes ice, but when I press the button on the door nothing happens. Seems like the button went out. HELP!


Does the water dispenser work? Is there a light at the dispenser panel, does it light? Do you hear any noises or motors running when you actuate ice dispenser? You could have a power issue for the dispenser. Some newer whirlpool models have an issue with the wiring leading into the door at bottom being so securley fastened to frame, the lack of movement forces the wires to bend, and in time break, with door usage. If water dispenser works, and you hear no sounds when the ice lever is actuated, then you have a problem with the dispenser panel circuit board. if water works and you hear some sounds when ice lever is actuated, such as a loud popping noise, then you have a bad ice dispenser auger motor, not churning the ice out of the bucket.

You may have an issue with one or more of the following:

* icemaker
* dispenser actuator
* ice chute door assembly
* ice dispenser solenoid (if the solenoid is stuck in an open position, the ice chute door/flap would remain open allowing cold air to escape).

Contact an appliance service company.

Does not make ice, does not dispense water. Can


Sounds like the motor that controls the water flow is either broken or defective. Or the water valve is turned off.

For some reason the dispenser will stop working part of the time and more recently will stick on and overflow.I pulled the cover off the inside of the door and there is ice buitl up on the insulation.


You need to thaw out the ice machine and see if it works after you thaw it out if that does not fix the problem then the control arm for the ice dispenser is bent.

We have a Jenn Air side by side, model JCD2389GEW. The ice dispensers work, the water does not. This started after I replaced the filter. I've checked and nothing is locked out. When you press the actuator pad to dispense water, you can hear a noise similar to a small pump which I assume is a solenoid attempting to open. Any ideas?

Ice machine makes ice,does not dispense ice


Is it making any noise at all when you press the dispenser? If not check the switch on the dispenser on the front of the door, the actuator may be broke or stuck. The only way to see this is to take it apart, you will see levers and springs, push the dispenser lever and check that the switch is making contact. If you here noise when you press the dispenser like a relay clicking you may have a bad auger motor. Is the ice tray pushed all the way in? And check the freezer door light switch, that is a safety so you cant operate the ice with the door open, if the bulb is out replace it, some models are wired to read through the bulb (dont know why) Please let me know if this helps you out.

Water or ice will not stop after removing glass.


Although I don't have this problem, I took my dispenser apart tonight for a different reason. Moving the lever with the glass actuates a mechanical switch. It's a really simple mechanism. If I were you, I would check to see if that mechanical switch is sticking. Maybe someone had a glass of soda or something sticky, which splashed up there when they got ice. That could be enough to gum it up.

Taking it apart was not tough. The plastic border pulls right off. Then the assembly that has the buttons and lights on it can be removed by pushing it downward enough so that it clears the plastic holders, and then you just pull the top edge towards you. At that point I unplugged the fridge so I couild disconnect some connectors. Then 4 screws gets the whole glass switch assembly out. You should be able to inspect the mechanical switch operation at that point to see if it is sticking.

Good luck.
