Hi Rich Byhre - The heater on the ice maker is energized by an internal thermostat. If it is not cycling once the ice is frozen, then the refrigerator could possibly have a faulty ice maker or the mold is not getting cold enough. I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward and to assist with the repairs.

Ice maker is frozen


If ice is frozen in the cube trays and does not come out, this can be caused by an open tray heater element or a cam mechanism that is not working and not turning on the heat element. Replacement of parts is in order. But lots of places ripp you for parts so when you figure in the cost of the part and shipping it is often best to just go out and get a new ice maker for about 40 bucks on ebay.

Ice maker not working


Is water getting into ice tray? If not, check the water line feeding unit. If that is ok then check the solenoid that controls water flow into tray.

If water is frozen in tray then anomaly is caused by the mechanics of ice maker. If the ice melt mechanism does work the ice will stay stuck in there. Caused by broken heater element in ice maker or a defective thermostat in ice maker that turns the heater element on. Or it could be a defective motor in the cam that sets up the sequence of events.

Easiest fix is to just replace entire unit from ebay for about 40 bucks.

Ice maker not dropping the ice once it is frozen.


Yes there is a heater that releases the ice cubes from the tray as they are being elected. There is an overheat thermostate relay inseries with the element in the ice maker assembly. The element is installed in the metal housing that holds the tray.

If the cubes do not release the heater should remain on until they do. Suggest that you turn off the ice maker by lifting arm to off and wait several hours. Open door drop arm and observe. If the cubes remain stuck when ejector fingers attempt to eject and ice doesen't eject then heater is not coming on. Suggest replace ice maker. The parts are easily available and easy to replace!

Ice maker problem


Clear the Ice tray by pressing the button under the ice maker. The problem is that the ice is in the first couple of slots is not dumping and the tray tries to fill again and over flows. I pressed the button and cleared the tray of ice (This will tilt the tray and twist it to empty it) that was re-frozen several times without dumping. My ice maker works perfectly after I did the above. I think the problem arises if the door did not close completely. I stopped hanging the dish cloth on the door and on my LG Dish wisher. I hope this helps

Ice maker not working


Depending on the ice maker style, they typically work off a motor timer. The timer motor rotates to set up the ice making process... starting with letting water into an empty ice mold tray, allowing ample time for that water to freeze and then to rotate that mold so that the cubes fall out into the bin. In conjunction with that process, a small heater is turned on to release the frozen cubes from the tray. The 'ice tray full' lever signals the system to stop making ice so you may want to verify that the lever is down and not causing the ice maker to stop, If that's down then I suggest you monitor the position of the motor gearset underneath an access cover. With power applied, the gears should rotate and cycle thru an ice making process. If it does and ice fails to fall out, your heater may be defective. Hope that helps...
