Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in
it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen.If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let
it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then
try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell
you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice
maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear
it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube
it will freeze.You can take the water
line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
prior to the replacement of the cartridge, the ice maker is okay? if yes , try to re check the installation, there might be something to remove before installation,you can check it also by comparing to the old one, sometimes taking pictures before removing parts can help a lot.
Start by cleaning the condenser with a brush and a shop vac. Then get some nickleguard ice machine cleaner and wash the units plate's down going by package directions, then retry before calling a tech. It may start working but if it does not then it may save you some money by having the unit clean before the tech gets there. Ice machines are not a DIY repair. Sowwy
daddysgirl, You do not indicate the model number or the age of the stove. Early model self clean stoves used a 'oven lock door handle.' Later model stoves do not use such a handle but is electronic. I believe this is the one that you own. You also don't indicate it the door is indeed "LOCKED" or does the console just says that it is locked. If you press START... does the oven actually come on and heat to desired temperature? If not... I believe that you have a touchpad control problem. You can unplug your stove from the wall or turn off the stove's 220VAC 50 amp circuit breaker located in your main electrical panel. If possible leave off over nite and then reapply power the next morning. If you still have the same oven contol problems, then you will have to replace your oven Electronic Control Module (ECM). It sounds like the "touchpad" portion is defected but unfortunately it usually comes as a part of the ECM. The oven ECM is very expensive ($150-275. retail) plus labor to install. Hopes this helps you! HandyHenry
The control knob more than likely operates a relay that has gotten stuck in the energized position. If this isn't the case then the Temp sensor or thermostat probably shorted internally. Unplug the unit before attempting any work.
TRY UNPLUGGIN THE RANGE FOR FIVE MINUTES AND THEN PLUGGING IT BACK IN. IF IT DOESN'T RESET AND UNLOCK, YOU COULD HAVE EITHER A BAD OVEN SENSOR OR BAD CONTROL(CLOCK). IF YOU ARE A DO IT YOURSELFER, YOU COULD BUY A NEW OVEN SENSOR, REMOVE THE BACK PANEL FROM THE RANGE(THE LARGER LOWER PANEL) FIND THE SMALL CONNECTOR PLUG THAT COMES THROUGH THE BACK WALL. IT HAS ONLY TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. DISCONNECT THE OLD SENSOR AT THAT POINT AND CONNECT THE NEW SENSOR. IF THE OLD SENSOR IS BAD, THE DOOR WILL UNLOCK AND YOU CAN THEN REPLACE THE BAD SENSOR
THROUGH THE OVEN OPENING.
