Electrolux Icon ice maker stopped working.

This could have happened right after the water was turned off at the street for a few hours, but I'm not sure the two events are related. We have no ice, and I don't think there is water going in. The water dispenser right next to the ice dispenser works just fine. Water supply is definitely ON and we have blown out the line in case there was something blocking it.

    The ice maker itself will turn and the arm will raise but no water gets to the trays , so no ice falls out. Started after power outage. I noticed that the ice in the tray was "refrozen" about a week ago. Threw it out and no more ice has been made. This is the electrolux icon upright freezer, paired with  the exact same refrigerator. Water filter is in the refrigerator Just a little over a year old.

    I have the same problem when the refrigerator was moved from one location to another. The water dispenser works with strong pressure but the ice maker does not get any water hence no ice is made. The previous frig ice maker works fine with the same water line.

SOURCE: Electrolux will not make ice. the water will dispense

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.

More than likely the microswitch for the water lever has failed or broken.
You'll need to access the dual water valve on the back of the unit to determine that when you press the lever - the solonoid on the valve is getting voltage.
If it is getting the turn on voltage - the solenoid is bad and needs replacing.
If it is not getting a signal voltage - the switch is bad.
CLICK HERE for all the diagrams to your unit.
Unfortunately - most parts on this unit are unavailable. I have checked 3-4 different vendors.
This unit also uses a electronic board controller instead of individual components that can be easily replaced.
The replacement module for this unit is $376 and can be seen HERE as part #38C.
The dispenser module (#8) is not available.

Contacting the Manufacturer may be your best bet in finding replacement parts or an authorized repair center that can access the parts.

Thanks for using FixYa!

check and see if there is a built in filter pack inside the back of the fridge or it could possibly be that one of the lines has froze internally and or the open close valve at the water inlet inside has worn out

My Electrolux icon ice maker will not turn on. The display continually reads OFF and none of the buttons are responding


Hello John Bauer, thank you for your post!

Based off the information you have provided your icemaker inside of your Electrolux Icon will not shut off and the control is displaying "OFF". I would recommend pressing the up or down arrow three times in five seconds, that should jump start your compressor. If that does not work I would suggest performing a power reset and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. Hope this helps. -Matt

Electrolux icemaker not working


If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, please check these, in this order:

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.

The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. 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 a professional to diagnose the unit.

My electrolux Icon side by side counter depth fridge is making a knocking noise in the ice maker region. All aspects function perfectly, but the noise is getting increasingly loud.


SO I have/had this problem. The knocking started almost 3 months ago when I got it. IT got to the point where the ice make will not work.
Just had the repairman out. He started out clueless but over the course of an hour he had the factory on the line, and got it resolved, I was watching over his shoulder.

The ice mold is on a cam. It drops down and around to the right to fill with water, and then back up into the center to freeze the water. HE got a kick out of how it worked, it is kind of cute.

When its going to the right to fill, there is a plate in the back right hand side that covers the copper freon line, it protrudes into the path of the ice mold. As ice/frost build up it bends it more to the point it will prevent the mold from swinging into the position to get water. Thats what happened to me.

There is a kit to fix. He did a temp fix:
1) With the Ice tray out.
2)Remove 2 screws on the front lower part of the ice maker and slide cover off.
3)On the right side 2 freon lines come into the ice maker there is a piece of plastic, maybe 2-3 inches square, with a slight offset to it. That's the problem piece. Remove it, and bend it a touch so it pulls it out of the path of the mold.
4) Reassemble.

WHen my kit comes, I'll just re-install it myself.

Electrolux icon stopped making ice


You may have gotten rust or debris in the line when you turned it back on, Check water connection and clean out the screen. Air should work out of the line quickly, but can cause some delay in ice making.

Electrolux Icon ice maker stopped working.


HI. Whenever maintenance is done on the water system there is a chance that rust and other debris will break loose and move into the pipes in the house. The tube that feeds the icemaker is only 1/4 inch and easy to block. There is often an inline filter in this tube which feeds the water into the ice maker.

Begin by raising and lowering the wire arm inside of the ice bucket as this will jar the system a little bit. this alone may get the water flowing again. If not, look in your owner manual to see about the location of a filter in the ice machine supply line. If there is a filter, check it. If not you may need to disconnect the supply line where it hooks up to the refrigerator in the rear of the unit to see if the water is flowing to that point. good luck.

LG refrigerator french door icemaker not working


The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

I have a frost free fridge freezer zanussi (electrolux) znb323s. A week ago I discovered the fridge part was not cooling but the freezer part seemed fine. I emptied the fridge and turned off to defros I have a frost free fridge freezer zanussi (electrolux) znb323s. A week ago I discovered the fridge part was not cooling but the freezer part seemed fine. I emptied the fridge and turned off to defrost. The top part of the freezer was heavily encased in ice (evaporate coils I think). After perusing the web for advice I removed the the front vent, the back wall and dropped the coil panel to access the fan. The fan had obviously not been working for some time cos it was covered in ice. I defrosted the whole fridge for 2 days. Turned it back on and the freezer part seems fine although v cold. The fridge seems not to be cooling again. The compressor seems to be constantly running. Current temps are fridge 12, freezer -25, ambient 16. I haven't got anything in the freezer yet. Thermostat set on 1 (1-6 setting). How is the fridge cooled? When I removed the evap panel I could not see how cold air gets to the fridge. There aren't any holes in the fridge so I am assuming the back panel should be cooled. If the thermostat is u/s would the compressor still run? Does the thermostat control any duct vv from freezer to fridge back panel? I attempted to remove some of the insulation from the fridge rear but was worried about cutting anything under it so abandoned that. Wife now giving me grief. Pse help. Andy
