SOURCE: Kenmore Coldspot w/Ice Maker Not Making Ice

hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck mca0824@aol.com

SOURCE: ge profile refrigerator ice maker

I have what appears to be a similar problem -- but have not yet found a solution. The door or valve on the ice dispensing chute is not closing or sealing properly. The warm air from the kitchen is drawn into the freezer (ice maker). The warm air condenses and freezes causing the ice cubes in the ice bin to freeze together, preventing their discharge from the bin. Also, the warm air and condensation freezes and builds up frost and ice in the discharge chute. When you try to discharge ice cubes, they get stuck in the chute and will not discharge.

Temporarily, you can open the freezer door, access the ice bin and loosen the cubes which are frozen together. You can also remove any cubes from the discharge chute. If there is frost and ice in the discharge chute, use a hair dryer to melt the frost and ice, putting a container under the dispenser in the door to catch the run-off water.

I've done all of the above and I'm still not getting a proper seal and air is still getting into the ice maker bin and dispensing chute. Looks like a service-call is next.

Most likely the water control valve on back of the refrigerator near floor or the thermostat inside the ice maker is defective. You can fill the ice maker with water from tap and see if it cycles one time or you can check the control valve solenoid that feeds water to the ice maker. Click on link below and then paste your model number in model search feature. That takes you to a page with breakdown photos of the parts I mentioned. On the left of your screen click on photo # 12. If you need help with this I am here, just let me know, Sea Breeze

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.

SOURCE: Ice Maker frost and freeze where ice drops into refrigerator door

You need a service guy to look at it. It could be water leaking or a simple case that the flap isnt sealing and the ice melts and then freezes the flap open

Continuous beeping


Either any door is not closed properly or door sensor is not working,its not sensing the door closed.Or the problem is no defrost.The defrost is causing over ice in fridge or freezer section.

Reset the refrigerator by disconnecting it from wall outlet for 12 hours,then reconnect and see if still the same problem is there.

On some cases its issue with fan not working.There are two fans,one in freezer section and one in fridge section.If either of the fan is not working the controls will flash.

Before going to buy any parts directly.

Not making ice after changing filter.


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

A new filter can take several cycles of the ice maker to fill the filter up with water before. The average filter is around 30 oz and the average ice maker fill cycle is 3.2 oz. The new filter did not have any water in it. The water in the door has a resercoir so the air in the filter will still make the water work until you get air. Drain abour 3 tall glasses from the water in door. The ice maker should then work properly. The filter filters water for water in door (inside) and the ice maker so if you have water inside the door you should have ice UNLESS one of the inlet water valve solenoids has failed. Also make sure the Freezer door / light switch functions properly. The door switch is supposed to stop water and ice functions with the door open.

I would like to know if it starts making ice.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Kennmore refrigerator is not making ice,but water


The control light flashes to indicate the infrared beam is being blocked. The flap on the opposite side blocks the beam when the door is open to prevent ice from being dropped on the floor rather than in the ice bin. If you pushe the flap in so it's flush with the liner (use care not to block the hole) the light should go from flashing to on in a steady state. If not, your electronics are bad and would need to be replaced. If the light does glow steady, then the problem is with your ice maker, water valve or ice maker fill tube.

Ice maker does not make ice. water will dispense thru door and I replace the water filter every six months.


I had the same problem. There is air in the line therefore you need to dispense about 3 gallons of water from the dispenser and that should slove the problem. Also, take a clean soft cloth or paper iowel and wipe the ice make sensor (if you have one) and the reciever. There is one on each side of slightly below the ice maker. Should be a flashing or steady red light ....follow the flashing red light to the other side.

The refrigerator icemaker does not make ice.


you have to hold in the ice type and the childlock button for about 6 seconds and that will take the filter light off. To reset the ice maker open the freezer door and then pull out the ice bin. on the bottom of the ice maker theres a button that you have to hold in to reset the ice maker.

The ice maker is not making ice


I assume "light flashing inside@the switch" means the inside light turns on when you open the door, and goes off when you close the door, or depress the switch manually.

Sounds like the fill valve has failed at the bottom back of the refrigerator.

Reply back your findings if that is not it and I will give you more suggestions.

Ice maker is not getting water to make ice


The most likely cause is the green water solenoid behind the fridge. Take an ohm meter and test across the two terminals and it should NOT ohm out(beep). If it does not ohm out I would replace the P.C. Board kit, emitter & receiver icemaker control. You can buy the P. C. boards and a new water inlet valve kit with new quick connections at www.repairclinic.com or www.appliancepartspros.com Both sites are very helpful and most likely have these parts in stock.

The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.


Hello jitkagardner,
Welcome


You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

How old is the fridge?
When have you last changed the water filter.
Should be down below at the front grille!
Try these tasks!

If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice
Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
• Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
• Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
• New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
• Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer
compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not
close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely."
• Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
• Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
• Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and
operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may
be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it
correctly.
• Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.

Let me know how it goes!
