Lifting the bar to the full up position is how you stop the ice maker from making ice. move the bar back down and ice making will resume.

The ice maker on the kitchen aid refrigerator is not producing any ice.


Check the cut-off/ overflow bar, its the little rod that lifts up as the tray fills. It normally does not become stuck but has a catch n hold position when moved up to a certain point. This allows you to stop ice flow and water from filling the ice maker tray for maintenance, cleaning and keeps ice from building up and getting stale and bad tasting. If you have an in line water filter or cut-off valve, these may need to be replaced and checked to see if they are functioning. Check the water supply line that runs from a source to the refrigerator to be sure it is not clogged, kinked or compressed. The ice tray may also have to be pushed "back" into the slot so that a safety/shutoff latch is triggered which controls the water/power to the ice-maker unit. A good idea to unplug fridge/freezer when checking water line connections and be sure to know where your main water supply shut-off valve is, this small supply line will put a gallon of water on your floor in less than 3 min! Good luck.

Ice maker not making ice. ice in the tray, but will not dump the ice


Its the bar and gears that has frozen.

There is a stainless bar on the front of the ice maker. It move out and back to check for ice in the bucket. This bar is stuck and the ice maker thinks there is no need to harvest ice.

Try to move this bar and I bet it is stuck.

You can get a new Ice maker from Ebay and replace it yourself.

Doesn bring water to ice maker


If you have water at the door, the most likely problem is that the metal bar that shuts the ice maker off has been moved to the off position. Check to see if the metal bar is in the up or down position. If it is up, move it down and vice versa and give it an hour to see if it begins making ice again.

Ice maker jammed. Ejector fingers in incorrect position.


Is the position off - or the icetray heater failed?
Just before ejection - there is a heater element that warms the ice for easy discharge.

Check that the heater is working.

Reply with the model # of the fridge for more exact help.

Thanks!!

Ice maker stoped working


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.

Crosley side by side ice maker makes to much ice !!!!!!


Most ice makers have a wire bar that senses when the ice bucket is full. The bar lifts up when new ice is made. The ice maker determines if the ice bucket is full by lowering the bar back down after the ice drops into the bucket. If the bar hits the ice cubes in a full bucket, the ice maker shuts off. If the bar drops all the way and dosen't touch ice cube, the ice maker continues making ice until the bucket is full.

So you likely have one of the following problems:
1) The wire bar is missing or bent. Check to make sure that when the bar is pushed up, the ice maker stops making ice. Most bars will 'click' into the up position so you can shut the ice maker off. Push the bar up until it clicks into the up position and wait overnight to see if it makes more ice. If there is no wire bar over the ice bucket, that is your problem.

2) The switch the wire bar is connected to is malfunctioning. If you push the wire bar up and the ice maker continues to make ice, this is likely your problem. You will need a new ice maker unit. Try Appliance Parts Pros or EBay for a new unit.

Ice Maker Won't Stop Making Ice


There is an adjustment for the "harvest" bar (The bar you lifted up). That bar you are lifting up tells the ice-maker that the cubes have fallen into the ice storage and starts the ice-making cycle over. It is also the Limit switch for the ice level in the storage container ... if it stays up for preset time determined by the manufacturer it stops making ice... most all ice-machines use the same devices. they vary little in design. Sometimes you can just gently bend the bar down to the point where it turns-off the machine at the level you want ... unless you can get to the adjustment hinge you can adust it there. For the fact it goes off when you lift it all the way up tells me the harvest switch is turning the ice-maker off.
