The icemaker in my refrig no longer works. I was hearing strange noises for several days and just realized that no new ice is being made. Please advise.

    We experienced a power failure (loss power to our home for about 3 hours) and I don't think the icemaker has worked since that time. Something else... the water coming from the water dispenser is warm. Both the refrig and freezer sides seem to be working fine... haven't had any problem with the cooling on either side.

    Fridge is humming rather than running as normal. The water dispenser is not working. Both problems showed up at the same time. Any ideas?

Have you bumped the control arm into the up position?  Or inadvertently turned the unit off?  Generally, you will have to replace the icemaker as entire unit.  If you are handy, this can be done as it only involves removing a few screws and a connector.

The water dispenser quit working,i can hear motor/unit turning,would a plugged refrig filter be part of problem?


Hello,

Yes a clogged filter could indeed make the water dispenser not work...it too would affect the icemaker as well, is ice being made?? if yes icemaker is working yet no water being dispensed what ya need to check for is a cracked or broken line and instead of water is leaking out of it somewhere.

My side by side refrigerator is making a buzzing noise from the ice maker area every few minutes


Hello,
That sound you here is the icemaker calling for water to fill the icemaker but not water into refrig to fill icemaker. If you have no water connected to icemaker,lift up and lock arm into place to turn off icemaker,if you do have water line connected but no ice is being made need to see why water from house plumbing is not coming into the refrig.

Ice maker not producing ice,already check the basic problems,


The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig maybe frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker

Solution #2 Replace the "water inlet valve" at bottom back right of refrig. Easy To Do.

Just became noisey , have hoovered out all the dust at the rear where motor is etc and now making a strange sound


You need to isolate the noise:

* freezer compartment
* fresh food compartment
* lower rear of refrigerator

Also, give a better description of the noise that you are hearing and how frequent.

There are several motors at work that could make noise (e.g.: freezer fan/evaporator motor, auger motor, icemaker, condenser motor and compressor).

Contact an appliance service company.

Frig is turned down to low and everything is still freezing. Ice maker not making ice.


icemaker not working because to cold in freezer;water transfer tube frozen and will need to be deiced, but first must solve refrig. to cold, making freezer to cold, thermostat problem which is common it is a presure filled and in time can loose presure and will run colder, some have adjustment scew with arrows warmer or colder adust warmer and only turn a 1/4 turn or less until you get in middle of dail range. or replace thermostat. refrig. temp. should be 38 to 40 degrees frenhiet. freezer no colder then 0.

Loud noise coming from icemaker...noise decreases when i increase temp and goes away when icemaker shut off. I set the initial temp at 3 degrees, then let it make ice - after about 3 hours it sounded like...


The icemaker is pretty simple, there is a motor, a solenoid, and a couple of switches.

It sounds like the whole icemaker mechanism is jammed or has a broken gear, and the motor is trying it's darndest to turn the stuck mechanism (grinding it's gears in the process), or the gear has already gone, and what's left of the gear is dancing around in there.

My guess is either the $7 icemaker drive gear or the $94 icemaker assembly.

Ice maker stopped working


The laser , is supposed to blink . This laser , tells the icemaker to stop making ice , when the bin is full . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . If it doesn't dump the cubes into the bin , the icemaker is bad . Or , if there is ice in the bin , which hasn't dumped , the icemaker is bad . If the icemaker dumps the ice ( from water pour ) , then look above the fill cup , and see if the black fill tube is frozen . If so , then replace the water valve and turn the freezer temp down slightly . It will take several days for this fill line inside freezer to thaw . If icemaker dumps , and black tube NOT frozen , replace the water valve . The valve , is where the wall water line connects to on the refrig .
