SOURCE: Ice Maker not dispensing ice...

Thanks anyway, guys, but I figured it out. Hopefully this can help someone else. I noted that the auger indeed is supposed to rotate fully and not just swing from side to side as mine was doing. I then noted that my auger had screwed itself too far into the slotted plastic plate at the back of the bin. It was therefore lopsided in the bin and hitting on both sides. I took the contraption apart so that I could back it out and put it back correctly in the slot. The ring shape of the end of the auger fit snugly back around the round plastic ring again. Buttoned it all back up and I'm good to go....for now. (smile)

SOURCE: The water in the ice

Hi and welome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
You are experiencing an inlet water valve water bypass symptom. What is happening is that the inlet water valve is allowing water to drip into the ice maker after the harvest cycle has long since finished. This is a common failure and all brands of refrigerator that are more than 5 years old. Replacing the inlet water valve will correct the over-fill problem. (I actually had to do this on my own 8 year old Maytag refrigerator not 6 months ago.) If you provide a model number I can point you to several on line sources for the inlet water valve.

Or you can just enter your model number on the following links:
http://www.frigidaire.com/productregistration (enter your model number)

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action (Use the "Find it fast" window in "Model; search")

http://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts (enter your model number in the search window)

If you do not have an inline water filter I would recommend that you install one at the time you replace the inlet water valve. It will keep plumbing debris out of the now inlet water valve and ensure a longer service life for same.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

SOURCE: ice maker is leaking water at the rear of the ice

Hello,The reason all the ice freezes together and you see icecicles forming from the icemaker,is going to caused by the water inlet valve on the back of the refrig.is not fully closing but instead it's seeping water through it and dripping into the ice storage bucket. To stop that from happening the water inlet valve would need to be replaced.
On refrigerators that have a built in water filter,alot of times their will be 2 water valves and the one that is bad causing water to seep through it will be the one called the SECONDARY valve.

Tip

What to do if your ice maker stops working


Many refrigerators now come with built-in ice makers. Ice makers are very convenient, but occasionally they'll develop problems. Why pay a repairman to come out if the fix is easy and you can do it yourself?

Here are some tips for fixing an ice maker that stopped working.

- Check the on/off switch

Freezers with automatic ice makers have a switch that is used to turn the ice-making feature on or off. This switch is typically a rod above the ice box; when it's lowered, the ice maker is on, and when it's raised the ice maker is off. If the ice box fills up with ice, the ice can force the rod up, turning off the ice maker. Check this bar to be sure it is in the lowered position.

- Check if the auger or chute is clogged

Your ice maker has a chute where the ice falls from the freezer into the external tray (where a glass is placed). There is also an auger inside the freezer that rotates to drive the ice forward from the ice box into the chute. Check the chute for large chunks of ice that may be clogging it up, and check the auger for ice cubes or chunks that might have gotten wedged between the auger and the freezer, causing the auger to be unable to rotate.

- Check the water line

If you still haven't found the problem, check the water line leading into the freezer. This water line has its own valve. Make sure the valve is open, allowing water into the freezer to create the ice.

Hi

This usually is because the drive on the ice box is not engaged,
1. Remove the ice box and empty it into a bowl
2. Replace the ice box and turn the auger (spiral metal inside) until it locks into the drive motor
3. Ensure the box is pushed back as far as it will go
4. Put ice back into ice box
5 Try dispensing ice again
This is a common problem as there are teeth on the back of the ice box that have to align with the drive motor in the back of the freezer

Hope this helps

My ice maker makes plenty of ice, no problem with the water either. My problem is that the auger will not turn to dispense the ice out of the bin. The motor kicks on when you push in the buttom, however it...


Pull the ice bucket out, then hold in on the door light switches and while you push a glass into the button for ice (may require two people). Ice dispenser and auger will only work, when you push for ice, when the freezer door is closed, so by holding the light switch(s) in the off position with door open you can simulate door being closed. If you can push the button and see the auger drive turn (with ice bucket out) then check to see if you have some ice stuck between the blades on the bucket, if the auger motor doesn't turn, it may be "ice frozen". Common problem. Remove motor, let sit on counter for about three hours and then reinstall, if it then works then check for water dripping from the fill tube, where the water comes into freezer for the ice maker, and see if it is dripping onto auger motor.

If you put auger motor back in and it still won't turn then more and likely you need an auger motor.

Let me know.

GE refrigerator model GSS22 WGMD ice maker motor


If you cant manually turn your auger motor, it may be bad. Does it dispense solid ice or no ice at all? Another thing may be your control panel. That could be bad too, it's the one sending juice to both your solenoid and auger motor.

The auger arm doesn't turn. The ice maker still makes ice, it just can't dispense.


Take the ice container with auger inside it and defrost it. Withe the door open to the freezer push the switch that turns light on in freezer to turn it off. Have someone push the ice dispenser switch while you hold the light button in. Tell me if there is any movement in the auger motor in rear and let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Why doesn't my ice maker work?


You do not list model number, so this will be very generic. If you have cubes in the ice bin, and when you try to dispense them the duct door opens and the auger motor runs, check the auger in the ice bin itself. Check where the spiral auger meets the plastic part on front of the auger. Drive part likely seperated.

Ice maker for Model HSS25GFPJWW


Probably, but sometimes frost builds up in them and makes them unable to turn. They are gear reduction motors so you may not be able to turn it by hand, but if you take the ice container out, hold the door open, the door switch closed and press the ice dispenser and try to turn it whichever direction it's trying to go, you may be able to free it up. If that doesn't work you'll most likely need a new auger motor.
