MAYTAG ICE MAKER NOT WORKING

Ice maker not doing anything..I tried to check voltage and got no volts by sticking meter probes in the L and N holes on the face of the ice maker..tried jumping the motor by jumping the T and H holes just in case my voltage check was off..nothing no movement of the wheel so I assume no power to the motor. But if I have no voltage shows when probing holes L-N how do I track down the source of the for no power to the ice maker..I have plugged and unplugged both ends of the four wire harness a couple of times didn't help. I saw no corrosion on the plugs. I would like to probe the plug in the wall of the frig but not sure what two holes of the four hole female plug to use..the wires are a black,a tan, a gr/yl and a white..so to check power/voltage coming out the back of the which two do I probe with my meter..??? The refrigerators works well otherwise lights, cold etc.

SOURCE: ice maker does not work.

This is what I have discovered. When I removed the motor from the control module to test it, it rotated the gear about 30 degrees. I basically plugged it into the wall with jumpers I made from some 14 guage wire to do the test. Then when I put it all back together it started cycling and actually made some ice. However the next morning it failed again. I observed that the arm that flips the ice into the bucket was stopped in the exact same location as when it originally failed. At this point I decided to take apart the control module to look inside. Inside the module you will find a copper circuit that looks like a road map. If you take the gear off you will see circular copper tracks and four copper finger like points that ride on the circular tracks. I noticed that one of the fingers was a little lower that the rest and this caused no contact being made as the gear turned and reached a certain point in the rotation. That would explain why it failed the second time in the same spot and since I activated the motor 30 degrees it was past the spot where it would fail. Now the reason one of the fingers was a little lower was because the copper track had come apart from the board itself causing the dead spot.

Hi,

If the ice maker no longer make ice, check the following.

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.

Thanks

YOU MAY NOT BE GETTING POWER TO THE VALVE VIA THE ICE MAKER ITSELF NEED TO TEST ICE MAKER FOR VOLTAGE WITH A METER

How to Test the Ice Mold Heater There are two types of ice makers, those in which all of the parts can be individually replaced and those in which some of the parts are clustered together into a control module. To determine which model you have remove the outer face plate. If there is knob, pull it off first, then pry off the face plate with a small screwdriver. Modular units have holes in the module's face plate for test probes. If you see several holes, each marked with a letter, it is a modular unit. It is easier to work on this type of unit by first removing the entireicemakerfrom the freezer compartment. The unit is usually mounted to the freezer case by two or more screws. Remove the bottom screws first. While supporting the ice maker, remove the remaining top screws. Unplug the ice maker from the freezer cabinet if you have not already done so. Along the edge nearest the shutoff arm, a pin protrudes through the mounting plate . The arm pin has a spring under the mounting plate. Reduce the tension on the spring by moving the shutoff arm into the "on" position, down, against the ice maker.
Test the heater for resistance using amultitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each of the two terminals (or wires). The reading should be in the range of 60 to 90 ohms. If you get a significantly different reading, such as zero or infinity, then the mold heater is bad and needs to be replaced. Conduct this test with the refrigerator unplugged. Test the moldheaterfor resistance using amultitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Place one probe into the hole labeled "H" and the other probe into the hole labeled "L". The multitester should read in the range of 60 to 90 ohms.
Also be sure to check and test water valve with a meter for continuity and voltage..( a full 120 and nothing less) And a visual inspection for any ice build up or blockage in tubing and flow line. Remember u may get a close circuit reading of continuity however it may still be bad in that it may remain constantly closed and water keeps flowing more than suppose to. Hence chunks of ice build up.

Ice Maker doesn't work, condenser fan was not running


It could be the the control board or a broken wire in the door.

But if you hear the timer motor running then you are getting power to the ice maker.

Have you check the temperature in the freezer?

The freezer must be 5 degrees or below for the ice maker to work.

Here is a link on how to test the ice maker.

No power to icemaker


There is a bundle of wiring coming out of the ice maker and the black wire has a fuse in that bundle. If the fuse has blown it would indicate a defective ice maker motor or a short circuit somewhere inside of the ice maker.

The Water Dispenser suddenly stopped working, Ice will dispense ,however no water. GE model GSL25JFTAB5


Hi,
It tends to be the problem of the valve. Connection is not proper it is not allowing water to ice maker. The valve can be checked with a volt/ohm meter if you.

You can ohm the solenoid of the valve and see if the circuit is open. You can also use the meter to check voltage to the water valve when the ice maker cycle starts. No voltage if the ice makes cycles or if the ice maker never cycles would indicate a problem with the ice maker.It tends to be an open solenoid circuit in valve.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask us if you have any further queries.

Ice maker quit making ice. What could it be?


Wake up one morning and Boom no ice left in the bin. What happened and What can I do to fix it without calling someone?

It has no life.


sounds like a power problem, if is plugged into a power strip, try plugging into a wall.

also if you have or can borrow a volt meter check the power cord that way.

the power cord that goes into the printer , has a hole in it , put 1 of the volt meter probes in the hole
and the other probe touch the outside sliver part..

the voltage you should read, is written on the square part (the bigger part) of the power cord.

Ice maker for Kenmore model 532343 not working


Does your water have minerals?
Faulty Water Valve
Your ice maker is designed to fill with water for 6 to 8 seconds. Check to see that the ice maker is not sending power to the water inlet valve for a period longer than what you unit is designed for. Does your water have minerals?

Also check to see if the water inlet valve is closing too slowly. The power to the valve is being shut off in the correct amount of time, but due to wear and tear in the valve, it is closing too slow.

Check the timing on the value. Put a volt meter across the leads of the water inlet valve. Set the voltage range to cover the 120v voltage. Cycle the ice maker and watch the meter. When the ice maker begins to fill with water the meter will read voltage coming from the ice maker. Time the difference between when the voltage is cut from the valve and when the water quits filling the ice maker.

If the water shuts off immediately when the voltage is removed, the valve is probably good. Since it was off 10 days the particle build-up on the valve may be the problem since it could solidify. You could try working the valve back and forth or replace it.

If the valve closed quickly then the problem is the valve was opened too long.
If that is the case then you have an ice maker control problem. In that case see if the timing can be adjusted.

No ice and no water


Does it make Ice OK? If so the ice-water valve may be at fault if neither work.
Eliminate water filter or frozen line to reservoir.
Make sure you have water to water valve
Shut off water, remove line, open water line. Catch water in container and examine. Clean on particles let it flush out some more open and close til clean. Verify pressure and flow.
Still no water?
Check voltage with a volt meter at the fill valve behind the refrigerator.
Attach volt meter to the coil wire plug just insert probes into them. Then push the button on the door like your getting water. No volts? If has Ice maker pull off the other set of wires on water valve and recheck with door switch. Still no power? Problem in the ice - water door relay or control board.
If these check OK water valve is not opening when power applied replace water valve. Power shows good replace water valve.
