SOURCE: GE ICE MAKER, VERY LITTLE ICE,

I had this problem with my GE ice maker not working and it was an unbelievably easy fix. If you have the same ice maker then you will see a green light by the power switch. Below the ice maker is a "paddle" ice sensor. The paddle is attached to the ice maker and there is a coil type tension spring. If your paddle is loose, make sure the end of the spring (the pointy wire end) is inserted into a small hole. You probably can't see the hole but move the wire end until it pops into the small hole. You should now have tension on the paddle. At this point I had heard that the freezer light bulb may be drawing too much current for the ice makers motherboard. I removed the bulb and, UNBELIEVABLY, the ice maker began making ice! Try removing or replacing the LIGHT BULB first!

Does not make ice


Either the ice maker is not calling for water or the ice maker water valve is not working, there are many different types of water valves so its very dificult to tell you what to do without a model number or picture of the valve, but generaly speaking if you VERY CAREFULLY put 120V to a water valve it should open and alow water to flow, you can try this for the valve that has a water line going to the ice maker and see if it lets water go to the ice maker, sometimes there are two valves that must open, one main valve and then another for either the water dispensor or the ice maker. a better first test might be to test the water valve for resistance across the coil and compair it to another coil and see if its close-ish. also you can test some ice makers and see if they are putting 120V to the water valve by bypassing the bimetal and causing the ice maker to go into a cycle, but again a model number is required to know what kind of ice maker you have., even a picture would help

I just put in a new water valve for my ice maker , water is pumping out of the ice maker inside of frezzer.


Hi,
I would Assume you used the correct valve for the model you have, and If that is the correct valve, your ice maker is calling to power-up the valve. To test this, disconnect the water valve power (two wires) put a meter in them, cycle the ice maker. Count how long the ice maker calls for water. Should be about 5-6 seconds or 2/3 cup of water. You can test this with a meter or a measuring cup under the valve and cycle the ice maker.
If you get too much water then - is the ice maker still calling for water or did the valve not close will be the result.
Good Luck

The water is not coming any more into the ice maker unit, water is available at water dispenser. The filter has been replaced and system purged. The ice maker continues to cycle, but after it cycles...


It can be issue with water fill valve.

Ice maker stopped making ice or filling with water . For this problem you have check few things. First thing, is the water filling in the ice maker chamber and then ice maker not making ice? Or, the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber so it's not making ice. If the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber then it's clear that ice is not getting made due to no water in the chamber. For no water filling, the problem is either water supply valve turned off so water is not filling. Turn on the water supply and it will fill. But if the water supply is turned on then the other possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from which the water runs and enters the ice maker chamber. If this tube is blocked then water will not enter the chamber. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is water valve at the back of ice maker unit. This water valve is for letting the water in the ice maker. The water valve open only for 7 seconds and in this time the water fills in the ice maker chamber and then water valve closes and the same procedure runs again in the next water filling cycle.------- For your information I will mention that there are two valves. One is the main valve the back of the fridge section. This main valve lets the water enter the refrigerator and other valve is at the back of ice-maker section. This other valve lets the water to enter the ice maker. In most of the cases the fault is water valve at the back of ice maker section. ------------- The other above possibilities which I gave you is water not filling in ice-maker chamber so it's not making ice. But now consider that water is filling in ice maker chamber but it's still not making ice. Then the problem is ice maker unit itself. This unit is controlled by main board. But in most cases if water is filling the ice maker but it's not making ice then its faulty ice maker unit. So see if the problem is water not entering the ice maker then the water fill tube is frosted by ice or the water valve at the back of ice maker is faulty. Replace the valve. ------------

You can get required parts from sears part direct online site or from repairclinic.com site.

This will help. Thanks. Helpmech.

Ice maker will not make ice,have water but no ice.


Many people see this as a problem but if you take a look you have two separate controls for the ice and water system. So what's next? Look for a model number around the fresh food section door and sometimes your model number you may have looked at it every time you open the door and did not realize that is what that is. Locating Your Model Number or lets go to Maytag=> HERE and in the pull down choose if your model is a side by side or other than a side by side. Neat Tool! So now back to your ice maker and being the way most ice makers are they have a side to the water valve on their own somewhere near the water control valve on back of your refrigerator and near floor on most. The ice maker in most cases tells that water valve when the ice maker needs water again so many times it is the problem anyway. If your ice maker has cubes in it and still will not drop the cubes then it is the possibly the ice maker causing the problem but if you fill the ice maker with tap water and it freezes and then dumps cubes into the ice bin then the problem is the water control valve on the back of your refrigerator. Here is a short clip below. And here is a search for=> Maytag Refrigerator Water Control Valves and a search for=> Maytag Refrigerator Ice Makers I hope this has helped, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Model # trt18GREW5 ice maker will not make ice, and no water flowing thru valve w/ water supply on and water tube to ice maker disconnected


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Water doesn't flow unless the ice maker calls for water which it does immediately after dumping the previous load of ice.

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.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

ICE MAKER NOT WORKING ,MODEL #gss25lgma ww


The problem is most likely the water control valve on the rear of your refrigerator. You can test the ice maker by filling with water and let freeze. If ice dumps then the water valve must be replaced. Your model has 3 different choices of water control valves. If the ice maker does nothing but freeze the water and not cycle or dump the ice then I would say the thermostat inside the ice maker is defective. Thanks, Sea Breeze

No water to ice maker but there is to the water dispenser in the door. Whirlpool model ED22PQ


This could be two reasons. The water control valve that sends water to the ice maker or the ice maker is not sending the signal to the water control valve to send water to ice maker There are 2 valves on back of your refrigerator one for ice and the other is for the dispenser. If ice maker is empty then the signal should be sent to back control valve and 120 volts should open the valve for about 4 seconds. If that valve is bad nothing will happen.You can test the ice maker by filling with tap water and if it cycles until time to refill and no water fills the tray then I think the water control valves need replaced.
