SOURCE: Not getting any ice

Hello here is how to fix the problem, first you have to remove the ice bin then then press the freeze temp and power cool buttons for about 12 seconds until the display panel switches to the option mode and you hear a beep.

A number under "Frige temp" corresponds to the option number. Press the fridge temp. button to increase the number and the power cool button to increase the number and the power cool button to decrease the number. set the option number to 3

now you have to select the input data to control the water supply time. Press the freeze temp button to increase the value. Press the power freeze bottom to decrease the value. Choose the right amount of water supplied to the ice tray which should be to where the water level is even with the rib on the inside of the tray.

input data = 00, 5 secs/01, 4 secs/02, 3 secs/ 03, 6 secs/ 04,7 secs/05,8secs

Let em know if this helps or not.

If the ice maker has completely stopped producing ice.

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.

If the ice maker is producing ice poorly.

When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

My samsung ice maker is making ice, but not dropping it, what can we do?


http://www.appliancepartspros.com/samsung-assy-cover-dispenser-da97-08118p-ap5651766.html
This is your Touch pad. On it using only two fingers (nothing else touching the fridge) Press and hold energy saver, and the lighting button at the same time for 5 seconds. All of the LEDS should flash on the display, this is error code mode. Hold it down until either all of the LEDs go blank, or unless one of the little temperature lines start flashing. If they do flash you probably need a new ice maker. If they don't, honestly, it still sounds like the control is still working because it's supplying the ice maker with power. If the display goes blank for 30 seconds, the fridge will reset causing it to start operating normally again, but it always feels good to see if the unit will actually throw the error code for you. DA97-08059A is the part number available here..

Before ordering this part, also verify the freezer is cold enough (-8 all the way to 10 degrees F will be cold enough for the fridge to induce a cycle of the ice maker, any warmer temps this will not work. If the ice maker doesn't solve the problem, Then we point the finger at the main board, but have never replaced the board on this model to solve this issue. These ice makers fail enough to keep a truck stock one at work.

Refrigerator icemaker repair


The ice maker does its own thang. All it needs is power and a good water valve to supply the water. Also you paid the water bill helps too. Anywho when the temp in the ice maker mold drops below 25f the harvest cycle begins. The mold heater is activated and loosens the ice. When the ice starts moving the heater shuts down and the motor carrys over and drops the ice. The ice maker then asked for and gets water from the water valve. So what goes wrong? Watervalve solenoid burnt out, water valve dripping like a faucet make a stalagmite in the fill tube blocking fresh water to ice mold. If that is ok then something inside the icemaker went haywire, replace it. When replacing the ice maker replace the watervalve. Note: if temp inside icebox freezer does not get to 25f any ice maker new or existing ain't gonna make ice. Be sure to clean the coils down by the compressor and the kickplate so the maximum amount of airflow is running down there and make sure the cardboard panel back there is in place.

Kenmore WR30X0318 Ice Maker Stopped Making Ice


The ice maker uses a internal thermostat that starts the cycle of dropping the ice and refilling with tap water. If your water control valve works filling the ice maker then the problem is the ice maker itself that will need replaced. Unfortuantly the ice maker you have has no rebuildable parts and will need to be replace with a=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly

Not making ice,checked optics ,good ,water valve coil tested good, no restrictionsbut i get no water in tray,also freezer temp is 8 degrees.


OK you mentioned the ice maker had no cubes or not making cubes, try filling tray with water from tap. Let freeze and if the ice drops into ice bin the ice maker is OK. Most times the ice maker thermostat is at fault (pt. 27 in photo) if not cycling. Read OHM's between both coils and they should be very near to same reading, if not replace water control valve=> 4389177 by applying first 120VAC to see if valve opens. If water goes into ice maker this way or OHMs between the two are nearly the same your Ice Maker=>2198597 Ice Maker Assembly may need replaced.

Ice maker not working on Kenmore Model # 106.54563300 Water comes through water dispenser fine Water came pouring out through ice dispenser door so I flipped bar up to turn it off Removed front box held in...


First the arm has to be in the down position. It sounds like you said theres water in the ice maker. If thats the case then it should have frozed. The ice cannot drop unless the ice maker heater comes on. Then the ice maker scoops the ice and drops into the resoviour thingy. If you have ice in the ice maker tray but no ice in the bucket then the ice maker is defective.

No water going to the ice maker


You could have either the ice maker causing this or the side of the water control valve that feeds the ice maker is defective. Here is a simple test to see which is causing the problem. Fill ice maker with tap water. If after the water freezes the cubes drop into the ice bin then the water does not refill it will need the dual water control valve replaced. If ice just sits there then the ice maker needs to be fixed or replaced depending on your Maytags model number. Let me know the model number and results, Thanks, Sea Breeze

My lfx25950 is not making ice


Most likely your water control valve is defective on the side for the ice maker. There are times that there is a slow leak and water freezes in the fill tube that fills the ice maker. That can be fixed by defrosting the fill tube with a hair dryer until the water valve is replaced. The next like ly problem would be a defective ice maker and sometimes there are problems getting parts for the LG brand. Do this, fill the ice maker with tap water turn on and let freeze. If it drops the ice the ne dual water control valve needs replaced. If it does nothing then the ice maker is the problem. I will be back soon with part numbers and where to find the parts you need. Try the test and if I am helpful please rate my solution, Thanks, Sea breeze
