Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Ice maker doesn't work after removing all the ice.

We emptied our in-door ice container on April 8, 2009. It is now April 16 and we have not heard water running nor has any ice been produced. This has happened in the past but if we giggled the ice container in the door, it would activate the process again. We have turned it off and on several times. Thanks for any help you can give.

    Sorry - I meant Jiggled, as in wiggled. I did what you said and now I hear ice being made. Yippee. Thanks for your help. You're great.

    I am grafalvarez. I tried the technician's suggestion. At first it worked but after producing six ice cubes, it stopped again. There really isn't a place where the ice cube bin touches the refrigerator. The mechanism that connects the refrigerator to the bin is in a wheel shape that I assume is interlocking, top and bottom. The bin closes nicely on the bottom portion but no ice cubes are being produced. It's getting very frustrating.

What do you mean by "giggled the ice container in the door?" 
If I get it well, remove the ice container and look for any switch in its holder( where the container touches the refrigerator body). If you find one check if it's not broken, then try pressing/pushing it. If it seems to work normally, put the container back and try to push it towards that switch to make sure it presses it.

I hope I helped

Why is my icemaker not working on Sears Kenmore 50562991


Two of my refrigerators stopped making ice because of frozen water lines going to the ice maker inside of the freezer door. I thawed the lines by unplugging the refrigerator and used a hair drier around the ice maker till all the frost was gone. After I plugged it in I heard water going to the ice maker. If you remove the ice bin you can check the ice tray to see if it has ice in it. If it is empty it is not getting water. It could also be a bad Solenoid Water Valve.

The ice door will not open like it used to. Now I have to reach in with my fingers to open it to get ice through the door.


Good Morning Misty, thank you for your post!

It is a good idea to clean the ice dispenser and ice container if the ice dispenser sticks or before contacting an experiencing technician to assist further.

1. First, stop ice production by lifting the wire signal arm to the "up" or OFF position (side-mounted) or the ice maker's On/Off power switch turned Off-set to the "O" position (rear-mounted).


2. Remove ice container by lifting up and out. Empty and carefully clean the container with mild detergent. Rinse with clear water. Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners. Allow ice container to dry completely before replacing in the freezer.


3. Remove ice chips and clean the shelf and chute that supports the ice container.


4. Replace the ice container. Lower the wire signal arm on the ice maker to the "down" or ON position (side-mounted) or the ice maker's On/Off power switch is turned On-set to the "I" position. (rear-mounted) and the ice maker will resume production.


I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way.

How to make the ice maker work


Problems with Ice Maker/Water Dispenser
If you are not getting ice, make sure the water valve is open and the ice shutoff switch or arm is not in the "Off"
position. Inspect the ice ejector arm for blockage and remove any trapped ice with a plastic spoon. If you recently
emptied the ice container, remember that it takes your refrigerator up to 24 hours to produce ice.
Low water pressure is the major cause of problems with the water/ice door dispenser. Low water pressure can cause
inadequate water flow and small or hollow ice cubes. Check the water line for kinks that may interfere with water
flow and make sure the water valve is open. A dirty water filter can color the water and ice cubes, impede water
flow or cause water to have an off taste so remove, clean and replace it.
If water is leaking from the door dispenser, make sure the water glass remains under the spout until the water
shuts off completely. If you recently changed the water filter, air that was left in the line may cause water to
spurt from the dispenser. To flush the water line, let water run from the dispenser for approximately three minutes
or until you draw out 1.5 gallons of water. Try to find a container that will fit under the dispenser spout so you
do not have to start and stop to empty the container.

Have a nice day my friend : )

NEED PROCEDURE FOR REMOVING THE ICE MAKER FOR INSPECTION AND TROUBLESHOOTING. FRIG IS NEW...ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE !!!!!


Are you sure you have the ice bin properly in place?

Ice bin must be locked in place for proper ice dispensing. If necessary, turn auger driver behind ice bin counterclockwise to properly align ice bin with auger driver.


• Press the switch ON to activate ice maker. Slide bin into guide rails located on either side of the enclosure. Push the ice bin in until resistance is felt. Raise the front slightly and push the ice bin completely in. An audible "click" is heard when the ice bin is located correctly.


• After freezer section reaches between 0° to 2° F (-18° to -17° C), ice maker fills with water and begins operating. You will have a complete harvest of ice

approximately every hour.

• Allow approximately 3 to 6 hours after installation to receive first harvest of ice.

• Discard ice created within the first 12 hours of operation to verify system is flushed of impurities.

• Stop ice production by pressing the ON/OFF switch located on the front of the ice maker.

• The first one or two batches will probably contain undersized and irregular cubes because of air in the supply line.

• When the ice cubes are ejected it is normal for several cubes to be joined together at the ends. They can easily be broken apart. The ice maker will

continue to make ice until the supply of ice cubes raises the ice maker arm, shutting the ice maker off.

• Certain sounds may accompany the various cycles of the ice maker. The motor may have a slight hum, the cubes will rattle as they fall into an empty storage bin and the water valve may click or "buzz" occasionally.

Ice is frozen in the chute of my on door ice maker. I cannot remove the unit from the door because of this


Very carefully push the button on the side and pull and wiggle hard. Ice may go flying everywhere you will have to clean up the mess and then rotate and clean out the chute rotate the clamp and empty the ice container. You may need to run water through the shoot make sure you dry it before replacing the unit.

Water dispenser works, ice maker makes ice but doe not dispense


Remove the ice bucket/container from inside the freezer compartment. Examine underneath at the front of the container to see if ice cubes are lodged between the metal blades. If cubes are caught in this area, they will prevent ice from dropping into the glass/cup.

I have a side-by-side (MDL: 106.53552202). My ice maker has stopped working... I do get water from the door. The ice container is empty, the switch is turned ON.


there could be a blockage of frozen water in the fill tube of the ice maker.
if there is no blockage then the nex thig to check is the main water valve that supplies the water to the ice maker.
you can check the power from the main pcb board to the ice maker and make sure you have current to the ice maker
if all else fails replace the ice maker
i hope this has helped in some way good luck
