Check with an identical unit to see how that one moves. Yours may be dislocated. The lever arm probably contacts small plastic parts in the timer that could be out of place. Ice makers aren't too tough to take out and check out in a more comfortable work location. Just put a towel to catch screws.

ICE MAKER STOPPED MAKING ICE,JUST GOT LAST WEEK,MADE ONE CONTAINER OF ICE THEN STOPPED


Try moving the ice maker shut-off valve lever 4-5 times. Move it up and down, or on and off. It tells the ice machine is full. You may be able to reset it. Look on the front. Do you have water out of the tap in front?

What is the model number of your refrigerator the ice container that has the auger in there has a lever that goes through the bottom of the ice container and then into an opening in the back where it slides into Square opening that moves the lever up and down when you switch from crushed to cubed it changes the position of that lever. Open the door and press the light switch to turn off the light and have someone pressed the dispense ice button with the ice bucket out can you see that part move up and down. Switch it from crushed to Cubed while watching and pressing the dispense ice button. Does it moved? Is there ice build up over that area that may prevent that actuator for moving the lever?

Not making ice


Probably dirt or hard water stopped up the supply tube bringing water to the unit. It's very small and doesn't take much to clog it up. Also make sure the lever in the ice making unit is down. If it made ice before and was full, the lever moved up and shut off the ice maker and now needs to be reset in the down position.

Check the plastic lever on the door. It usually moves closed when the door is shut to turn ice maker on. The lever can freeze and stop the ice maker.

Ice Maker not working.


Hi Victoria_942: If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, please check these, in this order:
1. Your ice maker may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.
2. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.
3. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer - but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!
4. Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if


the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it
Should these suggestions prove ineffective, I would recommend contacting an authorized service technician that will be able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your ice maker.

    In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

  • The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary.

    Ice maker not working


    Depending on the ice maker style, they typically work off a motor timer. The timer motor rotates to set up the ice making process... starting with letting water into an empty ice mold tray, allowing ample time for that water to freeze and then to rotate that mold so that the cubes fall out into the bin. In conjunction with that process, a small heater is turned on to release the frozen cubes from the tray. The 'ice tray full' lever signals the system to stop making ice so you may want to verify that the lever is down and not causing the ice maker to stop, If that's down then I suggest you monitor the position of the motor gearset underneath an access cover. With power applied, the gears should rotate and cycle thru an ice making process. If it does and ice fails to fall out, your heater may be defective. Hope that helps...

    Ice maker won't stop making ice


    OK, there's two possible issues but you have to figure out what is happening. Does the ice maker continue to make ice forever and would fill up the whole freezer section in time OR does the ice maker just "over make" ice that overfills the bin which then falls out? If the ice maker just keeps making ice you need the motor module replaced but if it can be turned off by moving the lever up then you need the "modified lever assy." that is on our service bulletins.
