Mine does that. Ice is frozen to the drive shaft. Try using a long thin flat blade screwdriver under the ice bucket to try and lightly pry the bucket off. If it won't still budge then try removing all the ice you can and then running a hair dryer pointed at the bottom of the ice bucket where the metal part is. This will help melt the ice build up in there. 2nd option is pouring hot water in the bucket. This is all going to make a huge mess on the floor so get some towels. Eventually it will lift off while pushing the button in. The actual latches are plastic and not very long. It's the ice that's keeping it from lifting off.

ok first the dispencer doesnt affect ice production in any way onle diapencing so for get it the most common promblems will be the filter or the water valves on the back of the unit water and ice are on two different valves so because one works dont mean the other does also check the icemaker fill tube to see if its frozen a leaking icemaker water valve will cause it to freeze im also going to send you the procedure for checking the icemakermoudle its self do this after checking everything else remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure you hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycling remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didn’t fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and you may have to kind of twist the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it

Do you have to remove the screws on the ice-maker to remove the plastic icemaker service tray.


I believe you are talking about the shut off arm. You need to remove the lower freezer drawer. Pull it all the way forward and then lift up. The screws are under the icemaker.

Tip

Water in the freezer compartment


I had water leaking in to the freezer compartment of my LG french-door refrigerator (LFD25860). It was getting on to food in the main basket and embedding it in a block of ice, as well as puddling-up on the bottom of the freezer and eventually blocking the door from closing properly. Because the water seemed to be covering a wider area than you would expect from a blocked defroster drain I didn't believe that my problem was covered by the other FixYa recomendations -and it turned out I was right.
The problem turned out to be that the "funnel" that the water flows through to fill up the ice tray was blocked by a solid piece of ice. When the icemaker would call for more water it would flow down the clear tube (with the open slots on the top) hit the ice and spray/overflow in to the freezer compartment.
The solution was obviously to pop this ice out, but that did require me to remove the icemaker from the wall of the freezer compartment. To do this you
  • remove one screw from the bracket on the bottom of the icemaker
  • Slide the icemaker up and slip it off of the two screws with rubber grommets on them.
By the time I got to that stage I had already removed the basket from the main drawer and removed the pull out tray/basket from the drawer pulls (by simply lifting the plastic tab on the right side and lowering the plastic tab on teh left side). I am not sure if you can remove the icemaker without this step, but I believe so.
Also, if you want to entirely remove the icemaker from the freezer there is only one plug with wiring to undo. As I mentioned above, the water hose doesn't not connect to the icemaker, it ends above the "funnel" and the water drops in. So removal is much simpler than you might expect.

As for the cause of the ice block, I am not sure but I believe it was either because the ice maker made too much ise one time and some cubes could not pop out. When additional water entered the funnel it didn't flow in to the ice tray, backed up, and froze in the funnel. The other thought is that when the door was not closed properly while our grandparents were visiting, the ice melted and subsequently re-froze causing the problem.

MFI2266AEW icemaker removal


You have to replace that rocker switch in the new style ice maker they send you. There should be a spot for it. That ice maker is tricky to uninstall. Theres a plastic cover in the bottom left hand corner of that cavity. You need a flat head and stick it in the one hole it has to release a tab, then that whole assembly including the fan come out after you disconnect a few connectors.. This is the ice maker with that vent underneath of the ice maker, if I'm correct. This is a rather difficult repair, but if you manage to get the old ice maker out, you can work on the whole assembly on a counter and the disassemble will be a lot easier.

I have a GE Profile refrigerator, Model PFSS6PKWBSS, with icemaker on door. Water is collecting under Deli-draw and leaking down freezer door onto floor. How do I fix leak?


Hi

Try and access the ice dispenser assembly and check from where the water is leaking. You would need to disassemble the ice dispenser and ice maker to check this. The ice dispenser is located in the upper portion of the freezer compartment. This assembly stores ice made by the icemaker and dispenses ice on demand from the door dispenser target switch.
1. Remove the upper ice bucket tray.
2. Slide out the ice dispenser assembly.
3. Remove the ice cube solenoid linkage Phillips head screw and slide the linkage back.
4. Remove the ice crusher cover Phillips head screws (2) and remove the cover.
5. With a pair of pliers, twist off the backing plate tabs located on either side of the crusher.
6. With 2 small flat-blade screwdrivers, unlock the ice crusher locking tabs located at either side of the ice crusher.
7. Lift the ice crusher out of the bucket.
8. Remove the ice crusher back cover.
9. Remove the locking ring from the ice crusher auger.
10. Remove the plastic nut with a pair of pliers by turning it clockwise.
11. Remove the spacers and blades. The blades are numbered for reassembly.

Icemaker--
The icemaker is located in the upper rear of the freezer compartment and supplies ice to the dispenser tub.
1. Disconnect the icemaker cable connector.
2. Remove 1/4-in. icemaker mounting screws and slide out the icemaker.
This refrigerator is equipped with an Electronic Icemaker.

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

This diagram shows two screws on the top and there is one on the bottom. Loosen the screws and ice maker should lift off. You may just want to use a hairdryer to melt it and your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply is connected may be leaking letting the water drip into the ice maker and freezing when it gets there. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fW1010173-00005.png

My ice maker would not return to a level position after dumping out the ice. When the water turned on to refill the ice tray, it would run off the tilted ice tray and into the ice basket thus freezing all the ice cubes in the basket together. To remove the icemaker, there are two screws that hold the icemaker to the top of the freezer. Turn off the icemaker. Remove the left screw and loosen the right screw by removing the screw on the left. Slide the icemaker outward and it should come loose. Unplug the power connector from the icemaker to the freezer. The ice tray can be removed from the icemaker by gently pulling the tray to the right and the slot it goes into on the left side of the icemaker to the left. Once the tray is out of the assembly, inspect the round plastic shaft on the left side of the ice tray. Mine had two flat spots that were worn into the plastic from use. I used a dremel tool with a round barrel sanding disk at the tools lowest speed to remove the flat spots and decrease the overall diameter of the shaft which stopped the tray from sticking. Reassemble the ice tray in the icemaker.

You may can take the plastic end cover off and find the mechanical switch which is supposed to be pushed when you raise the arm and cut it off. Being that old a slight adjustment (bending) may fix your problem.

Icemaker won't fill


its a tricky one to diag, this IDI{in door ice maker}. id be interested to see something in the ice maker head assy itself, under the right side bottom of the ice maker asssy is a 1/4in screw, holding a cover for the wire harness,if you remove the screw and the plastice cover it will allow you to slide the ice maker assy foward, youll need to depress a small plastic tab on the left side wall preventing the ice maker from coming out any more than an inch or so. After that the ice maker will twist out and by inserting a screwdriver into ice maker cover you be able to "pop" off the front white cover to reveal the inner workings. a problem with some of their modules is that the center white gear actually cracks off the module head itself, if thats the case when you open the cover, youll need to replace the ice maker assy

Icemaker not making ice


First thing to check is to see if the optics are working properly. This is the red flashing light on right hand side of freezer wall. Close the flipper door, be sure not to block the beam, and the light should go to solid red. If it does then the optics are ok. If it continues to blink then that is your problem. If optics check ok then pull ice maker out and remove the white plastic cover. It just pulls off. Look at the center of the gear wheel and see if one of the plastic tabs is either broken or if they are sort of twisted and touching eachother. If any of these things with the gear have happened then that module will need to be replaced along with the ice maker thermostat. If your not sure how to replace these parts then just replace the whole ice maker. That is much easier and not much more costly.
After changing the parts or the ice maker out follow these steps to start the ice maker thru a cycle. 1. Remove the ice maker from the cradle but leave the harness connected. Remove the front cover from the module. Unplug the refrigerator. Get a small jumper wire with bare ends and jump T and H on the module, leave the jumper in and set the ice maker on the shelf. Close the door. Now plug the refer back in and wait 30 seconds. Open the door and the ice-maker should be cycling. Remove the jumper, put the module cover back on and set it back in the cradle. The fill should take place when the ejector blades reach the 12:00 position. Follow these steps exactly in order
