Need to check the heater on the ice maker with ohm meter to see if it shows resistance. If no resistance then replace the whole ice maker. If resistance is good then the best thing to do is replace the ice maker module and thermostat (bimetal).

Ice Maker: water freezes in tray, but no ice is dumped to the bin. Unit is NOT trying to add water to full tray.


Check the freezer temperature. It must be below 10F in order for the Icemaker to operate. If you find that the temperature is above that, your problem is not the icemaker, but something else in your cooling system.

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator with an ice maker and when the icemaker is filling with water it leaks from the front of the tray into the ice storage bin.


1. icemaker is not level. (check and re-level)
2. icemaker has a crack in the mold.(replace i/m)
3. Water level set too high.(remove front cover and adjust water level screw counterclockwise)

My samsung model #RS2578BB AUTOMATIC ICE MAKER IS NOT MAKING ICE PLS ADVISE


TOOLS NEEDED:
Eyes (fair to good shape)
#2 phillips screw driver
Flashlight

Lets assume it was working at one time right? And the FREEZER temp is BELOW 20degs

REMOVE storage bin to see icemaker.

LOCATE test button on underside or rightside of clear motor asembly.
(should be black)

Press until icemaker starts, then release button. Watch the tray twist and return to upright the should fill with water.

If icemaker worked: ICE SENSOR MAYBE BAD> ORDER NEW ICEMAKER IF THE ICE DOES NOT EJECT AFTER 4

If icemaker did not Start by pressing the test button.: UNPLUG the frig or go the Main Service Panel to the house (BREAKER BOX) and shut off the power and verify NO LIGHTS INSIDE THE FRIG>

Remove the concealed screws holding the icemaker to the ceiling.

PULL the icemaker forward to release icemaker. Using the Flashlight
LOCATE the wiring harness on the ceiling. Look for the RELEASE and Squeeze and pull down. Inspect the electrical pins to make sure all pins are equal and secured. If all is well there?
THE PROBLEM COULD BE either: ICEMAKER or Main PC Board

I would order a Icemaker assembly first since it is the least expensive.

I have a Whirlpool refrige. side by side and the ice maker has stopped working. The infrared light keeps blinking. I have unplugged it a couple of times as well as turned the infrared off. Any advice?


The laser , is supposed to blink . This laser , tells the icemaker to stop making ice , when the bin is full . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . If it doesn't dump the cubes into the bin , the icemaker is bad . Or , if there is ice in the bin , which hasn't dumped , the icemaker is bad . If the icemaker dumps the ice ( from water pour ) , then look above the fill cup , and see if the black fill tube is frozen . If so , then replace the water valve and turn the freezer temp down slightly . It will take several days for this fill line inside freezer to thaw . If icemaker dumps , and black tube NOT frozen , replace the water valve . The valve , is where the wall water line connects to on the refrig

ICEMAKER ON WHIRLPOOL ED2GHGXMQ


Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.

Whirlpool Ice Maker Won't release ice


Jetguy77,

I have a 1993 year (16 years old now) Whirlpool side-by-side with icemaker, Model ED22PW. I have had similar problems with the icemaker - water goes in, freezes, but ice does not eject from tray. It has happened to this unit 2 times since 1993. It turns out the problem is not the thermostat. It is the icemaker motor module. The icemaker has a small synchronous (clock) motor that rotates the ice ejector. When it goes bad, the ejector does not rotate, either because the module timer had failed or the motor itself has failed. The solution is to go to your nearest applinace parts dealer and by a new "icemaker motor module" for Whirlpool Model (your model here). Mine cost $58.85 the last time I replaced it in 2006. To install the new module, you will need to remove the icemaker from the refrigerator. Mine has 3 screws that attach it to the side. Also unplug the power & control cable. The water tube slides out when you pull the unit forward. When you get it out, it is then easy to remove the motor module and insert the new one. You may have to reset the timer on the module to get the tray to fill completely.

ICE DISPENSER


Dmuehr,

Are you sure it is a leak. Is the solenoid actually cutting off BEFORE the tray is full of water? If not, it is not a leak. The filling time for the icemaker water tray (where the ice freezes) varies depending on the local water pressure. With higher pressure, the tray may overfill. Your icemaker motor module timer may be set too long for your specific water pressure, so that the tray overfills. There is an adjustment on the module for shorter or longer fill time. You will need to remove the icemaker (3 screws probably) and reset the timer. It may take 2 or 3 tries to get it so the trays are about 80 to 90% full.

Ice machine not making ice


Hi, everak11,
Three possible solutions for you.
1: No water coming in from inlet valve. Check voltage on inlet if you have voltage and no water then replace valve.
2:Icemaker not cycleing. Lift the arm on the icemaker to shut it off and leave it for about an hour. Come back in and turn the icemake back on by lowering the arm. If the icemaker does not begin a new cycle and the arm start rising then the problem is most likely an icemaker. Replace Icemaker
3:Refrigerator not cold enough. If the freezer is not getting cold enough the icemaker will not cycle. Check the temperature in the freezer and make sure it is getting down to 0 degrees. If not then you may have another problem with your refrigerator. I hope this helps you, Let me know if you have any other questions or symptoms. Mike

Hotpoint HSS25GFP icemaker stopped working


are u sure that model # Is right.. DOnt come up in any of my model data bases Seems like u might of got a bad icemaker.. if the water is coming into the icemaker from the water valve.. icemaker has to have power, to do that... all funtions after that would be controled by the iceaker .. The only other thing i can think of is your refrigerator has to be a certain temp to activate icemaker somewhere around 0 give or take some to be safe
