Ice make not harvesting

The ice maker is not making ice on my GE side by side. The unit is a TFX model. The ice machine was working and would build up ice at the water tube outlet, yet still make ice. Now it does nothing. Last night it filled with water, but never harvested.

    I had to thaw out my kenmore water supply tube with a hair dryer every so often 30 years ago. They are improved now.

    What is your freezer temp. It won't dump until the icemaker internal thermostat says it is cold enough.

BROKEN INFRARED ICE CONTROL - ON WHIRLPOOL SIDE BY SIDE. CAN I REPLACE THAT PART?


Hi,

The part you need to replace is 4389102 this comes with both boards and replace them as a pair. I have a question though, is the harvest fingers in the ice maker at position like a clock? Also to confirm the flashing of the light when the flap is depressed it 2 flashes and a pause? Not 1 flash and a pause, this means unit is harvesting and the ice maker should be moving and if not the ice maker could have a broken gear. This control unit could run you about 100 buck so make sure this is what you need before your purchase. Good Luck

HOW DOES A MODEL 315P ICE MACHINE GO INTO HARVEST?


The ice machine has a HARVEST TIMER. You can adjust the harvest time, it comes from the factory for 3 minutes. You should not have to adjust it 3 minutes is plenty of time if every thing is working right. If the machine is operating making ice but not falling in storage bin then check these possible cause.
1. ICE may be stuck in the evaporator and the unit is " frozen up "
POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Clean and sanitize.
Possible Cause: Harvest time set too short - timer needs adjustment.
2. Harvest timer bad: replace harvest timer.

Scotsman CM3 does not harvest and does not refill


Remove the ice thickness probe that is hanging at the top of the evaporator plate and clean really good put it back push the freeze tab. If the ice is still getting to thick and not causing the machine to go into a harvest then replace the probe , make sure when you do this to set the thickness by using a 1/8 inch drill bit, lay the bit flat between the evaporator plate and the probe turn the 1/4 screw in or out to achieve the 1/8 inch. The probe is what sets the machine into a harvest, if the ice is not building up enough to cause the water to come into contact whit the probe long enough then it will not go into a harvest. if the ice is getting to thick and the water should be running over the probe it should have went into a harvest if not then the probe is not sensing it to tell the CM3 to go into a harvest.

Does a Hoshizaki Model F-1001MWH have a Defrost cycle? As far as I know the "defrost" is the harvest cycle correct?


Ice makers defrost is the harvest cycle. The purpose of a defrost cycle is to clear any ice build up, right?

I have a brand new (2 days) Frigidaire Gallery series, 23CU side by side that is not making enough ice. We are getting water from the door, the ice maker will only drop about 3 times in 24 hours. the...


Good day,
Light usage in a cool kitchen will reduce ice production substantially.
When the ice maker harvests, it turns on a calrod unit located on it's bottom, that frees the cubes, and as well the heat from the calrod heats up an internal thermostat in the ice maker to a temperature in excess of 70 degrees.
Then it stays at rest, until the cycle thermostat reaches 12 to 14 degress and then performs another harvest cycle.
If the machine runs little, and the fan in the freezer is not circulating cold air, the harvest times will be extended.
Turning the freezer colder will always help.
There is a possibility, the thermostat in the ice maker is out of calibration, and the ice maker needs replaced. But try the settings first, and give it a week or two, before calling for service.
You have a lot iof time under warranty to resolve this issue.

Thank you for using FixYa.

GE TFX22ZR side by side. ice maker not making ice


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

Ice Maker Won't Stop Making Ice


There is an adjustment for the "harvest" bar (The bar you lifted up). That bar you are lifting up tells the ice-maker that the cubes have fallen into the ice storage and starts the ice-making cycle over. It is also the Limit switch for the ice level in the storage container ... if it stays up for preset time determined by the manufacturer it stops making ice... most all ice-machines use the same devices. they vary little in design. Sometimes you can just gently bend the bar down to the point where it turns-off the machine at the level you want ... unless you can get to the adjustment hinge you can adust it there. For the fact it goes off when you lift it all the way up tells me the harvest switch is turning the ice-maker off.
