    Have you moved the wire bail on the icemaker up and down to see if that changes anything? Be gentle...

My freezer is not freezing anymore please help as can not afford a new one ..thank you


Hi,
Follow the steps mentioned below to solve the problem:
First remove the ice bin and look inside the mold of the ice maker to see if it is full of ice. If the ice sensing arm is down ( on position) and the ice maker is full of ice, there is a failure inside the ice maker and the ice maker should be replaced.
If there is no ice in the ice maker, look at the fill tube on the rear of the ice maker. If the fill tube is frozen up the ice maker can't fill.
You can defrost the fill tube with a hair dryer.
The water valve on the rear of the refrigerator supplies water to the water dispenser and the ice maker. Since the water dispenser is working, the only line that could be blocked runs up the back of the cabinet and attaches to the fill tube for the ice maker. The water valve could be bad and not sending water to the ice maker.
If the fill tube freezes again you should replace the water valve.
Hope this helps.

My icemaker has stopped receiving water


it sounds like your water valve is bad. you have a double water valve - one side operates the ice maker and the other side operates the water dispenser. the ice maker side of the valve is bad.

you can manually pour a little water in the ice maker ice mold and wait an hour or so - if it dumps the ice then you know for sure that the ice maker is cycling and water is not getting to the ice maker from the water valved

Water is not filling ice cube maker


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.


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.

Once the ice mold has water in it, it may start cycling when it freezes.

If the fill tube is blocked with ice, the water inlet valve is leaking and needs to be replaced.

Ice maker won't send water to unit. Solenoid is good


Make sure the fill tube where the water goes into the ice mold is not full of ice. Your old valve may have been leaking and it will freeze in the fill tube. Other than than maybe start the ice maker working by filling it with water and see if it dumps and refills.
You can swap the wires on the inlet valves and try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker letting you know the valve works and the line is clear.

Ice maker not working


check and make sure there is no water or ice in the ice-maker mold ,if not pour 5 oz. of water into it , if the ice-maker dumps the ice out in under 2 hours then you have a problem with your water valve , you can also check and make sure the inlet fill tube entering the the mold isn't iced up

Whirlpool gold moder GC5SHEXN503 side by side-ice maker not producing ice anymore--water dispenser works fine--laser lites seem ok---no ice jam--no water filling ice molds


Put some water in the ice maker and see if it will kick a batch out. If it does make a batch but does not make any more then replace the water valve. NOTE: the water valve is a dual purpose valve that supplys water in the door and supplys the ice maker. If the ice maker does not kick out a batch then something is wrong with the ice maker.One easy component to replace is the ice mold thermostat.

Ice Maker Infrared light doesn't light


Each mold tray has a heating element that is turned on to free the ice cubes from the mold tray and allow them to fall into the ice bucket when the tray is rotated into harvest position. Sounds like that is not being turned on... or is defective..

Ice maker


the first problem is solved by reducing the amount of water that pours into the ice tray. the ice maker should have an adjustment for this. pry off the cover and look for a screw adjustment. they usually adjust volume by cw is more and ccw is less water. the last problem "melting ice" is related to the first. one way that I know how these work is a complete cycle time adjustment. the final step of dispensing is to turn on a low wattage heater to help pop the cubes out. now if the timer is running too slow, not only does too much water come in, but the heater is turned on for too long and causing "melting ice". Imagine a clock running with various events triggered by the clock's rotating switch that turns on certain components at the proper time and leaves them on for a finite time. your clock may be too slow.
