Hi, Yes you can. When the icemaker cycles, do you hear the inlet valve buzzing? If you blew through the line that goes from the inlet valve to the icemaker and it is open, sounds like the inlet valve is bad.

Model #WSF26C2EXY02. Why is ice maker not making ice?


When the ice-tray is full it pushes 'UP' a lever that shuts the water supply off. When you move the lever down all goes back to normal.

Ice and water keeps coming out


Cup lever isn't returning to the off or close position completely. Suggest checking for rusty spring, dirty parts restricting lever and other parts there from moving freely. Could be the switches are worn out as well. Dis-assemble and clean all parts and inspect or replace old worn switches. Inspect ice drop/ flap door for mildew, sticky residue from drinks and ice build up.

GE refrigerator is not making ice


There are several types of ice makers with the same model number. Some of my questions may seem over - the - top, but I do not know your level of ability. Do not take offense.

Did this ice maker ever work before, or is it a newly installed maker or a factory installed maker in a new fridge? Have you moved the power switch to on? If yours has an LED power indicator, is it off, blinking or on? Off means there's no power to the maker - you'll need to get the maker powered up before going further (make sure the electrical power connector is mated fully). Blinking means cubes have become stuck in the maker. You'll have to shut the maker off, remove the cubes then power up again. On means it is powered and is working normally. Is the freezer compartment set to maintain a temperature lower than 15 degrees F (-9 C)? The ice maker will not make ice unless the temperature is below 15 F (-9 C). The space under the maker must remain clear of obstructions so that the sweeper arm is not blocked (when blocked indicates a full ice container and will halt ice production until the arm can move freely again). The maker may need as many as 3 cycles (approx 6 hours) before all the air in the ice maker's water lines have been purged completely.

Listen for the solenoid valve to operate. Every couple of hours, this valve should operate and an audible click on and click off heard after a several seconds (as long as set on the ice maker cube size adjustment knob). When this solenoid has clicked on, water should be flowing through the lines and filling the ice maker. If not, there is an obstruction that must be cleared. A dirty or improperly installed filter, pinched line, and even ice can interrupt flow to the ice maker. You might need to remove the ice maker from the freezer to check the water supply line that feeds it for the presence of ice. Melt / clear as needed.

I just hooked up the ice maker to the water line and put the lever down on the icemaker. The water has not filled the ice maker. Is there something I need to do further? The model # is 596.765 73600


  • here are some things to check for, please be very careful and only to this if you disconnect the power supply.

  • 1 Inspect the shut off arm located on the side of the ice maker. This arm should move up and down with a slight resistance when pushing upward. Make sure that this lever is not frozen to the side of the ice maker preventing it from dispensing ice. In addition, if the arm move loosely up and down, then it is broken and must be replaced.

  • 2 Verify that the ice maker is receiving water. Check the water supply valve which is usually located either behind the refrigerator or under the kitchen sink. The knob should be turned all the way clockwise until it will no longer move.
  • 3 Move the freezer or refrigerator out from the wall and locate the water supply line. This line extends from the water supply valve that was previously located. Make sure there are no kinks or twists in the water supply line as this prevents the ice maker from getting water. Also check for leaks along the supply line which will also prevent the ice maker form working.
  • 4 Locate the manual shut off button for the freezer, if it has one. In some models, the shut off button is located inside the freezer door. If this is the case, simply check to make sure the button is switched to the "on" position. Shut off valves are only on some Kenmore refrigerator/freezer combination appliances.
  • 5 Measure the temperature in the freezer by placing a thermometer inside and allowing it to sit for approximately one hour. If the temperature is higher than 17 degrees F, then something is wrong with the main freezer and not the ice maker.
  • 6 Check the water inlet valve to ensure that is allows water to flow through freely. First turn off the water supply at the water supply valve, usually located under the sink or behind the appliance. Locate the water inlet valve by following the water supply line up to where it attaches to the refrigerator or freezer. Turn the plastic nut at the base of the supply line counterclockwise to detach the supply line. Pull the two or four wires of the water inlet valve off of the terminals. Inspect the wires for burn marks or corrosion. If these are present, it means they must be replaced as water is not being fed to the freezer.
  • good luck

    Ice Maker isn't making ice.


    Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
    Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
    If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
    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.

    Kitchenaid kscs25fjss01 (2002) front panel not working


    Hi

    If  The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

    The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

    First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.


    Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

    Thanks

    Ice maker will not work


    There's no ice If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order:

    • It 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. 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.


    • 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.


    Small or too few ice cubes If the ice maker is producing ice poorly--making small cubes or too few cubes--you probably have a clogged water line, a defective water-inlet valve, or a defective ice maker mold thermostat that isn't cycling properly. Check these:

    • The water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure you have good water flow. If the flow is poor, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water.


    • The water-inlet valve. Replace it if it has failed.


    • Check the freezer temperature. If should be 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.


    • The ice maker mold thermostat. Make sure that it's cycling properly.


    Specks in the cubes If you find black or gray specks in your ice cubes, have a look at the ice cube tray. If the protective coating is peeling away, the most economical solution is to completely replace the ice maker.
