If the ice ejector (the plastic part) is pointed down and not pointed between 10 and 3 o' clock the ice maker motor has failed or somethin is binding. Replacing the ice maker is probably the best bet.

Turn ice maker off for 24 hours to thaw out any additional frozen lines.
Make sure that you do have water from source to unit. Water valve grit screen may be clogged with debrie or water valve is bad.

only two things this could be, either your water valve is bad or your icemaker is bad. you can get a kit which comes with both for a little over a hundred bucks, and you can change them yourself.

Ice maker... its makes the ice but then doesn't dispense it the whole way.. its like it gets stuck sitting there and doesn't want to keep rotating, i have to lift or "reset" the wire ... its a model # M1


Good Afternoon Sean, thanks for your inquiry!
I understand that your icemaker is not dispensing ice and it gets stuck rotating. You have provided me with a model number of M1 and I was unable to locate any information on that icemaker. May I have the model number of your refrigerator? You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside wall of your refrigerator. With that information I can further assist you. -Matt

How to take out old ice actuator on Kenmore fridge


The easiest thing to do is remove the icemaker first. Ujnplug your fridge first, though. Take a 1/4" nut driver and remove the screw at the botton of the icemaker. Then loosen the 2 screws on the topside of the ice maker. You'll be able to see the back screw, but the front one is kinda hidden....you'll have to use your fingers for eyes on that one! Lift up on the icemaker and it should come free from the screws. Disconnect the electrical plug, being sure to release the little latch on the side of the molex plug.

Now you can work on the icemaker....there is a white plastic cover over the end of the icemaker, pull that off and you can start to see the guts of the icemaker. There are 3 phillips head screws holding the motor module on, and the rest of it can be torn down from there. Good luck!

My Kenmore refrigerators (model #79177990) ice


Ice inlet tube may be frozen up inside of Fridge. Thaw it out with a hair blower. Shut of water supply and disconnect the water line that goes into the back. Use a flexable item at the connection to see if will go all the way through to the icemaker. I used a zip tie.

If you still don't have water going to the icemaker, you may need to replace the "Water Inlet Valve" at bottom back right of your Fridge. Easy to Do.

Loud noise from JD-21 ice maker


Usually a stripped gear or a bad icemaker motor. Remove the icemaker front cover by using a flat screwdriver to pry it off between the bottom of the icemaker and the cover. Inspect the icemaker to see if the large white plastic gear has any broken teeth or is cracked in the middle. The motor is in the 10:00 position of the white gear. If the gear is ok, and the noise is coming from the motor, replace the motor.
After unplugging the refrigerator you can remove the motor assembly by removing three screws in the mounting plate, and then two screws holding the motor on. The parts house also sells the complete icemaker, however your refrigerator is already 29 years old if I am reading your model number correctly. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Side by side Whirlpool fridge with ice maker as well as ice and water dispenser in door. Dispenser works for both ice and water so water is getting to the system, but the ice maker has suddenly stopped...


If you have a whirlpool icemaker inside of your freezer (I've read on other posts that whirlpool ice makers are installed in various makes and models), there is a white cover over the ice maker (it's square). Remove the square cover with your hands or stick a flat head screwdriver in the side until you can pull it off.

Once the white square cover is removed, you should see a white wheel with gear teeth. In the middle of the white wheel is a plastic snap that should be holding it in. I noticed that one of the little plastic snaps was broken...which caused my "no ice" problem. A simple test is to push the white wheel toward the icemaker. If the wheel starts turning, you have found the problem. You see, behind the whhite wheel are metal contacts that need pressure for the ice maker to work. Without the center plastic snaps holding it it, the pressure is gone...and so is the metal to metal contact.

I previously called Whirlpool, searched all of the web...to no avail. Every other solution was "check for ice blocking the water tube" or "replace your water filter". That's all balony. If your regular water dispenser is working, you don't have an ice problem. And if your water dispenser is working, you don't have to change your fitler either.

If you realize that the little white wheel is the culprit, just google "whirlpool module" and you will see it for sale. I found one on ebay for under thirty buckaroos with free shipping.

Hope this helps.
