SOURCE: LG wont dispence ice

hi there,

sounds like you have ice in the ice bucket. it's most likely that the ice paddle is jammed or broken. check around the ice door and paddle for anything visibly broken as well. you may have to replace the ice paddle.

SOURCE: Ice maker not dumping ice

Hello,
My lady friend has the same problem with her ice maker. The problem is, the ice tray is broken on the end. I took her ice maker out and found out it was broken. Its going to be hard finding a replacement since they don't make parts anymore.

Good Luck !!!

SOURCE: icemaker will not dump ice into bucket

Hello.
Unfortunately your icemaker is showing classic signs of failure and it is time to replace it. You will need to go to www.sears.com and go the the parts tab. You will need the actual number off of the refrigerator tag. It usually has three numbers, a period and then 6 to 9 more numbers. Once there you will be able to locate and purchase the icemaker you need. It is a simple replacement and will work like a champ when you are done.

Fghb2844lf1 ice machine is not work


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the ice maker in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FGHB2844LF1, is not producing ice. I suggest turning your ice maker off and taking out the ice tray and dumping any ice that is in the tray. Wait 3-4 hours. Dry the tray out and put it back into position. Turn the ice maker back on. It will take anywhere from 2-3 hours for ice to produce. If your refrigerator is still not producing ice, please feel free to reconnect. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I have an LG french door bottom freezer refrigerator. Water is coming out of the back freezer vents and then pooling and freezing on the freezer floor. If we don't remove it periodically it leaks onto the...


This has nothing to do with the ice maker. The defrost drain has frozen over. Inside the freezer you will see that the whole back is a panel. Unplug the unit and gently pry at the top of this panel. It will come forward and then you can lift it out. unplug the fans and take the panel out. You will see the coils. and underneath the coils, the drain pan. Mine was completely filled with ice. I used a hair dryer to melt it and remove the large chunks. Be gentle. Use a turkey baster to remove excess water. Then pour some very hot water in to clear the drain itself.

Its not producing ice anymore.


As long as the ice trays are filling with water, it's not actually the function of the ice maker to make ice. Ice simply forms because the freezer compartment is cold.

The icemaker's function is to sense when ice is formed in the trays and to dump the ice into its container.

This requires the use of a thermostat to sense the water/ice temperture and 'tell' the icemaker when it's time to dump the ice.

During the dump cycle, a heater briefly comes on as the arm swings through the ice cube compartments to assist in loosening the ice cubes and make them easy to dump.

If the icemaker is filling with water but you get no ice, I suspect that either the control circuit (thermostat, relays, and wiring) is not 'telling' the heater to come on, or the heater is burned out.

Some units also have a timer circuit such that both the timer contacts and the thermostat contacts must be close in order to initiate a dump cycle (i.e., it must be time to dump and the water in the cubicles must be frozen).

A skilled homeowner could make these repairs, but if you don't feel comfortable taking your icemaker apart and testing the components, I advise leaving the job to a qualified repairman.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

Frigidaire not dumping the ice


Hi: Dumping the ice is the start of the ice making timer. Before you replace the ice maker... Set the freezer one setting colder. The ice maker wont make ice if the freezer is not at zero degrees F. Just because things are frozen in it dosn't mean it is at zero. This happens a lot in the summertime. After resetting the temp don't open the door every hour to see if it makes ice as you will just dump the cold air out. Listen for the ice to dump, give it 24hrs. I hope this helps, Jeff
