SOURCE: Ice Maker

Likely that the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.

Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.

Try replacing the filters, they might be slowing the water flow.

Does it make Ice OK?
If so the ice-water valve may be at fault if neither work.
Eliminate water filter or frozen line to reservoir.
Make sure you have water to water valve
Shut off water, remove line, open water line. Catch water in container and examine. Clean on particles let it flush out some more open and close til clean. Verify pressure and flow.
Still no water?
Check voltage with a volt meter at the fill valve behind the refrigerator.
Attach volt meter to the coil wire plug just insert probes into them. Then push the button on the door like your getting water. No volts? If has Ice maker pull off the other set of wires on water valve and recheck with door switch. Still no power? Problem in the ice - water door relay or control board.
If these check OK water valve is not opening when power applied replace water valve. Power shows good replace water valve.

Too many items to mention here.
I recommend if your problem is actually the ice maker itself get a new or rebuilt one. Too many things to detail to make sure it all works out in the end. However you might replace it and still have a problem. So here is a list of items to check external of the ice maker to eliminate what might be something else.

First lets see if we can eliminate some things:
Itemized as Temperature, Water, Water delivery… It is assumed the refrigerator has been running and not making ice and has remained on (NOT UNPLUGGED AND OFF) freezing as normal before starting any of these tests and observations. Other wise you will have to start over with the problem at hand before proceeding.

External of the ice maker:
1st Does the Freezer temp get down to 12'F? . The temp of the freezer has to be this cold or colder for the ice maker to work. Just because meat stays frozen (28’F and colder) doesn't mean it will freeze ice (12’F and colder) and dump it out. You have to know and record your findings to be objective and not subjective.

If not your problem may not be the ice maker at all. Eliminate it as a source of heat in the freezer. It’s plugged into the wall of the freezer and has a heater that warms the ice up to turn it loose for “harvest”. Unplug or remove it. Recheck the temp after ½ to 1 hour with the doors closed during this time. If its still not to temp your ice maker may be ok.
A lot of things can cause the temp of the freezer to stay high. But if this is the situation you need to look for a different problem before condemning and buying an Ice maker replacement

2nd Does it get water into the ice maker? If the water isn't getting to it you need to check the water delivery system, water supply, and water valve in the back.
The water delivery is easiest to check by shutting off the water removing the supply line and catching the water in a container with the valve open 1 to 2 rounds to flush out any particles and verify good flow and pressure, and makes sure when you turn it on you have clean water..
After you have eliminated this;
Next if your not getting water to the delivery tube and into the ice maker
1 of 2 things is stopping the water. Either its: 1 mechanical or 2 electrical in nature.
Mechanical
The easiest to look at is the obvious first. The water is not falling off the delivery tube? Look inside the freezer. Make sure the opening of the water delivery tube in back or side of the freezer is open and does not have ice or frost on it. Ice, here, can freeze and close off the delivery system. A common problem is lime or scale buildup, causing this ice to form. If the tube has this problem, defrost it with a hair dryer. Clean the tube with lime away or CLR. Re try it.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Gallery Professional Series -

you will need to replace the water inlet valve, this runs your water and ice,, before you replace it take your water line off and hold it in a pot, then have someone turn the water back on , this will let you know for sure you are getting water to the valve,, if no water comes out then you have a water line prob,, have that fixed then hook it back up and turn it on, then you will need to run the water for about 2 -3 minutes to purge the air out of the line,,, if you rplace the valve you will need to purge also

My ice maker stopped working


Test the ice maker cycle button on the bottom of the ice maker, if it cycles and fills, replace the ice maker because that is bad. If it cycles and doesn't fill, you could have a few waterline related issues. Check the water pressure out of the dispenser. If it's very slow Unplug the unit for 24 hours, increase the water pressure to the unit , get all of the moisture out and see if it fills after you plug it back in. I bet it's the ice maker though.

The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn't take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Hi,
The theory to making ice is temperature, water, and ice mold to function. What are the temperatures inside the freezer currently. It must be below 15 degrees to function and prefer the freezer to be at 0 degrees to product effectively. Are you ice cubes solid or hollow? If hollow you can jam the ice inside the ice maker causing slow production. Rare to have a water valve problem this young be is possible. I would look at temperatures first than cycle time to determine the next step. In a perfect world, your unit should drop ice every hour to and hour and a half.
Good Luck

Does the LGLFC20760ST refrigerator come with water/ice dispenser on the door?


Hi and Welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
This refrigerator does not have in-door ice feature. It also does not have a water filtration system. You should install an external water filter on your ice maker water supply line if you purchase this unit.
Unit details can be found here:
http://www.lg.com/us/appliances/refrigerators/LG-french-3-door-refrigerator-LFC20760ST.jsp

Make sure to click on the drop down menus lower on the page for EACH section using the specifications tab.

Also if you choose the Gallery tab you will see there is not an in door ice feature.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Water leak


IF THE ICE MAKER AND DISPENSER ARE BOTH OFF, THE WATER VALVE IS THE PROBLEM. THERE SHOULD ONLY BE WATER RUNNING WHEN THE ICE MAKER CALLS FOR IT, AND THAT SHOULD ONLY BE ABOUT 7 SECONDS WORTH,
(4 OUNCES).
THE ONLY THING THAT PUZZLES ME ABOUT YOUR DESCRIPTION IS THAT YOU SAY ICE FREEZES OVER THE COMPRESSOR. THE COMPRESSOR IS THE HOT ROUND OBJECT LOCATED UNDER THE REFRIGERATOR OUTSIDE THE COOLING COMPARTMNTS. FREEZING ONLY TAKES PLACE IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT. ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THE EVAPORATOR COILS? IF THERE IS WATER THERE, THE ICE MAKER COULD BE STUCK IN THE FILL MODE AND THE BACK OF THE ICE MAKER FROZEN SO THE WATER CAN'T REACH THE MOLD OF THE ICE MAKER.
CHECK THE FRONT OF THE ICE MAKER BEHIND THE COVER FOR A BROKEN GEAR. IF IT HAS WRITING ON IT THAT SAYS DO NOT ROTATE MANUALLY, YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE MODULE ON THE FRONT OF THE ICE MAKER.
