Question about Dometic Portable Ice Maker HZB-15S

1 Answer

Add water light is on and the water is full

The ice maker will not make ice because the add water light is on. It is full of water, so obviously it isn't sensing that water is in the water tub. It was working fine today, and then all of a sudden it stopped working when the add water light stayed on.

Why is there a flashing green light on the icemaker?


First, pull out the ice bin and eyeball the ice maker device behind it. See if the switch is turned on and the green light is lit. If it's blinking, that indicates "ice stuck in tray" and you'll have to take it out and thaw the whole contraption out. It's not that hard: unplug the giant molex connector on the right side and use a small hex wrench to unscrew the obvious screw holding it to the left side of the freezer wall. Then you can firmly pull the device up and out until it pops free from the notches where it sits in the back.
If there's ice stuck in the device, or if it's just not filling properly, let it sit out for a few hours until it warms up. Depending on the humidity conditions in your freezer, something could have frosted over.Check the swing arm on the bottom of the device. Despite the appearance as a bit of useless plastic, it has a magnet attached to an arm inside the main ice maker housing which allows the maker to tell if the arm is extended or pushed part ways in. Ice being make and pushed into the bucket depresses the swing arm when it falls and the arm returns to the extended position via a small spring mounted between it and the unit unless the ice maker is full. This spring has a habit of popping out of a tiny hole and not providing the force needed for the arm to return to "make more ice" position. Check that it pushes back at you if you depress it.
Hopefully one of these items you've checked wasn't working because they're all easy fixes. Reassemble and add it back to the freezer, making sure that the water dispenser in the back of the freezer leads INTO the ice maker, not BELOW it. This would cause a mess. Make sure the thing is plugged in again, and the green light is back on.
If you're impatient about waiting for another ice cycle to start, depress the swing arm three times in a row. This should tell the ice maker to immediately dispense water and start a new cycle.

Icemaker


check your water level probe make sure it is clean they will build up dirt and not seance water level which makes machine think it is low on water and this will not let refrigeration come on. if not dirty then replace water level probe.

I have a 10 year old, at least Kenmore ice maker overflowing into the ice chest. No obvious adjuster.


Can you locate the Kenmore Model Number? It will look like this=> 321.654987 What I think is the dual water control valve is leaking once it turns off. Here below is a ice a ice maker repair clip on You-Tube where he shows a slug of ice filling the ice maker fill tube. In most cases replacing the water control valve will stop the continued water flow to the ice maker once the ice maker fills. I will be here to answer any questions you have Thanks Sea Breeze

My Ic13b icemaker but when ice tray is full it still adds water to icemaker causing it to overflow and freeze on bottom of freezer


either your ice maker is calling for too much water or the water valve isn't shutting off when the ice maker tells it too. The best thing to do is to change both the ice maker and the valve because if one is defective more than likely thee other will fail shortly

Add water light stays on when the reservoir is full


I have the SPT IM-100 Portable Ice Maker. After about 2 months, it stopped, telling me that it needed water, when of course it was full of water. I did alot of digging on the Internet to find a solution. There was none. It finally occurred to me that the water sensor might be calcified with our hard water here in Reno. BINGO!!!! I ran several cycles with lemon juice and vinegar (you pick your favorite non-toxic acid), and the damned thing started up again as if brand new.

Neff K3990 American style fridge ice maker is not producing ice


The ice maker unit give the command to the water valve to relese water for a short time.
you cna check with volt meter on the water volve that got the pip go to the ice maker unit if it getting 120V for short time when the fingers of the ice maker making full round.
if you get 120v the problem is the valve (the ice maker and the water have difrent water path so its difrent valve used) if you dont get 120v or the fingers of the ice maker not turning then its your ice maker unit need to be replace.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I have a 13 year old refrigerator with an icemaker. I installed a water line to get water to the fridge. The hose is connected to the water main and the fridge. I am not getting any ice.


Obviously, your ice maker problem could be any number of things... Now that you have water to the ice maker, is the inlet valve opening to allow water to get to the ice maker itself? If it is, is the line that runs between the inlet valve free to allow water to get to the ice maker? if it is, is the ice maker cycling ( meaning the motor rotates the drive mechanism that times the cycle of opening the valve, rotating the mold tray then releasing the ice with a small mold release heater? An ice maker that's ~ 13 years old probably has a removable front cover so that you can see the drive gears.. Also, is the lever that senses the ice cube bin is over full in a position ( normally down) that allows th eice cube maker to cycle? Hopefully, these simple checks will help you trouble shoot the problem and get your icemaker functioning again. Hope this helps !

Ice Maker water keeps running


Bad I/M, won't shut off after harvest and continues to restart cycle. Heater in I/M should warm up thermostat after first harvest and stop unit from recycling.
