SOURCE: ice maker not working

Hello.

First of all you need make sure that your freezer is freezing enough. Sometimes everything will seem to be freezing ok, but it won’t be cold enough to make the icemaker work. The best way is to squeeze your ice cream, if you have any that is.

Then you need to make sure that the ice level sensing arm is in the down/on position.
Also make sure that the ice bucket is positioned properly so as to trigger the ice bucket sensing switch.

If all of this checks out ok, let me know and I can guide you through an icemaker diagnosis by forcing it into a harvest mode.

If you have a silver metal braided line to water source that is your problem. Replace mine with a braided vinyl line and it cured it. ps flush new line for about two minutes.

The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .
Get freezer and ref thermometer. Ref is probably too cold.
Freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees. Ref 33 to 35

Have replaced the 3part inlet water valve for our fridge freezer. Water is working fine,but still not making ice.


Check the ice bin level arm (also the ice maker on/off switch) is in the down position. It senses when the ice bin is full and turns off the ice maker until some ice in the bin gets used. It can also be lifted into the up position to turn the ice maker off.

Westinghouse ice maker quit working


Is it your ice maker, or possible the blades that crush the ice or dispense the cubes? What can happen in the latter case is that during the storm the ice melted and pooled in the cutter mechanism. Then, when power was restored, the blades were frozen solid. To fix, investigate taking out the cutter mechanism and letting it thaw and drain. Then reinstall and use frequently for the first few days to prevent refereezimg.

I have a Westinghouse side by side refridgerater with water and ice dispenser. The other day I arrived home to find water pouring through the back of the freezer section into the ice maker,and into ice...


Your water control has two sides. One side is for the ice maker and other is the water disapenser. If the ice maker valve becomes mechanically defective the water valve can allow water to continue to flow or not flow at all. Replace the water control valve and I believe this will solve this porblem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice maker wont make ice


Is water getting into the ice tray of maker? If not check for the water solenoid's proper operation. Is freezer temp at least 10 degrees or less? If not, the ice maker will not work. If ice in tray then perhaps the heater element is not working to melt it a tad ans allow the fingers to pudh the ice out and into the tray.

You can get those suckers for about 40 bucks new on ebay eBayeBay

Ice maker soliniod is not operating long enough to fill entire ice tray! is there a time adjustment?


Their is a lever on the ice maker. Look close at the main drive gear. Sometimes they chip a tooth and ice production suffers.

Ice maker not working, no water or ice dispensed.


Cause found to be faulty ice/water control board which is located at the back left hand side of the condensor behind the water solinoid valves.This is the single most expensive part of the ice maker!

Marine ice maker problem


Mine has been doing this for years. You can check if the door gasket is good and sealing well. If not you can oder one and easily replace it yourself. Also, if I did not run my generator when I took a short ride ice inside would start to melt while the unit is off, usually around the case perimeter which would drip down to the bottom under the bucket and then when it was put back on it would refreeze under the bucket like a block and make it impossible to remove. I would sometimes just turn it off, put the ice in a ziplock in my frezzer to save it, let it defrost to get the bucket out and dry up the standing water.
