The cycle is not stuck. If the unit is still running (freezing) then the thermostat is set too cold or it could be a defected t-stat. First try to set the control counter clockwise to the warmest setting. If its a BI 98 Then the rule is the warmer the control the more ice it makes. Try that and let me know.

My BI98 u-line ice machine won't stop making ice even with bin arm up.


I would suspect the switch controlled by the tray full sensing arm/bail. That's kind of like the main power switch for the ice maker. You can remove the outer cover from the ice maker with the power unplugged! Then look at the mechanical operation of that lever as it relates to the switch. The lever should cause the switch to open and shut off the timer motor. Some times you can buy the timer separately otherwise you replace the whole icemaker. Don't forget to remove power and turn off the water before you remove the old icemaker.

My Emerson ice maker, will make the 1st round of 9 ice cubes, then it fills back up with water and makes a clicking noise and won't freeze anymore cubes I'm so sad, I don't have money to buy a...


If it won't freeze the cubes that because the freezer section is not cold enough to freeze them. the ice maker itself dose not have any cooling in it. it all comes from the freezer. sounds to me like there may be a problem with the ice maker and it may need to be replaced.

The ice maker


see this causes and fix it. God bless you

Makes to much ice or won't shut off.

Check shutoff arm. This may be hung up on ice or food item.

Makes no ice.

Check shutoff arm. Check to make sure it is getting water, check water solenoid. Check water supply line it may be frozen or plugged up. Check freezer temperature to low of a temperature could cause the line to freeze up. Check for power at motor. You will need to remove the ice maker. Find the leads that go to the auger and connect a voltmeter. Press the dispenser lever you should have power if not replace the control board or micro switch. Check control switch or microswitch. Put icemaker in test mode. Only some are equipped.

Ice cubes to large or small.

Adjust size by removing cover and turn adjustment screw + or -. Check water solenoid. Check water supply line. Make sure it is level.

Ice tastes bad

Clean ice tray. Check supply line. Check water solenoid. Change filter. Run at least a 3 gallons of water thru the line after replacing filter this will flush all old water.

Ice is discolored.

Most ice maker problems require either replacing the ice maker unit or the ice dispenser control board or micro switches.

Icemaker makes shells. Outside is frozen but


Hollow cubes are caused by not having enough water in the ice mold. Fill it up manually by pouring water in it and see how the cubes turn out.
look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. + is more water.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

There is a screen filter before the water inlet valve in the water line. It can get partially stopped up with sediment blocking water flow.

I have an old U-line ice maker. I can not find


The mechanical parts of those models is the same as a BI 95 or BI98. If your looking for the faceplate that would be part number 150. This includes the timer motor,gears,water switch, and hold switch. You can order this thru a parts distributor. Appliance Parts Depot or All Brand Parts should be able to help. If you want to replace the complete icemaker assemly that part number is 402

Kenmore frig ice machine doesn't make cube ice


Normally, the ice "cubes" are crescent shaped. The most likely cause for "crushed" ice is that the ice maker isn't getting enough water on its refill cycle after ejecting the tray. Becuase there isn't enough water, the ice looks crushed...it's actually shattered.

Check the water inlet and chute to the ice maker. Sometimes they freeze and have to be manually defrosted. A hair dryer will do the trick. Also check the water chute and be sure it isn't partially frozen.

Start there...if no luck you could also have a failing water filter or sticky water solenoid valve.

Ice maker freezing up


The problem is in the water valve.
The water supply line going to the Ref is connected to a water valve. This valve is not shutting off completely which causes water to drip into the ice maker. This dripping will freeze and eventually completely block the fill tube in the freezer.
