Ice maker not working

Ice maker stopped making ice, so installed new water filter because it was time and was told that sometimes the ice maker will not make ice if the water filter needs to be replaced. Ice maker still doesn't work after new water filter installed. We have emptied the fridge & freezer and left it off for 24 hours and ice maker still would not work, green light flashes. We took out the ice tray and the tray that the water runs down and rinsed both of those with warm water because they both had ice build up. After we put everything back together, ice maker light was not flashing, but we still don't have ice. Would really appreciate any suggestions. Same problem, ice maker doesn't work.

If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order:

  • It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these:

    • If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire.

    • If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire.

    In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

  • The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary.

  • The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

SOURCE: Whirlpool GD5RHAXNQ00 Ice maker not making ice

We had a similar problem and there was a broken/stripped gear in the icemaker. A&E replaced it to the tune of $150 or so. I don't recall exactly but I recall my husband thinking he could replace the entire icemaker for the price we paid to repair it. The gear make the ice tray flip out the ice once frozen. Good luck, hope that helps a little.

Ice machine won't make ice! kenmore 363.9537883 bought whirlpool filter 4378411RB water comes out of door but pressure isnt good. Told me i needed a new filter. Is this the problem or something else?


The filter is for water AND the ice maker. The ice maker expects a certain amount of water to flow into it during the fill time. If no water flows at all into the ice maker, then suspect the clock mechanism of the ice maker.

PFSF5RKZC Icemaker stopped making ice.


Most of the time is the ice maker itself that is defective. inside ice maker is an small circuit board that freezes up, if you take ice maker out and leave it overnight out to melt any ice inside the board it may work after that.

Not making ice after changing filter.


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

A new filter can take several cycles of the ice maker to fill the filter up with water before. The average filter is around 30 oz and the average ice maker fill cycle is 3.2 oz. The new filter did not have any water in it. The water in the door has a resercoir so the air in the filter will still make the water work until you get air. Drain abour 3 tall glasses from the water in door. The ice maker should then work properly. The filter filters water for water in door (inside) and the ice maker so if you have water inside the door you should have ice UNLESS one of the inlet water valve solenoids has failed. Also make sure the Freezer door / light switch functions properly. The door switch is supposed to stop water and ice functions with the door open.

I would like to know if it starts making ice.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Ice maker stopped working


The water line may be clogged with debris. there is sometimes a filter in the water line to the fridge, or also a screen filter may be located at the point where the water line connects to the fridge. If they are clogged, your ice maker will not make ice and may even burn out.
Check that the water in the line is flowing freely. Also it might be a good idea to defrost the freezer in case you have a ice buildup in the freezer compartment. To do that, empty the freezer and blow air into the freezer for 30 minutes while the power if off. Note, keep the other side closed to protect the milk and other perishables.

Whirlpool ED25RF Does ice maker have a filter? My ice taste funny and sometimes its dirty


The ice maker doesn't have a filter , the problem could be the ice maker itself that the tray ,which is made out of aluminum is losing particles.Look at the conditions of the ice maker tray ,if you see like white spots replace the ice maker.

GE side by side refrigerator: water/ice dispensor


I bought a brand new smartwater replacement filter and after a very short time, my water stopped coming through the door.. took out the new replacement filter and inserted a brand new one .. problem solved.. apparently some of the g.e. smartwater filter replacement cartridges don't have the high enough two plastic inserts which are attached to them at the top of the filter when you screw them on... if you have taken your cartridge in and out a few times, i think it wears down the plastic so it doesn't fit properly and won't put up whatever it is supposed to push up to make the water come through.. I personally think this is a g.e. problem with the replacement filters...
