If it is stuck or not working at all
If it is trying emptyu the ice bucket in to a bowl or something
Then put it back and using a cup pour hot water over the ice that is trying to be pushed out the will free the jam
Then using paper towel try to take out as much water from the ice tray
It should start working

If you are sure that power is getting to the ice maker unit inside the freezer and you're sure that water is available for the ice maker...
Try these next steps:

Follow the water line for the ice maker back to the ice maker water solenoid
Follow the wiring from the water valve to its source - either a timer or circuit board
Check the timer and/or circuit board for any bad connections, burned connections and power to the board or timer. This arrangement can vary by refrigerator model number...

SOURCE: ice maker is not making ice...no water to tray

there may be a sensor in the bin where the ice cubes drop into. It tells the ice maker when the bin is full so it stops making ice. Check to see if that sensor got bumped or moved or needs to be reset

GE Profile Model PSS26LGSC Ice maker not working


Did the ice buildup appear to resemble the water overfilling the top of the ice maker? The only thing that I believe that may work is removing the ice maker, clean the excess ice buildup.dry and reinstall the ice maker and see it works. If the ice is above the normal level the ice can cause the motor that pushes the ice out of its slots to strain more than the gears or motor can handle stripping the gear or damaging the motor beyond repair, When harvest takes place the first thing that happens is a heater below the ice maker warms the cubes a little just enough to allow them to slide out of their slots and fall into the ice bin. The ice make for your model does not have replaceable parts and if bad or damaged it is less expensive and time consuming to by a new ice maker. If the water fills above the top of the ice maker it is usually the fault of the water control valve not closing all the way once it fills the ice maker after each harvest. Did water refill the ice maker when you cleaned it? Did the water overfill after you cleaned out the ice maker? What I am asking is water over filling ice maker again after you cleaned out the excess ice? If the water continues to flow from the WR57X10032 Water Inlet Valve

I'm considering on purchasing anice cream maker.How does the ice cream maker run?


There are four main ways on how ice makers operate; 1.Manual Ice Cream Maker. If you have a way to keep the icecream frozen, you can make it anywhere - even outside on a picnic. It is nostalgic - this is how ice cream was made in the past. Results are less consistent and it invovles hard work. 2. Electric Ice cream Maker ; Motors might wear out because of work load on motor.Some models have safety features to prevent motorburn-out.

Ice maker is not working.


Ice maker has built in thermostat that turns cycle on at around 10 degrees F. If freezer temp does not reach that point the ice maker will not cycle. So either the freezer is not cold enough or the thermostat is faulty.

Make sure that the ice maker motor that turns the cams and controls the various stages is also working.

Ice maker dispencer motor won't spin. You can hear a click, and the ice dispenser light dims. The water dispenser works fine.


Best solution is to replace the ice maker. The ice makers are a cheap item and very hard to work on. It is easier to replace the ice maker rather than trying to take it a part and replaced the motor or gears. If you do want to take on the project you have to remove the ice maker and check the gears for a worn spot and the motor to see if it is still running. Parts can be purchased at a local appliance dealer. In tulsa we have Greers appliuances.

Ice maker repair and still no ice


  • The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser . The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, 
  • or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
  • Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. 
  • In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. 
  • Note: The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.
btw- you can replace the whole icemaker system for around  $115.00. 
  • charging you $250 for a $20 drive motor is ridiculous! my 12 year old son can change the drive motor in 15 minutes.
