We need to check the defrost timer first. It's located inside the fresh food compartment and inside the control panel. There should be a small opening through the panel that you can place a flathead screwdriver. Turn slowly clockwise until the refrigerator compressor stops. Leave it alone for about 30 minutes. If it does not restart then the timer is bad and will need replaced. If not then we need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the rear panel inside the freezer and inspect the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. Let me know when you need more assistance, Thanks Sea Breeze

Timer part number may depend on if the model is correct listed above your post. Part # 68233-3

    I am curious, did you choose to set the freezer to 7? Has this always been your choice for the freezer area? Most refrigerators set both settings to 5. I just want to see if I understand your question correctly. Sea Breeze

Ice made but will not dump.


Hello, There is a heater in the bottom of the tray where the ice cubes are formed. The heater melts the bottom of the ice cubes just enough to release the ice cubes from the mold. I suspect your mold heater is not working.

Sometimes ice melts in ice maker. Water drips down and refreezes.


There is a heater built into the ice maker bottom to help release ice cubes from the machine. Under normal conditions the heater only come on when the ice maker starts to run and then jambs against the frozen cubes. When it stalls and jambs against the frozen ice cubes, the heater comes on to melt the cubes enough. I think you have a defective ice maker and the heater is coming on to much or at the wrong time, Since your temps go back to normal with the ice maker turned off, I am almost sure thats your problem.

Jenn-Air bottom freezer ice maker not working


I took the arm of the ice-making machine out of the slot and put it back in, pushing it snugly inside the slot, then raised and lowered it several times. Then, with the arm in the up (stop making ice) position, I felt inside the ice-making tray, where I noted there were ice cubes as well as a sheet of ice at the base of the ice-making tray. I poured approximately 24 oz. of hot tap water into the tray to melt the sheet of ice. I turned the freezer temp control to "warmer". I think the freezer temp setting was too cold, causing the ice maker to freeze the water before it could make cubes. I have a working ice maker again!

Ice cubes made by ice maker become large fused chunks over time.


Ice cubes will deteriorate over time if not used. They shrink due to defrosting of the freezer and will become stale.
Once the ice bin is full, turn the ice maker off until you use the cubes and or dump the cubes every 3 or 4 days and start over.

Ice Maker Freezing Up and Ice not dispensing


Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck
