Whirlpool bottom freezer ice maker will only make ice if I pull and then replace the ice container, why?


The ice maker works off a timer that controls the discharge of ice, water fill, etc. Right before the tray discharges ice it is heated slightly so the ice is just slippery enough to discharge the ice. Unfortunately, now and then (for us) a chunk of ice remains in the tray. This chunk prevents the blades from rotating and eventually you have a mass of new ice with the blades in the wrong position. The blades have to be in a certain position for the heater to kick in. You are stuck with cracking up the ice stuck in the tray to get the blades to rotate again. We have an Electrolux ice maker but this problem occurs periodically. The root of the problem is it's failure to heat up the ice tray adequately to discharge ALL the ice. One thing to remember is that next time this happens you have to manually break up the ice in the tray and push the timer advance button until the 2 set of blades are fully closed (hidden) and at 90 degrees. From that point on at least the ice maker can start making more ice.

Good day,
Unsnap front plastic cover. There should be a white plastic gear in the center. Inspect closely. If a tooth is stripped out, replace.
Simple repair. One screw. Machine must be unplugged to remove. When re-installing there is a front and a back. Make sure the tongs on the gear are faced away from you.
The ice maker should be removed, and the ice dumped out while performing the repair to take the stress off the new gear.

If the above is not true, you will have to replace the icemaker.

Ice maker makes ice but will not rotate and dump the ice.


You have a thermostatically controlled heat release ice maker. Any number of issues can cause a failure to "dump" the ice. The harvest is started when the thermostat closes. A motor rotates the ejector fingers which are at rest in the 2 o'clock position. The ice maker operation will stall until the heater releases the ice from the mold. After the cubes are ejected into the ice bucket, the water valve will refill the mold with water to begin the next cycle. Lack of ice dispensing could be a failed thermostat, heater, motor or switch contact withing the ice maker module. You could simply replace the ice maker and save the expense of the service call.

GE side x side When ice maker switch is on, freezer warms up


It sounds like the ice maker is stuck in the harvest ( dump ) mode , in the area of mold heater activation . This area , heats up the ice mold to unfreeze the cubes , and keeps rotating to dump the cubes . This heater , gets hot enough to actually burn you if you touch the mold .
I would remove the 2 screws holding the ice maker , unplug from the ice maker receptical , and replace the ice maker .

Either your freezer is not cold enough or you got a defective ice maker. It needs to be 15 degrees or colder to make ice. The water may be frooze but not cold enough to close the internal thermostat inside the ice maker. If your freezer is colder that 15 degrees, take the ice maker back to Sears, you got a lemon. Good luck!, Mack
