    The icemaker has stopped making ice and the reset function no longer works.


    Hello;
    My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
    Your ice maker has a control board, which I suspect is bad. This happens.
    You did not provide a refrigerator model number which is located on a label on the inside liner wall of your fresh food section, so I do not know what you have.
    I have a friend who called Sears Home Services for his ice maker. Sears charge him $440.00.
    I have customer, same ice maker and problem. I charged him, $35.00 for the same ice maker and $30.00 to install.
    Depending on the ice maker you may be able to install it yourself.
    I need your refrigerator model number to help you.
    Peter

    Serial # k15004707 model # mf12665xew3 french doors ice maker in upper left corner. After the ice maker fills with water it drips off the front side.


    Refrigerator Leaking From Icemaker
    If it's leaking from inside the freezer then it's coming from the icemaker or the drain. Lets start with the icemaker. If it's the icemaker there will likely be an ice hanging from the icemaker or just a big block of ice in the ice bin. In any case, it will be obvious.
    There are a few reasons this will happen: one is the icemaker will stop turning when it gets to the fill cycle. This will happen when the gears in the icemaker break. On GE icemakers that were made before the year 2000, you can see the gears by taking off the cover on the front of the icemaker. However, if the small gear is broke you can't buy it as far as I know. I have been taking them off of junk icemakers for years. So this part may be hard to find. But if the big gear is broke replace it. Another reason icemakers leak is the fill tube is stopped up and I already discussed this earlier (replace water valve and clean out tube).
    Another reason icemakers leak is that the water comes in too fast so it over fills the first cube mold. When this happens you will get a few drops of water when it fills. To fix this you have to take the icemaker out and remove the piece on the side of the icemaker. I don't know the name of it so for this we'll call it cube separator because that's what it does (most of them just snap off others have a screws). Now take silicone (RTV) and put a small amount around the first cube mold only under the cube separator. Now reinstall the cube separator and wipe off excess silicone and it shouldn't leak anymore.
    Another reason that icemakers leak is that the refrigerator water valve sticks after the icemaker goes out of the fill cycle. When this happens the valve stays on and the icemaker keeps on turning, in which case, replace the refrigerator water valve.

    My ice maker has'nt made ice the whole day


    The arm on the icemaker can NOT be blocked. If anything is in the way it will stop and time out the icemaker. The face of teh icemaker is a timer, that arm lets the timer know it is ok to cycle through. Remove obstacles and then lift arm up and down to reset it. It's a thin silver bar on side of the ice maker.

    Leaking water in icemaker. water from icemaker leaks into freezer and freezes on freezer wall


    If you are sure that it's coming from the ice maker I believe that you possibly have a leaking water control valve on the side for the ice maker on the rear of refrigerator near floor there is a dual water valve control. Many times when this happens the water will freeze in the fill tube that fills the ice maker in the rear of freezer. You can defrost the frozen water in the fill tube with a hair dryer but that will not stop the problem from coming back. When that happens water tends to at times go everywhere but the ice maker. You can test the water control valve several ways. By unplugging the side to the ice maker and if water continues to flow slowly to the ice maker then the dual water control valve will need replaced, Sea Breeze

    Whirlpool Ice Maker Won't release ice


    Jetguy77,

    I have a 1993 year (16 years old now) Whirlpool side-by-side with icemaker, Model ED22PW. I have had similar problems with the icemaker - water goes in, freezes, but ice does not eject from tray. It has happened to this unit 2 times since 1993. It turns out the problem is not the thermostat. It is the icemaker motor module. The icemaker has a small synchronous (clock) motor that rotates the ice ejector. When it goes bad, the ejector does not rotate, either because the module timer had failed or the motor itself has failed. The solution is to go to your nearest applinace parts dealer and by a new "icemaker motor module" for Whirlpool Model (your model here). Mine cost $58.85 the last time I replaced it in 2006. To install the new module, you will need to remove the icemaker from the refrigerator. Mine has 3 screws that attach it to the side. Also unplug the power & control cable. The water tube slides out when you pull the unit forward. When you get it out, it is then easy to remove the motor module and insert the new one. You may have to reset the timer on the module to get the tray to fill completely.

    Subzero 500 series ice maker


    It sound's like you have a faulty icemaker. The icemaker has an internal timer that commands the inlet valve on at the correct time. If it does not stop the command, it will continue to fill. When you shut off the system, it kills power to the icemaker and that is why the solenoid goes off.
