Here is the=> SD0302A Technical Service Manual. Search this manual for Sequence of Operation From there you need to watch and listen to these events to see why the water trough is filling only one time. I am here if you have questions, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

Check the power conection to the ice maker. If that's ok, then I would think the solenoid that controls the water flow has gone bad. Unfortunately, you will likely have to replace the whole ice maker, I don't think they are reparable.

check the fill tube at the back of the freezer for ice build up. (top if it is an ice in door model) if it is plugged use hair drier to defrost. if not iced up run the ice maker and listen carefully for the water valve to come on. if you dont hear it check the voltage to it with a meter or check the contnuity of the valve. good luck

First, are you getting water at the door? If not, the filter is installed wrong or there is some packing on the filter you didn't remove.

SOURCE: ice maker won't work

Several issues can occur with this icemaker, the most common one being the shut off arm (the wire arm on the right hand side of the ice maker) is lifted into the off position.

Or, there has been

1) Mold thermostat failure
2) Mold heater failure
3) Motor failure
4) Fill switch failure
5) Water fill valve failure

SOURCE: Ice maker not working

I recently had trouble with both my water dispenser and my ice maker. I determined that my filter was clogged, so I replaced it. That fixed the water dispenser but the ice maker still wasn't working. I investigated further and found that the water inlet tube was frozen solid. Aparently, when the filter was clogged the water came in so slowly that it froze before it got to the icetray. I tried pouring hot water over the inlet tube to melt it and it mostly worked, but there was still some ice in the tube further back where I couldn't reach. Finally I defrosted the freezer so all the ice could melt and turned it back on and now it works great! Hope this might help.

Manitowoc ice maker does not produce ice

If it doesn't run at all open the front panel and peer inside of the control box. See if there are any indicator lights on the control board lit or blinking. Check the plastic water curtain on the machine and make sure that the magnet is in place on the bottom right. Will need more information as to what lights are lit. Printed on the board next to each light is its corresponding function or response.

I have a manitowoc QY0424A ice maker and the water runs over the catch basin but it still makes ice. It doesn't run over all the time but most of the time.

Turn back the pressure on the water going into your home and or if there is an adjuster on the back of the fridge set it for 1/2 less.
