Jenn Air Ice Maker Ejector Fingers Freeze Up

I have had this problem from Day One on my Jenn Air side-by-side refridgerator (model JCD2389DES) and it's driving me crazy. The plastic, rotating fingers that sweep the cubes from the tray get a build-up of ice. This ice build-up prevents the fingers from passing through the comb-like feature that exists above the cube tray. The cubes never get ejected into the bin.

I can physically remove the ice from the paddles/fingers, but after one or two cycles, the problem returns. It's become a habit now to reach into the freezer every time I walk past the fridge to flick off the ice.

Jenn Air has been zero help.

Could it be related to the fact that I feed the ice maker with water from my reverse-osmosis system? It's much lower pressure and flow than the tap water.

Hello, Yes you may be on the right track. Some manufactures like Jenn-Air, Viking, Sub-Zero, etc. require a higher inlet water pressure across the inlet solenoid valve to close the diaphragm after the ice machine stops calling for water. There are multiple solutions. But first, check the water pressure to your home to make sure you have 65-70 psi of pressure entering the home. Here is a link to our web site for a reasonably priced solution to increase the discharge working pressure from your RO System storage tank to the Jenn Air: http://www.puresafe.com/RO/html/eps-3tpp.html This is a modification that can be done to your system. It is a Patented Piston Actuated Permeate Pump that relieves the Permeate or Pure Water "BACK"-Pressure when the pure water enters the storage tank so the tank can store more water and build more working pressure. You could also increase the size of the storage tank, increase the size and daily production of the Membrane Filter to recover the tank water quicker, or add additional storage tanks for more volume of storage. Another method would be to use an "Atmospheric Storage Tank" with the RO System, and a Pressure Delivery Booster Pump to **** the water out of the storage tank and Pump it to the required location under higher pressure and flow when compared to the Conventional Pressurized Bladder Tank that you own now. The drill down path to our site for this information would be: www.puresafe.com, Purification, Reverse Osmosis, Residential, Pump Assisted Reverse Osmosis, EPS-3TPP, or other systems on that page. Hope this helped. Victor Kernes

SOURCE: Ice maker jammed. Ejector fingers in incorrect position.

The ice maker should make an attempt to get the fingers in the correct position on its own. If it doesn't then it probably is bad. I always that out the jammed ice cube with a hair dryer till the fingers move over to the harvest position. No need to remove the ice maker. Their is going to be a fouled ice cube on these newer ice makers from time to time.

Yes it could be either, BUT I would go back and make sure that everything you did to stop it the first time is undone. Is everything setted correctly? Is the switches in the right place?

Neither the solenoid or the microswitch could cause the problem you had before, so I would suspect something is not right with the ice maker itself.

Ice maker jammed. Ejector fingers in incorrect position.


Is the position off - or the icetray heater failed?
Just before ejection - there is a heater element that warms the ice for easy discharge.

Check that the heater is working.

Reply with the model # of the fridge for more exact help.

Thanks!!

Jenn-Air JCD2389GE side-by-side refrigerator ice maker. Numerous problems since purchased in 2002. The latest is flapper door opening and closing repeatedly at two second intervals and water pouring out...


Getting to the more serious water leak problem, it will be likely caused by one of two problems. the first, more common problem, is the solenoid for the icemaker valve is likely stuck open. sometimes particles in the water will literally prevent the solenoid from closing, like jamming a stone between a piston inside an engine cylinder, causing your water to overfill your icemaker, fill up the bucket, and pour through the flapping door that you also have problems with. the second possible problem, is your icemaker itself has stopped, or to be more precise, the motor has ceased up, and it happened to stop at the point in the icemaker cycle when it calls for water. You can check to see if the valve is the problem, by removing the icemaker entirely from the freezer, its held on by 3 screws, or possibly one screw and two metal or plastic clips, also unplug the icemaker from where it connects electrically. Assuming you have the water to fridge turned off presently, turn the water back on, and see if water comes through the fill tube. If it does, the valve is your problem, I suggest replacing both the primary and secondary valves. 12001892, 61005626 are the two part numbers.
If water is not coming out of the fill tube, take a look at your icemaker. Look at the icemaker as it was when mounted, and inspect the center ejector shaft, it runs down the middle top of the icemaker, and has 11 fingers on it, it is what rotates around to eject cubes. Is it in the "home" position, i .e. the position it sits while water freezes. The home position, when looking at the ice maker in its normal orientation, is when the ejector shaft teeth are pointing at 2:00. If the teeth are in any other position, either the ice maker was disconnected during its cycle, or the motor has stopped. To be certain, with the water remaining off, reconnect the ice maker, pour about 8 oz of water in the ice maker, if after 24 hours there is no ice ejected, then you have a bad ice maker. part # D7824706Q

In regards to your flapper door problem. since the path of water went through the door dispenser,its possible you may need to replace electric panel for dispenser. An inconvenient fix is to unplug the connection for the dispenser, located either at the top, under hinge cover, or at the bottom, after removing toe plate.

You could have a layer of solid ice at the bottom of your icetray which is binding everything up. Remove ice tray and any ice from the bottom. Reinstall and be careful of the connection on the back of the ice tray, you may have to turn it a little to get it to mesh correctly. refill and try. Good luck.
