Check that the water isn't over filling the ice mould or that water isn't escapeing down the back of the draw due to an allignment issue with the filler tube. worst case could possibly be a cracked ice mould.

Liebherr ice maker not making ice. Switched on but nothing happening


Hello Irene Booth,
There are several things you can do to check the suitability of your freezer settings ... (eg: if you put a small container of water in the freezer...
Is it mostly frozen in about 45 minutes??

Things that would aid in trouble shooting...

Liebherr nomenclature: model number...???
New... or new to you?

Had previously worked... Never worked.

General observations... Frost forming in back of freezer area
Doors square and fitting properly...
Gasket in full contact (visibly) all the way around the freezer door/drawer... and is in good condition
- (can physically check by pulling a dollar around the gasket).

If the Ice Maker has EVER worked ... We can skip the basics of checking the water supply is hooked up and TURNED ON.

If you can fit your fingers in the ice tray to feel for water or ice in
the tray ... that would also be helpful.

Finally... for new models... check that all packing tape & materials around the ice-maker have been remove.

Although your model appears to be a TWIST TRAY type of ice-maker... there is still a sweep or fill bar that is supposed to check the fill level of your ice bin.

A single chip of ice can hold that from moving freely... your ice maker will not work ... !!

Hope this helps

Sub Zero 700 TC with two freezer drawers on bottom. Ice sheet is forming on the bottom below the drawers and causing the drawer to stick. I have defrosted the freezer with a hair dryer and thought this...


Hi,

How are the ice cubes? Are they normal size or hollow? I was wondering if some of the water was not making it into the ice maker and causing this issue. Is there any frosting issue not mentioned? Any water droplets on or around the back wall of the unit (inside)? I am a service tech certified and would like to know more about this issue. Have you cleared the drain completely, meaning after you de-iced unit, did you use water to verify the drain was cleared?

I you like to know more, so I can direct you in solving this issue.

The defrosting heating element may have burnt out. Also if the gasket around the door/drawer isn't sealing correctly moisture from the air leaking in could be condensing inside and then freezing causing the build up.

Well, that wire is likely the cause of your issue, somebody probably bent it, and now it gets caught on the door or a basket or a food item or what have you, and since it cannot move, the ice maker will not make ice.

MODEL # 59673504203 DRAWER IS ALWAYS FREEZING EVERYTHING IN IT. NOW NO ICE IS BEING PRODUCED


I had the same problem. I pulled the drawer all the way out. In the back is a vent flap. Ice had formed on it keeping it open. I chipped off the ice so the flap can move. This stopped the freezing veggies.
My ice maker stopped working. It was suggested I change the water filter as it may be clogged preventing water moving to the ice maker. As I am getting a new refrigerator I all not be buying a new filter.
This message is little late for the original poster but may help someone else.

Check and make sure that the flap that lets the ice out is shutting properly. When warm air enters the freezer door, it condensates then water freezes forming your ice. If this is your problem, they make a kit that replaces it. Good luck...

Why is water forming under the veggie drawers


One of two things caused this problem, either the drain in the freezer is clogged and spilling over to the air duct and through to the refrigerator, down the back wall and then puddling up under the drawers or the Styrofoam between the freezer and refrigerator is saturated with water. If you remove the inner back wall of the freezer and there is ice built up, defrost it with hot water and a turkey baster, push some heavy weed trimmer line down the drain tube and they should clear the clog. If there is no ice build up, then you probably have the latter of the two problems, the only solution is to empty the unit, turn it off, and let it dry out for a few days with the doors opened. If the problem continues, then there is a significant breakdown of the Styrofoam between the two cavities and there isn't a solution, it is time to purchase a new unit.

Kenmore elite bottom freezer. Frost, Ice tray


The adjusta cube ice maker has an on/off switch. To stop the ice from overfilling and being knocked off when you open the freezer door turn the ice maker off and then back on as needed.
