Ejector blades not in proper place

My ice maker has stopped making ice- or very little. I cleaned the shoot out dried it up and checked the back line for water. All is OK ? The ice is slow in making and does not eject. the blades are at 4 o'clock. how do I rotate the ejector blades back to two o'clock? Can I test all the componenents of the ice makes -motor, valve, heater-thermostat with a volt meter? what are the values?

SOURCE: No water to the ice maker. No voltage to the inlet solenoid

icemakers work on a timed cycle and a timed fill. pressing the reset switch i would say solved your problem. I would switch the valves back to the way they were. The valve for the ice is smaller then the door water because the icemaker takes a small amount of water to fill. Good luck

SOURCE: Inoperative Ice Maker

Our water has been working fine.

Our problem is that the feeler arm gets stuck in "up" position, therefore, it doesn't make ice even when the bucket is empty. Someone had suggested the arm may be freezing in place. That seemed to be an accurate diagnosis since every time we turned the ice machine off and gave it time to defrost, the arm would lower to the down position. Subsequently, when we turned the ice machine on, it would freeze in the up position. As I looked closely, I could see some water seeping through the box that houses the feeler arm. I could see where the water could be freezing the arm up.

I didn't have the time to deal with the issue for awhile--over a month (not too big of an issue during the winter months when we're not needing that many ice cubes!). Then just a couple of days ago, I decided to check into the problem again. The box that houses the feeler arm seemed to have dried out a bit since I didn't see any water. Just to be sure, I used a hot hair dryer on it for a few minutes (directing it into the cracks) to dry it out. So far so good! The feeler arm stayed down when we started up the machine and has made a full bucket of ice without freezing up. I hope it lasts.

This may not address the root of the problem: water getting into the feeler arm box.

Yes this is the cause. You can try pulling it down into position. If it will not move or if it moves but the icemaker still does not work then the entire icemaker will need replaced. Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

SOURCE: ice maker does not make ice. Water supply works,

Is there water filing the ice tray? Make sure the tray is engaged and the full lever (wire on mine) is not locked in the raised position cancelling the ice maker. There is the posibility of the timer motor being at faullt. Listen for it's functioning. If the ice bin has frozen water in it, the timing is off and the water is not filling the tray properly .

SOURCE: ice maker does not make much ice

Hi and welcome to FixYa. When an icemaker still makes ice but in a reduced capacity it is usually the result of other problems.

Either there is ice build up on the evaproator coils due a defrosting problem that you do not see or the evaporator fan motor is not running fast enough.

Here is a way to find out. Unplug the unit and use a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for at least 2 hours. This is a manual external defrosting that will rid the evaproator coils of any ice build up.

Plug the unit back in. Over the next 30 hours check to see if your ice made result is much more than before the manual defrost.

If this improves your ice made result then you probably have a defrosting problem with your unit.

You did not say if the cubes were smaller or not so I have to assume the cubes currently are normal in size and that water flow and ice maker fill timing are fine.

I believe you will need to unplug, remove and dry out your ice maker and carefully disassemble and try to get everything back to the home position without losing parts. It sounds like your ice maker stopped mid cycle when power failed.Then froze in place at present location. Ice makers have a series of about six stages once they begin cycling. A cam and relay switches guide it to the next step. Yes, you can fix it yourself and you will need to guide and get all parts to align to where you see it setting most times when you open freezer door. I call that home position and if empty in that position it calls for water for about 7.5 seconds. Tedious but I will try to assist you. Sea Breeze

Ice maker sotp making ice / red light blinking


J, As you open the freezer door the LED on the right should flash 2X with a pause repeatedly. When you hold the left side emmiter down the light should stay on steady. If you have this, you know the optics are good unless the ejector blades are not home. First thing to check is where the ejector blades on the ice maker are parked. They should be resting in the 2:00 position. If they are not, you could have a broken module. If they are in the 2:00 positon the next thing to check would be the fill tube. You want to make sure it is not frozen over. You can disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through the line or visually inspect it. If all of the above mentioned check out, jump start the ice-maker. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the right side. Remove the harness cover. Pull the ice-maker straight out but be carefull not to smash the emmitter flap on the left side. Leave the harness connected. Get a jumper wire with the ends stripped apout a 1/4 inch. Unplug the refer and place the jumper in test holes T&H. Leave the jumper in and place the ice maker on the shelf where you can close the door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 30 seconds and open the door. The ice maker should be cycleing. Pull the jumper and place the module cover back on. Put the ice maker back in the rails. It should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Let me know how you make out. Catriver.

Ice maker stopped working


If you manually advance the ice and when the ejector blade reaches 10 oclock that when it calls for water. You should hear the valve come on. If not it could be a bad water valve. Part#2552A or you might want to doublecheck to see if your getting voltage there when the blade reaches 10 oclock. If no voltage then the water switch is bad.

Not getting water to ice maker or water despenser


1st make sure the water is on. Then advance the icemaker. What model do you have. If you dont have a electrical display then remove the cover and turn the smaller gear with a 5/16 screw counter clockwise. The ejector blade will get to 2 oclock when it will go on its own. When the ejector blade reaches 10 oclock then it will call for water. U-line icemakers have to reach temperature before it advances the icemaker. Again what model is it?

U line ice maker on boat


If this is a stand alone icemaker. Is the unit running? If not check the icemaker ejector blades to make sure that its pointing at 12 oclock. If not then you need to take the cover off the icemaker and turn the smaller gear counter clockwise.(remove cover by gently prying on the inside corners and pull at the same time) Turning it counter clockwise will turn the ejector blade. Once you get it to 12 the plug the unit in and turn on. Compressor and fan should come on. If the unit is running then make sure the fan is operating. Yes then is the compressor on? Yes > then you have a sealed system problem. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Defrosted and now it won't make ice again


If the compressor or fan isnt running. Check your ejector blade in your icemaker.It should be at 12 oclock. If it isnt then remove the cover of the icemaker and turn the smaller gear counter clockwise until the ejector blade gets to the 12 oclock position. This should start the unit.

The water supply line had gotten chewed by the dog. Now the we have the line repaired its up and running. But its got the same noise and not ice is dropping. The noise I am talking about is the same noise...


IF THE ICE MAKER IS TRYING TO DUMP ICE, IT MAY HAVE A PARTIAL CUBE JAMMING THE EJECTOR BLADES, KEEPING THEM FROM COMPLETING THEIR CYCLE. FEEL THE EJECTOR BLADES, ONE AT A TIME TO SEE IF THERE IS SOMETHING WEDGED BETWEEN THEM AND THE ICE MAKER MOLD. THERE SHOULD ALSO BE ICE CUBES IN ALL THE SLOTS, ALL THE WAY UP TO THE FRONT. IF NOT, THERE IS INSUFFICIENT SUPPLY OF WATER TO THE ICE MAKER.

Thanks but, I knew this part was working


Iceman, here's a little deal I wrote, check it out, Catriver
Diagnosing Whirlpool and Kenmore s/s with ice bucket in door.
Upon opening of the door the emitter light should flash 2 times with a pause repeatedly. Then when holding the left side emitter flap down the light should stay on steady. If you have this scenerio, your emitter boards are working properly. If you do not, check the following:
First thing to check is the position of the ejector blades on the ice maker. They should be at rest in the 2:00 postion. If you find them in any other position than that, it’s more than likely a module failure. The module is located on the front of the ice maker. To remove the ice maker from it’s mount, remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the lower right side. Remove the harness cover. Now the ice maker will pull straight out. Unplug the harness. The module is held in by 3 screws in the corners and will pull off.
Often, the black fill tube located on the ceiling will freeze causing a no water fill. This can be fixed by thawing with a hair dryer or some sort of baster using hot water.
To jump start the ice maker do the following: Unplug the refrigerator. With the ice maker out of it’s mount but connected to the harness use a insulated jumper wire stripped a quarter inch on each end and place the jumper in the holes marked T & H on the module. Place the ice maker with the jumper in, on the shelf with enough clearance to close the freezer door. Close the freezer door. Plug the refrigerator back in and wait 50 seconds. Now open the door and see if the module is rotating. If so remove the jumper, put the cover back on the module and place the ice maker back in its mount. The water fill should take place when the ejector blades are at the 12:00 position. Note that on some models, after you have done the aforementioned proceedure you have to press and release the light switch 3 times for the module to start.
