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.

SOURCE: Ice maker stop making ice

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.

My icemaker for the LG French Door/Bottom Freezer Model # 25770SW is making very little ice.


Hi,

If the ice maker is producing ice poorly, making small cubes or too few cubes then it means your ice maker is probably have a clogged water line, a defective water-inlet valve, or a defective ice maker mold thermostat that is not cycling properly.

First, check the water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure it is having a good water flow. If the flow is poor, that means you will have to, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water in the ice maker.

Second, check the water-inlet valve. You will need to replace the water inlet valve if it has failed.

Third, check the freezer temperature. It should be 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

Lastly, check the ice maker mold thermostat. Make sure that it's cycling properly.

The above is what you need to check on........

I hope this helps....

Take care.

Ice maker stopped working


Good day,
A step by step procedure should resolve your problem. If the dispenser is working, you can skip that step.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

Ice maker not making ice. do have water, no ice


The ice maker has a problem The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

Hi

If the ice maker has completely stopped producing ice then check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. For this you need to look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary. If the ice maker is producing ice poorly i.e. if it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

Air in line to Subzero icemaker


Are you sure there is still water available to the ice maker?

Having a little air in the line might make the water spit a bit but it should be quickly purged and function again.

Also, lift the stop lever on the ice maker inside the freezer compartment, then let it back down to cycle the ice maker and see if that re-initiates the ice making cycle. You'll know because there will be water in the ice tray. It may take a few minutes to cycle.

It's also possible that when the water was turned off and back on, some debris in the water line made its way to the water valve for the ice maker and plugged it. Some units have a screen that can be cleaned, but make sure the water is off to the fridge before disassembling this line and attempting to clean any debris.

If your fridge has a control board on the back of the unit, un plug the fridge for about two-three minutes and then plug it back in to reset the system.

If you did get it to work again, toss the first two to three sets of ice just in case there was dirt in the line.

Water will not flow into ice maker


This has happened to me a couple of times. First check to see if water is dripping from the water line on the back of the freezer. If it is that means ice has formed at the intake on the back of the ice maker and isn't allowing water to get in. Pull everything out and defrost the freezer for 3 - 4 hours. Make sure you dry everything out before putting the food back in.
