Icemaker will not STOP making ice

Even though the wire on the icemaker is as far up as it will go, it keeps on making ice even though the container is overflowing and ice cubes are pouring out all over my freezer. I've made sure nothing is blocking the wire, I've pushed the wire up manually as far as it will go, the ice is piling up PAST the wire, and still it keeps cranking out ice! HELP!

    I can't find a "sensor" in the icemaker, aside from the wire that's supposed to stop it from making ice when it's in the UP position. It's up as far as I can get it and it's still making lots of ice! All over my freezer! I'm dumping it out by the bagful. It looks like I'll have to call a plumber. : (

Check the sensor that tells the machine to stop harvesting.

Icemaker is not working properly. It will only make ice after the reset button is pushed.


If the ice room is not getting/staying cold enough, the unit will not harvest the ice and proceed through the cycle... First step in troubleshooting is to determine if the compartment the icemaker sits in is cold enough, if it is, then you have to test the ice room temp. sensor to see if it is not sending the correct temp signal to the main board. These icemakers are modular and pretty much have to be replaced completely if the temperatures and sensor check OK. Samsung Refrigerator Temperature Sensor DA32 10104N

I have a GE Profile fridge PSS25MGNAWW with an ice maker that is not working properly. The ice maker doesnt fill with water. If I turn the ice maker off then back on it will squirt water in for about...


HI this is just a test the icemaker runs when you first turn it on, its not suppose to fill up the tray, it will fill it when the icemaker reaches the correct temperature, if its not cold enough in the freezer it wont kick on, if its been sitting for several hours and still wont fill or make ice, you need a new icemaker. The new icemaker part # is WR30X10093

No water flowing to ice maker


to see if icemaker is still good pour a 1/2 cup of water into tray and wait for a day. make sure shutoff arm or switch is on or down (arm down) if it makes ice then the icemaker is ok. if it dont then hold up.
if it makes ice then either the water pressure is too low (or no water) or the water valve is bad. (to check water valve you need a volt meter).
ok back to hold up part... the icemaker actuallys controls the water valve so you can have no water but that doesnt mean the icemaker is bad. so here are the three possiblities to your problem:
ice maker
water vavle
not enough/no water
before you buy anything let me know and we can go over this again
hope this was helpful (or confusing sorry)

Icemaker makes shells. Outside is frozen but


Hollow cubes are caused by not having enough water in the ice mold. Fill it up manually by pouring water in it and see how the cubes turn out.
look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. + is more water.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

There is a screen filter before the water inlet valve in the water line. It can get partially stopped up with sediment blocking water flow.

GE side by side refrig/freezer Mod. TFH24JWTA WH. Ice maker stopped working, stop/start wire is down (on). Get water through the door, but not sure if it goes to the ice maker. Ice maker is empty of water....


usually yes if no water to icemaker could be water valve solenoid. . first you can remove cover on icemaker and put the unit thru a test mode. find the plastic or medal cam in center of icemaker head when cover is removed., theis is a flateblade screw center get a small screwdriver and turn screw counterclockwise for about a 1/4 of a turn , icemaker will start cycling if icemaker ok then it will go througha cycle let it do its thing usually a few minutes for it to cycle, if fills you may have a bad icemaker, if no fill then valve may be bad. make sure you have good water pressure from your water supply that can cause icemaker problems.

Kenmore freezer not making ice


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker ( unless ice is already there ) . If the icemaker dumps the cubes , then the water valve is bad . If it doesn't dump , and holds the frozen cubes , replace the icemaker . Also check your coils to make sure they are clean from dust , lint , etc . Check the fill tube going to the icemaker , to make sure it isn't frozen with ice . If it is , then watervalve is still bad (leaking ) .

Sub zero 550 icemaker not making ice/not working


first off, make sure its under 17F in freezer as icemaker will not start above this...you need to make sure the icemaker is coming on..if so, you may just have a bad water valve. I'd put four ounces of water into the mold and see if it starts by itself dumping out your ice. if it dumps out your ice..look to see if the inlet tube that brings water into your i/m is not frozen up with ice in it..if it is, defrost with hair dryer and wait and see if it starts to work ok dumping ice.if it starts to work ok..replace fill valve..

If you find everything looking normal and your sure no ice plug in fill tube..you can try to start i/m manually..if your confident enough to work with tools and electricity...find the T and H they are close to each other on front of i/m. take an insulated wire and make a jumper that each end has 1/2 of end stripped of to go into i/m T and H..keep in there for 30 seconds and i/m should start on its own..remove jumper and either put i/m back or be ready to catch water should it come on. if no letters on front of i/m just gears. find the small 5/16 gear and turn until rake arm starts to come up. this i/m should start on its own ... if it starts and runs fills, replace i/m...if it starts , but does not fill..your inlet valve may be bad. it helps to have a volt meter for this.. you can remove top and find valve up there or its under the bottom front vent plate. locate wires that go onto valve. use your volt meter to check for 111-130 volts when you restart your i/m as already talked about. remember, it will take several minutes before you notice anything..the i/m needs to cycle first and get to the spot it fills..if you get power and no water and your sure there is water..the inlet valve is bad...

Ice maker is not making ice. I can see no other problem and as far as I know the freezer was not left open as there is no frost buildup inside the unit. Everything is frozen, only problem is NO ICE!!


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker and see if it dumps the cubes after a few hours . If it does , and icemaker does not refill , then water valve is the problem . If the icemaker never dumps the water poured in , then icemaker is bad . ALSO , check to make sure the coils under refrig are clean of dust , lint , etc . Icemaker has to be 5 degrees to operate .

Bin Full light stays on all the time


This is usually an indication that the photo eyes are probably dirty. They "See" across the opening where the ice drops through. If they are dirty, it registers as a fill machine.
A bin stat can cause the same problem.
The eyes and sometimes be a major problem finding them getting to them. On smaller machines like this one, it's hard to get your hands on them.
Good Luck and hope this helps.
