Sometimes ice melts in ice maker. Water drips down and refreezes.


There is a heater built into the ice maker bottom to help release ice cubes from the machine. Under normal conditions the heater only come on when the ice maker starts to run and then jambs against the frozen cubes. When it stalls and jambs against the frozen ice cubes, the heater comes on to melt the cubes enough. I think you have a defective ice maker and the heater is coming on to much or at the wrong time, Since your temps go back to normal with the ice maker turned off, I am almost sure thats your problem.

Ice Box wont stay running


Hello Jeff;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Ice Box? You must not be from the Glen Burnie, Maryland USA area.

Ice boxes or ice maker have several controlling factors. Some are repairable. Here is how they work:

1.) Your ice maker will harvest ice cubes 8 to 10 times within 24 hours.
2.) You have a control module in the front of your ice maker. This is like a small control board. It has a motor and plastic gearing system. It also control the lever system to fill your ice bucket.
3.) The control module tells the solenoid valve in the lower back right hand side of your unit to open and fill the ice cube tray.
Then you have a temperature sensor that tells the control the ice cubes are frozen.
4.) You either have a flex ice cube mold that will activate or a heater under the mold tat will turn on for a set period of time to release the ice cubes from the mold.

Send me the model number of your unit and then we can trouble shoot together.

Ice maker only makes crushed ice, no cubes I have the same problem... The same switch works fine for the crushed ice and water setting but will not dispense cubed ice. It only gives crushed.


hi.
I slid out the tray, found the lever in the back where the rod went in, pulled it down, reinserted the ice tray, and IT WORKED! At first I thought I broke the lever, because I had to hold it down with a knife while I was inserting the tray, but it just must have been stuck.
chek these sites
http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/refrigerator-freezer-repair/23620-ice-maker-only-makes-crushed-ice-no-cubes.html

There is an opening next to the auger that dispenses the ice. In there there is a lever that must move up and down. It actually seats the metal rod on the bottom of the ice maker and controls cube or crushed. Make sure the lever is down (cube position) when you return the basket to the freezer. I had to hold it down while I slid the rod into the opening. Cubes again. http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/showthread.php?t=783
if satisfied plz rate this answer
all the best

Ice maker only crushes/does not cube


Remove the ice bin. Look at the back wall, behind where the bin was. You should see a rectangular hole, about 1.5 x 1 inches near the bottom of where the ice bin was. There should be a white plastic part inside the hole. This plastic part should be able to be lifted up with your finger, and drop down again when you release it. If is does not move, it may be frozen, or the electrical solenoid connected to it may have melted. If the part moves freely, just replace the ice bucket and try to dispense cubes again. (the metal arm sticking out the back of the ice bucket might have gotten on the wrong side of the white plastic part in back)

on the bottom of the bin there is a metal rod, this goes into the back wall where the solenoid is. find the square hole it goes into, pull down the white plastic piece with your index finger. you should here a clunk. now put the bin back and check to see if ok. if not you may need to replace the solenoid assy.

I have a 13 year old refrigerator with an icemaker. I installed a water line to get water to the fridge. The hose is connected to the water main and the fridge. I am not getting any ice.


Obviously, your ice maker problem could be any number of things... Now that you have water to the ice maker, is the inlet valve opening to allow water to get to the ice maker itself? If it is, is the line that runs between the inlet valve free to allow water to get to the ice maker? if it is, is the ice maker cycling ( meaning the motor rotates the drive mechanism that times the cycle of opening the valve, rotating the mold tray then releasing the ice with a small mold release heater? An ice maker that's ~ 13 years old probably has a removable front cover so that you can see the drive gears.. Also, is the lever that senses the ice cube bin is over full in a position ( normally down) that allows th eice cube maker to cycle? Hopefully, these simple checks will help you trouble shoot the problem and get your icemaker functioning again. Hope this helps !

Ice maker not working


Depending on the ice maker style, they typically work off a motor timer. The timer motor rotates to set up the ice making process... starting with letting water into an empty ice mold tray, allowing ample time for that water to freeze and then to rotate that mold so that the cubes fall out into the bin. In conjunction with that process, a small heater is turned on to release the frozen cubes from the tray. The 'ice tray full' lever signals the system to stop making ice so you may want to verify that the lever is down and not causing the ice maker to stop, If that's down then I suggest you monitor the position of the motor gearset underneath an access cover. With power applied, the gears should rotate and cycle thru an ice making process. If it does and ice fails to fall out, your heater may be defective. Hope that helps...
