PFSF5RKZC Icemaker stopped making ice.

Most of the time is the ice maker itself that is defective. inside ice maker is an small circuit board that freezes up, if you take ice maker out and leave it overnight out to melt any ice inside the board it may work after that.

We just put in a new water filter in our refrigerator but want to know how to reset because we tried and the light wont go off. also can you tell me if we were not getting ice cubes was it because we...

Hello, W/D here.

Most fridges have the alarm reset tied to the front panel. Mine is a Samsung, and I hold the "ice type" and "child lock" buttons down for several seconds, and that resets the alarm and icon. Since there isn't a brand listed in your question, it's a bit hard to tell you how to reset it. But try a combination of buttons, usually with one of the buttons on one side, and the other button on the other side of the panel.
I do hope that you soaked your filter and drained it several times before you installed it, otherwise, you will probably be seeing small black flecks shortly in your ice and water. You can still remove and soak it; it will help keep the particles from showing up in your ice. If the filter wasplugged, it could contribute to no ice.....
As to why you weren't getting cubes, there are many reasons.... The filter, as you said, could be part of it. Do you have ice stuck in the icemaker? This is the most common reason. If you look in the icemaker and see the ejectors at an odd angle, there's probably a stuck cube that's keeping the icemaker from cycling. Usually, you can dislodge it with the stem end of a wooden spoon. Don't use your fingers, though. Is the on/off bar in the run position? It should be down. If it is stuck in the up position, it is off. That's most of the biggies to check. Please post back if these things do not get you fixed up.
Best regards, --W/D--

Ge profile evaporation fan installation. Where is it located?

It's located in the freezer compartment . May have to remove all panels , including the icemaker , to install it . If the fan isn't working though , the problem is probably the main control board , located behind an 8 " X 10" panel , on the back of the refrig . Usually , a resistor burns out and the freezer fan stops working .

The ice maker stopped working on my Kenmore Mod 106.55532400

either your water valve is clogged or it has gone bad, located bottom right corner, you can take it apart and check the screen filter if it is not clogged than you need a new valve approx 72-80$ plus install unless you diy!
