Hello Danny;

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

This is just a bad design.

The only thing you can do is raise the lever arm to the shut off position.

Or, you can reform the lever arm so it clears the bucket. In this case you have to manually control the ice maker otherwise the ice bucket will over fill.

Your ice maker will harvest ice cubes 8 to 10 times within a 24 hour period.

Maytag MSD2651KES delivers crushed ice but no cubed


There is an metal arm that extends out behind the ice bucket that moves up and down when you press the cubed/crushed ice buttons. You need to take the ice bucket out and check the hardware. It's possible that some ice has managed to form in the unit and are blocking the motion. Remove any ice and check if the arm moves freely when you press the buttons on the refrigerator. Similarly, you should check if there is ice blocking the forward and back motion of the plunger in the freezer that bar sits on. This plunger is right next to the auger motor.

Where is the ice maker reset button on a Samsung RS265TDRS?


This ice maker is on the door, so
remove ice bucket
move your fingers up under the ice maker tray guard on the left side until you find a button
you may have to press this several times, perhaps hold down firmly until you see some action
then quickly replace bucket & close door

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)

Ice maker not working on Kenmore Model # 106.54563300 Water comes through water dispenser fine Water came pouring out through ice dispenser door so I flipped bar up to turn it off Removed front box held in...


First the arm has to be in the down position. It sounds like you said theres water in the ice maker. If thats the case then it should have frozed. The ice cannot drop unless the ice maker heater comes on. Then the ice maker scoops the ice and drops into the resoviour thingy. If you have ice in the ice maker tray but no ice in the bucket then the ice maker is defective.

Fridge Freezer model KA58NP90 Ice maker problem


What is most likely your problem is the crushed ice solenoid. This solenoid, which is located next to the auger motor behind the ice bucket, is failing to actuate when you request cubed ice. Its "home" setting is crushed, and actuates to allow cubes past the crushing mechanism in the bucket. To be certain its the problem, remove the ice bucket, and tape the door light switch in the closed position. actuate the ice dispenser lever, for both cubed and crushed ice. you will see a square hole next to the rotating fork, when you select cubes, it should open. If it does open, there is something wrong with your ice bucket, perhaps the arm is broken, or the door inside bucket is off its snap in type hinge or broken altogether. If it doesnt open, replace the solenoid

Ice collects on the bottom of my frost free woods freezer


im not sure if i answered this one before. but this sounds like a blocked drain, the drain is located midway behind the shelves, you can take away the catch tray and poke a coat hanger down this hole hole to dislodge the blockage.

My Bosch frostfree fridge freezer keeps icing up!


My Bosch Frost Free Fridge Freezer did the same thing - Ice forming in the bottom of the freezer area after a few days.

It was caused by a blocked drain pipe - When the freezer does the de-frosting cycle, the melted ice drips into a tray and tehn runs into a dish on top of teh compressor, through a pipe.

If this pipe gets blocked, the de frosted ice overflows from the tray and overflows into the bottom of the freezer and then re-freezes !

To fix, pull the freezer away form the wall, locate the pipe that runs to the dish on top of the compressor and blow through it - This should clear it. Alternatively, from inside the freezer compartment, pull off the cover at the back, but the clips holding it on will probably break off, as mine did ! You can sort of push the cover back on and re-fit the food draws.
