1 Lower the bail wire to turn on the ice maker, and remove the ice bin. Then, using a screwdriver if necessary, remove the ice maker, clean it thoroughly, and then reinstall it.
2If the problem persists,consider removing and replace the entire ice maker and valve. With this type of problem, you can have it repaired, but it's often wiser and less expensive in the long run to replace the unit entirely.

SOURCE: icemaker want stop making ice

The quick answer is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed.
If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board.
If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker.
You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.
Post back if you need instructions on reparing it.

It is quite possible the water line near the ice-maker is frozen. I would try a warm hair drier to thaw it out.

We shut the water off to our house while on vacation and now the ice maker won't work..did we burn up the motor? We didn't turn the icemaker off. Diana


I would check the water line coming from your house to the icemaker could be clogged. Sometimes when you turn off the water and later turn back on you can get debris in the line

Water doesn't enter ice maker tray


You probaby just have an air lock somewhere. Trace the tube to where it taps into the water pipe. Remove the hose and blow thru it.

My icemaker overflows and does not produce cubes but a solid block of ice over the unit and down into the cube reception tray and over the bottom of the freezer unit. Have removed all the ice and restarted...


Hi
you need to adjust the water level, carefully remove the front cover of the ice maker itself.
On the front of the ice maker, there is a small nylon screw that controls the water intake amount.
If the screw is turned to the Right, it will Decrease the amount of water entering the ice maker.
If the screw is turned to the Left, it will Increase the amount of water entering the ice maker.
The screw should only be turned 1/4 of a turn at a time; therefore, more than one adjustment may be required.
The maximum adjustment is one full turn in either direction. Additional rotation could damage the ice maker..
OR
Dirty icemaker water valve or broken valve can cause icemaker to overflow.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Icemaker will not was dispense ice


My icemaker stopped producing ice. We turned off the water line to it when we went on vacation for a week. We turned the water back on when we got home and since that time it won't produce ice. We can still get water from the door dispenser though.

Icemaker


Check the power conection to the ice maker. If that's ok, then I would think the solenoid that controls the water flow has gone bad. Unfortunately, you will likely have to replace the whole ice maker, I don't think they are reparable.
