There is a heater that comes on to loosen the cubes before they are ejected. If the heater fails and the ejector tries to move, it can cause the gears to strip.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Side-by-Side Refrigerator No Water to Icemaker or Door

Check to see that you do have water to the water valve on the fridge. You can disconnect right where the water line goes into the valve on the fridge. Next, if you can, check power at the valve while activating the water dispenser. If you have power at the valve when activating then the water valve is bad. Let me know what you find.

Turn ice maker off for 24 hours to thaw out any additional frozen lines.
Make sure that you do have water from source to unit. Water valve grit screen may be clogged with debrie or water valve is bad.

SOURCE: Dispenses crushed ice and will not dispense ice cubes

You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid

Icemaker is in the freezer below refrigerator. stopped making ice. can hear it trying to cycle but no ice. HELP


If ice maker is running complete cycle but not filling with water you may have a bad inlet valve which is located on the back of the refrigerator. It will be the plastic part the house water line connects to. Another possibility is that the house line got blocked somehow. 3rd possibility, is if the icemaker is already full of ice and not dispensing the cubes out of the icemaker. This may be caused by the icemaker itself. There is a heater imbedded in the bottom of the icemaker that comes on and releases the cubes when it is time to dump them. That heater could be bad. That's 3 things to check.

I moved my GE TFX277PFSB (new in 1994) side by side to my enclosed sun porch 2 years ago when i got a new fridge for the kitchen. Today, I decided to run a water line to it to allow it to make ice again. ...


Hello,
Make sure the arm on the icemaker is in the down position,if it is up and locked in place the icemaker is off. If it is down and the icemaker is turned on,each time it got cold enough the to cycle the icemaker(usually about a hour) the icemaker started and for 7 years power was sent to the water inlet valve to fill the icemaker and the icemaker side of the water valve is burnt up. The water valve has 1 inlet teh house water supply attaches to and 2 outlets 1 for icemaker and 1 for door dispenser

I have a 12 year old Sub Zero model 624. The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice. And actually, when opening things up we can see ice cubes have formed but they just haven't dumped into the...


This is the procedure but yours seems to be a faulty Icemaker and needs to be replaced since your freezer is cold enough to make ice rapidly.

Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.
Thank you for using fixya

The water works but the icemaker does not. What could be keeping water from reaching the cube tray?


I'm going on the presumption that there are no ice cubes in the mold. If there are ice cubes in the icemaker mold, then none of this is relevant and it probably isn't a water problem.
If the icemaker's ice mold is empty (no ice cubes since they've already dumped) and there is no water getting to it, there are a couple of possible problems.
The first and easiest is that the water line is frozen. The place to check this is the at the tube above the back of the icemaker where the water comes in. They have been known to freeze up there or at the elbow on the back of the freezer. If this is the case, you can thaw it with a hair dryer. That bend and tube going down to the ice mold is the only place it will freeze up. If you have to cut the manufacturer's pressed on clamp to remove it to thaw it, you can replace it with a small hose clamp.
If all that is clear, the next choice is the water valve to the icemaker is stopped up or bad. When the icemaker cycles, it should hear it kick and the water flow. Looking from the back of the fridge, it is usually in the lower left corner...just follow the water line in from the wall. If it is a "water in the door" model, then there will be two water valves down there. The line to the door will go under the unit, the line to the icemaker heads straight up.
If the unit isn't cycling at all, it is probably a problem in the control module.
Hope this helps

Ours kitchenaid icemaker has stopped making ice. It makes a few very slowley. It has clogged up in the box a few times and we have taken it out and cleaned it out of the frozen pieces. Do we need a part?


hello. i can assist you.
If the ice maker is producing ice poorly--making small cubes or too few cubes--you probably have a clogged water line, a defective water-inlet valve, or a defective ice maker mold thermostat that isn't cycling properly. Check these:

  • The water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure you have good water flow. If the flow is poor, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water.

  • The water-inlet valve. Replace it if it has failed.

  • Check the freezer temperature. If should be 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

  • The ice maker mold thermostat. Make sure that it's cycling properly.

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 !

RS2630SH icemaker slow production


Had the same problem. This allows 12 seconds for the tray to fill. If your water filter is the least bit dirty or the water supply line is clogged a bit, you will get an incomplete fill and the cubes will be hollow, mishapen, or, in my case, all won't eject properly. Replace your filter. If that doesn't do it then use a shop vac with any kind of modification to it that will fit into the supply line and **** out the blockages. Hope this helps.
