It sounds like you need to adjust the size of the ice cubes.

If they stick together in a long row, to much water, and then of course if they are too small that is also a problem. All you have to do is remove the outer cover of the icemaker and look for the set screw. It will stand out from the others. and be marked with a Plus and a Minus sign. Whichever you are having the problem with, adjust accordingly. I would try 1/4 turn increments. See how that works after One day and then re-adjust as needed.
Hope this helps you out.

The dual water valve (solenoid) that open and let the water from the line when the ice maker calls for it, is leaking and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: ice cubes taste funny; cleaning the cube box, and

I've experienced this before, and have two solutions that helped. One is, boiling the water prior to putting them into the ice tray. And two, you can fill up your ice tray and then wrap it with aluminum foil. I've heard saran clear wrap also works, but I've used aluminum tin foil - and it helped. I hope this works for you. I've tried both of these solutions, and it made a difference. So I hope it works for you. Good Luck!

I cleaned the ice cube box & returned it to the RF20 Samsung fridge. Now it does not make ice cubes, Why?


Try re-seating the ice cub box, and make sure any ice maker moving parts, such as the ice bail wire are properly positioned and move freely. Sometimes the actuator and ice cube box do not line up correctly.

Make sure the ice cube box parts move freely.

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.

My whirlpool refrigerator model # is no longer making ice consistently it will drop a few cubes every now and then. the lines are clear and no blockage what could be the problem?


Scale builds up in older icemakers and some of the cubes stick and don't eject.
Check your ice maker after it dumps and see if its keeping some of the cubes and
not ejecting them.
There are cleaners for the Icemaker. Call your local Parts Store.
also
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects theb you 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.
Thank you for using fixya

Have a jennair refrigerator mdl#jfi2589aes took the ice cube storage box out to fill cooler, when i put it back in the ice cube maker will not dispense ice cubes to the storage box, ice maker is making...


Hi

This usually is because the drive on the ice box is not engaged,
1. Remove the ice box and empty it into a bowl
2. Replace the ice box and turn the auger (spiral metal inside) until it locks into the drive motor
3. Ensure the box is pushed back as far as it will go
4. Put ice back into ice box
5 Try dispensing ice again
This is a common problem as there are teeth on the back of the ice box that have to align with the drive motor in the back of the freezer

Hope this helps

Water in icemaker overflows into ice cube storage box AND CAUSES ICE CUBES TO FREESE TOGETHER AND FORM BIG ICE CHUNKS. ALSO THE FULL SHUT OFF PADEL HAS ICE FORM ON TOP OF IT


Check the ice maker after it dropped the ice cubes and when it calls for water it should be pouring it for no much more than 7 seconds ,if more it overflows, in this case the module board inside the ice maker has to be replaced(or for almost the same price with parts and labor you can replaced it for a new ice maker) But if water is sitting in the ice maker all the time , the dual valve which supplies water to the ice maker is leaking and needs to be changed (it's located at the back of the fridge in the bottom behind the cover where the water line is hooked up).
