    can get water but no ice.

  • Anonymous Oct 23, 2008

    I've had the refrigerator for over 4 years, but only a couple of weeks ago, it quit making ice. When I realized ice production had stopped, I opened the cover and saw that the arms that swing around to push ice into the dispenser was frozen in ice in the tray. I thawed the ice by unplugging the fridge. Replugging didn't fix the problem. I did it a second time and additionally removed the water. But, after plugging it back in, still no ice. It still dispenses water.

    Big block of ice got frozen into the dispenser. I took out the dispenser and emptied the block of ice. When I put the dispenser back in, I got one load of ice and now it won't make any more.

It might be that sometimes the little trap door freezes, just open the door and from the inside of the door push it to release it.

Ice maker Manitowoc QD-0212A

This light is a harvest limit light. This light's primary function is to be on as water contacts the ice thickness probe during the freeze cycle, and remain on throughout the entire harvest cycle. The light will flicker as water splashes on the probe. The lights secondary function is to continuously flash when the ice machine is shut off on a safety limit, and to indicate which safety limit shut off the ice machine. Start up of machine after turned off. !. Before the ice machine starts, The water pump and water dump solenoid are energized for 45 seconds to purge old water from the water trough. This ensures that the ice making cycle starts with fresh water. The water fill valve energizes after 45 second water purge, and remains on until the water level probe is satisfied. 2. to pre-chill the evaporator, there is no water for the first 30 seconds of the freeze cycle. 3. The water pump starts after 30 seconds pre-chill. An even flow of water is directed across the evaporator and into each cube cell.

Hi i have km-320-mwh hoshizaki ice machine, this machine is discharging water in drain continuesly except when it is dumping ice is this normal ...too much water is being lost please help many thanks...

By looking at the model number it is a water cooled unit. It will dump water down the drain continuosly as that it how it cools the compressor. If it was a MAH it would be air cooled and no continuos dump of water.

We have a Whirlpool K40 Ice Maker but it seems to have stopped producing ice. The motor is running but there is no water coming into the machine & therefore no ice is being frozen & cut by the...

a few things to check, first off is adequate water supply(obviously).. next check your drain system, if your unit gravity drains look for a blockage, but if you have a secondary drain pump to pump away water check for proper operation, if that pump fails the machine will no longer let water in( thinks it full and no need to produce more ice if it cant get rid of old water

No water inflow into ice machine after turning off ice maker -

Hi, sounds sticky to me, or it wants the kids back home. But anyway try finding the travel of the tube, could have fallen off on other side, or has blockage since we have so much junk in our water today. Also although your filter is green if its good, I would take it out and clean it, not replace just clean it, and a must fine hose must be a problem, wish I was there ! Frankie!

starving for water. clean or replace water filter or adjust water float assembly that determines how big cubes are. probably not getting abundant water during timed fill sequence. no water equals little ice.
