Icemaker not making ice


If no water is getting to ice maker either the water feed solenoid is not working, the water line is no good, or the cam mechanism of the ice maker is not switching the solenoid on.

Ice make has stopped making ice


Try filling the icemaker with a cup of water where the ice is made. Make sure the shut off arm is up. wait like a day. if it does make ice then you water valve needs to be replaced. if it doesnt replace the ice maker. also dont forget to check the tube behind the ice maker. it feed the icemaker with water. if that freezes up then water cant make it to the ice, thus ice maker and valve are fine. get behind the frig at the upper top right behind where the ice maker is but outside back. there is a tube that can be pulled out that is the feeder tube make sure no ice, do this ok?

Leaking water on floor only happens when making ice


I wonder if you just notice the noise now because the leak has you more aware? First things first. Lift up the arm on the ice maker (a few hours prior to attempting service) to stop it's operation. You need to roll the unit forward to give you access to the back. You'll see a plastic tube that runs from the bottom compartment (water valve) to the ice maker fill tube. Lower the arm of the ice maker and observe the plastic tube for the location of the leak. The most likely spot would be at the top. A hose clamp can be put on the fill tube after making sure the plastic supply tube is completely inserted into the fill tube. The fill tube is the piece that goes through the rear bulkhead and delivers the water to the icemaker. It may be neccessary to remove the icemaker to thaw out the fill tube using a hair dryer.

Icemaker not producing ice


you need to troubleshoot the problem, if the wire arm that tells the ice maker to stop making ice when full is in the upright position the ice maker will not make ice. the problem has to be either the switch on this arm malfunction. but probably in MOST cases it is your electronic water valve which has gone out. this is located on the water supply line on the back of the fridge at the bottom probably behind some cardboard or plastic. it is the same kind of water valve as a dishwasher uses, if it malfunctions it will not deliver water to your tray, manually fill the tray and put the arm down, if the maker dispenses the ice out of the tray, chances are your electronic valve is broken.

Icemaker makes tons of ice and it spills all over the floor


The icemaker should have a thin metal arm that turns it off when the arm is raised, and on when the arm is lowered. This is so when the tub of ice gets full, the cubes push the arm up, and the icemaker is turned off to keep from making excess ice.

When I had the overflowing ice, I checked my icemaker and found that the arm had fallen off (and thus the icemaker won't know when to stop making ice). I found the arm and stuck it back on, and all was well. It may be a bit tricky, and it might take some ingenuity to keep the arm from falling back off.

I hope this helps!

Ice machine not making ice


Hi, everak11,
Three possible solutions for you.
1: No water coming in from inlet valve. Check voltage on inlet if you have voltage and no water then replace valve.
2:Icemaker not cycleing. Lift the arm on the icemaker to shut it off and leave it for about an hour. Come back in and turn the icemake back on by lowering the arm. If the icemaker does not begin a new cycle and the arm start rising then the problem is most likely an icemaker. Replace Icemaker
3:Refrigerator not cold enough. If the freezer is not getting cold enough the icemaker will not cycle. Check the temperature in the freezer and make sure it is getting down to 0 degrees. If not then you may have another problem with your refrigerator. I hope this helps you, Let me know if you have any other questions or symptoms. Mike
