Hello.
It sounds like the sensor on the arm is bad and will not stop the production of ice. You will need to replace the icemaker with part number IM6 and this will fix your problem.

Icemaker is making ice but will not dispense. continues to accumulate then over time ice in the bottom of the dispenser will freeze


I can think of two possible problems. The ice has frozen together and will not allow the ice screw to push the ice out the dispenser. Or the motor for the ice screw is broken.
1. Shut off icemaker with lever at icemaker
2. Remove ice container (either throw away ice or save in another container).
3. Put back empty ice container.
4. Leave ice maker off for about an hour.
5. After an hour , check if motor is working by trying to dispense ice. You should not expect any ice but you should hear the motor /auger moving.
A) If you do not hear any thing , you need to get your motor replaced.
B) If you hear the motor , mostlikely you had an ice dam which prevented the ice dispense from working..You can turn you icemaker on.

Unit icemaker wont make ice cubes or is slow to make cubes


The thermostat that cycles the icemaker is not working. Or freezer temp is not cold as it could be. Try setting freezer setting to E and fresh food to 8. Make sure not to have anything that freeze real easy on top shelf. Put can drinks on this shelf or pickles. I hope this helps.

Amana ABB2224DES - 5 years old - freezer is not keeping ice cream frozen it is mushy - the freezer setting has been set on 6 for a long time


Check temp. should be around 0. If not check to make sure condensor fan motor is working. Check condensor for lint. Do not put ice cream in door shelfs this is the warmest point in freezer. if has a icemaker, check to see if ice in bucket has a wet look or dry look. Wet is a not cold enough. dry is cold enough. If refrig is cycling of and on and temp is 0 , ice dry... possible bad thermastate/ sensor.

You can have a couple of things causing this. First do you see flakes in the ice cubes? Yes replace the icemaker. No then I would remove the cover off the icemaker (pry on the corners and pull) Check to see if the motor gears is rusty. If yes then its causing the motor to run slow and overfillilg the icemaker. You can also check to make sure the fill tube is pointing downward in the water cup of the icemaker. If that looks goo then it cold be the matter of replaceing the faceplate of the icemaker. That would replace the switch, motor and gears.

GE TBX21ji Refridgerator/Freezer Factory Icemaker quit making ice


Normally, when the temp of the icemaker gets to about 14 degrees F, the icemaker goes into the harvest mode, turning on the mold heater and attempting to eject the cubes. When the heater has warmed the mold sufficiently to release the cubes, the ejector can continue and push out the cubes, then the icemaker fills with fresh water to beging to make a batch of ice again. Manually starting the cycle as you have done only allows the cycle to start without the temp sensor seeing the 14 degrees. The mold heating generally takes a couple minutes. If your mold heater or the temp sensor are not working, you will have to replace the icemaker, as they are not available as a repair parts.

You must reset the icemaker. There is an off / on button. You might have to remove the ice container. Mine is above the container at the back of an upper shelf. First, turn the switch OFF for about 30 seconds. Now, turn the switch ON, then push it tightly inward in the ON position for about 30 seconds. This will "jump start" your icemaker and you shouldn't have any more problems.

Whirlpool ET21DMXDW05 top freezer. icemaker not working


Give it some more time. The icemaker has an internal thermostat and it will not come back on until it reaches 16 degrees. It takes a while after it gets warm. if it doesn't start functioning in a few more hours you may have other problems. Hope this helps

Ice maker does not stop working and overfills, then ice dispenser does not work and pushes door open.


Continuous ice production, too much ice in the bucket, ice cubes overflowing the bucket, ice cubes falling behind the bucket or ice lifting the chiller shelf can now be resolved by installing a redesigned feeler arm. The new arm is designed with a slight curve to cycle the icemaker “OFF“ before the cubes overflow the ice bucket. Order part number WR49X10103.
