Re: Ice cube aker stopped working

The ice maker is operated by a small motor. look for it, disconnect the power and measure the voltage with a voltmeter from that connector source. If power is there, then the motor may have expired.

Ice make stopped working and now makes only 12 cubes per 12 hours

All ice maker operations are based on freezer temperatures. Check the freezer temps. If, you are satisfied your freezer is at zero or better. Then you need a new ice maker.

your model will have a filter for it. it is located usually on the fridge side torwarss the top back of the fridge. it sounds like you need to replace the filter. it needs to be replaced every 4 monthes or so to keep the water clean. also you may put some water in a cup from the tap/faucet and make sure it is not the water it's self. if it is you may want to think about also having a water filtration system installed in your home.

Ice Maker Making Noise

I was able to solve this problem by doing the following:

1) Carefully (because there may be sharp metal blades in this area) reached into the upper left compartment of the icemaker and pressed down on ice cubes that seemed to be lodged there and were protruding slightly above the slots they should have been passing through.

2) Press down on the cubes, forcing them through the slots and into the cube container below

3) Lift the metal arm, remove and completely empty the ice cube container

4) Return the ice cube container to the freezer, making sure it is seated properly

Close the freezer and wait until the ice cube maker begins to make new ice cubes. The sound should stop in around 10-15minutes.
