Have a scottsmanicemachine doesnt drop ice compressor on water on water runs on coils goes to harvest but makes no ice coil usualy have a ice buildup before it harves

The water runs over the evaporator coil(plate) until the ice gets thick enough, than when the ices touches a switch for the thickness you have it set for, it to go into harvest and the hot gas from the liquid line goes through the evaporator making the ice fall. If you are not making ice, it is the refrigeration system not working, so check the refrigerant, compressor etc like you would on any refrigerator or freezer

Ice cube dispenser not working

Hi there, did you find the answer to this problem? We have exactly the same issue. We noticed a burnt smell in the freezer, mainly transferring to our hands when we touched packaging. The ice dispenser was working fine but the ice started to taste funny (a bit like burnt plastic) and had black bits in it. We took it out to clean the tray and since putting it back in, it just won't work. We don't know if we have put it back in wrong or if something has blown. We can still hear the motor when we try to press for ice, but nothing comes out. No water is making its way into the ice cube tray to form the ice, but we still have cold running water. I would be so grateful for any help. Thanks

I;m not getting any water to my ice maker for it to make ice?


It isn't the water supply hose that would be frozen since that is outside of the refrigeration area.You need to verify (if you haven't done so already) that you actually have water supply to the back of the fridge first. If so then take and clean the mesh filter on the fill valve.Use a needle, pin, or a sharp pointed pick to remove it.
Clean the filter (by using toothbrush or a small fine wire brush, and brush it under a slow running water tap). You can see how well you've cleaned it by holding it up to a light and you will see whether there are areas which may require more attention.
Once you are satisfied that it is clean, place it back in and connect your water and test.

Also an icemaker has something called a fill cup, which holds the water from the supply hose as it is being drained into the ice mold. If this ice maker part is not aligned properly, water doesn't make it from the supply valve to the ice mold, and you don't get any ice. Check to make sure your fill cup is properly aligned. You can check this ice maker part by removing the ice bin and having a look, adjusting if necessary. If you have ice forming on the water spout, you could have a leaky water inlet valve, another ice maker part which will need to be repaired.

Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Frigidaire FSC23F7DSB0 Dispensing Water Causes Ice Tray Overflow

Computer board?...doubt it. This sounds like two solenoids (an electro-magnet that when energized sucks into it a mechanism, water valve etc)...the 2 solenoids might be sharing the same connection.

The two solenoids are "separate devices" and usually behind the fridge at the bottom. One is for water on the door and the other the ice maker triggers...although they might look like one whole solenoid as sometimes the water feed runs through it to feed the other. They are still "electrically separate."Look for something that got bumped / wire terminals touched together.

Icemaker quit working after I cleaned the coils.

After checking the fill tube (line that fills the icemaker) to make sure it's not frozen , pour about 3/4 cup of water into the icemaker . If the icemaker dumps the water but doesn't refill , replace the water inlet valve . If the icemaker doesn't dump the ice , replace the icemaker . ALSO , make sure the fan which cools the compressor is working . Possible when cleaning the coils , a glob of lint or something , was sucked into the fan and blocked the blade from turning .

Machine is running but i have no ice

If runs water all time suspect water valve is stuck with scale or something holding it open. Waster will continue to flow and no ice made because introduces new water into sump all time.

Turn off water and see if makes ice. If so remove water valve and take apart and clean or replace as needed.
