SOURCE: Ice maker grinding sound

I had the same and found the same solution. Chances are the problem will come back. Just over a week ago (when it was freezing cold in Florida) I took everything out of the fridge and freezer, unplugged it, even pointed a hair dryer in the ice unit. Once I was done it was completely defrosted and dry. I have not heard anything since - and I can sleep again ;-).

SOURCE: Amana ARB8057CSR Bottom Freezer Ice Maker Arm is broken & stuck

If water still continues going to the Ice Maker unplug the pair of wires on the back of the refrigerator that send water up to the ice maker. Now I see I am a little late answering your post, because I just happened to run across it. I was not here when you first posted the problem. Just let me know if you still need help, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: ice maker not making ice. motor is making noise,

Hi, Reach in and see if you can feel ant ice laying on top of the ice maker fingers that might be jamming the ice maker. The motor making a noise is why I suggest this. If you can remove the ice maker and look, it would be better. Another option is to pop the ice maker head cover off and see if the drive wheel is trying to turn or maybe even broke.
Please let me know what you find so I can assist you further.

Not making ice


Did you check to be sure that the arm wasn't raised to the off (FULL) position? Ice makers can be turned off by manually lifting the sensor arm up and latching it in the full position. To release, simply press down gently on the arm and it will return to normal position and ice making should resume. If you already knew this feature, I am not trying to make you feel silly, but there are some that would not be aware of this.

Ice maker subzero 690 stuck won't make ice because i think the plastic flap that rises when the ice bucket fills is stuck and won't come down to turn on the water


There is a screw sticking out from the right side of the freezer wall that has a grey plastic spacer around it that acts as a stopper for the ice level arm. I have seen the ice level arm get stuck on top of this stopper before somehow. you just have to carefully bend the level arm around it and move it below the grey plastic stopper. If it is not stuck above that but the arm still will not come down, then the only other solution is likely a new icemaker, as the arm is geared internally to the icemaker to rise and fall as the ice is made.

How do I get the ice maker to produce for the first time


Is the arm that gets pushed up by the ice cubes (in order to stop making ice when it is full) in the down position? it is able to be pushed up and locked so that the icemaker doesn't make at ice and may need to be pushed down.

Ice maker bin indicator arm is stuck in the bin is full position


You should be able to move it gently to the lower position.  If it doesn't want to move don't force it.  Try shutting the ice maker off in case the arm is frozen in the up position.  After the ice maker defrosts a bit try again to move the arm gently.

Ice maker arm issue


If you are a real DIY'er, remove the ice maker from the frig and see if the arm has or had a spring return down or check its position with the cam that operates it as it goes around.
