Frigidaire side by side with ice maker .. ice maker jams and quits making ice


Hi,
Hollow ice cubes are a result of lack of water to ice maker. This can be caused by lack of water pressure (clogged filter, bad water valve, obstructed fill tube, etc..) you will need to find the cause to correct this hollow ice cube issue. The ice maker should take on 5.5 oz of water when it cycles (2/3 cup). Mot of the time its a water supply issue and the line could be kinked behind the unit as it was rolled back into place.

Good Luck

My icemaker is making hollow ice cubes what is causing this?


I would guess that the freezer is turned down too low to give the water in the ice maker time enough to freeze solid before the action of the ice maker completes it's cycle. Turn the freezer thermostat up to max and see if this makes a difference. After checking, if the ice is frozen solid, then dial it back half way between where you had it set and max, then check again.

The ice maker is making 1 tray of ice a day


There are 3 things needed to make proper ice.

Water, cold, time.

Check the cubes that are being made, they should be the same size crescent shaped. If they are not solid and some are hollow or broken then you are not getting enough water to the refrigerator. This is usually caused by the little valve on your house piping that connects to the refrigerator being plugged with sediment.

If the the cubes are all solid and the same size check the temperature of the freezer, it needs to be below 10 degrees F and works best below 5 degrees F. If it is warmer than that it will only produce ice on a very slow schedule. If you do not have a thermometer ice cream is a good indicator of temperature. If ice cream is hard the temperature is below 5 degrees F, if it is soft you are not cold enough to make ice cubes either.

If all this checks out alright you may need to have the ice maker replaced. the modular ice makers are available for sale at most all part retailers.

My ice maker is letting too much water go into the ice tray so it freezes in a solid piece. Cubes do fall down but there is so much water it freezes into a solid block


The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount of water fills the ice tray.

My GE Profile refrig ice maker makes hollow ice cubes. Why would this happen?


Not enough water is being pumped into the icemaker. The water pressure in the water line coming into the refrigerator may be too low, perhaps due to a blockage somewhere.

Move the refrigerator enough to get behind it. Turn off the water at the small valve which connects the water line from the house plumbing to the tube going into the refrigerator. Get a bucket. Remove the refrigerator water line from the on-off valve (there should be a compresson nut holding it on). Point the incoming water line into the bucket and open the valve. Do you have a good flow of water? If so, either there is a blockage in the tubing within the refrigerator or the water valve at the bottom of the back of the refrigerator is malfunctioning.

Hollow ice cubes. Ocassional clunk sound and


Hollow cubes indicate the water inlet valve is defective ( not letting enough water into the ice maker ) . Replace the valve behind the refrig ( the piece the wall water lne connects to on the refrig ) . Do not try adjusting the water on the ice maker itself , even if someone else suggests it , as this adjustment is factory preset .

Maytag msd2356ae ice maker will only give me hollow ice any ideas.


Hi,
Hollow ice cubes are most often cause by insufficient water supply. Icemakers fill for about 7.5 seconds, resulting in about 4.75 oz. (140 cc) of water into the ice cube mold. If there s not enough water pressure available at the fridge, cubes may end up hollow and/or the fill could continue to dribble, eventually causing the fill tube to freeze closed.
pls rate my suggestion.........

Ice maker quit making ice


your refrig has a built in bypass in the filter housing so yes it will work with out a filter in place. if you have not replaced your filter in the last 6 months that is likely the problem. Hollow cubes are usually a sign of not enough water getting into the icemaker then it cycles too fast and harvests hollow cubes.

when the hollow cubes fall into your bucket they bust and put water in with your cubes freezing them together. so by solving your water supply problem you'll solve most of your icemaking issues..
