SOURCE: Ice maker water wont shut off continues to run even when tray is full

The ice maker water fill solenoid may be leaking by and needs to be replaced. If you disconnect the water line from the solenoid and you see it continues to flow water then that valve is not seating properly. Another slight possiblility is the ice maker motor module gear is stuck in the fill position. See the attached link for a diagram. If the geared wheel just happens to get stopped in the "fill" position it will fill with full force water. If there is only a trickle of water then the soleinoid valve is the more likely source of the problem. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA56-20.gif http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA56-16.gif

Bad I/M, won't shut off after harvest and continues to restart cycle. Heater in I/M should warm up thermostat after first harvest and stop unit from recycling.

SOURCE: ice maker continualy runs even when ice tray is full

theres aproblem here, I dontquestion that your hearing something operating, but if the valve is being activated, its going to fill with water( thats what it does!) so if your not geting water every few minutes something else is"buzzing"i would look elsewhere fro your problem doesnt sound like the valve

SOURCE: Ice maker won't shut off when full

check the Shutoff Arm:

An arm extends away from the ice maker over the ice cube bin. During each ice making cycle, the arm rises up and then drops back down after the new ice is dumped into the ice cube bin. As ice accumulates in the bin it prevents the arm from dropping back down. When the arm is high enough, the ice maker shuts off and no more ice is made until the ice level in the bin drops.
The ice maker can also be turned off manually by lifting the arm all the way up into a locked position (shown belowef280e4.jpg

The arm is supported at one or both ends. One end extends into the back of the front support (see photo above). If it is not securely in place, it could cause the ice maker to malfunction. Confirm that the arm is securely in place.
For proper operation, confirm that arm is in the lowered position and that nothing is blocking it from normal movement.
To test the shutoff function, lift the arm up into the manual shutoff position. Recheck the unit later to confirm that no ice is being made.
If unit continues making ice even when the shutoff arm is in the up (off) position, refer to the diagnostic table or for a modular ice maker, replace the control module.

check the Shutoff Switch:

Before testing the shutoff switch, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
There are two types of ice makers, those in which all of the parts can be individually replaced and those in which some of the parts are clustered together into a control module. To determine which model you have remove the outer face plate. If there is knob, pull it off first, then pry off the face plate with a small screwdriver.

Modular units have holes in the module's face plate for test probes. If you see several holes, each marked with a letter, it is a modular unit. Component units (like the one shown below) usually have exposed gears and don't have holes for test probes.
Modular units do not use a separate shutoff switch. Instead follow this link to view instructions for checking the shut off arm.

SOURCE: ICE MAKER MOTOR RUNS CONSTANTLY AND WONT' TURN OFF ICE IS FULL

You can take the cover off of the icemaker and with a pair of needle nose plires take off the dile and clean with an eraser. You probly can see the problem when you get the dile off. Let me know if that is works. Has worked for me in the past.

I have a GE refrigerator, model TPX24BPDA, that has an ice maker that won't stop making ice! Whatever mechanism that senses when the hopper is full isn't working. I can't locate any sensor either.


Ice Maker Doesn't Turn Off If your ice maker keeps making ice, even when it is full:
1Lift the bail wireto shut off the ice maker, and remove the ice bin. Then, using a screwdriver if necessary, remove the ice maker, clean it thoroughly, and then reinstall it.
2If the problem persists,consider removing and replace the entire ice maker and valve. With this type of problem, you can have it repaired, but it's often wiser and less expensive in the long run to replace the unit entirely.

Every time ice maker runs, water accumulates at the bottom of the fridge. It is a bottom freezer model made 9-2013. What could be plugged?


Hi,

Check the ice maker fill cup, it could be full of water or ice and all the water misses the ice maker. Check the fill line in the freezer to make sure its in the full cup to the ice maker. CHeck the drain under the evaporator in the freezer to see if it is open and obstructed. Thats what I would look for. Good Luck

My freezer is not freezing anymore please help as can not afford a new one ..thank you


Hi,
Follow the steps mentioned below to solve the problem:
First remove the ice bin and look inside the mold of the ice maker to see if it is full of ice. If the ice sensing arm is down ( on position) and the ice maker is full of ice, there is a failure inside the ice maker and the ice maker should be replaced.
If there is no ice in the ice maker, look at the fill tube on the rear of the ice maker. If the fill tube is frozen up the ice maker can't fill.
You can defrost the fill tube with a hair dryer.
The water valve on the rear of the refrigerator supplies water to the water dispenser and the ice maker. Since the water dispenser is working, the only line that could be blocked runs up the back of the cabinet and attaches to the fill tube for the ice maker. The water valve could be bad and not sending water to the ice maker.
If the fill tube freezes again you should replace the water valve.
Hope this helps.
Shane

My newair A1200ss stopped making ice. i tried recycling the unit and it has ample water, but the ice tray just stays in the down position. thanks.


I have had the same problem with two different portable ice makers, the ice tray inside is broken so you will have to send it to them and get it fixed. Hopefully eventually they will make the tray out of a stronger plastic.
