Sounds like what is happening is ice is not being used enough and too many defrost cycles have come and gone inside freezer compartment ,thereby fusing that great big hunk of ice together. You will have to be careful breaking ice up because plastic is not as strong as ice. Hairdryer might help

My ice maker has ice in the tray but not dropping in Ben,it is a kfil27cxmso there is a lite that sends a beam across ben ,how do I check to see if the bulb is blown or working, gk


Hello George;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

I live in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

All ice makers work in the same way.

Your fill cycle is working fine. You have a thermostat in your ice maker which tells your ice maker control module (Computer) that the ice cubes are frozen and ready for harvest. Then, then control module tells the cube tray heater to turn on for so many seconds, followed by the control module to activate the harvesting motor.

So, your ice maker either has a bad thermostat, heater or motor.

The beam across your freezer section is a safety device. On the right hand side is the transmitter. On the left hand side is the receiver with a plastic flapper. When you close the door the flapper closes and completes the signal to discharge ice. When you open the door the flapper pops out blocking the signal.

My Liebherr ign 2566 freezer is having problems with the icemaker. It is producing ice cubes but also water is pouring direct into the tray therefore producing a big slab of frozen water.


Hello there,
You need to check the water inlet valve, it is having a problem, it is not shutting close after filling the ice maker with water. It is already defective hereby causing water to pour out into the tray therefore producing the big slab of frozen water.
You will have to test and replace the water inlet valve. That way, it will stop pouring water into the already made ice that is in the tray.
Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp

The ice maker has stopped making ice


Usually, it's just got a big hunk of ice jammed up inside it. You might check inside the icebox in the freezer to see if that is the case.

Hello: I hope that you can help. The ice maker on this model (et21dk) is spitting out water as well as cubes. As a result, my tray is a frozen lake of cubes. How do I fix this? Thanks. Ben My...


Ben open your freezer section and reach to the very back and top of your ice maker where the water inlet tube is located. Use your finger and check for ice formation near the end of the water inlet tube where the ice maker plastic water channel is.

If there is ice in that area unplug your unit and use a hair dryer to thaw out that area. Try not to keep the hot air blowing in the same place when your using the hair dryer so as not to melt any plastics. This some times just happens all by it self that there is ice formation in the water inlet area. While the unit is unplugged use the hair dryer to free your ice tray also.

Once you restart the unit it can take longer than usual before you have ice cubes again. Not more than 1 day. If you continue to have ice formation in your freezer section then your ice maker has and internal failure of either the water control micro switch or actuation lever. The ice maker can be repaired but the cost will be about 60 percent of the cost of a new icemaker..

Ice maker drips water into ice tray


Probably the solenoid valve leaks(electric valve that opens when the ice maker calls for water) and overflood the ice maker,the only way to fix this is replacing the solenoid.

To much water in ice tray


Most ice makers the ice you have not used in a whils will just stick together. Just take it out and get rid of it. It good to clean out the ice bin once in a while.Russ

Water leaks from ice maker in ice tray.


When the ice maker calls for water it'll be filling for about 7 seconds if is more the ice maker inside control board is bad , but if there's water in the ice maker all the timeeven after or before it calls for water it means that the water valve (solenoid) that supplies water to the ice maker is leaking and you have to replace it.

Kenmore ice maker not releasing ice - it stays in the bottom and ice maker makes sounds like it's trying to kick it out but doesn't. It's frozen in a big block.


Sounds as if your water valve is letting too much water in and too big of ice cubes won't let the rake strip out the ice. Look and see if the ice in the tray is up to the round arm with the fingers. If it is then the water valve needs to be replaced but you will need to get that ice outta there. Take the ice maker down by removing the 2 screws holding it above the tray. Sometimes there is one under the tray as well. Unplug the ice maker and run hot water over the tray keeping the water away from the electronic part. This will release the ice and then reinstall the ice maker.

Another possible problem is the motor module may be broken. Pull the white cover off the front of the ice maker. This will take a little elbow grease. When you access the module (You will see a white dial about as big as a half dollar) see if right in the center of that dial one of the two prongs holding that dial is broken. If you pull on it a bit and it comes off then you are sure that your module is bad. To replace it...remove the three Phillips head screws holding it on. The shut off arm will also be attached...just pull it out with a good tug. Pull the module straight out and replace the module. When replacing the module, you may need to rotate the arm in the ice maker with the fingers on it to fit in the slot in the center of the module. You should have ice within two hours.
