Often these icemakers just get jammed because the ice cubes stick together. Carefully dislodge all of the existing ice and it should be ok

I have a GE Adora side-by-side refrigerator Model # DSD26DHWA-BG. About 1 year ago the ice maker stopped producing ice. The mold that forms the ice cubes is filling up with water but never pushes out...

Hello, there are three screws that hold the icemaker in place if you remove these three screws and unplug the icemaker and remove it from the unit. After you take the icemaker out take the entire unit with the cover on it and run it under hot hot water this is actually quiet common for an icemaker to freeze up well actually its the parts on the inside of the icemaker that are freezeing up. After you defrost the icemaker as I term it then you would dry the icemaker and reinstall it. when the icemaker reaches 32 degrees the icemaker will call for water once again from the water valve if at this time after the ice forms the unit still doesnt drop the icecubes then you would have no other alternative then to buy another icemaker they usually sell for around 50-90 dollars american. The icemaker is not worth replacing parts on due to if you were to replace parts on the icemaker you would end up spending about 4 times as much as the entire icemaker costs. If you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future. Thanks again Rick

Ice maker not working

This problem where the icemaker is not working properly is usually broken into sections on diagnoseing the issue of why your not getting ice out of the icemaker. One of the first things that you should check is if the icemaker is getting water to the ice tray. If you are not getting water to the ice tray then the first thing you should check would be your water filter. If your water filter is clogged or dirty you will not get any water going to the icemaker. Following checking the filter and if you still had no water going to the icemaker you would then go around the back of the machine and test the water valve. By using a multimeter you can test the two connectors that plug onto the solenoids to assure that you do have power going to the water valve. Also in some cases you may be able to disconnect the line and clean the small screens on the inside of the valve but most of the time if there is any issue with the valve it is by far easier to just replace the water valve itself. If you do have water going to the Ice maker yet your icemaker is still not working. You can also try defrosting the ice maker by disconnecting the three screws holding the ice maker in place and removeing the entire icemaker and running it under hot water. Sometimes this does help to defrost parts that are froozen in the unit. If after you reinstall the ice maker and you do have water going to the ice maker yet your unit still does not produce ice, and you can feel ice on the inside the tray and you have tried defrosting the ice maker. It is always easier and cheaper to replace the ice maker as a whole rather then buying parts for the ice maker which would cost you about Four times as much as buying a new icemaker

Ice maker not making ice for kenmore elite 795.5882

Hello there
first see it is or isnt getting water to the ice maker. which is fed by the water feed solenoid if there is , there is plenty of water pressure, and no blockage check really closly to see if there is any ice buildup on feed tube in freezer. if so remove every thing from inside and let the unit sit over night with it unplugged to fully defrost the entire thing
there might also be a problem with sending the signal to the solenoid to feed water to the maker. so you may want to have this checked out and finally if every thing in the ice maker works except its not getting water then i would have the icemaker electronics checked out to see if they are getting a signal

Ice cube maker does not work what can be the poblem

first of all assure that u are getting water inside of the tray of the ice maker if you have no water then u will want to ceck in the back of the unit down the bottom a blue or white plastic piece this is called the water valve assure that u are getting water through the tube into the icemaker sometimes on some units there willbe a freeze up in the line if this is the case then you would have to defrost the line itself if your unit is getting water and u can feel ice on the inside remove the entire icemaker unit and run hot water to remove all frozen ice then reinstall your doing this becasue sometimes the gear cannot turn becuase it comes out of postion and sometimes this does make the gear go back to normal after u install you would have to wait till your icemaker once again reaches 30 degrees and then it would start making ice again if it doesnt not make ice at this point then u would have to buy a new ice maker cheapest way ton get a new icemaker is through marcone appliance parts and they will ship it to your door hope this helps

Ice maker is not working

ok one of the first steps is to make sure your getting water inside the ice maker feel with one of your fingers if you can feel ice or water on the inside of the tray if you have ice then you would have to disconect and remove the ice maker fromthe machine and run hot water to clean out the ice build up on the inside then reinstall the ice maker back into the machine and test for 24 hrs to see if you get ice if you dont then you have to replace the icemaker. If you do not have any water going into the icemaker water tray then you would have to check the water valve located in the rear of your machine if the water valve is not bringing water to the icemaker replace the water valve hope this helps

Icemaker not making ice

Hi reach up and feel inside the ice tray where the ice is made. If you feel some ice then the ice maker is bad and should be replaced. If you feel in the tray and it is empty then either the water line is blocked or the valve is bad.

The way to determine which is to pull the unit out and remove the lower panel at the back. Trace the water line for the ice maker to the valve, remove the water line from the valve and blow through it. If you are able to blow through the line the valve is bad, if not able to blow through the line there is a blockage. Trace the blockage in the waterline from the valve up to the ice maker and thaw the ice blockage with a hairdryer.

If you have any other questions please feel free to ask. Mike

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Yes the inlet can be frozen. You can most of the time feel is with your finger if there is and ice build up by reaching all the way to the back and top of the icemaker where the inlet funnel is. Even if you can not feel it there can be ice build up.

There is a quick remedy for this if you have a hand held blow dryer.

1. Unplug the unit
2. Use the blow dryer on the ice maker for about 10 minutes or until it is warm to the touch.
3. Plug the unit back in and the dripping should not re-appear. It may take 12 hours or more before you know if cured the dripping problem.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Icemaker stuck in 'vacation mode'

Feel inside the ice slots are there any old cubes that have evaporated in time? Take the ice maker out and clean it up and place it back inside to see if it will fill with fresh water. Take a hair dryer and melt the old ice inside the slots and see if it will try to fill. I will wait for a response from you.
