Ambient temperature can play an important role. What make and model is this? Is the unit outside? Lets start there.

Electrolux Ref. 3yrs old. ice maker will not make ice, water dispencer will work. I have replaced filter.Ice maker goes through the motion but, no water. can you help me?


Hi,

either your fill tube is clogged or the water valve in the back of the refer has failed. Go to the back of the unit, if my memory is correct the yellow hose is for the ice maker, at the water valve disconnect the 1/4 hose from the valve to the ice maker only, place valve in a bowl, cycle ice maker. If you get water, fill tube is obstructed, if not water the valve has failed and needs to be replaced.

Good Luck

My ice maker doesn't make enough ice cubes


Is the ice maker itself filling normally, meaning where the cubes are made gets enough water to cover the complete area or just a few slots? If not then check the fill tube where the water comes into the ice maker to make sure no ice has formed blocking the water from coming in.
Now if ice production in general has slowed, going from every 45 minutes or so to like every 6 hours, then your machine more than likely isn't getting cold enough. The ice maker requires the temperature be at least 10 degrees F or below for it to function properly.

Put an small brass butterfly valve in the heater line, on both sides. That will turn it off for the summer, and you can turn it on for winter. Alternatively, you could try and do like I'm doing on my '59 Chevy, when I get it out of the flood plain, and route ice water through the heater core.

Ev201nxm door doesn't seal/ices up


I have a EVL201NXRQ05 upright whirlpool. It was purchased in Nov 2008 in the Summer of 2009 the gasket was leaking at the top of the door. The gasket on this door snaps into place (no hardware needed). The problem is the door was bowed in the middle pulling the gasket down and away from the metal frame of the freezer - to the point the magnets in the gasket would not touch in the middle of the opening. I requested a new door while under warrantry. The door did not appear to be repairable it is a glued/foamed-inplace assembly. The new door looked straight when I installed it last summer and now it is bowed but not yet leaking. Whirlpool has a design / manufacture problem with this door design. I have received an extended warranty option from Whirlpool this past week 4 months after the factory warranty has expired. I suspect they know they have any issue, but not much is written about it. I may end up buying the extended warranty, but first I'm going to where I bought it to complain.

Ice maker has quit making ice


Lower the freezer temp. The icemaker won't come on until the temp is low enough.

Ice maker too slow


Ice makers will only drop cubes about every two hours. There is nothing you can do to speed it up. However, if you have low water pressure to the fridge, then you will have slow production. You need a minimum of 30-40 pounds (constant) of water pressure to the fridge for the ice maker to work properly. Things I typically see causing low pressure are: Self piercing saddle valves on the water line (need drill type), and reverse osmosis systems connected to the fridge. In some rare cases a very old water filter or limed up supply line.
