Question about U-Line Icemaker

Model 95 Icemaker no ice

When the power switch is turned on, the compressor starts and cools the system as expected. The water solonoid never picks and the control motor never starts. I cannot figure out how the small control motor starts from the circut. I checked its resistance and it has about 600 ohms. I think the control motor has to start the sequence but I don't see the path to start it with the two micro switches in their start positions on the cam.
I did clean the sensing bulb in the mold but I have to cut the wires to check its resistance.
What starts the cycle when you power the unit up?

Re: Model 95 Icemaker no ice

To continue.. When you turn on the icemaker, the unit has to get cold and turn off the compressor. That starts the dump cycle and at the last part of the cycle it will fill the mold with water. The next time the compressor turns off the dump cycle will dump ice. It actually goes through 2 cycles before you get ice. Hope this helps. MDB

Re: Model 95 Icemaker no ice

The cycle starts when you turn the icemaker on. It starts the dump cycle when the compressor turns off. The mold heater turns on and the cycle motor stalls until the ice cubes release and lets the moror complete its cycle. Then the compressor starts to repeat the cycle. If the mold heater is bad (it should read about 80-85 ohms) it will not dump all the ice and the mold will overflow on the next fill part of the cycle. If the over temperature switch is bad (checks open) It will not let the mold heaters work. The over temperature switch should NEVER open. If it IS open the mold heaters will not heat. MDB

U-Line ice maker compressor won't run

Dose compressor fell too hot ? There could be several things wrong. First you will need to get out your Volt meter to make all test. With unit calling for freeze cycle the condenser fan and compressor should be running. Check at the compressor to make sure your getting power to the over load switch and then through it to compressor. if not then check to see if compressor is to hot and has the switch open> If so then unplug unit to let compressor cool down so switch will close. when switch closes plug unit back up and start up unit check to see it compressor starts if so then you will need to see what is causing compressor to over heat. could be dirty condenser, low charge, fan dropping out, Bad compressor.

I have a GE Monogram Model # ZIBS2OPASS. it is a small refrigerator and Ice maker. The problem is there is no power to the refrigerator so it is not cooling. There is power to the ice maker (basicly...

Hi this sounds like you have a bad control board, there is actually 2 to this model and could be either one and are not very easy to tell which one, I would recommend calling GE for service.

Will not get cold. the compressor isrunning all the time and will not make ICE. It has a brand new ice maker unit in it, thermostat, and watervalve from last year.

A BI 95 will run until the thermostat is satisfied. The it closes contacts between red and yellow to advance icemaker. Make sure thermostat is set at a warmer temperature. 10-15 degrees is what your looking for in the bucket. After you turn it down and it doesnt cycle then make sure it wires right. Red terminal 1 yellow terminal 2 blue/black terminal3 Or it could be to warm (heavy frost needs defrosting) If everything is running and not cooling then a sealed system is expected. Also make sure you have the right icemaker if not then that could cause everything. Sensor needs to be in the tube about 12 inches.

My u line icemaker was freezing water but my iemaker was not working. I just installed a used icemaker, now the compressor and fan work, but no cool. compresor conections dont show leaks, compressor gets...

If the compressor and fan are both running and no cool then you have a sealed system issue. If you just replaced the icemaker assembly and it freezes but doesnt dump then you might have the wrong icemaker or a bad thermostat.

Boat U-line icemaker turns on but not making ice. Don't see any water at the tray and also not cold. The water source is fine.

You wont have water until the thermostat is satisfied. If its not cooling you have another problem. Make sure your fan and compressor is running. If they are then you need a service tech to look at the sealed system. If the fan isnt running then that would turn the compressor off on overload. Then replace the fan.

Have a bi95 water not going throught inlet valve,hose is clear to freezing tray. took valve apart did not see any obstruction. any suggestions? thanks mike55

The valve assembly for U-lines shouldnt be taken apart. Now the first thing is to advance the icemaker. Remove the cover off the icemaker head. (pry and pull at the same time) use a 5/16 nutdriver or socket on the small gear. Turn it counter clockwise. Whent he ejector blade reaches 1 or 2 oclock it should take off by itself. When the ejector blade reaches 10 oclock then it calls for water.
(ejector blade is the fingers that push the ice out)
How a bi 95 works is the thermostat need to be satisfied first. Then it advances the icemaker. Turn it to the warmest setting. If its set too cold then it would run and never be satisfied.(warmer the setting the more ice it makes) Everytime the compressor cycles off the icemaker should be advancing. If not then the thermostat could be stuck in the freeze mode.
T-stat Terminals 2 is yellow(common)
3 is blue/black (fan & compressor)
1 is red (icemaker)

2&3 closed freeze cycle
2&1 closed harvest mode

Give-me plis a wiring digram manual of the Ice Maker U-Line BI-95

Your going to call U-line and ask for it. 800-779-2547. Now what are you trying to do? I can give you the wires on the thermostat. Terminal 1 is red(icemaker) Terminal 2 is yellow(common) Terminal 3 is blue/black(compressor and cond fan motor) When yellow and blue or black are closed this will run the compressor and fan.Thermostat is satisfied then the red and yellow are closed and it advances the icemaker. Ejector blade at the 12 oclock calls for freeze cycle. at 2 calls for heater to come on(inside icamaker) at 10 oclock it trios the water switch and calls for water.Then back at 12 oclock calls for freeze cycle. Temps should be 10-15 degrees in the bucket. Warmer the setting the more ice it makes.

Ice maker the main temp control or possibly a shorted mold heater. Not a DIY type of repair.
