Re: ice maker

Generally not. They do have a float to control water fill and an arm or visual sensor to determine when the bucket is full. If the unit isn't working, some allow you to remove them for cleaning. Remove it and visually check it out...including corrosion of power connectors.

Ice maker not working. Have replaced the Ice Maker and still not working. Is there a fuse for the ice maker controller or reset button? I have the Whirlpool Conquest Gold Series between 8 and 10 years...

Roger... this is going to sound way to simple. The ice maker power is cut off by the door switch. Check the door switch. 1/2 of the switch powers the light and the other half powers the ice maker when the light is off. That stupid little door switch has tripped me up several times and I work on them!!! There is one locking tab on ONE side of the (usually white door switch to pop it out of the chassis. It will have 3 terminals on it. One is a common wire, one powers the light (door open / plunger extended) and the other one powers the ice maker (door closed / plunger depressed)

Don't buy a controller yet!!!!

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I turned off my ice maker with the switch on the ice maker now it wont turn back on. Is there a reset or a way to reset the ice maker

How did you know it is not on? A single cycle for an ice maker takes some time to complete. They don't have reset buttons. You just lower the arm to turn it on and raise the arm to turn it off. The cycle goes like this. The tray is filled with water then as the water freeze it reaches a temperature that which triggers a sensor. Then a heating element melts the bottom of the ice then the mechanism rotates and dump the ice. Cycle starts again. This single cycle can take a few hours to complete. If the cycle is interrupted by turning off the water, it could take a while because the ice maker will go through the cycle regardless.

Hi, my model# is psi23scna. the whole unit

Check all your pin plug connections and then unplug the refrigerator for about 20 minutes with the ice maker turned off. Plug refrigerator back in and then switch the ice maker switch back on. This should reset board and ice maker which is also electronic. If this works let me know if not then tell me and i will send you the service manual. You either have a loose connection from board or a defective new board or electronic ice maker. Or just may need to have everything reset so they know they are connected to the new motherboard, Sea breeze

Ice maker stuck

Switch the ice maker off then back on should reset it . It is possible that the 'ice mould heater' is not working so the ice cubes don't realease from the mould , jamming the motor. Replacement ice maker is usually the solution
