    The agitator (part #3) has come off of the icemaker helix end cap (Part #2). Nothing is broken. How do you get it back on?

    You did not give me a soluction - just look at the picture and figure it out. I need to know how to get the agitator back on the helix end cup.



    Ann

  • akwynn Sep 08, 2009

    Do you have to take the icemaker apart to do this because I am not strong enough to get the agitator around the end cup.



    Ann

  • akwynn Sep 08, 2009

    If you sent me instructions on taking it apart I did not get it nor the one on how to put it back together.

    Prying it with screw driver worked great. I am really suprised that it came apart since it was almost impossible to get back toether.
    Thanks for sticking with me - I was frustrated but you came up with the exact solution.
    Thanks again - Ann

I'm not sure which one or the blades you are referring to. Go to this site address and you will see a total break down of your crusher. you will be able to tell if the one your referring to either clips, pushes or has a nut that hold it on.
http://www.partselect.com/ModelFrames.aspx?ModelID=116358&ModelNum=JSD2697KEY&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=1&Selected=56144&Position=13&mfg=Maytag&Type=&Mark=13

If you cant click on site, go to www.partselect.com and enter your model number. Then you will see a break down of evey section of you unit. you can also buy any part you might need if broken.
when you find the part your referring to and can't figure out how it goes back on. Send me another commit and I'll be glade to help you.

    Notice that #2 has an indention around it. It also has a notch on each side. The end of #3 forms a circle and the end of the wire bends and goes toward the center of the circle that's formed. Line the pieces on #3 where it bends and goes toward the center, up with one of the notch's of #2 and then push the circle of #3 over the indention of #2. Push in together and it will click into place.

    The solution I had sent, I copied and pasted above. I noticed that you stated that you were not strong enough to take the ice maker apart. You should be able to put the parts #2 and #3 together without taking it apart. Try to remove the ice bucket from the freezer and sit it on the table or some where so you can get a better look at it and to get to it better. To remove the ice bucket, pick up on the end closest to you a little and pull forward. When it's almost out, pick up on it a little more and it should slide right out. When you go to part #2 and #3 together you might find that #3 is binding to the side to #2. If so use a flat screw driver and pry it over to where it goes. #3 will be tight against #2 due to the way it's made, so when you get #3 in line with #2 they most likely will click themselves together. I sure hope I have helped you, I know you sure are trying to fix it. I think you can, good luck.

    Sorry now I see what you said that you are not strong enough to do. Use a butter knife, spoon handle or something like that. Pry it over on to the cap. If it's binding, I most likely would not be able to force it over either. When you pry part #3 . pry it in a way like #3 is a spring that is pushing. This might help you see a way to pry it over. I wish I were there, I would be glade to do it for you. I feel helpless trying to help over the internet like this. Sorry if I'm confusing you with my instructions.

Whirlpool bottom freezer ice maker will only make ice if I pull and then replace the ice container, why?


The ice maker works off a timer that controls the discharge of ice, water fill, etc. Right before the tray discharges ice it is heated slightly so the ice is just slippery enough to discharge the ice. Unfortunately, now and then (for us) a chunk of ice remains in the tray. This chunk prevents the blades from rotating and eventually you have a mass of new ice with the blades in the wrong position. The blades have to be in a certain position for the heater to kick in. You are stuck with cracking up the ice stuck in the tray to get the blades to rotate again. We have an Electrolux ice maker but this problem occurs periodically. The root of the problem is it's failure to heat up the ice tray adequately to discharge ALL the ice. One thing to remember is that next time this happens you have to manually break up the ice in the tray and push the timer advance button until the 2 set of blades are fully closed (hidden) and at 90 degrees. From that point on at least the ice maker can start making more ice.

I have a GE Profile refrigerator, Model PFSS6PKWBSS, with icemaker on door. Water is collecting under Deli-draw and leaking down freezer door onto floor. How do I fix leak?


Hi

Try and access the ice dispenser assembly and check from where the water is leaking. You would need to disassemble the ice dispenser and ice maker to check this. The ice dispenser is located in the upper portion of the freezer compartment. This assembly stores ice made by the icemaker and dispenses ice on demand from the door dispenser target switch.
1. Remove the upper ice bucket tray.
2. Slide out the ice dispenser assembly.
3. Remove the ice cube solenoid linkage Phillips head screw and slide the linkage back.
4. Remove the ice crusher cover Phillips head screws (2) and remove the cover.
5. With a pair of pliers, twist off the backing plate tabs located on either side of the crusher.
6. With 2 small flat-blade screwdrivers, unlock the ice crusher locking tabs located at either side of the ice crusher.
7. Lift the ice crusher out of the bucket.
8. Remove the ice crusher back cover.
9. Remove the locking ring from the ice crusher auger.
10. Remove the plastic nut with a pair of pliers by turning it clockwise.
11. Remove the spacers and blades. The blades are numbered for reassembly.

Icemaker--
The icemaker is located in the upper rear of the freezer compartment and supplies ice to the dispenser tub.
1. Disconnect the icemaker cable connector.
2. Remove 1/4-in. icemaker mounting screws and slide out the icemaker.
This refrigerator is equipped with an Electronic Icemaker.

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Siemens Refrigerator model KA58NA70NE The ice maker section is not working. Please advice how to fix it.


I had the same problem and fixed it by changing freezer fan found underneath the freezer inside body, just behind the ice delivery/crusher motor. You need to open all the inside upper components like ice dispenser, ice maker, ice crusher motor, lamps assembly and finally the rear upper inside body cover. First, check whether or not the fan has strong air ventilation before trying to change the ice maker fan motor.

Blades in my Jenn Air ice maker are not turning, ice maker no longer producing ice. Model JTB1988AE.


There may be some ice buld up blocking the lever from turning. A blow drymay be a quick fix. I can't see in there so just guessing. Please leave a good thumbs up for the effort. The Raz Shack

Freezer constantly produces ice buildup along the vents and fan blades inside are striking the ice buildup. Why wont the unit defrost? Also produces large chunks of ice from the ice maker during this time....


SAMSUNG REFRIGERATORS ARE KNOWN FOR DRAIN ISSUES., YOU NEED TO DETERMAN IF ITS FROST {DEFROST PROBLEM} OR ICE {drain issue} IF ITS ICE YOU SHOULD EMPTY IT AND UNPLUG OVERNIGHT WITH THE DOORS OPEN. IF FROST YOU SHOULD CALL FOR SERVICE.

ICE MAKER TAKEN APART -- IN WHAT ORDER DO I RE-ASSEMBLE IT?


Yeah I took mine apart and should have taken a picture of it before I did so. (Not too smart if I do say so.)
I'll put the steps here to assist, but here's a link to a small picture of it.
COMPLETE ASSEMBLY
The parts SHOULD go together in this order.
1. Start with wavy shaft standing on the plastic sleeve.
2. Slide the plate on the shaft.
3. Put the wheel on the plate so that it locks in place.
4. Put one of the rotating blades on the shaft so that it will cut in a clockwise direction. (as it is in the pic) Note that the rotating blades are offset slightly. I have no idea which order they go. Maybe first cut on the inside last cut on the outside. Dunno'.
5. Place one of the large nylon stepped washer with the 2 levels on the shaft with the smaller end facing up. (like the pic)
6. Remove the pin from the stationary blade holder as you will need one of those blades next. Remember how it was assembled or take a picture. :)
7. Place the stationary blade on the nylon spacer so that it will cut in a counter clockwise direction. (opposite to the direction of the pic above and toward the blade you already installed.)
8. Put a wavy washer on next.
9. Then put the angled plate thingy (I have nothing else to call it. It's called a damper in the link.) Place it on so that the edge is downward and the flat side it facing up. You want to place it like the picture on the left.
10. Another wavy washer.
11. Another one of the rotating blades in the same direction as the last one.
12. Place the other large nylon stepped washer on the shaft with the small end facing up like the last one.
13. Put the last stationary blade on in the same direction as the first one.
14. Another wavy washer.
15. Put the last angled plate thingy on in the same direction as the first one.
16. Another wavy washer.
17. The last rotating blade... Again in the same direction as the last 2.
18. Put the last washer with only one step on the shaft. (Looks like a top hat.)
19. FINALLY, put the lock washer on before you have a chance to knock it over and lose all the pieces :P
20. Put the blade anchor on the stationary blades in the same direction that you took it off. The pointier edge should be facing counter clockwise. You should only be able to slide the pin in place from the top. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-msd2351hew-%3d%3di375196&PartID=375196

21. I really hope that this helps someone. This thing is DAMN tricky to put back together. Make sure that the thing rotates easily by hand before sliding it back into your freezer. I expect that if something isn't quite right the motor will just bend the bar or other pieces. After all, it does crush ice!!!

Good luck.

Water leaking out from the inside bottom Jenn Air JRSD245L


It sounds from what you described is a clogged drain line pull the bottom drawer out and look at the bottom of the back wall. see if the drain is backed up with ice if so use the back end of a rubber handle screwdriver and lightly tap the ice until it breaks up clean up the best you can around the drain and pour some hot soapy water down until to you hear it going into the drain pan.. a cup will do....>>the water comes each time the unit goes into defrost as the heaters melt the frost build up on the evaprator it melts and is suppose to go down the drain but if it is blocked then it forms at the bottom of the freezer floor..let me know if you still need the wiring diagram I can email it to you. Hope this fixes YA !
