Icemaker not producing ice

Icemaker module and optics have been replaced. Measured voltage @ L1 and M test points on the icemaker module is only 78 volts. Voltage @ the wall receptical is 124 volts. Any idea why there would be a voltage drop to the icemaker?

Whirlpool side by side with water and icemaker. My water works perfectly fine but my ice maker no longer produces ice. It runs but it's not getting any water to make ice. What can be done to fix this?


There are a couple reasons your icemaker will not fill with water.
First thing you want to check for is a frozen fill tube to the icemaker. The easiest way to check for a frozen line is to remove the icemaker. Once the icemaker is removed look for ice in the fill tube. If there is ice in the tube the (water valve) will need to be replaced. You can melt the ice by forcing hot water up the fill tube.
Another reason could be the icemaker is not sending voltage to the water valve. The fix for this issue is to replace the icemaker. Hope this helps you with your whirlpool fridge!

The reason to change the water valve with a frozen water line is because the solenoid is not closing all the way. This allows water to enter the fill tube of the icemaker and freeze based on the temperature.

Icemaker is not making ice cubes. fridge is 3 months old.


Well if your ice cube bucket is on the freezer door it self then it could be anything from the optics system to a bad icemaker to a water valve issue...if its located on the side freezer wall. the water valve could be bad or the i/m module/icemaker

My icemaker will get cold but wont make ice.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Here is what the manual says:


3. Icer-ette freezes but water does not come into mold; no ice production.
_____________________________________________________________

3A. Nonfunctioning water valve assembly. 3A. Clean or replace solenoid valve assembly.

3B. Mold heater assembly. 3B. Contact Raritan Technical Support.

3C. Water supply turned off. 3C. Provide pressurized water.

3D. Icemaker module. 3D. Replace icemaker module.

3E. Cold control. 3E. Replace cold control.
3F. Bad wiring harness plug contacts. 3F. Contact Raritan Technical Support.*

Although this is for troubleshooting non optical sensor refrigerators:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34
The troubleshooting procedures for cycling the unit are exactly the same,
The ice maker module part number for the 120V unit is PN 628366 (do a net search for this part number and save yourslef a bumch of money if you fetermine your moduleis bad) You start the harvest cycle by removing the front cover and then jumpering test points T to H. The white dial will begin to move if there is power to the module. Remove the jumper when the sweep arm reaches 5" o'clock and let the ice maker automatically cycle. It should harvest, and fill in on complete turn of the white dial. If it does not fill you probably have a water supply or water valve problem. There is an inline input power fuse for the ice maker. Power should come in via the red wire.

Mind you the ice maker has an internal thermostat behind the module assy that has to reach 15 deg F to start the harvest cycle. When you jumper T to H you are bypassing the thermostat. If the thermostat fails or the unit does not reach 15 deg F then the harvest cycle will never begin.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Whirlpool ice maker ,no harvest?


Hi, The optics almost never go in those unit's, the problem is in the icemaker module itself. If you can jump it thru a fill and then no advancing thru to harvest afterward ( provided your freezer is below freezing ) it's the module. You can either replace just the head/module or the entire icemaker. For the difference of only about $50 I always replace the complete assembly. The most common one being about $150 complete, # 2198597 and this should be the one for your fridge since you mentioned the optic component's. Hope that help's. Thanks for choosing "fixya" for your fridge inquiry. Please take a moment and rate this solution if indeed it solves your problem. Thanks again and good luck. Macmarkus :)

Ice not ejecting led flashing


Open the freezer door look at flashing led. Now on the left side is a flapper push that in with your hand be sure to keep your hand out of the way of the hole . where the led is now should be solid red. If it isnt then you need new optics. If it is then open the flapper in front of the icemaker at the top of the freezer. You should see the icemaker running width wise in the freezer. You may need a step stool for this next step. The icemaker should have what i call teeth pointing upwards at a 45 degree angle towards you. If these teeth are pointing down in the ice then you need a new module. which is behind the white cover of the icemaker on the left.. Hopefully this helps. Usually the gear head is broken on the module but of course you will have to remove it to find out. Happy hunting

It sounds like you have covered all the primary troubleshooting checks. There is only one thing I can think of at this point.
Check the voltage coming to the water valve during the icemaker cycle. The power to the valve is decreased by the resistence of the icemaker heater from 120 volts down to about 108 volts. It is not uncommon to have a valve that will open when you put 120 volts to it, as you do when you switch solenoids, but not open at the decreased voltage when it goes through the icemaker circuit.
If you are getting voltage to the valve when it cycles, and you know for sure the water line to the icemaker is clear, then you will need to replace the valve.
Post back and let me know what you find.

Ice Maker on/off switch has blinking red light, will not produce ice. Manual no help


When you open the freezer door the light should be blinking. When you hold the flipper door shut (on the left hand side) without blocking the beam, the light should stay on solid. If all of this happens then the optics are o.k. If optics are ok then you most likely have a broken motor module on the icemaker and should replace the icemaker thermostat along with it. A bad icemaker thermostat will lead to the module breaking. If you not sure how to replace these parts then I would just replace the whole icemaker. That would be easiest and usually not much more expensive.

Whirlpool Icemaker not working


Willn2try. On the indoor ice maker the immitter board and receiver board will determine when to send power to the module. This is probably why you are not reading any voltage on your test points. When the thermostat closes, the emitter board sends out a infared pulse. If the path of the pulse is not blocked (like no ice in the bin) it will then send power to the module and start a cycle. Since you stated the optics are good, try testing for your voltage by holding down the left side receiver board, light switch and do not block the beam. You can bypass the thermostat by jump starting the cycle. Place a jumper in T&H, place the IM on a shelf out of the way of the boards. Close the door and unplug the refer for 30 seconds. Plug the refer back in and wait 45 seconds. When you open the door the cycle should be started. Cativer

Hotpoint HSS25GFP icemaker stopped working


are u sure that model # Is right.. DOnt come up in any of my model data bases Seems like u might of got a bad icemaker.. if the water is coming into the icemaker from the water valve.. icemaker has to have power, to do that... all funtions after that would be controled by the iceaker .. The only other thing i can think of is your refrigerator has to be a certain temp to activate icemaker somewhere around 0 give or take some to be safe
