No water to the ice maker

There is water at the water dispenser but no water in the ice maker tray. The whole system was replaced about 1 year ago. the light by the on / off switch is flashing even when you block the sensor (as if the door was closed)

The light (receiver) , should light twice , pause , 2 times , pause , and so on . If you close the left flap (emiter) , the light should go off . This is normal operation for the optics .

Check the black tube (fill tube ) , above the ice maker , to be sure it is not iced inside , blocking water flow . If it is , then the water valve needs to be replaced , due to seeping ( not closing completely ) . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , and the black tube is clear , replace the water valve . If the ice maker does not dump , and the frozen cubes stay in the ice maker , then replace the ice maker . Also , check the coils under the refrig , to make sure they are clean from dust , lint , pet hair , etc .

Ice maker quit working but water dispenser still works,the reservoir to make cubes also empty.can you advise?


If the ice maker tray is empty you may have a water valve failure. usually this unit have a dual valve 1 for the dispenser the other one for the ice maker some time a side fail and the entire solenoid have to be replace. the ice maker can also be bad. an easy way for you to test if ice maker is good is by putting water manually inside the ice maker tray depending on how cold is your frig wait about 2 hrs or less if the ice maker cycles and drop ice then water solenoid is the problem if not then replace ice maker.

Ice Maker fails on occasions to dump ice before water is dispensed


monitor the cycle as it is filling water does it over fill or is there a seepage that continue to drip, it could be the water valve. Also do you hear the tray making noise as it tries to dump the ice "the harvest cycle" try to watch it to see if it is a mechanical gearing problem

My icemaker has stopped receiving water


it sounds like your water valve is bad. you have a double water valve - one side operates the ice maker and the other side operates the water dispenser. the ice maker side of the valve is bad.

you can manually pour a little water in the ice maker ice mold and wait an hour or so - if it dumps the ice then you know for sure that the ice maker is cycling and water is not getting to the ice maker from the water valved

In door ice dispenser does not work but the water dispenser does.


check to make sure there is water or ice in your ice maker tray. If none then problem is usually a water supply issue to the ice maker. Behind the frig are the water supply inlet valves. One is for the water dispenser in the door. THe other is for the ice maker. However when one goes bad they both are replaced as one unit. Also Check position of fingers in ice maker. If not in a vertical position then try to reset the ice maker unit and worse comes to worse, replace it with a new one.

LG LRSC 26923TT Side by Side Refrigerator Problem with ice maker


We have the same problem with the ice cube tray. Repairman said the tray must be replaced every year as continual bending warps it out of shape. Replace every year and your problem is solved.
