    A lot of these have a small control board that sends voltage to the fan motor. Make sure there is voltage to the motor.

SOURCE: ice machine isn't working

Two things come to mind.

First, the water valve at the bottom rear of the refrigerator may have failed. You didn't mention if there is a water dispenser and whether or not this is still working. This valve pumps water to the icemaker and water dispenser when the control unit of the icemaker calls for water. Also, there could be a blockage in the line which brings the water to the icemaker.

The other possibility is that the part of the icemaker controls which calls for water from the valve has failed. If this has happened, it would likely be more cost effective to replace the icemaker unit.

This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.

The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.

You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.

You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.

The fan or the control is bad.

Ice maker just stopped making ice. had no problem up to a complete stop


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

First off make sure the water in door still works. If it does not work suspect the door / light switch.
Next make sure the freezer temp is below 16 Deg F. The ice maker has a thermostat that starts the ice harvest / fill cycle and if the freezer is warming up because of automatic defrosting problems (Ice build up on the evaporator coils) the ice maker will never cycle. If you note an ice build up in the back of the freezer compartment or poor air flow from the evaporator fan you have an automatic defrosting problem. If the fan is not running at full speed the bearings or windings on the evaporator fan are failing and there is not enough air flow to get the freezer to @ or Below 16 F.

Check to make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer and the condenser fan in the rear bottom of the unit are running un-obstructed. (clean as necessary.... but if the front of the cabinet is hot to the touch then the condenser coils my be clogged with lint or... the condenser fan is not running full speed.

The ice maker may be cycling but it may not be filling with water. If it is cycling but your not getting any water.... at all the prime suspect is the solenoid on the inlet water valve. The water valve is not repairable.

Make sure that the rubber fill tube on the back of ice maker is not blocked with ice... squeeze the end of the tube. If it is frozen with ice... the inlet water valve is bypassing water off cycle and causing the tube to freeze up. The only remedy for this is to replace the inlet water valve.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Water leak on back wall of my freezer and a hell of noise from my icemaker when on


Water leak and noise are due to wrong temp setting or malfunction of defrost cycking.Keep temp setting between 3 and 5 degree centigrade. Due to over frosting, the freezer fan fan hits over the ice and working to cool fridge compartment.And also check defrost timer, and heaterworking properly to defrost in time. And if your ice maker is making sound, due to:
  • You will hear a buzzing sound when the water valve opens to fill the water reservoir for each cycle.
  • Rattling noises may come from the flow of the refrigerant or water line. Items stored on top of the ice maker can also make noises.
  • The high-efficiency compressor may make a pulsating or high-pitched sound.
  • Water running over the evaporator plate may make a splashing sound.
  • Water running from the evaporator plate to the water reservoir may make a splashing sound.
  • As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your ice maker.
  • You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.
  • During the harvest cycle, you may hear a "thud" when the ice sheet slides from the evaporator onto the cutter grid.
  • When you first start the ice maker, you may hear water running continuously. The ice maker is programmed to run a rinse cycle before it begins to make ice.
Hope, it's helpful>

6 beeps on km500mah ice machine. Starts to fill unit and when it switches to compressor mode, the system stops and 6 beeps.


Hi, this is one of the largest ice machines that Hoshizaki make, with the remote air cooled condenser on the roof. As far as the code of 6 beeps, and the compressor starts and stops, you should have a error chart on one of the panels that tells you what the 6 beeps means, a dirty condenser up top that is shutting the unit off on high head or what. You need to find this code error chart, and it will direct you to the point of the problem. I have the service hand book buried in mt service van, so that's not much help.Try and check the remote condenser for a dirty coil, as the is is where you condenser fans and coil are located. It may lust need to be serviced If you have access to nickel safe ice machine cleaner and the unit has not been cleaned in awhile, this I find to be about 80% of problems with these machines. You can by a gallon at a appliance parts house or a/c parts house to clean it up. Some you will nee to do by hand, as they get slimmed up really bad and thing quit working. If you are not tied into a water softener , this is really hard on the machine. Try and look at the fans and coil up top and get the nickel safe flip the switch to the cleaning cycle, and start cleaning. This should take care of that problem. Please rate me , and be kind as I know you will and I will be here to help you. Use my user name below.

My ice machine does not make enough ice


Check the water filters first. Then check the condenser coils for dust and dirt. Determine which way the air goes thru the condenser coils and check on the side the air goes into. There are coil cleaning sprays that work good. If it is still slow, it may need gas. That will require a service call from a technician.

Have an LG LFX25960TT refrigerator with in door ice maker. The ice maker only makes 2 to 3 ice cubes at a time. (Too slow for my family's needs.) It appears like it doesn't get enough time to fill. Is...


Check to make sure the water supply to the refrig is good and the inlet screen where the water line connects to the refrig is clean. You can change the amount of water fill by pressing the button on the left side of the ice maker. (indicator lights above button show setting) Selecting "Ice Plus" on front of dispenser panel increases ice production for a 24 hour period. Ice maker should produce 6 cubes per cycle, aprox.. 100 to 130 cubes in 24 hours depending on freezer compartment temp, room temp, number of door openings, etc.
