I think your talking about the release button on the ice bin that holds the cubes,it may just have moisture (ice)built up in it,you can loosen it up with a hair dryer on low setting, Don't pry on it too hard that bin isn't sold in pieces anew one runs $100 and the hooks that the bin latches into is not a serviceable part at all meaning if you break them they stay that way.if you can't get it out that way the only other thing you can do is turn off the refrigerator let it warm up and thaw out..

SOURCE: ice maker will not dispense the ice

When you press the lever to dispense the ice, there are multiple switches being activated. Chances are, the one that moves the motor to turn out the ice is bad. Or that motor itself is bad.

SOURCE: Automatic Ice Maker making grinding noise and will not release ice

The mold heater on the bottom of the ice maker is shot, that is why the cubes will not release. The grinding is the sweep arm trying to push the frozen cubes out.

Freezer wont make ice cubes


This is not difficult to troubleshoot.
  • When the arm is up the ice maker is off
  • When the bucket is full the arm is up the maker is off.
  • If the ice maker has a on/off button in off the ice maker is off
  • If the ice maker internal heater fails the cubes will not release and the white plastic ejector arms will be rotated CCW and pressing against the ice in the tray, Normal position for ejector arms is vertical.
  • If water solenoid has failed or water supply not available the ice maker will cycle. The ice tray will be empty,(hard to see if ice tray is empty). Check and replace water fill solenoid.
  • If ice in tray and ejector arms vertical several possibilities.
    • Freezer not cold enough to trip thermostat in ice maker to initiate release cycle.
    • Check freezer temperature <10 Fahrenheit thermostat in ice maker failure
    • Ice maker motor failure,
    • Internal ice maker electrical connections rotary switch failure,
    The best way to check the operation is to manually lock the arm up into the off retention position. Wait a minimum of one hour. Open door and release arm down. Observe the operation of the ice maker. Is after a minute or so the ejector arm does not rotate then it is likely the ice maker has failed internally. If the ejector turns and no ice than you can assume either the water supply is off external from the refrigerator or more likely the water solenoid located behind the bottom back cover has failed. It is also possible that the hose that connects the solenoid to the ice maker has frozen right where it enters the freezer just above the ice maker. You should see ice built up at the entrance where the water fills the tray if this has occurred.

Whirlpool ice maker start cycle then stops


The problem is the ice maker, the modular head of the ice maker has broken, hence the clicking sound and the raised arm stuck up. You will need to have an accurate model number and contact a local parts distributor for a new ice maker. It is a simple repair usually only 2-3 screws.

Ice maker problem


Clear the Ice tray by pressing the button under the ice maker. The problem is that the ice is in the first couple of slots is not dumping and the tray tries to fill again and over flows. I pressed the button and cleared the tray of ice (This will tilt the tray and twist it to empty it) that was re-frozen several times without dumping. My ice maker works perfectly after I did the above. I think the problem arises if the door did not close completely. I stopped hanging the dish cloth on the door and on my LG Dish wisher. I hope this helps

Ice Cube maker stops making cubes as they are being made ....


Ice makers use a small heating element to release the ice from the mold tray..sounds like that isn't working and everything else is. Check to make sure all electrical connectors coming from the ice maker are properly seated into their mating connectors. If that doesn't solve your problem, you may be better serevd by just replacing the entire icemaker assembly.. Hope that helps...
