After having changed the filter check if water is flowing into the ice maker. If not, check the solenoid valve(water inlet), which it is responsible for!
Next check if the compressor is coming on after setting the thermostat is set and the door closed. If compressor is running, then check if the radiator(coils/vanes) are getting hot or not. If not, there exists the possibility of leakage of refrigerant gas!. Get it filled and adequately sealed.
If the compressor does not switch on at all(For the icemaker) then the thermostat has malfunctioned. Also check the fuses for the compressor!
Hope these preliminary check helps identify the fault. If any warning light/LED lights up, do post it as a comment...........sodeep

Ice maker doesn't work after changing filter


The filter and the ice maker should not have anything to do with each other unless you raised the wire shut off on the ice maker and did not put it back down after changing the filter.

Amanda side by side wont dump ice. What can I do to fix. Have no money


Hello zinnas - If your refrigerator has completely stop making ice, try checking the following:

· It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.



· Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.




· When was the last time the filter was changed? Most side-by-side filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!



· Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

If any of these suggestions prove to be infective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.

Do i need to change the filter in order to get the ice maker to work? the water still come out but not into the ice maker. please help!


no you donot need to change the filter first. all of the water goes through the filter first. you either have a bad water valve for the ice maker. a bad ice maker. or bad optics that sense the ice bin on the door is full. can you move the ejector blades on the ice maker? that will tell you if the ice maker gear is broken.
