Ice maker is over rotating the forks

The forks keep rotating to far while the water is not frozen and by the time they get down in the water they get stuck. Is there any way of adjusting their rotation or setting?

Re: Ice maker is over rotating the forks

No, there is not a way to adjust the harvest cycle of an ice maker. Ya got to buy a new one. They cost anywhere between 50-100 bucks. GOODLUCK!

Ice maker not getting water on new refrigerator

Check if the unit has a cold water dispenser that it will fill a cup. If so than problem is with Ice Maker. If not than problem is with water supply to unit.
If water to machine works make sure that the arm on the ice maker is in the down position. If it is up it will disable the ice making unit. Cycle the am a few times to insure that the switch connected to the arm has not gotten stuck in the off position.

On some ice makers there is a separate switch to disable the Ice maker usually right on the ice-maker not easily missed.

It is possible that the water feed tube into the Ice Maker has become frozen where it enters into the back of the freezer at the top. You can look through to see where the water fills into the cube tray. If ice is present it would be an indication that the feed tube has become frozen If suspected the safest way to fix would be to turn off the unit and allow for a manual defrost.

Next check the operation of the ice maker. Locate the arm in the up position prohibiting the ice maker from cycling. Wait three hours or more. Open freezer door and return the arm into the down position. After a few minutes you should observe the ice fingers rotating to release the cubes into the tray. If the fingers do not rotate I would suspect the ice maker or the connecting electrical circuit. Remember after dropping the arm the Ice Maker has to warm up to melt the ice cubes from the tray before the fingers are told to rotate,

If the fingers rotate then I would expect that the water supply solenoid has failed inside of the unit near to the location the the water supply is made. Replacing this part needs to be done by a qualified experienced technician.

There isnt any water getting thru to the icemaker. i changed the watervalve and still no water i cannot locate the water filter even tho i removed the bottom grill, water is still getting to the water...

if you put a new water valve on the fridge then you either have a bad ice maker or the line is frozen where the water fills the ice maker,a bad water valve will make the line freeze,water keeps dripping through the valve and freezes the fill line behind the ice maker cup,you can remove the ice maker and check the fill line,if it's frozen get a hair dryer,shut down the fridge or unplug it and blow the hot air into the fill line until the ice melts,then get a piece of wire and after you reinstall the ice maker pop off the cover to the ice maker and jump it out with the wire,stick it in the t and h for 15 seconds and pull it out,if the ice maker is good it will start turning and when the arms get at like 11 oclock it should fill,also you can jump out the fill valve from the ice maker,stick it in v and L and if water fills the ice maker you know you have a bad ice maker if the fill line isn't frozen.hope this time you need help send the model number,on your machine look in the fridge section on the right hand wall up near the ceiling to find it,if it's older look down near the bottom hinge on the fridge door and you'll see a tag with the model number.good luck

Icemaker not working, the water despencer is ok, so i know there is water coming in ,it is in on position, no ice is stuck,what do i look for? next move

When the ice is frozen hard the ice maker has a heater that activates so the ice can be released, the a rotating mechanism rotates to push the ice out of the ice maker. Then cycle starts again by dispensing water in the tray. A lot of times the ice maker itself is defective and must be replaced. They are just attached by two screws and plugs into the freezer plug.

Ice maker will not make ice. Red light blinks

I have a kitchenaid with the same problem. Red light blinks twice when open is normal. Hold the flap down and the red light will be on.= normal= optics are working. If the ice rakes rotate, module is probably fine. Check the simplest solutions first, defrost the freezer in case the icemaker water nozzel might be frozen. That solved my problem. I then increased my freezer temp by a couple of degrees and so far, no problems.
Good luck.

Ice maker not dispensing ice

If the dispensor light switches to cubed or crushed , the panel is good . Remove the ice bin , and hold the light switch in . Press the arm for CRUSHED ice , and if you hear a buzzing or hum , then the auger motor is frozen . Use a hair dryer directly on the " forks " for a while , ocasionally holding switch and activating arm , until the forks move . Lower the freezer temp slightly and reinstall the ice bin .

No water to the Ice Maker

sorry to hear that i hope i still can help check the fill tube that fills your ice maker see if it is frozen if it defroated with a hair dryer if there is no frost then you might have a bad water valve you see there are 2 selenoids on valve one for dispenser and the other one for the ice maker so if you don't get water it could be the valve look at the ice maker are the forks pointing up or down if they are down then you have a bad module on ice maker that is the front part of it. if they are pointing to 1oclock then check valve and tube

Ice maker not working

Depending on the ice maker style, they typically work off a motor timer. The timer motor rotates to set up the ice making process... starting with letting water into an empty ice mold tray, allowing ample time for that water to freeze and then to rotate that mold so that the cubes fall out into the bin. In conjunction with that process, a small heater is turned on to release the frozen cubes from the tray. The 'ice tray full' lever signals the system to stop making ice so you may want to verify that the lever is down and not causing the ice maker to stop, If that's down then I suggest you monitor the position of the motor gearset underneath an access cover. With power applied, the gears should rotate and cycle thru an ice making process. If it does and ice fails to fall out, your heater may be defective. Hope that helps...

Either you have a bad heating element (soften the ice to eject) or a stripped gear in Ice Maker either way it will have to be replaced by the time you buy the parts and install them you can just replace the ice maker as a unit
