Re: Everstar Ice naker

I have the Everstar HDIM35B and have replaced the water pump within the last 4 months and it was working like a charm, but after a recent storm, it stopped making ice. When I shut it off and turn it back on, it will only make about 3 batches of ice before it stops making ice. It will continue to go through the proper cycles, but for some reason the water never kicks back on when the ice making cycle starts. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! Bob (

Re: Everstar Ice naker

The Everstar Undercounter Ice Maker was sold by The Home Depot for awhile. That is were I got mine. I have ordered parts for the maker from the Home Depot Parts Department. My unit is the Everstar HDIM35A. Franklin Industries also made the same unit. It is a Franklin Chef FIM35. Sears has parts for that one and it seems to be the same unit. I found that The Home Depot parts department seems to be the most economical place to get the parts. I have manuals for both the Franklin and the Everstar if you need a copy.

How to fix the motor module on the icemaker

I suggest that you DO NOT try to "fix" the motor module on an ice maker, it is simpler and in the long-run - much cheaper to replace the entire ice maker.
Be aware that many new refrigerators use the ice maker timing of the ice maker to control the defrost cycle of the refrigerator and messing up with the I/M internal parts may cause you some consequential damage.

Ice maker will not quit making ice

Repairing this is pretty easy once you know how ice makers work. Just remember there are thousands of different models of refrigerators and it will always be a good idea to write your model number and brand name somewhere because that will be the first thing the repair parts vendor will ask for. On refrigerators most times will be around the inside door frame of the fresh food compartment. Then you will have the Kenmore Brand model numbers that look like this 790.99012 Most of that information can be found on this page Locating the Number's enough about that part an ice maker unfortunately has about a five year life span and most whirlpool brand have repair parts but by the time you add the parts and time you could have already bought a new ice maker. This of course is not to say your ice maker is at fault here. If you have no ice or shrinking ice in the ice slots of your refrigerator fill with tap water and make sure ice maker is turned on. Once the water in the ice maker (if ice maker is good) freezes it should drop into ice bin. If water does not refill thist points to the dual water control valve located on back and near floor. Below is a video that I find very informing weather you have a Whirlpool or another brand. If video does not appear below then click here=> Broken Ice Make Repairs Most people say if they have water in fountain that they should also have ice but the fact is the dual water control is called that because one side fill the ice maker while the other controls the water dispenser. If to have a multi-meter and would like to test please let me know. With wiring disconnected from the water control valves you have a coil that acts as a magnet to pull a metal plunger open when ice maker calls for water and the coil for the dispenser side both should read from 150 to 250 ohms. at the terminals coming out of them. If not then they should be replace with a complete new water control valve. If you have questions or need more answers please let me know, Thank you Sea Breeze.

Ice maker not making ice

Hello there:
There's no ice If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order: 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: bullet.jpg If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. bullet.jpg If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. bullet.jpg 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. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. 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. Please try these and see if it helps if not let me know and i will do my best to further assist you ok?

Ice Maker Dead

Yes maybe, but we can try to see if it is the ice maker alone is the problem. Try filling with water and let freeze while turned on. If ice maker dumps ice into ice bin then the reason would most likely be the water control valve. The problem with these ice makers are that they are electronic and have no replacable parts. What ever you find please let me know. The part number for the ice maker is Click Here=> WR30X10093 If the ice maker test works then the water valve should open but don't the replacement water control valve is Click Here=> WR57X10032 Please rate my solution after I have helped you resolve the problem and communicate with me.

Manitowoc 210 ice maker

The thickness control (Im not sure if its like the bigger models) isa plastic piece that has 1 or 2 metal prongs that as the ise is frozen to the evap plate the water trickels closer to these probes. eventually commin gin to contact with the probe and allowing the board to "see" that the ise is ready for harvest. Perhaps this is set too close?

Or the machine may need a good cleaning. DO NOT USE LIMEAWAY on manitowoc. It has a nickle coating on the evap plate and the cleaner has to have inhibitors in it to keep the nickle plating from flaking off.

From your genmeral information these are a general idea of the 1st 2 things that can cause your problem.

Please ratem me as high as you can and let me know if you have tried anything and the results or if you have more information to add.

The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

Hello jitkagardner,

You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

How old is the fridge?
When have you last changed the water filter.
Should be down below at the front grille!
Try these tasks!

If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice
Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
• Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
• Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
• New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
• Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer
compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not
close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely."
• Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
• Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
• Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and
operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may
be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it
• Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.

Let me know how it goes!
Please remember to leave a rating!

Ice maker

Hello Carol34,
I'd like to help you but you will first have to provide some additonal information. First off, did it ever work? Not sure what you mean when you refer to the 'part that goes down to release ice just stays down".. are you referring to the arm that shuts off ice making when the bucket is full? Please provide this information so that we can get your ice working again..
