I think you have a defrost problem. Look at the inside lower back panel of your freezer. If I'm correct, you will see ice built up. You can take the panel out, defrost with a blow dryer. (After defrosting you can check your heaters. I'm sure you have a bad heater) You can put panel back in and turn the unit back on. It will run ok for around 3 days, This will give you time to repair or get repaired without loosing you food.

    I meant to add. There is nothing wrong with you ice maker. It's doing just what it's designed to do. The reason the ice maker stopped is because it has a thermostat inside it. This cuts it off when it's not cold enough so the it will not cycle over and over and the water does not continue to fill each time. It it did, it would end up flooding your freezer. Good luck

Most likely your defrost timer is defective. Located inside the fresh food section and inside a metal box behind the control panel. Turn the timer slowly clockwise until compressor stops. Wait 30 minutes or until compressor restarts If the compressor does not restart turn again until it starts during this time the freezer should be in defrost and sounds of crackling or sizzling is normal.

SOURCE: The freezer is warming, ice maker is not working.

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Ice on the food


why did you stop the ice maker? was it not working properly? was it over flowing or leaking? do you have a sheet of ice forming in the ice maker tray? if your ice maker was leaking then your water valve is not shutting off completely and could be leaking down on the food. if this is the case - you need to shut the water line off coming into the refrigerator and replace your water valve.

if it is frost that is forming on your food instead of ice then you should check to see if the refrigerator is defrosting properly. if the refrigerator is not defrosting properly you would also first notice that the refrigerator is not cold enough and then later that the food in the freezer eventually thawing.

Turned ice maker off prior to a ten day vacation. Upon return, it would make thin shelled ice cubes and finally stopped altogether. Could the water line be frozen How does one de-ice?


Fastest way is to remove the ice maker tray so that you have an open area where the ice maker filling tube is, then cover your food with a towel or something to help prevent it from thawing while you let refrigerator defrost for about 20 to 30 minutes with a hair drier on warm or a small fan blowing directly on ice maker where the water fill tube or opening is. I does not need to be right next to the ice maker just an unrestricted open area to let it warm sufficiently to thaw it out without thawing out your food in the freezer. A small piece of ice can stop the valve from opening and this can happen if it is not used regularly.

Ice maker hasn't worked in years. A couple of days ago food below the ice maker was thawed. Today I felt that the ice maker was hot to the touch. Is there anyway to disengage the power to the ice make


Yes you will need to take the screws that mount the Ice maker to the side of the freezer and unplug the cable plug that is hidden behind the back of ice maker. The only time that element is needed to become hot is the moments before the ice maker drops ice. Thanks, Sea Breeze
