I just fixed one of these. I had to take the motor the drives the shovel off the unit and fabricate the pin that goes through the motor shaft. The original pin that goes through the motor shaft obviously wasn't made of stainless steel or aluminum and it rusted away. Take a look at yours and see if the shaft pin is missing. You will need to take the back panels off, there are 6 screws on the bottom of the unit, and two silver screws on the large back panel. Take those off and you will expose the refrigeration unit. Take the screws out that hold the lid on and place them with the others. These will be about an eighth of an inch longer than the ones that came out of the bottom. You will then need to unplug the motor from the two wires, one is red, one is white. Take the two screws that hold the motor on and then remove to motor. The shaft pin is perpendicular to the plane of the motor shaft. If it's not there, your going to have your work cut out for you as the remnants of the original pin is probably rusted solid to the motor shaft. Drill this out if you can't knock it out. I made the new pin out of a stainless steel screw that I ground the threads off of. I then super-glued the new shat pin into the shaft after I cut it to length.

Reset the ice maker back to making ice again


Turn the water supply off to the fridge, make sure the bailer wire (ice level bar) is in the down position. let the Ice maker run thru its cycle. When the cycle is complete the fingers that push out the cubes should all be down. Unplug the fridge for about 5 min. During this time turn the water supply back on. Plug the fridge back in and let it run thru a few cycles. This should reset the icemaker cycle. As a note: you should be able to hear the water turn on with a solid thump as the valve opens to fill the cube trays inside the icemaker.

My Ice maker doesn't make ice anymore


90% of ice maker problems are water related. Sounds like water may be continually seeping in from the inlet water valve (normal thing to do if the water level is low). This will not allow the water to get down to freezing temperature. You have to identify the reason that water is constantly running in. It's probably "leaking" out at the dump valve. Or does that unit have a float valve that may be leaking. Check your drain to see if water is leaking out during the freeze cycle.

I have a ge side by side both the freezer and fridge will not cool off, we hear the fan but nothing happening


Hi,
Follow the steps mentioned below to solve the problem:
First remove the ice bin and look inside the mold of the ice maker to see if it is full of ice. If the ice sensing arm is down ( on position) and the ice maker is full of ice, there is a failure inside the ice maker and the ice maker should be replaced.
If there is no ice in the ice maker, look at the fill tube on the rear of the ice maker. If the fill tube is frozen up the ice maker can't fill.
You can defrost the fill tube with a hair dryer.
The water valve on the rear of the refrigerator supplies water to the water dispenser and the ice maker. Since the water dispenser is working, the only line that could be blocked runs up the back of the cabinet and attaches to the fill tube for the ice maker. The water valve could be bad and not sending water to the ice maker.
If the fill tube freezes again you should replace the water valve.
Hope this helps.

My undercounter Whirlpool ice maker is not putting water in the bin on a consistent basis. It causes the pump to run dry. I am trying to determine if I need to replace the computer board or the water...


when you first turn the machine on it will go through 2 fill cycles. turn the machine off, and drain the water reservoir. when you turn the machine back on the first fill cycle should fill the reservoir and over flow a little bit. If it does not overflow then you are not getting enough water (change the fill valve). If it does overflow on the first fill cycle, the the machine probably needs acid cleaned. the instructions on acid cleaning are usually on the door. I don't believe the computer board would be your problem here. Hope this helps, CLINT

After 2yrs of not using the icemaker, moved


Good day,
Pour water from small paper cup until it near fills the well of the ice maker. With the lever down, close freezer door and wait 2 to 3 hours. If it dumps then the ice maker should be good, if not, replace ice maker.
If dumps O.K. then the dual water valve is bad, and needs replaced.
You should check the fill tube that runs from the back of the machine to see if it is blocked with ice. (requires removing ice maker) but even so, if it is iced, you'll need to clear, but the water valve in the back rear of the machine is leaking and still needs replaced.

My Kenmore S106 626636 Ice Maker is not producding ice.


You probably have the back side of the I/M hitting the fill tube and pushing the white cup at the end of the I/M in some, which would put pressure on the arm and not let the arm fall down free during a cycle.

Water runs, but no ice being made.


check if the fan near the condenser is still running.
check also the lever if it is in the down position. if it is in the up position, that means you turn off the ice maker.
check if there is frost on the freezer, if it is cooling very well.

keep me posted,

No water coming into machine. Programme not running because the machine is still trying to fill. If I add water the machine does drain. Was cleaned with a good dishwasher cleaner only last week. Nothing to...


Turns out that the dishwasher had a leak in the bottom. No water could be seen leaking out because Bosch machines have a cut-off valve that means if a tray in the bottom of the machine fills up with water, the float valve doesn't allow anymore water into the machine. we worked this out after we tipped the machine slightly, water ran out, when we put it back down and started it the inlet valve worked until the bottom had filled with water again.

New machine for us! However, not a critism of Bosch. We use our machine at least two or three times a day and have done for the last 5 years.

Faulty ice maker


Hello. Yes, that is the correct position for the icemaker feeler arm. The updated icemaker has a longer feeler arm that hangs down a little more (thereby shutting off sooner when the ice piles up not so high).

Your water leak onto your food is from water spilling out of the front left corner of the ice tray during fill. This has also been updated with a plastic lip that keeps the water from sloshing out when filling up.

The photo shows that your ice tray appears to be unlevel and drooping in the front left corner. This happens with flex tray icemakers over time. The icetray does not fully flex back to its level posiiton. I do not feel you need to replace the entire icemaker. Repalcing just the ice tray should fix your issue.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.
