Replace the ice cube maker. The thermostat and or the motor has gone bad. They are not replaceable parts.

Ice maker stop taking water Kenmore


check plastic tube that runs from rear of the freezer. See if it is pluged with ice. If you find it is change the fill valve at the back of freezer behind the compressor cover. It could be a double valve, as one part.

My ice maker makes a lot of noise at night I wake hearing it making ice droping sounds. I don't use a lot of ice can I turn the infrared receiving switch to off?


The noise is probably ice dropping into the pan and the normal ice maker and water valve sounds associated with making ice. Most Whirlpool models have a slide cover to "turn off" the ice maker - closing this cover fools the control into thinking the bin is full. Your owner's manual should provide greater detail on this option.

Whirlpool side by side...part 2304353 fell off the ice maker and cant figure out how to put back on


The part that fell off, hangs on the wire < shutoff arm > that is above the ice cube pan. This wil stop the ice maker from making ice when the pan is full.

I have water leaking in the freeer apparently down the back wall and pools on floor to form ice. Water has also accumulates under freezer on hard wood floor but not all the time. Model MSD27326R There is...


Water coming from the back of the refrigerator usually comes from either the ice maker water valve or line (if there is an ice maker), or from the defrost drain pan.

Here's what to do:
  • If the water is coming from the ice maker water valve, check to make sure the water tubes are attached properly and are fastened tightly.
  • If the water seems to be coming from any part of the valve itself, replace the valve.
  • If the water appears to be coming from the defrost drain pan, inspect for holes or cracks, and replace the pan if necessary.

Ice maker is not making ice and water leaks from bottom.


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Ice Maker
Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Ice maker does not extract ice cube's to the pan


Take a short piece of #14 insulated wire and strip both ends about 1 inch. Bend the wire into a "U" shape. Insert the stripped ends into terminals "T" and "H" inside the ice maker cover. The gear should start to move. After the gear has moved 1/4 turn,remove the jumper wire.If the heater and thermostat are good it will drop ice and refill. If not it will stall.
If the motor does not move at all or the motor stalls, replace the ice maker.

Crosley side by side ice maker makes to much ice !!!!!!


Most ice makers have a wire bar that senses when the ice bucket is full. The bar lifts up when new ice is made. The ice maker determines if the ice bucket is full by lowering the bar back down after the ice drops into the bucket. If the bar hits the ice cubes in a full bucket, the ice maker shuts off. If the bar drops all the way and dosen't touch ice cube, the ice maker continues making ice until the bucket is full.

So you likely have one of the following problems:
1) The wire bar is missing or bent. Check to make sure that when the bar is pushed up, the ice maker stops making ice. Most bars will 'click' into the up position so you can shut the ice maker off. Push the bar up until it clicks into the up position and wait overnight to see if it makes more ice. If there is no wire bar over the ice bucket, that is your problem.

2) The switch the wire bar is connected to is malfunctioning. If you push the wire bar up and the ice maker continues to make ice, this is likely your problem. You will need a new ice maker unit. Try Appliance Parts Pros or EBay for a new unit.

Drain pan underneath fridge is filling on a daily basis


The system is designed to evaporate that water using the warmth of the compressor.. is your compressor warm ? (the drip tray sits on top of it) I see that model has an Ic e maker... to check that the ice maker refill is not running on too long, switch off the ice maker, by lifting the wire arm that checks the level of the ice in the storage bucket.. leave it turned off for a day or two.. empty the drain pan, and check it again after 24 hours.. but if the ice is already full, the water problem may APPEAR to be resolved already, but will return when the level drops and the ice production begins again.
If it is just condensate, then the drain pan should be able to contain the amount it produces, but 3-days straight, would indicate to me, that is not that... if your water pressure is good, it may be that the ice tray filler solenoid is being held open a fraction too long (maybe a second or so) and as the fridge is new, it will be making lots of ice to fill the container up,... so lots of small overfills.. mounting up to a full drain pan. Under normal use,.. other than parties and festive nights, when you use a lot, the water should evaporate faster than it is produced, but it shouldn't be happening at all.. if it is that, then turn the tap at the back of the fridge to where the cold water dispenser slows down slightly.. that should be enough to prevent it continuing.. IF that's the problem.
