    My U-line Ice maker Mod. BCM 45A needs a new ice maker unit, and I can't get the old one out. I've removed the 2 screws holding the top of the ice maker to the inside wall, but the unit still won't come loose so I can remove it.

My BI98 u-line ice machine won't stop making ice even with bin arm up.

I would suspect the switch controlled by the tray full sensing arm/bail. That's kind of like the main power switch for the ice maker. You can remove the outer cover from the ice maker with the power unplugged! Then look at the mechanical operation of that lever as it relates to the switch. The lever should cause the switch to open and shut off the timer motor. Some times you can buy the timer separately otherwise you replace the whole icemaker. Don't forget to remove power and turn off the water before you remove the old icemaker.

Uline bi98 ice maker

follow this test. and fix it. use the multimeter.God bless you

If the ice cubes have watery or hollow centers, the icemaker is getting too little water. Alternately, excess water or ice in the bin is caused by too much water. Turn the water supply screw to adjust. If adjustment does not remedy the problem, you may need to service the water inlet valve (see below).
If you suspect trouble with the motor or switcy in an icemaker, use a multimeter to test the component. If the motor or switches test faulty, replace either the bad components or the entire module. If not, you may only need to replace the thermostat (see below)

No water flowing into the icemaker. The water is going into the cold water on the door. However, when I take the line off for the icemaker... no water comes out. I see that there are 3 connection for the...

The line to the icemaker won't have water coming out until the icemaker cycles and energizes the solenoid valve. check the inlet tube where it goes into the icemaker. sometimes this freezes shut. you can also check the continuity of the icemaker solenoid.

How to replace alumalastic in u-line icemaker

Not all U-lines have alumalastic under their icemaker. What model do you have? Alumalastic will come with the icemaker with directions on how to put it on. It's a caulking material that is spread under the icemaker to cover the heater and sensor tube. If you remove your icemaker you should see it if it needs it.

I have an old U-line ice maker. I can not find

The mechanical parts of those models is the same as a BI 95 or BI98. If your looking for the faceplate that would be part number 150. This includes the timer motor,gears,water switch, and hold switch. You can order this thru a parts distributor. Appliance Parts Depot or All Brand Parts should be able to help. If you want to replace the complete icemaker assemly that part number is 402

Will not dump tray...stops at 2:00 position, will not advance

Possible cause of this is. 1st the heater is out. 2nd the motor in the icemaker has a dead spot. If heater then the complete icemaker should be replaced. If motor I would replace the faceplate.Part #150 Should be around $55 for part. You can find parts by visiting u-line at and under customer service you will see parts locator.

Whirlpool icemaker

Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

Enter the model number on one of two websites below to get parts and diagrams for your appliance:

U-line BI98 water line leak

Take off the back panel, the water line plugs in from the back. The icemaker has mounting screws, but there's a thermal mastic that kind of glues it to the evaporator. You don;t need to remove the icemaker to change the water line, I would put the screws back in and leave it. Don't force the icemaker from the evaporator, it might damage the evaporator.
