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.
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)
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.
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.
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
sounds like your throttle positioning sensor is not set right so i would undo the two phillips heads that hold it and turn it till the idle doesnt fluctuate should be turned most of the way to the front of the truck. Also check your idle screw that throttle body could be set different.
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 www.u-line.com and under customer service you will see parts locator.
The cyle is stuck in the midway section. Unpluh the water supply to ice maker anf see if it will return to the fitst stage, If not we will need to look into the ice maker to see if one of the contacts is stuck. Is this a new ice maker and desighned for your refrigeratorr? Sea Breeze
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.
