Re: Freezer Not Cold Enough/Ice Maker not working

If that doesn't work make sure the fins are clear of dust and debris. Then you try recharging the freon in the unit. The compressor unit might be getting weak. Most of the time with parts and labor it's cheaper to replace the freezer.

This mentions ref/freezers but goes for both side by sides and just freezers alone:
This can be a tricky problem. There are three things that I can think of that can cause this. First is the defrost timer. To determine if this is the case look in the freezer at the freezer back wall. Is it cover completly with snow like ice? If so the timer is not letting the machine go into defrost. Also you should notice the fresh food part of the machine start to rise in temperature. The next thing is the machines cold control thermostat is faulty and even though the machine maybe cold enough the thermostat can't tell so it never kills power to the compressor. The last is that your machine is low on freon, so the freezer temperature never really gets low enough. Signs of this are decrease in ice maker production, ice cream softer than normal, or put a thermometer in t he freezer. The temperature should be around 0 degrees F and no more that 5 degrees F

We have a Jenn-Air Refrigerator/Freezer (Model #JRSD226) and the ice maker has stopped working.

Check for blockage in the water line in the freezer. If so, defrost it. Might need a new water valve. Maybe a bad ice maker too.
Another possibility is that it's not cold enough in the freezer. Should be below +10F.

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.

How cold is the freezer? Check the condenser coils for cleanliness and clean if necessary. Condenser may be located in the back behind a fiber panel. Ice maker is dependent on temperature and if the freezer is not reaching a low enough temperature it will affect your ice production.
