Having trouble installing


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble installing the ice maker kit, part# IM501. I see that you are curious if there is an extension for the water inlet tube. There is no extension. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to better assist in installing the ice maker kit for you. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Franklin chef ice maker fim70 finished running cleaning cycle. have cleaned plugs, lines, on rear and sprayer inside bin. water continues to run, ice forms on top (w/ frost). Ice never drops.


Hello

Ice may jam up in an ice dam and close off the chute. Shove the ice scoop up into the chute with a fair amount of force to break up the ice dam. Chunks of ice should fall into the bin, followed by a shower of ice cubes.

Ice maker will only cycle once then it goes to off position . It stop working due to ice build up in supply tube. I removed the ice maker and ran hot water over unit to clear out the ice that was lodged in...


That bar your talking about goes to the full up position just before the end of the harvest cycle then falls right at the end of the cycle. But on a good day it barely drops. Characteristic of that ice maker.
If you ran water over the ice maker try these 2 things.
1. Remove the ice maker and leave it on the counter for about 2 days to completely dry out. Then re-install and try again.
2. If no luck, hang a small weight to the middle of the wire to see if it will drop on it's own.
3. If no luck, you'll have to replace the ice maker. However,
if your commited to buying a new ice maker, first snap off the front cover and look for interference where the wire goes into the ice maker. You can actually remove the whole solid state front end by removing the 3 screws that hold it on and make a more detailed check.
P.S. pull the wire out of the ice maker before this last step. It simply pulls out.

Dometic model ndr1292.my water tube for ice maker is falling apart.how do i replace it?


it depends on whether you can get to the back of refrig from the out side. if you are lucky enough to have 2 access panels behind the refrig you are able to do it without removing refrig. i just replaced mine. i bought an ice maker kit at home depot and just used the hose and fittings cutting the hose to size. if you are in cold weather i would recommend using the heater wires that are wrapped arount the old tube. they keep the water from freezing. hope this helps.

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.

Ice maker will not stop making ice. It keeps on coming after the bar is raised. What will fix it ?


can you raise the bar and detent it it into the off position? Will it stay there? Does the unit continue to make ice even when the bar is in the off position? If it does then there is something wrong with the icemaker. Also, you may want to check that the bar is in the proper location, meaning that the bar is inserted in the head assembly and the other end is supported if that is the type you have.

Ice maker not shutting off


The icemaker should have a bar that is normally in the downward position (ie 4'Oclock) when the bin is not full. The ice falls into the collector and pushes that bar into a horizontal position (ie 3'OClock). These instructions are normally on the ice dispenser section. If the bar is not being pushed up then the icemaker does not know to stop. My only suggestion would be to empty completely the ice maker bin and check that the bar can be pushed from one position to the other. If this happens then try turning on again. I hope this is of some if not much help and good luck.
