Ice maker is not making ice. what could be the problem?


The two most common things that happen: the ice piles up too high, which pushes up the bar that tells it the bin is full and stop making ice. OR the ice sticks to the ice cube maker. If the ice pile is too high, knock it down or empty the bin. If the ice is sticking to the cube maker, try melting it and then spraying it with a non stick spray. Sometimes the water supply line is clogged, but that is not usually the problem.

Scotsman Ice machine cme250 pillow ice maker. 500lb bin. Machine is making ice but sheets of it and not the pillows. Is this due to the harvest cycle is to long so the water is running over the ice and...


If it is going into harvest but the ice is to thick causing it to stick and not letting it drop then you need to adjust the ice thickness sensor it dose not need to be no more distance than 1/8 of an inch between face of sensor and evaporator plate you can use a 1/8 drill bit flat between sensor face and ice plate use a 1/4 nut driver to adjust the sensor.

NEED PROCEDURE FOR REMOVING THE ICE MAKER FOR INSPECTION AND TROUBLESHOOTING. FRIG IS NEW...ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE !!!!!


Are you sure you have the ice bin properly in place?

Ice bin must be locked in place for proper ice dispensing. If necessary, turn auger driver behind ice bin counterclockwise to properly align ice bin with auger driver.


• Press the switch ON to activate ice maker. Slide bin into guide rails located on either side of the enclosure. Push the ice bin in until resistance is felt. Raise the front slightly and push the ice bin completely in. An audible "click" is heard when the ice bin is located correctly.


• After freezer section reaches between 0° to 2° F (-18° to -17° C), ice maker fills with water and begins operating. You will have a complete harvest of ice

approximately every hour.

• Allow approximately 3 to 6 hours after installation to receive first harvest of ice.

• Discard ice created within the first 12 hours of operation to verify system is flushed of impurities.

• Stop ice production by pressing the ON/OFF switch located on the front of the ice maker.

• The first one or two batches will probably contain undersized and irregular cubes because of air in the supply line.

• When the ice cubes are ejected it is normal for several cubes to be joined together at the ends. They can easily be broken apart. The ice maker will

continue to make ice until the supply of ice cubes raises the ice maker arm, shutting the ice maker off.

• Certain sounds may accompany the various cycles of the ice maker. The motor may have a slight hum, the cubes will rattle as they fall into an empty storage bin and the water valve may click or "buzz" occasionally.

Manitowoc Ice machine only makes 2/3 bin of Ice and shuts off


The unit shuts off based on the magnetic reed switch in the plastic curtain on the front of the evaporator. If the ice is not falling as one single sheet with about 1/4"-3/8" of a bridge conecting all of the cubes then the ice is too thin. When the ice falls (in a single sheet of ice) if there is enough ice in the bin to hold that ice up and keep the curtain open the unit shuts down. A full bin may only be what appears to be 2/3 or 3/4 of a bin full because the ice sheet is propped up behind the curtain. If the ice sheet is too thin and does not fall as a single sheet more often than not a single cube or a piece of a cube can get caught between the curtain and the evaporator plate. This can shut the unit down for several hours until that piece melts and the curtain closes again.

Ice guide seems to be broken, how can i remove the cover to access on mod. ed22tqxfnoo.. what will it take to replace it ?? t


I have a Whirlpool side-side freezer-refrigerator model ED22TQXFNOO. When I try to use the ice dispenser in the door. nothing happens. No noise as if the motor is turning the spiral gear to push the ice to the end of the storage bin so the ice will drop in the shute to be dispensed. I cleaned out the storage bin for any build up of frozen chucks of ice. The storage bin is all the way in. There's plenty of ice, but it won't dispense.
(1) Is there a Micro switch in the lever I push to signal the motor to turn?
(2) What inergizes the switch in the back that lifts the bar to let the ice fall into the ice dispenser?

Ice maker not pushing out cubed ice makes funny sound also has a chlorine taste even after changing the water filter


The ice cubes may have melted somewhat and are sticking to the bottom of the ice bin.
Take the ice bin out and dump the ice. Wash and DRY the bin. Put it back in and wait for more ice to make,then try your dispenser.
Let us know the outcome.

In door water and ice cube not working


Water dispenser is a simple touch switch in door energizing a solenoid water valve behind ventilation grate above refrigerator. Water tube runs down into and ends at ice dispenser chute. Should hear solenoid click at top of fridge when activate water touch switch. Can unhook discharge side of solenoid valve temporarily to prove water output. If water dispenser tube acts blocked it could be frozen where it ends-look up the hole at the bottom of refrigerator control buttons.
Ice maker is totally different system. No clicking when push ice button but ice in bulk tray may mean the simplest of malfunctions: Ice bin not pushed in the last half inch if ice auger not lined up with drive pegs. There are hidden switches behind ice bin that need to be engaged or nothing will happen in the ice maker: no auger noise, no clicking, no new ice making. Ice bin will be flush with sheet metal if it is in the right spot. Also plastic juice rack won't hang properly if ice bin not pushed in all the way.

Melded mass of ice in bin


The only thing I can offer is to limit the out put of the machine closer to what your needs are.Or bag the ice and store in a freezer. The ice pushing down while melting is what is causing the BIG FREEZE. The bin for storage may be too big for your needs, at least at the time you write this. When the demand goes up (warmer weather) the ice would be used more and the pressure pushing down will alternate as well as people getting scoops out more often this will help prevent such a freeze up in warmer weather.

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.
