    Check water supply and if there is a water filter, check that.

Water does not come from the water dispenser and won't make ice and when I checked in the back I saw water halfway in the clear tube that goes into the refrigerator.....


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Since you did not include your model number I have to respond in GENERIC terms. Open the freezer door and locate the light switch. Depress the light switch to make sure that the light is going off when the freezer door is closed. This light switch (with plunger) also turns off power to the water in door and the ice maker when the door is open. If the light stays on with the switch depressed it will not make ice or pass water through the door. The switch is removed by sliding a putty knife or thin knife blade on on side of the switch to release the locking tab. The switch will have 3 wires on it. C = (common / power) NC = ice maker and NC = light. There will only be continuity between C and either NO or NC depending on the plunger / actuator position. It will never read between all 3 contacts at the same time but C will always be one of the 2 test points. A replacement light / door switch is less than $10.00.

If you want more specific information or need further troubleshooting assistance after checking the door switch, please respond with your model number and I will gladly help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Ice maker is not working


check that the ice maker arm is not in the up position or has come dislogded. if the metal wire is dislodged use a mirror to help put back in the ice maker. put it back in the round white area with an elongated slot. flip down if off. check the ice maker to see if an ice cube got hung up and is jamming it. check with eyes and fingers. last the ice maker will not cycle if the door switch is not activated. this check requires you turn off the ice maker with the arm. come back in 6 hours put the arm back down and hold door switch and see if it starts.

Ice maker is not making ice.


Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Ice maker is not making ice


Subzero ice makers arent all cut and dry. You could have an intermittent issue with either the ice maker itself, or the solenoid valve. SZs also often utilize a door switch which prevents the ice maker from operating if the door or the basket which the ice bucket sits in are not closed or in the proper position. If you have had other what would seem minor problems, that you have lived with, they can inadvertently affect different things. Most sub zero ice makers you can start manually by rotating the ejector comb clockwise as you look at the front of the icemaker, when the icemaker completes its cycle, do you get water to the ice maker, and do you get enough water, usually 140-150 ccs. If the ice maker continues rotating on its own after your initial start up, and receives the proper amount of water, either you have a cooling problem, a door or something is not in the correct closed position, you have a bad switch, or the ice maker is bad. If you receive little or no water at end of cycle, you have a bad valve.

Kenmore Ice Maker Not Making Ice


the water that is frozen in the fill tube could have come from the old water valve that you replaced ,you got to get the ice out, the easiest way ,though not the fastest ,is to unplug fridge for 24 hrs . and leave the doors open to let it defrost, the plug back up and hopefully in 5 or 6 hrs you'll have ice

Ice maker on Admiral HMG 62165 side by side


check the lever in the ice bin. if it is stuck in the up position it thinks the ice bin is full and will not make ice. Just wiggle it to the down position.
