Bad water valve, thermostat, freezer not cold enough, make sure the ice maker metal rod is at down position or on back of the ice maker plastic water line is frozen. also depends what year combo you have, there operation is a little different.

Leaks water


I don't know what model you have but if you have the combo unit than check to make sure the drain line for the frig part is not stopped up. if just the ice maker than check the water supply line leaking at solenoid valve inlet side. Tighten or replace fitting, if not there than check water line leaking at solenoid valve outlet side, If so than replace water line and fitting.

Water runs over ice maker but, ice doesn't form


The majority of refrigerators today are equipped with an automatic icemaker. The water valve supplying the icemaker is a key component of the icemaking system, and it should be the first thing you check if the icemaker's performance is erratic or if the icemaker stops working. When the icemaker calls for ice, its switch closes an electrical circuit and energizes the solenoid-operated water valve. This allows water to flow through the valve and into the ice cube tray. The water is frozen into cubes, and the cubes are dumped into the ice bin. As time passes, strange things may happen to the refrigerator's icemaking capability. The cubes may be small or there may be a solid chunk of ice instead of individual cubes. It's also possible that the icemaker will stop working. These are all signs of a malfunctioning water valve. The valve is equipped with a screen on its inlet to remove minerals and sediments in the water supply. Over time, minerals and sediment build up on the screen and restrict flow through the valve, or even block it completely. Minerals that make it through the screen can cause the valve to stick in the open position, overfilling the ice cube tray in the process. This is a common problem in areas with hard water, but it can happen just about anywhere. Another malfunction that will cause the icemaker to stop working is a break in the solenoid coil winding. This is known as an open coil. The coil winding generates a magnetic field as current passes through it, and this magnetic field opens the plunger valve that controls water flow. A break in the coil winding stops current flow and this prevents the valve from operating. Test And Inspect The icemaker's valve is easy to inspect and test. First, gently pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and unplug it. Turn off the water supply to the icemaker by closing the shut-off valve in the copper waterline leading to the valve (Fig. 1). Use a screwdriver or nutdriver to remove the rear lower access panel from the refrigerator's back. Next, remove the fill tubing from the water valve. Use a wrench to loosen the flare nut on the brass fitting on the inlet side of the valve (above). Place a container under the valve to catch the small amount of water that will spill from the valve and tubing. Now use a screwdriver or a nutdriver to remove the screw holding the valve's mounting bracket to the refrigerator cabinet (Fig. 2). Pull the valve out of the compartment and remove the tube on the valve's outlet. Then, remove the solenoid's electrical contacts (Fig. 3). 3193_1.gif
3193_2.gif
1-Begin the repair by unplugging the refrigerator and shutting off the water flow to the icemaker. 3193_3.gif
2-The icemaker's water valve is attached to the refrigerator cabinet by means of a bracket. Remove the bracket screws. To test the solenoid valve, use a multimeter (also called a volt-ohm meter). Set the meter to the RX-100 scale. Touch the probes to each terminal on the solenoid coil (Fig. 4). The meter should read in the range of 200 to 500 ohms. If the meter needle does not move, the coil is bad. You may be able to purchase the coil separately from the valve. If not, you will need to replace the entire valve. An icemaker valve costs about $30 to $50 from the manufacturer or an appliance parts distributor. If the coil tests okay, the inlet filter is probably clogged. To clean the filter, first remove the large brass nut on the inlet side of the valve. Then gently pry the screen out with a small screwdriver. Clean the screen using an old toothbrush (Fig. 5). Rinse the filter clean, reassemble the valve and install it. Before installing the back panel on the refrigerator cabinet, test run the icemaker. Look for leaks, and tighten any leaky connections. If necessary, use Teflon tape or a similar product to ensure tight connections. Discard the first ice cubes that are produced because they are likely to have sediment in them. 3193_4.gif
3-Two wires supply power to the valve. Gently disconnect the wires to test the solenoid coil's resistance. 3193_5.gif
4-The multimeter will read 200 to 500 ohms if the coil is good. If the meter's needle does not move, the coil is open. 3193_6.gif
5-If the solenoid coil is not malfunctioning, disassemble the valve and gently clean its inlet screen using an old toothbrush.

Jenn-Air JCD2389GES problems


The condensor fan cools the condensor coils. If it is running this will cause a no cool situation. Also, if the condensor coils are plugged with dirt that insulates the coils and causes a no cool situation. These things will make it so the freezer isn't cold enough to freeze water so the icemaker will not produce ice. As far as the door edges getting hot. A condensor line runs thru the cabinet between the doors and this is called the mullion. If it is too hot this is a good indication of a bad condensor motor or dirty coils. Clean the coils and check the status of the fan motor and let me know what you find and we will see if we need to go further.

The ice maker


see this causes and fix it. God bless you

Makes to much ice or won't shut off.

Check shutoff arm. This may be hung up on ice or food item.

Makes no ice.

Check shutoff arm. Check to make sure it is getting water, check water solenoid. Check water supply line it may be frozen or plugged up. Check freezer temperature to low of a temperature could cause the line to freeze up. Check for power at motor. You will need to remove the ice maker. Find the leads that go to the auger and connect a voltmeter. Press the dispenser lever you should have power if not replace the control board or micro switch. Check control switch or microswitch. Put icemaker in test mode. Only some are equipped.

Ice cubes to large or small.

Adjust size by removing cover and turn adjustment screw + or -. Check water solenoid. Check water supply line. Make sure it is level.

Ice tastes bad

Clean ice tray. Check supply line. Check water solenoid. Change filter. Run at least a 3 gallons of water thru the line after replacing filter this will flush all old water.

Ice is discolored.

Check water solenoid. Check supply line. Change filter. Clean ice tray. Run at least a 3 gallons of water thru the line after replacing filter this will flush all old water.

Most ice maker problems require either replacing the ice maker unit or the ice dispenser control board or micro switches.

Icing up of unit


When you clean the Ac unit, Make sure to take the Unit completly out and clean both the condensor coil as well as the Evaporator coil.
If you are able to run the unit with it out of the window. See if there are any service ports connected to the unit (Guage hook ups), or any OIL spots where is looks dark, (Checking to see) if its leaking.

Wasnt sure how you cleaned the unit, So just make sure both coils are cleaned well with water, and make sure to avoid getting to much water into the Electronics.
Good Luck!

No accumulation of ice


Check to see if your condensor coil is clean, use an air compressor or other source to blow thourgh the coil,dont just brush it off. newer refrigerant charged systems need as much air flow as possible to work ,also make sure the cover is on the condensor section while the ubit is in nrmal operation. try setting the cube size to lowest setting and let run for 24 hrs. Let me know if you need further assistance.

CLR2060 Clear Ice Maker Won't Freeze


Water is not supposed to run all the time. Maybe you have a problem with your solenoid or the circuit that shuts your water. Sometimes solenoid just needs cleaning.
