    Not sure. We bought the house and the Frige came with it. Ice maker and water to door had never been hooked up. We hooked up the water line and the water to door worked. Found a switch to ice maker and turned it on but nothing happened. Light on ice maker did not light. Fridge looks like new but believe it is 5 or 6 years old.

    If this was a new ice maker that could happen. But when one sits in freezer and the water was not on and the electronic ice maker could have been left on without you knowing. There are some test points behind the plug in the freezer and on the mother board. Let me know how long the ice maker has been inside freezer and not used. Sea Breeze

    My icemaker stop working but the water dispenser still working I check both water lines from the filter its ok but can't check the freezer line by icemaker. turly don't know why the water will not flow...

    If there is no ice in the ice mold of the ice maker, you can pour enough water in to make cubes, wait an hour or so for the icemaker to cycle.( freeze and dump the ice). If it does, then your water valve on the back of the refrigerator that the main water line hooks up to is bad. Replace it. The valve has two sides to it. An ice maker side and a water resevoir side. One side can be bad allowing the other to work.

    If the ice maker does not cycle and dump the cubes then you probably have an ice maker problem.

    We recently moved and hooked up the water/ice. It

    Replace the icemaker.
    If the ice maker mold is tan or silver they are defective.
    Moisture gets into the head unit and jams the gears.

    You can remove the icemaker and let it dethaw for a day and it might start working for awhile.

    The new redesigned icemakers are brown in color.

    Hopefully the switch on the side of the I/M is turned on..

    I hooked up the ice maker and no water goes to the tray .i have lights on at the icemaker,but,the cam that removes the ice cubes dosent seem to be moving.

    There are a couple of possible problems.

    1) Make sure water feed is turned on ALL THE WAY.
    2) Make sure the ice level switch is down, cause when it is up, it stops making ice.
    3) Make sure the solenoid valve that governs water flow to the icemaker is working.

    Subzero 500 series ice maker

    It sound's like you have a faulty icemaker. The icemaker has an internal timer that commands the inlet valve on at the correct time. If it does not stop the command, it will continue to fill. When you shut off the system, it kills power to the icemaker and that is why the solenoid goes off.

    Ice maker not getting water in the line

    The only other component stopping the valve from putting water into your icemaker is the icemaker itself. Replace your icemaker and you should solve your problem.
