Ice Maker not making ice

We had something in the ice maker bin for a few days that I think was preventing the wire arm from operating freely. Once we removed the item from the bin the wire arm was "stuck" in upright position. I used some force and released the arm back to "on" position. The ice maker is making the clicking sounds like its making ice but no ice is coming out. The arm feels loose now and will go up and stay in the "off" position and will allow you to release it to the "on" position. What damage did I do by forcing the arm down and what needs to happen to make ice again?

Ice full when no ice portable ice maker


There is some sort of arm that fits into the ice tray; when the ice fills up the tray the arm is pushed up and a switch connected to it will open the circuit and prevent any future ice maker operation(s). That switch has to be closed for unit to work!

Frigidaire Gallery French Door Refrigerator ice maker not making ice


You can search with your model number to see if a filter is available or not. Secondly unless the ice maker was damaged for sure it's likely that the fan is not running in that compartment or air is leaking into the refrigerator and making the ice maker think its not cold enough to make ice.

Not making ice


There are a few simple test you can do that will answer what the problem is. First look inside of your ice maker and see if there are cubes remaining and if yes just check the switch to be in the on position. Look and see that the ice bin full feeler arm works freely. If the ice make still has cubes the problem is most likely the ice maker. If the ice slots are empty the most likely reason is your triple water control valve=> 241734301-2 Triple Water Control Valve You can test that by filling the ice maker with tap water and if after the water freezes the ice maker drops the ice into ice bin and then does not refill with water replace the water valve. If have any question please feel free to ask, Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice maker overfill


The metal off/on arm may be disconnected. A full bin should keep the arm in the up position and shut off the ice maker.
Remove, then re-insert the metal arm in the back of the ice maker control head.
Make sure that a full bin of ice activates the control arm.
You may need to buy a replacement arm that is longer so that the ice catches on the arm.

I have a Whirlpool Model EC3JHAXRL00. The ice


Is the ice maker wire shutoff arm or switch (depending on
models) in the OFF position?
 Is the water line shutoff valve to the refrigerator turned on?
 Has the ice maker just been installed? Is the freezer
temperature cold enough to produce ice? Wait 24 hours
after ice maker hookup for ice production to begin. Allow
3 days after ice production begins to completely fill ice
container.
 Does the ice maker mold have water in it or has no ice
been produced? Make sure your refrigerator has been
connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve is
turned on.
 Has a large amount of ice just been removed? Allow
24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice.
 Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? The filter
may be clogged or installed incorrectly.
 Is an ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
For models with an interior ice bin, remove the ice from the
ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
 Is a reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? Make sue your connections are secure.

Ice maker won't shut off when full


check the Shutoff Arm:

An arm extends away from the ice maker over the ice cube bin. During each ice making cycle, the arm rises up and then drops back down after the new ice is dumped into the ice cube bin. As ice accumulates in the bin it prevents the arm from dropping back down. When the arm is high enough, the ice maker shuts off and no more ice is made until the ice level in the bin drops.
The ice maker can also be turned off manually by lifting the arm all the way up into a locked position (shown belowef280e4.jpg

The arm is supported at one or both ends. One end extends into the back of the front support (see photo above). If it is not securely in place, it could cause the ice maker to malfunction. Confirm that the arm is securely in place.
For proper operation, confirm that arm is in the lowered position and that nothing is blocking it from normal movement.
To test the shutoff function, lift the arm up into the manual shutoff position. Recheck the unit later to confirm that no ice is being made.
If unit continues making ice even when the shutoff arm is in the up (off) position, refer to the diagnostic table or for a modular ice maker, replace the control module.

check the Shutoff Switch:

Before testing the shutoff switch, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
There are two types of ice makers, those in which all of the parts can be individually replaced and those in which some of the parts are clustered together into a control module. To determine which model you have remove the outer face plate. If there is knob, pull it off first, then pry off the face plate with a small screwdriver.

Modular units have holes in the module's face plate for test probes. If you see several holes, each marked with a letter, it is a modular unit. Component units (like the one shown below) usually have exposed gears and don't have holes for test probes.
Modular units do not use a separate shutoff switch. Instead follow this link to view instructions for checking the shut off arm.

Ice maker does not consistently make ice...


try turning off ice maker for a day. remove the bucket that holds the ice. look all around bucket and into ice maker to determin if there is a jam, or if there is a cube stuck there preventing operation. Check that the ice arm can move freely and it is properly inserted on both ends. Make sure there is nothing in your freezer that could be getting in the way of the ice maker operation, either above or below the unit. One hint-wear disposable gloves when working with the ice maker-if you have any moisture on your hands, you tend to stick to the unit.

Ice maker won't stop making ice


OK, there's two possible issues but you have to figure out what is happening. Does the ice maker continue to make ice forever and would fill up the whole freezer section in time OR does the ice maker just "over make" ice that overfills the bin which then falls out? If the ice maker just keeps making ice you need the motor module replaced but if it can be turned off by moving the lever up then you need the "modified lever assy." that is on our service bulletins.
