Reach into the ice maker hook the ejector blades with a finger and pull them up a little you will hear a ratchet sound then watch them go around and listen for the fill valve before they stop let me know what happens

WHY DOES ICE MAKER NOT HAVE WATER, BUT WATER DISPENSER HAS WATER?


Good Morning Friend, thank you for your post!

From what you have described it sounds like your ice maker is not making ice but your dispenser is dispensing water. If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve your issue:

    1.It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.
    2.Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If your freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.
    3.When was the last time the filter was changed? Most filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency.
    4. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!
    5.Also the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, may need replacing if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, then more than likely it will need to be replaced.

    Hope this helps! - Z
