It really helps to know the model and make of the refrigerator. The full bin on some models have a bar that gets raised up and if the bin full, the arm gets raised high enough to open the circuit for ice production. When ice is used the bar lowers and a Microsoft in the controls shut starting the ice production again. If bar is missing it will keep making ice until you raise the bar to the off position.
If you have one of the new type ice machines, some of them use infrared sensors and thermometers and the like to sense ice production.
If you have a fairly new refrigerator, it may be still under warranty and for small fee a factory trained representative can analyse cause and replace broken parts under warranty. Warranty information will be in the information package that comes with the machine.
Hope this helps!
Hi, If you want to have a working ice maker it will need to be replaced. You can buy the whole unit part # 1129316 for almost the same price as any of the individual parts. Behind the unit on the back wall is a plug with several wires unplug this plug to disable the icemaker. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.
I took the arm of the ice-making machine out of the slot and put it back in, pushing it snugly inside the slot, then raised and lowered it several times. Then, with the arm in the up (stop making ice) position, I felt inside the ice-making tray, where I noted there were ice cubes as well as a sheet of ice at the base of the ice-making tray. I poured approximately 24 oz. of hot tap water into the tray to melt the sheet of ice. I turned the freezer temp control to "warmer". I think the freezer temp setting was too cold, causing the ice maker to freeze the water before it could make cubes. I have a working ice maker again!
im sorry to tell you, but the sound is probobly normal. fridges these days make some weird noises. they started making noises when they changed the gas to R34a. you may be able to get a noise ruduction kit for your model. they are not too fun to install
Defrost system problem. Could be in heaters, defrost thermostat, or defrost timing circuit. Freezing in vegetable section is due to air back flow related to frozen evaporator coil in freezer compartment. Colder air settles and warmer air raises.
Ice maker problem is separate. Bar up engages micro switch that is supposed to shut it off. Bad micro-switch?
on the back wall just above or under the fill tube youl find the wire harness , simply unplug the ice maker, while your at it 3 1/4 screws mount the ice maker to the side wall, youll have more room in freezer by removing it
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.
