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.

Icemaker not working


In order to keep your refrigerator's ice maker working properly, there are some components that will require routine maintenance and inspection. Some of the most common problems that can occur with your ice maker are the ice maker not making any ice, making too much ice and not shutting off, the ice tasting bad, ice cubes too small or discolored and ice cubes not ejecting from the ice maker. Checking your ice maker for potential problems on a regular basis will keep it operating efficiently.

1.Inspect the water supply line for any signs of cracking or crimps in the line. A pinched water supply line can keep the water from getting to the ice maker, resulting in no ice or smaller than desired ice cubes. Check to verify that the water supply valve is open enough to provide an adequate supply of water to the ice maker.

2. Flush out the water supply lines if you are noticing a bad taste in the ice cubes. This can be done by disconnecting the lines and running hot water through them. Turn on the hot water at the kitchen sink and place one end of the water supply line near the tap, holding it in place to allow hot water to run through it. Place the other end of the supply line in the sink to allow the water to drain through.

3 Reattach the water supply lines to the water supply and refrigerator. Repeat step 2 for the water inlet hose which runs from the inlet valve to the ice maker. If the water supply lines are old or discolored, consider replacing them with new water supply lines.

4 Check the temperature in your freezer to verify that it is getting cold enough. The freezer's temperature should be at 5 degrees and can be set with a control dial, normally located in the refrigerator compartment of your appliance. To test the freezer's temperature, place a cup of cooking oil in the freezer with a cooking thermometer sitting in the cooking oil. Allow the oil to sit in the freezer for 2 hours and then check the temperature.

5 Check the ice maker's shutoff arm to verify that it is operating properly. To work normally, the shutoff arm should be in the lowered position. Inspect the arm for anything blocking it or preventing the arm from moving freely. Lift the arm up to see if the unit shuts off in the up position.

6 Unplug the refrigerator from the electrical outlet and remove the faceplate of the ice maker's shutoff switch with a screwdriver, located on the ice maker. Remove the entire ice maker unit from the freezer by undoing the screws that are holding it in place. Unplug the ice maker from the freezer and take it out of the freezer to work on.

7 Remove the mounting plate on the top of the ice maker by unscrewing the screws and lifting it off the unit. Locate the shutoff switch, which has three electrical wires attached to it. The shutoff switch is located directly under the shutoff arm of the ice maker. Pull the electrical wires off of the shutoff switch with needle-nose pliers and label them so you know how to put them back correctly.

8 Inspect the electrical terminals for any rust or corrosion. Use an electrical testing meter to verify that the shutoff switch is working properly. You should get a reading of 0 or infinity on the meter. If the shutoff switch is not giving a reading, replace it with a new switch and reattach the electrical wires to the switch.

9 Place the mounting plate back over the ice maker and attach it with screws, then reattach the entire ice maker unit to the freezer. Plug the ice maker wiring back into the freezer and put the face plate back over the front of the ice maker.

10 Plug the refrigerator back into the electrical outlet and allow the refrigerator to run for a couple hours. Inspect the ice maker to verify that it is working properly.

Hope this tips would help you.
Good day! : )

My ice maker has stop working .mod FRT21TNGD3/FRIGIDAIRE


First need to determine water supply. Water filter and or inlet screen fouled? I know this is assuming the water supply is open..
Check the ice level bar to be sure it is in the correct position for making ice. If it is incorrect poition, the ice maker "thinks" the ice bin is full. I would start there with the water supply though. Most likely...

Leak on the ice maker water supply


Good day,
The house water supply is connected to a dual water valve on the bottom rear of the machine. It splits there going to the ice maker and water in the door.
If the ice maker side is feeding water to the ice maker even though the ice maker is in the off position means the diaphragm in the valve is leaking and must be replaced. Very common problem.

Our ice machine does not make full ice cubes. they are small and not complete, they are full of holes.


The icemaker requires a water pressure of 1.5 - 8.5kgf/cm2. It is acceptable if the water supply fills a cup of 180cc with water in 3 seconds. The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount of water fills the ice tray.

Ice maker not making ice. Water is in the supply


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Ice maker only makes cubes. It will not make crushed ice.


Hi

Kindly check it could be because of following reasons :

  • Freezer may not be cold enough.
    Temperature must be 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) or colder to work properly.
  • Normal ice making capacity.
    The ice maker will produce between 2.5 to 4.0 pounds of ice a day depending on your model. Side-by-side models come with a large ice bucket and it may take up to three days to fill this container.
  • Water supply valve may not be completely open.
    Open valve completely.
  • Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough.
    Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
  • Water filter may need changing.
    If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
    Please feel free to contact for further assistance

    Thanks

    The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.


    Hello jitkagardner,
    Welcome


    You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

    How old is the fridge?
    When have you last changed the water filter.
    Should be down below at the front grille!
    Try these tasks!

    If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice
    Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
    shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water
    supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
    • Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
    water flow. Straighten the water source line.
    • Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
    (depending on model) is in the ON position.
    • New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
    for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
    production.
    • Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer
    compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not
    close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely."
    • Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
    ice maker to produce more ice.
    • Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
    Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
    • Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and
    operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may
    be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it
    correctly.
    • Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
    your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.

    Let me know how it goes!
