if your saying you want to stop ice production,simply remove the white front cover on the icemaker and where you will see the large 2" gear look to the upper right side and theres a small round hole with a screw driver fitting,simply take a screw driver and turn that white plastic screw to the left till you hear a click,now the icemaker is off
The easiest thing to do is remove the icemaker first. Ujnplug your fridge first, though. Take a 1/4" nut driver and remove the screw at the botton of the icemaker. Then loosen the 2 screws on the topside of the ice maker. You'll be able to see the back screw, but the front one is kinda hidden....you'll have to use your fingers for eyes on that one! Lift up on the icemaker and it should come free from the screws. Disconnect the electrical plug, being sure to release the little latch on the side of the molex plug.
Now you can work on the icemaker....there is a white plastic cover over the end of the icemaker, pull that off and you can start to see the guts of the icemaker. There are 3 phillips head screws holding the motor module on, and the rest of it can be torn down from there. Good luck!
the water that enters the ice maker is controled by a thing called a solenoid valve (electricaly operated) the" water in door system" is a manual operated valve.. typicaly when the ejector rolls around to put the ice in the tray the solenoid opens lets water in then closes could be solenoid / wireing or controler
Hi, The first step you need to do is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed. If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board. If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker. You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.
Thank you for contacting Fixya.com
You have a bad water valve . Both solenoids work independently of each other . 1 for the water dispensor and one for the icemaker .The icemaker when 5 degrees and harvests , tells the valve to give it water (electronically) .
We need to know if the ice maker overflowed or if there is a crack. Sometimes the water gets frozen in the fill tube and diverts the water everywhere other that ice maker. Rare but sometimes something causes the water control valve to stick open on rear of refrigerator. Your ice maker has a thermostat inside it and starts a cycle when the thermostat says the water has frozen. That starts a cycle of about six thing to happen.The defrost element below ice maker warms the bottom just enough to loosen the ice. Micro switches feel and sense the position and as it nears ending the final step the ice maker tells the water control valve to open for a few seconds. An adjustment in that control may stop over flow. But if cracked in a major section it will need to be replaced. Let me know if this helps you. Sea Breeze
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck email@example.com
