I want to remove the icemaker to dislodge an ice blockage

It appears that an ice blockage has locked-up or broken the
mechanism. I would like to remove the icemaker to better
investigate. The icemaker is located in a tight dispenser
compartment, and it is hard to see back in there.

OK I will waste no time on this on. I believe the dual water control valve is responsible and has been leaking water to ice maker even while valve is off.

My ice dispenser quit working


There are multiple components that can cause this.
Open the door and put your finger in the ice tray. Is there any ice or water in it.
If so then the problem is likely the ice maker.
If not then the water supply is either stopped up or the water valve solenoid is broke.
If their is ice then the ice maker may not be making ice for other reasons. Is the Ice Level arm down? If so, the Icemaker has a clock like motor that is actuated by a temperature sensor.

Ice maker calls for water, solenoid fills ice tray, temperature sensor gets cold over about 45 minutes and closes the motor circuit telling the icemaker to dump ice.

If everything is right and still doensn't make ice, some mechanical aspect or the icemaker appears to be broken.

Thanks for using FixYa, Good Luck.

Icemaker not making ice


Hi reach up and feel inside the ice tray where the ice is made. If you feel some ice then the ice maker is bad and should be replaced. If you feel in the tray and it is empty then either the water line is blocked or the valve is bad.

The way to determine which is to pull the unit out and remove the lower panel at the back. Trace the water line for the ice maker to the valve, remove the water line from the valve and blow through it. If you are able to blow through the line the valve is bad, if not able to blow through the line there is a blockage. Trace the blockage in the waterline from the valve up to the ice maker and thaw the ice blockage with a hairdryer.

If you have any other questions please feel free to ask. Mike

Whirlpool IceMagic Plus not working.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps the ice but doesn't refill , replace the ice maker . If it doesn't dump , and the cubes stay in the ice maker , replace the ice maker .

The switch on the icemaker for normal , runs the icemaker normaly . In the ice plus , a small fan comes on , blowing the inside air , over the ice maker mold , to help it freeze faster .

Icemaker does not make ice. Appears no water is getting to maker.


If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order:

  • 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. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

  • The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, 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, you can just replace it.

My ge profile ice machine on off light is blinking and not making


Blinking light indicates a fault with the icemaker. Look for a blockage preventing the ejector from making a complete revolution, such as a cube that was not cleared, or some other mechanical blockage. All other faults are icemaker component, which are not available as separate repair parts, which would require replacement of the entire icemaker assembly. Please don't rate this if you need a new icemaker, as anything less than a Fix-Ya lowers my score. Thanks.

Ice accumulating in freezer


There should be a tube that brings water to your icemaker from the back of the fridge into the icemaker. This tube is frozen with water, or the inlet where this tube feed the icemaker tray is frozen. The result is that water cannot go to the ice maker, and instead, goes over the top of the inlet area.

Verify that this is indeed what is going on.

The fix is to remove the blockage/buildup of ice at the inlet. You may have to detach the icemaker to get to it. Be carefull with electricity! Also be carefull as plastic can break under stress!
The tube may be frozen to the inlet, channel locks can be used to gently twist the tube to break it free.
Good Luck!

Ice maker not working


the icemaker will run at 120v ac +- 10% so 108 v is within range altho marginally. since you have the icemaker removed. remove the front cover and check to see if the drive gear is broken or if the 2 center pins that hold the gear in place are twisted or broken. this is most likely the problem. the motor module can be replace very easily part # is 8201515

the normal home position for this icemaker is at the 2:00 position facing the front of the icemaker. if it is any other position the motor module is almost always the culprit..
