    I found that the little pin (holding a dial inside the ice maker's enclosure) has 1 broken yong, but the rest of the pin looks to be perfectly intact. Do you still believe that this is the problem?

Your next check is the dual water valve on the backside of the fridge. If there IS voltage when the icemaker is calling for water - the valve (solenoid) has failed and needs replacement.
If there is no voltage present the timer is faulty.

Head over to PartsSelect.com and enter the full model # in to get the replacement parts you require.

Thanks!

Hi,

Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.

I know though you have thawed the tube I would recommend you to do it once again. Check the tube directly inside the freezer where it was filling the ice trays was frozen. You can use a hair dryer to unthaw the tube. If this does not work then take the cover off the ice maker. Check the large white gear in the center which has a little two headed pin to keep the gear in place. Now if the pin is broken or twisted in any way that is your problem and you will need a new icemaker motor module. If this is the case you can install it on your own.
Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

The water works but the icemaker does not. What could be keeping water from reaching the cube tray?


I'm going on the presumption that there are no ice cubes in the mold. If there are ice cubes in the icemaker mold, then none of this is relevant and it probably isn't a water problem.
If the icemaker's ice mold is empty (no ice cubes since they've already dumped) and there is no water getting to it, there are a couple of possible problems.
The first and easiest is that the water line is frozen. The place to check this is the at the tube above the back of the icemaker where the water comes in. They have been known to freeze up there or at the elbow on the back of the freezer. If this is the case, you can thaw it with a hair dryer. That bend and tube going down to the ice mold is the only place it will freeze up. If you have to cut the manufacturer's pressed on clamp to remove it to thaw it, you can replace it with a small hose clamp.
If all that is clear, the next choice is the water valve to the icemaker is stopped up or bad. When the icemaker cycles, it should hear it kick and the water flow. Looking from the back of the fridge, it is usually in the lower left corner...just follow the water line in from the wall. If it is a "water in the door" model, then there will be two water valves down there. The line to the door will go under the unit, the line to the icemaker heads straight up.
If the unit isn't cycling at all, it is probably a problem in the control module.
Hope this helps

Kenmore model 79578502800 refrigerator error code 1F. icemaker does not work


The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig maybe frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker

Solution #2 Replace the "water inlet valve" at bottom back right of refrig. Easy To Do.

Defrost the freezer completely. Make sure the doors are sealed completely when shut. After defrosting plug back in and make sure the fan and the self defroster is functioning (your owner's manual should tell you how to reset the defrost timer). the problem may lay within the defrost system, and/or door seals and/or interior circulating fan.

Easiest way to thaw out a possible frozen water reservoir in my GE side by side fridge?


Hair dryer is the easiest way to thaw. To find cause: Remove lower grill and disconnect the water line going through the freezer2_bing.gif door hinge. Usually it is a push lock fitting, which requires you to push the ring2_bing.gif on the end of the fitting toward the center of the fitting while pulling (not hard) on the plastic tube. Now place a pan under the separated plastic hose and try the water dispenser. If water comes out, your problem is a frozen water line in the freezer door. A warmer freezer temp may help, or you can order and install a WR49X10173 water tube heater2_bing.gif. (the heater may take 24 hours to thaw the line, but I have used it successfully several times. Cost about $50) If no water comes out the separated tube when you try to dispense water, reconnect the tube at the hinge by pushing the plastic line back into the fitting. Now, at the back of the refrig., disconnect the water line going from the water valve to the fresh foods compartment. Try to dispense water. No water at valve outlet = bad valve. Water dispensed from valve now = frozen water filter2_bing.gif or water line at back bottom of fresh foods compartment. (make sure you disconnect the right tube. If in doubt, disconnect them both, just get them back correctly so your icemaker continues to work) Send me additional comments if needed. Don't rate before you try all the steps.

If water filter or water line/ reservoir is frozen, thaw with a hair dryer. If reservoir is frozen, check to make sure there is no frost on back wall of inside freezer, preventing normal air flow, allowing cold air to enter fresh foods compartment through return air vent at lower back of fresh foods compartment, resulting in freezing of water line / reservoir and possibly food in bottom bin.

Icemaker stopped working


You will have to determine whether the problem is due to no water getting to the icemaker or a control problem in the icemaker unit.

There is a water valve near the bottom of the refrigerator where water from the outside source enters the refrigerator. This valve sends water to the icemaker (and probably the water dispenser) when the refrigerator controls call for water. These valves can malfunction, and the water lines can get blocked.

The other possibility is that something inside the icemaker controls has malfunctioned, and it is not calling for water.

Ice maker stopped working


The laser , is supposed to blink . This laser , tells the icemaker to stop making ice , when the bin is full . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . If it doesn't dump the cubes into the bin , the icemaker is bad . Or , if there is ice in the bin , which hasn't dumped , the icemaker is bad . If the icemaker dumps the ice ( from water pour ) , then look above the fill cup , and see if the black fill tube is frozen . If so , then replace the water valve and turn the freezer temp down slightly . It will take several days for this fill line inside freezer to thaw . If icemaker dumps , and black tube NOT frozen , replace the water valve . The valve , is where the wall water line connects to on the refrig .

check the dual water valve one side is for the icemaker the other for the water in the door
either a water valve issue or a ice maker problem
if the valve checks good check the line off of the valve to the ice maker you should be able to blow thorugh the line to the ice maker if you caint blow through the line it is frozen in the freezer behind the icemaker and will need to be thawed
if you can blow though the line to the icemaker
replace the icemaker

Turn ice maker off for 24 hours to thaw out any additional frozen lines.

No water dispensing to the icemaker. Water does dispense through the door dispenser. KitchenAid ksbs25fkbl00


Unplug your refrigerator and leave the freezer door open for 2 hours (The food in the freezer will only partially thaw).

The line supplying the water to the ice maker has frozen...this will un-thaw it.
