    The Icemaker continues to make ice. The ice is well frozen.

    The Ice maker still works and the ice is well frozen...The cube and crush buttonsnare mechanically sound..I believe the crushing mechanism is stuck in the on position.

Hi, there is an opening next to the auger that dispenses the ice. In there there is a lever that must move up and down. It actually seats the metal rod on the bottom of the ice maker and controls cube or crushed. Make sure the lever is down (cube position) when you return the basket to the freezer. I had to hold it down while I slid the rod into the opening. Viola! Cubes again.

Make sure the freezer temperature is cool enough for the ice maker to produce ice. The ice maker thermostat contact is opening even the ice is not completely frozen. The thermostat is designed to cut off the ice making at a certain temperature. Replace the ice maker thermostat with part number 3206322.

    The CRUSH button may be stuck in the on position. Unplug the
    refrigerator then as it is plugged back press and hold the CUBE button
    then dispense ice to check if it still crushed. You may need to unstuck
    the button if that is the case or replace the control button assembly.

Rf267abrs only 14 cubes of ice in 1 day


I would give it a few more days most icemakers will not cycle if the temp around the icemaker are above 15 degrees F.Leave the door closed.Open door for even one minute can take a while for freezer to cool off to temps around 10 or colder. Also if you do not have much in there it may be a problem as well it is harder for freezer to cool open space. If I can help with anything else please let me know.

Icemaker problem


Good day,
with a small paper cup, pour water in the ice maker cavity to near full. make sure it's turned on, and close the freezer door and wait approx 3 to 4 hours. See if it dumps. (I've had new ones out of the box that never worked).
If the ice maker checks o.k. then it is one of two problems.
1. The fill tube that runs from the back of the ice maker to the outside rear of the machine, has become blocked with ice.
Remove ice maker, and inspect closely. If iced, defrost, but be carefull with heat. A lot of plastic and vinyl there that is easily ruined.
2. If that checks O.K., and you get water in the door, then the dual water valve in the bottom rear is bad, and needs replaced.

Icemaker/water dispenser not working.


Just had to defrost the water tank inside the fridge for a few minutes. Using a waterproof heating pad with extension cord did the trick. Even a fridge needs a warm blanket from time to time.

Ice maker has stopped making ice. It appears no water is getting to the ice tray. There's no sound (click) when I flip the on/off switch (but I don't know if there's supposed to be any sound). It worked...


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

Ice Maker stopped making ice - water dispenser is fine.


well first the icemaker valve and water despensor valve a separate so you might want to try but to change it out you have to change both valves cause they made together then also check and makes sure your tube is not froze up and if that aint it then change your icemaker now for a little tip the icemaker will not run as long as the freezer door is open

I have a kenmore 106.52603100 side by side refridgerator. A few days ago we found water in front of the unit on the floor, it appeared to have come from the ice maker and it is now not working, no water is...


First thing to check is if the water inlet tube is blocked with ice or not. Often this is the case and people have their icemakers replaced with no luck. It the tube is not frozen with ice, then check the arm that turns your icemaker on and off. this should be in the down position. There may be a reset button on the front of the icemaker.
There is one solenoid that control water to the icemaker and a different one that supplies water to the dispenser. Often the Ice solenoid will quit. If you are good with an electronics meter, you can test the resistance across each solenoid....they should each measure the same. If one reads open or much less then the water supply valve is bad.

Ice maker stopped after electric shutoff


You may have a problem with the computer control board in the ice maker.  Try this.  Turn off the icemaker for about 2 minutes.  
Turn on the ice maker and press the clear button.  Press and hold this button for 12 seconds to get it to force extract.  This will confirm that the motors will work and push the ice cubes out.  Afterwards, let it run by itself.  If it still doesn't make ice, you will need to replace the icemaker.

No ice on new ge profile fridge.fridge is 6mo old.several days ago service tech installed new ice maker.3 days later still no ice.filter has been changed


Hi dbalaban,
Only a few things that would cause this problem. So lets start with the easy one. It is possible the tech forgot to turn the icemaker on. If the icemaker has a metal arm just push it down to turn it on. Most GE model icemakers have a little toggle switch on the front of them, Just flip that puppy to on and viola.
The second thing would be the refrigerator is not getting cold enough for the icemaker to cycle. The best test for this is a thermometer. To function properly the freezer needs to get to 0 degrees or colder. If you dont have a thermometer then check your ice cream. If it is soft then you have a refrigerator problem and not a icemaker problem.
3rd possibility. This is probably easier than the first. The tech installed the icemaker and forgot to turn the water on.
I hope one of these fixes the problem so you will give me a FIXYA. I am glad to help. mca0824
