Tray won't dump the ice once frozen - LG Refrigerator/Ice Maker

The tray won't dump the ice once frozen, however the icemaker thinks it has and dispenses more water on top of the ice - which drains into the freezer section. How do I fix this?

SOURCE: Frigidaire Icemaker not making ice.

That on/off arm...you should be able to move it and it will likely make a small click when the switch goes on or off. That arm controls the ice making. There is also a float, is it working freely? It has a switch too. Ultimately, the water is controlled by a solenoid valve. It may be defective. Many of these units are removable to test the switches with a multimeter. Turn off the water and remove to test. Some parts are available...some parts are by the unit only.

SOURCE: icemaker will not dump the ice into tray

Make sure that an ice cude is not stuck somewhere in the maker. I had a simular problem and that was it.

My icemaker fills the tray but when the water shuts off it drips on the the ledge under the tray and ice builds up. Also now my ice cube tray seems to be leaking.Are parts available or does the entire unit...


My ice maker would not return to a level position after dumping out the ice. When the water turned on to refill the ice tray, it would run off the tilted ice tray and into the ice basket thus freezing all the ice cubes in the basket together. To remove the icemaker, there are two screws that hold the icemaker to the top of the freezer. Turn off the icemaker. Remove the left screw and loosen the right screw by removing the screw on the left. Slide the icemaker outward and it should come loose. Unplug the power connector from the icemaker to the freezer. The ice tray can be removed from the icemaker by gently pulling the tray to the right and the slot it goes into on the left side of the icemaker to the left. Once the tray is out of the assembly, inspect the round plastic shaft on the left side of the ice tray. Mine had two flat spots that were worn into the plastic from use. I used a dremel tool with a round barrel sanding disk at the tools lowest speed to remove the flat spots and decrease the overall diameter of the shaft which stopped the tray from sticking. Reassemble the ice tray in the icemaker.

I set the ice maker feature to make cubes with my samsung refrigerator rs2555sw. But the ice maker makes a ice chunk. All the cubes are frozen together with a flat and thick layer of ice on top..


Hi and welcome to Fixya.

Remove the front cover after the ice tray has dumped cubes and remove all of the water from your ice maker tray.

Then depress the test button on the bottom of the icemaker (in front on bottom) located about 1 inch from the lower rh corner.

The icemaker fill cycle should add just enough water to cover barely cover the tray. (see page 32 of the 25 Sept 2005 user's manual)

If it is overfilling the icemaker fill time / water level needs to be reduced on the ice maker module. A normal fill cycle is about 7.5 seconds.

Another thing that will cause larger cubes is high water supply (utility co) pressure.

A temporary fix would be to slowly close the refridgerator water supply line's shut off vavle so that the water flow restricts.

The real solution is to investigate ice maker fill time, and the function of the icemaker water supply solenoid vavle for possible Delayed closing of the internal diaphram.

Ice maker has ice in the tray, but will not dump or do anything


"Ice in the tray". Do you mean ice is in the well of the ice maker, or in the tray or bucket that collects the harvested cubes from the ice maker?
If the problem is the ice is in the ice maker well, and will not dump, then, if the ice maker is turned on, and the temperature in the freezer is 14 degrees or colder then the ice maker has failed.
In rare occasions an ice maker can be repaired but is rarely done, and is a repair only someone with strong working knowledge of ice makers can perform.
If you are handy with tools you can remove the icemaker. 3 screws and power plug. Once out you can check the well to see if something has jammed up the rake, but that's about all.

Samsung Refrigerator makes ice, but then quits.


I have this same thing happening, also. I have not been able to find a solution to this issue, however. The ejector blades push against the ice, apparently a gear pops loose with a loud clicking sound and the heater either does not work or never turns on. I end up killing the breaker to thr refrig,`removing the icemaker, letting it wrm up dumping the ice and putting it back in.

Ice maker problem


Clear the Ice tray by pressing the button under the ice maker. The problem is that the ice is in the first couple of slots is not dumping and the tray tries to fill again and over flows. I pressed the button and cleared the tray of ice (This will tilt the tray and twist it to empty it) that was re-frozen several times without dumping. My ice maker works perfectly after I did the above. I think the problem arises if the door did not close completely. I stopped hanging the dish cloth on the door and on my LG Dish wisher. I hope this helps

Whirlpool GD5RHAXNQ00 Ice maker not making ice


We had a similar problem and there was a broken/stripped gear in the icemaker. A&E replaced it to the tune of $150 or so. I don't recall exactly but I recall my husband thinking he could replace the entire icemaker for the price we paid to repair it. The gear make the ice tray flip out the ice once frozen. Good luck, hope that helps a little.

Water Doesn't get in


Once you get the ice maker solid block cleaned out, you need to re-prime it by pouring in fresh water using a cup to just below the blades. It will not kick out ice and refill until the temperature sensor senses the frozen ice. With no water in the tray, it can't sense. It must dump to trigger the refill.

Ice maker jambed-now no water


The ice maker must be re-primed with water to sense frozen ice in the tray, dump, and refill. Use a cup or glass to manually pour the water into the tray just below the top of the blades. It should freeze, dump, and refill.
