Ice maker not making ice


Check the shutoff arm, the shutoff arm fails to move upward when the ice bucket is full.

Check the water pressure. If there is not enough pressure, the ice maker will not have enough water to make ice.If water flow pressure is good, check solenoid valve activate and also it's cleaned.

Locate your ice maker, remove the ice bucket. Pull the cover off the end of the ice maker. Locate the holes "V" and "L". Take a paper clip (jump clip) and tape. Straight the clip and put tape in middle. Hold the taped side and insert the clip into "V" and "L". This sends the power to water valve. If water goes into ice-maker, water valve is good. If notreplace solenoid.

Check the freezer temperature. The proper freezer temperature should be around 5 degrees. The warmer it is in the freezer, the more difficult it is to make ice. thanks, helpful?

Will not make ice


The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice.

Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Weird moaning noise from freezer compartment


I took out some ice from the icemaker and turned the temperature setting up a few notches (making the freezer a bit warmer). I'm not sure which of these tactics fixed it, but the noise stopped almost immediately!

Fridge temperature has suddenly dropped to 15


Check the door gaskets, condenser fan, refrigerator fan and the freezer fan. That should narrow down the problem.

Jenn-Air bottom freezer ice maker not working


I took the arm of the ice-making machine out of the slot and put it back in, pushing it snugly inside the slot, then raised and lowered it several times. Then, with the arm in the up (stop making ice) position, I felt inside the ice-making tray, where I noted there were ice cubes as well as a sheet of ice at the base of the ice-making tray. I poured approximately 24 oz. of hot tap water into the tray to melt the sheet of ice. I turned the freezer temp control to "warmer". I think the freezer temp setting was too cold, causing the ice maker to freeze the water before it could make cubes. I have a working ice maker again!

Freezer does not keep food frozen, ice maker does not make ice. Refrigerator temp seems warmer.


There is a temperature control in either the fridge or freezer, that just needs to be turned up to a colder setting it sounds like.

Ice maker not working freezer temperature at 31


The ice maker isn't working because the temp needs to be at least down to 10 degrees. The fridge side should also be warmer than normal. If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
If it's not a defrost problem make sure the fan in the freezer and behind the unit next to the comrpessor.
