Question about Freezers

1 Answer

Ice Maker I recently moved into a house with a Whirlpool side by side fridge freezer combo. The freezer has an icemaker with an in-the door bucket and infrared detector - I am guessing for when to drop ice into the bucket. The infrared light is flashing, but the ice does not dop from the maker into the bucket. I can feel that there are frozen cubes in the maker. Any ideas?

The LED's are optics they sense the level of the ice in the bucket on the door under the icemaker is 2 1/4" screws you can remove the IM and the white cover put a small jumper in the pins T and H this will cycle the IM the door and optices will need to be closed (or best to tape them so you can leave the door open the IM should cycle if nt check the power at the N and L pins see if you have 120vs then we can go from there

Where is the ice maker reset button on a Samsung RS265TDRS?


This ice maker is on the door, so
remove ice bucket
move your fingers up under the ice maker tray guard on the left side until you find a button
you may have to press this several times, perhaps hold down firmly until you see some action
then quickly replace bucket & close door

Fridge Freezer model KA58NP90 Ice maker problem


What is most likely your problem is the crushed ice solenoid. This solenoid, which is located next to the auger motor behind the ice bucket, is failing to actuate when you request cubed ice. Its "home" setting is crushed, and actuates to allow cubes past the crushing mechanism in the bucket. To be certain its the problem, remove the ice bucket, and tape the door light switch in the closed position. actuate the ice dispenser lever, for both cubed and crushed ice. you will see a square hole next to the rotating fork, when you select cubes, it should open. If it does open, there is something wrong with your ice bucket, perhaps the arm is broken, or the door inside bucket is off its snap in type hinge or broken altogether. If it doesnt open, replace the solenoid

Sears side by side fridge model# 10652542101. ice won't work but water works fine. have heard that icemaker screen may be the issue, but would like a manual so i can clean or repair it. sears has no...


There is no "screen". Most of these units have dual water valve on rear of unit (two valves on one mounting bracket) located on lower right side of unit. Follow inlet line to where it terminates, you will see water valve. First thing to determine, is the ice maker making ice and not dropping it thru door, or no ice dropping into bucket. Stick finger into I/M and see if you feel ice or if it is empty. If empty (no ice) chance are that I/M is problem, not water valve. Check I/M by pouring water from small glass into I/M,let sit for 2-3 hours and see if it drops ice into bucket, if it does, possible bad water valve, if it doesn't, bad I/M. Those are standard I/M & water valves, available at most applianc parts stores including sears.

Why is there water in the ice bucket of my ice maker? It is a GE side by side, but without the dispenser in the door.


hello, how are you, if there is water in your ice bucket, it seems as though when your icemaker sends a signal to water valve to give water, your water valve is sending too much water into icemaker, the solution would be to replace water valve which is behind the refrigerator at the bottom. it should be blue in color which clear plastic tubing connected to it. This happens when the water valve solenoid doesnt close completely.

ICE MAKER MOTOR RUNS CONSTANTLY AND WONT' TURN OFF ICE IS FULL


It's not too difficult to remove the ice maker. A few screws and the unit will unplug from the fridge. Then you can see why the bar is not turning it off. If it's really broken, check pcappliance.com for parts or a replacement unit. Meanwhile the fridge can keep on working, and you can use trays to make ice.
