The ice maker is not working right

My ice maker is very slow at making ice. Sometimes it does not work at all. Also water is getting in the ice bin and freezing so the dispenser screw will not turn. Sometimes there is water in the door and on the floor that has leaked from the in door dispenser.

Have replaced the 3part inlet water valve for our fridge freezer. Water is working fine,but still not making ice.


Check the ice bin level arm (also the ice maker on/off switch) is in the down position. It senses when the ice bin is full and turns off the ice maker until some ice in the bin gets used. It can also be lifted into the up position to turn the ice maker off.

No ice....slow to refill ice tray


You need to check the water pressure coming from the water shut off to the frig. Sometimes right at the shut off debris gets in and the water comes out really slow.

if this isnt the problem then it could be one of three
water valve not opening 100% (replace)
ice maker timer is not working properly (replace)
the tube that feeds the ice maker is frozen

My maytag is model MFD2560HES serial number


does the water dispenser work OK ? if yes , a try this : pour 3/4 of a cup of water into the ice maker, right into where the ejection fingers are. also , take all of the ice out of the ice bin. then , give the freezer time to freeze the water you have poured into the ice maker and see if the ice maker ejects the ice into the bin. if it does, it might reset itself and refill the unit and work normally.

Ice maker is working, but there is water in the bottom of bin


You will need to pull out what ice you have in the bin to get to the drain. Once you have done that, take a hose and force water thru the drain. You may have to snake the drain if is more than a build-up of ice. Once the drain is working, clean out the bin with ice machine cleaner and sanitizer. Restart the machine and make sure no water is dripping from the evaporator above. If there is, it needs to be cleaned.

Amana SBD21VE No water to ice maker


your water line to the fridge is most likely leaking. You should turn it off right away. The line turn off is either behind the fridge or under sink. sometimes its in basement. The line is very easy to replace. You can get the plastic ones at home centers for under 5 bucks.

Kenmore frig ice machine doesn't make cube ice


Normally, the ice "cubes" are crescent shaped. The most likely cause for "crushed" ice is that the ice maker isn't getting enough water on its refill cycle after ejecting the tray. Becuase there isn't enough water, the ice looks crushed...it's actually shattered.

Check the water inlet and chute to the ice maker. Sometimes they freeze and have to be manually defrosted. A hair dryer will do the trick. Also check the water chute and be sure it isn't partially frozen.

Start there...if no luck you could also have a failing water filter or sticky water solenoid valve.
