You will need to check if water is actually in the tray which would be ice if temperature is below 32 degrees. If you can feel ice then it is making ice but not harvesting it. you can advance the timer using a jumper wire. Pull the front cover off and make a 5" jumper with a 1/2" stripped on both ends. Place the jumper between T and U; They are located at right lower corner. Hold jumper in place as the gear begins to move you will hear a click, remove jumper and watch as the ice is harvested. Sometimes this will fix it. If it doesn't advance then you can just replace the head or the part inside.

Our Ice maker is not producing ice. I've tried using a hair dryer to melt possible frozen water. It worked once, but now that ice maker is back to not producing ice.


The heating element is not working to heat the base and free the ice from the tray. At this point it's probably better to just replace the ice maker. They are about 60-70$

Assuming you have active water supply to unit, either water valve or ice maker is bad. If Ice Maker is sending power to valve during Ice cycle, then valve is bad. If no power to valve during Ice cycle, then ice maker is bad.

Ice maker makes ice cubes, but the doesn't dispense ice cubes.


If you could observe exactly where the water is dripping from it would help but...If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.
If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.
The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

I have a Whirlpool Model EC3JHAXRL00. The ice


Is the ice maker wire shutoff arm or switch (depending on
models) in the OFF position?
 Is the water line shutoff valve to the refrigerator turned on?
 Has the ice maker just been installed? Is the freezer
temperature cold enough to produce ice? Wait 24 hours
after ice maker hookup for ice production to begin. Allow
3 days after ice production begins to completely fill ice
container.
 Does the ice maker mold have water in it or has no ice
been produced? Make sure your refrigerator has been
connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve is
turned on.
 Has a large amount of ice just been removed? Allow
24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice.
 Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? The filter
may be clogged or installed incorrectly.
 Is an ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
For models with an interior ice bin, remove the ice from the
ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
 Is a reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? Make sue your connections are secure.

Ice maker only makes cubes. It will not make crushed ice.


Hi

Kindly check it could be because of following reasons :

  • Freezer may not be cold enough.
    Temperature must be 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) or colder to work properly.
  • Normal ice making capacity.
    The ice maker will produce between 2.5 to 4.0 pounds of ice a day depending on your model. Side-by-side models come with a large ice bucket and it may take up to three days to fill this container.
  • Water supply valve may not be completely open.
    Open valve completely.
  • Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough.
    Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
  • Water filter may need changing.
    If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
    Please feel free to contact for further assistance

    Thanks

    ICE MAKER NOT WORKING CORRECTLY


    Hello deloreslovat
    welcome,

    You said ,your ice maker makes the ice but does not drop it into the bucket. It just leave it in the upright position in the ice maker device. It also seems to not be making all of the ice cubes only a portion of them.

    Here are somethings to check that may cause this

    The ice cubes are hollow or small
    NOTE: This is an indication of low water pressure.
    Water shutoff valve not fully open? Turn the water shutoff
    valve fully open.
     Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
    water flow. Straighten the water source line.
     Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
    your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.
    See “Water Supply Requirements.”
     Questions remain regarding water pressure? Call a
    licensed, qualified plumber.

    Let me know if this helps.

    ICE CUBE MAKER SMELLY ICE CUBES


    Hello margrek
    Welcome,

    YOU SAID, YOU HAVE KENMORE ELITE BOTTOM FREEZER WITH ICE MAKER THE ICE CUBES SMELL HORRIBLE ALWAYS, I EVEN TOSS THEM OUT EVERY FEW DAYS, STILL SAME PROBLEM


    Ice has bad odor and taste.

    1• Ice has picked up odor or
    flavor from strong food stored
    in refrigerator or freezer.
    2• Water running to ice maker
    has poor taste or odor.
    3• Ice not used frequently enough.
    4• Cover foods tightly. Discard stale ice. Ice maker will
    produce fresh supply.
    5• Add filter to water supply line. Consult a water purifying
    company.
    7• Discard stale ice.

    Be sure that the fill tube is getting into the ice maker and that the ice maker is not blocked with ice.  If everything seems ok, you may have a leaking water valve which causes it to constantly drip water into the ice maker causing the block of ice.

    Ice maker doesn't make enough ice to supply two senior citizens. This is the 2nd refrigerator we have had installed this month. What can we do to increase the amount of ice it puts out. The ice bin has...


    Found in the FAQ section on Samsung.com:
    Samsung refrigerator freezers produce about 120 cubes per day, which is in line with most manufacturer specifications.
    Empty the ice tray and let the unit run for 24 hours.
    If fewer than 50 cubes are produced during the 24-hour test, then your refrigerator requires service. Please contact Samsung Service at 1-800-SAMSUNG to schedule a service appointment.
    If your freezer is producing 50 to 90 cubes per day, try the following:
    • Set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting. Freezer temperature must be 5 degrees Fahrenheit or less for the ice maker to work properly.
    • Make sure that the water valve on the refrigerator water supply line is completely open. You can find the water valve where the refrigerator water supply line taps into your house water line.
    • If you have a water filter in your refrigerator, change the filter cartridge. For instructions, see your Users Manual.
    If you want your freezer to produce more than 120 ice cubes in a day, try the following:
    • An ice maker typically makes 1 tray of ice every 90 minutes. To shorten the amount of time the freezer takes to produce a tray of ice, set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting.
    • If your refrigerator has a Power Freeze function, press the Power Freeze button to speed up the ice making process. In the Power Freeze mode, both the compressor and the freezer fan run for 10 hours continuously. The ice making interval is reduced from 90 minutes to 55 minutes. If the ice bucket fills in less than 10 hours, Power Freeze stops automatically.
    NOTE: If you have just installed your refrigerator, it will take 6 to 12 hours for the refrigerator to produce ice.
    You should throw away the first three batches of ice cubes that the ice maker produces (approximately 30 cubes) to ensure the ice maker is making ice from clean water.
