The temperature in the freezer has to get down to around 6 degrees. If the temperature is correct than remove cover on ice maker and see if it is moving, I may take a few minutes to actually see it move. It sounds like the filter problem may have damaged the inlet valve or ice maker or even possible both. Check to see if Ice maker still cycles. You can also check to see if the inlet valve is good by switching the hoses from water dispenser and ice maker. Press the water dispencer for a few seconds and see if it sends water into the ice maker. Any further assistance please contact me back.

Just replaced the water filter on our side by side Kenmore 53569202, thinking that may have caused our ice maker to quit working. when opening the door to the freezer, there is a red light blinking twice...


You could have ice in the water shoot which formed because your inlet valve is clogged. The inlet valve is locater in the back behind access cover. Melt the water shoot with a hairdryer and then replace your inlet valve. Fairly inexpensive and easy to change. The reason the water shoot becomes ice is the inlet valve get slower and slower water flow which gives it time to freeze on the way in to the ice maker. Hope i helped, Rate me.

Ice maker quit working on GE refrigerator


Sometimes on a ice maker what will happen is the water line that fills the ice maker will freeze. You can use a large syringe filled with hot water and from the rear of the frig remove the water line where the hose goes into the rear of the frig and force some hot water into the tube to see if it is clear.
If the line is clear fill the ice maker manually and see if it goes through a cycle.
If it goes through a cycle you have to check to see if the ice maker is calling for water by putting a multi meter across the contacts of the water inlet valve located behind the panel on the back of the frig. Advance the ice maker to run through a cycle and see if it is calling for water. If you have current going to the valve and no water momming in, replace the valve.
If you do not have current going to the valve after the ice maker has gone through a cycle. Replace the ice maker.

My ice maker quit working when I replaced the water filter.


Your model Maytag comes with an electronic ice maker and if you just recently changed the water filter the water should be dispensed for 2 or 3 minutes or until any air that may be trapped in the lines is removed. If air is sill present in the filter the ice maker opens the water control valve for about 7.5 seconds. If air that is what the ice maker will get until the air is completely purged from the system. If you fill that you have past that point then pour tap water into the ice maker and let freeze. After the water freezes the ice maker should cycle and dump. If not the the ice maker core may need replaced. If yes it dumps then the air may not yet purged or the water control valve for the ice maker side may be defective. This is one of those wait and see repairs. I will send you a link to the copy of the service manual and page 71 begins addressing the ice maker. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice machine isn't working


Two things come to mind.

First, the water valve at the bottom rear of the refrigerator may have failed. You didn't mention if there is a water dispenser and whether or not this is still working. This valve pumps water to the icemaker and water dispenser when the control unit of the icemaker calls for water. Also, there could be a blockage in the line which brings the water to the icemaker.

The other possibility is that the part of the icemaker controls which calls for water from the valve has failed. If this has happened, it would likely be more cost effective to replace the icemaker unit.

My ice maker has just about quit working for no reason that I can find


Check to see if water is in ice cube forming tray. If No then probably a bad water inlet solenoid. Water line to fridge goes to inlet solenoid.

LG SIDE BY SIDE - REPLACED FILTER BUT WATER VERY SLOW


You may have ice building up inside the fill tube that is slowing the water flow.  You will have to remove ice maker to see inside the tube.  If the tube has ice buildup, use a hair dryer to melt the ice.  Then is should work fine.
