Ice maker stopped making ice. For this problem you have check few things. First thing, is the water filling in the ice maker chamber and then ice maker not making ice? Or, the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber so it's not making ice. If the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber then it's clear that ice is not getting made due to no water in the chamber. For no water filling, the problem is either water supply valve turned off so water is not filling. Turn on the water supply and it will fill. But if the water supply is turned on then the other possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from which the water runs and enters the ice maker chamber. If this tube is blocked then water will not enter the chamber. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is water valve. This water valve is for letting the water in the ice maker. The water valve open only for 7 seconds and in this time the water fills in the ice maker chamber and then water valve closes and the same procedure runs again in the next water filling cycle.------- The main valve on the back of the fridge section. This main valve lets the water enter the refrigerator .In most of the cases the fault is water valve . ------------- The other above possibilities which I gave you is water not filling in ice-maker chamber so it's not making ice. But now consider that water is filling in ice maker chamber but it's still not making ice. Then the problem is ice maker unit itself. This unit is controlled by main board. But in most cases if water is filling the ice maker but it's not making ice then its faulty ice maker unit. So see if the problem is water not entering the ice maker then the water fill tube is frosted by ice or the water valve is faulty. Replace the valve. ------------

Model 106.57036601 Ice maker quit working couple days ago had water off in whole house, had to repair a water pipe in the restroom.


There are a couple or three ways to test your ice maker and dual water control valve to identify the location of the problem. By looking at what the ice maker did on its last cycle or the lack of a cycle will help a lot. If ice maker has old cubes then the ice maker has not cycled and that tells me that the ice maker has been turned off or it has become defective. Another test is to pour tap water into the empty slots if there was not old cubes there. Allow the water to freeze and if the ice maker cycles and dumps the cubes into the ice container that would indicate a defective dual water valve=> 4389177 Water Valve Kit- Double Outlet The first three numbers of your model tells me it was made by Whirlpool and that tells me that removal of the front cover of ice maker you have test points. If me knowing what I know of ice makers I would be prepared to change both ice maker core=> 2198597 Ice maker - Replacement

The ice maker is not working. Apparently the water doesn't arrive to the freezer. The model of the Refrigerator is PTB1954GR.


Either the water passing line is clogged/ blocked or got loose or the water inlet valve is faulty.It has to be checked.Read as follows:---

My ice maker has stopped making ice. We had to shut down the main water valve to the house and after returning the water to the house is when the ice maker stopped working. We have established that water...


Good day,
For all reasons it is best to do a step by step procedure to get the ice maker up and running.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

No water getting to water filter or ice maker


the refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). the valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. the ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. also check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. the water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.
