My ice maker is not working. My filter needed to

My ice maker is not working. My filter needed to be changed for quite some time. I emptied the full tray of ice & no ice was made. I went & replaced the filter & still no ice. model # 106.56536400. Does the accelerator 2 button need to be on? Also the ice bin is on the side door & there is a lever inside the bin but does that have to be turned a certain way? I don't think so. Any ideas. Thanks

Our ED5SHAXM ice maker is intermitant. It will make ice for several weeks and then suddenly stop making ice, the water flow to the ice maker stopes and the bin empties it's final time. Then weeks later it...


Either the freezer temperature is too high or the internal thermostat inside the ice maker is faulty.
The freezer temp must be 5 degrees or less for the ice maker to work correctly.
If the freezer checks out OK you will need to replace the ice maker.

Do i need to change the filter in order to get the ice maker to work? the water still come out but not into the ice maker. please help!


no you donot need to change the filter first. all of the water goes through the filter first. you either have a bad water valve for the ice maker. a bad ice maker. or bad optics that sense the ice bin on the door is full. can you move the ejector blades on the ice maker? that will tell you if the ice maker gear is broken.

Ice maker stopped working


The water line may be clogged with debris. there is sometimes a filter in the water line to the fridge, or also a screen filter may be located at the point where the water line connects to the fridge. If they are clogged, your ice maker will not make ice and may even burn out.
Check that the water in the line is flowing freely. Also it might be a good idea to defrost the freezer in case you have a ice buildup in the freezer compartment. To do that, empty the freezer and blow air into the freezer for 30 minutes while the power if off. Note, keep the other side closed to protect the milk and other perishables.

Ice maker on GE Profile quit working. Emptied tray of ice and put back in, not producing any ice.


Make sure the "Full" actuator is in the down position. Sometimes when the ice tray is removed, the full actuator flips up to stop ice production.
Hope this helps.

Water not coming out of fridge


First, I'm not a Whirlpool Tech.
*** Following is for information only.***
* Sputtering or no water from Ice machine and tap indicates a clog on the water line.
* Most of the newer (last 15 years) refrigerators come with a built in filter. It's probably clogged. Check the link below for changing out filter or type in "Whirlpool refrigerator water filter replacement'
* There could be ice blockage in water line if you have a very low temperature setting on your fridge. Most are set in the middle of the dial. If your set at maximum could then this setting may be too cold for the water line (it's coiled in the back of the refrigerator and may have frozen up.) Back the temperature a bid and give it a day or two to melt.
* The ice tray is missing a cover.
* Ice tray "Ice Full" lever is stuck in the Full position. Check if the Ice level (usually a stiff wire) is in the down or empty position. (some lock in the full position to turn off ice maker manually.)
* Check the water line to the refrigerator (or In-Line water filter) for water pressure. Turn off water supply. Remove water line from refrigerator and place end of line in empty bucket. Hold line down and have someone turn water back on then off after a few seconds (they may be too far to hear you yell "turn it off?!") If it just sputters then the line needs to be cleared. Check the needle valve for clogging. Close it off and re-open it several times. Otherwise this valve needs to be replaced.
* Follow the flow of water through each part: Supply line, supply valve, Water filter, Refrigerator inner filter, Tap point and Ice maker.
* Final, Check your warranty as any work (other than a MFR recommended customer water filter change out.) will void it. Call your vendor for service to be safe. (Have them do an annual maintenance while they are servicing your unit.)

ICE MAKER HAS QUIT WORKING


take off the cover to the ice maker. make sure the 2 tabs in the middle of the main gear are in tack and not broken. if one of those tabs is bent or broken, the gear will not make a full rotation. if the gear is fine, check your fill tube in the back of your freezer that goes to the ice maker and make sure it is not frozen. if it is, it will need to be thawed. does your unit have a water filter? if so,it may be plugged and need to be changed. the last thing would be an issue with the water value itself.

Ice maker quit making ice


your refrig has a built in bypass in the filter housing so yes it will work with out a filter in place. if you have not replaced your filter in the last 6 months that is likely the problem. Hollow cubes are usually a sign of not enough water getting into the icemaker then it cycles too fast and harvests hollow cubes.

when the hollow cubes fall into your bucket they bust and put water in with your cubes freezing them together. so by solving your water supply problem you'll solve most of your icemaking issues..
