Tip

What to do if your ice maker stops working


Many refrigerators now come with built-in ice makers. Ice makers are very convenient, but occasionally they'll develop problems. Why pay a repairman to come out if the fix is easy and you can do it yourself?

Here are some tips for fixing an ice maker that stopped working.

- Check the on/off switch

Freezers with automatic ice makers have a switch that is used to turn the ice-making feature on or off. This switch is typically a rod above the ice box; when it's lowered, the ice maker is on, and when it's raised the ice maker is off. If the ice box fills up with ice, the ice can force the rod up, turning off the ice maker. Check this bar to be sure it is in the lowered position.

- Check if the auger or chute is clogged

Your ice maker has a chute where the ice falls from the freezer into the external tray (where a glass is placed). There is also an auger inside the freezer that rotates to drive the ice forward from the ice box into the chute. Check the chute for large chunks of ice that may be clogging it up, and check the auger for ice cubes or chunks that might have gotten wedged between the auger and the freezer, causing the auger to be unable to rotate.

- Check the water line

If you still haven't found the problem, check the water line leading into the freezer. This water line has its own valve. Make sure the valve is open, allowing water into the freezer to create the ice.

The ice box on the ice dispenser appears to be clogged so ice cannot be dispensed on either setting (chunk or crushed). How does one remove the ice box front to look inside?


Hello there,
For you to be able to remove the ice maker from the refrigerator, you will have to get a screwdriver and a work glove, then you follow the steps below:
  1. Pull the LG refrigerator away from the wall and unplug the electrical cord.
  2. Shut off the water supply valve to the ice maker by twisting the knob clockwise. The valve is built into the metal or plastic tube that feeds water to the ice maker at the back of the appliance.
  3. Open the freezer door and remove the ice bucket below the ice maker. Set the bucket in the sink for the ice to melt.
  4. Lift the white plastic housing off the ice maker and set aside.
  5. Remove the screws that connect the ice maker assembly to the inside back of the freezer, using a screwdriver and work gloves to protect your hands.
  6. Push up on the ice maker from below to release the mechanism.
  7. Disconnect the wire plug that connects the ice maker to the back of the freezer and remove the entire assembly.
  8. When you are through with what ever you want to do with the ice maker.
  9. Reconnect the LG refrigerator power cord and slide the appliance back to its original position.

Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp

Our Amana French door ice maker is clogged with ice chunk about 2-in x 6-in and we can't pull it out. The area is too small to pour hot water in onto the ice. Any suggestions?


Good day,
What you have described sounds like a defective water valve on the back bottom rear of the machine. It will need to be replaced.

Although awkward, the best way is to remove the ice maker completely and let it air dry, while the valve gets changed.

The above diagnosis is based on the fact the freezer is maintaining it's normal temperature. If for some reason the freezer thaws and then refreezes that problem would need to be addressed first.

Water leaks from somewhere in the freezer and collects in the bottom where it freezes. How can I make it stop? It gets so thick it leaks out the front and make a puddles on the floor. I have to take a hair...


Your freezer has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the unit. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your freezer,due to line freeze over. In the freezer, standing water will become ice and may result in defrost problems or inadequate coldness.

You will need to Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into the drain line with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog. This will correct the issue.

Build up of ice in bottom of freezer compartment


During the defrost cycle heaters in the wall of the freezer are turned on to melt the frost build up. This melted frost "water" is supposed to run out a drain in the bottom of the freezer and collect in a pan under the refrigerator/freezer where it will eventually evaporate. If this drain is blocked it will cause a lot of water to collect in the bottom of the freezer and that water will eventually turn back into ice. I recommend defrosting the freezer manually, removing all the ice/water buildup in the bottom, and trying to unplug the drain line to the pan underneath. Also check the seal on the freezer door. If it's not sealing well it could be letting a lot of moisture enter the freezer which would lead to more frost buildup and more water during the defrost cycle.

Ice cubes made by ice maker become large fused chunks over time.


Ice cubes will deteriorate over time if not used. They shrink due to defrosting of the freezer and will become stale.
Once the ice bin is full, turn the ice maker off until you use the cubes and or dump the cubes every 3 or 4 days and start over.
