Have a Arctica side by side and it stopped making ice. I used to have to pull out the paddle under the ice maker to get it to produce ice and now it has stopped making ice all together. The unit is just over a year old.

Causes are: 1. Check shut off arm- If it fails to move due to lot stored ice cubs, remove some quantity of ice cubs. 2. Check the water pressure. Due to lack of water, it may stopped producing ice. 3.Check freezer temp: must be around 5 degree. 4.Check water hose has no leak. due to scarcity of water, ice maker could stop making ice cubes. 5. If water valve defective ice cube could not be made. To check the valve please follow this step.
Locate your ice maker, remove the ice bucket. Pull the coveroff the end of the ice maker. Locate the holes "V" and "L". Take a paper clip(jump clip) and tape. Straight the clip and put tape in middle. Hold the tapedside and insert the clip into "V" and "L". This sends the power to watervalve.If water goes into ice maker, water valve is good.Hope, is it helpful?
I had this problem with my GE ice maker not working and it was an
unbelievably easy fix. If you have the same ice maker then you will see
a green light by the power switch. Below the ice maker is a "paddle"
ice sensor. The paddle is attached to the ice maker and there is a coil
type tension spring. If your paddle is loose, make sure the end of the
spring (the pointy wire end) is inserted into a small hole. You
probably can't see the hole but move the wire end until it pops into
the small hole. You should now have tension on the paddle. At this
point I had heard that the freezer light bulb may be drawing too much
current for the ice makers motherboard. I removed the bulb and,
UNBELIEVABLY, the ice maker began making ice! Try removing or replacing
the LIGHT BULB first!
Possible fault with the electrical connector at the bottom of the door as these can corrode or the microswitch behind the paddle has got jammed , try pulling the paddle forward a little . You should hear the switch click when you push the paddle back .
the most comon problem is the ice machine in the freezer actuates at low teperatures. actuation is when the unit goes into harvest the ice. if your freezer is not aciving low enough temperature the ice machine stops working ' check to ensure the condensor under the fridge is not pluged with dust .Also make shure there is adiquit air flow around the ice machine. hope this helped someone . http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp
