Not making Ice

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.

Best thing to do is make sure the paddle is free to move and not covered in frost. and if that doesn't work. Replace the Icemaker and you will be good to go.

Thanks,
Bill

Your ice maker will move the arm if working properly. I bet the ice maker is dead and the ice forks are stopped in a position other than the home position

My ice maker has stopped producing ice - I have a whrlpool fridge freezer


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?

GE ICE MAKER, VERY LITTLE ICE,


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!

Ice maker dispenses ice without anyone pushing button.


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 .
