Hello,

Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Good luck

Ice maker dose not work guide arm is not up?


Double check the water supply into the icemaker to ensure that water is getting to it and ensure there are no blockages or leaks. Check the icemaker itself to ensure it is cold -- if it isn't getting cold, the system either isn't engaging properly or its disconnected from your refrigerant system somehow.

The icemaker will not work


you might need to replace the icemaker or the freezer isnt getting cold enough for the icemaker to operate correctly. if freezer isnt getting cold enought for icemaker to operate correctly you should probably have it checked by a tech. if the icemaker isnt taking water you also could have a bad water valve

It stopped making ice but cold water option works fine. No clogs visible. Changed cold setting to 7 from 5. Nothing worked. just took out water filter, but can't see how that was the problem.


Put the filter back in . Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps , then replace the water inlet valve . If it doesn't dump and the ice stays in the icemaker , replace the icemaker . Also , make sure the coils are clean of dust etc... Reset the controls back to normal or you could create water freezing in door (dispensor) .

Water is not going into icemaker, I've replaced


I have a maytag side by side with water in the door, the cold water works but the icemaker doesn't. No water flow into the icemaker, it doesn't appear to be iced up. Can not tell if the selenoid works.

Icemaker not working, freezer not getting cold enough....


Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

Ice machine not making ice


Hi, everak11,
Three possible solutions for you.
1: No water coming in from inlet valve. Check voltage on inlet if you have voltage and no water then replace valve.
2:Icemaker not cycleing. Lift the arm on the icemaker to shut it off and leave it for about an hour. Come back in and turn the icemake back on by lowering the arm. If the icemaker does not begin a new cycle and the arm start rising then the problem is most likely an icemaker. Replace Icemaker
3:Refrigerator not cold enough. If the freezer is not getting cold enough the icemaker will not cycle. Check the temperature in the freezer and make sure it is getting down to 0 degrees. If not then you may have another problem with your refrigerator. I hope this helps you, Let me know if you have any other questions or symptoms. Mike
