Arm must be disengaged inside ice maker or the smal switch in ice maker

Posted on Aug 02, 2010

  • dragonz_lair Aug 03, 2010

    So is the switch easy to find? or is in inside the housing?

  • gespinoza213 Aug 03, 2010

    the switch is inside the ice maker which can be rmoved by pulling the wire harness from ice maker and removing two screws holding the unit remove the white cover you will see where arm engages (the switch)

My BI98 u-line ice machine won't stop making ice even with bin arm up.


I would suspect the switch controlled by the tray full sensing arm/bail. That's kind of like the main power switch for the ice maker. You can remove the outer cover from the ice maker with the power unplugged! Then look at the mechanical operation of that lever as it relates to the switch. The lever should cause the switch to open and shut off the timer motor. Some times you can buy the timer separately otherwise you replace the whole icemaker. Don't forget to remove power and turn off the water before you remove the old icemaker.

The ice maker stopped making ice one day


A typical problem with these is some type of bin sensor that tells the icemaker that the bin is full. it is usually some type of "arm" that shuts it off when the ice rises to a level that raises the "arm" to "kill" the icemaker

Freezer is trying to make ice cubes but unable. I can hear it tripping. Should arm be in up or down position?


Hello the arm should be in the down position in order for the ice maker to try and start makeing ice cubes. when you stated you can hear it tripping what can you hear tripping can you see the icemaker arms spining. Sometimes i find it is best to remove the icemaker from the unit 2 1/4' screws located on top and one located on the bottom and then take the hole icemaker and run it under hot water for a couple minutes this causes any parts on the icemaker that are froozen up to become defrosted and sometimes it will go back into proper functioning order as well. If you have any further questions message me back Thanks
Rick
p.s if arm was in up position this would shut the icemaker off and it would not attempt to make ice any further

ICE MAKER WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY SHUT OFF


On the ice makers on refridgerators unless the ice in the bucket is high enough to raise the arm on the icemaker it will not shut off. Most people lift the arm up when they see the bucket full. I have the side by side Whirlpool model and on mine if I don't raise the arm the ice will fall out the bucket before it will raise the arm high enough.

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
