Ice despenser not working

Our power was out for 48 hours and now our ice despenser has frozen water blocking any ice cubes from coming out. How do we unclog the despenser as it is the part that is part of the door that is clogged?

My water dispenser is INOP.when lever is pressed only a hum can be heard but no water. Removed water filter and water shoots out inlet. Attempted to blow on inlet portion on water filter and no air flowed...


The water line may be plugged or frozen.
Remove all the food and put in another freezer and shut the freezer off for 24 hrs and see if it works then. Is there ice cubes stuck in the despenser ? If so clear them out. May be the jammed ice cube my not let any water through.

Sub zero 532, ice maker issue. water enter the cube bin freeze into a block of ice with the cubes embedded. What is the cause of this issue?


There is a few things that you will need to check to isolate the problem. this first thing is locate the fill tube where the water comes into the ice maker. What you are looking for is any ice frozen inside causeing an overspray of sorts. If that checks good, then the next thing is look at the icemaker itself. Look at where the water goes to and freezes. Is it completely full of frozen water? if so then the water valve is sending too much water either because the ice maker called for it or the valve stuck and didn't close when it was supposed to. If its not full, look at the bottom of the ice maker, checking if there are any cracks allowing water to fall into the bin. My personal opinion though would be to change the ice maker and the water valve because of the age of the machine. the bad part is the actual icemaker for that model has been discontinued but I believe you can use a whirlpool style that matches, comes in a kit that has both the water valve and icemaker, and cost almost half the price as the original. that part number is 1129313

My LG refrigerator will not produce ice cubes, only crushed ice.


Hi,
Ice maker makes crushed ice.
1)For every 6 moths or 1 year you have to replace the filter.The decreased flow is caused due to filter problem.You said you cleaned the filter and the problem still persist.
2)Check the valve see the below picture how ice dispense parts interconnected.Thepat no 15 the valve which will be blocked by ice or dust you have to remove it.Can you see the valve 22 will connected down of water tub.SO check the valve is not frozen.

Simple if the valve decreased flow or crushed cubes means there is some block.May be due to dust or frozen ice.

Note:Just switch of the switch for 8 hours or more and let the frozen ice melts on the valve.Please see to it all the frost melts fully.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Not despensing ice


Make sure the ice bin is pushed all the way in position. Also make sure you don't have a big clump of frozen ice blocking the auger and keeping it from working.

It is a good idea once in a while to take the ice bin out and completely wash and clean it out real good.

Ice maker makes ice cubes, but the doesn't dispense ice cubes.


If you could observe exactly where the water is dripping from it would help but...If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.
If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.
The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Ice turning into a solid block in freezer. Samsung Refigerator


Hey, Your defrost thermostat or defrost heater may need to be replaced. The frost should be removed every 8 hours automatically. The ice is not freezing all the way into cubes because the temp. is too warm in the freezer to make ice.
The wire may just be a ground wire BUT it may have electrical current going in it.
This is dangerous and need to be repaired. Hope this helps.

ICE MAKER


Sounds like you are not getting enough water into the ice maker tray. When the ice ejector removes the ice from the tray, it may be causing the ice to splinter which is the crushing you describe. The problems could be:

* The water inlet valve
* The ice maker water inlet is partially frozen in the freezer section
* There is a problem with the water line (kinked or partially obstructed)
* The timing mechanism for the inlet water valve isn't working correctly

Check #2 from the above list first

Ice maker freezes up and drips water


I am assuming you have the ice maker that the tray twists to release the ice. There is a new tray out with a wall to prevent the water spilling over. The part number is
