How do I get the ice maker to produce for the first time


Is the arm that gets pushed up by the ice cubes (in order to stop making ice when it is full) in the down position? it is able to be pushed up and locked so that the icemaker doesn't make at ice and may need to be pushed down.

My Samsung freezer has stopped giving out ice


Does the ice bin have any ice in it? If not has the ice maker arm been raised up to the stop position? If so lower it, this will start the ice maker again, and after several hours the ice bin will have enough ice to be dispensed from the door.

No water in ice maker we bought this appliance second hand and installed it this afternoon. There is water in the door dispencer, but not in the ice maker Thank you Johan Kruger


If you just installed this unit it may take time for the icemaker to start to receive water. The water through the door you had to sit and keep button depressed to clear the air from in the line. The icemaker only calls for water for 7.2 seconds. It usually takes a few cycles before ice maker gets water. Give it 24hrs and see if it helps. Make sure the arm on the icemaker is set to on. Usually pushed down.If you have any questions Please comment me back

Maytag sidebyside MSD2758DRW ice maker won't make ice


Hi,

If the ice maker no longer make ice, check the following.

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.

Thanks

Ice maker does not make ice anymore. appears the tray is not filling with water. door water dispenser is still working


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

KitchenAid ice dispenser tray is dry - not working


Put some water in the ice mold is what I would try. wait and see if the ice maker harvest a batch. If it does drop a batch but no more then the water valve is probably shot. The ice maker itself controls the water. It does this by filling the ice mold for 7.5 seconds. Here is your Ice maker repair manual and some repair photos along with a pictorial which snows how to check the water valve.

Solenoid valve?


By not knowing what model or how old of fridge you have, I'll give info on the most common 5 to 10 year old whirlpool. They were all basically the same.
Sounds like the water valve. When you have both water and ice in door, you will have a valve for both. Sometimes there is a single valve followed by a double valve. The double is most likely bad. Most of the time the double valve has two different size tubes. one is 5/16" and the other is 1/4". The one that supplies the ice maker is the one with the small tube (1/4") If both are the same size you will need to determine which is which. Seeing you water in door works, try this. Find the double valve. Swap the plugs going to it. Now push the lever in the door like your getting water. This will energize the ice maker valve. If water does not enter the ice tray, you have a bad double water valve and it will need to be changed. If water does not enter the ice maker try, you have a ice maker not calling for water, meaning that there is a micro switch is bad inside the ice maker head. You can replace this switch for around $6.00. or replace the ice maker it's self for around $100.00. It's not had to change the micro switch. You might want to give it a try.
Please rate this solution if helpful. Thanks

Kenmore Galaxy Ice Maker Not Making Ice


Sounds like you have a bad water valve. It will have a dual water valve on the back where the water connects to the unit. You can take the wire plugs and swap them around. Then push the water in the door leaver. hold it for around 4 sec. Then see if the ice tray has water in it. If it does, you have a bad valve. If not you ice make is bad, turned off or the freezer is not cold enough to operate. ( It has to be 5degrees or lower before the ice maker will try to operate)
Please rate this solution if it helps. Thanks

Intermittent flapping noise whirlpool fridge freezer


Hi: Go easy on my rating as this is just something to try. You say it dosn't have a dispenser. Does it have an Ice maker? If so is it hooked up? If not try raising the lever on the ice maker up to the off position. The water valve may ve trying to open and without water pressure it will make a noise. It would also be related to the switches on the door. I hope this helps, Jeff

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.
