Ice Maker bar won't come down


I have not worked on this model before but on the whirlpool they have a bar as well. you can turn off ice maker by pushing it up and it locks in place to stop ice production. if u want it to make ice u push it up slightly and it should move down. also check the ice maker tray to be sure u are getting water to the tray. if u get the bar to go down and no water comes in then check that u have water at the back of fridge.. if u have water there but not in the tray then you may have a bad water inlet valve on back of fridge.

I have a side by side model ACD2238HTS SN#13640707LJ. The ice dispenser door spring seems too strong and you have to reach up with your fingers to pull it open so the ice can come out.


Maybe excessive water dripping from the ice maker that cause the door to "lock-up" a bit. May need to adjust the water flow to ice maker. If that doesn't work, maybe the tempt is set above recommended level and causing the door to stick.

Ice maker will only cycle once then it goes to off position . It stop working due to ice build up in supply tube. I removed the ice maker and ran hot water over unit to clear out the ice that was lodged in...


That bar your talking about goes to the full up position just before the end of the harvest cycle then falls right at the end of the cycle. But on a good day it barely drops. Characteristic of that ice maker.
If you ran water over the ice maker try these 2 things.
1. Remove the ice maker and leave it on the counter for about 2 days to completely dry out. Then re-install and try again.
2. If no luck, hang a small weight to the middle of the wire to see if it will drop on it's own.
3. If no luck, you'll have to replace the ice maker. However,
if your commited to buying a new ice maker, first snap off the front cover and look for interference where the wire goes into the ice maker. You can actually remove the whole solid state front end by removing the 3 screws that hold it on and make a more detailed check.
P.S. pull the wire out of the ice maker before this last step. It simply pulls out.

Ice maker is not working. the on/off bar seems to be working properly, but the ice maker is not operating.


Either there is not power to the unit, or the water filter or valve is bad.

Crosley side by side ice maker makes to much ice !!!!!!


Most ice makers have a wire bar that senses when the ice bucket is full. The bar lifts up when new ice is made. The ice maker determines if the ice bucket is full by lowering the bar back down after the ice drops into the bucket. If the bar hits the ice cubes in a full bucket, the ice maker shuts off. If the bar drops all the way and dosen't touch ice cube, the ice maker continues making ice until the bucket is full.

So you likely have one of the following problems:
1) The wire bar is missing or bent. Check to make sure that when the bar is pushed up, the ice maker stops making ice. Most bars will 'click' into the up position so you can shut the ice maker off. Push the bar up until it clicks into the up position and wait overnight to see if it makes more ice. If there is no wire bar over the ice bucket, that is your problem.

2) The switch the wire bar is connected to is malfunctioning. If you push the wire bar up and the ice maker continues to make ice, this is likely your problem. You will need a new ice maker unit. Try Appliance Parts Pros or EBay for a new unit.

Ice maker


The is a small heater in the boottom of your ice maker that is most likely not working. The heater comes on when the ice reaches a frozen state to allow the ice to melt just enough that the rotating arm can push the cubes out and into the tray.
Unfortunately, it will most likely cost more to have a technician fix the existing ice maker than it would to just have anew one installed.
I would opt for the new ice maker.
