SOURCE: icemaker not making ice

First thing to check is to see if the optics are working properly. This is the red flashing light on right hand side of freezer wall. Close the flipper door, be sure not to block the beam, and the light should go to solid red. If it does then the optics are ok. If it continues to blink then that is your problem. If optics check ok then pull ice maker out and remove the white plastic cover. It just pulls off. Look at the center of the gear wheel and see if one of the plastic tabs is either broken or if they are sort of twisted and touching eachother. If any of these things with the gear have happened then that module will need to be replaced along with the ice maker thermostat. If your not sure how to replace these parts then just replace the whole ice maker. That is much easier and not much more costly.
After changing the parts or the ice maker out follow these steps to start the ice maker thru a cycle. 1. Remove the ice maker from the cradle but leave the harness connected. Remove the front cover from the module. Unplug the refrigerator. Get a small jumper wire with bare ends and jump T and H on the module, leave the jumper in and set the ice maker on the shelf. Close the door. Now plug the refer back in and wait 30 seconds. Open the door and the ice-maker should be cycling. Remove the jumper, put the module cover back on and set it back in the cradle. The fill should take place when the ejector blades reach the 12:00 position. Follow these steps exactly in order

SOURCE: Icemaker makes ice, but doesn't dump it.

If you have a steady blinking light when you open the door then the sensor is working. I these cases the problem is usually in a bad motor or thermostat in the icemaker. If you need I can give you instructions on how to change these parts.

SOURCE: the plastic

I think you mean the ice striper part number WRX10085 and I also believe that will be the only replaceable part on the type of ice maker you have.You can find that part here=> GE Artica Profile Technical Information or Here=> WRX10085 where there is no photo. If for some reason the model number does not match your refrigerator let me make changes to your part numbers. If need you may contact me here on Fixya or my Forum=> Appliance 911 My contact information is located above the Fixya Ad on my blog here=> Sea Breeze Appliance Parts and Technical Services, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Icemaker is making ice but will not dispense. continues to accumulate then over time ice in the bottom of the dispenser will freeze


I can think of two possible problems. The ice has frozen together and will not allow the ice screw to push the ice out the dispenser. Or the motor for the ice screw is broken.
1. Shut off icemaker with lever at icemaker
2. Remove ice container (either throw away ice or save in another container).
3. Put back empty ice container.
4. Leave ice maker off for about an hour.
5. After an hour , check if motor is working by trying to dispense ice. You should not expect any ice but you should hear the motor /auger moving.
A) If you do not hear any thing , you need to get your motor replaced.
B) If you hear the motor , mostlikely you had an ice dam which prevented the ice dispense from working..You can turn you icemaker on.

Frigidaire icemaker not despensing ice


Hello jgamewell - Sounds like the dispenser could possibly have a broken or frozen door dispenser sealed. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly repair/reinstall part.

have you checked the inflow tube to see if it's iced up? if your icemaker isn't filling with water and your getting water in the dispenser your feeder tube is probably frozen

Icemaker makes a loud buzzing noise when dispensing ice.


Hi,

This would be your dispenser door solenoid making the noise, if left alone with out replacing it may end up causing the control board to fail. The part is number 13 on this diagram. http://www.whirlpoolparts.ca/parts/fspShowPage.php?model=MSD2732GRW&pageNo=17

61005884 is the part number you will need to get.

Icemaker only dispenses crushed ice


Your selector solenoid is not working. Next to the auger motor there is a selector. You will see a plastic peice in a hole to the left of the auger.....Try to move it up and down. If it won't move it is more than likely frozen in one spot. Try to defrost it. If that does not work then replace the solenoid.

FRIGIDAIRE SIDE BY SIDE ICE DISPENSER


Have same or similar problem. MY problem turns out to be that the Auger turns fine, but there is a little metal blade that attaches to the end of the auger and transfers the spin action into this auger "hopper" (for lack of a better term) which actually accepts the ice that has been moved from the back of the ice bucket by the metal auger and then dispenses the ice into the hopper which falls into the glass. the issue is one of crappy design. It turns out that this little blade has a rectangular opening in the middle that the rectangular end of the auger fits into. If this rectangle opening gets stripped (as mine has done, and ALL are likely to do) then the auger spins, the ice is moved forward but none are picked up by the hopper, and none (or very few) fall into the glass.
Everyone should check to see if this is the case. If so you may need to order a new blade, or a new auger, or a new refrigerator.

Good Luck!
