Ice maker not working. Seems stuck. Freezer is cold. Ice maker does not move not water in try either.


After you have checked to see your water is turned on...

All the schematic diagrams I have looked at show a SEPARATE FUSE for the Ice Maker...

That is the cheapest and best trouble... and NOTHING will work without that fuse.

There is a separate water solenoid for the water... next cheapest issue (but you could eliminate that as a possibility simply by filling the ice tray manually)...

After that I would be ordering the Ice-Maker and keeping the old one for parts.

All the fill valve power and ice making SMARTS are inside the ICE-MAKER.

Good luck with that!

My srf7520ss is not making ice


These fridges are renowned for this problem & even Samsung seem to not know the answer. BUT I DO & WILL SHARE.

I was about to replace the ice maker, as that is what everyone seems to recommend. BUT being a skinflint & a why is it so person, I decided to do some logical fault finding first.

There is this thing called fuzzy logic & these ice makers need to know you are using lots of ice, so as to make more.

I found that emptying a near full ice tray into a plastic bag & putting this bag in the freezer, the ice maker would not necessarily make more ice! If it did it was very little.

A few days of this & I decided to operate the ice discharger motor for like a minute & a half when the ice tray was empty.

Within 10 minutes one could hear water being loaded into the ice cube maker. Some time later the cubes being dropped into the tray & the filling/discharging process repeated, until next morning the tray was near full again.

In summer [like now, with our very hot 30*-38*C [90*-100*F] weather] I do this, all the time, so as to ensure we always have plenty of ice. Works everytime.

Away for an extended period, as we are often the tray will fill then no more [or turning off the ice maker while away] & the ice maker won't get back on track until you do the above.

My icemaker is not working. Water not filling tray


Probably the valve that feeds water to the ice maker leaks and this water freezes up at the filling tube to the ice maker and the water doesn't go through, but if the filling tube is not frozen and the ice maker doesn't call for water the problem is in the ice maker inside board ,if so you should replace the ice maker.

Roper Ice maker wont kick ice cubes out of tray.


Remove white plastic cover on ice maker. On bottom you will notice the heater connections, check for voltage. If good, heater is most likely bad.

LG Ice maker


I got the same problem where the plate is cold and the water does not fill - saw this comment from other posting and help. Basically, the ice maker was stalled! Make sure you can see the green light is on, which means you have power. if its lit, press and hold the cube size button until i/m starts to cycle. If i/m runs, but does not fill then your water valve is bad. If i/m will not start then your i/m is at fault.

2003 whirlpool ice maker doesn't work


May be an issue with the cam that operates the ice maker. U can pick up a new ice maker for about 40 bucks on ebay.

Lots of things could be bogus. If the solenoid does not open, no water in tray - no ice. If tray does not get warm for fingers, fingers cannot push ice out - no ice. If freezer is not at least 10 degrees, no ice making at all. If cam motor for maker is bogus, anything could be out of whack.

Make sure that the ice maker is in "on" mode.

Water doesnt stop after ice tray is filled


there is a micro switch in the ice maker motor module that shuts power off to the ice-maker water valve when the ice maker is full but i rarely see them go bad this is the easy way to deal with it pull the unit out unplug both the valves and turn the water on a sec if its running in the ice maker with the valves are unplugged then replace the valves if its not replace the ice-maker motor module
