There is a water valve in the unit which lets the water in the ice maker.If this valve is faulty then the solenoid valve needs to be replaced.But if the solenoid valve does not solves the problem this its blocked water passing line to the ice maker.Check out if the line is frozen or blocked by dust or ice cubes.If all this checked ok and still the same problem,then its the faulty ice maker board and it has to be replaced.As you mentioned that indicator light inside freezer not working so this is also indicating towards faulty control board for ice-maker .But all other possibilities has to be first confirmed ok then only the board has to be checked and replaced.

Ge refrigeration model 20-25 icemaker not making ice



Fill ice maker with tap water and allow the water to freeze. If when the ice maker cycles and drops ice into ice bin it chooses not to refill with water at end of the cycle. That would point to the dual water control valve. If ice maker does nothing when filled with tap water that will indicate a defective ice maker. The model number you listed does not appear to be correct. Look around the fresh food section door frame and see what you have. This could be the ice maker or the dual water control valve causing this problem. Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice maker will not fill with water.


You mean " Why The Water Doesn't Fill the Tray in Kenmore Ice Maker?"
Am i right to your question? Well, Kenmore brand refrigerators often have an ice maker that uses the water supply to create ice inside the freezer compartment. Some models have an ice dispenser on the freezer door for easy access, and others simply create ice and deposit it into a tray inside the freezer. While most ice makers should work well with basic maintenance and care, issues may occasionally arise. One such problem is if the water does not fill the tray to create ice inside the ice maker. Resolving this issue may be possible through some troubleshooting efforts.

1 Remove the ice bin from the freezer.

2 Fill a turkey baster with hot water.

3 Spray hot water from the turkey baster into the tube at the back of the ice maker, which may be frozen or clogged.

4 Repeat spraying water into the tube until the blockage or frost is removed.

5 Replace the ice bin into the unit.
Please let me know if this help you.

My Whirpool Bottom Freezer Refrigerator keeps collecting ice at the bottom of the freezer and eventually, every couple of weeks, leaks onto the floor. It does have an ice maker which is not hooked up. We...


The defrosting heating element may have burnt out. Also if the gasket around the door/drawer isn't sealing correctly moisture from the air leaking in could be condensing inside and then freezing causing the build up.

Ice Maker is not working on Whirpool model GD5NHAXMB00


Hi, Make sure the temp in the freezer is 0 to 5above zero. You might have another problem causing the icemaker to act up.
IfI can help further, please let me know.
