Tip

What to do if your ice maker stops working


Many refrigerators now come with built-in ice makers. Ice makers are very convenient, but occasionally they'll develop problems. Why pay a repairman to come out if the fix is easy and you can do it yourself?

Here are some tips for fixing an ice maker that stopped working.

- Check the on/off switch

Freezers with automatic ice makers have a switch that is used to turn the ice-making feature on or off. This switch is typically a rod above the ice box; when it's lowered, the ice maker is on, and when it's raised the ice maker is off. If the ice box fills up with ice, the ice can force the rod up, turning off the ice maker. Check this bar to be sure it is in the lowered position.

- Check if the auger or chute is clogged

Your ice maker has a chute where the ice falls from the freezer into the external tray (where a glass is placed). There is also an auger inside the freezer that rotates to drive the ice forward from the ice box into the chute. Check the chute for large chunks of ice that may be clogging it up, and check the auger for ice cubes or chunks that might have gotten wedged between the auger and the freezer, causing the auger to be unable to rotate.

- Check the water line

If you still haven't found the problem, check the water line leading into the freezer. This water line has its own valve. Make sure the valve is open, allowing water into the freezer to create the ice.

Kenmore side by side ice maker not working, water does work, checked the back not a frozen line. The problem occurred when the compressor/start device was replaced in the summer. The repairman said that...


There are many things that can go wrong with a Kenmore refrigerator ice maker. Your ice maker may be leaking. It may not make any ice at all, or the ice that comes out smells or has an odd appearance. The problem may have an easy solution, or it may require a technician's expertise. The troubleshooting tips in this article will minimally make you aware of what is likely the source of the problem. You may be able to fix the problem yourself and save a bundle.

When it Won't Make Ice
1 Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.
2 Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.
3 Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.
4 Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.

Hope it help you.

Have a nice day.

We are in Australia and have had an Amana XRSS287BW fridge freezer with ice maker for 5 years. The freezer is icing up near the ice maker, the condensor is not icing up. It appears to ice up and the fan...


they do not repair icemakers for the simple fact it is cheaper to just buy a new unit aka icemaker in fact the icemaker when the repairman buys it costs him between 47-90 dollars at which for him to disconnect the three bolts and reinstall the icemaker the charge usually starting around 189.00 first thing to do would be to look at the tube where the water is going into the icemaker and observe if you have a leak from the tube the next step would be to inspect the icemaker for cracks in the ice making tray if this is also ok has your repairman checked the t-stat this is a small two wire round disc like object located behind the back panel this is what regulates your temptreture and turns the heater on when your freezer gets to cold another thing to check would the drain tube that goes from the bottom tray under the condensor sometimes this also gets blocked with ice.In turn when it does get blocked the ice just builds up the t-stat is located as part number 3 on this diagram from this link http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Amana-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-XRSS287BW0/1268/0165000/M0610184/00014?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= lastly if your fan is not spinning at the addequate speed that it is supposed to be spinning at then the amount of cold air would not be leaving your freezer to go into your fridgerator and when the heater kicked on the water that melted off the condensor coils would build up also as ice if your repairman is saying its the icemaker visually inspect the icemaker yourself here is a link also showing how to remove your icemaker http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Amana-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-XRSS287BW0/1268/0165000/M0610184/00008?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= please message me back with your finds after you have visually inspected for yourself. i hope this opinion has helped in your appliance situation please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation and i await your reply

Ice maker was making ice now water seems to be spraying all over freezer instead of going into maker


Have you changed the water filter as this regulates water pressure to the icemaker? is there ice left/stuck in the maker leaving the water no place to go (normally caused when the icemakers element dies)? If so you need a new freezer Ice maker unit. this unit is plug in and only three screws holding it in so this is the easy fix, but not that cheap. cheers

Older Kenmore side by side, freezer warm....again!


"Fuzzy Ice on the back wall" yep, this sounds like a defrost system problem. You say you cleaned this fuzzy ice but, the real ice is behind that wall. I would get it fixed but call several service people and get a price. My guess is that once the defrost system is working then the Ice maker will work. If the freezer is not getting cold enough then the Ice maker won't work.

Now, the drain can cause a problem too but this is an easy fix. Pull out the bottom drawer in the freezer, look in the back under the cooling coils and you should see the drain hole. Keep this area clear of Ice and any thing else. Some tubing with a little air pressure will usually clear any blockage. A little hot water down that drain won't hurt. The water should drain to the a plastic pan under the Ref. Take the front grate off at the bottom of the Ref, look in the pan to make sure it went through.

This should be checked often, once a month or so.

Water leaking from freezer door and ice maker not gettin water


Check the fill tube for the ice maker and make sure it is in the correct place. This sounds like the fill tube has been moved and is running water into the freezer instead of the ice maker. Let me know what you find. I am here to help you.

Water dispenser fine but ice maker not working


Hi. A good way to check the ice maker water solenoid valve is to swith the wire lead from the dispenser water solenoid valve to the ice maker water solenoid valve. Now push the water dispenser lever and water should come out your ice maker fill tube. If not, either the fill tube is frozen or the ice maker water solenoid valve is bad. Take the 1/4 inch tube that runs up the back of your freezer off at the ice maker water solenoid valve and blow thru it. If you can't, the tube is frozen. If you can, the valve is bad. Good luck, Mack
