Ice maker will not push out ice cubes once frozer

We have thawed entire unit to clear possible "ice jams".
Turned back on, ice tray fills with water, ejector arms up and functional.
Ice freezes, ejector arm starts to cycle but gets to the ice cubes and gets "stuck".
The ejector arm doesn't appear to have enough umph to push the ice out of the tray - however something is trying to cycle the ejector arm because i can hear a knocking sound.
I see in a parts manual on-line the ice cubes are made in an ice cube mold and heater assembly - is the heater part not coming on to loosen the ice cubes from the tray??
Solutions???

That means that the evaporator fan system that releases the the ice cubes is not working as it should.

The heater, or evaporator fan and heating system must be checked, and fan, or solenoid, or element must be replaced.

Use the number listed on the owner manual if you want to call a technician.

Ice maker on refrigerator does not work at all


Notwithstanding the ABSENCE of MAKE+MODEL...
(REFRIGERATER or ICEMAKER)...

Nothing came through with your "question"... ERGO

Most, generally & typically should be in front of everything that looks or sounds like a FACT.

Every ICE MAKER (I've ever worked on)has an on/off control...
Find it... turn it off, on, off & on several times (cycle the switch
(like lower the FILL wire ... or operate the on/off switch)).

ICE-MAKER heads are a relatively simple device with motor driven electro-mechanical sequencers that time water fill (adjustable), cube "done-ness" ((firmness by adjustable temperature)... and then "operate the fill valve... fill the tray...
Rotate the tray and eject the cubes.. refill with water...

If you can see or feel ice in your TRAY your...
you have NO ISSUE with your WATER VALVE...

To test this... use an ordinary water bottle and Put some water in your ICE TRAY...

Check back in an hour ...if your cubes have been NOT deposited into your ice bin... your ice-maker is turned off, has a open fuse or is defective & needs repair.

If it has ejected your cubes but you have not been refilled your WATER VALVE is defective...
replace it.

Hope this helps.

Water leaking than freezing on floor of lower draw under ice maker in subzero 700tf freezer


If cubes are very large the ice maker may be overfilling and need the fill adjusted to allow less water into the maker. Otherwise check the fill tube (runs from the back wall to ice maker) for loose connections or cracked tubing. (In this instance the cubes would be smaller than usual.) If neither of these is the source, then look up to the highest point of ice (water flows downhill) for the origin. Suspect a stopped up defrost drain. Thaw and clear ice, then clear drain tube (DO NOT use a wire for this) with warm water and a turkey baster. Once water is flowing through tube and into drain pan under the unit the problem should be solved.

Ice tray won"t fill with


Ice maker stopped making ice. For this problem you have check few things. First thing, is the water filling in the ice maker chamber and then ice maker not making ice? Or, the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber so it's not making ice. If the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber then it's clear that ice is not getting made due to no water in the chamber. For no water filling, the problem is either water supply valve turned off so water is not filling. Turn on the water supply and it will fill. But if the water supply is turned on then the other possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from which the water runs and enters the ice maker chamber. If this tube is blocked then water will not enter the chamber. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is water valve at the back of ice maker unit. This water valve is for letting the water in the ice maker. The water valve open only for 7 seconds and in this time the water fills in the ice maker chamber and then water valve closes and the same procedure runs again in the next water filling cycle.------- For your information I will mention that there are two valves. One is the main valve the back of the fridge section. This main valve lets the water enter the refrigerator and other valve is at the back of ice-maker section. This other valve lets the water to enter the ice maker. In most of the cases the fault is water valve at the back of ice maker section. ------------- The other above possibilities which I gave you is water not filling in ice-maker chamber so it's not making ice. But now consider that water is filling in ice maker chamber but it's still not making ice. Then the problem is ice maker unit itself. This unit is controlled by main board. But in most cases if water is filling the ice maker but it's not making ice then its faulty ice maker unit. So see if the problem is water not entering the ice maker then the water fill tube is frosted by ice or the water valve at the back of ice maker is faulty. Replace the valve. ------------

You can get required parts from sears part direct online site or from repairclinic.com site.

This will help. Thanks. Helpmech.

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.

Ice Maker Infrared light doesn't light


Each mold tray has a heating element that is turned on to free the ice cubes from the mold tray and allow them to fall into the ice bucket when the tray is rotated into harvest position. Sounds like that is not being turned on... or is defective..

I removed the entire unit again, looked at it, removed the front cover, and decided I wasn't going to take anything else apart. When I reinstalled it in the refrigerator, it started working again. Possibly the wire connectors just needed plugging in the clean them again.

Samsung Ice Maker on Mdl RB215LASH


It is quite possible the water line near the ice-maker is frozen. I would try a warm hair drier to thaw it out.

Sub zero 532 ice maker


When my repair tech came out, he showed me that the fill tube sometimes retracts toward the rear of the freezer. He simply pulled it forward with a pair of needle nose pliers until it rested in the delivery reservoir. This placement allows the detector to know when the tray is full and shut off; thus not overfilling the freezing tray and/or splashing additional water onto the freezer wall and into the ice cube drawer.
