An ice maker, as you all know is an appliance in your refrigerator's freezer that makes ice cubes. The ice maker receives water through a quarter inch pipe placed behind the refrigerator, which in turn is connected to the water pipe and tap valve. As and when water is needed, the valve lets the water flow through a fill tube into the ice maker assembly and thus, the water gets frozen into ice cubes. A thermostat is attached to the ice maker to monitor the temperature. Once the ice is ready, the ice cubes are pushed by the ejector blades into a bin till it is full. Now that you are aware about the functioning of an ice maker, you need to identify the ice maker problems that might be causing trouble.

With your ice maker not working properly, you might be wondering the reason behind the malfunctioning of your ice maker. Several factors could be involved in case your ice maker is not making any ice at all. It might be caused due to a defect in the water supply line. It could be possible that the water valve isn't getting any water. Check the water line at the back of the freezer for any blockage. Look for the water shut-off valve placed behind the refrigerator or under the sink and turn it off.

Next step would be to unscrew the copper line located at the back of the refrigerator. Now place the copper line in a bucket and turn on the valve to check if pressurized water comes out. The problem could also be linked to a defective tap valve. You could have it replaced. Since, freezer temperature can also be responsible for ice maker malfunctioning, make sure the freezer is not too warm.

Take care.

I have one year old lg 1.5ton window a/c then start a/c that time is colling ok but after 2 & 3 hours all colling coil block by ice.i asked other persion he told high pressure wall is defective plz...

I would let it thaw out and then clean all coils,blower motor,and fan that you can get to. Next I would check line pressures to see if you have enough refrigerant in system. You may have to install self tapping service valves on lines to test them. If you don't have gauges to check them with you will need to call a service tech. Sorry I am not more helpful. Good luck and thank you.

Ice maker is not working - sensor bar rolls up but no ice in ice maker - no water in ine trays

Sound like it is the dual water control only. Try filling ice maker with tap water and then let freeze. If after the ice in the ice maker dumps the cubes into the ice container and does not refill I would think the water control valve is at fault. I see your model had three different choices of water control valves and listed on this page=> Here and in right sidebar about 1/3rd down the page you will see three different water control valves. Here is your Service Manual=> LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator Try this test first because you mentioned no water in trays. Let me know what results you get and if you have more questions feel free to ask, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker quit - LG refrigerator model LFX25960ST, ice maker PN 5989JB0001A

I have the same problem.

Ice in the gears.

Splash from opening and closing the door when liquid water is present seems to be the logical problem.

I had cleared the ice before, thoroughly dried the icemaker and reinstalled it. It worked until I adjusted the icemaker to make large cubes.

I will reinstall it and see how long it last. I will also complain to Sear about the short life of this device.
