Hi,
pushing the bar to the down position should make ice...lifting it all the way up will stop the ice production...

Make sure the bar that comes from the top of the ice maker is down. The bar is hit & raised when you open & close the freezer.

Removed ice bucket to clean & now unable to return it into freezer how is this done?


Lift the ice level bar to the up position, the bucket should easily slide back in place. Make sure to drop the ice level bar back into down position to allow for ice to be made.

My refrigerator in the bar has stopped making ice. Model 245


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

How to make the ice maker work on my whirlpool side x side refrigator there is a bar above the ice box dispenser should it be up or down?


when the bar is up...it's off..
it's a sensor that will lift up as the ice tray gets full... otherwise you might have a freezer full of cubes!

So if it's up, it's off...
Cooooooool huh?

Sorry for the pun... but it's Sunday!

Ice cube maker just stopped working. Ice cube arm has no tension to it.


If you can find someone that will take yours apart and rebuild the components inside the front of the ice maker would be good. The problem is with older ice makers you may over look the next part to fail. Your model has a tricky spring that helps the arm lock into place. You can visit our site or call the toll free number and get free help and advice. If you can locate your refrigerator model number that will also be helpful Their numbers always look like this for example 213.54698

Icemaker not producing ice


Most automatic ice makers have a lever (looks like a piece of wire) that is prevented from being in the down position when the bin is full. This stops the ice maker from producing ice when not needed. The lever can also be lifted manually to a locked up position which turns the ice maker off as well. If the lever is in the up position, simply press down on it, it should release and return to the down position. Once down, the ice maker will begin producing ice again (the unit will have to complete its cycle before you see any ice, normally a couple hours or less). Hope this helps.

Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating.

My fridedaire side-by-side only gives crushed ice even when cube ice button is chosen


take the ice bucket out of the freezer
from the back of the ice bucket, there is a little metal bar that stickes out (back left bottom)
that little metal bar inserts into a hole with a spring loaded 'up/down' mechanism...this is stuck UP, and needs to be jiggled with your finger to spring down.
Once that mechanism inside the hole springs down, the ice maker will go back to producing whole ice cubes.

Kenmore Coldspot Ice maker is not working on our side by side refrigerator


Just above the tray that holds the ice cubes is a wire bar. If the bar is down, it will make ice. If the bar is up, it will stop making ice. When there is enough Ice in the tray, when the bar comes downm, it will hit the ice. If the bar is not completely down, no ice will be made.

I bet the bar is stuck, or you don't have a water supply to make ice (or it's plugged - de-ice the freezer).
