Ice maker wont work


The ice maker gets its water from the filter too. If there is NO water getting to the ice maker then look at the solenoid that lets the water into the ice maker. If water seems to be frozen to the underside of the Ice maker, take the unit out and allow it to dry before putting it back in.

Ice maker quit, water still dispenses


even though you still have water dispensing you may have a frozen line to the ice-maker, take out your ice-maker and check to see if the feeder tube has ice in it, take a drinking straw and insert it into the feeder tube for the ice-maker and see if you can push it all the way to the valve, it's lite enough not to damage the feeder and strong enough to break up whatever Ice might be blocking the tube

Ice maker is not working


1. Check that Bailer Arm is DOWN
2. Put finger up in Ice Maker Mold and check to see if there is Water Filled in the Ice Cavity (just where the ice is pushed up and out of the Ice Maker Mold)
3. If no water.... Take about 4 screws off Ice Maker and take out, careful to not tear rubber hose in back in Freezing Compartment.
4. Defrost the Ice Maker and reinstall
5. Make sure the Bailer Arm is Down
6. Listen and be sure the water is filling the Ice Maker
7. Allow it time to freeze and dump the load

If that does not do it... Contact me again for the next step.

Hope that helps...

Kindly,

Jim

GE ice maker, solid ice in ice maker


Many ice makers have an adjustment screw behind the front cover that shows plus or minus. Try the minus turn of the screw that should shorten the amount of time the ice maker fills. If electronic please call the company you purchased it from and explain the problem. Sea Breeze

The ice maker works, I poored water directly to the ice maker and it works, don't understand what you mean with alligator clips, should i just take the hose leading to ice maker off, the intake water valve...


Wrong! ok what it is you have a double water valve. 1 valve goes to the ice maker and one goes to the water dispensor. what you need to do is take the valve that goes to the ice maker by tracing the water line from ice maker to the valve and jump it direct with 110 volts. if you get water by doing that the ice maker is bad if you dont get no water that way it will be the water valve

Ice maker not making any ice!


it either is the water vavle burned out or the ice make went out usualy that is a common problem when the line freezes up to test the ice maker there take the front cover off ice maker then there should be two holes in the front a hole that has m and the on next to it put a jumper wire in that hole if it dont rotate the ice maker is bad. or if it is the other kind of ice maker take a flat head screw driver and turn the screw with on the motor gear clock wise keep turning it until it runs on its own you should get the same results like the above if ice maker test good the water vavle is bad check make sure you have no restrictions in the water line take the line off the vavle and let it run in a bucket to see what kind of water pressure you have it should come out fast

Ice maker hasn't worked in years. A couple of days ago food below the ice maker was thawed. Today I felt that the ice maker was hot to the touch. Is there anyway to disengage the power to the ice make


Yes you will need to take the screws that mount the Ice maker to the side of the freezer and unplug the cable plug that is hidden behind the back of ice maker. The only time that element is needed to become hot is the moments before the ice maker drops ice. Thanks, Sea Breeze
