Re: Ice Maker not flipping
May very well be a stripped gear in the drive unit. Unplug ice maker and remove mounting screws. Out of the freezer remove front cover and inspect drive gears for damage. Replacement gears should be available through a dealer for you make and model number.

if the ice maker has ice in but will not release / then i would ck the heater that warms the tray . this causes the ice to release then the fingers will remove the during the harves cycle .. when the mold heater is bad it''s best to replace the icemker / mm
Either the icemaker support is broken, DA61-01801A
or the ice tray is damaged or has lime buildup. The ice tray is
supposed to twist when it flips: an off-center stud on the tray catches
the support, while the tray is still turning. If it does twist but does
not release ice - replace or clean the ice tray, part number DA63-02284B
freeze tempt even tho set low / how low is it / must be 0 to 5 deg too work well . it stops at 15 deg .. . make sure both fans are working and the cond coil is clean . .. very important . .. water disp does not work with ice maker . you have a dual valve in the back with two coils . the ice side may have gone bad . if so replace the valve . both sides / only way it comes . hope this helps **** ..
If there is not other problem it will start to work after there is water in the ice mold and it freezes. It will then dump and refill with water.
You can Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then
try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell
you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.
it seems to me (no expert) that you have an ice buildup in the tubing to the freezing portion of that unit. I can only suggest to turn off the Refrigerator for a little while, an hour or two at most, and see if the tubing thaws.
Could be the sensor for the ice maker to fill up....we have a wire bar that flips up when full so it shuts off ....also a piece of ice gets stuck in the plastic fingers somtimes but since you defrosted it that shouldn't be the problem....not sure if you can take the ice maker out yourself ...better call the repair man ...
Hi!!1 in order for the ice harvest the freezer must be atleast 10 degrees make sure..I wish that i knew which brand of frig you have.you are going to have to manually jump start the ice maker and see what happens..Good luck..Let me know model number and serial..
check the very back of the ice maker and see if the piece that holds the rear portion of the ice maker has broken into little pieces causing the tray not to flip. the piece costs around 12 dollars and should be available for the unit that you are talking about.
