Why did the ice maker stopped making ice


You have two sides to the water control valve so look inside your ice maker and see if after the last ice harvest your ice maker refilled with water. If half full or empty try filling the ice maker with tap water up to the top of the the ice maker. If the ice maker dumps the ice after the water freezes then does not refill with water this will point to the WR57X10051 Dual Water Inlet Valve If the ice maker does nothing once filled with tap water will point to the WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly and will be better to repace. I will be here should you have more questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Whirlpool ED5VHEXVQ03 side by side. Ice maker is not making ice. Checked water line - okay. Checked water valve - okay. Water filling tray - okay.


Whirlpool Ice Makers are about the hardest working part on your refrigerator and their average life is about five years. You can fill the tray with tap water if the ice slots are already empty and let the water freeze. If after the water freezes and the ice drops to ice bin then the water control valve.

Click Here=> 4389177 Water Inlet Valve will need replaced. You mentioned the water is filling the tray OK then my focus would be on the ice maker.

I have a ge sig=de by side refrigerator and it has


Your model came with an electronic ice maker. If trays are empty tour on and fill with tap water. After it freezes if it cycles and dumps but does not refill with water the the problem will be the side of the water control valve on rear of the refrigerator that controls the water to ice maker. If the water freezes and does nothing then you may need to shop around for a new ice maker. Part number is WR30X10093 for the Ice Maker and WR57X10032 for the Water Control Valve. Let me know what you find or ask questions, Thanks, Sea Breeze

My icemaker is not working. Water not filling tray


Probably the valve that feeds water to the ice maker leaks and this water freezes up at the filling tube to the ice maker and the water doesn't go through, but if the filling tube is not frozen and the ice maker doesn't call for water the problem is in the ice maker inside board ,if so you should replace the ice maker.

New rivl icecream maker


Hi Sunshine!

Here is a recipe from: http://recipes.lovetoknow.com/wiki/Category:Ice_Cream_Recipes

Ingredients for Vanilla Ice Cream, No. 2
  • 3 cups cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
Instructions
  1. No. 2 Recipe, Whip two cups of the cream; to the thin part that drains from the whip add 1 cup of cream and 1 cup of milk, the sugar, and scald thoroughly.
  2. Cool and add the flavoring.
  3. Freeze till soft mush, then add the whipped cream.
  4. Turn the freezer as fast as possible for five minutes; remove dasher, repack and let stand thirty minutes before serving.
I remember sitting on Grandpa's old hand-crank ice cream maker
as a kid, holding it down for Grandpa! Add ice to the maker in about 4" increments, layering in between with a good sprinkling of rock salt (lowers the freezing point of water, so the saltwater solution is actually below freezing), crank until the motor won't turn, then CAREFULLY remove the paddles (DON'T CONTAMINATE the ice cream with the brine solution!) cover the top with plastic wrap or wax paper and let it "firm up" for 15-30 minutes. Then enjoy a great old-fashioned treat!!! Hope this helps, let me know how it goes, and good luck and happy eating! -WB

Ice maker doesn't work


When you say you are getting water do you mean you are getting water in the ice maker tray? If so then unfortunately you will need to replace the ice maker. If not getting water to the ice maker then make sure the fill tube to the ice maker isn't frozen shut. If so, thaw it out and see what happens. If it isn't frozen shut then replace the ice maker. New ge ice makers, when installed, will not cycle until the ice maker gets below freezing so you will have to wait once it is installed.
