Hi,


If the ice maker has completely stopped producing ice :-


Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.


The ice maker is producing ice poorly:-


When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

If you push the tab for water any you hear a buzzing or humming sound with no water then it could be you water pump which is located at the back of the fridge.

Either the freezer temperature is too high or the internal thermostat inside the ice maker is faulty.
The freezer temp must be 5 degrees or less for the ice maker to work correctly.
If the freezer checks out OK you will need to replace the ice maker.

The ice maker in my Whirlpool Gold refrigerator has stopped making ice. There is ice in the tray, but it won't empty itself.


If the " tray " you are refering to , is the ice maker mold , then clean the coils in the front , under the refrig ( condensor coils ) . Also check the fan behind the refrig , to make sure it is working . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees to cycle . Bothe the coils and the fan , have to be checked to be sure the freezer is at the correct temp for the ice maker to opperate properly . If both are ok , then replace the ice maker .

Fill the ice maker with water. If it freezes and dumps the the water control valve on rear of the refrigerator and near floor is defective and will need replace. If the water just freezes then the ice maker thermostat is the problem, Let me know,Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice maker stopped working and no Water in Ice maker,,,


I had this same thing happen and I just fixed it! After returning from a long trip, I threw out the old ice (now mostly shrunk), but no new ice was being made. The tray where the ice is made was completely empty/dry (maybe any ice cubes there had "shrunk" away to nothing as well? perhaps part of what keeps the freezer "frost free"?).

So I filled the tray with water using a small measuring cup -- which is what the manufacturer suggests when the refrigerator is new. Now it's making ice again just fine! This might or might not work for you, but trying it won't cost you anything.

My ice maker is leaking and would not stop making ice.


MAKE SURE THAT THE WATER SUPPLY SOLENOID VALVE IS NOT STUCK OPEN BY DEBRE. AS FOR THE HAIR DRIER ??? THERE IS A LIMIT T-STAT THAT PREVENTS THE ICE-CUBE MAKER HEATER WIRES OR PLATE FROM OVER HEATING. MAKE SURE TO LET THE IT COOL-OFF TO RE-SET THE SAFTY SWITCH. YOU CAN CHECK TO SEE IF SOLENOID IS ENERGIZED BY PLACING A METAL BUTTER KNIFE CLOSE TO THE TOP OF THE SOLENOID... YOU SHOULD FEEL THE MAGNETIC PULL FROM THE SOLENOID. ALWAYS MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE ADEQUATE WATER GOING INTO AND OUT OF THE WATER SOLENOID VALVE ... USUALLY LOCATED BEHIND THE FRIG WHERE THE ICE MAKER IS LOCATED.
