Is the bail arm in the down position? Is the ice maker connected to its power supply? check to see that the harness is plugged in all the way. Check the temperature of the freezer. Freezer temp must come down to 5°F for the ice maker to make ice.

Why is my ice maker filling up my ice tray with water then freezing it like a block of ice?


There are some adjustments that you can do if you carefully follow the instructions in the video below. I also have a Whirlpool Ice Maker Troubleshooting and Service Manual upon request. Your 67003753 Water Inlet Valve=> 67003753 Water Inlet Valve could be leaking and creating this block of ice. For most Whirlpool/Maytag brand ice makers is is cheaper to replace the core module part number=> D7824706Q Ice Maker Module. Reason being the individual parts add up to more than the cost of all those parts together. Now if interested you can request a Whirlpool Ice Troubleshooting Service Manual by filling out the capsha=> HERE Reason I don't place the manual's here because Whirlpool ask me not to do so, but I will be glad to send you one. The manual is the solution but the most complete module or replacing water valve is the cheapest route. Below is how it is explained a little simpler. If I can help you in any way please ask, Thanks, Sea Breeze
If helpful please rate this solution.

Water drips from both ends of the ice maker ice maker. Ice maker does not appear to have a crack in. Could you tell me how to fix it? Is a GE model 3 PSC23SHMD BS


Most likely your water control valve=> WR57X10032 Water Control Valve RC This page has great instructions also. Many things can affect your ice maker so I will send this movie about ice maker related problems.

I will put it like this, if you can unplug the ice maker from rear wall of freezer and water continues to flow replace water valve. If only when ice maker is plugged in then the ice maker electronics and replacing the ice maker would be your best bet, Thanks, Sea Breeze

My freezer is not freezing anymore please help as can not afford a new one ..thank you


Hi,
Follow the steps mentioned below to solve the problem:
First remove the ice bin and look inside the mold of the ice maker to see if it is full of ice. If the ice sensing arm is down ( on position) and the ice maker is full of ice, there is a failure inside the ice maker and the ice maker should be replaced.
If there is no ice in the ice maker, look at the fill tube on the rear of the ice maker. If the fill tube is frozen up the ice maker can't fill.
You can defrost the fill tube with a hair dryer.
The water valve on the rear of the refrigerator supplies water to the water dispenser and the ice maker. Since the water dispenser is working, the only line that could be blocked runs up the back of the cabinet and attaches to the fill tube for the ice maker. The water valve could be bad and not sending water to the ice maker.
If the fill tube freezes again you should replace the water valve.
Hope this helps.

My filter let the water go slower and slower and the ice maker quit working. I replaced the filter and cycled the power on the ice maker but still won't make ice. Please help.


The temperature in the freezer has to get down to around 6 degrees. If the temperature is correct than remove cover on ice maker and see if it is moving, I may take a few minutes to actually see it move. It sounds like the filter problem may have damaged the inlet valve or ice maker or even possible both. Check to see if Ice maker still cycles. You can also check to see if the inlet valve is good by switching the hoses from water dispenser and ice maker. Press the water dispencer for a few seconds and see if it sends water into the ice maker. Any further assistance please contact me back.

Ice maker water keeps running


Please keep in mind that I am attempting to diagnose a problem with your appliance without being there and with very little information.
My first guess is you will need to replace the water valve. How fast is the water coming out. If it's a trickle, you have a bad water valve. If it is flowing as hard as it flows when the ice maker calls for water,
there could be a problem with the switch inside you ice maker is bad and continues send a signal to the valve to keep sending water. You can check this by unplugging the ice maker from inside the freezer and if the water valve stops sending water. You will need to replace the part inside the ice maker or replace the whole ice maker.
Please rate solution

Ice maker is not making any ice - appears it may be frozen due to door not being shut properly. Should we unplug and try to defrost /melt any build up, if thats the problem?


You may remove the ice maker and thaw it out. Let it dry and try again. Sometimes ice makers get caught between cycles and sometimes after taken out the dried and replaced they will again work. (Not Always) Let me know what happens and if you have problems please let me know, Please send your refrigerator model number, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker won't send water to unit. Solenoid is good


Make sure the fill tube where the water goes into the ice mold is not full of ice. Your old valve may have been leaking and it will freeze in the fill tube. Other than than maybe start the ice maker working by filling it with water and see if it dumps and refills.
You can swap the wires on the inlet valves and try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker letting you know the valve works and the line is clear.
