My ice maker keeps sticking. I have to get a hair drying out every day to release the ice from the bottom. i tried putting olive oil into the tray so it would lubricate the metal but no luck either.

It sounds like the water inlet for your ice maker is now frozen. Blast a hair dryer around the waterinlet to the ice maker for 5-10 minutes, reconnect the ice-maker and you should hear the sweet sound of flowing water

Ice tray jammed sideways in samsung fridge freezer


Have you tried using a hair dryer to defrost around the ice tray. Contrary to normal, when ice freezes it expands due to trapped air, this will expand the ice tray. If you heat it the ice will meltmaybe releasing the tray enough to push it around.

Model was bought 1/92. Ice cube maker not working although we hear a churning sound that seems to signal something's trying to work! What do you think? KitchenAid KBRP20EMSS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator


Those ice makers get stuck from frozen ice portions. Try feeling around to see if anything in the icemaker is frozen up or any foreign object. Please do this with fridge unplugged. If you can't find any frozen or other obstruction then use the hair dryer to defrost the ice maker. This is only a guess from past experiences. My kids once put pop cicle sticks in the ice maker wanting to make ice cube on a stick. Goodluck Google burdfrenzy

KitchenAid ice dispenser tray is dry - not working


Put some water in the ice mold is what I would try. wait and see if the ice maker harvest a batch. If it does drop a batch but no more then the water valve is probably shot. The ice maker itself controls the water. It does this by filling the ice mold for 7.5 seconds. Here is your Ice maker repair manual and some repair photos along with a pictorial which snows how to check the water valve.

The fix to your problem is to remove the ice, warm up the tray with a hair blow dryer and thoroughly dry it. Then spray it with PAM cooking spray which is an edible lubricant. After that dries, turn on the ice maker again and the ice will dispense. Joe

Hello: I hope that you can help. The ice maker on this model (et21dk) is spitting out water as well as cubes. As a result, my tray is a frozen lake of cubes. How do I fix this? Thanks. Ben My...


Ben open your freezer section and reach to the very back and top of your ice maker where the water inlet tube is located. Use your finger and check for ice formation near the end of the water inlet tube where the ice maker plastic water channel is.

If there is ice in that area unplug your unit and use a hair dryer to thaw out that area. Try not to keep the hot air blowing in the same place when your using the hair dryer so as not to melt any plastics. This some times just happens all by it self that there is ice formation in the water inlet area. While the unit is unplugged use the hair dryer to free your ice tray also.

Once you restart the unit it can take longer than usual before you have ice cubes again. Not more than 1 day. If you continue to have ice formation in your freezer section then your ice maker has and internal failure of either the water control micro switch or actuation lever. The ice maker can be repaired but the cost will be about 60 percent of the cost of a new icemaker..

Remove door and icemaker from bottom freezer model 59673914200 -- icemaker wont turn


The ice maker switch had come unattached due to excess ice buildup, and frozen to the ice pack. The ice in the ice maker had also frozen into a solid block due to not being able to rotate. After removing the drawer trays and protecting the frozen food, turning off the refridgerator, I used a hair drier to melt and remove the ice from the ice maker, gave it time to dry out, -- No gears wer stripped,- the ice maker now works normally.

Ice maker problems


the heater on the ice maker has gone bad the easiest way to fix is to replace ice maker.the heater is on the bottom of the maker and heats tray up to harvest ice if it dont the ice will stick.But try taking maker out and cleaning it real good with a light spongee (Scrubee)
let it dry then spray some a light coat of pam (or similar) into ice bins and try that ahrd water will eat the coating off the bins
