Good day,
You will have to remove the ice maker. Usually 2 screws or clips on top and one screw on the bottom, as well as the plug that supplies the electrical power.
Since you'll need a new arm anyway, I would suggest you take the ice maker to any decent sized appliance parts house, and see if they'll pull the the old stub out and install a new control arm.
If that doesn't work, you'll need to replace the whole ice maker.
If you want to see if you can remove the stub yourself, unsnap the front cover. You'll see a semi-solid state type board. It is held in with 3 screws. Remove those, pull the board off, and inspect the area we are talking about. You might be able to get it out, but if not, go back to my first suggestion.

My BI98 u-line ice machine won't stop making ice even with bin arm up.


I would suspect the switch controlled by the tray full sensing arm/bail. That's kind of like the main power switch for the ice maker. You can remove the outer cover from the ice maker with the power unplugged! Then look at the mechanical operation of that lever as it relates to the switch. The lever should cause the switch to open and shut off the timer motor. Some times you can buy the timer separately otherwise you replace the whole icemaker. Don't forget to remove power and turn off the water before you remove the old icemaker.

Samsung refrig model rf26xaebp stopped making ice but i still bet water thru the door


The solonoid valve for the ice maker may be faulty or the icemaker may be froze up. Try thawing out the icemaker with a hair dryer. If thats doesn't fix the problem you may have to replace the soloniod or ice maker control. Be sure the arm above thre the ice bin is in the down position. Hope this helps.

Frigidaire FRS6LR5E ice maker won't stop making ice


Ice maker wire signal arm is being held down by some item in the freezer. Move item and release wire signal arm. Any ice cubes that are frozen together over the wire signal arm. the ice rises in the ice bucket and pushes the wire signal arm up and this is what stops ice production as ice is used then arm comes down and starts ice production all over again. if there is nothing holding arm down then you will need to replace ice maker.

The ice maker does not make ice anymore


There's no ice If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order: It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.
thanks.

Icemaker want stop making ice


The quick answer is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed.
If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board.
If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker.
You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.
Post back if you need instructions on reparing it.

Inoperative Ice Maker


The icemaker stops working because excessive water gets into the control box(where circuit board is housed) through the shaft hole of "finger" and freezes the wheels to turn the "ice-bucket-full detector rod". This stops to send the signal to open water valve.
To fix, remove the icemaker from the wall (need remove two screws - make sure power switch is OFF) and carefully separate the snap-on cable (retangular shape) and a ground cable on the bottom side of the icemaker. (Now you can remove the icemaker out of the refrigerator).
You can open the contol box (need unscrew one and carefully prop it open using a screw driver or a knife. You can unplug color corded snap-on cables for easiness to work (very simple).
You will see ice formed around the plastic gear wheel controlling the "ice-bucket-full detector rod". Remove all ice and dry all the parts in the box and put them back. Make sure all the cable are back to the matching color receptable(only fits in the right place). Connect the cable(rectangular shape) and connect the ground cable. Mount the incemaker on the wall using two screws you removed at first.
Turn the power ON and reset the system by press down the ice cube size selector until the "fingers" make a full cycle. You will see the metal rod moves up and down as system resets. During this cycle the water will be filled into the icemaker.
I believe this icemaker has a design flaw but it's very simple to correct the problem you are experiencing. You do not need much electronic or mechanical knowlege to fix this.
Best wishes
