Ice maker dumping ice before it's frozen

This is a brand new fridge. Freezer temp is 0 degrees. Water pressure is good. Ice is dumped before it's totally frozen, and water breaks out and freezes all the cubes together. FP suggests the sensor thinks the ice is done and dumps it early. i thought they were on a timer. any ideas? BTW, door closes fine, not much activity, only two people in the house.
thanks,
Bob

My icemaker just stopped making ice - i can feel frozen ice in the top but it doesnt dump any ice out?


Hi, first , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If if freezes , and dumps , replace the water valve. If it does not dump the cubes , replace the ice maker. After pouring the water into the ice maker , remove the bottom kick panel , and clean the bottom coils , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees , to operate , correctly . If ice maker starts working , after cleaning the coils , GREAT ! ( it does happen ) .

Take care

Frigidaire Model # GLRS267dzw2 ice maker isn't filling up with water too make ice.


As every technician knows , a water and ice dispensor refrig , has a dual water inlet valve . Just because the water dispensor works , does not mean the coil for the ice maker is working . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps the frozen cubes , but does not refil with water , check the fill tube inside the freezer , from the wall to the fill cup on the ice maker , to see if it is frozen . If so , replace the dual water inlet valve , due to seeping . This is not closing completely , and letting drips thru , which freeze inside the tube . If the tube is not frozen , then the water inlet valve is bad , not letting water thru to the ice maker .
If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , then the ice maker needs to be replaced . Also check the coils under the refrig , to be sure they are clean of dust , lint , etc , as this will raise the temp above 5 degrees , which is the operating temp , for an icemaker .

Ice maKer is not getting water but the water side works.


Your refrig water valve , has 2 coils on one valve . One is for the water dispensor , and one is for the ice maker . So even if you get water thru the dispensor , the other coil ( for the ice maker ) could be bad . The fill tube from inside the freezer to the ice maker , could be frozen solid , keeping the water from entering the ice maker . This frozen tube , would be caused be the water valve " seeping " , which means , it isn't closing completely , and drips freezing inside the tube . indicating a bad water valve . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps , but doesn't refill with water , replace the water valve but also check this tube . If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , replace the ice maker , but also check the coils under the refrig , for dust , lint , etc , needing to be cleaned off . The ice maker needs to be 5 degrees to operate , and dirty coils can keep the freezer at 6 degrees or above .

Fridge won't make ice


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

My ice maker has quit working. The water is not filling the tray.


Pour 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps the cubes when frozen , then check the fill tube going into the icemaker , to see if it is frozen solid . If it is , remove and clean and replace water valve ( drip seeping ) . If not frozen , replace the wqter valve anyway . If the icemaker doesn't dump the cubes , and holds the frozen ice , replace the icemaker , after making sure the coils under fridge are free of dust , lint , pet hair etc.The icemaker needs to be 5 degrees to operate , and , dirty coils could bring the temp up to 6 or higher in the freezer section .

Ice maker not dumping ice


Hi: Not knowing how long it's been hooked up... Ice production can take as long as 72 hrs to start. Usually 24 to 48 hrs. The freezer also has to be stable at 0 degrees F to start producing ice. The tray mab be full but it wont dump untill 0 degrees F. Another thing is it's human nature to keep opening the freezer to see if Ice has been made. This justs dumps the cold air out and will slow the ice production. Just because your food is frozen dosn't mean it is at 0 degrees F. Ice cream should be rock hard. Try setting your freezer colder and allow 24 hrs for it to stabilize. This is the best try and it usually works, before calling a tech. I hope this helps, Jeff

Frigidaire not dumping the ice


Hi: Dumping the ice is the start of the ice making timer. Before you replace the ice maker... Set the freezer one setting colder. The ice maker wont make ice if the freezer is not at zero degrees F. Just because things are frozen in it dosn't mean it is at zero. This happens a lot in the summertime. After resetting the temp don't open the door every hour to see if it makes ice as you will just dump the cold air out. Listen for the ice to dump, give it 24hrs. I hope this helps, Jeff

GE 25 side by side refrigerator ice maker problem


Assuming the temp inside the freezer is at around 0 or -2 degrees, it should dump ice every ~50 minutes or so. Again, depending on temp's, an Ice Bin should fill within 24 to 48 hours. If your freezer temp is running at around 10 degrees, everything will obviously still be frozen (below 32), but the ice maker will take longer to freeze the water than it would if it were at 0 degrees. Open both doors and place the palm of your hand on the partition between the freezer and Fresh Food compartments... (where the door gaskets seat when they're closed). The temp of the partition should be about 5 or 10 degrees warmer than body temp., If it's hotter than that, you found the problem. Either the condenser coils are dirty and need a good cleaning OR your condenser fan motor (the fan in back, near the floor in the compressor area) is failed or about to fail.
