Ice Maker Not Working

Hi, sorry it's been a while but I posted a problem I had with my ice maker and you were very helpful so I was hoping you could help me again.

I got a new module as you suggested but I can't get the ice maker to start working again. I tried jumpering it but it still won't start.

I tried it according to your instructions but I'm not sure if I'm following the procedure properly so I was hoping you could help me through it.

Sorry to bother but any help would be appreicated. Thank you.

Vik, If this is a indoor Ice maker with the infrared boards, make sure that the boards are working correctly. With the door open, on the right side you should have 2 flashes with a pause, this should happen repeatedly. Now holding the left side immiter flap down, the light should stay on steady. This of course holds true when the ejector blades are in the home position, 2:00. If this checks out jump start the ice maker by removing the thing and setting it on the shelf, harness still attached. Unplug the refer. Insert a jumper to T & H and leave it in. Close the freezer door. Plug the refer back in and wait 50 seconds. Open the door and see if the module is cycling. If not, press the door switch in 3 times while holding the left side immiter blade in. You may have to try this several times to get it going. Once going, pull the jumper out and place the module cover back on and slide it back into it's rail. It has to work sooner or later. I have had bad modules sent to me and stood there baffled when I could not jump start them. Tried another module and it started right away. Let me know if it did it's thing, Catriver

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.

Neff K3990 American style fridge ice maker is not producing ice


The ice maker unit give the command to the water valve to relese water for a short time.
you cna check with volt meter on the water volve that got the pip go to the ice maker unit if it getting 120V for short time when the fingers of the ice maker making full round.
if you get 120v the problem is the valve (the ice maker and the water have difrent water path so its difrent valve used) if you dont get 120v or the fingers of the ice maker not turning then its your ice maker unit need to be replace.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Kenmore side by side refrigerator freezer not making ice


sorry if i sounded rude i just couldn't read the entire post it just trailed off...
if it not the water valve then it is either the ice-maker is bad or the waterline going to the ice-maker is frozen or clogged.
sometimes the water valve will slowly leak a small amount of water to the ice-maker and this will freeze in the large tube going to the ice-maker from the back of the refrigerator. this will block any more water from coming thru.
hope this helps

Kenmore Ice Maker


I just noticed you had posted a question to me. Apparently the FixYa notification thing is not working to notify me. I figure you have already gotten the ice maker working by now but if you have not I am happy to help.
Most likely cause of your problem is the ice maker motor MODULE probably is bad. If you remove the white cover and find the white driven gear is not flatly snug against the module face or if you remove the module and find any burned contacts it is bad. If you find burned contacts you probably will have to replace the whole ice maker. While you have the ice maker out of the refrigerator be sure to check the condition of the coating on the ice maker mold. If it is peeling you will want to replaced the complete ice maker.
I really hope this has been of some help to you.
