Question about Refrigerators
Found ice dispencing fingers at 4 o'clock position with no water in tray. Unthawd freezer to make sure water line wasn't frozen. Restarted ice maker and water filled tray and fingers went to home (10 o'clock position) Later the fingers were at 4 o'clock position and seemed frozen in the tray. I ran a diagnostic test on the ir system and everything was fine. I jumper thr ice maker and the fingers went to home and water filled the tray also tray was warm during this cycle. And water filled filled the tray. Now fingers are at 4 o'clock again. HELP!
May be an issue with the cam that operates the ice maker. U can pick up a new ice maker for about 40 bucks on ebay.
Lots of things could be bogus. If the solenoid does not open, no water in tray - no ice. If tray does not get warm for fingers, fingers cannot push ice out - no ice. If freezer is not at least 10 degrees, no ice making at all. If cam motor for maker is bogus, anything could be out of whack.
Make sure that the ice maker is in "on" mode.

Is the freezer section below 17 degrees F? Did the ice maker get switched off by accident? Does the ice maker solenoid valve "click" when trying to fill with water?

sounds more like the heater in the ice maker is bad. The cycles of the ice maker are: 1. water comes in to fill ice maker. 2. water freezes in ice maker making. 3. heater comes on to help ice release. 4. motor comes on to eject the ice and start all over again. if the heater doesn't come on the ice will not eject. replacing the icemaker is typically what needs to be done in this case.

I got the same problem where the plate is cold and the water does not fill - saw this comment from other posting and help. Basically, the ice maker was stalled! Make sure you can see the green light is on, which means you have power. if its lit, press and hold the cube size button until i/m starts to cycle. If i/m runs, but does not fill then your water valve is bad. If i/m will not start then your i/m is at fault.
