Hi!
The Ice maker is an independent device and can be removed and fixed separately from your unit. Remove icemaker's two 1/4" hex head fastening screws and unplug the electrical connector. Visually inspect unit looking for broken or loose retainer, arm or strip arm or defective ice mold. Click on the following link to see an exploded diagram with the parts names and prices. If the price of the unit parts amounts to over $100, you may consider replacing the whole unit. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Whirlpool-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-GD5RHAXNB00/1198/0165000/W0409046/00012?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=
Your unit model GD5RHAXNB00 was made by Whirlpool/Westinghouse.

Ice maker stopped working water coming out of front of door. what to do?


There are two sides to a water control valve Cindy. One side for the dispenser and one side for the ice maker. Feel inside the ice maker slots for any remaining ice cubes. If the ice maker has no ice fill with tap water and if after the water freezes and drops the ice into the ice container and then does not refill with water the problem points to the dual water control valve. If the ice just sits in the ice maker and does nothing then this points to a defective ice maker. What is the model number of the refrigerator?

Westinghouse ice maker quit working


Is it your ice maker, or possible the blades that crush the ice or dispense the cubes? What can happen in the latter case is that during the storm the ice melted and pooled in the cutter mechanism. Then, when power was restored, the blades were frozen solid. To fix, investigate taking out the cutter mechanism and letting it thaw and drain. Then reinstall and use frequently for the first few days to prevent refereezimg.

My Frigidaire side-by-side refrigirator is not making ice


Here is a simple tip that may help you decide what is causing this problem. If the ice maker has no ice cubes in the slots fill with tap water and allow water to freeze. If the ice maker cycles and drops the ice into the ice bin and then does not refill with water the problem is the 241734302 Water Inlet Valve (providing that the model number above your post is correct) If the ice maker only sits there with ice in the slots and does nothing the ice maker is the problem 5303918277 Ice Maker Assembly Testing the water control valve is as follows. I will be here to answer any questions you may have, Thanks Sea Breeze

Model 106.57036601 Ice maker quit working couple days ago had water off in whole house, had to repair a water pipe in the restroom.


There are a couple or three ways to test your ice maker and dual water control valve to identify the location of the problem. By looking at what the ice maker did on its last cycle or the lack of a cycle will help a lot. If ice maker has old cubes then the ice maker has not cycled and that tells me that the ice maker has been turned off or it has become defective. Another test is to pour tap water into the empty slots if there was not old cubes there. Allow the water to freeze and if the ice maker cycles and dumps the cubes into the ice container that would indicate a defective dual water valve=> 4389177 Water Valve Kit- Double Outlet The first three numbers of your model tells me it was made by Whirlpool and that tells me that removal of the front cover of ice maker you have test points. If me knowing what I know of ice makers I would be prepared to change both ice maker core=> 2198597 Ice maker - Replacement

Model TFX25PR ; Does the ice cube maker require any lubrication ?


The type ice makers made for your model and other models require no lubrication and are one of the most used parts of your refrigerator especially if there is a large family and lots of ice used daily. They never seem to stop working while the average refrigerator last 15 to 20 years the average life of an ice maker is only 5 years. Even ice makers that have replaceable parts the repair parts are more expensive in most cases than complete replacement. Below is an example of an average ice maker that Whirlpool and Maytag uses that have the Teflon coating in the ice slots. Your model is for GE,=> Model WR30X10093 Ice Maker and has electronic controls and no replaceable parts. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Cubes won't dump into the storage bin


In photo below you can see the heating element that comes on moments before the ice maker drops the ice. If not working then the icemaker will struggle to unload. You need to unplug the refrigerator and then unpluge the ice maker and remove it to test these parts. Test with a multi meter or ohm meter. Test the 2 connections next to the number #26. Hope this helps, Sea Breeze

Ice maker not working Kenmore model 106.55226400


Look for an ice cube lodged in the fingers IM. Get a hair dryer and melt that dude. No ice cube? Add some water to the IM mold. If it kicks out some ice but makes no more then you is gonna need a water valve. If it don't kick out no ice then you is gonna need a ice mold thermostat. Either one is very easy and cheap to fix. let me know Kimosabe.

Lg side by side Ice maker not filling all of the tray/dripping


You may have a restriction in the icemaker.  Remove the icemaker and make sure that there is no ice buildup other than in the cube slots.  Also make sure that the fill tube is clear of any ice obstruction.

Ice Maker Making Noise


I was able to solve this problem by doing the following:

1) Carefully (because there may be sharp metal blades in this area) reached into the upper left compartment of the icemaker and pressed down on ice cubes that seemed to be lodged there and were protruding slightly above the slots they should have been passing through.

2) Press down on the cubes, forcing them through the slots and into the cube container below

3) Lift the metal arm, remove and completely empty the ice cube container

4) Return the ice cube container to the freezer, making sure it is seated properly

Close the freezer and wait until the ice cube maker begins to make new ice cubes. The sound should stop in around 10-15minutes.
