    I need a make and model number to properly assist you. There are several things that can cause this:

    1. door switch
    2. automatic defroting problem
    3. water inlet valve
    4. Ice maker thermostat
    5. Ice maker module
    6. Optical emitter board (if equipped)

    With a correct make and model number I can provide you with steps for either repair or troubleshoot your refrigerator.

I do not recommend changing the unit temp setting per the second solution that was provided to you. Having to change the temperature for the unit to make ice is an indication that there are other problems. Experts have to maintain a minimum of an 80% rating to be qualified. Notice that the "Master" that provided you a solution only has a 75% ratng with ZERO people helped.

As I said before with Make and Model number there is a lot of information I can pass to you to try and resolve the problem.

It will take much time to form ice. increase the cold lavel to 7-8 to form much quickly.
Don't forget to lower down the lavel to medium after your ice work.

Model GLH66EESB4 refrigerator. Makes ice but


Remove the ice bucket and auger assembly and hold the door switch closed while pressing the ice dispenser button to check for a dead motor. If it turns, try holding it with your hand to see if it can take a bind. If it will then your auger is the problem, if not it's motor time.

ICE MAKER WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY SHUT OFF


On the ice makers on refridgerators unless the ice in the bucket is high enough to raise the arm on the icemaker it will not shut off. Most people lift the arm up when they see the bucket full. I have the side by side Whirlpool model and on mine if I don't raise the arm the ice will fall out the bucket before it will raise the arm high enough.

check the mirco-switches behind the panel at the dispenser section. basically, when you depress the lever for water or ice, those levers make contact with a switch, and the switch turns on the ice dispenser motor. if the lever is pushed too hard, the switch can be knocked out of position. I had to re-position my ice switch with some duct tape.

Ice dispenser only dispenses crushed ice


Check and make sure your switch is okay. Some have a switch that controls whether you want crushed or cubes. If it is defective replace it.
