There three problem that will not make your ice maker to make ice.
If the water’s route is blocked or the solenoid
If the bail wire is lifted—the ice maker won’t make ice.
Your home’s water pressure must be strong enough to
serve an ice maker.
For your ice maker to maker ice, be sure the bail wire above the ice tray is in the
If the ice maker doesn’t make ice but you can see the
arm swing into motion and you hear a buzz for about 10 seconds after it
is finished, the water valve is asking for water that isn’t arriving.
This means the valve and the solenoid are probably okay, but the water
supply is not. Be sure the water supply line isn’t kinked behind or
beneath the refrigerator (1/4-inch copper tubing is much better than
plastic fill line).
Also,check to see if something has caused ice to back up
around the mechanism—this can cause the fill tube to freeze, blocking
the mechanism. When ice cubes are small and seem to be getting smaller,
it generally indicates a frozen fill tube.
Check the water line that enters the back of the
freezer for a blockage. Find the water shut-off valve behind the
refrigerator or under the sink, turn it off, unscrew the copper line
from the back of the refrigerator, put the copper line in a bucket, turn
on the valve, and see if pressurized water pours out.
water line attaches to a solenoid at the back of the refrigerator and
then travels to the ice maker. The solenoid may be defective or may not
be receiving power. You can try removing the sediment screen inside the
solenoid and flushing it with water to clean it, and at the same time
you can inspect any seals or diaphragms to ensure that they are sound.
Unplug the refrigerator first.
Check the tap valve; a bad tap valve may cause the
problem where the ice maker supply tube connects to the water pipe. If
necessary, replace the inlet valve and the tap valve. For the tap valve,
use the type that requires you to drill a 1/4-inch hole (as opposed to
the “self-piercing” type). You can do this yourself, or call a repair person or plumber to install an inline water filter when replacing
