All buttons on front of fridge work fine, all lights do their thing & all buttons do their thing EXCEPT for the actual cup dispensor button... no ice, no water. We replaced the entire unit containing...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,
When both ice and water in door do not function the most probably suspect is the door / light switch. This switch is usually under $10.00 and is supposed to turn on the light when the actuator is extended and provide power for the water in door and the ice maker when the actuator is depressed. Your door switch is under the plastic TOP freezer door hinge cover and is item 406A of this diagram:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/LG-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-LSC26905TT/3204/0165000/50031613/00003?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

PN: 6600JB3007B ($7.99) (Net image search the PN)

Image: http://www.rcappliancepartsimages.com/dbimages/00003487/01049105.jpg

The switch should have 3 wires on it labeled as follows:
C = Common (Power in)
NO = Power for water and ice in door when switch is actuated
NC = Power for the light when the door is open

If the actuator arm is damaged on this switch it will not function properly. But... it can just be a bad switch also.

Power off / unit unplugged continuity checks would be:
C to NC door open
C to NO door closed.

The cover is removed by carefully lifting up and outward on the side of the hinge cover. Place a putty knife on the top surface of the refrigerator so you don't scratch up the paint. Then use the screwdriver against the putty knife to coax off the hinge cover to gain access to the switch.
Inspect the wiring where it goes through the door also. This type of door switch wiring is notorious for wire chaffing where it passes through the chassis. Gently lift the wires up just enough to inspect for shorts. Then push them back into the unit.

One other thing to inspect is item 271 (Hinge lever.) It can be broken.

I really think this switch is what is causing your water in door and ice maker not to function. Just looking at images this switch may only have 2 wires on it but I still believe this is causing your problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Water dispenses from frig but ice maker is not producing any ice. We've adjusted the temp up and down and it isn't doing any good. Any suggestions on what else to check?


Before you adjusted the temps, were you having cooling issues? If you were, those cooling issues would need to be resolved in order for your ice maker to function properly.
If you had no cooling issues, the first thing i always ask is when did you last change your water filter, assuming you have one. If you dont have one or it was changed recently, then do the following. Turn the ice maker off for at least one hour, then watch to see if it begins to cycle, the angled row of teeth will rotate. Some models will not operate if the door is open, so close the door light switch while you observe the ice maker. If the ice maker cycles, but gets no water, the ice maker solenoid valve will need to be replaced. If the valve needs to be replaced, you may sometimes find the fill tube that directs water into the ice maker is frozen with ice, this will have to be cleared manually for proper function. If the ice maker does not cycle when you turn it on, you have a bad ice maker or there is a wiring problem with your ice maker system.

in the past i have seen this happen when the ice ben is emoved and the drive impeller is not seated properly usually due to ice ect. Its a pain but take out the ben and see if the motor turns normally. you can hold the door switch closed by hand and have someone push the button for ice if the motor turns you have the problem i have said. If not your door switch is bad and needs to be replaced it controlls the power to the bulb and the ice maker motor. You can pop the door switch out with a flatblade screw driver but have a replacement on hand wire plug into the back of it the switch is an on off switch.

Maytag sidebyside MSD2758DRW ice maker won't make ice


Hi,

If the ice maker no longer make ice, check the following.

Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on.

On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice.

Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Thanks

My ice maker makes plenty of ice, no problem with the water either. My problem is that the auger will not turn to dispense the ice out of the bin. The motor kicks on when you push in the buttom, however it...


Pull the ice bucket out, then hold in on the door light switches and while you push a glass into the button for ice (may require two people). Ice dispenser and auger will only work, when you push for ice, when the freezer door is closed, so by holding the light switch(s) in the off position with door open you can simulate door being closed. If you can push the button and see the auger drive turn (with ice bucket out) then check to see if you have some ice stuck between the blades on the bucket, if the auger motor doesn't turn, it may be "ice frozen". Common problem. Remove motor, let sit on counter for about three hours and then reinstall, if it then works then check for water dripping from the fill tube, where the water comes into freezer for the ice maker, and see if it is dripping onto auger motor.

If you put auger motor back in and it still won't turn then more and likely you need an auger motor.

Let me know.

The Kenmore Ice maker makes no ice. This is a side by side unit. The freezer is very cold. The water solenoid is not faulty, but is not turning on so the problem must be in the electronic ice level...


Good chance the water line near the ice maker motor is frozen. Thaw out the freezer for about 6 hours - move your frozen stuff to the refrig - ot should be OK - then back again after thawing. This alnost always works.

No water in ice maker


check water supply
check water valve
check for frozen water tank
check if the ice maker is calling for water by cycling the ice maker (remove cover, put jumper wire between holes marked T and H close door switch and let ice maker advance till it clicks, remove jumper wire, close door and give it several minutes to activate water valve, if it never does you need a new ice maker.

The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.


Hello jitkagardner,
Welcome


You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

How old is the fridge?
When have you last changed the water filter.
Should be down below at the front grille!
Try these tasks!

If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice
Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
• Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
• Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
• New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
• Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer
compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not
close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely."
• Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
• Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
• Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and
operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may
be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it
correctly.
• Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.

Let me know how it goes!

Superba ice maker stopped working, door water still dispensing


Use a cup of water and just fill the ice cube maker with enough water for the first batch and the sensor will then begin making ice again.
My ice cube maker stopped working after I changed the filter. After reading countless posts about wiring and defrosting and using a blowdryer into the fill line I emptied my freezer and fridge, then unplugged it. I got no results after two days. I finally just put some water in the ice cube maker (the metal ice cube tray below the white plastic fingers that forms the cubes) plugged it back in and closed the door for a few hours and it worked. I wonder if I needed to defrost the unit at all. It was working before I changed the filter, then the filter was full and stopped water from flowing (or decreased the flow dramatically anyway).
Good Luck
