Check the water hose. Is it kinked? Is the screen clogged. After a while minerals build up and could have clogged the intake making it hard to get the water necessary to make the ice,

Ge monogram icemaker ZDIW50YB not cutting ice


Is the cutting grid getting warm if just warm make sure you don't have any loose wires supplying power to grid. Check grid cutting transformer to make sure it is working. make sure grid is clean. If you are getting power to cutting grid and it's not getting warm then cube let cutter grid is bad. If this needs to be replaced you might thank about a new machine the cost for this part is around 480.00 part number AP2068335

Ive just put a new grid cutter in my whirlpool ice maker but it is not heatinh up to cut the ice sheets into cubes. Any ideas what to do next?


Yes the next step is to check the voltage on the secondary side of the grid transformer found in the photo on page 30 of the=> 15 and 18 inch Whirlpool Ice Maker Service Manual

I hope the manual is a big help in resolving the ice cutting problem and please ask should you have any questions. The secondary side of the transformer should be showing a least 8.5 volts ac. Let me know if you are able to find the problem, Thanks Sea Breeze
The 18 inch ice maker takes the same grid transformer as the 15 inch model.

Have kitchenaid undercounter ice maker, came with the house i bought a year ago. the problem is the water freezes in the resevoir. i have replaced the circulating pump, the thermistor, some sensor,...


on the right side of the ice bin and above the cutter grid are 2 sensor plugs, unplug the one towards the rear of the machine (usually has light brown w/red striped wires). if this does not fix the problem then replace the main control board and the transformer. Also the water doesn't go to the grid, it rolls across the evaporator, freezes a slab of ice that then slides down to the cutter grid. the cutter grid should be somewhat warm, it is what cuts the ice into the little squares. I've worked on these machines for around 7 years now and have only seen this problem once, this should fixya

I have a side by side Kenmore fridge, model# 106.53532300. The ice maker has stopped making ice all of a sudden. Everything else works fine.


Ice makers do go bad and it is inevitable. Check the ice maker connection and make sure that all is in order. If all seems okay and the ice maker does not work, replace it.

We have a Whirlpool K40 Ice Maker but it seems to have stopped producing ice. The motor is running but there is no water coming into the machine & therefore no ice is being frozen & cut by the...


a few things to check, first off is adequate water supply(obviously).. next check your drain system, if your unit gravity drains look for a blockage, but if you have a secondary drain pump to pump away water check for proper operation, if that pump fails the machine will no longer let water in( thinks it full and no need to produce more ice if it cant get rid of old water

Ice jams in KUIS18NNJB Kitchenaid under counter ice maker


There are 2 sets of wires on the cutting grid that are perpendicular to each other. Electrical current passing through the wires creates heat that melts the ice. The first set cuts one direction, then the ice strips drop onto the second set that cuts the strips into cubes. Remove the cutter grid and check if the wires are broken. If they are, electrical current can't pass through the wires, so no heat. Restringing kits are available to fix this. If the wires aren't broken, you'll need a voltmeter to see if current is reaching the wires. If it isn't, then the transformer has likely failed.
