My BI95 ice maker is not making much ice. I have replaced the thermostat. That did not help. The tem is set to around 20 deg. And i am alsogetting some of the teflon coating off of it in the ice. So i ordered a new unit. Now how does it come out. I think i have removed all of the screws but it will not come out. I also ordered a new door seal. Thanks in advance
I just RR'd mine. Undo the three screws on the bottom of the metal piece that the ice maker sits on, then the two screws that are horizontle above the . Take of the back, withdraw the termocouple from the tube that goes through the foam, clip the wires (5) leaving enough of a pigtail to crimp a **** splice to the new ones. Withdraw the fill tube. Don't lose the clay that seals the holes through the insulation. Withdraw the ice maker by gently twisting and pulling straight out. Replace in reverse order. Getting the screws back in is a little tricky.

Ice makers can be repaired. Sometimes it is cheaper and more cost effective to just replace the entire unit for about 50 dollars or less on ebay.
If the freezer temperature is not low enough your ice maker will make ice in tray but not empty it into the tray since the interior temp has to be about 10 degrees for the thermostat to activate the unload cycle.
If there is no ice in the tray perhaps the water line to unit is clogged or the solenoid that feeds the water to unit is malfunctioning. Or, maybe the cam mechanism of the ice maker that controls the solenoid is fubar.
I recently ran into this issue at our shop, I called the factory and they suggested to replace the thermostats and temp control to the ice maker. This was not the case, apparently there are two different ice makers that look identical but they are different in how they run. Verify you have installed the correct one for this unit, or this issue can happen.
It will only call for water when the thermostat is satisfied. Now if you advance the icemaker when the ejector blade reaches 10 oclock thats when it should call for water. If you dont here the valve humming then it would be in the water switch inside the icemaker.Also make sure the thermostat is not set too cold. if its too cold it will never satisfy your control.
Manually advance : remove the cover on icemaker then turn the small gear counter clockwise
This unit work on the thermostat. When the temperature gets between 10 - 15 degrees it will satisfy the control then turn the compressor off and icemaker will advance. If the control is set too cold then it will never satisfy the control. 1st make sure the thermostat is at the warmest setting. When the compressor cycles off look to see if the icemaker is advancing.If no then replace the control.
You need to check to see if the compressor is running and the fan is running. If both are then you need a new unit. The 45A has the r12 refrigerant in it and you wont be able to get parts for a r12 system. U-line makes a BI95 to replace that model. If the fan isnt running then I would replace the fan. If nothing is running then it could be a bad thermostat but first make sure the ejector blade on the icemaker is at the 12 oclock position.
The valve assembly for U-lines shouldnt be taken apart. Now the first thing is to advance the icemaker. Remove the cover off the icemaker head. (pry and pull at the same time) use a 5/16 nutdriver or socket on the small gear. Turn it counter clockwise. Whent he ejector blade reaches 1 or 2 oclock it should take off by itself. When the ejector blade reaches 10 oclock then it calls for water.
(ejector blade is the fingers that push the ice out)
How a bi 95 works is the thermostat need to be satisfied first. Then it advances the icemaker. Turn it to the warmest setting. If its set too cold then it would run and never be satisfied.(warmer the setting the more ice it makes) Everytime the compressor cycles off the icemaker should be advancing. If not then the thermostat could be stuck in the freeze mode.
T-stat Terminals 2 is yellow(common)
3 is blue/black (fan & compressor)
1 is red (icemaker)
The cyle is stuck in the midway section. Unpluh the water supply to ice maker anf see if it will return to the fitst stage, If not we will need to look into the ice maker to see if one of the contacts is stuck. Is this a new ice maker and desighned for your refrigeratorr? Sea Breeze
