Ice maker control arm has broken and ice machine keeps making ice. How do I stop the icemaker? And, then, how do I fix or replace the control arm (which appears to have snapped at the point that the arm...


Good day,
You will have to remove the ice maker. Usually 2 screws or clips on top and one screw on the bottom, as well as the plug that supplies the electrical power.
Since you'll need a new arm anyway, I would suggest you take the ice maker to any decent sized appliance parts house, and see if they'll pull the the old stub out and install a new control arm.
If that doesn't work, you'll need to replace the whole ice maker.
If you want to see if you can remove the stub yourself, unsnap the front cover. You'll see a semi-solid state type board. It is held in with 3 screws. Remove those, pull the board off, and inspect the area we are talking about. You might be able to get it out, but if not, go back to my first suggestion.

Ice maker overfill


The metal off/on arm may be disconnected. A full bin should keep the arm in the up position and shut off the ice maker.
Remove, then re-insert the metal arm in the back of the ice maker control head.
Make sure that a full bin of ice activates the control arm.
You may need to buy a replacement arm that is longer so that the ice catches on the arm.

GE Artica PSS29NGNA no ice is being / no water flow on ice side


It is possible the water control valve on the back of the refrigerator is defective. When the thermostat in the ice maker tells the water control valve to ope after dumping the ice. Try filling the ice maker with tap water and let it freeze and cycle one time. It is also possible that the fill tube for the ice maker has frozen shut because of the slow continious flow of a leaking water control valve. You can try to clear the ice with a hair dryer, but if the control valve continues to let water buy will have another damaged ice maker. The part number for the water control valve is WR57X10032 and you can enter parts numbers and model numbers on the search feature at the link below. Let me know how thing are and if you were able to get this under control, I am here to help if you like, sorry I just today saw your post, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Amana ARB8057CSR Bottom Freezer Ice Maker Arm is broken & stuck


If water still continues going to the Ice Maker unplug the pair of wires on the back of the refrigerator that send water up to the ice maker. Now I see I am a little late answering your post, because I just happened to run across it. I was not here when you first posted the problem. Just let me know if you still need help, Thanks Sea Breeze

Magic chef MCIM30TS table top ice maker shovel breaks


I took 4 small nails, cut them to the proper length, heated them up with a lighter, and pushed them into the plastic creating 4 metal posts that the motor could push against. Just did it and it is working. Not sure for how long.

Ice maker not working


The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.
