Icemaker does not make ice, however water gets dispensed ok


Check your freezer temp. Ice makers need for the freezer to get down to a certain temp for it to work.

I have a side by side 2955A bought 07/2009. The filtered water dispenser seems to freeze up more often than it is liquid. I have removed the ice maker from inside the door but that does not seem to help....


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
These are just my thoughts as a 40 year in home technician as to what I would do to resolve your frozen filtered water issue if you had called me.

1. I would measure the freezer temperature. It should be maintained at 0 deg. F or -17 C. If it is lower than that the fresh water tank can freeze.

2. Inspect the freezer door insert for any holes or cracks. Looking in the ice dispense funnel / chute area also for any gaps.

3. If all of the above are good the door insert would have to be removed and inspect for protective insulation in the area of the water tank. Possibly relocating the dispense feed water line deeper in the door i.e further away from the freezer compartment.

The above sounds good but step 3 above is a tedious and time consuming process to get the door line out in order to gain access to the water tank. It is quite easy to damage the liner if your not careful. Addit6ionally the door gasket mounting screws all have to be completely removed and that alone can result in an added expense of a new door gasket should it tear. Lets add the face that the ice chute area can be difficult to get all the components free from the door liner so it can be removed. i.e. Difficult

I really think you most likely may only need to start raising your freezer temps slowly. Make only 1 adjustment per 24 hours. Here is a secret you can use as a gage vs a control panel temp reading. If you have any ice cream, the container should remain firm if you squeeze it hard. Raise the temps one day at a time. Check the ice cream container each day. If you discover the ice cream container is pliable one day then make a colder temp adjustment. ANY adjustment should be minimal. 2 degrees on electronic control panels or about 1/8" for a manual control.

Try the temp adjustment and see what happens.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Keep a refrigerator/freezer in garage. The


Good day,
Yes. Domestic appliances will not work properly below approx 55 degrees.
The freezer suffers most simply because the machine runs rarely at 55 degrees and degrades as the temp goes lower.
They are designed to balance properly when in an environment where people live. Ideally 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
The machine is not broken.
Moving it inside, is the only solution.

Water dispenser suddenly not dispensing water


Remove the bottom kick plate . Follow the plastic line about 6" and you'll find a connector . Push in on one end of the connector and at the same time , pull the line out . Close the door and press for water . If no water comes out of the disconnented line , the water valve is probably bad . If water does come out , the line inside the freezer door is frozen . If this turns out to be so , you can lower the freezer temp for maybe days , or , put the food on the door, inside the freezer , tape the light switch down ( to keep the lite off and fan running ) and tape plastic over the freezer door opening so the freezer will continue to work . Reinstall the line back into the connector by pushing the hose firmly into place . Leave the freezer door open for maybe 1 or 2 days for thawing out , going by ocassionally and pressing the water dispensor . Important : lower the freezer temperature slightly to keep line from freezing again . ONLY CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN WATER FLOW SLOWS OR ICE CUBES GET SMALL . The change filter lite comes on by the amount of times water dispensor is used and to make money for the vendor .

Jenn-Air JFC2089H Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator. One month ago the water tap stopped working then I noticied that the top doors to refrigerator would not reliably close like they used to. Last...


The water could have been frozen in the door and melted when your fridge warmed up.


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.



The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Ice Maker Has Stopped Making Ice


Hi: I didn't see the simple first solution to try in your list. The ice maker is thermally protected. It won't make ice until the freezer is at 0degrees F. Set your freezer lower in temperature. It may seem cold to you but it has to be at 0degreesF. Frozen at 32 degrees wont cut it. Please don't open the door every 5 minutes to see if it's made ice, as it will raise the temperature. It appears in your question that you listen for the ice to drop. That's the right way. Give it a day to drop in temp. before resetting the temp. This is a free try before you have to call a technician. I hope this helps, Jeff

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.

Leak from icemaker shorts electricity in house


It sounds like the ice in the bin is warming up enough to melt for some reason then re-freeze. Check your door gasket seal and also the ice chute door flapper seal to make sure warm room air isn't being drawn into the ice bin area. Also make sure the freezer area is VERY cold like 0 degrees F or lower, that will keep the ice hard and help stop the ice from having a liquid surface film from opening and closing the freezer door too often (then freezing again). The water down the back is from the ice cubes melting a little then re-freezing. Also, is the frige working OK? Does the compressor turn on and off normally? I ask because sometimes the compress start device is failing and the refer can warm up quite a bit while the compressor is trying to start up... eventually the compressor will start but by then the ice has melted a little then the compressor runs for a long time to bring the temps down again. Monitoring with a thermometer every hour will show if the temps are lowering in the freezer section too much.
