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.



if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

I unplugged my frigidaire pn 241691311 unit and now my icemaker won't make ice. Any suggestions on how to get it to work again?


If the icemaker was removed and reinstalled, double check to make sure the plug is fully engaged and the ice bin shut off arm is back to the down position.

How do I control the amount of ice in the freezer? When I open the freezer door ice pours out onto the floor and in the freezer itself.


Hello,

That is going to a internal problem in the icemaker,is has a sensor that when it detects that the ice bin is full its supposed to cut off the icemaker so it doesnt overflow and continue making ice such as your experiencing. By replacing the icemaker it will shut off when the storage bin is full.

My icemaker will get cold but wont make ice.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Here is what the manual says:


3. Icer-ette freezes but water does not come into mold; no ice production.
_____________________________________________________________

3A. Nonfunctioning water valve assembly. 3A. Clean or replace solenoid valve assembly.

3B. Mold heater assembly. 3B. Contact Raritan Technical Support.

3C. Water supply turned off. 3C. Provide pressurized water.

3D. Icemaker module. 3D. Replace icemaker module.

3E. Cold control. 3E. Replace cold control.
3F. Bad wiring harness plug contacts. 3F. Contact Raritan Technical Support.*

Although this is for troubleshooting non optical sensor refrigerators:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34
The troubleshooting procedures for cycling the unit are exactly the same,
The ice maker module part number for the 120V unit is PN 628366 (do a net search for this part number and save yourslef a bumch of money if you fetermine your moduleis bad) You start the harvest cycle by removing the front cover and then jumpering test points T to H. The white dial will begin to move if there is power to the module. Remove the jumper when the sweep arm reaches 5" o'clock and let the ice maker automatically cycle. It should harvest, and fill in on complete turn of the white dial. If it does not fill you probably have a water supply or water valve problem. There is an inline input power fuse for the ice maker. Power should come in via the red wire.

Mind you the ice maker has an internal thermostat behind the module assy that has to reach 15 deg F to start the harvest cycle. When you jumper T to H you are bypassing the thermostat. If the thermostat fails or the unit does not reach 15 deg F then the harvest cycle will never begin.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Have a side by side kenmore ref. and the ice machine is not making any ice. The ice maker switch is on and I am getting water. Model on my manual reads 106.58916801. any suggestions.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Having determined your icemake is PN W10190960 , here is a link that will help you test your icemaker:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34

The steps are pretty straight forward and will isolate exactly which component of the icemaker / system has failed.

I would like to note that these icemakers are very reliable. They do occasionally fail but most of the time the problem is the freezer is not defrosting properly so the airflow through the freezer is blocked by ice build-up in the evaporator coils due to that defrosting problem.

Your unit has an electronic control board that controls the defrost circuitry.

If you check out the icemaker assy per the first link and still have the problem I would recommend doing a manual defrosting by unplugging the unit. Then remove the contents of the freezer section and place a fan blowing into the freezer section for just over 2 hours. This makes a water mess so be prepaired.

After the manual defrosting cycle restart the unit and reload the freezer contents. After about 12 hours check the icemaker to see if it made any ice at that point. If this solves your icemaking problem it will only be temporary if you still have an automatic defrost cycle problem. Your unit should defrost at least 3 times in 24 hours.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a PSS26 ge profile fridge and it quit making ice


The icemaker is bad . You have an electronic icemaker and the internal boards cannot take the freezing and the heat (freezing moisture) . Just replace the icemaker .

Icemaker


Do you hear it trying to draw water into the ice tray? If so, there might be an internal problem you can't fix yourself. especially since the fridge is dispencing water. Is the arm inside the ice maker pushe down? This is what tells the ice maker to fill and make the ice.

Let me know if this helps.

Subzero 500 series ice maker


It sound's like you have a faulty icemaker. The icemaker has an internal timer that commands the inlet valve on at the correct time. If it does not stop the command, it will continue to fill. When you shut off the system, it kills power to the icemaker and that is why the solenoid goes off.

Ice maker quit - LG refrigerator model LFX25960ST, ice maker PN 5989JB0001A


I have the same problem.

Ice in the gears.

Splash from opening and closing the door when liquid water is present seems to be the logical problem.

I had cleared the ice before, thoroughly dried the icemaker and reinstalled it. It worked until I adjusted the icemaker to make large cubes.

I will reinstall it and see how long it last. I will also complain to Sear about the short life of this device.

GE Ice Maker not working.....Water in the door is working......


the fill tube that runs into the back of the icemaker is most likely frozen up in the cabinet. use a blow dryer to warm it up and you should be back in business..
