    ice maker wont work, model 565364; I notice the red light flashing next to the on/off switch and above the sensor for the ice maker. How do you check to see if the water is getting through the water intake line?

    My kenmore refrigerator will not make ice either. How do you gett the line out of the back of the fridge to see if it is clogged? Pull it or twist it off? I do not want to break it.

    I have the 106.56533400 model. Recently I installed an irrigation system and now my ice maker doesn't work. I am getting water to my water dispenser. I am not sure this has anything to do with the icemaker but it was working fine prior to this. There is no ice in the maker. The red light is blinking. It has been over a month we have had no ice. How do I flush the icemaker line. Or could it be something else. The freezer is working fine.

Oviously you need water first. You'll have to check that the fill valve is opening and that the water is making it to the icemaker. Make sure the fill tube that feeds the water from the back of the frige to the icemaker is not frozen. Be aware, just because you get water at the dispenser doesn't mean the valve to the icemaker is ok. If you are getting water, you need to check that the icemaker is not jammed, sometimes ice can fall back into the icemaker, or get caught in the ejector. You may need to remove the icemaker and run the mold under hot water to melt the ice. If it was jammed, you'll need to check that the fill level is correct to prevent it from happening again, both too much water and too little water can cause problems. There is a heater that helps loosen the ice from the mold, because of that there is a thermal fuse to prevent it from over heating. It will be molded into the wiring harness supplying power to the icemaker. If you have continuity through the fuse it's ok. If you don't the heater shorted and you will need both a new icemaker and that wiring harness.

Ice maker won t dump ice


The ice is stuck in the tray because the heater element has not slightly melted the ice so it can be pushed out of tray. Check for continuity of element and/or proper cam operation (motor that controls all of the operations).

Frigidaire gallery side by side won't send water to ice maker tray, but will to water dispenser


Hello Jim czyryca - From what you are describing if the ice maker is not making ice but is dispensing water, sounds like the refrigerator has a frozen water line, faulty ice maker valve or bad component that sends power to the ice maker valve when needed. The ice maker cycles internally to call for water so I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.

Frigidaire plhs3teesbe model won't make ice


Hello - If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, you can try to check the following:



1. It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.


2. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.


3. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!


4. Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

Freezer won't make ice cubes, but does provide cold water.


The water and ice maker are two seperate water control valves built onto the same. Your water control valve for the ice maker may be defective and require that you change the set. Fill ice maker with tap water and allow the water to freeze. If the ice maker dumps the ice into ice bin and then does not refill then this points to the water control valve. If the ice maker does nothing after water freezes then the problem is the ice maker. Send me a model number and I will look up the part numbers for you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Tfx20r ice maker won't fill


Try this fill the ice maker with tap water so we can decide if it is the ice maker or the water control valve. After the water freezes if the ice dumps and the ice maker does not refill with water then you will need to replace the=> WR57X10033 Water Control Valve If the ice maker does nothing after being filled with tap water and the water freezes then this would point to the=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly If you have questions I will be here to answer them for you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Water supply for ice maker won't turn off


Hi,

Its either the water valve thats not closing, or the ice maker not telling the water valve to shut off.

Turn off the ice maker, and see if water still pours out, or even better, unplug the refrigerator and if the water still pours out of the ice maker, then the water valve is bad and you should have it replaced.
