Icemaker: Hotpoint HSS22GFTE WW Side by Side


When pressing the icemaker button, the trap door on the front door opens to release the ice, and the inside mechanism lifts up to allow it to fall. I hear what I think is the motor running but the auger doesn't spin. I removed the ice bin and the auger then spins, but it doesn't spin when the ice tray is inside. I made sure there were no clumps of ice stopping it, and spun the auger by hand to make sure it will spin freely before placing the bin back inside. If anyone has any solutions for me to try i would be more then grateful.

I bought the new house with the fridgerator in in so I have no receipt or warranty information. And I ahve never used a frigerator with an icemaker in it so I have no idea where to start. I did read through many forums and tried a few things but nothing has helped yet.

SOURCE: Ice maker won't dispense ice

The next step would be to use an "Ohm-meter" to check the switch on the door that is supposed to activate the auger circuit. If the switch is good, then you need to check the wires leading up to the switch for available voltage. (Keeping in mind that you may not get voltage on that line unless the "door closed" switch is closed.) If you have good voltage there, then you need to check the wires leading to the auger motor to see if the voltage gets to the motor. If the connection is good, and you get voltage to the motor, then the motor is faulty.

SOURCE: Icemaker works fine, only dispenses water

make sure that the ice shoot is not clogged up with ice or the in the ice basket where the ice goes through. Sometimes the ice can be stuck together and jam and nothing will come out.

Have a Hotpoint model HSM25GFRA SA Ice maker stopped did some checking ond found the water solinoid to ice maker was open and replaced it. But still no ice, have removed ice maker, cleaned and defrost


Check to see if there is ice blocking the tube to the icemaker. Sometimes when the valve is giong bad or the icemaker sits too long without making ice the tube will freeze and block up with ice.

My samsung model #RS2578BB AUTOMATIC ICE MAKER IS NOT MAKING ICE PLS ADVISE


TOOLS NEEDED:
Eyes (fair to good shape)
#2 phillips screw driver
Flashlight

Lets assume it was working at one time right? And the FREEZER temp is BELOW 20degs

REMOVE storage bin to see icemaker.

LOCATE test button on underside or rightside of clear motor asembly.
(should be black)

Press until icemaker starts, then release button. Watch the tray twist and return to upright the should fill with water.

If icemaker worked: ICE SENSOR MAYBE BAD> ORDER NEW ICEMAKER IF THE ICE DOES NOT EJECT AFTER 4

If icemaker did not Start by pressing the test button.: UNPLUG the frig or go the Main Service Panel to the house (BREAKER BOX) and shut off the power and verify NO LIGHTS INSIDE THE FRIG>

Remove the concealed screws holding the icemaker to the ceiling.

PULL the icemaker forward to release icemaker. Using the Flashlight
LOCATE the wiring harness on the ceiling. Look for the RELEASE and Squeeze and pull down. Inspect the electrical pins to make sure all pins are equal and secured. If all is well there?
THE PROBLEM COULD BE either: ICEMAKER or Main PC Board

I would order a Icemaker assembly first since it is the least expensive.

Good Luck and Cheers!

try turning the temperature for the freezer down a little bit. it has to at least be around 17 degrees before the older ice makers start to work.

Ice maker does not work


I had the same problem and even called a technician only to be told they would come out for $70.00.

I got a tip and learned that nothing was ever wrong with the icemaker. What you must do is turn the temperature up to the maximum for a period of at least 8 hours. Especially after changing the water filter or unplugging, power failure, etc. Once the icemaker is producing you can then lower your temperature gauge.

Will not make ice but will give water model number is gss22wgmb ww


check the dual water valve one side is for the icemaker the other for the water in the door
either a water valve issue or a ice maker problem
if the valve checks good check the line off of the valve to the ice maker you should be able to blow thorugh the line to the ice maker if you caint blow through the line it is frozen in the freezer behind the icemaker and will need to be thawed
if you can blow though the line to the icemaker
replace the icemaker

Hotpoint HSS25GFP icemaker stopped working


are u sure that model # Is right.. DOnt come up in any of my model data bases Seems like u might of got a bad icemaker.. if the water is coming into the icemaker from the water valve.. icemaker has to have power, to do that... all funtions after that would be controled by the iceaker .. The only other thing i can think of is your refrigerator has to be a certain temp to activate icemaker somewhere around 0 give or take some to be safe
