Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . If those cubes freeze and dumps but water does not go into the icemaker , replace the water valve behind the refrig ( piece the water line connects to ) . If it does not dump the cubes , replace the icemaker . Also , check the fill tube ( tube which fills the icemaker ) to make sure it is not frozen up . If so , the water valve is seeping and still needs to be replaced . Check the coils under the refrig for dust , lint , pet hair , etc. The coils have to be clean for the icemaker to be 5 degrees , and work properly .

Ice maker has stopped working


IT is either your inlet valve which is cheaper than replacing the icemaker, when you replace it(located behind panel on back of fridge) make sure you do not have ice build-up in the water tube behind icemaker. If that does not work than you will have to replace icemaker. If you take a flathead screwdriver and pop the cover off of your icemaker you will either have a screw that you can manually turn to test the icemaker to see if it is working. There is one you can do this with, the other one you would need an icemaker tester that most tech's have. Good luck!

The icemaker will not work


you might need to replace the icemaker or the freezer isnt getting cold enough for the icemaker to operate correctly. if freezer isnt getting cold enought for icemaker to operate correctly you should probably have it checked by a tech. if the icemaker isnt taking water you also could have a bad water valve

Amana side by side icemaker stopped working


The icemaker is not working because the water pressure is too low. An icemaker is controlled by a timer so it has no idea how much water is in it. The water valve gets energized for about 7 seconds letting water in the icemaker, but if there is no water pressure then the icemaker will not fill.

Icemaker is not working


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water inlet valve . If it freezes and doesn't dump , replace the icemaker . Make sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , etc .. for refrig to be proper temp for icemaker to work (5 degrees) .

Icemaker quit working after I cleaned the coils.


After checking the fill tube (line that fills the icemaker) to make sure it's not frozen , pour about 3/4 cup of water into the icemaker . If the icemaker dumps the water but doesn't refill , replace the water inlet valve . If the icemaker doesn't dump the ice , replace the icemaker . ALSO , make sure the fan which cools the compressor is working . Possible when cleaning the coils , a glob of lint or something , was sucked into the fan and blocked the blade from turning .

There is water to icemaker but it does not make ice.


Check if the icemaker inlet valve is opening and if the icemaker solenoid is working.

If the icemaker has a filter also replace the filter.

Icemaker doesn't make ice


If there are ice cubes in the icemaker sitting there waiting to be dumped then the icemaker is bad. If the icemaker is dry then it could be the water valve is bad.

The icemaker stop working on my Whirlpool side by side frig


If there are ice cubes setting in the icemake waiting to be dumped then the icemaker is bad. If the icemake is dry then the water valve is bad. You have one water valve with two solenoids. One works water in the door and the other sends water to the icemaker.
