Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Ice maker tray is getting too much water and freezing in a sheet over the cubes. When it dumps, we have crushed ice rather than ice cubes. Thanks for any help on adjusting water fill up.

You don't specify, but I suspect this is a Whirlpool built refrigerator. If so, the module is likely faulty. Remove the plastic cover from the icemaker to expose the white gear. Look closely at it for any discoloration or burn marks. If you see anything, you will need to replace the module.

Help! Our ice cubes are frozen but not dumping and our tray is filling up with water fitting a solid sheet of ice. Can anyone help? Thanks


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field refrigeration technician.

It sounds like your ice maker has a bad motor module/circuit board.
It is like a control board. This module reads a temperature sensor that indicates the water is frozen and ready for harvesting the ice cubes. Then it turns on a electric heater under the ice cube mold, then turns on the motor to harvest the ice cubes. After the ice cubes are harvested, it opens the water supply solenoid valve to fill the mold with water. The ice maker needs to be replaced.

I have a Maytag frid m#PBF2255HEW (bottom freeze w/ice maker. My ice marker currently works but after dumping a tray of ice it "leaks" water into the tray causing all of the ice in tray to be one...


Sounds like the water inlet solenoid is getting stuck open, this is assuming you ice cubes are normal to large in size, Small would indicate the ice maker is leaking, You can try just replacing this valve , It's the valve that connects to the water hose behind your refrigerator and is fastened to the lower corner of refrigerator. Otherwise you can purchase the entire ice maker and solenoid kit for around 65.00 Hope this helps

Ice maker has ice motor doen't dump the ice


Your ice-maker may need to be "hard-reset". To do this, perform a manual-defrost by emptying out the freezer (and fridge) and shutting all power off to your unit for several hours (at least half a day unless you can be sure the temp in the freezer has fully reached ambient. Next, with freezer empty, restore power, make sure the "ice" setting is set to off, then set the forced power-freeze mode (you can refill the fridge, but leave the freezer empty for now. When the power-freeze completes (at least 2.5 hours) you can refill the freezer, set the "ice" mode to block/crushed (IE something other than off) and then hit the "black reset button" to restart the ice-maker. IF it still will not dump the cubes then the ice sensor/control board may have failed.

Ice maker no longer makes ice; water still comes for the filered water outlet but there appears to be no water going to the ice maker;


THE WATER VALVE IN THE BACK IS A TWO PART SYSTEM. EVEN THOUGH YOU GET WATER FROM THE DOOR THE ICE MAKER SIDE OF THE VALVE COULD BE BAD. CHANGE VALVE. B4 YOU SPEND THAT KINDA MONEY--DO A SELF CHECK FIRST--POUR WATER IN THE ICE CUBE TRAY. IF IT FREEZES AND DUMPS THEN CHANGE THEWATER VALVE. IF IT FREEZES BUT DONT DUMP CHANGE THE ICE MAKER.

My Whirlpool is not making ice cubes and the tray is dry, no water inside the ice maker but the water dispenser is working fine.


Most likely the water control valve on the rear of the refrigerator is defective on the ice maker side. Fill the ice maker with tap water and if it dumps the ice and does not refill then the water control valve is the reason. Usually an ice maker that still had cubes and will not dump the problem would be the ice maker. Hope that helped you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice Maker frost and freeze where ice drops into refrigerator door


You need a service guy to look at it. It could be water leaking or a simple case that the flap isnt sealing and the ice melts and then freezes the flap open

Ice Maker not working


Get me the model number. Put tap water in ice maker tray and make sure arm is down. Let it freeze. Wait and see if the ice will drop, this should allow water to come into the ice maker for another run. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
