My ice maker doesn't make enough ice cubes


Is the ice maker itself filling normally, meaning where the cubes are made gets enough water to cover the complete area or just a few slots? If not then check the fill tube where the water comes into the ice maker to make sure no ice has formed blocking the water from coming in.
Now if ice production in general has slowed, going from every 45 minutes or so to like every 6 hours, then your machine more than likely isn't getting cold enough. The ice maker requires the temperature be at least 10 degrees F or below for it to function properly.

My ice maker on Maytag MF12468AE stopped making ice. When I add water to the tray, the cubes form but are not ejected. Is the the water valve bad or is the entire ice maker itself bad?


The ice maker is bad and they have been discontinued by the manufacturer. Luckily, there is a replacement part that works in your machine, part number W10477228. The reason I say its bad is because it should have atleast ejected the ice that was made when you poured water in it if it were working properly. The only other thing it could be is that the temperature is not cold enough in the ice maker area, which is 10 degrees F or colder. If the temperature isn't at least that then the ice maker won't cycle at all.

What's your problem?ice maker isn't working


Assuming the coils underneath the ice box are clean and the ice box freezer section is running under normal operating conditions so that the ice mold thermostat can close contacts @25F, their are 2 suspects. The ice maker itself and the ice maker's water supply valve. Most of these supply valves have 2 solenoids for ice maker and water through the door. If the water valve is ok then the ice maker is bad.

My LG LFX25971ST quit making ice


First check to make sure that you are getting water into the ice tray. If not it is most likely the water inlet valve not supplying water to the ice maker.

If it isn't ejecting the ice, it could be either the motor or the thermostat.

My ice maker isn't getting water in to make ice. I can manually pour water into the maker, let it freeze, and get the maker to get the ice out, but no water comes in. GE model GSHS5KGX. Side by side...


Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects theb you need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.

Water thru the door does not work


First, is your ice maker making ice normally? If it is then you have water. If it isn't then it might be time to replace the water filter! If the ice maker IS working then it has to be either the dual water valve solenoid or the switch.

Ice maker will not make ice


It sounds like you might have a bad fill valve. There are several reasons that an ice-maker doesn't get water. If the freezer isn't cold enough, the ice-maker thermostat will not allow it cycle. There are two different styles of ice-makers. Pull the white cover off of the ice-maker, if you see two gears the you have one of the earlier models. Turn the smaller of the two gears counterclockwise slowly until the gears start to turn by themselves. Now if you do not have the two gears under the cover, then you have a modular ice-maker. There are several holes in the brown plate. Each hole will have a letter beside it. Jumper between the T and H holes until the ice-maker starts to turn by itself ( you should hear a click if you'll listen closely). Now that you ave cycled the ice-maker, check and see if there is water in the ice tray. If you still have no water then change your fill valve. If you do have water then its usually cheaper to replace the actual ice-maker. Be sure to check the temp of the freezer, most ice-makers will not cycle above 10F degrees. Most ice-makers are around $130. Most valves are around $50. I hope this helps you solve the NO ICE situation. Thanks for using fixya..com , please let me know how it goes, thanks mike

My model is 596-50699001 and the problem is does't do ice, and change a filter what can I do to fix it ? Thankyou for helpingg me


There three problem that will not make your ice maker to make ice.

If the water’s route is blocked or the solenoid doesn’t work

If the bail wire is lifted—the ice maker won’t make ice.

Your home’s water pressure must be strong enough to serve an ice maker.

For your ice maker to maker ice,
be sure the bail wire above the ice tray is in the down position.

If the ice maker doesn’t make ice but you can see the arm swing into motion and you hear a buzz for about 10 seconds after it is finished, the water valve is asking for water that isn’t arriving. This means the valve and the solenoid are probably okay, but the water supply is not. Be sure the water supply line isn’t kinked behind or beneath the refrigerator (1/4-inch copper tubing is much better than plastic fill line).

Also,check to see if something has caused ice to back up around the mechanism—this can cause the fill tube to freeze, blocking the mechanism. When ice cubes are small and seem to be getting smaller, it generally indicates a frozen fill tube.

Check the water line that enters the back of the freezer for a blockage. Find the water shut-off valve behind the refrigerator or under the sink, turn it off, unscrew the copper line from the back of the refrigerator, put the copper line in a bucket, turn on the valve, and see if pressurized water pours out.

The water line attaches to a solenoid at the back of the refrigerator and then travels to the ice maker. The solenoid may be defective or may not be receiving power. You can try removing the sediment screen inside the solenoid and flushing it with water to clean it, and at the same time you can inspect any seals or diaphragms to ensure that they are sound. Unplug the refrigerator first.

Check the tap valve; a bad tap valve may cause the problem where the ice maker supply tube connects to the water pipe. If necessary, replace the inlet valve and the tap valve. For the tap valve, use the type that requires you to drill a 1/4-inch hole (as opposed to the “self-piercing” type). You can do this yourself, or call a repair person or plumber to install an inline water filter when replacing the valve.


Thanks for contacting Fixya.
