What I do is use a hair dryer to melt the ice. Keep at it till the ice maker goes around and resets for the next harvest. Ice cubes hang up from time to time. I wrote an article on it

Be sure that the fill tube is getting into the ice maker and that the ice maker is not blocked with ice.  If everything seems ok, you may have a leaking water valve which causes it to constantly drip water into the ice maker causing the block of ice.

SOURCE: Sub zero 532 ice maker

When my repair tech came out, he showed me that the fill tube sometimes retracts toward the rear of the freezer. He simply pulled it forward with a pair of needle nose pliers until it rested in the delivery reservoir. This placement allows the detector to know when the tray is full and shut off; thus not overfilling the freezing tray and/or splashing additional water onto the freezer wall and into the ice cube drawer.

this isnt uncomon whith sertan water conditions . try installing a water fiter ahead of the fridge ' also you can get a food grade silicone and after using your hair drier spray the ice maker ice serface and alow the product time to dry before restarting machine . food grade arisol is flamable so do not dry it with hare drier , it drys fast enough . you can get it a apliance or refrigeration parts wholesaler.

SOURCE: after my ice dispenser jammed my ice maker stopped making ice

make sure you reassembled it correctly.
icemakers can be stubborn with their safety features and will not work if not propperly reassembled

SOURCE: the ice maker continues to jam. after this happens

Sounds like the mold heater or something in the mold heater circuit (mold thermostat, heater switch, etc.) has failed.

These ice makers are cheap, and can be purchased from Lowe's or Home Depot, if not from Sears. Just make sure the new one has the same plug on it that the old one uses. Don't splice the wires to make the new one work where the old one was!

Ice maker ice jam


Not a whole lot you can do but to keep the frost down.
If you are able to move the items in the freezer to another freezer and let it sit overnight, all your problems will melt away....
Until a couple months later when it builds up

Make sure to double check your freezer is sealing correctly, bad gasket causes moisture to be sucked in.

Here are some basic ways to slow the buildup

Ice maker tray will not rotate and dump ice. It tries to, but only moves very little. What can I do?


I am a retired service technician. There is a strong possibility that you have a jam. Often ice makers become jammed with cubes that have not dumped. I have also found a plastic sandwich bag that has jammed the ice maker. So, first inspect for a jam.
If there is no jam then the plastic gearing is broken in the motor module.
Hopefully it is just a simple jam.

Ice maker not working


Depends on the model of ice maker you have but most have a removable bin, take the bin out dump out the ice, run water through it and set aside to dry. Make sure the chute is clear and put the bin back. Do this twice a year and you wont have any problem with your ice maker

Ice maker jammed. Ejector fingers in incorrect position.


Is the position off - or the icetray heater failed?
Just before ejection - there is a heater element that warms the ice for easy discharge.

Check that the heater is working.

Reply with the model # of the fridge for more exact help.

Thanks!!

Ice maker stuck


Switch the ice maker off then back on should reset it . It is possible that the 'ice mould heater' is not working so the ice cubes don't realease from the mould , jamming the motor. Replacement ice maker is usually the solution

Frigidare FRS23KF6CB manufactured 03/07 ice maker water fill wont shut off


There is a float in the icemaker which controls water height. I'm going to bet the float is jammed or the switch it controls is bad.
