Ice maker not making ice now

I emptyed the bucket out of the ice maker put it back in and now I have no new ice. I changed the filter and checked all the conections on the icemaker and they all seem fine. It is wierd that it worked fine before emptying the bucket, and now I have no ice. the water in the door works fine, so does the ice crusher in the door.

I don't know what would make it just stop like that. never had any problems before. the black hose in the top of the freezer doesn't seem to be blocked at all. What should I check next or try replacing 1st.

So there is water in the tray that makes the ice cubes? If, not then it is most likely frozen. If there is water in the tray, then see if the tray is trying to eject the ice. If so, then there is a problem in the tray, if not, then there is a problem with the computer. Please expand on the information for me of what the machine is doing or trying to do to make ice and what isn't working for sure in the process and then I can diagnose the problem better

If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order:

It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these:
If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire.
The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.
The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary.

We replaced the ice maker in our Samsung refrigerator and now we cannot get the water to dispense once we cut the water back on. What do we need to check?


By your question, you are saying you are not receiving water from the water dispenser. Make sure the electrical connector you disconnected when making the ice maker repair is securely re-seated. If you removed the door to make this repair, there is also a connector at the top of the door make sure it is also seated. The only other connection for water or ice delivery is at the water inlet at bottom rear of fridge. There are two relays at the water inlet, one for water, one for ice. If these were disturbed recheck that they were reconnected. Of course these checks should be performed with the power cord disconnected to prevent shock. Once all is checked, plug fridge back in. When dispensing water you should hear a solid clunk as the relay engages. As for the ice dispenser you will only hear the clunk as it requires water to fill the tray. Just remember to allow for two complete cycles (fill - freeze - dump) before receiving full cubes. Oh, by all means don't forget to make sure the Ice bucket full lever (Usually a thick wire) running the length of the bucket Is in the down (empty) position. If it is up, this turns off the ice maker indicating the bucket is full. New ice maker units usually come packaged with the (bailer wire) in the up (off) position.
Hope this info helps!

Will not dispense ice


commonly what you will find on that model is the main control board on the back of the unit is the source of your issue, it begins like a computer virus where the unit will render the water in the door feature useless, next goes the ice delivery sys, then the unit does not defrost properly causing cooling issues. But before running out and getting a new control board go by this check list first: 1) make sure your ice bucket is properly seeded, 2) make sure the ice in the bottom of the bucket is not melted together if so empty good ice in seperate container and put back in freezer quickly to avoid melting then run hot water in ice bucket to melt remaining bad ice afterwards completely dry ice bucket and put good ice back in and see if it works properly, 3) make sure the auger mtr is not seized due to door being left open and humidity freezing in mtr gear.

I replace the filter and now it dose'nt make ice


Check for a jammed ice cube in the fingers. Use a hair dryer to release the jammed cube.
Add some water to the ice mold and see if that don't speed up the process if the ice mold is empty.
After changing that filter:
Ice in the mold none in the bucket= ice maker problem
Empty mold= water supply problem

Crosley side by side ice maker makes to much ice !!!!!!


Most ice makers have a wire bar that senses when the ice bucket is full. The bar lifts up when new ice is made. The ice maker determines if the ice bucket is full by lowering the bar back down after the ice drops into the bucket. If the bar hits the ice cubes in a full bucket, the ice maker shuts off. If the bar drops all the way and dosen't touch ice cube, the ice maker continues making ice until the bucket is full.

So you likely have one of the following problems:
1) The wire bar is missing or bent. Check to make sure that when the bar is pushed up, the ice maker stops making ice. Most bars will 'click' into the up position so you can shut the ice maker off. Push the bar up until it clicks into the up position and wait overnight to see if it makes more ice. If there is no wire bar over the ice bucket, that is your problem.

2) The switch the wire bar is connected to is malfunctioning. If you push the wire bar up and the ice maker continues to make ice, this is likely your problem. You will need a new ice maker unit. Try Appliance Parts Pros or EBay for a new unit.

Ice maker is not working but water dispenser is.


Try the following check:

First make sure that the temperature in the freezer is 5 degrees or below.


Self-Diagnostics

Unplug the fridge and then plug it back in.

If the compressor is running when you unplug it make sure that you wait 15 minutes before you plug it back in.

You will then have 60 second to open the freezer door and 2 second to view the LED output code.

Ice maker check 3 pulses pause 3 pulses

Optics receiver 4 pulses pause 4 pulses.

Optics emitter and receiver 2 pulses pause 2 pulses.

All good 5 seconds on
