Check first the filter for the ice maker. Check if it may need replacing. If there are contaminants in the ice you may not be able to form ice correctly. Another you can look at is the valve for the water. If the incorrect amount of water may cause ice not to form properly.

See details below to check the valve.

My Ic13b icemaker but when ice tray is full it still adds water to icemaker causing it to overflow and freeze on bottom of freezer

either your ice maker is calling for too much water or the water valve isn't shutting off when the ice maker tells it too. The best thing to do is to change both the ice maker and the valve because if one is defective more than likely thee other will fail shortly

Refrigerator running too much

If the machine is running all the time a few things could be happening, The defrost timer could be bad, but if that is the case then you should see a build up of ice forming on the wall that covers the evaporator coils. Another situation is that your machine is low on freon and not reaching a temperature cold enough for the temperature control to shut the machine off. Third and last the temperature control itself could be bad and thinks the machine isn't cold enough. in that situation you would notice ice build up as well. Hopefully this helps.

My frezzer works but refrig doesnt cool well

open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing,if not hold in the door switch for a few deconds and let it go,if the fan isn't blowing this is your problem.all that happens is the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows cold air through the damper and into the fridge section so if the freezer is fine you have a bad evap fan motor or the damper isn't opening all the way

The ice maker on my Amana stopped working suddenly. The arm is in the down position. Why isn't it producing ice?

Check the plug in the back of the freezer to be sure it hasn't become dislodged by something. Let me know how this is, I may have another answer if that doesn't work, aside from replacing what only all the sudden stopped working. You will usually have some notice, i.e. smaller cubes, etc if it's about to fail

I just emptied all the ice out of my ice bin to take on a picnic, but now my ice maker won't make more ice. I have had it for 5 years with no problems. What happened? Did some setting get bumped? or...

1. Check to make sure the when you removed the ice bin that you did not leave the lever by the ice tray in the up position. That is the one the stops the making of ice whe the bin is full. This is the only easy solution.

2. Check to make sure that the vent between the freezer side and produce bin is closed. This is used when opened to keep that bin colder than the rest of the fridge. If that isn't it then there a few easy solutions.

My maytag fridge isn't producing ice model #

see if the ice is frozen, there are three screws holding the ice maker in, two on top and one on bottom. The two top screws are teardrop screws and don't need to come all the way out. The bottom screw does need to come out. The electrical connection is a squeeze type and the unit should come out. Clean it out and re- insatll to see if that helps.

I have a Whirlpool Gold refrigerator, model GB9SHDXP, about 2 and a half years old. It has a bottom freezer. Yesterday I noticed that the food in the top part were not as cold as usual. I came back...

ok,when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing?all that happens is the freezer gets cold,a fan in the back wall of the freezer turns on and blows cold air up into the fridge section,a thermostat tells it when it's cold enough or it's getting warm then it will blow more air up top,if the freezer is working correctly then either the fan isn't working or the bottom freezer door was left open,warm air got sucked up into the air vents causing water droplets to be formed,then they freeze blocking the air vents with ice and now the cold air can't go into the fridge there any ice on the ceiling of the freezer or frozen water droplets on the bags in the freezer?if so the door was left open.unplug the maction,and with a hair dryer blow the hot air into the holes on the back panel,keep doing this until you don't see any more water draining through the holes,turn it back on and see if the cold air is blowing up into the fridge.if the evap fan motor is bad the part number is W10128551 and it's around 25 to 30 must of got the model number off of the book,it's not the full model number,check in the fridge section on the right hand wall near the ceiling and you should see a tag with the number on it.also down at the bottom kickplate,you can remove the kickplate and there should be a tech sheet tucked away in it,read it and it will tell you how to put the machine into defrost mode,if you can do this,instead of unplugging it if you have to melt it out with the hair dryer you can put it into defrost so the heater will come on and this will help you to defrost the vents quicker.let me know what you find and if you need any more help.good luck with your machine

remove the bottom kick plate and see if you have a timer or a computer board called an adaptive defrost board,if there's a timer turn the knob on it and see if the heater comes on,if it does then you have a bad timer,if it has the adaptive defrost there should be a tech sheet in the kick plate,look at it and it will tell you how to put your machine into defrost,also you changed out the thermostat already,shut down the machine,remove the freezer wall,unplug the heater and with a meter read out the heater,if it's good change out the timer or adaptive defrost board and you should be all set,also with that machine i need the p number,it's where the model number is,i looked up your model number but alot of machines popped up,it looks like you have a calrod heater and they hardly ever go bad so check for a timer or adaptive defrost board,if it's a timer turn the knob on it slowly till it clicks,it will be in defrost,remove the freezer wall and see if the heater is on or you can look to see if it's glowing or look for melting ice and you'll know the heater is on,if it has the board,look at the tech sheet,it will tell you how to put it into defrost,do what it says,when you open the freezer door if the fan is still blowing then the board is bad because the fan won't blow if it's in defrost on the older machines,let me know what you find
