One quick test would be to manually put water in the ice maker and wait a few hours. If it does push the ice out, that means the ice maker is working. If it did not refill the ice maker with water the valve (in the back) may need to replaced. It is also possible that the fill tube inside the freezer is frozen. Another thing to check is the temperature in the freezer. It has to be 10 or below for the ice maker to start a cycle.

    Ice maker stopped making ice


    hi,

    The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

    The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

    First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

    My ice maker has stopped producing ice - I have a whrlpool fridge freezer


    Causes are:
    1. Check shut off arm- If it fails to move due to lot stored ice cubs, remove some quantity of ice cubs.
    2. Check the water pressure. Due to lack of water, it may stopped producing ice.
    3.Check freezer temp: must be around 5 degree.
    4.Check water hose has no leak. due to scarcity of water, ice maker could stop making ice cubes.
    5. If water valve defective ice cube could not be made. To check the valve please follow this step.
    Locate your ice maker, remove the ice bucket. Pull the coveroff the end of the ice maker. Locate the holes "V" and "L". Take a paper clip(jump clip) and tape. Straight the clip and put tape in middle. Hold the tapedside and insert the clip into "V" and "L". This sends the power to watervalve.If water goes into ice maker, water valve is good.Hope, is it helpful?

    My ice maker stopped making ice...is there anything i can check myself to correct this problem


    Hi,


    If the ice maker has completely stopped producing ice :-


    Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.


    The ice maker is producing ice poorly:-


    When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

    First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve.

    There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.
