They Usually become disconnected internally or brake on the inside, The only way to find out is to Remove the ice maker pull it apart and see. First unplug the refer. Unscrew the 2 upper and 1 lover screw where the ice maker attaches to wall. Lift the harness tab and unplug the ice maker set on counter. Pull off the white cover and unscrew the housing. Pull apart the housing and see if you can re insert the wire to the toggle lever. If not you can replace this unit in a similar order. Hope this helps.

I have an LG side by side refrigerator. It won't stop making ice. The arm on the front of the tray is all the way up and it won't go down. It stays up all the time. Any suggestions


http://www.searspartsdirect.com/ replace the ice maker would be the simplest. If you're a good DIY'er, shut off the water to the icemaker, remove the maker and try your skills at troubleshooting the unit. The timer on the icemaker is suspect as it controls the water valve. The wire bail you mention only tells the ice maker that the tray is full and to stop making ice by stopping the timer until you push the bail back down. My guess is that the timer motor failed and stopped just as the water was turned on, BAD TIMER!

Samsung refrig model rf26xaebp stopped making ice but i still bet water thru the door


The solonoid valve for the ice maker may be faulty or the icemaker may be froze up. Try thawing out the icemaker with a hair dryer. If thats doesn't fix the problem you may have to replace the soloniod or ice maker control. Be sure the arm above thre the ice bin is in the down position. Hope this helps.

My side by side refrigerator is making a buzzing noise from the ice maker area every few minutes


Hello,
That sound you here is the icemaker calling for water to fill the icemaker but not water into refrig to fill icemaker. If you have no water connected to icemaker,lift up and lock arm into place to turn off icemaker,if you do have water line connected but no ice is being made need to see why water from house plumbing is not coming into the refrig.

Why is the ice maker not droping ice / Mod. ET1FTTXKQ00 / Type C21TFA01 Whirlpool 08-01


Take a 4 inch piece of 14 gauge insulated wire and strip 1 inch of insulation off each end. Bend the wire into a U shape.Remove the plastic cover from the front of the icemaker. Insert the bare ends into the terminals marked T and H on the face of the icemaker. The wheel should move and dispense the ice into the bucket. If it does not move and drop the ice replace the icemaker.

MY ICE MAKER FEELER ARM IS STUCK IN THE UP POSITION. CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME HOW I CAN FIX THIS? MODEL LFX25950SB LG REFRIG


Water is getting into the area where the arm pivots and freezing. This prevents the arm from dropping down when it should. I use a hair dryer to melt the ice in the area of where the arms comes out of the base. As soon as the arm drops, the ice maker will make more ice. This LG in the door icemaker is junk.

Freezer is almost always running....


If you look at the icemaker, you will see a metal wire which runs along the side of the unit. If you manually swing the wire arm up until it locks in place (about 90 degree swing from the normal straight down position) you will have turned the icemaker off. (Alternatively you can unplug the electrical plug from the icemaker which goes into the freezer wall.)
If the icemaker is not turned off, it will periodically cycle, which turns on the ice cube mode release heater during it's cycle, putting unnecessary heat into your freezer. You do not need to plug the ice maker supply line. This should be a Fix-Ya for your refrig.

Icemaker makes tons of ice and it spills all over the floor


The icemaker should have a thin metal arm that turns it off when the arm is raised, and on when the arm is lowered. This is so when the tub of ice gets full, the cubes push the arm up, and the icemaker is turned off to keep from making excess ice.

When I had the overflowing ice, I checked my icemaker and found that the arm had fallen off (and thus the icemaker won't know when to stop making ice). I found the arm and stuck it back on, and all was well. It may be a bit tricky, and it might take some ingenuity to keep the arm from falling back off.

I hope this helps!

Icemaker want stop making ice


The quick answer is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed.
If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board.
If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker.
You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.
Post back if you need instructions on reparing it.
