Hi, For the benefit of anyone doing a Google search for it (which is likely anyone with a Fisher and Paykel fridge w/icemaker) the broken wire is a notorious design flaw, and if you see it dangling from your ice tray - symptom is no ice being made -

You must remove the clip underneath the ice tray, and a little foam pad with it. There you will see the broken wire attached to a little black sensor. It's a little fiddly to do in place, but after unplugging the fridge (unless you like a good electric jolt) you need to splice the wire and reattach it. Your ice maker should resume working as intended.

Hope that helped.

Good luck.

REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Hi, I have a fisher and paykel fridge for almost 3 years.The problem is that the ice cube maker stop working. I have check all the things that are mention in the fridge guide, water supply is fine, the ice...


I had the same problem. my freezer was set too cold so the water inlet was freezing. what I did was blew a hairdryer into the ice making section for a couple minutes, this seemed to melt the block, then tested that it was clear by forcing the ice tray through a cycle. you then need to set your freezer warmer - I find setting it 2 bars from the warmest setting keeps stuff frozen and the ice coming :) hope this helps!!

I have a Fisher & Paykel Refrigerator. The ice cube maker has stopped working and the 'force cycle' does not make the ice cube tray 'flip'. Any ideas?


Hi! The refrigerator has dual valve with two coils at the back and the ice side may have gone bad thats why it doesnt make ice. YOu will have to have it replaced to get your fridge back to its normal working condition. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Model E522B - Ice Maker not working - forced cycle does not flip tray. Water dispenser is working ok. Freeze r temperature set low.


freeze tempt even tho set low / how low is it / must be 0 to 5 deg too work well . it stops at 15 deg .. . make sure both fans are working and the cond coil is clean . .. very important . .. water disp does not work with ice maker . you have a dual valve in the back with two coils . the ice side may have gone bad . if so replace the valve . both sides / only way it comes . hope this helps **** ..

Ice maker has quit making ice


Lower the freezer temp. The icemaker won't come on until the temp is low enough.

Ice maker cycling but getting stuck


Either you have a bad heating element (soften the ice to eject) or a stripped gear in Ice Maker either way it will have to be replaced by the time you buy the parts and install them you can just replace the ice maker as a unit
