Ice maker stopped making ice. For this problem you have check few things. First thing, is the water filling in the ice maker chamber and then ice maker not making ice? Or, the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber so it's not making ice. If the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber then it's clear that ice is not getting made due to no water in the chamber. For no water filling, the problem is either water supply valve turned off so water is not filling. Turn on the water supply and it will fill. But if the water supply is turned on then the other possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from which the water runs and enters the ice maker chamber. If this tube is blocked then water will not enter the chamber. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is water valve at the back of ice maker unit. This water valve is for letting the water in the ice maker. The water valve open only for 7 seconds and in this time the water fills in the ice maker chamber and then water valve closes and the same procedure runs again in the next water filling cycle.------- For your information I will mention that there are two valves. One is the main valve the back of the fridge section. This main valve lets the water enter the refrigerator and other valve is at the back of ice-maker section. This other valve lets the water to enter the ice maker. In most of the cases the fault is water valve at the back of ice maker section. ------------- The other above possibilities which I gave you is water not filling in ice-maker chamber so it's not making ice. But now consider that water is filling in ice maker chamber but it's still not making ice. Then the problem is ice maker unit itself. This unit is controlled by main board. But in most cases if water is filling the ice maker but it's not making ice then its faulty ice maker unit. So see if the problem is water not entering the ice maker then the water fill tube is frosted by ice or the water valve at the back of ice maker is faulty. Replace the valve. ------------

Ice maker is not functioning. no ice being made.


There are a few basic things you need to make ice. First is a refrigerator that is cold enough. Most ice makers in refrigerators need 15 degrees or colder in the compartment that the ice maker is located. Second, a functioning water valve and ice maker. What model of refrigerator do you have?

Ice maker is not going to harvest mode.

a) Either Ice maker is faulty. Change Ice maker.

b) Before that make sure that freezer compartment has reached minimum temparature for the ice maker to function properly. Normally it is - 11 c or lower. You have a freezer temperature like -18c and not harvesting then problem is on icemaker. Sometime you can pull the power out from ice maker unit and plug back after couple of minutes to reset the ice maker unit control board. It might work again.

I have a kitchenaid 23cd.Icemaker doesn't work has 40# water pressure 5 deg in freezer water works to fill glass no water in ice tray unpluged for 24 hours


If the water dispenser is working and fill glass function is working but the ice maker section there is no water in the tray then its faulty ice maker valve.This is a twin valve.The valve is one unit,but has two sections one for water and one for ice dispenser.This valve is got faulty and not working for both sections so water is not entering the ice maker tray.
There is a water valve at the back of the ice maker.This valve controls the flow of water in the ice maker chamber.If this valve is not functioning as required then water will not enter the ice maker.This valve is at the back of ice maker connected to the water fill tube.It has to be replaced to clear this problem.

Water dispenses from frig but ice maker is not producing any ice. We've adjusted the temp up and down and it isn't doing any good. Any suggestions on what else to check?


Before you adjusted the temps, were you having cooling issues? If you were, those cooling issues would need to be resolved in order for your ice maker to function properly.
If you had no cooling issues, the first thing i always ask is when did you last change your water filter, assuming you have one. If you dont have one or it was changed recently, then do the following. Turn the ice maker off for at least one hour, then watch to see if it begins to cycle, the angled row of teeth will rotate. Some models will not operate if the door is open, so close the door light switch while you observe the ice maker. If the ice maker cycles, but gets no water, the ice maker solenoid valve will need to be replaced. If the valve needs to be replaced, you may sometimes find the fill tube that directs water into the ice maker is frozen with ice, this will have to be cleared manually for proper function. If the ice maker does not cycle when you turn it on, you have a bad ice maker or there is a wiring problem with your ice maker system.
