Water expands when it freezes and you probably have too much of it when the mold tray fills... Readjust the level to a bit less and you won't have triplet or quadruplet ice cubes..
Hope that helps...

Whirlpool model # ed5vhexvq1 side by side ...ice maker will not dispense ice..water works but it sounds as if there is no power going to icemaker from dispenser


Does the icemaker bucket has ice cubes. If yes then your problem is in the dispensor. If no ice cubes on the icemaker bucket then your problem is with the ice maker unit.

Let say Ice cubes on the ice maker bucket and dispensor makes noise when pressing for ice cubes. Then either your ice dispensor flapper is frozen or may be ice cubes in bucket may have defrost and frozen again sticking together.

Icemaker is making ice but the ice dispenser is not working


Check the ice storage container. The ice dispenser will not dispense ice until the first supply ice has dropped into the ice storage container.Remove excess ice from the back of the ice container. Make sure ice cubes are not jammed between the ice maker and the back of the ice container.

---------------------

The auger won't engage or turn to dispense ice.Remove the ice bucket and with a hair dryer warm up the inside where the fork is that turns the auger in the bucket and try it and if this does not help then you will have to replace the auger motor ,, chances are the motor is just froze up .--------

If there is nothing jammed then try this./Remove the ice bin out.And then clean the ice bin.

Rotate the auger with your hand.If its hard then there is problem with auger motor.If the auger is not rotating fine then its faulty auger motor or the auger motor is frozen,if you notice ice getting collected there.

---------------

Take a hair dryer and blow hot air on the auger motor for few minutes.Take care you dont blow hot air continuously.

But if that is not helping then disconnect auger motor connecting wire wait for 2 minutes clean the connector and reconnect the connector back and see.If that is not helping at all.Then,replace the auger motor.

I have no manual and I want to make ice cubes and be able to drink filtered water. I do not get any ice cubes when I switch the button on in the left rear. I am not getting water. I have removed, to...


1. Keep freezer temp setting @ 5 degree.2. Check water supply with full pressure (Back of regrigerator) 3. Confirm shut off arm is not struck due to huge cubes stored in bucket. If so, please remove ice cubes.4. Check solenoid valve which allows water flow whenever required to ice maker is working.
Please follow the steps also given hereunder.


Close the freezer door completely. The dispenser will not work while thedoor is open. Place the ice bin in the proper position. Avoid placing ice inthe bin that was not made by the ice maker. The cubes may jam in the deliverychute. If ice is jammed in the delivery chute, remove it with a plastic utensil.Discard the ice in the bin and wash it if ice has melted around the auger. Drythoroughly before replacing it. Wait three minutes if the dispenser stopsdispensing ice after the arm has been held in for a long time. The dispensermotor will reset and will begin to dispense ice again.

No ice in the ice dispenser since yesterday


the trouble is coming from eithier the micron switch located at the backof the paddle,or the auger motor.It is the motor that rotates when you press the cube dispenser lever located at the back portion of the icebucket,it might got stucked.or its winding is open Try to hve a check ,first open the freezer door, pull out the icebucket, look fr the light switch then maintain the door open,use your right hand in pressing the switch to simulate a closed door position,next use your left hand to press the cube dispenser lever, if the auger motor rotates and you heard a humming sound, it means it is only your ice cubes that sticked together preventing the motor to rotate freely,or there is something wrong with your bucket only,if your hear humming sound only, the auger motor is stuck up, unplug the unit, removed all the screws securing the bracket,disconnect the wiring connector, pull out it out,try to thaw the froozen motor if it is still stuck,wait a longer more or try to apply wd40 oil in between the entangled rotor and core, lubricte.If you hear nothing the winding might be open or there is no supply to the motor., point of check- micron switch- check for continuity,wiring leading to it and the line goin out to cabinet/inside, check the main connector to the bucket area for corrosion or accumulated dirts, And lastly if you are not confident enough to do the job sir better to calla qualified technican to do the troubleshooting sir, safety is our first priority.

Fridge Freezer model KA58NP90 Ice maker problem


What is most likely your problem is the crushed ice solenoid. This solenoid, which is located next to the auger motor behind the ice bucket, is failing to actuate when you request cubed ice. Its "home" setting is crushed, and actuates to allow cubes past the crushing mechanism in the bucket. To be certain its the problem, remove the ice bucket, and tape the door light switch in the closed position. actuate the ice dispenser lever, for both cubed and crushed ice. you will see a square hole next to the rotating fork, when you select cubes, it should open. If it does open, there is something wrong with your ice bucket, perhaps the arm is broken, or the door inside bucket is off its snap in type hinge or broken altogether. If it doesnt open, replace the solenoid

Ice maker problem


something has to give when it too hard to turn. if ice cubes are ice to each other it could cause this . sometimes this is caused by water leaking from ice maker into the bucket . look for a bad water valve or a ice maker that is not lever or has bad tray . . ****

Will not send ice cubes down the shoot just chopped ice and chilled water. The problem started when the freezer door was left open on the fridgeadair fridge.


You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid

GE GSS25LGM Ice maker not dispensing ice


You have one of three things wrong. The auger motor is frozen up, the ice bucket is broken or you need to dump out any ice, run warm water through the entire ice bucket, dry it out and try again with fresh cubes. My guess is the auger motor is frozen. You can buy a vinyl boot that covers the auger motor to prevent moisture buildup and freezing from GE Parts at 1-800-626-2002

Frigidare ice maker making slabs of ice, not cubes


Today, I removed ice maker and auger motor. Found out this morning that water was running down the back of frig. inside, everything in freezer was frozen together. Found this out after removing all food from freezer. When i looked into the ice maker where water enters, that was frozen solid. After thawing and checking everthing. I put it back together in freezer. It is nine oclock now, and I do have cubes. I really can't tell you what I did, except thaw it all out. It's been running for four hours now and it seems to be all right.
