    I have tried defrosting the freezer section of the refrigerator--thought maybe the supply line was frozen. The infrared light works sometimes but is not consistent. From other postings this is a persistent problem and really don't want to start trying piece at a time to fix it. Many others have posted the same problem--what is the fix???

    This ice maker is equipped with an infrared sensor to stop the icemaker when the ice bucket is full. The sensor sometimes is blinking, sometimes on solid, and other times not on at all.

If the icemaker doesn't make ice but you can see the arm swing into motion and you hear a buzz for about 10 seconds after it is finished, the water valve is asking for water that isn't arriving. This means the valve and the solenoid are probably okay, but the water supply is not. Be sure the water supply line isn't kinked behind or beneath the refrigerator (¼-inch copper tubing is much better than plastic fill line).

2) Check to see if something has caused ice to back up around the mechanism—this can cause the fill tube to freeze, blocking the mechanism. When ice cubes are small and seem to be getting smaller, it generally indicates a frozen fill tube.

3) Check the water line that enters the back of the freezer for a blockage. Find the water shut-off valve behind the refrigerator or under the sink, turn it off, unscrew the copper line from the back of the refrigerator, put the copper line in a bucket, turn on the valve, and see if pressurized water pours out.

4) Check the tap valve; a bad tap valve may cause the problem where the icemaker's supply tube connects to the water pipe. If necessary, replace the inlet valve and the tap valve. For the tap valve, use the type that requires you to drill a ¼-inch hole (as opposed to the "self-piercing" type). You can do this yourself, or call a repairperson or plumber to install an inline water filter when replacing the valve.

NOTE: The water line attaches to a solenoid at the back of the refrigerator, and then travels to the icemaker. The solenoid may be defective or may not be receiving power. You can try removing the sediment screen inside the solenoid and flushing it with water to clean it; be sure to inspect any seals or diaphragms. Unplug the refrigerator first. Unless you're skilled at home repairs, this job is better left in the hands of an appliance repairperson

Here is a solution. On the back of the refridgerator there is a small blue pump that pumps in the water. Does the water on the door dispense or do you not have that feature. If you have no way of knowing, take it off and have it tested. Most of the time it is because of those pumps. I have had to replace many in my years with Sears. Another thing is to make sure the laser lenses that pass between the doors is unobstructed and clean. If the lasers line of sight is obstructed then it thinks the ice bucket is full. My guess, without being there to check is the water pump.

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.

Ice maker stopped working. removed ice maker and ice tray thawed and cleaned. reinstalled ensuring correct installation model KSRA25CNSS00 what now?


take off the cover to your icemaker and make sure the 2 tabs in the center of the main gear are in tack and not broken or bent. if they are, the ice maker module will need to be replaced. if that is okay, check the fill tube in the back of the freezer that goes to the icemaker and make sure it is not frozen. if it is, it will need to be thawed. your water filter may be plugged and need replaced. if all those are ok, then there may be an issue with the water valve itself.

Each mold tray has a heating element that is turned on to free the ice cubes from the mold tray and allow them to fall into the ice bucket when the tray is rotated into harvest position. Sounds like that is not being turned on... or is defective..

Ice maker quit - LG refrigerator model LFX25960ST, ice maker PN 5989JB0001A


I have the same problem.

Ice in the gears.

Splash from opening and closing the door when liquid water is present seems to be the logical problem.

I had cleared the ice before, thoroughly dried the icemaker and reinstalled it. It worked until I adjusted the icemaker to make large cubes.

I will reinstall it and see how long it last. I will also complain to Sear about the short life of this device.

Ice Maker troubles


THERE IS A HARVEST CONTROL (SENSES THAT THE ICE IS PRESENT AND SWITCHES MODE TO HARVEST)... THAT MAYBE THE PROBLEM BEFORE YOU CAN SAY ITS THE MOTOR MODULE. IF YOU HAVE A BAR THAT IS VISIBLE OVER THE BIN ... TRY LIFTING IT ALL THE WAY UP WHEN YOU HAVE ICE IN THE TRAY... IT SHOULD SWITCH THE MODE TO DUMP THE ICE. I NEED TO KNOW IF ANY OF THIS WORKS OR NOT BEFORE I CAN GO FURTHER. GOOD LUCK .... YOU CAN WRITE ReckingerJ@aol.com make sure to type (Fix-Ya) in the subject bar.
