The ice maker is working but when I try to put my cup in the outside holder and press the ice lever.........no ice falls out. Now I see the number 3 flashing like where it would flash if you need a new filter. What is this number 3 that looks like the shape of a pad lock with a flashing red light? Please help. :)

Try filling the icemaker with a cup of water where the ice is made. Make sure the shut off arm is up. wait like a day. if it does make ice then you water valve needs to be replaced. if it doesnt replace the ice maker. also dont forget to check the tube behind the ice maker. it feed the icemaker with water. if that freezes up then water cant make it to the ice, thus ice maker and valve are fine. get behind the frig at the upper top right behind where the ice maker is but outside back. there is a tube that can be pulled out that is the feeder tube make sure no ice, do this ok?
Depends. Put your fingers into the icemaker. Feel for ice or water. If none, check the fill tube to ensure it is not iced up. This tube feeds the icemaker with water. If it is iced up, thaw it out. If no ice or water in icemaker then pour a cup of water into the icemaker, wait the nite to see if it drops the ice. If it does the problem is the valve behind the frig.
You need to remove the ice maker and open the front carefully. It has small micro switches inside it and it sounds like one that opens the water control valve is stuck in the on position. Be careful not to loose the arm spring and how that goes back together as you take it apart. Sea Breeze
Make sure the lever is down on the ice maker . Also , can pour about 2/3 cup of water into ice maker , so it will freeze and start the cycle . Otherwise , wait , and when the ice maker gets cold enough , it will cycle on its on to start the ice making procedure . If you get water to the door , then it's connected properly , and water will go to the ice maker , if the water valve and ice maker are in working order .
Normally, the ice "cubes" are crescent shaped. The most likely cause for "crushed" ice is that the ice maker isn't getting enough water on its refill cycle after ejecting the tray. Becuase there isn't enough water, the ice looks crushed...it's actually shattered.
Check the water inlet and chute to the ice maker. Sometimes they freeze and have to be manually defrosted. A hair dryer will do the trick. Also check the water chute and be sure it isn't partially frozen.
Start there...if no luck you could also have a failing water filter or sticky water solenoid valve.
I just fixed my daughter's frig with the same problem. The gear of both the box and the ice holder got water in the gear box and froze. This did not allow the gears to mesh and turn the auger. Clean the ice from both sides of the gears and try it. Works great now. Rick
This could be a bad water valve in the frig. This frig has a double water valves. One for the ice maker and one for the water dispenser. It should be in the lower back. Where the water line goes in. You can check this valve easily. Find the double water valve on the frig. Turn off water supply to frig first. Swap the plastic water lines going from the water valve into the frig. Turn water supply on. Then see if the water dispenser works. Sometimes you will have to operate the water dispenser for a little while to get the air out of the line. If it works now then the problem is in the water valve solenoid and needs to be replaced.
