Ice maker won't fill

Ice maker was previously working until a piece of ice got stuck in the exit of the ice maker. Ice maker attempted to fill and water splashed everywhere inside the freezer. Water stopped prior to our discovery of the problem. Removed the blockage...didn't work. Removed the ice maker and let it thaw...still didn't work. Jumped H & T test ports on the side of the ice maker and it turns as suggested in another solution. Disconnected both lines from the solenoid on the rear and water seems to be to both ports. Water flows from the in the door water. Suggestions?? Thanks

I had this problem with a Kitchenaid and Sears rep advised me to pour some water in the tray. Did and the ice maker started working in about 90 minutes.

My ice maker inst working Whirlpoo; model gz25fsrxyy2

By "ice maker isn't working" do you mean it isn't filling with water, it isn't freezing the water in the ice maker, it isn't dumping the ice cubes into the bin, or it isn't dispensing ice cubes?
Was it previously working and it is not working now?

Typically one can hear the valve when it opens to fill the ice maker with water. Can you hear it attempting to do so? If so, and there isn't any water in the ice tray, check that there is water supplied to the valve at the wall and the valve is open. Is there a water filter? Has it been replaced per the manufacturer's recommendation? (Typically, the water filter should be replaced every six months.)

Is the "full" bar pushed up? It shouldn't be. The bar above the ice cubes should not be in the horizontal position. That position tells the ice maker the bin is full so it should wait until the bar goes down, indicating some ice has been used.

Can you hear the bayonet turning? Is the ice maker attempting to dump out cubes whether or not they exist? The next issue after you confirm there is water going into the ice maker that is being frozen and the ice maker knows to dump the ice, is the bayonet. There is a motor that turns the bayonet and a mechanical connection. Either could be at fault.

Timer ice maker kenmore side

If the timer piece you are referring to is behind the square white cover, and it's moving slightly back and forth, you should visually check the ice making area it's self to see if the ejector fingers are jammed with ice, or against the ice stripper. Ice Maker jams can be caused by reduced water pressure to the unit mainly from the water filter, your water filter in the toe kick should be replaced at an interval of 6 months to a year, regardless of filter status light. When water pressure is low, not enough water fills the unit and the undersized cubes can become lodged or stuck in the ice maker while being ejected, equally so if there is an over fill situation caused by other failures the ice maker can't eject at all.

Our automatic ice maker will not quit dripping in the freezer. It keeps clogging the ice maker with icicles and large blocks of ice. Essentially, it keeps "freezing over." We have defrosted it...

if it keeps filling and overflowing you have a bad water valve on the back of the fridge.the part number is WR57X10027 and the valve is around 75 dollars.first thing lift the arm or shut off the ice maker so it won't leak anymore,you're missing a few letters off of the model number so when you call your parts store give them the full model number,open the fridge door,look up on the right hand side wall up near the ceiling and give them the model number to make sure you get the correct valve,shut off the water supply to the fridge,then have the new valve next to the old valve when you remove a water line from the old valve just connect it to the new valve,do this until everything is changed out and the new valve is in place,turn on the water supply and you can check the ice maker to make sure it doesn't overflow.you can manually start the ice maker by grabbing the plastic arms of the ice maker and pull them forwards slowly until the arms start to advance on their own,you'll hear the water valve fill the ice maker and then you can watch it fill to see if the water is filling it correctly and i'm sure you'll be fine with the new water valve installed

there are plastic arms on the ice maker,sometimes they bend and get jammed or when the ice got stuck it did damage to the motor and it finally died,if it's filling,a heater on the ice maker comes on,loosens up the cubes,the motor turns and dumps out the cubes,it sounds like you have a bad ice maker

Ice maker will not fill with water

Water might be frozen in the tube that fills the ice tray. Check the tube and if it's frozen shut, use a hair dryer to heat it until the ice piece melts out. Your icemaker should work after the fridge has been closed for 24 hours to cool back down.

I have a side by side that has the ice maker in the door, when it makes ice cubes, they come out all connected and this makes it difficult to get ice to despense from the shoot and most of the time it will...

It sounds like you have too large a fill of water in the ice maker. If you remove the ice maker there is a fill adjustment screw under the cover of the ice maker.( the only way to get the cover off is to remove the ice maker)
Very small plastic screw head of about 1/8 inch or less. Ice maker controls water valve by time fill. Believe there is one turn adjustment total available. You might want to put a small hole in the cover before you reinstall it to adjust screw the next time without removing ice maker, believe it will be side facing out. Lastly I think you turn adjustment screw in to decrease and out to increase time of fill.
Suggest leaving a towel on the floor for awhile until you have solved problem.
Next thing to try would be a different ice maker, or if normal sized ice is melting and refreezing in the bin, you have a cooling or thermostat problem .

Good luck

My ice maker is not working...i replaced the maker but still no ice after 48 hrs...but i did notice ice stuck in the valve that goes into the maker..i pulled the chuck out..is that normal?

The ice frozen in the fill tube , is a sign of a bad ( seeping ) water inlet valve . Sounds like you needed to replace the water valve , instead of the icemaker , if the problem was " not making ice " . The water valve , is the piece the wall water line connects to on the back of the refrig .

Ice Maker does not work

My husband repaired our ice maker after our repairman failed to show to replace the entire unit. He removed the front panel and then the next panel fastened by 2 screws. A white plastic piece can be seen as the ice exits the unit, which is poorly designed and literally gets stuck to the left. He slid the piece to the right and vuala! It works. He is looking for a rubber piece or something that will keep the piece pushed to the right, as it seems due to the poor design that this type of malfunction will happen again... good luck!

Ice maker doesn't work!

Could be the sensor for the ice maker to fill up....we have a wire bar that flips up when full so it shuts off ....also a piece of ice gets stuck in the plastic fingers somtimes but since you defrosted it that shouldn't be the problem....not sure if you can take the ice maker out yourself ...better call the repair man ...
