The icemaker on my Roper refrigerator has stopped working. It will not call for water to fill the tray. The refrigerator has the ice and water in the door. When you push the lever to try to get ice, you hear the motor running, but nothing happens. Any help would be appreciated
Remove the white cover in front of the ice maker by pulling straight toward you. There is a white gear made of plastic that might broke off, you probably have to replace motor module assembly. My Roper ice maker quit making ice and found the problem, I'm shopping for cheaper part replacement which is being secured by 3 screws.

Check the inlet line from the back of the icemaker to the tray. It is probably frozen up. Take a warm bowl of water and with a towel take the warm water and try to thaw the line to allow water to flow through the line to the tray. This happens when flow is restricted to the tray or water is not flowing due to being shut off. It will settle in the line and freeze.

I installed a new icemaker (cost approx $100) and its making ice. Very easy to install yourself (remove 4 screws holding part below icemaker, then unplug icemaker, and unscrew the 2 screws holding it in place.). Good luck-
Probably the valve that feeds water to the ice maker leaks and this water freezes up at the filling tube to the ice maker and the water doesn't go through, but if the filling tube is not frozen and the ice maker doesn't call for water the problem is in the ice maker inside board ,if so you should replace the ice maker.
If the icemaker did not stop right in the spot where the water fills the tray, without completing the cycle, you have an icemaker problem, but that is highly unlikely. More likely is that the water fill valve (the part right where the water line hooks onto the refrigerator) will have to be replaced.
you need to troubleshoot the problem, if the wire arm that tells the ice maker to stop making ice when full is in the upright position the ice maker will not make ice. the problem has to be either the switch on this arm malfunction. but probably in MOST cases it is your electronic water valve which has gone out. this is located on the water supply line on the back of the fridge at the bottom probably behind some cardboard or plastic. it is the same kind of water valve as a dishwasher uses, if it malfunctions it will not deliver water to your tray, manually fill the tray and put the arm down, if the maker dispenses the ice out of the tray, chances are your electronic valve is broken.
guest make sure your wire arm on icemaker is down same dandcs also for orig poster they have duel water valves one goes to door water one goes to icemaker.icemaker works a general rule more than door water so wears out faster but you have to replace both as they are a unit .other things that will stop ice production are frozen ice fill tube ,bad motor module in icemaker .check that first .if that don't solve it then reply to me and we will get deeper
It could be one of two things. The fill cycle could be too long causing the water to overflow or the icemaker may not be ejecting all the cubes out of the tray. A normal fill cycle is very short. Maybe 6 seconds long. So I would check and see how long the fill cycle is and when it stops check and see how much the tray is filled with water. I would also check and make sure that all the ice cubes are ejecting next time you hear it harvest.
