Re: refrigerator doesnt sem to be working right
Ice maker will not work if temp in freezer is not cold enough to keep activated
Things to check
for Frost build up and if Fan is blowing,
To make sure clean, and the fan is blowing by compressor & IF it is running
Check Recirclating Vents in refrigerator... to make sure theres no blockage,

Test and make sure your freezer section is getting to 0° and -5° often times with this problem I find the freezer section just not getting cold enough due to a condenser needing cleaning or condenser fan not working at the right speed Other items to test make sure refrigerator has 4" inch of clearance behind and possibly side but behind is absolutely a must
An ice maker has 3 basic tasks:
1. Call for water.
Then the cycle repeats. There will always be some sensors that determine timing of those tasks. Home units usually have a bin level sensor (often an arm that's lifted as the bin fills) that can be locked in the up position to disable the ice maker.
If it's calling for water but not freezing, make sure the condenser is clean. (Sometimes they look clean but are plugged in the middle.) It has to get down to nearly 0 degrees to efficiently make ice, if it's not getting cold enough you may need a tech to figure out why.
If there's ice in the tray but it's not harvesting, clean the tray, hard water deposits can make the cubes stick in the tray.
Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of
a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go
you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...
out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to
start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do
rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for
Since you mentioned your ice maker not working right - first check to see if your ice maker is hot (be carefull it can burn you if it is hot) - it is possible for an ice maker to hang in the heat cycle of the cycle producing excessive heat in the freezer. If this is the case unplug the ice maker and/ or just replace it.
The refrigerator gets it cold from the freezer so if the freezer is not working right, you'll soon notice it in the refrigerator side.
You can also check to make sure the evaporator fan motor is running(in the freezer) and the condenser motor(at the compressor) as well.
Also check the back panel of the freezer for excessive frost build up.
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.
I emptied out my freezer. Turned it off and made sure it was dry and clean. Then I turned it back on, but left the metal wire that controls the ice maker up so water wouldn't fill until freezer was cold enough. When cold enough, I dropped the metal wire down and kept a close watch of the filling process. Everything went smoothly. No problems in this first 24 hours. I think ice must have built up and letting it thaw and dry made the difference.
Here are some things you can check yourself. Does it run all the time almost non-stop? if so check the vents under the front of the frig and make sure they are clean. Aslo check the condenser coil (either in back of the frig,or under the frig)Make sure that coil is clean. The condenser coil has to have contact with the outside air in order to release the heat it removed from inside the freezer.
Make sure you frig has plenty of ventilation ( wall too close on sides and back) Hope this helped. If not then you should have a pro look at it.
check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing,
check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting,
you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
