Is it your ice maker, or possible the blades that crush the ice or dispense the cubes? What can happen in the latter case is that during the storm the ice melted and pooled in the cutter mechanism. Then, when power was restored, the blades were frozen solid. To fix, investigate taking out the cutter mechanism and letting it thaw and drain. Then reinstall and use frequently for the first few days to prevent refereezimg.

Testimonial: "I have manually cycled the gears on the ice maker to verify no parts were frozen in place. Very good thinking though Wixmith!!"

    upon further inspection, the ice maker water supply line has some type of blockage after the water enters the refridgerator lines. (water is coming to water connection at back of unit, as well as out the water dispenser in the door) now to figure out how to access the water supply line for ice maker to thaw/ unclog it.

    actually took the supply tube out the back of the freezer and it was frozen solid wth ice. took it apart, ran hot water over the frozen pieces, reassembled and it's working like a charm. Thanks for being here Fixya.com !!!

Sub Zero model 632 Icemaker shutoff arm stuck in the up position. No water in ice tray. Tried turning frig off for 30 seconds, no luck. Checked water supply, it's good. Metal fill tube not...


The shut off arm is in up position. This is the off position for the ice make. Try pulling the down to the first level this will engage the micro switch to start the ice maker. Also, behind the ice maker is a 4 wire plug remove the plug and see if there were some electrical arcing. But first before removing the ice make plug--Please unplug the refrigerator first before work on the ice maker. stewbison

Westinghouse Model WSE6070WB*5 Error code: Cn Er


I recently had this message on my Westinghouse fridge. The CN and ER message stands for Connection Error. This is due to a power surge.
I suggest you disconnect the power cord from the powerpoint and switch off for 5 minutes.
When connecting, if you have a double power point use the other head as the initial one may be faulty and this may have caused the power surge.
Hopefully this will fix the CN ER message to disappear.

Icemaker dont work after power outage


Make sure the ice bail wire is not lifted. If it is, the ice maker will not make ice.

The water valve may have failed to. It's in the bottom back of the refrigerator, and the water line normally connects near where the valve is.

Let me know what you find.

Whirlpool Gold Ice Maker Quit Working


IF THE FRIDGE IS COOLING AND FREEZING WITHOUT AND HASSLE THEN YOU DONT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR CONTROL BOARDS.ALSO IF THE WATER IS STILL COMING OUT THE WATER SIDE OF IT.YOU NEED TO LOCATE THE WATER VALVE AND CHECK IF THE VALVE TO THE ICE MAKER IS NOT BLOWN THAT MIGHT BE THE CAUSE OF THE FRIDGE NOT MAKING ICE.

GOOD LUCK.
