Make sure the freezer is at least 17 degrees or colder (colder is better). If you have a square cover on the end of the ice maker see if you can pull it off and press on the gear face (don't turn just press). That may clean the electrical contact springs and get it working again. Basically if ya got water, 17 degrees or colder you will get ice. Other than that the ice maker motor module is likely bad (broken gear, etc.). Pretty common.

Hello,
My lady friend has the same problem with her ice maker. The problem is, the ice tray is broken on the end. I took her ice maker out and found out it was broken. Its going to be hard finding a replacement since they don't make parts anymore.

Good Luck !!!

Why did the ice maker stopped making ice


You have two sides to the water control valve so look inside your ice maker and see if after the last ice harvest your ice maker refilled with water. If half full or empty try filling the ice maker with tap water up to the top of the the ice maker. If the ice maker dumps the ice after the water freezes then does not refill with water this will point to the WR57X10051 Dual Water Inlet Valve If the ice maker does nothing once filled with tap water will point to the WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly and will be better to repace. I will be here should you have more questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Can you turn the ice maker off like other refrigerator ice makers? I didn't see anyway to turn my ice maker off or do I empty the ice out everytime?


Most ice makers have a control arm that raises and lowers to check for a full condition. It usually raises during the dump cycle and lowers during the fill cyle. If it is unable to lower (because the bin in full) it should shut off the fill cycle. If that function is not working, then if you move that control arm to the fully raised position, it should shut of the fill cycle, until you manually lower it again.

Ice maker has ice motor doen't dump the ice


Your ice-maker may need to be "hard-reset". To do this, perform a manual-defrost by emptying out the freezer (and fridge) and shutting all power off to your unit for several hours (at least half a day unless you can be sure the temp in the freezer has fully reached ambient. Next, with freezer empty, restore power, make sure the "ice" setting is set to off, then set the forced power-freeze mode (you can refill the fridge, but leave the freezer empty for now. When the power-freeze completes (at least 2.5 hours) you can refill the freezer, set the "ice" mode to block/crushed (IE something other than off) and then hit the "black reset button" to restart the ice-maker. IF it still will not dump the cubes then the ice sensor/control board may have failed.

My ice maker in my regridgerator is not working


If the ice maker has ice in the mold and has not dumped any then the ice maker is bad. If the ice mold is empty, fill it with some water by hand and wait. If it dumps out a batch but no more then you have a bad water valve or a bad ice maker. In that case I would do the simple test: HERE

No ice Ice maker does not fill up with water


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , then check the fill tube going to the ice maker , to see if it is frozen up inside . If it is , replace the water valve behind the refrig , where the wall water line connects to on the refrig . If the ice maker dumps the cubes , but does not refill with water , then the water valve is bad . If the ice maker does not dump the cubes , then replace the ice maker .

I have a side/side model KSRD25FW15. Can get water thru door but won't fill ice trays. Why won't ice trays fill?


That is most likely the water control valve on the rear of refrigerator and near the floor. If the ice maker is empty fill with tap water and let it freeze. If it dumps and does not refill the water control valve for the ice maker is defective. I will get back soon with the parts number. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Not producing ice


There are several possibilities. The dual water control valve is defective going to the ice maker, defective ice maker thermostat; frozen water fill tube leading to the ice maker is blocked with ice. You can see if ice maker is working by filling it with tap water and waiting to see if it dumps. If it does not empty the icemaker of the ice I would think ice maker thermostat. If it dumps ice and does not refill I would say you need a new dual water control valve. Sears has a complete model number system that is confusing I know. Sears made it that way. Not sure why but look around the cold food door while open and look near bottom on the frame just above the kick plate. The number looks like this, (model No. 253.64802400 for example) I will need that number to help you solve the sound alert coming from your refrigerator. Find that number and we can go from there, Thanks, Sea Breeze
