Ice maker does not fill with water

The ice maker has been operating properly for several years. Just recently it quit making ice. Mechanically it goes through the cyle but there is no ice to dump. I discovered that water is not going to the freezing tray. About the same time as this occured I noticed a change in the water dispenser. It does disburse water but it is delayed.

If your model has a water
Filter, that may need replacing. If that isn't it, the water valve most likely is the problem

Hi

If  The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice 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.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

Probably the dual valve (solenoid) the one that opens when the ice maker calls for water is leaking.It's located in the back of the refrigerator at the bottom behind the cover.To be sure this is the problem turn off the ice maker and after a while if is water the valve is leaking ,if not the problem is with the ice maker.

HI this is just a test the icemaker runs when you first turn it on, its not suppose to fill up the tray, it will fill it when the icemaker reaches the correct temperature, if its not cold enough in the freezer it wont kick on, if its been sitting for several hours and still wont fill or make ice, you need a new icemaker. The new icemaker part # is WR30X10093

Ice dispenser not producing ice. water not being fed through pump to ice tray


It sounds like you might have a bad fill valve. There are several reasons that an ice-maker doesn't get water. If the freezer isn't cold enough, the ice-maker thermostat will not allow it cycle. There are two different styles of ice-makers. Pull the white cover off of the ice-maker, if you see two gears the you have one of the earlier models. Turn the smaller of the two gears counterclockwise slowly until the gears start to turn by themselves. Now if you do not have the two gears under the cover, then you have a modular ice-maker. There are several holes in the brown plate. Each hole will have a letter beside it. Jumper between the T and H holes until the ice-maker starts to turn by itself ( you should hear a click if you'll listen closely). Now that you ave cycled the ice-maker, check and see if there is water in the ice tray. If you still have no water then change your fill valve. If you do have water then its usually cheaper to replace the actual ice-maker. Be sure to check the temp of the freezer, most ice-makers will not cycle above 10F degrees. Most ice-makers are around $130. Most valves are around $50. I hope this helps you solve the NO ICE situation.

We have a nice ice and it has worked fab for three years but has just stoped making ice yet is still operating normally


Good day,
Without the make and model, I could be missing something, but ice makers are more alike than different. The best way, is to follow a step by step procedure. It should solve your problem.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

Kenmore Ice Maker


Sounds like a water valve problem to me. Force the ice maker to cycle. (turn it off and let it get cold for at least an hour then turn it back on). Test for voltage on the ice maker side of the valve. The valve is usually in the back near the floor. Just follow the water line. Another solution. switch the wires on the water valve. then try the water dispenser and see if it makes the ice maker fill up. See if when the ice maker cycles water comes out the door. If the ice maker causes water in the door , replace the valve, If door switch causes ice maker to fill up replace ice maker again.

Freezer is not making ice


PULL THE FRONT COVER OFF OF THE ICE MAKER AND CHECK THE PLASTIC GEAR ON THE FRONT OF THE CONTROL. THE CENTER OF THE GEAR HAS TWO PLASTIC TABS THAT HOLD THE GEAR IN PLACE. IF ONE OF THE TABS IS BROKEN OR MISSING, THE CONTROL OR THE WHOLE ICE MAKER NEED TO BE REPLACED.
CHECK THE ICEMAKER TO SEE IF THERE IS WATER OR ICE IN THE MOULD. IF NO WATER OR ICE, THE FILL TUBE IN THE BACK WALL MAY BE FROZEN OFF. REMOVE THE FILL TUBE AND CLEAR IT OF ANY OBSTRUCTION. YOU CAN ALSO USE A HAIR DRYER TO MELT OUT ANY ICE FROM THE FILL TUBE. THE OTHER POSSIBLITY IS A BAD WATER VALVE. THE WATER VALVE HAS TWO OUTPUTS, ONE FOR THE DISPENSER AND ANOTHER FOR THE ICE MAKER.
