Either your freezer is not cold enough or you got a defective ice maker. It needs to be 15 degrees or colder to make ice. The water may be frooze but not cold enough to close the internal thermostat inside the ice maker. If your freezer is colder that 15 degrees, take the ice maker back to Sears, you got a lemon. Good luck!, Mack

2014 Kenmore side by side refrig. Water comes out of the door fine. Will not make ice.Tried the reset button on the left by the bucket, took top of door apart to see if mechanism was froze up.


Hello Rhonda Cornett,

Okay... water at the wall is connected... good...
but now you have TWO solenoids at the ENTRY POINT...

It would have been nice to know if there is water in the tray...
or if it EVER WORKED... but whatever.

If you are NOT getting water in the ICE TRAY...
you need to check that wire is connected to ITS OWN SOLENOID... (ELSE: solenoid might be bad)...

You might be able to TEMPORARILY REVERSE the water valves
to see if the door service still works with the SUSPECT VALVE..

Still works ... Ice maker trouble...
Fails solenoid trouble (bad valve) replace!

Then restore EVERYTHING... (take pictures ahead of tampering).

That click (or thump) you hear whenever you fill your water glass.

Every ice-maker I've ever tampered with has an on/off switch..

Fill controls... and firmness settings of some sort...
Check'em all out before getting DRASTIC.

How do I get the drive mechanism to rotate after a power outage on my GE refrigerater?


The simplest technically is to disconnect power and let the ice maker thaw out completely - I'm guessing ice froze around the drive so it can't start turning, or water got into the bearings and literally froze them up.

If that doesn't work, you might have to clean out or replace the bearings.

No water coming from ice tube b4 this started ice tube was froze hard removed tube cleared ice back to inside wall area of refrigerator ice despinser still working just no water to fill tray


Good day, Here's the checklist. step by step, 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.

The ice maker (GE Profile - 3 years old) produces ice and then, the next morning, the ice melts down into the rest of the freezer (i.e. the ice compartment is somehow not staying cold enough to sustain any...


If the unit is freezing well in the freezer and your ice bin is defrosting or ice is melting together it is your ice maker over filling the tray causing water to leak into the bin. You can purchase kits that contain all ice maker parts needed , it may be the ice maker and it may be the water inlet valve in the back , both come in the kit , go to sears parts on line with the model number from your unit.

Ice maker stopped working


I just had the same problem. You need to purchase a new motor module part numnber #8021515. I purchased mine at a Sears Service Center for 77.59. I installed it yesterday and again now have ice. Took about 10 mintutes to install. The tricky little part is removing the old one. Unscrew the three screws, and there is a white tab that needs to be pressed together (use tweezers) to remove the unit from the shut off arm.

Ice maker cycling but getting stuck


Either you have a bad heating element (soften the ice to eject) or a stripped gear in Ice Maker either way it will have to be replaced by the time you buy the parts and install them you can just replace the ice maker as a unit

Ice maker not working


I recently had trouble with both my water dispenser and my ice maker. I determined that my filter was clogged, so I replaced it. That fixed the water dispenser but the ice maker still wasn't working. I investigated further and found that the water inlet tube was frozen solid. Aparently, when the filter was clogged the water came in so slowly that it froze before it got to the icetray. I tried pouring hot water over the inlet tube to melt it and it mostly worked, but there was still some ice in the tube further back where I couldn't reach. Finally I defrosted the freezer so all the ice could melt and turned it back on and now it works great! Hope this might help.

Ice maker not filling but getting water at door


First have your hubby pop the white cover off the front of the ice maker. He will see a white gear type wheel. Under the wheel to the left will be a few holes. Take one wire (insulated) from meter and jumper across the two holes one labled "T" and the other labled "H". HOLD... the gear wheel will begin to turn. Hold wire and wait till you hear a "click" sound. Note: look at the little notch-"blue" on the wheel. It should rotate all the way around (2 minute cycle) and come back to its orginal postion where it should fill with water. Rotates and gets stuck= bad ice maker. Rotates around and no fill=replace water valve....GOODLUCK & rate me high please!!!!!!

Ice Maker problem


Apparently lowering the temperature by 5 degrees in the freezer compartment will keep the input water tube from freezing. It is working fine now!
