Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

When both the ice and water in door functions stop the problem is usually the door switch. If the door switch fails in the open position the light stays on when the door is closed and water and ice in door do not work. With the door open depress the door switch plunger to see if the comparment light goes off. If it stays on the door switch has failed. If it goes out.. hold the door plunger depressed and have someone try the water in the door. If the water in the door now works the door switch is not getting depressed enough to allow the water and ice in door to work during NORMAL operation. Again usually it requires door switch replacement to correct the problem. The door switch is a 3 terminal switch. One terminal is common, One terminal controls the light, and One terminal controls the water and ice in door functions. The switch retails for less than $10.00

You remove the switch by sliding a thin knife blade along one side of the switch to release the single locking tab. You can use a putty knife also.

Since you did not include a model number I can not help you with parts data.

There is more that can be done if the door switch is ok but I really need the model number to proceed from here. I will help you... Just respond with a COMPLETE model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Ice maker is not working


ok one of the first steps is to make sure your getting water inside the ice maker feel with one of your fingers if you can feel ice or water on the inside of the tray if you have ice then you would have to disconect and remove the ice maker fromthe machine and run hot water to clean out the ice build up on the inside then reinstall the ice maker back into the machine and test for 24 hrs to see if you get ice if you dont then you have to replace the icemaker. If you do not have any water going into the icemaker water tray then you would have to check the water valve located in the rear of your machine if the water valve is not bringing water to the icemaker replace the water valve hope this helps

Ice maker is working, but there is water in the bottom of bin


You will need to pull out what ice you have in the bin to get to the drain. Once you have done that, take a hose and force water thru the drain. You may have to snake the drain if is more than a build-up of ice. Once the drain is working, clean out the bin with ice machine cleaner and sanitizer. Restart the machine and make sure no water is dripping from the evaporator above. If there is, it needs to be cleaned.
