Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Ice machine won't release ice. Just replaced solenoid valves and inspected motor. everything was fine


Answers :

Not releasing ice is due to the mold heater usually visible on the bottom of the ice mold tray, or the ice maker not cycling. If the mold heater doesn't work the ejector bar won't cycle to sweep the cubes out. I usually replace the ice maker at this point.

Ice maker isn't making the ice, but the water supply is working to make water? does not seem like the water is coming into the ice chamber it was frozen at the end of the spicet, so I took everything out of freezer and shut it off to defrost it, also using my steam cleaner. Then I'll turn back on to see if the ice machine works or not. The motor was replaced last yr. under the warranty but now it's expired, should'nt the motor still be working? it has been about 1 yr. of life of it.


Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned\012 off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the \012ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the \012raised position, the ice maker is turned ... Kenmore 53542 / 53544 Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a maytag side by side with water and ice dispenser. Model # MSD2456GE. I just moved and they sent an "expert" out to hook up the water. The expert got everything hooked up. The water leaked at the connector at the bottom of the freezer door. I needed to replace that part. So I order the part and installed it. Now - I don't get any water at all. The saddle valve is fine - it is new and in the correct position. The ice is in the "on" position. The water line is active. Is there s

Ice wasn't a problem before I replaced the valve. By the way I ordered the part from Sears. Couldn't get the water hose in the (supposedly) new valve. I found a broken off hose in the valve. After pulling it out it went on fine. Sears said was shipped new from the factory. BS

The water works fine, but slow. The ice maker appears to work fine with the coils getting cold, but not ice. Not sure how long it was not in use, I just reconnected the water line, replaced both valve controls. This brought water to the door (slow but there) however no ice. Next I plan to replace the water filter as I am not sure how long it has been there. Any help fixing it myself..?

I have a Kenmore Elite side by side refrigerator/freezer and just had the ice dispenser motor replaced a month ago when we first moved in our new house. However, our daughter left the freezer door ajar over night and the ice melted on to the motor. It worked temporarily dispensing ice but I believe the ice motor dispenser 'froze up' after we shut the door and everything froze back up. Can I simply thaw the freezer out with hopes of 'unfreezing' the new motor?


It would not hurt the motor as they are built to be exposed to some degree of moisture if the defrost does not work i would check and see if something is jamming the actual mech. up. In my ice dispenser i had stuff fall in from the shelf's and seize ... Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

Ge side by side (psh25sgsa 3 yrs old) and the ice melts every few weeks in the freezer. Empty out the ice and everything is fine again for a couple of weeks. Checked the coil underneath and everything is fine. The fan in the freezer is a little noiser than usual. Something tells me it's related to the main control board. I heard that GE had a recall for defective control boards, but cannot find anything on GE's website. Replaced thermistor #4 and #5 but problem continues.


Hello. It appears that you may indeed have a defective control board, or it could be your defrost thermometer, Read on please. As you know, the self-defrost system has three functional components: 1. Defrost timer\015\012\015\012\015\012\0 ... GE Refrigerators

We purchased a new home which came with GE Stainless Steel side by side refrigerator model # GSS23WSTA SS less than two years ago. Tonight when we came home, the ice maker/water dispenser motor is making a noise. Sort of like a loud motor running noise, near the top of the freezer section. Everything still works properly, including the water/ice dispenser on the front of the freezer door. I inspected what I could by removing the ice tray and everything looks as though it is in proper working ord

I have a Kenmore Side By Side Fridge 106.56596501 - 3 1/2 yrs old and the icemaker has stopped working. Checked the ice maker unit inside freezer, replaced water inlet valve, replaced clear tubing to icemaker, replaced water filter, checked for ice blockage in tubing and still nothing. No noise similar to what we used to hear when the water flowed into the ice cube tray. Water dispenses fine through front door dispenser. Any thoughts?

I have Whirlpool Gold Side by Side Refrigerator/Freezer (Model #gs6nvexsl. The ice is generated fine, but will not dispense. The dispenser itself does not make a sound (auger does) when I depress the button for ice. I think (correct me if I am wrong) I have isolated the problem to the ice dispensing motor (PN# AP4410923).

MSD2456DE. I just replaced th flapper on the ice dispenser and everything was working fine. At lunch the nexd day we kept hearing a click every few minutes, by evening, water was driping and we discovered that ice cream and everything in the freezer was thawing. Would the circuit board connection on front of the door caused this frig to get stuck in the defrost mode? Help would be appreciated.


No, the circuit board mounted inside the ice dispenser on the door has no control over the defrost mode. Furthermore, the problem you appear to be having is not with the defrost system, rather the compressor attempting to start, but failing. This cou ... Maytag Refrigerators

There is a smell coming from my KitchenAid Superba refrigerator and it smells like glue. I've changed the filter and the ice maker was replaced because it stopped working. We thought it was the motor in the ice maker that caused the smell, but now that it is replaced, it is worse. The water is even worse than it was before - it smells like glue. Do you know what it could be? I've cleaned everything out of the frig. It is cooling ok, no problems there.
