This is not an easy fix. You will have to try and remove the ice maker to gain access to the power conductors feeding up to the ice maker unit. Remove any screws that look like they are holding the unit in place. I can not give you exact screw by screw instructions. There are so many models and they all are a bit different. Try to pull the unit out where you can access the plastic connectors that bring power and control to the unit. Unplug and replug connectors back in. This sometimes restores power.
HI. I am assuming that when you typed (LOST ALL POWER), you are referring to a no power state with the entire refrigerator unit. If this is the case. I recommend inspecting the power cord for lose fit and connection points at the junction section on the back side of your unit. After you have confirmed that the unit is receiving full power from the power outlet, this will confirm that the main control board has failed, and it should be replaced asap.
Now, if the unit is working and cooling/freezing properly, but the ice maker and dispenser are not producing ice and water, this will lead to a faulty inlet valve assembly.
The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.
The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors
Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.
Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush
or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).
Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

We have the Kenmore 106.5703.601 side by side with an ice maker. We lost power for a whole day. The power is back, but the ice maker does not dispense ice. Water is dispensed through the door fine, and there is ice in the ice maker, but the ice maker will not kick out the ice. The manual is useless, in identifying the working parts. So, what is a mother to do? help, Mom in MD

The water tube in my GE (side by side refrig) ice maker keeps freezing. When the ice tray does not get the water, it calls for more. the water ends up spraying all over the inside and freezing because the tube keeps freezing up. If I take the tube out once a day I can sometimes prevent this. I can never leave the ice maker on for extended periods of time. I have lowered the freezer temp and reduced the water feed to try and help but this has not helped.
I'd say that micbeth1981 has some good thoughts on this one. I'd also suggest checking to make sure the tube that extends from the exterior of the freezer into the icem ...

When I turned water supply back on the fridge I got water to the drinking water dispenser but not to ice tray. Power to fridge was turned on the day before the water supply.

Kenmore 21.7 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice & Water with Water Filtration 4659267
WHIRLPOOL GS5SHAXNQ00 CONQUEST ICE - WATER DISPENSER PROBLEM: Our 2004 ice - water dispenser starting dripping water from both sides after we came back from 3 months away. The ice cubes were somehow melting a bit even though the freezer temp was 0 to -10 degrees. We took the ice cubes out and now thick frost is forming in the ice bin but no dripping. On the water side, it just drips - not huge amounts but enough that we need a small towel there. I'd appreciate any help.

Our GE Ref., side by side, model GSS22WGPH-CC, won't put water to the ice cube maker. It still crushes ice, but the water won't come into the tray. I can repair it myself, but not sure if it's the ice maker itself or possibly something else. Any help I could get would be helpful.

I lost power for several days during Hurricane Ike. When the power came back on, I cleaned out the ice maker bucket and let it make new ice. It makes ice and the light comes on when you press the dispenser lever, but it makes no sound and no ice comes out. Then 2 days ago I had to change the Pur water filter on the refrigerator. When I ran some water into a cup, I noticed the water was coming out much faster than usual. When I filled the cup and pulled it away, the water kept running all ov

Ice maker my ice maker is not making ice and the drinking fountain on the external part of the door is not giving water, but there was a slow drip there.

I have a GE side by side refrigerator. Model#GSS25VGMD and every day I have to chip an inch of ice off the bottom of the freezer. I noticed water on the inside bottom of the freezer and thought it was the ice maker so I shut it off and turned the water line to it off and that was not the problem cuz everyday I open the freezer door and there is a puddle of water in the bottom that later freezes and turns into a thick layer of ice. Help please!! -STEVE-

I have a GE ZISS360DRJSS side by side fridge. The water is not dispensing from the door. It makes ice without any issues. I changed the water filter which did not help. I turned off the entire fridge/freezer overnight in case it was frozen water line, the same problem remains. Also, frost forms in the ice dispensing chute. I believe there is a flap that is supposed to close when the ice dispenser is not in use to keep the cold in/warm out, this is not closingr. Any ideas how to fix these
They could be related with the open door allowing the line to freeze.Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if ...
