Ice maker quit working, then water dispenser quit working, then it quit cooling and started the clicking noise from behind the fridge. As far as I can tell the compressor and fan don't come on. The light in the fridge works, and the water and ice dispenser seem to work. No cooling though. Seems like something is tripping and keeping the compressor/fan from starting? Is there a reset switch for the compressor?


The compressor and compressor fan are controlled by the relay.its called compressor relay.if the fan and compressor is not coming on then its compressor relay that has to be replaced.also the noise can be from defrost timer as it does not function if ...

I have a GE Monogram model #ZISW42DSB. The ice maker quit working, I had a repairman out, and without really looking at it, he said it was the diverter which is underneath the refrigerator, and he couldn't get to it, without pulling the frige out, which meant we would have to pull up tile. My son was fiddling around with the icemaker, and it started making ice again. Last night the ice maker started making a loud noise, and quit making ice. There is no water in the icemaker itself. Do you t


You will have to see if the ice maker itself is getting water,there is a valve,but it should be close to the ice maker,and see if it is the problem,the diverter valve has to do with more than one source,like water in the door for drinking,it redirect ... GE Refrigerators

I have a Kenmore 25351699100 side-by-side refrigerator. Both the freezer side and frig side quit working and started to warm up. Ice began to melt in the ice maker. Then several hours later it started working again. Then a day later the problem returned. Then it started working again. It continues this same cycle.


Several possibilities.One is that the relay is not making reliable contact. In which case it should just be replaced.Another is the defrost heater is turned on by opening the door.If the door switch was bad, and essenti ... Kenmore Refrigerators

I have a Bosch b20cs51sns that has two problems. First, the ice maker struggled then died. I haven't seen or heard the fan behind the ice maker running in quite a while. Does that directly affect ice making? Second, the refrigerator side randomly doesn't stay cool. It will work fine for a while and then it will start to warm. It doesn't get to room temp but pretty close. But as I said it will then start cooling again. Are these problems related? The unit is two years old.


Hi,Yes these problems could all be interrelated, but the actual problem could be tough to find...I would first check for power at the fan and see if that is the problem....if you have power and it is not running then, Bingo!! ... Bosch Evolution 500 B20CS50SNS

GE Profile PFSS6PKWASS ice maker quit, water and ice started forming inside the bottom left of refrigerator; GE repairman removed ice maker and said he was ordering a new one along with a new water cooling tank and vent (returning in a week).

We own a RF267AARS/XXA refrigerator. Ice maker works slow. Hardly ever makes a full tray of ice in 24 hrs. Then for no reason quits making ice for 2-3 days. I the pull the ice-tray out a couple of times and then within 6-10 hrs it'll start making ice slowly. We always get ice from the dispensor located on front door. We only pull ice-tray out when it quits making ice. Samsung RF267AABP i get one batch (about 6 pieces) of ice a day.   somebody help.


You'll have to read my in depth review on Epinions.com for answers. Sounds like you bought the updated version that over corrects the "too much" ice which jams the mechanism to where it breaks the unit. This is my second friggen Samsung as my 1st 4 d ... Refrigerators

My GE Profile Artica which uses a Model CAN17 Ice Maker has quit making ice. My brother in law who's a auto mechanic (which of course doesn't qualify him to fix it) took it out and opened it up moved some stuff and it started working again. However the happiness was short lived as 2 weeks after it restarted working again, it suddenly quit. Anyone know if these are serviceable? If not, anyone know a good online source for replacement? Thanks in advance.

Our Kenmore is a side by side with ice maker. It's about 6 years old. The ice maker quit making ice about a year ago. We didn't get it fixed. Now our refridgerator section won't cool. The freezer works perfect. We have unplugged the refridgerater for 36 hrs. then plugged back in...still no cooling. Temp is around 60 degrees. We baught a sensor for it around 5 bucks trying to start slow/cheap before getting into somthing bigger. What do we need to do.


Find the vent in the refrig that gets the air blown in from the freezer. When the unit is running you should feel air coming out of it. If not then you have a problem with the damper door. you can manually open the damper door but you might have t ... Refrigerators

Ice maker quit after my husband over filled the top shelf and blocked the air flow for the freezer. The freezer started to defrost itself and water was on the floor in front of the freezer. He unblocked the top shelf and the freezer works ok, but no water seems to be emptying into the ice maker now. Is there a fix for this without calling in a repair man?

Ice maker stopped working. Not delivering water to ice maker. Cleared all ice in the maker and the signal to show that the ice container is clear appears to be working. This has worked fine for several years but stopped working after the ice bucket was full for about a week and no ice was needed. Also replaced the water filter since the problem started and water is working fine.

First thing is the water dispencer quits working, all lights still work and the ice dispencer still works. The unit then quits blowing cold air. Does not blow any air at all. You can still hear the unit running. Everything starts thawing out and I have to take the ice collector out or it will run out the freezer door. After about seven hours it all starts working again. Strange because it all starts with the water dispencer stopping, do not know what this would have to do with the compressor not

Hi. You answered a question about a "sizzle" noise coming from the freezer of a GE Profile side-by-side. Your answer was "The sizzling in your case means that it is working....it is just water dripping from the cooling coil onto the hot element that defrosts it..." I just want to ask an additional question. We have turned off the water to the 'fridge, because it started leaking water onto the floor. And the ice maker quit about a year ago. And then yesterday, the "sizzle" noise started ha
