Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

The ice maker has completely stopped making ice. Is there something commonly responsible for its failure?


Answers :

I would first follow water line for supply to ice maker. The line should go thru a filter then into a electric solenoid valve then on into your ice maker. I would verify that water was to filter inlet and outlet. If you have water to filter but not out then you will need to change filter. Follow water line to solonoid valve which opens when timer on ice maker calls for water. Make sure you have water to inlet of solenoid valve by slightly loosening compression nut on solonoid inlet. If you have water at that point then loosen compression nut on leaving side of valve and manually set timer on ice maker controls to call for ice and see if you have water there, Next check that water inlet line into your icemaker is not frozen up where it goes into your ice bin. I hope this helps you some. Thank you

We are in Australia and have had an Amana XRSS287BW fridge freezer with ice maker for 5 years. The freezer is icing up near the ice maker, the condensor is not icing up. It appears to ice up and the fan hits the ice making a noise? We have had a repairman fix it, he has been back 3 times and now believes the problem is with the ice maker. He has advised we will need a complete new ice maker. I find it difficult to believe that the ice maker cannot be repaired. Regards, Bob Beck

About once a week I find an icicle hanging from the back bottom of the ice maker. It's formed by water running out of the hole where the auger comes out the back. This has been happening for the last 6-8 weeks. It seems to happen when it is full of ice and the ice appears to be melting and running out the hole and making the icicle. It also will form a big frozen puddle under the icicle if there is something to catch it. I now have a little catch pan under the ice maker to keep from making an ev

KitchenAid KSCS25INSS01 ice maker intermittent failure. It periodically stops making ice for days. I noticed it occurs when there is heavy use on the RO unit that supplies it. The drop in water pressure causes the ice maker to slow down and then the water in the line feeding it freezes. I had a tech come out once to defrost the supply line in the freezer above the ice maker. It seems however, if I could start a defrost cycle the line would free up. That must be the explanation for the observatio

I have a side by side that has the ice maker in the door, when it makes ice cubes, they come out all connected and this makes it difficult to get ice to despense from the shoot and most of the time it will end up shooting a piece of ice on the out side of the container that you are trying to put ice in. It also will many times gather several pieces if ice in the shoot and lock the despenser open causing a large mess. Is there a way to adjust something to prevent this ? Thanks, Cliff

Hi, my fridge stopped producing ice some time ago however I though it was because we had to replace the filter. We did this and is still not making ice.

It attempts to but looks like it gets stuck on something or somethings is stopping it from flipping. Is there anything that I can do to fix this problem? Cheers, Emma.
