SOURCE: crushed ice only

Behind the ice bucket is a metal housing that holds the auger motor and solenoid.  The solenoid is bad.  When you go for cubed ice that solenoid should pull up the metal rod on the ice bucket so full cubes will come out.  First check to make sure the metal rod on the ice bucket isn't somehow caught under the solenoid and not letting if move up and down.  You can take out the ice bucket and press for cubed ice.  You should hear a loud clunk noise.  If not then you know the solenoid is not working.

SOURCE: water dispenser on front of refrigerator door does not dispense water. Ice Cube maker continues to make ice cubes. Defrosting doesn't fix problem.

Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.

SOURCE: Ice maker frozen on "crushed" ice mode

Check the bar below the icemaker bin. There is a gold color metal bar that goes from the front of the bin to the back and goes into a lever at the back of the freezer. If the bar gets on the wrong side of the lever it will be stuck in crushed mode.

SOURCE: Ice maker is crushing ice when cube ice button is on

We've had a similar problem, possibly the same, with our LG in-door ice maker. Whether cubed ice or crushed ice is selected, it crushes the ice.

We found that there is a little lever on the inside of the door, on the lower right behind the ice bin, which freezes in the down position. This is a literal "freeze up", as a block of ice forms in the little well under this switch and eventually freezes the switch in place. Since the switch needs to go up to provide cubed,.. we only get crushed. On 3 separate occassions we've thawed and chipped out (carefully) this little ice dam and gotten cubed ice capability back for a few weeks. At which point it freezes again. I have no idea why water collects there in the first place.

My ice maker inst working Whirlpoo; model gz25fsrxyy2


By "ice maker isn't working" do you mean it isn't filling with water, it isn't freezing the water in the ice maker, it isn't dumping the ice cubes into the bin, or it isn't dispensing ice cubes?
Was it previously working and it is not working now?

Typically one can hear the valve when it opens to fill the ice maker with water. Can you hear it attempting to do so? If so, and there isn't any water in the ice tray, check that there is water supplied to the valve at the wall and the valve is open. Is there a water filter? Has it been replaced per the manufacturer's recommendation? (Typically, the water filter should be replaced every six months.)

Is the "full" bar pushed up? It shouldn't be. The bar above the ice cubes should not be in the horizontal position. That position tells the ice maker the bin is full so it should wait until the bar goes down, indicating some ice has been used.

Can you hear the bayonet turning? Is the ice maker attempting to dump out cubes whether or not they exist? The next issue after you confirm there is water going into the ice maker that is being frozen and the ice maker knows to dump the ice, is the bayonet. There is a motor that turns the bayonet and a mechanical connection. Either could be at fault.

Ice maker on refrigerator does not work at all


Notwithstanding the ABSENCE of MAKE+MODEL...
(REFRIGERATER or ICEMAKER)...

Nothing came through with your "question"... ERGO

Most, generally & typically should be in front of everything that looks or sounds like a FACT.

Every ICE MAKER (I've ever worked on)has an on/off control...
Find it... turn it off, on, off & on several times (cycle the switch
(like lower the FILL wire ... or operate the on/off switch)).

ICE-MAKER heads are a relatively simple device with motor driven electro-mechanical sequencers that time water fill (adjustable), cube "done-ness" ((firmness by adjustable temperature)... and then "operate the fill valve... fill the tray...
Rotate the tray and eject the cubes.. refill with water...

If you can see or feel ice in your TRAY your...
you have NO ISSUE with your WATER VALVE...

To test this... use an ordinary water bottle and Put some water in your ICE TRAY...

Check back in an hour ...if your cubes have been NOT deposited into your ice bin... your ice-maker is turned off, has a open fuse or is defective & needs repair.

If it has ejected your cubes but you have not been refilled your WATER VALVE is defective...
replace it.

Hope this helps.

Help! Our ice cubes are frozen but not dumping and our tray is filling up with water fitting a solid sheet of ice. Can anyone help? Thanks


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field refrigeration technician.

It sounds like your ice maker has a bad motor module/circuit board.
It is like a control board. This module reads a temperature sensor that indicates the water is frozen and ready for harvesting the ice cubes. Then it turns on a electric heater under the ice cube mold, then turns on the motor to harvest the ice cubes. After the ice cubes are harvested, it opens the water supply solenoid valve to fill the mold with water. The ice maker needs to be replaced.

Water filter status has red light. Did not replace and now has green light and Ice maker stopped making ice.


Check the water inlet valve for any restrictions. You will need to shut off the valve from the household water supply before you disconnect the inlet tubing.

Check the screen that filter debris, If the screen is plugged, water flow will be restricted and the result will be small or layered ice cubes. Remove and clean the screen or replace the valve.

Inspect the ice maker mold to see if there are ice cubes present. If there are no cubes or very small cubes, then you should look for issues with the water fill system. Inspect the fill tube and the fill cup area at the back of the ice maker to make sure that they are not frozen. If there is an ice buildup in that area, confirm no foreign objects have disrupted the flow of water into the fill cup. If you find nothing the problem is definitely from the water inlet valve

I have a whrilpool refrigerater the ice maker will not fill with water?


Bonjour,
Ice makers can clog. The water valve can stick open or closed or even not work at all. The water fill nozzle can clog with ice or food. If the unit has been moved the water line could be kinked or the water filter may be clogged. Maybe the water valve for the ice maker water line is turned off. Is there one under the sink? Inside most ice makers there is a thermostat that tells the ice maker that the water is frozen and it's time to dump the ice cubes. That starts a geared motor running to dump out the cubes. And in some cases a mold heater is turned on to help break the ice cubes loose. A lot of ice makers have a cam attached to the motor that turns with the shaft. When the ice cubes are gone the cam starts a timer to refill the ice maker with fresh water to make some more ice cubes. Most "fill" cycles of ice makers are "timed fill". The fill cycle has to start and stop to get fresh water into the ice maker. There may be another thermostat that monitors the air temperature where the ice maker is mounted. If that thermostat thinks the air is not cold enough to freeze water nothing happens. If all the steps don't happen at the right time no ice cubes are made.

Ice cube shape


hoshizakis make ice cubes depending on the amount of water in the sump. if you are starving for water the sump only partially fills in the fill time allowed . then it makes ice until the water is used up and the float switch drops and the cubes are little slices. you can adjust the size of cubes you want by raising or lowering the float assembley in the sump. if its to low the water rises and the float rises and tells the machine you happy with little slices. if you raise it up to max height you can max fill before float satisfies and max ice cubes. But if you are starving for water the time to fill will run out before the sump fills and cubes will be small no matter where you set the floats assembly. water starving can be due to crud in the water line, to small a water line, most hoshizes take a half inch line ,or a clogged water filter. if you suspect a filter take it out . if fill is drastically improved you need a new filter. be aware that starving for water on a hoshizaki will eventually lead to broken evap plates. big time expensive.good luck. i put in a new machine ruined by starving water and the new one made little chips of ice real quick. i finally pulled the filter out and voila! big cubes and great production.

Small ice cubes The ice maker is not supplying enough water. The result is very small ice cubes. The water supply pressure is on max, can there be a way to adjust the water level? The tray is not even...


The ice maker is time filled, it only has a certain time in which to fill. There is no way to adjust the water level. Check the pressure limiting valve which is in the water line before the filter. Have you replaced the filter? Remove the filter and pressure limiting valve and see if the ice maker receives more water. If it does, then replace the filter and check again. If it is still good, the pressure limiting valve is faulty.
