There's a temperature sensor that turns on the heat element long enough for the ice maker to dump the ice. If it fails it will stop dumping ice.

Hello margrek
Welcome,

YOU SAID, YOU HAVE KENMORE ELITE BOTTOM FREEZER WITH ICE MAKER THE ICE CUBES SMELL HORRIBLE ALWAYS, I EVEN TOSS THEM OUT EVERY FEW DAYS, STILL SAME PROBLEM


Ice has bad odor and taste.

1• Ice has picked up odor or
flavor from strong food stored
in refrigerator or freezer.
2• Water running to ice maker
has poor taste or odor.
3• Ice not used frequently enough.
4• Cover foods tightly. Discard stale ice. Ice maker will
produce fresh supply.
5• Add filter to water supply line. Consult a water purifying
company.
7• Discard stale ice.

Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck

Frigidaire bottom freezer spills ice when opened and I can't shut the drawer til I fish the ice cubes out.


You might be well served with a general defrost of the unit. But before you do, make sure that the mounting screws on the ice maker are fully in. Then if so, warm the lower surface of the ice maker where cubes are ejected with a hair dryer for a minute or two (medium not high). It could be that extraneous ice is catching the cubes. What does it feel like to the hand?

My freezer has ice on the bottom,we keep cleaning it out and the ice keeps coming back


Hi,
I need to ask, what kind of ice are we talking about, ice cubes or a slate? If cubes there is a gage that can be added to the ice maker arm to prevent this. If its a slab or slate, than I would look at the defrost drain system in the back of the freezer to be clogged. If no ice there, is it possible not all the water from the ice maker is getting into the ice maker?
I hope this helps or leads you in the correct direction.

Water dispenser inside fridge and ice maker in freezer part in bottom both quit working.


There can be many reasons for no water supply. Line feeding the refrigerator is clogged or blocked. The water control valve that turns water to ice maker and dispenser is defective or the water filter located inside your refrigerator is in need of change. I will be here to help you go through the steps. Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice Maker quit making ice cubes


Look on the bottom of the rectangular motor housing for the ice maker. This is the white box that holds the front end of the ice tray. In the past, this was normally a small patch of black 'runner' that covered the switch and helped kkep moisture out.

If you cannot locate it by feel, try using a small mirror and a flashlight to help you locate it.

Maytag bottom freezer ice maker problem of ice removal


Usually low water pressure to the fridge will cause this problem. Not getting enough water to the ice maker will cause the cubes to be too small and get jammed easier. Check to see if you are using a self piercing saddle valve on your water line. If so change it to a drill type valve. This will increase water pressure to the fridge. New ice makers will not solve the problem.
