Question:

The cube sizes coming out of my icemaker in the fridge are not a good size. Is the icemaker adjustable in the sense that I can pick the size of the cubes or at least make them smaller. If so where is it/how do I do it?

Pam
Answer:

Hi Pam, great question! On the right side of your assembly there should be a small, white, plastic screw. Using this, you should be able to adjust the size of the cubes. I hope this helps.

Question:

My icemaker is over flowing and running right out of the freezer door. I feel like the water is not shutting off properly and the tray is over flowing which is causing the running water. Does this sound right? If so, what’s the most likely culprit?

Lucy
Answer:

Hi Lucy, we recommend checking your water valve 12001414 for damage. A faulty water valve is most likely the cause in this case. Best of luck with this repair!

Question:

My freezer is making weird noises and I fear its coming from the ice maker and that I have to replace it. Im not very handy but I don’t want to spend money on this part and a repair person. How hard is replacing it and do you think I need to replace it? It sounds like a tapping or clicking… not a normal freezer sound.

Jasper
Answer:

Hello Jasper, unfortunately if your icemaker is making a clicking sound, that is a sign that it needs replacing. You can order that here D7824706Q. As for the installation process, it is not a difficult repair. You will need to remove a few screws, unplug the wires to the assembly, and attach the new one. Please let us know if you have any further questions!

Question:

Replaced ice maker not long ago, now water won't get through, leaks in rear of refrigerator. What part do i need, and is it difficult to install?

John for model number PTB2153GRW
Answer:

Hello John, thank you for contacting us. If the water is not making it to the ice maker, it could be from a frozen water line which can be thawed with a hair dryer or hot water. Also if the water valve is faulty the water would not make it to the ice maker and could be leaking at the connections. Both of these would cause leaking at the rear of the fridge. You can test the water valve with a multi-meter to determine if it is faulty. Hope this helps!

The water on our ice maker isnt shutting off and runs water into the ice bucket eventually creating a huge block of ice. We replaced the water inlet valve but it's still doing the same thing.

Vanessa
Answer:

Hi Vanessa, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately that probably means that your ice maker itself is malfunctioning and will need to be replaced. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

My fridge is a Maytag made by Whirlpool. The model number is correct but no one seems to be able to match it exactly. My ice maker stopped making ice. The auger turns but there is no ice in the bucket to dispense. I changed out the water valve but it made no difference. Since the motor turns the auger, do i have to replace the entire unit or is it a part like the thermostat that needs replacing?

Kirby for model number MF12269VEM10
Answer:

Hi Kirby, Thank you for your inquiry. If your ice maker has stopped making ice and you have already replaced the water inlet valve, you will need to check both the ice maker itself and the defrost heater. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

The ice maker is not making ice... there doesn't seem to be any water coming to ice maker. there water dispenser in the refrigerator portion is working properly. thank you

Victoria for model number JFC2087HRS
Answer:

Hi Victoria, Thank you for your question. I would suggest testing your water inlet valve. The valve has two solenoids, one for your water inlet valve and one for your ice maker. It could be that the solenoid for your ice maker might be malfunctioning. You can test your part with a multi-meter. This test is fairly simple, all you have to do is set you multi-meter to the lowest setting. The calibrate it until the needle is on zero. You will then take each prob to the terminals inside of the plugs for each of your water inlet valve's solenoids. If the solenoid is reading 500 - 1500 ohms, then your valve is fine. However if your reading is close to or stays on zero, you will have to replace your valve. Also check your fill tube as well, it could be that there is an ice build up in the tube and it is blocking water from getting to your ice maker. I hope this helps you. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

When the ice cubes from my automatic ice maker melt, they release small white flakes of flocculant material that settles to the bottom of the glass. The cartridge water filter is only 4 months old, and the 'replace filter' light is not illuminated. The water coming from the chilled water dispenser does not have the white flakes. Does the water for the ice maker go through the cartridge filter? Any idea what the problem/source might be for the flakes in the ice cubes? Thanks. \km

Kim for model number JBR2088HES (JennAir refrigerator)
Answer:

Hi Kim, Thank you for your inquiry. The white flakes that are appearing in your ice are caused by calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate which are found in hard water. Calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate are harmless, but if you want perfect, flake-free ice cubes, you will need to soften your water. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

The ice maker in the freezer section of my Jenn-Air (your website says manufacturer part number d7824706q- the data plate inside the fridge says part number uki2500axx) ) is leaking water into the ice pan. The ice maker works, it makes ice, the bail works but i am getting a block of ice forming in the ice pan every few days. I looked under the ice mold when water was running in from fill cup and it appears that water is leaking along the front edge of the mold and i suspect the ice maker needs to be replaced (it's 13 years old.) also, i am finding a glaze of ice on the floor of the freezer and, occasionally (once or twice a week), a small puddle of water on the floor under the fridge. It appears to me that water is working its way down through the freezer from the ice maker because i' have found ice on top of food items on the shelves as well. The ice maker looks like it would be easy to replace based on internet research and your website. I am wondering about the occasional puddle of water on the floor and whether the water inlet valve should also be replaced or if the water from inside the freezer is working it's way to the outside. Based on your opinion I'll order parts to replace the ice maker. Thanks.

Rick for model number JCB2389GRS (Rev. 13)
Answer:

Hi Rick, Thank you for the question. When the ice maker is leaking it can cause the puddle you are getting. I suggest replacing the ice maker first as it will need to be replaced to fix the block of ice in the ice cube pan and see if that fixes the issue. You can also remove the backing from the appliance and take a rag, wrap it around the valve and check it after 24 hours to see if it is wet. Hope this helps!

Question:

Why is my ice maker leaking ? I took it out ,its not cracked and sometimes it stopped leaking for a bit then started leaking again.

Vincent for model number ABB2524DEB
Answer:

Hi Vincent, Thank you for your question. I would suggest figuring out where your leaking is coming from first. If it is coming from below the ice maker tray, then it is likely you will need to replace your ice maker. However if the leaking is happening because the tray is being over filled with water, you should test your water inlet valve with a multi meter to see if it is working correctly. It could be that the solenoid for your ice maker has failed. If your valve is fine, you will need to replace your ice maker. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

I recently replaced the water inlet valve and I still have no water going to the ice maker. Do I need to replace the ice maker?

Gary
Answer:

Hi Gary, Thank you for the question. If the valve did not fix the issue then the icemaker is not telling the valve when it send water to fill the icemaker. To fix this the icemaker will need to be replaced. Good luck with the repair!

Question:

In response to my recent question, you explained that the white flakes that are appearing in my ice are caused by calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate which are found in hard water. Someone else suggested it might have something to do with the inline water filter. I removed the filter and made a couple batches of new ice cubes. These new cubes have 90% less flakes than before! So, i then installed a brand new water filter and continued to make more cubes. The flakes have returned full force!! any thoughts? thanks.

Kim for model number JBR2088HES
Answer:

Hi Kim, Thank you for contacting us. So the water filter will not actually remove those salts and calcium from your water. It is meant more for the larger debris. To get rid of the salts and calcium in your water, you would have to use a water softener. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

My ice-maker is not dumping the ice, so when it refills the water runs inside the freezer. Then I would reach in and knock the cubes down and about two days later it starts making ice. What would you suggest to take care of the problem?

John for model number JRSD229A
Answer:

Hi John, Thank you for the question. Sounds like you have a bad heating element. The heating element warms up and allows the ice cubes to dump. If this is broken your cubes will form but will stay in the ice tray. The element is only sold as part of the ice maker so the ice maker will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Question:

I installed the new ice maker per instructions with out replacing the water valve. The ice does not come out as fast as the old one. What do i need to do?

robert for model number UKI1500AXX
Answer:

Hi Robert, Thank you for your inquiry. There are a few reasons you are experiencing slow ice production from the ice maker. You may have a clogged water filter and you may have to replace it. The freezer temperature in your refrigerator may be too warm. The ice maker must be set at 15 degress F to produce ice and the temperature in the freezer should be set to zero degrees F. If there is a low food load in the refrigerator or freezer section the production ice can slow down. The reason for this is that more food in the refrigerator allows the temperature to remain more stable. Also, if the ice cubes being made are small, you may have blockage in the water lines and this slow the production ice making as well. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

Seems like the ice freezes but does not eject in the ice bin? Do you think i need to replace the whole unit?

Christopher for model number KBFA25ERSS
Answer:

Hi Christopher, Thank you for your inquiry. If the ice maker is not making ice there are a few parts that you will have to check out. You will need to check the replacement ice maker, the water filter, the dual water valve, the water fill cup and bearing, the ice stripper, the ice maker shut-off arm and the water filter bypass cap. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

Our ice maker stopped making ice. Then one day water started to come out and wouldn't stop. We are wondering if we need a new water valve or a new ice maker?

Nicole for model number MFC2061HEW3
Answer:

Hi Nicole, Thank you for the question. It sounds like you need to replace the water inlet valve. Sounds like it became detective and stopped sending water and is now not closing to stop sending water to the ice maker. What you can do is turn the water off to the appliance and then pour a glass of water into the ice maker to see if it makes ice as normal. If the ice maker works as it should then the valve will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Question:

Icemaker is making ice very slowly. Handle seems to be stuck in the up position.

Penny for model number ASD2626HEW
Answer:

Hi Penny, Thank you for your inquiry. I would suggest checking the temperatures inside of your appliance. Sometimes if the temperature is not cold enough your ice maker will make ice slower. If everything is checking our with your thermostats, you may have to look into replacing your whole ice maker. I hope this helps. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

I have installed the new ice maker I ordered but it does not work. It has not cycled, or responded to inserting wire in test ports as per troubleshooting instructions. Wiring harness seems ok and is plugged in properly. How can I check to see if I have power to the module? Or might I have a different issue going on. Original problem was the ice maker was overfilling and putting water in ice bin. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Charlie
Answer:

Hi Charlie, Thank you for the question. One thing you can try is to fill the ice maker with some water just by dumping some water in the tray with a cup of water . If it cycles and makes the ice as normal it might be the water inlet valve. If the valve is defective it can over fill the ice maker causing it to leak water into the ice bin or not fill the ice maker or fill enough to allow it to go into the cycles and make ice. If the ice maker is still not making ice it sounds like a defective part. Hope this helps!

Icemaker producing few or no cubes and often leaving "kling-ons" on ice tray

Interior surface of ice tray felt rough & flaky (coating deteriorated) so cubes would not release.
Unplug appliance.
Remove timer cover by hand pressure @ edge.
Remove single attachment screw & bracket at lower front of icemaker.
Disconnect wiring harness from socket @ rear of compartment.
Tricky part was determining what type of connection held the other two attachment points along the long edge of the icemaker. I did not have repair manual or useful drawing but looked @ PartsDirect pic of side brackets & used a small mirror to confirm that mine were also some sort of "snap in" attachment.
Remove icemaker unit by pushing upward and outward on the unit. I takes a good bit of pressure and will pop loose, but be careful not to break attachment bracket from freezer wall.
Scavenge shut off bar and wiring harness from old icemaker once you have it out & attach to new one before installing it back in freezer.
Again, you might find a mirror useful to align those pesky snap-in brackets with the new unit.
Since you probably kept your freezer running while waiting for the part, the plastic snap-ins will be cold and brittle. I warmed them up first by applying a dampened cloth heated in the microwave to make them a little more pliable.
A good push of the new unit towards the snap-ins along with some upward force will get it stable.
Reattach the metal screw in bracket & connect the wiring harness to rear plug... and don't forget to plug the whole thing back in.
It will take awhile for the first batch of cubes dump as the timer may need to cycle completely around to get to the fill cycle... be patient.
Dump the first couple of batches of cubes just to make sure you're free of any residue.

Ice maker stopped making ice.

I removed the failed ice maker and performed a post-mortum to detemine the root-cause of the failure. Removal began with me reaching behind the icemaker and disconnecting the power to the icemaker. Then I removed the single screw that attached the supporting "L" bracket located on the bottom of the icemaker unit. I then carefully lifted the bottom of the icemaker away from the wall. This move disengaged the two plastic latching features that anchored the top of the icemaker to the refrigerator wall. I could then pull the unit out so that I could inspect it for the problem.

I have had experience with failed icemakers of similar design in the past and there is a fundamental weakness in their design. The small electric motor that is used to activate the various steps involved in making the ice moves a set of copper finger contacts around a circular track. During this movement, these contacts frequently make and break the electrical circuit that turns on the small heating element that is used to lightly thaw the ice so that the extraction fingers can more easily sweep the latest batch of ice cubes from the ice making tray. This making and braking of contacts can occur several times a day. Over the lifespan of the icemaker, this making and braking of the contacts erodes the contact fingers and also builds up a residue of carbon that ultimately results in the loss of electrical contact between the fingers and the copper track that it normally rides upon. Once the electrical contact is lost, the icemaking process comes to a grinding halt.

Installing the replacement icemaker was a breeze. I just reversed the order of the previous steps and after reconnecting the power cable to the icemaker, it was back in the icemaking business. Of course there was a waiting period of approximately one hour before any ice was forthcoming since the new icemaker had to cold soak before it was ready to make the first batch. It has made ice consistenly since the installation.

Water overflowed ice maker turnning ice bucket into solid mass of ice

My ice maker has been shedding its non-stick coating for over a year. Within the last month of so, it started pouring water into the ice bucket below, turning it into a solid mass of ice. So I purchased a new ice maker assembly. I encountered two problems not mentioned in the 21 or so do-it-yourselfer repair stories that precede this one. First problem: one of the three screws that hold the ice maker to the refrigerator wall is hidden behind the large (black) end of the ice maker and is difficult to access. Before trying to replace the ice maker, make sure you have the physical dexterity to remove that screw. Second problem: it is not apparent how to remove the wire harness that plugs into the ice maker assembly. BEFORE you can remove the wire harness, you MUST remove the large white cap that covers the black end of the ice maker assembly and then push in a retaining tab to release the wire harness. If you don't do this, the wire harness will not release. Other than those two problems, it was relatively easy to remove three screws, unplug the wire harness, transfer three small, metal parts from the old ice maker to the new, plug in the new wire harness, mount the ice maker assembly so that the water tube is in the proper position, and then re-install the three screws. The ice maker works fine now. (P.S. I was told by an expert that the real problem might be a malfunctioning fill valve. I would have replaced the fill valve if replacing the ice maker assembly had not fixed the problem.)

Ice maker was leaking water and causing ice globs in ice bucket.

Parts were available at the locat applicance store, but the cost was 20-25% higher than ordering through Parts Select (including shipping) + it was delivered in 3 days right to the house.

Removing and replacing the ice maker was fairly straight forward. Tight quarters to work in, but managable.

1. With the freezer turned off, uplug the ice maker power cable at the back of the freezer.
2. Remove the four phillips head screws and ice bucket rail to the side of the freezer. I found it was easier to re-install the new ice maker with the rail clear off.
3. Loosen the two upper hex head screws holding the ice maker (requires a nut driver).
4. Lift the ice maker up and off of the upper screws.
5. With the ice maker out of the freezer, remove the power cable from the old ice maker and re-install on the new ice maker. At this point, both the front cover and the on/off lift bar can be transfered from the old ice maker to the new one.
6. Slip the new ice maker down over the two upper screws making sure the lower mounting tab is behind the ice bucket rail. Make sure the hole on lower mounting tab lines up with screw hole.
7. Re-install the ice bucket rail and tighten all screws. Make sure the water supply tube is lined up correctly feeding into the ice maker.
8. Re-connect ice maker power cable at the back of freezer and turn freezer back on.

It took about 4 hours for the first ice to generate. It cycled normally after that. No more leaks or ice globs in the ice bucket.

Not making ice

Installed new ice maker. It was easy - loosen two screws and unplug old wire harness. Put new unit in place. Did not realize new unit would not come with wire harness, but transferred old one to new ice maker (easy) and, "voila" some ice in 24 hours -- much ice since then. I am a 68 year old woman and it was "sort of fun" doing this job.

Getting "black plastic" pieces on ice

I didn't know what the plastic was - just that it was unappetizing. Reading other posts, it must have been the teflon coating. The refrigerator is 13 years old and reading other posts, I guess I'm lucky it lasted that long.

My boyfriend did the repair and here is his story:

The first ice maker we received was cracked on one corner. Not knowing how it got that way, I was concerned that there might be additional internal damage and that the unit wouldn’t work properly. Part Select was contacted and a replacement unit was sent with no difficulty.
As other reviewers have said, the replacement was quite easy, taking less than half an hour. The only tools I needed were a screwdriver and a nut driver. To begin, unplug the refrigerator and turn off the water supply to the ice maker. Loosen, but do not remove, the two top attachment screws. Then remove the bottom screw. Lift the unit up off the top screws and remove the water inlet hose at the top right. It’s probably a good idea to have a container handy to catch the small amount of water that comes out, but you’ll need a third hand for this.
The electrical wiring harness is very short and may be tricky to disconnect. On my refrigerator there is a round vinyl connector that plugs into a receptacle on the back wall of the freezer compartment directly behind the ice maker. This was removed with no difficulty (accidently, actually). Once the unit is out of the refrigerator you can remove the connector from the ice maker by using a screwdriver to depress the latch tab that is visible in a window in the unit housing. When installing the connector in the new unit make sure it is fully seated. Next, reconnect the round vinyl connector to the receptacle on the back wall of the freezer compartment. This was the worst part of the whole procedure. You have to support the unit close to the back of the freezer (due to the short harness) with one hand while inserting the connector with the other. This requires both arms in a confined space. The first time I did it I apparently didn’t get a good electrical connection on one end of the harness, and it didn’t work. Because the connectors are directly behind the ice maker I had to remove the unit and re-install it, but it was much quicker the second time, less than 10 minutes.
Once the connectors are in place put the water inlet hose into the opening at the top right. You may need to re-use the retaining clip from the old unit for this. Slide the two top mounting ears down between the screw heads and the back wall of the freezer compartment and tighten the screws. Then install the bottom screw. Plug in the refrigerator, turn on the water and make yourself a frosty beverage.
All in all, a relatively quick and painless procedure.

Another note - we kept saying "is there ice yet"? I think the metal bar that controls the ice maker needed to be raised and lowered a few times before it would work properly as it seemed to raise 1/2 way but the ice would not drop so I put it down and it worked its way up. Had to do it a couple of times over a 4 hour span but once going, it is working like a champ.

The refrigerator was not getting cold on the top.

I found a similar problem in your forum and desided to give it a shot. The evaporator fan had stop working. It took me a while to find it but I discovered it inside the bottom drawer. I took off the drawer to make it easy to get to. I took off the back cover and there it was. I unplug it and replaced it with the new one which did not look like it at all but since it was the one that I received I pluged it and it worked. I was very satisfied.

Icemaker was dumping water into ice bin and the ice maker shut off arm broke its rear mount

First I removed the 14.3 tons of freezer contents, closed the water valve, shut off the juice, and removed the freezer bins, the freezer door and the three screws that held the element in place. After bringing in 397 hand tools from my garage inventory, I loosened the unit and, after extensive evaluation, I finally disconnected the wiring connector from its freezer rear wall connector counterpart. You ain't gonna believe the rest of my story--of total ineptitude by an experienced fix-it-yourself dummy.

I searched the internet for a replacement ice maker and found it at partselect.com. I called Sears to ask if I could add my refrigerator to my existing appliance repair account. Sears said sure--it would cost me only one arm, three toes and one grandchild. I abruptly declined their magnanimous offer—I don’t give up my arms and toes so easily.

I visited the local Maytag repair parts and service retailer, who advised they didn't do parts anymore. Expecting their repair price would be greater than Sears, I resorted to partselect.com. I called them to be assured what I was buying was not mistakenly a 747 Landing Gear. On the afternoon (West Coast) of 4/28/10, I ordered (via internet) one PS21215123 Ice Maker Assy. Much to my pleasant surprise, it arrived via FedEX on 4/30/10 (no freight charges to me).

My repair/replacement efforts were hampered by the effects of my right rotator cuff surgery a few months before and major left wrist surgery two months ago to remove fractured bones and torn ligaments.

Undaunted by my physical handicaps, I forged forward. After re-installing the unit, I turned the water supply and electricity back on. It was graveyard dead. I wisely then bought two bags of ice as an interim solution to the severe needs of my wife and me for our daily chilled evening cocktails. I removed the unit, checked it out and re-installed it. I bought two more bags of ice. All the while, I turned the water and electricity off and on as required by reasonable safety standards. High tediousness!

Several more home maintenance tasks then arose for Sergeant Super Fixer, but I returned to the ice maker problem on 4/8/10. Last chance--remove the device and insure there was no frozen ice in the inlet tube--or call the local partsless repairman. No ice found, but I did learn the wiring connector to the unit was awry--no contact! While explaining that to my wife, I realized the two upper mounting screws were intended to be partially installed into the freezer wall to accommodate the unit's slotted mounting holes! Then, tighten the screws. Oh my God! During my 143 installations and removals, I had installed those screws blindly--using the (handicapped) skills of my right and left hands without any benefit of direct eyesight.

I returned to my challenging project this morning (4/9/10), fully utilizing all the expertise I had gained yesterday. Fifteen minutes of amusing effort! Turn on the juice! Turn on the water!Two hours later, ice cubes were dropping into the bin like rhinoceros bisquits in the jungle.

Hallelujah! I now am free for the next challenge!

HINT: Put a bed pillow (an old one, or your wife's) in the freezer compartment to soften the harshness of its cold metal on your back, if you use the "crawl in on your back" approach.

Ice maker was leaking water and causing the ice to freeze into a block

First I removed the Ice bin, I then loosened the ice bin rail under the ice maker and removed the screw that attached the bottom of the ice maker to the side of the fridge. I unplugged the power to Ice Maker from the back of the fridge and unscreewed the two screws that secured the ice maker to the fridge. This allowed the Ice Maker to be removed from the fridge. To replace the new ice maker I simply repeated the steps in reverse.

Icemaker leaked water into ice bin causing a glob of ice

Philips head screwdriver and ten minutes was all it took! I removed the two screws that hold the icemaker assembly in place, then pulled it out a little and disconnected the electrical plug freeing the icemaker assembly. Then I snapped the external parts off my old icemaker assembly and snapped them on the new icemaker assembly. Installing the new icemaker assembly was just as fast and easy. I snapped the electrical plug into the new icemaker assembly, then screwed in the two screws. It was making ice shortly thereafter. Glob free ice! I'm glad I didn't call a repairman. I probably saved a hundred bucks. A ten year old could accomplish this simple and easy task. No wonder the Maytag repairman has time on his hands.

Ice maker making large block of ice, level broken, pantry cover broken

Pantry Cover:

I just slided out the tray, and unscrewed the left pantry panel that was broken, and replaced it with the new one, then put in the new cover after sliding the trays back in.

Ice Maker:

I unplugged the power connector in the back, unscrewed the ice maker with a flat screw driver (3 screws), slide it out, and then unplugged the wiring from the old ice maker and put it into the new one, mounted the new ice maker back in, make sure the lever is working, and then closed the freezer to let it cool down so that water can start flowing to it when it becomes cold enough (took about a good hour or so before water started filling the ice maker). Once the freezer was cold enough, water started filling the ice maker, and it begin making ice again.

Ice maker broke at the begining of summer !!!!!!

The new Ice Maker Assembly arived in less than 24 hours. I was amazed that it came so fast.
