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:

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:

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!

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!

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!

Ice maker stalled out, made excessive noise trying to evacuate completed ice cubes

There are basically three screws that hold the unit in place on the inside of the freezer. Removing them is relatively easy, and the unit is replaced with the same three screws. You do have to use the formed metal wire from your old unit, so don't throw it out! You also have to use the wiring harness from your old unit.

Black flecks in the ice

I made use of instructions for other users, see 'My ice maker has been shedding.....' and they were very helpful. The one problem not covered - the instructions that came with the new icemaker said to 'remove the bearing and inlet from the old icemaker and install in the new icemaker', but gave no instructions for how to accomplish this.

The old inlet has a square opening in the back and a u-shaped knockout in the side. The new one has a round opening in the side and square knockout in the back)

After several attempts to remove them, I gave up and used the new inlet with the knockout removed. I did not attempt to cover the side opening and it worked fine that way - no leaks.

Leaky ice maker - non-stick coating had failed

replaced the entire ice make - 3 screws and a squeeze -off connector and it's out. Reverse to re-install... except that the fill tube had iced up. To thaw the fill tube: unload freezer section (leave food in fridge, but keep door closed), remove ice maker. Boil water, dip drill bit (dull end) into hot water, swirl around, insert (dull end) into to fill tube. Depending on how hot you got it, maybe a tablespoon of ice will melt. Repeat many times - fill tube is about 14" long! Do not use anything sharp - you will nick the tube and ice will form causing you to repeat this procedure. Do not try to break the ice - let the heat work. It took me about 30 minutes to thaw the whole thing - it made a nive gasping noise when the final plug opened up. Re-install ice maker.

Quit making ice

Loosen the screws on the sidewall (don't take them all the way out and drop them on the floor as I did) and remove the screw from the bottom bracket. Change out the electrical wires and the wire level sensor that does not come with the new unit. Put the new one in place and give it some time to cool down and make ice ( don't be impatient like I was and think the new unit was bad or that you replaced the wrong part)

Not making ice

the diagnosis was the most difficult step.. and trusting that the one visible nut was the only thing holding it on.. (there are 2 other clips that you need to use a little force on to detach). remove the ice maker (one nut, 2 clips, detach plug).. then remove the 3 screws holding on the 'face' , pry face off, you will see where the 'contact' has burned/melted/worn away. replace unit. 80% of the time, this is the problem (according to my research)

Ice maker stopped dispensing, and the ice maker started to leak forming icicles in the freezer

My freezer started acting up in 2 ways. They were separate problems, so I'll describe them seperately.

#1 - The Ice Maker started leaking. This was pretty straight forward. When we turned the ice maker on, eventually after a couple hours icicles would start to form near the front. I bought a replacement Ice Maker, and fixing this was incredibly easy. There's a video about it on this website, and after following it exactly, the new replacement was in and working very quickly.

#2 - This refrigerator must've been quite old. The next problem was the enclosure which holds onto the Augur Drive Motor. The plastic and the 4 screws that hold onto the motor all rusted off, making the motor basically fall backwards becoming completely useless. It's too bad there's no video on how to replace this part, because there's more moving parts with this one. Here are the steps I had to take to replace the enclosure:

1. First I had to remove the Enclosure Divider (PS107595). Push right to remove the 2 grips at the top, then pull back then up to remove it.
2. Unscrew the enclosure using a socket or nutdriver
3. (1st hard step) unplug the motor from the back of the fridge. This is hard because the cord is relatively short, and the enclosure takes up a lot of space. Remember to turn off the power before doing this step!
4. Unscrew all the machine parts from the enclosure (Augur Motor, Solenoid, Yoke, etc...) This was actually quite difficult because a couple of screws were placed on extremely tight. We basically had to break the old enclosure into little pieces before we could unscrew everything. The last screw actually needed to be undone using vice grips. That's how tight they were
5. In order to place the Augur Motor on the new enclosure, you have to remove the engagement yoke from it. This also was tightened on too tight. I had to use vice grips to hold the base still while hitting the yoke hard with a hammer to get it loose. It only came lose after maybe 1 hour of failed attempts. I supposed patience paid off on this one. If it doesn't come off, just give it a few tries every few hours so you come at it with a clear head.
6. Attached all the components to the new enclosure
7. Reattached the engagement yoke back onto the Augur Motor (give it a light tap with a hammer or screw driver so it's fastened well... not TOO much though!)
8. Plug the motor back into the fridge, place the enclosure back into the freezer, then put the divider back in

The parts that were difficult for me were:
- Screws were WAY too tight. My dad thinks they might've used glue to make sure they're fastened on tight. Don't do this! It only makes maintenance in the future difficult
- The engagement yoke was also on too tight. This might actually be from turning ice this whole time, but it's also possible someone overdid it or used glue here too. Don't overdo it when replacing the parts!
- Lastly, and I didn't mention this in the instructions, but in order to get the solenoid off the old enclosure, I had to unplug everything so I could safely smash the old enclosure to pieces to get at it. When I did this, I forgot to take pictures of what plugs go where. When it came time to put it back together, I *think* the wires are in the right place now. The machine works, but hopefully I didn't put everything in backwards. Take photos of how wires are plugged in before you unplug them!!
