SOURCE: Ice maker not making ice

Same thing happened to me. I unplugged the refrigerator, plugged it back in and it worked. I guess the computer system reset itself. Easy fix.

SOURCE: Ice maker only makes cubes. It will not make crushed ice.


Kindly check it could be because of following reasons :

  • Freezer may not be cold enough.
    Temperature must be 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) or colder to work properly.
  • Normal ice making capacity.
    The ice maker will produce between 2.5 to 4.0 pounds of ice a day depending on your model. Side-by-side models come with a large ice bucket and it may take up to three days to fill this container.
  • Water supply valve may not be completely open.
    Open valve completely.
  • Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough.
    Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
  • Water filter may need changing.
    If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
    Please feel free to contact for further assistance

    The ice maker

    see this causes and fix it. God bless you

    Makes to much ice or won't shut off.

    Check shutoff arm. This may be hung up on ice or food item.

    Makes no ice.

    Check shutoff arm. Check to make sure it is getting water, check water solenoid. Check water supply line it may be frozen or plugged up. Check freezer temperature to low of a temperature could cause the line to freeze up. Check for power at motor. You will need to remove the ice maker. Find the leads that go to the auger and connect a voltmeter. Press the dispenser lever you should have power if not replace the control board or micro switch. Check control switch or microswitch. Put icemaker in test mode. Only some are equipped.

    Ice cubes to large or small.

    Adjust size by removing cover and turn adjustment screw + or -. Check water solenoid. Check water supply line. Make sure it is level.

    Ice tastes bad

    Clean ice tray. Check supply line. Check water solenoid. Change filter. Run at least a 3 gallons of water thru the line after replacing filter this will flush all old water.

    Ice is discolored.

    Skunky water/ice.

    It will be good to clean well the full line leading to the filter.Since when the filter is changed you must make sure the supply lines had not been clogged. Now drain out the water for sometime after the new filter is changed as it will have a chemical smell. Flush off for sometime before you can start using. There cannot be any other reason than this , make sure there is no fault in the water inlet line.
    Hope the filter that was changed was the original component. Hope you check this out. Good day

    Turned Whirpoll ED22PE off and moved to install new flooring. Put back to previous location, connected water and elect...would not make ice. Someone said it has a temp sensor and must be 10 deg b4 making...

    If the water valve is leaking a bit, it will cause freezeup, as will a flow restriction. The 'water splashed inside freezer' sounds like leaky shut-off valve.

    Sometimes those 'saddle pirecing' water shutoff valves get restricted, so you are not getting enough pressure.

    Also, if you had things disconnected, a little bit of grit may be in the filter or shut-off valve, causing issues.

    I would:

    a) check the house water pressure, to make sure it's normal

    b) check/clean/replace fridge water filter

    c) inspect/replace saddle valve and look for kinked water feed line

    d) backflush water out of fridge, if possible, and look at clean/inspect/replace water valve.

    Although they do make add-on heater kits for water maker feed lines, your issue just sounds like a water flow issue...either a leaky valve or a flow restriction.

    No ice and no water

    Does it make Ice OK? If so the ice-water valve may be at fault if neither work.
    Eliminate water filter or frozen line to reservoir.
    Make sure you have water to water valve
    Shut off water, remove line, open water line. Catch water in container and examine. Clean on particles let it flush out some more open and close til clean. Verify pressure and flow.
    Still no water?
    Check voltage with a volt meter at the fill valve behind the refrigerator.
    Attach volt meter to the coil wire plug just insert probes into them. Then push the button on the door like your getting water. No volts? If has Ice maker pull off the other set of wires on water valve and recheck with door switch. Still no power? Problem in the ice - water door relay or control board.
    If these check OK water valve is not opening when power applied replace water valve. Power shows good replace water valve.

    Ice from ice maker does not taste right


    Ice storage bin needs to be emptied and washed. Unsealed packages in the refrigerator and/or freezer compartments may be transmitting odors/tastes to the ice cubes.
    Interior of the refrigerator may need cleaning.
    Water chemicals. Installing an in-line filter can help with many odor/taste complaints.
    An open box of baking soda in the refrigerator section can help with preventing the transmitting of food odors.
    This is a common in-line water filter, they are fairly easy to install and usually come with instructions.

    Even when your well or municipal water supply provides healthy, potable water to your ice maker, some impurities may remain. These can affect the smell or taste of the ice cubes, and therefore the beverages in which you serve them. A taste and odor water filter on the incoming water-supply line--such as our charcoal "Universal Replacement Water Filter"--can help a lot.

    Also, over time, the ice cube bin can absorb difficult-to-remove odors from the freezer. Some manufactures recommend that you replace the bin every 2 to 3 years, whenever it seems to be retaining objectionable odors and transferring them to the ice cubes.

    A Fixya Rating would be appreciated.

    Ice maker won't make ice after replacing water filter -plugged

    I've had the discolored water before when replacing the filter. It normally means that there was gunk in the water line.

    Do you still hear the ice maker trying to draw water in?
    If not, the water pump might be burnt out.

    If so, see below.

    The water lines that feed the dispencer and the ice maker split after a certain point.

    It's possible that the line that feeds the ice maker might be clogged. You should be able to get to it by removing a few screws and pulling off the back panel of the fridge. Then you can check them out and remove the clog.

    Comment on the post if more helps is needed.

    Ice maker not working

    is there a filter on the water line? if so check and replace as neccesary-usually all water going into a fridge ice maker is filtered if it was installed properly for fresh tasting ice......if not there usually is a valve where the water line connects to one of your houses water line careful with that but make sure it is all the way open......maybe try cleaning or replacing the lines if it comes down to it. let me know what happens.
