The ice could be caused by a partial thaw such as a power failure. To open bin unplug unit. Get lots of towels and a wet Vac if you have one. The use of these will become obvious shortly. Open the door and put a fan blowing on it, the same type of fan we use when it is hot to cool down. Then wait in time it will start thawing. This would also be a good time to clean it inside, you probably were putting that off. When totally thawed and dry start it up and keep an eye on it for a few days it will probably be ok. If not you have a clean unit to try some of the other suggestions.

SOURCE: Ice maker has ice in it but will not dump in bin!

before i would worry about the lights flashing lets pull the front cover off of the icemaker and verify that the drive gear is not broken.

on the bottom of the icemaker is 1 screw. remove that screw then just slide the entire icemaker out of the refrig so that you can access the front cover. if the gear is broken just replace the front motor module pt# 8201515

if the gear is fine then located in the toe grille of your refrig is a tech sheet that will help you troubleshoot red light blinking.

SOURCE: Ice Maker not getting water Kenmore Side/Side 53642

2 things that could be wrong with these ice makers (Red light is solid, but no water to ice maker and My ice maker does not make ice and water is appearing on the floor). Either you have a defective water valve or your incoming tube is iced up. 2 ways to check:

1. Check your ice maker valve which is at the bottom of the refer. To find follow the water line into the back of the refer. it should connect to the water valve. Check and make sure there is 125V to the valve when it is in fill mode. Or look for and open condition at the solenoid (you check for open with a meter). When checking across the leads you shouldn't get any meter movement at all.

2. Remove the ice maker or the port that comes into the ice maker on the back of the refer (it is usually held in with 2 screws). Make sure it is not frozen up. If it is sometimes if you take regular insulation and pack it into the area where the port comes in that can stop the freezing problem.

Good Luck!
God Bless

SOURCE: Ice maker is making hollow ice cubes, some only half frozen

Most ice makers have an adjustment screw to control the cube size. Its usually hidden behind a plastic panel on the front of the ice maker. A quarter turn either way and some trial and error testing should get you pointed in the right direction to your ideal ice cube.

SOURCE: ice maker makes ice, but also drips water

cbscarter,
This may sound strange but you will find that the mold coating is peeling off of the aluminum mold. This causes the water to wick (climb) the loose coating and up over the top, leaking out making an ice clump on the ice maker and clumps ice in the container together. It would be easy enough for the average person to replace the ice make. Due to its age that would be smarter to replace than to repair the old one. It is a Whirlpool part #4317943 and comes with some instructions.

If this helped please rate me good, supertechks

Dce33a1bb ice maker makes ice but doesn't stay frozen


Poor draining of water in the ice bin will cause a high rate of ice melting, Remember this is not a freezer but an ice maker. If the machine is making ice OK but it is melting to fast then check to make sure the bin is draining all the melt off and not letting water stand in bin causing ice to melt fast.

I've had lots of problems with my Bosch refrigerator ice maker. The ice tray has a tab on the back corner that twists the tray when it cycle to empty the ice. That tab broke off and when I looked into replacing the ice tray the authorized Bosch dealer said the tray is only sold with the complete ice maker unit. Sells for about $160. I have a hard time spending $160 for another complete ice maker when I only need a $10 replacement ice tray. This ice maker is sub-par for an appliance name brand like Bosch.

Remove door and icemaker from bottom freezer model 59673914200 -- icemaker wont turn


The ice maker switch had come unattached due to excess ice buildup, and frozen to the ice pack. The ice in the ice maker had also frozen into a solid block due to not being able to rotate. After removing the drawer trays and protecting the frozen food, turning off the refridgerator, I used a hair drier to melt and remove the ice from the ice maker, gave it time to dry out, -- No gears wer stripped,- the ice maker now works normally.

Leak to under ice cube tray causing drawer to freeze shut.


May be your freezer evaporator drain hole is frozen. If this is the case, you can try to install a low heat drain hole heater into the drain hole and connect the wires with the defrost heater.

Melded mass of ice in bin


The only thing I can offer is to limit the out put of the machine closer to what your needs are.Or bag the ice and store in a freezer. The ice pushing down while melting is what is causing the BIG FREEZE. The bin for storage may be too big for your needs, at least at the time you write this. When the demand goes up (warmer weather) the ice would be used more and the pressure pushing down will alternate as well as people getting scoops out more often this will help prevent such a freeze up in warmer weather.
