Look at the thermostat and at the programmer/control board - they are the ones that control the power to the compressor. Check first that the power is transmitted to the compressor, then if it's received. If it's received you can do one more check of the compressor - connect it directly to the mains, if it's good it should start.
I would look for pressure in the system. It may have shut down on low or high pressure. Look to see if you have a manual reset for the low or high head pressure switch. If it is air cooled, check the coil, condenser coil if it did trip off on high head and clean the back side off. You have power, a safety switch has shut it down the last time it was used and it would be a manual reset.If you have the original manual, it might come in handy to look through. To check for pressure, find the schrader valve for charging and since ice machines are of critical charge, just remove the screw on cap and depress it just enough to see. If nothing comes out at all, push it in completly, and you will know you have leaked all of the freon out. Check these things out and let me know the out come. I will be here if you need me.
Sincerely, and have a great 4th,
A/C, Heating, & Refrigeration Contractor PS, Please be kind when rating me, that would be kind of you.

I have a U-Line model bi-98 ice maker which stopped making ice. I found it with a ice bin full of water and not running one day. I cleaned ti up and shut it down because I didn't need it for a couple of months. I just tried to start it up again to no avail. After turning the water on and pushing the power switch to the on position the compressor and condenser fan do not come on. The ice maker fills with water and the cube ejector mechinism starts turning and the mold heater comes on. It does

Side by Side Frigidaire Galleria Freezer is making buzzing sound, on and off every few minutes. Freezer is not working, water coming out of ice maker. I removed toe kick plate and removed alot of *** hair, cleaned coils completely and fan is turning fine, not sure if fan was turning or not prior to cleaning. Still buzzing after cleaning. Is the compressor history or what, it's only a couple of years old.
Clean the heck out of the coils underneath and give the manufacture a call, you should be covered by a 5 yr warr on your compressor(reason i say clean it is if they come see it clogged they'll blame you and deny ...

I have a Kenmore side by side, not sure the model, but it's probably 10 years old or so. It has an ice maker with water, cube and crushed ice dispenser. The ice maker works fine, but it will not dispense ice, crushed or cube. Water dispenser works fine too. When I depress the button on the doors in the cube position I can hear a clicking sound but the motor does not seem to turn. In the crushed position there is no sound at all.
Most of the time the bin has been removed and not put back in properly. When this happens ice blocks the drive motor. Remove the bin and turn the auger by hand make sure it will turn and is not jammed. Now with the bin out push the light button in th ...

Freezer fan does not come on . Thought that replacing the DC motor would "fix" the problem. It did not. The compressor works as the freezer gets cold, but the fan never works so the refrigerator side does not get cool. Have had a problem previously with ice maker freezing over. (Have had to shut off the icemaker and "blowdry" the frozen water from the icemaker). It may have been water or ice that got into the fan to have caused the problem? But as I stated before, I did replace the fan motor and

We have a KitchenAid [KSRG25FKSS03]. We turned the ice maker off for a period of time and recently turned the switch back to the on position, but now no water is flowing from the black rubber outlet into the ice machine. Thus - no water inflow into ice machine, no ice being made. Any advice? THx.
Sounds to me that the water inlet line is frozen. If you feel of the black rubber outlet, it will probably have ice in it causing it not to pour water in thus no ice production, Remove your door that is in front of the ice maker and use a blow drye ...

5 1/2 yr old side by side (GSH25JFRBB). Water dispenser began not working properly 2 days ago. Would not consistently release water. Ice dispenser appeared fine.

Turning off the ice maker made no difference. Turning off the freezer stopps the clicki
