Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it's frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don't refill with water.
ICE MAKER NOT GETTING WATER
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

I have a Samsung side by side model RS267LASH refrigerator. The fan on the refrigerator side was making a weird noise for a few days and suddenly it stopped cooling. The freezer side stays cold. I removed the cover on the inside and discoverd the coils were a solid block of ice. I am in the process of defrosting. What can I do to keep this from happening again, and is it covered under waranty? It is just over three years old.

My GE side by side fridge model GSH22JFTA BB stopped making ice a few months ago. Water is fine. Haven't had a chance to get it fixed, but now both freezer and fridge side do not get cold even on highest setting. This started about a week ago. Doesn't seem like the fan is blowing any air around either. There is some frost on the back of the freezer wall, but it is not cold enough to freeze any food.

My GE Model GSL25XGWA SS is 3 years old. For the last month or two it makes an unusual whirring (variable pitch) noise when it is running. It seems to be coming from the freezer side, perhaps the ice maker. (The ice maker sometimes overfills and has to be emptied out.) Any suggestions for fixing the whirring noise problems?

Kitchenaide Superba side by side - 4 years old. I've been having this issue for over 2 years now.
Ice maker makes ice, but there is ice build up around the base of the hopper (bin that holds the ice) and water trickles out the dispenser in the door. I have removed, cleaned, removed all built up ice, pre-cooled and replaced the hopper numerous times. Initially seems better, but problem recurs.

Fussy Frige We have a 10 year old Jenn Air JCD 2295KES, side by side, that has been acting up for the last few months.
First we noted ice was clumping, and this appeared to due to a drip from the front portion of the ice maker as you can see the water collect and then drop onto the ice in the tray. When this water would freeze it would make clumps of ice. No biggie.
Then we noticed that the unit would make a soft "electrical" sound when it tried to turn on and cool. Sometimes the sound w
Slow icemaker I have a Frigidaire Professional Series FRS26ZSH side-by-side. It's about 10 years old. The icemaker makes ice very slowly, but I have excellent water pressure through the water dispenser. I recently changed the water filter. It appears as though the ice cube tray is filling up fine with water. The icemaker was replaced about 1 year ago, and it has never worked properly. Our previous icemaker made ice 10 times as fast before it stopped. We're lucky if we get 2 batches of ice pe

My GE GSH25JFTC side by side freezer/refrigerator has ice accumlating in the area around the ice maker both above and below the ice maker and in the door shelves in vicinity of the ice maker. It's three years old and this started about one month ago. The door seal seems to be good and the ice maker is properly making and dispensing ice although there appears to be refrozen ice around the auger. I defrosted the freezer and the accumulation reappeared within two weeks.

My ice maker will make ice but when I try to use the automatic ice button to get ice in a glass the auger won't go around and release the ice. The motor sounds good. I have taken all the ice out 6 times dried everything and put back in and it still won't work. The refrigerator is a side by side Whirlpool gold and is only 2.5 years old.

My tecknical proceadures have included removing the filter and putting the same one back in, and kicking the freezer door a couple of times.

I have a Kenmore side by side model # 106.53609202 and its about 8 years old. About a month ago it stopped making ice. I've already replaced the water valve behind the fridge and waited 24 hours and still no ice. The water dispensor in the freezer door works fine. I haven't heard the ice maker 'call' for water either. The drain hole in back of the freezer was blocked with ice but I cleared it with hot water. The short water tube that feeds the ice tray is not plugged up. I think that's about it.
OK, remove the cover on the face of the ice maker and let me know if the model look like this picture: If it looks like this mod ...

Kenmore refrigerator 106.57716701. The ice maker on the door is making ice but when you push to dispense ice, the trap door opens, you hear a motor for a second or two but the motor inside does not dispense ice. Nothing is jammed in the ice bin. The refrig. is about 3 years old and my Homeshield appliance warranty does not cover icemakers. Sears says they will sell me a one year warrantty for $250. and will fix the problem.

Hi, I have an Amana SBDE522V side by side with ice maker. Since I replaced a shorted heater defrost element some months ago the ice maker stopped making ice and the fridge temp alarm regularly goes off. I've finally got sick of it and checked the book and it says the ice maker wont go if the freezer is not cold enough. So I've checked that and the freezer is only running about -5, my 20 year old Kelvinator runs better than -25 so I guess thats a good starting point. Any ideas what to check next?

I have an Amana side by side frig and the freezer is not keeping ice cream cold. The refrigerator side seems fine. The freezer side is set to 7 but it no longer clicks like it used to when you turn the dial to lower numbers. It was working fine and the freezer kept things very cold and then all of a sudden things started to melt. However, some things in the freezer still freeze, while other things like ice cream do not. Any possible solutions? The frig is about 8-9 years old. Thanks, Davi

Several year old refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/water in the door. The problem is on the fridge side. Just recently we started seeing water or ice on the fridge side.

GE TPX24PPBE icemaker auger doesn?t work: I have an 11-year old GE side-by-side refrigerator (TPX24PPBEWW). The icemaker auger won't spin to dispense ice.
