    i had the no ice making issue , it was running water in the tray but not enough to make the ice. I call service for the machine it self and they told me to . 1. turn machine on . 2. press the select button for 10 sec. then 3. press the power button for 10 sec. and then turn off the machine and unplug it for 6 hour but I only did it for 1 hour. when I plugged it back in and started it. It is now making ice.

    On my igloo ice maker, it makes a funny sound, it doesn't pump water to tray, nor does it freeze. I'm gonna try your solution and see what happens.

    I know other people with these Igloo ice makers and they last about 6 months and then they stop working, my friend has had hers replaced two times already and the one she bought me will have to be replaced because it stopped making ice.

    I removed the rear panel and checked the full tube for flow . I had flow to the rubber 90 degree connector that went to the full cup, but no water past that. I squeezed the connector and instantly heard the water filling the cup . emptied the water and assemblied the unit ....working great

    With mine, the water that enters the tray from the top right is not going completely into the tray. Probably 1/3rd goes in the tray the rest spills. I need to know how to pull the top off to get to the feeding tupbe to maybe redirect it more to the tray.

    Or maybe there is an adjustment.??

    All I had to do in the end was to gently push on the tray that the tubes sit in. It seemed to have moved a bit and water was not filling it up. It took several gentle recycles of up and down to get it right but now i think the ice is slightly larger also. Don't force it, it will break.

    I took mine apart and foundd a piece of fuzz on the tube that puts the water in the tray. I cleaned that out and cleaned the tube in the back of the ice maker and it runs perfectly now. The water was not going into the tray and was just running down the side. I'll definitely be taking it apart more often and cleaning it with a toothbrush after seeing how gross it gets in there.

  • Mary Jane Davidson Oct 15, 2019

    Thank you so much, I took mine apart and it was dirty as well and now it works. Brilliant as I use it for ice dyeing and not for drinking.

    I have a Magic Chef icemaker which I believe is the same as the igloo, they look like they came from the same factory under different brands. I had the "ICE FULL" stuck on and the reset procedure fixed it, many thanks.

  • Bob Leask
    Bob Leask Apr 14, 2017

    Another issue I have which the reset did not fix is the power surge which happens about two minutes after turning it on. I live off grid and make ac power with an inverter and 2 kw generator. When the power surge happens it overloads the inverter or nearly stalls the generator when I'm using that. This does not seem normal, it should not use more than 300 - 400 watts.

    We just solved our ice making problem my 22 yr old took off the back panel and we cleaned that ribbed radiator and the filter in the front tank works great no more frowning sounds from the machine took 30 minutes also do the 10 second reset. Bam we got ice party on!

    Not a cooling problem, because I made sure to keep the cooler away from walls. We as consumers shouldn't have to figure out how to make a product work, if the product can't last longer than the six months after purchase, I say it's a faulty product, and all should be refunded or the makers need to come up with a fix for the problem.

    Mine was doing the same thing. I had to take it apart and bypass the led sensors. Now it seems to be working. Will update after it has made a few loads and am sure that fixed it.

    It has been several months and the ice maker is still working fine. The only problem is it won't shut off when it is full so I have to keep an eye on it when running. Also I just fixed a a Second one with the same problem and it is now working.

I had this problem. No amount of resetting as described helped. Mostly no ice at all but sometimes it worked and froze into a large block of ice. What I noticed, the fan would not come on or ran too much. I replaced it with a Thermaltake 12 VDC PC 120mm case fan with adjustable fan speed control. Currently it is making ice on the lowest speed setting. Happy ICE !!!

Icemaker is not working properly. It will only make ice after the reset button is pushed.


If the ice room is not getting/staying cold enough, the unit will not harvest the ice and proceed through the cycle... First step in troubleshooting is to determine if the compartment the icemaker sits in is cold enough, if it is, then you have to test the ice room temp. sensor to see if it is not sending the correct temp signal to the main board. These icemakers are modular and pretty much have to be replaced completely if the temperatures and sensor check OK. Samsung Refrigerator Temperature Sensor DA32 10104N

How can I find a wirning diagram for a ice maker that has guit making ice but the pump will run?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Your Ice machine does not have a wiring diagram. I have repaired many of these.

1.) Are you getting water? If not it is your pump.

2.) Reach in and feel the cold plate. Is it cold? If not you have a refrigerant leak.

3.) The problem may also be within your main control board.

Unless you have a current service contract these units are considered throw-always. It will cost you twice as much, if not more, to repair it than what you purchased it for, assuming you call a service company.

Go into the following website. Plug in the first 5 numbers on your model number and a list of model numbers will appear. Your model number is incorrect.

Select the model number then click on parts and you will get diagrams of your icemaker. Water Filters Lawn Garden Appliance Parts

Countertop Icemaker is only making a few thin cubes every hour , maybe buildup from bad water ! What can i pour in it to clean ?


I would switch off the power, disconnect water and keep it so for a few hours. While power off, clean whatever visible build up you find. And make sure you shut the water valve before disconnecting unless you want another project! After a few hours connect water and power and wait until ice made. Goodluck.

HI this is just a test the icemaker runs when you first turn it on, its not suppose to fill up the tray, it will fill it when the icemaker reaches the correct temperature, if its not cold enough in the freezer it wont kick on, if its been sitting for several hours and still wont fill or make ice, you need a new icemaker.

GE side by side refrig/freezer Mod. TFH24JWTA WH. Ice maker stopped working, stop/start wire is down (on). Get water through the door, but not sure if it goes to the ice maker. Ice maker is empty of water....


usually yes if no water to icemaker could be water valve solenoid. . first you can remove cover on icemaker and put the unit thru a test mode. find the plastic or medal cam in center of icemaker head when cover is removed., theis is a flateblade screw center get a small screwdriver and turn screw counterclockwise for about a 1/4 of a turn , icemaker will start cycling if icemaker ok then it will go througha cycle let it do its thing usually a few minutes for it to cycle, if fills you may have a bad icemaker, if no fill then valve may be bad. make sure you have good water pressure from your water supply that can cause icemaker problems.

Ice maker is not making ice. I can see no other problem and as far as I know the freezer was not left open as there is no frost buildup inside the unit. Everything is frozen, only problem is NO ICE!!


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker and see if it dumps the cubes after a few hours . If it does , and icemaker does not refill , then water valve is the problem . If the icemaker never dumps the water poured in , then icemaker is bad . ALSO , check to make sure the coils under refrig are clean of dust , lint , etc . Icemaker has to be 5 degrees to operate .

GE TBX21ji Refridgerator/Freezer Factory Icemaker quit making ice


Normally, when the temp of the icemaker gets to about 14 degrees F, the icemaker goes into the harvest mode, turning on the mold heater and attempting to eject the cubes. When the heater has warmed the mold sufficiently to release the cubes, the ejector can continue and push out the cubes, then the icemaker fills with fresh water to beging to make a batch of ice again. Manually starting the cycle as you have done only allows the cycle to start without the temp sensor seeing the 14 degrees. The mold heating generally takes a couple minutes. If your mold heater or the temp sensor are not working, you will have to replace the icemaker, as they are not available as a repair parts.

You might have a frozen line. Also and this seems more important to you its prob to cold, Trust me to cold of a refrig will cause hollow ice cubes first leading to a frozen line. Clean your coils, if you have another refrig empty out into that, unplug it leave doors open a couple days. If you can get to water line use a hair dryer from a distance defrost line, turn down freezer half knotch 1 full one at maximum. should fix issues, especially if filter already changed. If this all check prob a clogged line, not just frozen.
