My Ice Maker Won’t Make Ice. Why?

Standard

If your ice maker isn’t working properly, ice cubes are super small or it’s not making ice at all, there’s no need to immediately think you need a new one. Here are a few do-it-yourself methods you can do at home before calling a repairman or going to the store.

  1. Water Supply Line: make sure that the water supply line is receiving water to make the ice.
  2. Check the Fill Tube to see if it’s frozen. If your fill tube is frozen, this is usually caused by ice that has backed up. An indication would be smaller ice cubes than normal that keep getting smaller.
  3. Check the water line: The water line is found entering the back of the freezer. The water shut-off valve is located behind the refrigerator or under the sink. Turn this off, unscrew the copper line, turn on the valve and see if water pours out.
  4. Check the tap valve: the tap valve connects the ice maker’s water supply to the water pipe. A bad tap valve will cause problems between where the ice maker’s supply tube and the water pipe connect.
  5. Check the solenoid: It’s possible that the solenoid may be broken or not receiving power. Make sure the refrigerator is unplugged, and then flush out the sediment screen with water.
