Title: ice maker not working
Post by: LaneBrubaker on November 09, 2008, 12:26:12 PM
Ice maker quit making ice a week ago. A piece of ice was stuck in the maker so I removed it, but it didn't start working again. Water dispenser works just fine and I have replaced the filter as well. I have taken the water valve apart and cleaned it but the ice maker still doesn't work.

Model 106.56502400

Remove the icemaker and look at the white ejector blades. Usually when the ice jams like yours did, it can make one of the fingers on the ejector bend out of shape and jam against the side.

I checked that, the white ejector blades are ok and when the bar is up you can turn them all the way around. When the bar is down nothing happens, the ejectors don't move and water doesn't fill the ice maker

put some water in the ice maker and see if it kicks out a batch.

OOps...if you can turn those ejector blades, you need a new icemaker.

So even with the bar up I shouldn't be able to turn the ejector blades? I guess the piece of ice that got stuck burnt the ice maker up.
