Ice Maker Not Working

Our Frigidaire icemaker quit working and we can't afford another one. Any suggestions? We had installed a new filter about 10 days earlier.

Ice Maker Not Working

I turned my water off to replace a faucet and fix a water line and my ice maker in my Whirlpool side by side quit working too. I got the blow dryer out, took about five min. and my ice maker is working again! Thanks for the help! (03/02/2007)

Ice Maker Not Working

I have a Whirlpool Gold side-by-side and its ice maker stopped working. I tried lowering the temperature and I checked the little black spigot thing for ice, but neither helped. I couldn't figure it out until I removed the ice maker. When I did, I found that it was a broken tab that held on the ejector gear (see for diagrams).


To fix it I tried super glue, but that didn't work. Turns out super glue loses all strength in the freezer. Next I tried some glue I had left over from putting sprinkler pipes together. That held, but just barely, so finally I used a little ball of glue putty like a cap on the end of the tabs. That worked and I now have ice again.

I recommend taking out the ice maker to really see what the problem is. To remove mine I unplugged the frig, carefully removed the little door over the ice maker, unscrewed the 4 hex screws on the bottom of the ice maker, pushed in the little tab on the bottom left of the maker, slid the maker out, and unplugged it.

Yea! I went here and fixed mine. But I would like to save someone else the trouble I went through. I removed all of the components only to find out if I gently turned the fitting that the water line connects to in the back counter clock-wise it pulls out. And that where the frozen clog was! I am sure all models are not the same so do not try to force your fitting. I have a 2002-2004 Fridgidare side by side with water and ice in the door. The water supply line in the back is green and goes towards the top on the back side. Good Luck. (12/17/2008)
