Trouble with Refrigerator Ice Maker

My Frigidaire ice maker makes ice, it just doesn't drop the ice into the bin. The wire arm, when manually turned off waits about a minute, then manually re-setting the arm, it will break the ice free, move it to a staged position (on top of wiper) or drop 1 load of ice, refill and stay that way until the arm is reset again. Is this an adjustment problem or does the whole works need replacing?

Trouble with Refrigerator Ice Maker

Automatic ice makers are nice when they work, but after a while they will malfunction. That's the main reason why I make ice cubes the old fashioned way, by filling up the ice cube trays and putting them in the freezer. It sounds like you will have to call in an appliance repairman. (11/26/2007)

Trouble with Refrigerator Ice Maker

If your ice maker bin and mechanism has a shelf/tray over it/them, be sure the tray is not pushed back too far. This was causing our ice not to fall into the bin (since there was no room to maneuver!). The kids stored the ice cream on the shelf and they always seemed to shove it back. By moving the ice cream, and pulling out the shelf a bit, that solved our problem.

Also, check your manual, if you have one. Look in troubleshooting to see if the bar needs to be cleaned or reset. If you don't have a manual, they can usually be found online (jot down the model and serial # before you start looking). There is also a great website for tips on doing repairs yourself. They even will answer your questions and help you order parts (if needed) at very reasonable rates. It is: http://www.repairclinic.com/.

Good luck! (11/29/2007)

Hi
My Whirlpool side be side ice maker randomly drops ice cubes on the floor. They just fall out and into the floor where they melt. This is not when were using it for water or ice. It is random times.
