the fridge was installed on the 20th of february at 2 pm still no water in the mold and no ice
I'm sorry you are having this problem. A good rule of thumb is to give it 24 hours. Make sure the bail arm is all the way down and the water is turned on. Sometimes a jumpstart will help the icemaker get started. Use a turkey baster and manually put approx. 4.5 ounces of water in the icemaker mold, to see if it will freeze the water, harvest the ice and refill. If it doesn't cycle properly, I recommend having a technician come out to check it, under warranty. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . Thank you for using Manage My Life.
hey i tried filling ti with ah little water near the first to cubes after the ice maker head since i know the thermostat and other sensors are there ...... it triggered the ice maker to cycle and fill with more water but the ice maker did not eject the ice the tines are still in home position what does this mean bad thermostat or bad thermal cut off or just buy a new ice maker ???
scratch the cycle part filling it did not help sigh .......... it only filled the mold but apparently did nothing i know this cuz the last cube in the mold was not filled ....... so false alarm im guessing the whole thing needs to change or the thermal cutoff really went bad the ice maker info is as follows im part number 241642509 model num IMBD03-003
I'm sorry you are having this problem. If the freezer temperature is below 10 degrees and adding water to the mold did not help, it would indicate the icemaker thermostat is not closing. However, since this unit was just installed and is still under warranty, I recommend having a technician come out to check this under warranty. It would not be a good idea to do anything with this, while it's still under warranty.
A good test will be to manually advance this icemaker into a cycle. To cycle this icemaker, pull the front cover off and you will see some gears. Turn the small gear ccw until the icemaker starts running (see attached picture). Watch it cycle now and toward the end of the cycle, watch to see, if it fills with water. If it cycles and fills but does not harvest the ice and the temperature is ok (between 0 – 5 degrees), the icemaker will need to be replaced. If it cycles but does not fill, listen for a humming sound. If you do hear this sound, it indicates the inlet water valve is getting energized but is not allowing water through. In his case, check to make sure the water supply to the refrigerator is ok. If it is, then the water valve # 241803701 will need to be replaced. I hope this will help you.
