This video shows you how to diagnose the problems with the ice maker not making ice. If the ice maker in your freezer has stopped making ice, I have a quick solution for you to get it working again. Keep in mind this may not work for everyone but it’s worth trying before calling a repairman. At least this is what worked for me in this situation. My ice maker was working just fine and then suddenly one day it wouldn’t make any ice. One of the first things I looked for was something blocking the door sensor. Your freezer might be different but on mine the indicator light blinks when the sensor is blocked. When the door is closed and the path is clear of objects, the light should stay on constantly. Move stuff out of the way if there’s something blocking the sensor.
Next, check the water inlet to the icemaker. Mine is easy to see because it’s out in front. Yours might be in the back. This tube fills the icemaker with water for the ice. This was the cause of my problem. The water got frozen from the tube to the icemaker. It was basically one big icicle. Don’t break this icicle. Instead, get a hair dryer and set it on high heat. Using the hair dryer, use the hot air to melt the ice in the water supply tube. This will take at least several minutes to melt the ice. When you think it’s melted, check to see if there is any ice still in the tube. Once it’s unfrozen, your icemaker will be able to get water to start making ice again. Remember that this may not work for all ice maker issues and you may have a bigger problem but do this simple check first to see if you can make ice again.
