ok thank you so it fills with water the water freezes but it does not dump the cubes is that correct?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


that is correct


 

And it is good and cold in the freezer ?

The only way the icemaker dumps is it has to get below a temperature of 15 degrees before the icemaker cycles .

do you have very little in the freezer in the way of food ?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


my freezer temp is -17 degrees and it is 3/4 full

ok so it has to be an issue with the thermostat in the icemaker then .CLICK HERE for the part info .

To get to the thermostat you will need to unmount the icemaker for the freezer wall , remove the front plastic cover and the the three screws that hold the metal cover in place and the thermostat is mounted to the icemaker mold .
