Our less than 2 year old icemaker has stopped making ice. A while back it was making a lot of noise, but returned to normal later. It has been erratic, sometimes making very little ice and doing well at other times. It has now stopped making ice altogether. The water supply is fine with no obstructions.
While checking the bottom of the icemaker I got a nasty burn, so I concluded that the heater must have been stuck in the on position. I have removed the unit and found the tray about half full and the "ejector blades" firmly frozen in the ice and pointing straight down. This has to be wrong. The dial that controls the "ejector blades" must have a specific starting position, but I find that I can insert the knob into any location on the gear. What is the correct position and how do I check to determine if the motor is shot or if there is another issue?
ANSWER Hello Skip,
The ice maker should not make a lot of noise. This leads me to the assumption that the ice maker 1129316 is at fault.
