Question and Answers

Q:

The ice maker on my 2003 Roper side by side refrigerator is not working -- water does not seem to be not getting through line for ice but is for drinks?

A:

Your details seem to imply that the ice maker module is cycling but not filling with water. If you are not certain that it is cycling, try manually filling the ice mold with water using a turkey baster or squirt bottle. If the ice maker module cycles properly and dumps the ice then you could have a problem with the water line, the water valve, the wiring circuit between the valve and the ice maker module or you could have a failed contact in the ice maker module that is failing to energize the ice maker water valve.

If the ice maker module does not cycle and dump the ice, make sure that the wire arm is completely down. If the arm is only slightly up, the ice maker will not cycle. Make sure that your freezer temperature is okay. The ice maker will also not cycle if the freezer temperature is above 25 degrees. If the ice maker won't cycle even though the freezer is at 0 degrees and the arm is down then the ice maker module (part 4317943) will likely need to be replaced. You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the icemaker did dump the ice after the manual fill but did not refill the ice mold, I recommend that you check the water fill tube that protrudes into the freezer for an ice plug. You will likely have to remove the ice maker to check this area. Unplug the refrigerator and remove the two screws that secure the ice maker to the side wall in the freezer. Lower the ice maker module and check the fill tube. You can blow air through the tube from the water valve to the ice maker to make sure that it is clear if necessary. If the tube is clear, you will need to perform some technical diagnosis to determine the cause of your problem. With the refrigerator still unplugged you can pull the cover off of the ice maker module and check the resistance through the fill valve circuit as shown in the image below. This will help you determine whether you have a wiring failure or a failed water valve assembly. If the circuit is good then it is likely that the contact is not being closed during the harvest cycle to energize the water valve. The ice maker module would need to be replaced in that situation.

These tips should help you determine the cause of your ice maker failure so that you can repair it yourself. If you need more help, submit additional details and we will assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
