Haier Refrigerator ice maker not working
In this article, we will discuss some problems with the Haier Refrigerator ice maker not working and how to solve them.
Replace Water Inlet Valve
The water inlet valve is an electrically-controlled valve that opens up to supply the ice maker with water. The water inlet valve won’t allow the water to flow through unless it is receiving at least 20 psi of pressure or voltage.
Sometimes if water inlet valves have insufficient pressures or voltage, they won’t engage, which will prevent the ice maker from filling with the required amounts of water needed for ice production.
The replacement part would be a new Water Inlet Valve Assembly, and for testing purposes, one may use a multimeter to test for power at the outlet where the wiring harness connects to check for proper working order as opposed to simply taking it into factory retailer stores.
Blades stuck in ice cubes
The motor on the icemaker is what triggers a series of other functions inside the machine. For example, when the mercury in the thermostat goes above a certain temperature and falls below another, the motor begins to activate.
At that point, the motor will release ice cubes and send power to the water inlet valve, which fills up the icemaker tray with water at the end of its cycle. So if it’s no longer working properly, then there could be an issue with any element of this process.
First, check to ensure that your close-off (bail arm or turn-off switch) is in fact done so as not to allow water into the module if you’re using parts from another machine or are switching them around for some reason or other.
If that’s done, then use your ice maker module test points, which will help an electrician determine whether there have been any issues that haven’t been identified due to electrical problems.
Door switch fails
The door switch prevents the dispenser from being used when the refrigerator door is open. If the door switch is defective, the dispenser will not turn on.
To determine if it’s not working properly, you should use a multimeter to test it. If the door switch fails to work due to continuity when activated, replace it immediately before any real damage is done.
Test the pressure to determine
The home may suffer from a lack of water pressure. The ice and water dispenser requires a good deal of water; if the house is not getting enough water, that is often the reason for this problem.
Start by checking that the inlet valve has 20 psi or more, to make sure it isn’t damaged. You can test this by using a gauge or testing tube as well. If either one shows lower than 20 psi, you will need to replace the valve and/or contact a plumber to solve this issue.
Defective Ice Maker Assembly
The ice maker assembly may be broken. To fix the problem, you will need a new assembly of an identical type. Remember that many ice maker parts are not available separately, so you might have to purchase a whole new unit.
First, remove all removable parts from the freezer and check them for damage, including valves and hoses. If all of these parts are undamaged and at least half of your freezer coils are working correctly, replace the ice maker unit.
Set the freezer temperature
The ice maker is designed not to work efficiently if the temperature in the freezer is above -15 degrees. To ensure the proper operation of the ice maker, settings must be checked.
If the refrigerator temperature is too high, clean and inspects the condenser coils for debris. Also, check if frost has accumulated on the evaporator coils. If there is evidence of excessive frost, part of the defrost system has likely failed.
