Electrolux EW23BC71IS4 Ice maker not making ice

12 posts in this topic

I have an Electrolux EW23BC71IS4 that seems to have stopped making ice. Water does come out of the water dispenser. I have reset controls to default and have shut off icemaker no change. I was making a clunking noise.

If your making a clunking noise, you should probably see a doctor, or a mechanic..

Put a test cord on the ice maker coil of the water inlet valve assembly. if you get water into the icemaker, then replace the icemaker; no water, then either bad valve or frozen fill tube.

Nope - not so simple on this overengineered albatross - got one of them fancy swinging bucket icemakers that makes those cute little round icecubes (when it works)

:sick:I'm afraid the poster won't like the catch when it leads to requiring a $400-$500 upgrade kit be installed to fix it

Called Electrolux today. They said that they would set up a work request for an upgrade kit and a shelf all for free. I purchased the fridge in August 2010. Wow something is finally going good for me.

Good to see them cover that - those kits are at about the 6th generation now.

Did anyone know they have a class action lawsuit forming against Electrolux on these refrigerators with these crazy icemakers?

Just ran across it in related videos to the one above.
