I made components fail, watched the symptoms, and broke it down for you. This video is intended to help you troubleshoot.

Some Tech info. Not sure how useful it will be, but I recorded it anyway.
@ a room temp of 83F
Solenoid- 383ohms
Tray motor- 2.2kiloohms
Water sensor- 858kiloohms (Not sure about this. the sensor is a screw and a wire with a 1/2″ air gap between them. The water completes the circuit.)
I’ll keep poking around with the multi-meter. When I know more, I’ll add more.

  1. Heather Keegan says:

    My igloo ice maker is making tiny little ice cubes that are barely ice cubes… the water isn’t filling up all the way where the ice is made even though the water is full… do you what the issue could be? The vent seems to be working.

    didn't cover my problem. everything working fine but it makes a grinding sound once the ice drops and it starts filling up again. not sure whats making that horrible grinding sound.

  3. JP Aube says:

    Great video thank you so much – I have 3/4 of my prongs not forming ice around them just a very very thin layer that melts before it even gets into the tray. Any idea what that could be?

    Thank you for making this video, it helped me identify what was wrong with mine (the pedal that rotates with the tray is pressing the rear switch, but I think the button is broken, I will have to find a way to replace it). Honestly I will never take for granted any "small" channels like yours, they have helped me many times when I needed to diagnose an issue with a car, machine, etc. Thank you once again so much for the time you took in making this video. Folks don't appreciate enough.
