How do you fix an ice maker on a sub zero refrigerator?
Our sub zero built in ice maker stopped making ice. I'd like to fix it myself and am looking for things to check to see if I can get it to produce ice again.
How old is the refrigerator? If it's still in warranty don't touch it as you will void the warranty.
If you're out of warranty coverage the first thing I would examine is the water connection. Is it secured fully? No leaking?
If the ice maker is defective or broken, it is unlikely that it can be repaired. The normal course is to replace it. This is definitely a DIY project.
Things to check:
1. Water connection, water valve, water source. Has someone turned the water source off? Is the water supply line kinked or crushed?
2. Is the ice maker turned on? Has someone inadvertently turned the ice maker off? Has the lift arm that turns the ice maker on and off been misaligned?
3. Is the wiring harness to the ice maker plugged in all the way? Has it come loose?
4. Check the water tray, is it aligned with the water source? Is there ice collecting in the bottom of the tray? Maybe the water is not hitting the tray, check to see that the water inlet supply is aligned properly.
If all of these things are working properly, then replace the ice maker. It is generally held on with two screws, loosen the screws and lift the ice maker off of them, be sure to carefully remove the wiring harness plug. Installation of the new Ice maker is just the reverse.

We have had this xbox360 a couple of years, and when we had the warranty, because it took a while to fix them, they sent out a different refurbished system. Well, this rather messes up a warranty, and now we have a box that does not work. Does anybody know if there is a length of time...
