by Manage My Life Last activity date:
December 27th, 2011

i have a galaxy refrigerator, model number 10610655622500, serial number 550535465. When i turn my ice maker on, the extractor teeth continue to rotate endlessly, they never stop long enough to let the ice maker fill with water

I think you need to replace the icemaker Tim. You are not confusing, I just think the final solution for the problem is to replace the icemaker.

The icemaker that is in there is W1012250. The refer model is 106.55122700. I don't think I ever told you guys. I just found out myself. Sorry. Parts Direct told me the Part # for the icemaker is W10190965 for $93 + change. Now I am really confused.

By the way, the fingers stopped rotating. Should I still replace? They rotated for quite a while, and I left the house. When I returned, they were not moving. I had activated the water a little by jumping terminals. If that is all confusing, don't feel bad. I confuse myself all the time.

Thanks for all you help. Pls let me know.

Tim, if you removed the jumper after 10-15 seconds and the fingers didn't stop turning after 1 revolution, you need to replace the icemaker. The module of the icemaker has failed and it is not worth repairing. The part number and price of the icemaker are:

46 106 4317943 1 125.89 10655622500 COMPLETE ICEMAKER ASSEMBLY

sorry I replied twice about the same thing. I didn't realize the two pages and thought my first one didn't take.

hey guys

I removed the icemaker, thawed it out, put back in refer. Jumped T and H and the fingers moved. However they don't stop. Is that right?

Jimmy,

I got the icemaker out. Thawed it out. Plugged it back in. Jumped T and H again and the fingers are working. However, they don't stop. Did I do something wrong or do I need to do something to stop them.

Tim, Scott is on vacation and I will help you. We don't have a manual for removing the icemaker. Disconnect the power to the refrigerator and remove the ice bin. Loosen the 2 screws above the ice mold and lift the icemaker off the screws. Pull the icemaker forward to clear the fill tube and disconnect the icemaker wiring from the cabinet.

If your refrigerator is the same model and if the icemaker did not move when the T & H terminals were jumped, yes, the icemaker will need to be replaced. If you would like more assistance, I will be glad to assist you further.

Sorry to bother you. I jumped J and H for about 15 seconds and removed jumper. Nothing happened. The disc right above the terminals didn't move. It didn't even sound like anything kicked in. Time for a new one? :-)

Tim, To manually advance this icemaker, use a well insulated jumper (see picture) and place it in the T & H terminals for approx. 15 seconds and then remove it. This will cycle the icemaker if it's working properly. I hope this helps you.

I have terminals like your last post and water is running properly. How can I manually eject cubes to make sure unit is still working properly instead of waiting 24 hours?

I know it can be frustrating when the icemaker stops working. If the icemaker just continues to cycle, the icemaker # 4317943 will need to be replaced. It's possible the water valve may also be defective, if the icemaker never fills. A good check will be to, pull the front cover off of the icemaker and you will see some test terminals (see picture). Now place a well insulated jumper between the L - V terminals and water should flow to the icemaker. Be careful this is a hot (live) check. If no water flows now but you can hear a humming sound, the water valve # 4389177 will also need to be replaced. These parts are available at

SearsPartsDirect

. I hope this will help you.

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:
