Ice maker repair and troubleshooting
Whirlpool style ice maker repair and troubleshooting
Now that the warmer months of the year are near,everyone will want to have the ice maker running. But in these days they are not as dependable as they use to be. So i have compiled videos from around the web ensuring you the probability of keeping that ice maker production rolling at a very cost effective way. Most of my customers think they need to replace the whole ice maker when in fact in most cases you can purchase just a component or the control module to repair it.
First thing we need to do is learn just how a ice maker works and how to check some of the components in the ice maker. You won't even need to pull your refrigerator out to check the water inlet valve...it can be checked on the ice maker itself.
But you will need to use a volt meter to do some of the checks. They are inexspensive and with the correct instructions can be used to troubleshoot not only ice makers but most of your appliances.
