Ice sticking I have a Whirlpool frig with a top freezer and an ice maker. Can you explain to me why the ice is sticking together in the ice container. Do I need to change the gasket or do I adjust the thermostat

Should I just junk this frig? We turned frig off manual defrosted and cleaned out plugged up line from freezer to frig. Frig and freezer worked fine for one month and then the same problem has happened...


Hi this probably has a bad defrost thermostat, its only a $10-15 part its located in the freezer behind the rear panel. Would need to be totally defrosted beore you changed it and usually requires a bit of wiring but nothing complicated just need to be handy with wire strippers.

Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker stopped making ice


With ice makers it is almost always one of two things. The ice maker itself, or the water valve (valve is located on the backside of the frig, bottom right hand side almost 100% of the time). Figuring out which one is easy, and I will help explain.

First thing is the frig has to be cold enough for the ice maker to even start working. I'm assuming we have the cold part taken care of. Next, the machine will start a cycle and ask for water. Here is where the valve comes in. The ice maker energizes the valve and it opens allowing water to rush up the back of the frig and into the ice maker. After the ice freezes the ice maker goes into harvest and dumps the ice.

In conclusion, you either have an ice maker that stalled at some point during that cycle (in which case you need a new ice maker). Or the water valve is not opening, thus no water enters the ice maker and you get zero ice.

If you have ice in the ice maker and it is not dumping, you need a new ice maker. If it is empty, you have to either wait for it to ask for water or manually advance the ice maker into cycle so you do not have to wait.

At this point you will hear the water valve energize or not. If it never energizes, the ice maker is not working right, if it energizes and you get squat, the valve needs to be replaced.

If you have experience with a multimeter you could detach the harness going to the ice maker and simply hook up your leads. When the ice maker asks for water, you should get 110v reading on the meter. If you do, the valve is bad and needs to be replaced.

If I can be of any further assistance please let me know. good luck!

Oh, and the valve probably sells for between $50 and $100 depending on where you buy it. The ice maker should run between $100 and $180.

P.S. There is a remote chance the filter needs to be replaced. An old filter can cause water pressure issues and you may not get enough water into the ice maker.

Ice maker makes ice but comes out wet


Your ice maker may have an adjustment if behind the front cover has a set screw to plus or minus the amount of water. If it is controlled with a control board it will need to be replaced. Now if for some reason the water control valve on the rear of your refrigerator is sticking open or leaking too much water that may be the problem. The replacement Ice Maker part number 732489 and appears as a kit with the water valve included, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker flooded top freezer compartment


It may be just the water control valve on back of refrigerator. Put tap water in ice maker and lower lever for on. After ice is made, does it drop to tray? At this time when empty is the time the control valve is asked for water. The problem could be in valve on back or the inside ice maker itself. If you can try a few test with me I will help you locate the problem. Let me know what you find as I go through this with you. Sea Breeze

WATER AND ICE INSIDE MY FRIG


Most likely whats happening is you have a frozen drain for the defrost cycle. here are step by step instrutions for repair
  • Unplug refrigerator
  • unload food from freezer
  • remove icemaker if present (there are 3 screws remove the one on the bottom and loosen the 2 on top of icemaker then lift it off the 2 screws unplug from wiring harness)
  • remove 2 screws holding rear cover in place
  • move cover to the side or remove from unit altogether
  • defrost any and all ice from bottom of freezer and aluminum drain pan that is now exposed
  • flush drain hole that you will see once ice is cleared with warm water. (sometimes I use a large syringe or turkey baster to forcefully flush hot water thru the drain tube)
  • reassemble in reverse order

These are general instrutions for most top freezer refrigs. but if you need more specific directions dont hesitate to ask Thanks Peyton
