    Ok, well it just filled up with water on its own, and we will wait to see if it produces ice this time. Thanks

Check first if there is water coming in the ice maker.

check the water solenoid at the back of the fridge. check the water line if there is water coming to the solenoid.
if you have filters installed, check the water coming out of the filter. it could be clogged.

    as long as the refrigerator is cooling very well, it will make ice. check the freezer section, check the temperature. if it won't go down below 15 F. then the problem could be in the freezer section temperature and not the ice maker.

    tnx for the rating,

you will need to access the heater in the rear area of the freezer compartment and disconnect the heater element and take a continuity test of the element,if this checks good,then in the same area is your defrost timer,unplug the heater from it and hook up a voltmeter and energize the defrost timer manually and see if you have a voltage there

Overflowing drip pan under the fridge


for reallybsq
problem could be door seals not sealing completely and hence excessive ice formed on evaporator and excess water when it melts. however, i have found this problem many times with large larder fridges and really found no cure.

for guest.
towards the bottom of the back wall, there is a gulley with a drain hole in the middle. this drain is blocked. clear it with something flexible and make sure water flows away freely

Whirlpool Gs5shaxnb02 Ice maker


the most comon problem is the ice machine in the freezer actuates at low teperatures. actuation is when the unit goes into harvest the ice. if your freezer is not aciving low enough temperature the ice machine stops working ' check to ensure the condensor under the fridge is not pluged with dust .Also make shure there is adiquit air flow around the ice machine. hope this helped someone .

Ice maker stopped working


are the "fingers" of the icemaker pointed toward you and slightly up? if not the icemaker is internally broken . is the red light to the right blinking twice and then a one second pause? if not the emmitter is broken. is the black hose coming from the ceiling blocked with ice ? if so the water vave is broken allowing water to seep in hose and freeze. hope this helps.

Whirlpool ice maker not turning the ice out


most likely the icemaker module has a broken gear. very easy repair. purchase whirlpool part# 8201515 and replace the motor module on the front of the ice maker.

Whirlpool side by side icemaker won't stop... lol


no you shouldnt have to replace the ice maker, the stop arm probably is not in place. pull the ice maker out and check where the arm goes into the motor head. I think that will solve it for you. Good Luck.
