    I replaced filter and water valve. I also defrosted freezer, yet NO ICE, water dispenser works well. Red light repeatedly flashes twice. Manual says nothing about the light or resetting the icemaker. Iced tea sure sounds good...wish I had some ice...wish I could impress my wife with a fix it miracle! Please help!

SOURCE: ice maker stopped working

The laser , is supposed to blink . This laser , tells the icemaker to stop making ice , when the bin is full . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . If it doesn't dump the cubes into the bin , the icemaker is bad . Or , if there is ice in the bin , which hasn't dumped , the icemaker is bad . If the icemaker dumps the ice ( from water pour ) , then look above the fill cup , and see if the black fill tube is frozen . If so , then replace the water valve and turn the freezer temp down slightly . It will take several days for this fill line inside freezer to thaw . If icemaker dumps , and black tube NOT frozen , replace the water valve . The valve , is where the wall water line connects to on the refrig .

SOURCE: kenmore ice maker filled with ice, but not dumping. light blinking next to ice maker switch

unfortunately, the heater is molded into the unit.
without testing every part of the icemaker there is now way to be certain which of the following has failed...

USING THIS DIAGRAM -

#11 is the heater assembly
#17 is the thermostat that controls the heater.

An entire unit replacement is not necessary.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My ice maker is not

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Whirlpool how to install


Hi,

With the freezer door open, depress the flap on the left. Does the flashing stop? If so, the Ice maker is the problem, not he optics. With the flap depressed is the only way you can test this. Solid light mean good, one flash and a pause means cycling, 2 flashes and a pause means faulted optics. Now for the ice maker, what position are the harvest fingers sitting at? At 2 O'clock the Ice maker is parked, At 12 it should fill with water so if the fingers are in any other position than 2 O'clock than the ice maker will not cycle at it can't. Its possible that the ice maker have a broken gear and will not function as designed. Get back to me if you need more information and a model number would be great. Good Luck
