All you need to do is turn water off until someone can replace the dual water control valve found on floor and back side of your refrigerator. You are going to need your model number so you can find the correct parts. Most Whirlpool Refrigerator model numbers are found inside the fresh food compartment and around the door. Whirlpool refrigerators made in the U. S. will find the parts manuals by going here=> User Manuals
A pace to find parts is by entering your model number=> HERE am not sure why many places have the dual water control valve with the photo of your ice maker. If you have questions I will be here so please ask. Thank You Sea Breeze

LG LRSC 26920tt won't make ice


In order to determine the problem you must check a few things:

1) Is there water in the ice tray? If not. verify the saddle valve is turned on, check the connection on the water valve, verify that there are no kinks in the inlet hose, and check he water filter to see if it is clogged.

2) Is the temperature correct? Make sure the fans are working properly and air is flowing. Verify the the frig and freezer are at the correct temperature and make sure the ice maker compartment door is sealing shut.

If these things check out ok, run an ice maker test. Make sure the ejector arm and feeler arm are in their original positions before beginning. If they are not:

1. Turn off icemaker and wait 5sec.
2. Turn on icemaker.
3. Wait until feeler arm and ejector are back to original positions.

To begin the icemaker test: Press and hold the test button on the icemaker for 5 seconds. If the LED, feeler arm and or ejector does not return to to their original positions the problem is with the ice maker.
The ice maker part number for your model is 5989JA0002G

Need to know how to turn on ice maker in whirlpool gz25fsrxyy2


Should be a wire feeler arm that runs front to back on that icemaker. If it is stuck in the up position---the icemaker is OFF. It should be hanging downward to be in the ON position. If up---just gentley pull it down until it is moving freely. As the ice bin fill with cubes that arm should move up and down with the icemaker. Once the cube level is high enough for the feeler arm to be held in the up position it will stop making ice until you use enough cubes for the arm to fall again.

Freezer is trying to make ice cubes but unable. I can hear it tripping. Should arm be in up or down position?


Hello the arm should be in the down position in order for the ice maker to try and start makeing ice cubes. when you stated you can hear it tripping what can you hear tripping can you see the icemaker arms spining. Sometimes i find it is best to remove the icemaker from the unit 2 1/4' screws located on top and one located on the bottom and then take the hole icemaker and run it under hot water for a couple minutes this causes any parts on the icemaker that are froozen up to become defrosted and sometimes it will go back into proper functioning order as well. If you have any further questions message me back Thanks
Rick
p.s if arm was in up position this would shut the icemaker off and it would not attempt to make ice any further

It sounds like you have a bad icemaker. Usually when the arm is clicking its the gears that are stripped out. Feel in the icemaker if theres cubes frozen in there then you know the icemaker is definitely bad. With the arm in the up position it will not make cubes at all that is the off position for the icemaker. Hope this helps _MJ_

Icemaker makes tons of ice and it spills all over the floor


The icemaker should have a thin metal arm that turns it off when the arm is raised, and on when the arm is lowered. This is so when the tub of ice gets full, the cubes push the arm up, and the icemaker is turned off to keep from making excess ice.

When I had the overflowing ice, I checked my icemaker and found that the arm had fallen off (and thus the icemaker won't know when to stop making ice). I found the arm and stuck it back on, and all was well. It may be a bit tricky, and it might take some ingenuity to keep the arm from falling back off.

I hope this helps!

Ice maker does not stop working and overfills, then ice dispenser does not work and pushes door open.


Continuous ice production, too much ice in the bucket, ice cubes overflowing the bucket, ice cubes falling behind the bucket or ice lifting the chiller shelf can now be resolved by installing a redesigned feeler arm. The new arm is designed with a slight curve to cycle the icemaker “OFF“ before the cubes overflow the ice bucket. Order part number WR49X10103.

Icemaker overflows when filling


first, get your manual here:http://www.kitchenaid.com/custserv/service.jsp

The manual describes a wire arm which should gauge the amount of ice your unit produces. That arm is improperly set up or missing. The switch it controls may be defective. Have a look.
