Wait for about 4 hours and plug it again. let the compressor cool down. it could have tripped it's thermal overload.

then observe if the compressor would start. it would vibrate, make a little bit of noise and heats up.

if it is trying to start and can not start, then it could be broke already.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Ice aker ks, but does not dispense ice. fgidaire gallery, sde by side

Good Afternoon friend, thanks for your inquiry!

I understand that your icemaker is not dispensing ice in your Frigidaire refrigerator. I would recommend checking the dispenser chute, if there is a blockage of ice within the chute it would not dispense. When you press on the dispenser do you hear a noise? If you do that could be the auger trying to push the ice out, if you do not hear a noise it sounds like it be a potential problem with the dispenser or control panel. I would seek assistance from a technician to come out and properly diagnose your refrigerator. I hope this helps. -Matt

The ice dispenser no longer operates and in the dark of night the light turns on and the dispenser flapper starts flapping wildly on its own adn making a loud grunting noise. Do we need an exorcist

Check your fan next to the compressor if it's running ,also check your evaporator fan if it's running.
If both fans are running and you still have ice built-up then you may have a refrigerant leak

I purchased a new whirlpool conquest and have had on for two days. i have water coming out of the water dispenser but still no ice production. There is no water in the chute leading to the ice maker. ...

Maybe it won't call for water until it goes through the cycle. Try putting water in the ice mold and see if it starts working when it freezes and dumps the ice. Make sure the water line is open by swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then the water dispenser will send water to the ice maker and you'll know the valve and line works.
