Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerator Model # ED2FHEXNQOO

Ice Maker makes no ice even though I have water from the door dipenser. I took off the front cover and the dial does not move at all. I took the module apart and ran 120V. to the motor and it runs. There seems to be no power to the module. Incidentally the ice maker quite after the water was shut off in the neighborhood for a day. Probably not related huh? Thank you.

    Thank you inadvance for this possible solution. I will try it this weekend. The reason i'm responding before I try this is that maybe you can tell me why I cannot locate the correct model for my refrigerator on the internet. It is really a whirlpool model number EDZFHEXNQOO Side-by-side. I have tried and tried to locate it with no luck.

  • Doir Alexander May 07, 2007

    Sorry!! These old eyes misread the Model No. it is ED2FHEXNQOO I mistook the 2 for a Z. Anyway I located the two solenoids and they seem to be O.K. as I ran 110 to them and they both produced water. I may have to call one of your expert buddies to find the problem.

    THANKS

  • Doir Alexander May 07, 2007

    I meant, I may have to call someone local. No offence because you have given me the best information about this sort of thing I've ever recieved on line.

    Thanks again

    This is really bizzare! The repairman came here Three times. 1st he said the gearbox was broken so he replaced the ice maker ($150.00).
    Fine. It puts out one tray of ice and stops. 2nd time out he replaces the 2nd icetray with a third. 3rd time out he says the wiring to the heating element is burnt inside the wall of the refrigerator and he can do nothing. He puts the original unit back in and credits the ice maker ($115.00). I sill have no ice. I called the maker(Whirlpool) and they can tell me nothing because the refrigerator is almost two years old and has past warranty. Is all this possible?????

I had a 6 month old kenmore/whirlpool from sears, ice machine went..it was the auto defrost wasnt working and everything froze up including the water line or it may have been the heating element on the ice machine wouldnt heat up and allow the ice to dispence..anyway it was the control panel that the technician replaced with a new revised unit, now my door water dispenser just went..i think its plugged as the solenoids seem to making noise like theyre working

POSSIBLE YOU HAVE 2 SEPERATE WATER SOLENOIDS. THE SOLENOID FOR THE ICE MACHINE HAS A STRAINER AND ORFICE JUST INSIDE THE INLET SIDE OF THE WATER CONNECTION. CAREFULLY REMOVE THE ASSEMBLY AND CLEAN-IT. YOU CAN CHECK IF ICE MACHINE SOLENOID HAS POWER BY TAKING A METAL BUTTER KNIFE AND HOLDING IT JUST ABOVE THE COIL ... THE MAGNETIC FORCE SHOULD BE FELT TUGGING THE BLADE DOWN. LOSSEN THE NUT ON THE OUT-LRT SIDE OF THE ICE MACH. SOLENOID AND SEE IF YOU HAVE WATER ...

    DEPENDING ON THE MANUFACTURE AND DISTRIBUTOR ... THE ACTUAL MODEL OF THE APPLIANCE CAN VARY. THIS IS TRUE WITH ALL APLIANCES. SOME MANUFACTUTE MAY BE MAKING APPLIANCES FOR LETS SY SEARS, J.C PENNY, K-MART, ETC. THIS IS WHEN MODEL NUMBERS DONT MATCH UP. TRY GOING (IF KNOWN) TO THE STORE WERE YOU PURCHASED YOUR APPLIANCE ... (MOST HAVE ON-LINE SUPPORT) AND TRY GIVING THEM THE NUMBER YOU HAVE.

    GOOD LUCK ... I HOPE THIS HELPED

Not making Ice. Appears no water entering Ice making chamber even though water is at the door.


The water valve has two coils one for chilled water at the door and the other for the ice maker. Sounds as if the ice maker coil is bad. Hope this helps you to find the problem.

Ice maker no longer makes ice; water still comes for the filered water outlet but there appears to be no water going to the ice maker;


THE WATER VALVE IN THE BACK IS A TWO PART SYSTEM. EVEN THOUGH YOU GET WATER FROM THE DOOR THE ICE MAKER SIDE OF THE VALVE COULD BE BAD. CHANGE VALVE. B4 YOU SPEND THAT KINDA MONEY--DO A SELF CHECK FIRST--POUR WATER IN THE ICE CUBE TRAY. IF IT FREEZES AND DUMPS THEN CHANGE THEWATER VALVE. IF IT FREEZES BUT DONT DUMP CHANGE THE ICE MAKER.

The in-door water stopped working. The ice maker still gets water, but there is no water coming out of the door dispenser.


You more than likely have a bad water valve. Unfortunately, the water valve is a double valve ,one side services the ice maker,the other side the water dispenser.Even though the ice maker is getting water the whole valve has to be replaced. Hope this helps

Ice cube flap door


try this site...input your model # and look for the ice door parts. Maybe a bad spring. They are also very helpful with their chat and phone assist., video repair etc. Make sure to get the model # though.

I have a Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator and the water dipenser quit working, the ice maker works fine. Any solutions?


Check water valves on back of fridge, one is for the ice maker and other is for water dispenser. Need to get the correct and complete model number listed on front and near floor behind the fresh food door. Problem may be the water valve in back or the dispenser switch on the front. let me know and I will try to get it going for you.
Thanks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator, model # ED25PQ


Under the right side of the fridge in the back there is a dual valve for water and ice. Try changing it out, most likely the ice side is not working. Make sure you unplug the unit first

Ice maker Stopped producing ice


What is sounds like is somehow either the water delievery system is clogged or frozen. If your getting water out of the door, then it is probably frozen. If you are able to turn off the freezer for a bit, that would be an easy way to see if that is the problem without having to deal with Whirlpool or a handyman.
