Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

Not producing much ice

The ice maker is making ice very slowly. Recently, we unplugged the refrigerator and let it sit overnight. It made ice for a while (maybe a week or so), and has been slow again. Is there something I can do so the icemaker will work properly?

It should produce about 8 cubes every 2 hours , there is a small door to get to the ice bin make sure it stays closed , If you still have issues you may be expeirencing the begining of a cooling problem.

    My ice maker is making ice but very slowly. I have checked the water line to make sure water is flowing and that the line at the ice maker is not blocked in any way. Could it be a faulty selenoid switch?

    for how long very slowly?in every 2 hour the water become ice but the ice produce in your ice maker is maximum of 15 pcs small cubes,its means depend on the tray if is big or small. if you use your ice in every 30minute or your family is using an ice by 1bottle its means the ice produce is not enougth for your family.and the tray becomes empty after you use at the same time. but if the unit is hard to make an ice or frozen your frezer side its the unit is have a problem but is not to easy to repair by if your self coz the part inside is hard to remove.

    I have a Whirlpool Model EC3JHAXRL00. The ice

    Is the ice maker wire shutoff arm or switch (depending on
    models) in the OFF position?
     Is the water line shutoff valve to the refrigerator turned on?
     Has the ice maker just been installed? Is the freezer
    temperature cold enough to produce ice? Wait 24 hours
    after ice maker hookup for ice production to begin. Allow
    3 days after ice production begins to completely fill ice
     Does the ice maker mold have water in it or has no ice
    been produced? Make sure your refrigerator has been
    connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve is
    turned on.
     Has a large amount of ice just been removed? Allow
    24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice.
     Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? The filter
    may be clogged or installed incorrectly.
     Is an ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
    For models with an interior ice bin, remove the ice from the
    ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
     Is a reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
    your cold water supply? Make sue your connections are secure.
