The book says it can take 24 hours to start making ice, but normally only a couple of hours. Make sure the you have water coming to the fridge, then check on any warranty. Your fridge has a energy recomended setting that will be fine.

Freezer is icing up we have already vacuumed the vents in teh front and the back of the refridge and it is still icing up


Hello, This is a common problem, the first thing to check is the overall internal refrigerator temperature. The proper temperature should be between 35-42 degrees.Here are some things to try:
  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 25 degree try turning the temperature up slightly.
  • If you find the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom(where it is coldest) try putting produce or other sensitive product on a higher shelf
  • If the temperature is too low and you cant make it warmer by adjusting the thermostats, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so you need to replace it because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the seal(refrigerant) system, cold air migration(in side by side models) or a defective air damper.
Thanks

Ice maker works but water dispenser stopped working


There sould be a set of water control valves on rear of refrigerator and where the water comes into refrigerator dispenser and ice maker. When one goes bad you replace both. You can test the windings in each coil or test for voltage while someone presses dispense water.I will ty to locate one set with your model number. Sea Breeze

Side by Side refrig. ice maker has water in tray but does not dispense ice.


Check to see if the coils under refridge are clean . If they are , replace the icemaker . An icemaker has to be 5 degrees to dump the cubes . Dirty coils can raise the temperature to 6 or even higher , therfore the icemaker will make ice , but not dump them .

Whirlpool side by side (106.56692501). Refrig was not cooling but freezer is. Freezer is slowly heating up though. Unit is still running. It just isn't blowing air into the refrigerator.


You have ice in freezer fins. You need to remove back panel inside of freezer, melt all the ice replace panel, plug refridge back in. The ice causes bad airflow to the refridge side, causing to heat up.

Whirlpool gold ice maker problem


  • The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
  • Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. 
  • In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. 
  • note: The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.
