Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
No air circ fan still works its a whirlpool conquest gold
SOURCE: Stop making ice
check if there is ice in the ice maker, see if there is water coming in to the ice maker. maybe a water problem or a solenoid problem...if there is no ice in the ice maker...try to pour manually a cup of water on the ice maker and empty the ice bin so that you can observe if the ice maker is working if there would be ice in the bin after an hour. if there is ice, then a water problem is most likely to look at. i hope the freezer is working perfectly..

Don't let them tell you that the problem is related to "sulfur" in your water. It's a scam so that they don't have to repair the problem. The actual problem is that they don't use quality parts to build these units anylonger.

the ice maker is of a poor design. There is a wheel that essentially is the mechanical timing device of the icemaker. The shaft in the wheel is of poor design and it breaks leaving a non-functioning useless ice maker. Whirlpool does not sell the wheel & shaft assembly - you have to virtually buy a new icemaker. Takes about 10 minutes to replace. Charge for the part = $107; charge for the labor = $175

If the freezer is working at it's normal temperature then follow this procedure to get the ice maker up and running.
First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.
