Ice maker broken.


Google search your manufacturer make and model and the word service manual. If one is available, you can find it in the search results.

Since you mentioned that the replacements are discontinued, unless you find a similar model to pull a part from, you may have to plastic weld or glue the broken part.

Not making ice


Hello locket_mba, I am happy to assist you!

If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help resolve your issue:

·It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.


·Make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.


·When was the last time the filter was changed? Water filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency.


·The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!


·The water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, may need replacing. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

Hope this helps!

call your local appliance parts store in the yellow pgs. with your model no.
They will give you the exact number and sell it too. I use them all the time for tech info.

My whirlpool conquest side by side frig purchased in 2008 has a red blinking light in the freezer the ice maker is not working at all.


The blinking light goes to the ice maker on/off sensor. This is actually a real easy fix. The sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. If you look at the blinking light you'll notice there are two screws holding that section in. Directly across from that is another white piece held in by one or two screws. Whenever you close the door the beam is complete and the ice maker will turn on. To order the parts, find your model number, which is normally located in the refrigerator side, and then call any parts distributor ( i use appliance parts depot), and tell them you need the ice maker sensor kit. Thecost shouldn't be more than $50 I think. Hopefully this helps and let me know if you have any other questions.
