SOURCE: Ice maker not working

I recently had trouble with both my water dispenser and my ice maker. I determined that my filter was clogged, so I replaced it. That fixed the water dispenser but the ice maker still wasn't working. I investigated further and found that the water inlet tube was frozen solid. Aparently, when the filter was clogged the water came in so slowly that it froze before it got to the icetray. I tried pouring hot water over the inlet tube to melt it and it mostly worked, but there was still some ice in the tube further back where I couldn't reach. Finally I defrosted the freezer so all the ice could melt and turned it back on and now it works great! Hope this might help.

You definitely have something wrong with the ice maker if the water has turned to ice Schmerold. And the IM is not harvesting. The way it works is the IM needs 28 degrees F to harvest. If the coils below in the condenser are dirty the IM won't try to harvest. The Ice Mold thermostat is mounted on the firewall of the Ice mold in its own little cubby whole. To access it you will need to remove the head. Then remove the shell separating the Ice mold from the heads housing. There you will find the ice mold thermostat. It's only function is to get it on. If the temperature is right in the freezer. To test this precious thermostat one needs only to stick it into a freezer and let it hang out for an hour or so. Then grab it and check it for continuity. If it is open it has failed and belongs in the file 13. It is easily replaced and inexpensive.
On your model, ice maker operation is controlled by an optical sensor mounted on both sides of the freezer liner. The usual failure of this model is a bad emitter board, located in one of these recesses. You may view the service instructions for checking this sensor.

SOURCE: whirlpool refrigerator ice dispenser no longer workds

Ok, I show parts that are available for that model, sounds like the control board is defective for your dispenser, or possibly the Ice maker control board. It also could be a break in the wiring or the control itself. Below is a break down for those parts, wiring and the control behind the push to dispense ice or water. Hope it is not that control because some places don't provide that part. Now if it's a connection problem that we can find, I will do mu best to help you solve this.Could you insure the model number is correct as this is very important? appliancepartsse@yahoo.com

SOURCE: Ice maker won't make ice

The water valve has 2 solenoids one for water and another for ice. The water solenoid is connected to a larger hose than the icemaker solenoid. The water solenoid is working but the Ice maker solenoid might be dead. BUT the ice maker might not be calling for water. It is the ice maker that powers up the solenoid to fill the ice mold. At the end of harvest a tiny copper plate mounted behind the main drive gear rubs across a copper contact. To tweek the amount of water a small screw is mount at the 3 oclock position of the ice maker head.HERE are some repair tips and photos

My Ic13b icemaker but when ice tray is full it still adds water to icemaker causing it to overflow and freeze on bottom of freezer


either your ice maker is calling for too much water or the water valve isn't shutting off when the ice maker tells it too. The best thing to do is to change both the ice maker and the valve because if one is defective more than likely thee other will fail shortly

Replace water inlet valve for ice dispenser with new. When icemaker cycles it dispenses through the water dispenser instead of tube going to ice maker. I have switch lines around but can only get water...


The ice maker is what tells the water control valve to open so it may be correct now and the thermostat in ice maker may be defective. Part 27 or 627985 down below where it says Whirlpool Ice Maker Parts Breakdown and in that photo is the ice maker thermostat. If your ice maker has been used for many years the complete ice maker may be better to replace. Ice maker Model=> 4317943

I have a whirlpool refrigerator . When the refrigerator completes its cooling cycle the motor and tray shakes and bangs the refrigerator. Can you tell me how to solve this problem Model # BT18NKXYWO1,...


I could not make the model number work but on them older model ice boxs they used the ice maker to do the defrosting. Remove the ice maker and the icebox is dead in the water. You can buy a module88d38c4.jpg that replaces that ice maker for much less than a new ice maker. You can also buy a gear kit (978138) for that ice maker but you may not have any success in rebuilding it. It is kinda complicated.

Recently (last week) purchased a KBRA22KSMM,need ice maker kit


I researched this for you in my data base. Man, this is a new unit. It suggested to use a IC13B.kit. The best price I found is at http://www.hhgregg.com/ProductDetail.asp?productId=23004 they are asking $59.97 plus shipping or if there is a hhgreg around, you can save shipping but will then pay tax. This is a brand new kit and I have not seen one of these yet. From what information I can find, it does come with every thing you will need to install in your unit.
Just a reminder.
Don't forget the water supply. If your replacing a fridge that had a ice maker or water in door. you will already have a supply. If you are going to have to run one, I suggest that you spend the extra few dollars and get the copper rather than the vinyl set. Good luck.
