J, As you open the freezer door the LED on the right should flash 2X with a pause repeatedly. When you hold the left side emmiter down the light should stay on steady. If you have this, you know the optics are good unless the ejector blades are not home. First thing to check is where the ejector blades on the ice maker are parked. They should be resting in the 2:00 position. If they are not, you could have a broken module. If they are in the 2:00 positon the next thing to check would be the fill tube. You want to make sure it is not frozen over. You can disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through the line or visually inspect it. If all of the above mentioned check out, jump start the ice-maker. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the right side. Remove the harness cover. Pull the ice-maker straight out but be carefull not to smash the emmitter flap on the left side. Leave the harness connected. Get a jumper wire with the ends stripped apout a 1/4 inch. Unplug the refer and place the jumper in test holes T&H. Leave the jumper in and place the ice maker on the shelf where you can close the door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 30 seconds and open the door. The ice maker should be cycleing. Pull the jumper and place the module cover back on. Put the ice maker back in the rails. It should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Let me know how you make out. Catriver.

I have a Whirlpool Model GD5YHA. The icemaker is not making ice. The red light is blinking.


Your have not given the full model #. Anyway most likely you have the Ice Maker Optical Level Sensor.

Just red light blinking does not mean faulty here. There is a Optical Sensor check sheet. You have to follow those instructions.

Google "Whirlpool Ice Maker Optical Sensor check sheet". You will get the instruction sheet and/or youtube videos on the subject.

Not making Ice means either the ice maker is faulty or Optical sensor faulty or water valve cannot feed water due to malfunction or line frozen. Also freezer should be below - 12C to ice maker sensor to work.

Ice maker will not make ice


If you have water sitting in the trays and no action is happening, then i suggest replacing the ice maker complete as these spares are pricey and take a while to get to you , (In the hope that they are correct). On some units there is a small test button. If you have one, push or switch it to activate icemaker. Often this resetting brings the ice maker back on line.
