Question about Whirlpool GS6NBEXR Side by Side Refrigerator
This unit has the ice bin in the door and the optic sensors to determin if the bin is full.I have followed the trouble shooting chart which was included with the unit and discovered that by unplugging the refigerator and plugging it back in the ice maker will cycle one to two times and then stop again. I suspect there is something wrong with the optic sensors but want to be sure of the correct parts to purchase. How can I fool the sensor to prove this part is dective? Are there steps that can be taken to troubleshoot the problem more completly?
Home repair, When you open the freezer door the lED on the right should flash 2 times with a pause repeatedly. If you hold the left side emmitter flap down, the LED should stay lit. If you have this, the optics are ok. The ejector blades should be parked in the 2:00 position when homed. You didn't say what the problem is but if it cycles, you should be filling. I would check out the fill spout first and make sure it is not frozen shut. If that is ok, I would suspect the inlet valve. Catriver.
