Probably a bad inlet valve on the lower back where the house water line hooks to the refrigerator. Its a 2 part inlet valve. Half feeds water to the dispenser and half feeds water to the icemaker. You can't change half--need a complete valve assembly. Not hard to change. Disconnect house line---unplug 2 wiring plugs (4 wires total) and disconnect 2 plastic water lines. Reverse to install---don't get wiring mixed up or reversed.
You must shut the water valve to change the water filter. If you don't havewater valve near the fridge, shut the main water valve for few minutes. If you turn the water filter to change without shutting the water valve, lots of water flooring the fridge and you do lots of work to remove the water inside the fridge. Shut the water valve, and then replace the filter. Then turn the water valve.
do you know if it is a whirlpool made model, 27ft french door, ice maker in ceiling, they had issues with a seal between ice compartment and ref side- leaks freezing air to water tank area, freezing tank. other wise if its not the filter -then water flow to unit. ck where it connects to ref, if good( should have steady stream with press. replace ref valve if bad look at your valve in wall or at sink.
WR57X10026 This is the actual part number you need for this repair. You said you changed the valve but there are two water valves in the machine. The part number listed at the beginning is the kit that has both valves, and when you change the parts, make sure the water lines are connected in the correct spots.
Hi this is most likely the damper assembly not the thermostat, the damper assemly is on the left side of the refrigerator compartment in the very top corner up there, sometimes depending on the model this damper runs 3/4 of the length of the left wall there. This entire assembly needs changed.
If the instructions are different than below,I will need you model number.
Water Tank Assembly (some models)
1. Remove crisper drawers from fresh food compartment.
2. Remove hex screw holding water tank to rear

To clean I would use Clorox and warm water and rinse well before replacing. Thanks, Sea Breeze
Have you checked your water valve? I dont have your model number but you could have what you call a double water valve and one side of it may be out, alternately you may need to change your water filter if you havent done that yet. I have seen were the water stops dispensing first and then stops making ice. have you changed the filter lately? If not change it then if that doesnt work check water inlet valve...
Frozen water tank, some of these had an insulation kit that will prevent this from happening. Make sure you have water coming out of valve to tank, if so it will probley be a frozen tank. Make sure fridge is on factory settings. If it doesnt thaw out, check into the frozen tank kit...
