Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

1 Answer

I bought a replacement for my Whirl Poor Refrigerator's icemaker and installed it about a year ago. It has worked perfectly until recently. It is still working but does not produce as much ice as it did or as we need. I have checked the water line and the unit to make sure that there is no blockage. Any ideas as to what I might do now.

Generally low ice production can be attributed to a couple of things. first and most importantly is temperature problems in order for the ice maker to pmake ice at a consistant rate the temp has to be 0 farenheight if it is not it causes slow production. altho you may have the temps set low enuf you need to check to be sure the coils underneath the unit are clean. also monitor door openings and heavy usage.
The next thing that can cause slow ice production is a bad temp sensor in the ice maker itself. this part is replaceable and is inexpensive usually less than 20.00 dollars. 
One last thing that can happen is the icemaker may be cycling twice to get enough water to make a full mold of ice this is very rare and you would notice occasional hollow ice cubes or very small cubes.
Hope thi info helps you out thanks Peyton

We recently replaced the icemaker in our samsung french door refrigerator,the icemaker worked fine for a few days and now no water goes into it,, we replaced the filter as well


Hi my name is Sean, you will need to check water pressure going into refrigerator, If you have adequate pressure, you either have a bad main board, or bad valve, depending on the year the boards were a problem in this unit affecting the icemaker especially. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Icemaker/water dispenser not working.


Just had to defrost the water tank inside the fridge for a few minutes. Using a waterproof heating pad with extension cord did the trick. Even a fridge needs a warm blanket from time to time.

Refrigerator is actually an ARB2217 with warm refrigerator/cold freezer


I had a Freezer... recommend to change the coils or make another tubing that would replace the leaking area, then to replace the freon or coolant... then they have to make sure that they would place in the right amount of coolant or else the freezer won't work perfectly.

Ice maker stopped working


are the "fingers" of the icemaker pointed toward you and slightly up? if not the icemaker is internally broken . is the red light to the right blinking twice and then a one second pause? if not the emmitter is broken. is the black hose coming from the ceiling blocked with ice ? if so the water vave is broken allowing water to seep in hose and freeze. hope this helps.
