Question about Whirlpool GI1500XH Stainless Steel
The ice mager stop making ice, but I saw the froster on the pipe inside of the bin. I noticed that the exhaust fan for the compressor is not spinning, not sure if it is the issue.
You have frost on the pipe, that's good. It means the compressor and its charge of Freon is still OK. You didn't mention whether you had water flowing or not... I'll presume so. The fan by the compressor is crucial. It must be running in order for this unit to make ice. OK, you have removed the 4 screws holding the lower panel and removed the panel. The entire unit must be removed from the cabinet to proceed. Pull it out. *Take note of the drain hose, this may be difficult to re-install. After you have it out, unplug it, turn the water valve off and remove the cover off the back of the unit. Now reach in there with your hand and feel the blades on the fan, rotate them... do they rotate freely? If so, your condenser fan motor has failed and must be replaced. Getting to it... Go to the front of the unit, remove the two bolts holding the cabinet to the base. Then tilt the cabinet backwards, this will expose the problem child. (be careful not to bend/kink any copper tubing or wiring when you do this. And prop the cabinet so that it doesn't fall back down or fall all the way back.) Now, replace the fan motor with part #4387244, it can be purchased for about $70 at you local appliance parts store. Rebuild and you are good to go!
