Question about Whirlpool Gold GS6SHEXNQ 25.6 Cu. Ft. Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator w/ In-Door-Ice Ice Dispensi...
I have a whirlpool conquest side by side ref. my icemaker intermittently stops working, I have had the control modual replaced with the last year. I had the repair man come out again in about six months because it was no longer working. It turns out my supply line was frozen. So now when this happens I get the blow dryer out and defrost it. Now it is not working and I have checked the supply line. I was wondering if it may be the infrared sensor. When the freezer is closed should the red light stay solid or blink? How can I tell if that is the problem?

When you open the freezer door the light should be blinking. When you hold the flipper door shut (on the left hand side) without blocking the beam, the light should stay on solid. If all of this happens then the optics are o.k. If optics are ok then you most likely have a broken motor module on the icemaker and should replace the icemaker thermostat along with it. A bad icemaker thermostat will lead to the module breaking. If you not sure how to replace these parts then I would just replace the whole icemaker. That would be easiest and usually not much more expensive.

There are instructions available to repair this problem at www.AnyoneCanFixIt.com. They also sell the part needed to make the repair. Common problem on these refrigerators that were made in about 2005 or later and have the ice bin bucket on the door.

You have a better chance of finding out that the problem is a broken moduele. The fingers that grab the ice and rotate it out they should be resting at the 2 oclock posotion. If stuck in any other posotion its broken. It's expensive but not hard to do. If you had a bad soloniod you would either have a frozen tube or a block of ice at the top

Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors
