Question about Refrigerators
Slow to make qubes
Refrigerator self defrosting feature is not working. When that happens the interior temps of the freezer do not go low enough to allow the ice maker to work. Check the defrost timer and the defrost heating element for proper operation.
When temps are ok the unit should produce a batch of ice every two hours or so.

Is your fan blowing in the freezer? Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.

It has a defrost problem. Most likely cause would be the defrost thermostat which clips onto the evaporator behind the back panel in the freezer. Next most common would be the defrost timer. Third would be the defrost heater. Let me know if you want to try to test these parts. If so I will need the entire model # from the sticker in the fridge or on older models on a plate at the bottom front below the door.

SOURCE: freezer no frost
This is probably due to the failure of defrost timer or the heating coil..Try this
1)The defrost timer is sometimes found behind the front grill of the refrigerator. It may also be found behind a cover plate inside the refrigerator or freezer, in the temperature control console, or behind the refrigerator near the compressor.
The timer is usually held in place with one or more screws. Remove the screws and gently pull the timer out far enough to disconnect the wiring connector.
Locate the timer switch and turn it clockwise until you hear it click. One click and the refrigerator shuts off = defrost mode, second click the compressor and fans come back on = run/cooling mode.
2)If this doesnt work then Test the heating element for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading somewhere between zero and infinity. Because of the number of different elements we cannot tell what your reading should be, but we can be certain of what it shouldn't be. If the reading is zero or infinity the heating element is definitely bad and should be replaced. Proper power ( careful!! ) to the heating element ( 110-120 volts AC ) and the defrost heater does not come on = bad defrost heater.

Are the ice cubes being formed the same size as before? If
freezer temperatures are increasing above 5 Degrees Fahrenheit in freezer this will slow down and at
times stop ice production. Look around
the rear wall of your freezer to see if a layer of frost is building. If yes
this will indicate a defrost problem that in turn raise freezer and fresh food
temperatures. Here is a Whirlpool Ice Maker Troubleshooting PDF
