Question about Whirlpool Gold White-on-White 21.9 cu. ft. Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Ice and Water GD2SHAXLQ Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

The icemaker won't make ice.

My father owns several rental properties, the tenants moved out so we decided to swap out the fridge at my house. We put one in and the icemaker would not make ice, so we put that one back and got an even newer model and it still will not make ice so we changed the cilinoid (however thats spelled). It still will not make ice, the water comes out just fine, but the ice tray is not being filled up. Since niether fridges made ice there has to be some kind of simple explanation such as an on/off switch somewhere that we don't know about, or a reset button. As far as we know both fridges made ice before they were moved. The model I have now is ED5FHEXNQ01. Any help would be appreciated.

    Ya, the bar is down, and I have had the fridge for about a week now and everything works great except no ice. I tried messing with the bar, and opened the door and hit the button, everything is working, but water is not getting to the tray for some reason.

It takes 24 hours after you plug the frig in for the first ice cubes to appear. If you have waited that long, maybe the ice maker is turned off. Look for the thin, coat-hanger-like metal bar on the right side of your ice maker. When this bar is up, the ice maker is off. When the bar is down, the ice maker is on.

During normal ice maker operation, the bar is up (the ice maker turns off) while the unit drops ice into the holding bin. The bar comes down (the ice maker turns on) when all the ice has been dropped. See our "Troubleshooting Guide" section for more details.

If the bar is up, gently lower it to begin making more ice.

Rented property without a lease agreement. Tenant refuses to vacate property on date agreed upon. What recourse do I have without a ease in Ogunquit, ME


Hi Jim:
I'd recommend you contact the local Government Agent's office or Court house to determine your legal position.
I would suggest that you immediately state the specifics of your agreement with them IN WRITING, and serve them with a WRITTEN NOTICE IF TERMINATION OF RENTAL AGREEMENT, including the date that they must be out of the property.
Best of luck.

Hello,
Make sure the arm on the icemaker is in the down position,if it is up and locked in place the icemaker is off. If it is down and the icemaker is turned on,each time it got cold enough the to cycle the icemaker(usually about a hour) the icemaker started and for 7 years power was sent to the water inlet valve to fill the icemaker and the icemaker side of the water valve is burnt up. The water valve has 1 inlet teh house water supply attaches to and 2 outlets 1 for icemaker and 1 for door dispenser

There are no brown liquids that any components of the refrigerator can create. There is refrigerant (colorless gas), refrigerant oil (light yellow oil), and clear water from the icemaker, if it has one. Remember that the drain water is from the freezer section, so a melted fudge-sicle in the freezer would get mixed in with the ice that was melted in the defrost-cycle.

Find common dimensions of refrigerators, height, width, depth


There's a zillion makes and models of refrigerators with new one's coming on the maket all the time.
There is no standard fridge manufacturers must follow.
When I find a bad machine, and the customer want's to replace with new, I advise them to take the width and height of their opening before shopping, or be willing to remodel.
Best advice I can give you is plan the refrigerator opening for the worse case scenario on all your rentals.
As a general rule, refrigerators are becoming larger, and probably will continue that trend.

Its a done deal...:) On MY whirlpool MODEL # ETICHMXKBO3 I found the drain hole frozen.. There was some debris and clogged it up and water froze up behind it causing the deck of my freezer to fill and freeze up and cause the water to drain into the fridge. Solution: remove the ice maker(if equipped) remove the rear aluminum cover. I used a heat gun and melted the 1 1/2 of ice build up and softly with a screw driver clean the drain. When drain is visible use scolding hot water until it starts flowing to the bottom tray. I used my air compressor to finish it off....
