Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
The sensor light is not blocked and ice is not built up. the water side works. the ice side does not. i have disconected the water line that goes to the ice maker and san blow air through it. the line is not clogged. any thoughts? My problem is two part. I have a Roper side by side w/ water and ice dispenser on the door. If you would open the door and touch the front panel between the freezer and the fridge it is very hot to the touch. Second, is the ice maker is not producing ice or very little at best. Are these problems related or separate? Please help me!
The 2 "problems" are most likely only 1 problem. The door frame has a heater that keeps water from condensing on the frame tween the freezer and refrigerator sections. It should be warm but not so warm that it is uncomfortable to keep your hand on it.
Now your saying verry little ice at best? Do you notice ice in the bin that the refrigerator has made? You can try switching the wires on the water solonid on the back of the fridge then push in the button on the water delivery switch (like filling a glass) if the valve is working the water should flow on into the ice maker and you can feel it or see it being in the ice maker. then you know the problem is, or is not in the water valve. If you leave it connected this way for an extended time like 4 to 6 hours you should notice a mess comming out of the water delivery spout in the front. This will be because the ice maker is comming around and asking for water to come into the ice maker. However because you have switched the wires on the valve it comes out the door. If you dont get any water out the door the Ice maker isthe most likely suspect but it could also be the wiring going to the valve.
If this helps you find the next step in solving your trouble please rate me has high as you can and thank you for using fixya.
