    where can I get that part and what will the cost be around, this all started with my ice maker when it started to stop doing Ice cubes and then the freezer temp started to go down, I then emptied the freezer and notice ice build up behind the panel so opened the door and let it sit over night so it can defrost, is this a good solution and do I need to do anything else.

You must replace the defrost heater and thermostat located behind the freezer wall panel.

    Go go repairclinic . com and enter your model number. Follow the prompts for the part. Cost about $40.00.
    When you open the freezer panel use a VOM set for ohms. Disconnect the heater wire leads. Read the ohms on the heater leads. If it reads OK you will need a control board not a heater.
    The control board is on top of your fridge.

Ice maker ice jam


Not a whole lot you can do but to keep the frost down.
If you are able to move the items in the freezer to another freezer and let it sit overnight, all your problems will melt away....
Until a couple months later when it builds up

Make sure to double check your freezer is sealing correctly, bad gasket causes moisture to be sucked in.

Here are some basic ways to slow the buildup

My ice maker not making enough ice . I have already check the water. thank you


When an icemaker slows production, the problem is not the icemaker at all but the temps in the freezer warming up because of an airflow problem either in the freezer compartment evaporator coils or underneath the unit that being the condenser coils. (Fan not working or lint blockage)
Airflow problems in the freezer compartment are caused by the fan or the automatic defrost system not functioning properly so yu end up with an ice block / lots of frost in the freezer compartment on the back wall of the compartment.

Check for ice or large amounts of frost in the freezer compartment. If you note ice / excessive frost, unplug the unit, empty the freezer compartment and do a manual defrost by directing an external fan into the compartment for just over 2 hours. This will ensure the evaporator coils and the freezer compartment drain have thawed. While the manual defrost is in progress remove the rear fiberboard cover from the compressor access and check / clean the condensor coils and fan area.
After 2 hours clean up the excess water.. reassemble the rear cover and return the unit to NORMAL service. It should start making lots of ice in 4 to 6 hours. Here is the kicker... if there is an auomatic defrosting problem your icemaker will after 2 - 3 days again slow ice producion and ice will build up in the evaporator area. You will have to keep repeating the manual defrosting process every 3 to 4 days until the automatic defrost system is repaired.

There are 3 main components of the Automatic defrost system:
1. Defrost control
2. Defrost heater
3. Defrost thermostat or depending on type thermistor

Most of the time the problem is either the defrost control or the heater that fails and the unit stops defrosting.

Freezer working only slightly. Refridgerator not working at all.


If you have ice build up behind the panel inside the freezer, you most likely have a bad defrost heater. You can remove the back inside panel of the freezer. Take a hair dryer and defrost the ice. When the ice is gone you can inspect the heaters. If they are not fixed it will continue to happen. When the coils ice over, first the freezer will get warmer. The first complaint is that the ice maker stops working. Then the ice cream starts melting (Due to the sugar in ice cream, it has to be around 0 degrees to stay froze solid). Then the fresh food section starts warming due to the fans not being able to force air into the fresh food section.
Please rate solution if helpful. Thanks

Water from ice makers leaks and builds up in botom of freezer


ice maker leaks are usually a sign of icemaker mold corrosion eating the lining off the icemaker causing it to leak. the only repair is to replace the complete icemaker. you will need a complete model number from the unit and the part can be ordered online thru whirlpool or some of the other appliance parts sites. you may even have a local parts warehouse where you live. hopw that helps peyton

Freezer and ice maker stopped working


Hi, Your problem will be fixed for a short time by defrosting the appliance but you really need to know why it is doing this? It could be several reasons for it! The main cause is that the defrost heaters have failed and so it does not deforst enough before it starts feeezing again causing the ice buid up again! Check them with a muti meter just to make sure. Let me know how you get on!
