You definitely have something wrong with the ice maker if the water has turned to ice Schmerold. And the IM is not harvesting. The way it works is the IM needs 28 degrees F to harvest. If the coils below in the condenser are dirty the IM won't try to harvest. The Ice Mold thermostat is mounted on the firewall of the Ice mold in its own little cubby whole. To access it you will need to remove the head. Then remove the shell separating the Ice mold from the heads housing. There you will find the ice mold thermostat. It's only function is to get it on. If the temperature is right in the freezer. To test this precious thermostat one needs only to stick it into a freezer and let it hang out for an hour or so. Then grab it and check it for continuity. If it is open it has failed and belongs in the file 13. It is easily replaced and inexpensive.
On your model, ice maker operation is controlled by an optical sensor mounted on both sides of the freezer liner. The usual failure of this model is a bad emitter board, located in one of these recesses. You may view the service instructions for checking this sensor.

Repairing this is pretty easy once you know how ice
makers work. Just remember there are thousands of different models of
refrigerators and it will always be a good idea to write your model number and
brand name somewhere because that will be the first thing the repair parts
vendor will ask for. On refrigerators most times will be around the inside door
frame of the fresh food compartment. Then you will have the Kenmore Brand model
numbers that look like this 790.99012 Most of that information can be found on
this page Locating the Number's enough about that part an ice maker unfortunately
has about a five year life span and most whirlpool brand have repair parts but
by the time you add the parts and time you could have already bought a new ice
maker. This of course is not to say your ice maker is at fault here. If you
have no ice or shrinking ice in the ice slots of your refrigerator fill with
tap water and make sure ice maker is turned on. Once the water in the ice maker
(if ice maker is good) freezes it should drop into ice bin. If water does not
refill thist points to the dual water control valve located on back and near
floor. Below is a video that I find very informing weather you have a Whirlpool
or another brand. If video does not appear below then click here=> Broken Ice Make Repairs Most
people say if they have water in fountain that they should also have ice but
the fact is the dual water control is called that because one side fill the ice
maker while the other controls the water dispenser. If to have a multi-meter
and would like to test please let me know. With wiring disconnected from the
water control valves you have a coil that acts as a magnet to pull a metal
plunger open when ice maker calls for water and the coil for the dispenser side
both should read from 150 to 250 ohms. at the terminals coming out of them. If
not then they should be replace with a complete new water control valve. If you
have questions or need more answers please let me know, Thank you Sea Breeze.
