Question about Refrigerators

2 Answers

I have a whirlpool K40 ice machine. The compressor comes on then cuts out immediately. everything else seems to be working ie water flowing, pump on

It was producing ice, has water flow. Now the compressor just cuts off as soon as it kicks in.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Side-by-Side Refrigerator No Water to Icemaker or Door

Check to see that you do have water to the water valve on the fridge. You can disconnect right where the water line goes into the valve on the fridge. Next, if you can, check power at the valve while activating the water dispenser. If you have power at the valve when activating then the water valve is bad. Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: slow water flow on Whirlpool Gold 25.6 cubic

The water line tap may be screwed back into the water line or you did not sufficiently poke a hole into the water line with the tap. We had the same problem. Shut off the water supply, remove the tap from the line and check the size of the hole. my bet is the hole is very small. Either drill out the hole with a drill and replace the tap (with a new rubber grommet) or add a tee into the line with the proper size compression fitting (that is what we did) and the water will flow freely..

SOURCE: No Ice is being made. Water is being despensed at the door but it seems that no water is going to the ice maker. Have good water flow to the pump.

Is the ice maker turned on?  The on/off switch is located on the top right side of the freezer compartment.  The manual says that there is a sensor beam that passes from one freezer wall to the other to shut off ice making when the bin is full.  Check to make sure nothing Is blocking that signal beam and that the bin is correctly installed.

ok, what you have not told me was the temp of the ice plate. If you have an inferred thermometer now is a good time to use it. what is the Temp of the plates or ice collection try. Ice will never collect if it is not below zero C. 32F my guess is it must be below 28F. you need some kind to thermometer.

The defrost cycle is not working. After a predetermined number of hours of compressor running time, a timer actuates the defrost cycle, which stops the compressor and turns on a heating element to melt the ice. Either the timer or heating element is not working. Also, make sure the melted ice water is actually draining and not re-freezing.

a few things to check, first off is adequate water supply(obviously).. next check your drain system, if your unit gravity drains look for a blockage, but if you have a secondary drain pump to pump away water check for proper operation, if that pump fails the machine will no longer let water in( thinks it full and no need to produce more ice if it cant get rid of old water
