Don't bother. If your icemaker is more than a few years old, it's probably pretty cruddy and needs to be replaced, especially if you have hard water. It's an easy job and you can get OEM replacements for Whirpool from Amazon for less than $100. But before you do, you need to check the diagnostics to make sure the full bucket sensor is working properly. This varies by model, but there is usually a blinking LED in the freezer that tells you what's going on.

Ice maker water will not shout off Model WRS965CIAE it just runs till the tray overfills


Hello Andy;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You have one of two problems.

1.) Ice maker module - Part Number 821515
http://www.ebay.com/bhp/ice-maker-module.

Fortunately, your ice maker is repairable. The module is like a little computer. It has a circuitry, a motor and a rotating gear set. The module tells the water solenoid valve when to turn on and how much water to fill the cube tray. Then it reads a sensor telling the module that the cubes are frozen. Then it turns on a heater under the cube mold. After a period the module tells the motor to turn on and harvest the ice cubes. It also has a lever arm on/off switch.

Watch the video. Remove the module from the ice maker. You may need a small flat head ***** driver to pop off the cover to get to it. Inspect the circuitry for any burn marks.

You will need to jump start the ice maker after reassembly and if you decide to just buy a new one.
1.) Insert a piece of 12 or 14 gauge jumper wire into the two holes on the face of the module marked: "T' and "H".
2.) Hold in the door light switch.
3.) After the module starts wait 5 seconds and remove the jumper, while still holding in the door light switch, until the ice maker has completer it's cycle and fills with water.
This will not solve your problem. This is how to start the icemaker - not shown in the video

Module Cost: Sears $98.56 + Tax
Ebay $25.00

2.) Ice Maker Water Solenoid Valve: Part Number W10341320.
If your ice maker is filling with water, then the solenoid is working, but the spool valve may be sticking and not closing quickly.

See general replacement video.

Solenoid Valve Cost: Sears $80.00
Search the internet for best price including used.


Go into the Sears website and put in your refrigerator model number. You will get diagrams and component part numbers.

Hello Mary;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
You probably have a stuck spool or a plugged screen in your single solenoid water valve as a result of not running the unit.
You must also be careful, plastic tubing over time exposed to the normal heat that comes off the compressor, will dry out become brittle and crack. This is the tubing from the ice maker solenoid to your ice maker water feed tube, will one day need to be replaced.
I suspect your ice maker is fine. Lets check it out. I have faith that you can do this. Without unplugging you unit, Remove the white square cover on the front of your ice maker. This cover pops off. There are no screws or retainers. You may need a small flat head screw driver (or butter knife) to wedge the cover off.
After the cover is off, you will see what is called the ice maker motor module. In the center of the module is a small white gear. You will see several small holes. At the 5:00 position you will see 2 holes. One hole is marked 'T' and the other hole is marked 'H'.
We are going to force start the ice maker by jumping it. So, we need a jumper.
Make a jumper - obtain a 3" long piece of either 12 or 14 gauge wire. Strip 1/2" off each end to show bare wire. Form this wire into a horse shoe shape. Perhaps your local hard ware store can help you make one.
Now, put one end of the wire into the 'V' hole and one end into the 'H' hole. The white gear will start to turn. After about 3 seconds remove the jumper wire. At this time your ice maker is cycling. There are fingers that rotate and discharge the ice cubes from the ice cube mold. When these fingers reach the 12:00 position your water valve opens. I suspect you will not hear the normal water flow into your ice maker and you will leak water at the valve.
Therefore if the ice maker cycles (No water fill) and the water valve leaks - bad water valve.
I am limited on the length of my response to questions. Post question. Let us change the water valve. The water valve over the internet is about $25.00.

My maytag msd2433he only makes one tray of ice. It has a new filter, plenty of water pressure and no air in the line


Hello Dave;
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
Lets run a check on your ice maker:
1.) Remove the plastic front cover on the ice maker. Do not unplug your unit and do not remove the ice maker. Having removed the cover you will see a white gear with a plastic shaft in the center.
2.) On the right is a metal wire arm for turning the ice maker on and off. Put the arm in the down position and then lift it up until it locks in place. Did it lock? If not reinsert the wire end into the back of the motor module. The motor module is the assembly with the plastic gear.
3.) Lets cycle your ice maker. On the front of the ice maker there are 2 holes at the 5:00 position off of the dial they are marked 'T' & 'H'. With a short length of about 12 gauge wire, strip about 1" off each end. What you are going to do is put on end into the 'T' hole and the other end into the 'H' hole. A few seconds after the dial starts to rotate remove the jumper. Observe the complete cycle.
Does it fill with water?
4.) Remove the ice maker. There is 1 screw on the bottom - completely remove. There are 2 screws on the top. These are hangers. Back off the screws so you can lift the ice maker up and away from the wall. With a small screw driver wedge it into the wire harness connector to release.
5.) Remove the 3 retaining screws and disconnect the control arm. Inspect the subassembly for burn marks or broken plastic parts.
6.) You may have a bad thermostat. The thermostat is located between the ice maker module assembly and the cast steel ice cube mold. This sensor tells the motor module that the water is frozen. Then the motor module tells the heater which is on the bottom of the
mold, that the water is frozen and for the heater to turn on. Then the module tells the motor to rotate the harvesting fingers. Maybe a bad heater? Maybe the motor module is bad? Parts are available for your ice maker unit.

Thanks but, I knew this part was working


Iceman, here's a little deal I wrote, check it out, Catriver
Diagnosing Whirlpool and Kenmore s/s with ice bucket in door.
Upon opening of the door the emitter light should flash 2 times with a pause repeatedly. Then when holding the left side emitter flap down the light should stay on steady. If you have this scenerio, your emitter boards are working properly. If you do not, check the following:
First thing to check is the position of the ejector blades on the ice maker. They should be at rest in the 2:00 postion. If you find them in any other position than that, it’s more than likely a module failure. The module is located on the front of the ice maker. To remove the ice maker from it’s mount, remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the lower right side. Remove the harness cover. Now the ice maker will pull straight out. Unplug the harness. The module is held in by 3 screws in the corners and will pull off.
Often, the black fill tube located on the ceiling will freeze causing a no water fill. This can be fixed by thawing with a hair dryer or some sort of baster using hot water.
To jump start the ice maker do the following: Unplug the refrigerator. With the ice maker out of it’s mount but connected to the harness use a insulated jumper wire stripped a quarter inch on each end and place the jumper in the holes marked T & H on the module. Place the ice maker with the jumper in, on the shelf with enough clearance to close the freezer door. Close the freezer door. Plug the refrigerator back in and wait 50 seconds. Now open the door and see if the module is rotating. If so remove the jumper, put the cover back on the module and place the ice maker back in its mount. The water fill should take place when the ejector blades are at the 12:00 position. Note that on some models, after you have done the aforementioned proceedure you have to press and release the light switch 3 times for the module to start.

Icemaker not making ice


First thing to check is to see if the optics are working properly. This is the red flashing light on right hand side of freezer wall. Close the flipper door, be sure not to block the beam, and the light should go to solid red. If it does then the optics are ok. If it continues to blink then that is your problem. If optics check ok then pull ice maker out and remove the white plastic cover. It just pulls off. Look at the center of the gear wheel and see if one of the plastic tabs is either broken or if they are sort of twisted and touching eachother. If any of these things with the gear have happened then that module will need to be replaced along with the ice maker thermostat. If your not sure how to replace these parts then just replace the whole ice maker. That is much easier and not much more costly.
After changing the parts or the ice maker out follow these steps to start the ice maker thru a cycle. 1. Remove the ice maker from the cradle but leave the harness connected. Remove the front cover from the module. Unplug the refrigerator. Get a small jumper wire with bare ends and jump T and H on the module, leave the jumper in and set the ice maker on the shelf. Close the door. Now plug the refer back in and wait 30 seconds. Open the door and the ice-maker should be cycling. Remove the jumper, put the module cover back on and set it back in the cradle. The fill should take place when the ejector blades reach the 12:00 position. Follow these steps exactly in order
