Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Hi Aaron !
I believe the brown flakes you are finding are coming from evaporated condensation. Let me explain ! As warm air and product hold more moisture then cold air or product when the door is opened and closed cold air in the fridge falls out and warm or ambient air replaces it. ( warm air rises and cold air falls ) The refrigeration process has an evaporator on the inside that is essentially colder than the temp you are maintaining the fridge at. Moisture is drawn out of the air and product and freezes to the evaporator thus drying the air in the fridge. When the compressor cuts out and the ice melts the moisture goes down the drain pipe and either collects in a container on top of the compressor or in a tray that has heated pipes from the refrigeration process through it. The moisture is then evaporated and leaving only the impurities of the air, dust and/or wet spills in the fridge. If you have a fan under you fridge or a breeze goes through there it is easily disturbed. Not a lot you can do as it is a part of the process. Wipe up spills, reduce door open times and keep door seal cleaned with warmed soapy water. Check fridge is level and square and doors close tight. Hope this helps tiger !

I bought a brand new smartwater replacement filter and after a very short time, my water stopped coming through the door.. took out the new replacement filter and inserted a brand new one .. problem solved.. apparently some of the g.e. smartwater filter replacement cartridges don't have the high enough two plastic inserts which are attached to them at the top of the filter when you screw them on... if you have taken your cartridge in and out a few times, i think it wears down the plastic so it doesn't fit properly and won't put up whatever it is supposed to push up to make the water come through.. I personally think this is a g.e. problem with the replacement filters...

This could be as simple as the door switch or as complex as the dispenser control board. I would try the door switch first. When the door is close it turns on the dispenser controls. If the contact is defective in the door/light switch then this happens. Unplug remove the door switch and mark wire locations. 1 Powers the lights and the other powers the dispenser. and one is the power itself. Sea Breeze

PROBLEM IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE TEMP SENSOR INSIDE ICE MAKER. I HAVE TRIED TO FIND THE PART, BUT WITH NO LUCK. IT LOOKS LIKE WE WILL HAVE TO PURCHASE A NEW ICE MAKER.

SOURCE: water dispensor stoppedworking
If the light and ice dispenser on the front panel works and If your fridge is 4 years old or older, the insulation in the freezer door has most likely deteriorated and the water in the tube feeding the water dispenser has probably frozen. Open the freezer door, put a blanket over the food to keep it from defrosting, and use a blow dryer to defrost the door. Blow the hot air on the flat panel inside the door (the backside of the water dispenser). Close the door about every 5 minutes to check to see if the water works. Once the water begins to flow, you have successfully defrosted the ice in the tube. Defrosting the door works for about 12 hours until it freezes again. To solve this problem, I placed a 10" weedeater line up thorugh the dispenser nozzle leaving about 1/8 of an inch sticking out. When the line freezes again, pull out the weedeater line, dispense water to free the ice, and then reinsert the weadeater line. I keep the line in all the time...it works great! If the light or ice dispenser do not work, the problem may be *********** board.
