Question about Whirlpool GS2SHAXM Side by Side Refrigerator
Ice maker on Whirlpool Conquest model # GS2HAXLB03 stopped making ice. Used in-door ice dispenser, ice flowed out, would not stop when lever released. Pushed "lock dispenser" setting on front to stop flow, then "unlock" but does make ice. On/off switch blinks red whether switch is in "on" or "off" position. It has done this for several years with no apparent adverse effect.

J, As you open the freezer door the LED on the right should flash 2X with a pause repeatedly. When you hold the left side emmiter down the light should stay on steady. If you have this, you know the optics are good unless the ejector blades are not home. First thing to check is where the ejector blades on the ice maker are parked. They should be resting in the 2:00 position. If they are not, you could have a broken module. If they are in the 2:00 positon the next thing to check would be the fill tube. You want to make sure it is not frozen over. You can disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through the line or visually inspect it. If all of the above mentioned check out, jump start the ice-maker. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the right side. Remove the harness cover. Pull the ice-maker straight out but be carefull not to smash the emmitter flap on the left side. Leave the harness connected. Get a jumper wire with the ends stripped apout a 1/4 inch. Unplug the refer and place the jumper in test holes T&H. Leave the jumper in and place the ice maker on the shelf where you can close the door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 30 seconds and open the door. The ice maker should be cycleing. Pull the jumper and place the module cover back on. Put the ice maker back in the rails. It should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Let me know how you make out. Catriver.

Sound like time for a new filter. When was the last time it was changed? If less than a year or two, it's not the problem. If more, it's likely the filter is clogged reducing the pressure flow of water.

If you can pull on the lever to make water flow stop, chances are there is a mineral buildup inside the valve, or the seat in the valve has failed. Either way, the valve normally needs to be replaced as they are not usually serviceable. Leave the Model number of the refrigerator so that I can check what to replace.

When you press the lever to dispense the ice, there are multiple switches being activated. Chances are, the one that moves the motor to turn out the ice is bad. Or that motor itself is bad.
