Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

Open Question

The ice maker (IM #S 106 2198597) on my Whirlpool Model ED5PHAXS001 refrigerator quit ejecting ice from the mold. I installed a new one and now it won't even fill the mold with water. It has plenty of water available at the water dispenser. What else should I be checking?

there is a tank in the refrigerator section that hlds about 1.5 gal of water as you dispense it refills and pushes out the cold water. if your unit is new it will need a day to cool down the tank of water before you will get cold cold water at the dispenser
Hope this help explain how it works

SOURCE: ICE MAKER QUIT MAKING ICE ON MY WHIRLPOOL FRIDGE

I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.

SOURCE: whirlpool refrigerator ice dispenser no longer workds

Ok, I show parts that are available for that model, sounds like the control board is defective for your dispenser, or possibly the Ice maker control board. It also could be a break in the wiring or the control itself. Below is a break down for those parts, wiring and the control behind the push to dispense ice or water. Hope it is not that control because some places don't provide that part. Now if it's a connection problem that we can find, I will do mu best to help you solve this.Could you insure the model number is correct as this is very important? appliancepartsse@yahoo.com

SOURCE: Ice Maker Overfills With Water

Ice maker has adjustment on right side of power head. If ice maker is inside on upper left, you can remove white cover from it and the adjusting screw in on right. Turning counter-clockwise will decrease fill by 1/2 to 3/4 of ounce. Sounds like a small amount, but ice make only uses 4 ounces per fill. If this does not fix, try replacing fill valve. If ice maker ice bin is in the freezer door, you have to remove cover to ice maker in the top of freezer. Ice maker is screwed into top of freezer and need to be removed to take off cover to adjuster screw. same procedure for reducing water flow time as above.

Ice maker not making ice


Check and see if a cubes or cubes are stuck in the ejection fingers. If the ice mold is full try cleaning the bottom coils. If the ice mold is empty check the water valve solenoid. Most times both the ice maker and water valve gets replaced at the same time. Nothing inside the ice box controls the ice maker. It does it all itself all it needs is for their to be 35f in the freezer or better.

The ice maker is not able to eject the ice cubes. You can see them partially exposed but they will not move. The unit keeps making noise...I assume it is trying to eject the cubes. How do I resolve this...


the under side of ice maker should be very warm. this is the heater that warms the ice mold . if its not hot ( warm) the the ice harvest is slow or not at all . if heater is bad or mold ruff or warn out . the ice mker wil have to be replaced . you can clean tray and use a food grade silcone and it will help if heater is ok .. mm .ps some times the ice cubes are too small and get jambed in the slots . if so adjust the cube side ( more water adjustment . this will correct the problem mm ..

My ice maker quit working, no water in the ice tray


Good day,
The process for harvesting involves the rakes turning clockwise until they hit the cubes in the well. At the same time an electric heater molded into the bottom of the ice maker heats the cubes so they will eject. Either the heater isn't working right or the drive motor is too weak to perform the harvest.
In either case the ice maker has to be replaced. As well, it is smart business to install a new water fill valve at the same time to prevent flooding.

My Whirlpool refrigerator Model # ED5RHEXNL00 Ice maker broken


Hello. Thanks for choosing fixya! The most common cause for your problem is that someone accidentally raised the wire in the icemaker area that turns it off. Check that first if the wire is up, push it down and within a few hours you will have new ice. The second most common problem is that the cubes in the mold got stuck in there. the fix is to use a blow dryer to free them up, then dry out the mold and spray some PAM cooking spray in to the mold to lubricate it. The final possibliity is that there is ice in the water supply line that feeds your ice maker. Once again get out the blow dryer and thaw that ice so that the water flows once again. good luck with it. regards, joe

Ice Maker not working


Get me the model number. Put tap water in ice maker tray and make sure arm is down. Let it freeze. Wait and see if the ice will drop, this should allow water to come into the ice maker for another run. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool Gold Ice maker doesn't work


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.

Ice Maker Infrared light doesn't light


Each mold tray has a heating element that is turned on to free the ice cubes from the mold tray and allow them to fall into the ice bucket when the tray is rotated into harvest position. Sounds like that is not being turned on... or is defective..
