Question about Whirlpool ED2FHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator
The manual doesn't tell me anything about that blinking red light at the icemaker on/off switch. It's not producing ice, the water line isn't frozen, the freezer is good and cold, there is no ice jammed in the storage bin or dispenser parts. Help! My Whirlpool Gold icemaker will not work after I replaced the filter. Water lines seem fine. Just doesn't make any ice. I have move to the temp to the next level and cleaned the grills. Still nothing has happened. Any suggestions? Thanks
When you open the freezer door the light should be blinking. When you hold the flipper door shut (on the left hand side) without blocking the beam, the light should stay on solid. If all of this happens then the optics are o.k. If optics are ok then you most likely have a broken motor module on the icemaker and should replace the icemaker thermostat along with it. A bad icemaker thermostat will lead to the module breaking. If you not sure how to replace these parts then I would just replace the whole icemaker. That would be easiest and usually not much more expensive.

I have a Kenmore Coldspot 106.55526400 and I'm in a very similar boat. I found a cube lodged in the plastic teeth which apparently stopped the sweeping rotation. After this no water in the tray. Cleared the ice out of the tube that dispenses water to the tray and got water and subsequently ice in the tray, but no heating or subsequent sweeping motion from the rotating arm. I took the apparatus apart and appears to be no broken parts. Gear is in tact as is the rod it spins. I'm thinking the motor burnt out trying to turn when the ice cube was lodged in the teeth. Thanks for your insights FridgeTech (esp. optics!)

I'm having the same problem. When the flipper is down, the red blinking light stops. I do not hear water being filtered through to make ice.

SOURCE: Icemaker not producing ice
Most automatic ice makers have a lever (looks like a piece of wire) that is prevented from being in the down position when the bin is full. This stops the ice maker from producing ice when not needed. The lever can also be lifted manually to a locked up position which turns the ice maker off as well. If the lever is in the up position, simply press down on it, it should release and return to the down position. Once down, the ice maker will begin producing ice again (the unit will have to complete its cycle before you see any ice, normally a couple hours or less). Hope this helps.
Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating.

You have a better chance of finding out that the problem is a broken moduele. The fingers that grab the ice and rotate it out they should be resting at the 2 oclock posotion. If stuck in any other posotion its broken. It's expensive but not hard to do. If you had a bad soloniod you would either have a frozen tube or a block of ice at the top

produce has more water in it to freeze. Try turning down the temp in the fridge part of the unit you may try putting a termometer in there to gauge where it should be adjusted to, about 38-41 degrees is a safe temp for keeping food.
