Your rubber tube is most likely not freezing up and therefore does not need to be heated but only you would know for certain. My experience with ice makes spans several different models but I've found the most common problem for me with no ice being produced is when the bar that shuts of the icemaker gets stuck in the up position because - ice cubes have frozen into a big clump, Ice cubes have jammed the bar by sticking between the ice tray and the bar, or the gear inside that rotates the ice cube tray is stripped in that area because of previous jams and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Side-by-Side Refrigerator No Water to Icemaker or Door

Check to see that you do have water to the water valve on the fridge. You can disconnect right where the water line goes into the valve on the fridge. Next, if you can, check power at the valve while activating the water dispenser. If you have power at the valve when activating then the water valve is bad. Let me know what you find.

Turn ice maker off for 24 hours to thaw out any additional frozen lines.
Make sure that you do have water from source to unit. Water valve grit screen may be clogged with debrie or water valve is bad.

SOURCE: icemaker does not work

Hello Netmindr32,
You will need to replace your inlet valve. The problem is the water is slowly leaking into your icemaker fill line and freezing up. You will have a double inlet valve and the line going to your dispencer may be working fine but the one going to the icemaker is not sealing off. Be sure to defrost all the ice out after replacing the inlet valve. And please allow several cycles of your icemaker before it makes its first batch. It can take 2-3 cycles to fill lines and filters depending on your model. Lots of luck to you and please let me know if this helped you. Mca0824@aol.com

Whirlpool side by side with water and icemaker. My water works perfectly fine but my ice maker no longer produces ice. It runs but it's not getting any water to make ice. What can be done to fix this?


There are a couple reasons your icemaker will not fill with water.
First thing you want to check for is a frozen fill tube to the icemaker. The easiest way to check for a frozen line is to remove the icemaker. Once the icemaker is removed look for ice in the fill tube. If there is ice in the tube the (water valve) will need to be replaced. You can melt the ice by forcing hot water up the fill tube.
Another reason could be the icemaker is not sending voltage to the water valve. The fix for this issue is to replace the icemaker. Hope this helps you with your whirlpool fridge!

The reason to change the water valve with a frozen water line is because the solenoid is not closing all the way. This allows water to enter the fill tube of the icemaker and freeze based on the temperature.

    Icemaker stopped producing ice


    Your ice maker can be rebuilt. I would disconnect it from the plug and remove it and carefully take it apart. Be careful not to loose the lever arm spring as you disassemble. Look at it once the screws ar removed under the front cover. It is rare to have a defective new water control valve. But once the ice maker is unplugged you will know because the ice maker is what tells the water to come on once the cube rake reaches home position. Sometimes the thermostat that tell the water on is stuck or the micro switch that tells the heater below the ice maker to remain on causing the same symptoms. So it will be most likely the ice maker and less likely the water control valve. The parts are priced so high it is cheaper to buy new than to buy parts. But I have fixed them without replacing parts. Sometimes the micro-switches just get stuck. What to rebuild it and me help you? Sea Breeze

    Icemaker


    Check to see if the little metal bar on top of the icemaker got flipped up or jammed when you put the ice container back in. This turns the ice machine off. This happed with my dad just the other day. I know it is simple, but he knew about this, and it still didn't dawn on him to check it. Just a thought!

    Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

    Most likely the second one.

    Whirlpool icemaker


    Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

    The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

    If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.
