Question about Refrigerators

Our fridge does not make ice - Whirlpool Gold side-by-side GS5SHAXNT00

Our fridge stopped making ice a few weeks ago; we did not notice until last week when we emtyed the ice bucket - it was 1/2 full; after that it was no ice and we could not hear the water running into the ice-making-chamber - we usually could hear when it was running.
We checked the water filter, we checked the switch on the right side - it is on; the temp is '4'; the water from the dispenser is coming - what could be the problem? thanks, Zam Oyvetsky.

    almost exactly the same problem-we emptied the ice container on the door and replaced it and the refridgerator has stopped making ice. The switch is on, the water is hooked up and the freezer is cold.

    My Whirlpool Gold is not making ice either and everything is hooked up correctly and turned on-water dispenser works but no ice. Very frustrating! Not happy at all with this Whirlpool. Also, the water dispenser leaks a few drops after dispensing and have flushed the lines repeatedly-there is no air in them.

    No ice is being made. Infa red is in on position, but how do I know if it is actually communicating as it should be? No ice is being made, however, water is coming out without a problem. Is there anythig I can check before having it serviced?

Same as others. Whirlpool Gold side-by-side. Water was running yesterday but minimal ice. Now that's gone and I don't even hear the water. Turned on/off the infrared sensor. Still get drinking water, just no ice in the bin. There's a couple cubes in the maker itself when I open the door (which I've closed completely). Help?

Same problem. Whirlpool Gold side-by-side. The other day there was minimal ice and I heard the water fill for ice. Nothing falls into tray. I turned off infrared and turned back on. Nada but I can get water, just no ice. Help?

Whirlpool Gold Ice Maker Quit Working


IF THE FRIDGE IS COOLING AND FREEZING WITHOUT AND HASSLE THEN YOU DONT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR CONTROL BOARDS.ALSO IF THE WATER IS STILL COMING OUT THE WATER SIDE OF IT.YOU NEED TO LOCATE THE WATER VALVE AND CHECK IF THE VALVE TO THE ICE MAKER IS NOT BLOWN THAT MIGHT BE THE CAUSE OF THE FRIDGE NOT MAKING ICE.

GOOD LUCK.
