Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
Whirlpool Model GD5RHAXNQ00 hiltonjug responded to my intial question about icemaker not dumping. Said to check heater with ohm meter, which I did and found continuity across contact tips. hj said if heater ok must be micro switch. I checked icemaker parts manual Page 19 & 20 and do not see a microswitch listed. My new question now, where is micro switch located, in icemaker unit or are you referring to the on/off infrared on the right side of freezer? Thanks, Will
If the icemaker is still in the refrig ,(easily removed with 1 screw ) pour about 2/3 cup of water into it . Also check the black fill hose which is above the icemaker fill cup , to see if it is frozen closed . If the icemaker dumps the cubes , and doesn't refill with water , replace the water inlet valve behind the refrig . If it doesnt dump the ice , replace the icemaker . My parts site is down , or I would give you part numbers for the water inlet valve and the complete icemaker .
The laser light should flash 2 times , pause , flash 2 times etc , if working correctly . If the laser light is not on , then the icemaker is in the harvest mode . If it stays off , icemaker is bad . If you close the flap on the left side of the freezer , the light should go off , until you release the flap . If these factors are ok , then the optics are ok .
