Whirlpool side by side ice maker not working

Up until early December's two day power outage it was fine.
Now it isn't working and I don't see a reset button.
Any ideas?
Thank you!

    The rest of the unit is running.

    I just flipped the breaker anyway and think I may have initiated some compressor action by doing so. We'll see.

    No indication of fried wires or burnt contact are present.

    Thanks and I'll send updates as they develop.

    This still didn't help but thank you for the effort.

Next you will want to check your condenser fan motor and make sure it is running. It cools the compressor. Check it to make sure it is running okay. If it isn't replace it. If it is you could have a burnt compressor relay or overload. Check those also.

If your refer is running during a what is called a brown out it can burn the compressor windings. If you are not getting anything check the breaker first. Is the unit running at all? Check your terminal block under the refer where the power cord comes in and check for a burnt contact. After those are checked we can go from there.

HI, I have a Whirlpool Side-By-Side Refrigerator model ED25PQXW01 and the ice maker isn't working, how do I fix it??


Hi

Check to see that the refrigerator has power and is working. Reset or replace the fuse or circuit breaker in the house if needed, especially if a power outage has recently occurred. Make sure the water valve is connected to the refrigerator and is fully turned on. Ensure that the ice maker is turned on. Some Whirlpool refrigerator models have a switch located above the ice bin; some models have an arm that should be raised up to turn the ice maker on. The arm is also located above the ice bin. Clear away any ice cubes that may have gotten jammed in the ice maker, bin or dispenser that may be preventing ice cubes from moving as expected in the system. Use a plastic utensil to clear away any obstructions. Contact an authorized service center for assistance if the above steps do not fix the issue.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Automatic ice maker quite working after 7 day power outage


Check to see if the power cable is ok. If your unit has a fuse, you may need to replace that. Looks like the power outage might have fuzzed up the power circitry. If neither of the above works, then you may need to get the machine serviced.
