My ice maker makes a lot of noise at night I wake hearing it making ice droping sounds. I don't use a lot of ice can I turn the infrared receiving switch to off?


The noise is probably ice dropping into the pan and the normal ice maker and water valve sounds associated with making ice. Most Whirlpool models have a slide cover to "turn off" the ice maker - closing this cover fools the control into thinking the bin is full. Your owner's manual should provide greater detail on this option.

I have a Whirlpool refrig./freezer. I have no problem with the ice dropping in the bucket,but when I try to dispense it under the chute,it wil not dispense. The water works fine. This is a side side ...


Sometimes the ice will collect, melt, and freeze into a giant headache. If you have the one where you can get ice out of the holding bin inside the freezer, see if the ice bin will come apart from the rest of the dispenser. If it doesn't come easily, get as much ice out of the bin, get a wet vac ready and pour warm water on the ice. It will run through the dispenser. Once things come apart easily, you can take it over to sink and get rid of the ice blockage with warm water, let it dry, reinstall, and check to see if it works. Hope this helps.

Refrig is making a loud moaning/whirring sound. It's coming from the freezer, behind the ice bin.


Hello,


Sounds like you have a bad door switch. Depending on the age of the fridge, it might still be under warranty. If it's not, then you might be able to access the door switch yourself and pull it out & replace it.
This is common. Unplug it or turn off the circuit breaker for a full 5 minutes. Then plug-in and follow instructions. Things will be good

Good luck......

Water leaking inside refrig. and then freezing in lower bins


your drain tube is blocked with a ice dam and there is ice under the freezer floor. Removing the rear panel and floor will give you access to removing the ice and clearing the drain.

I just get a ed22pw whirlpool refrig. from a friend. the icemaker does not work so I removed the ice tray. Now we have a gas smell in the refrig.


The only gas that you could be getting from the refrigerator is freon. and if this is true it wont be cooling very long. I would make sure I have a place for the food soon. Removing the ice tray did not hurt anything. your evaperator must have sprung a leak and will half to be changed for the repair.

Kenmore icemaker


It sounds like the icemaker is making hollow cubes , and the unfrozen water in the cubes , after dumping , freezes and causes the ice shells to stick togather . This is a sign of " not enough water going into the icemaker " . Replace the water inlet valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to , on the refrig .

I replace the ice maker for my refrigerator{whhirlpool gold} but the new one do not fill the ice bin after more 24 hrs .is that normal?


The trick is to let the ice build up , close to the bottom of the icemaker . This helps cool the ice maker mold , helping keep up , due to ice usage . Also , make sure the coils under the front of the refrig are clean , this is very important . But , yes , the ice bin may only be 1/4 - 1/2 full , in 24 hours .

I have a Whirlpool refrige. side by side and the ice maker has stopped working. The infrared light keeps blinking. I have unplugged it a couple of times as well as turned the infrared off. Any advice?


The laser , is supposed to blink . This laser , tells the icemaker to stop making ice , when the bin is full . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . If it doesn't dump the cubes into the bin , the icemaker is bad . Or , if there is ice in the bin , which hasn't dumped , the icemaker is bad . If the icemaker dumps the ice ( from water pour ) , then look above the fill cup , and see if the black fill tube is frozen . If so , then replace the water valve and turn the freezer temp down slightly . It will take several days for this fill line inside freezer to thaw . If icemaker dumps , and black tube NOT frozen , replace the water valve . The valve , is where the wall water line connects to on the refrig
