Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker
Appears the water is not making it into the ice machine but running down the back wall of freezer and into ice bucket. It is all a sheet of ice back there. The supply tube is frozen so the ice sheet is not growing.
I have unplugged the refrigerator to thaw everything. Need advice if ice maker can be fixed or need to get a new one.
The refrigerator is over 20 yrs. old. Whirlpool model ET22MKXPNRO, serial # S60217927.

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.

This is almost always due to a faulty shutoff valve. The valve is at the back, where the water line connects to the refrigerator. Turn off the water supply, remove the water line with a wrench. You should be able to take out the valve with a few screws and by removing one or two wiring clips and the plastic line on the other side leading to the fridge. A new one costs about $60 - $80 at a appliance parts store. Bring the old one with you, and the refrig. model number, and make sure the new one looks the same as the old.
The problem stems from the valve continuing to leak a bit of water to the icemaker after it fills the tray and shuts off. This trickle of water freezes and blocks the line, so matter how many times you defrost it, it will just happen again.

It may be just the water control valve on back of refrigerator. Put tap water in ice maker and lower lever for on. After ice is made, does it drop to tray? At this time when empty is the time the control valve is asked for water. The problem could be in valve on back or the inside ice maker itself. If you can try a few test with me I will help you locate the problem. Let me know what you find as I go through this with you. Sea Breeze
