Question about Whirlpool 25.4 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/Thru-the-Door Ice & Water - Satina Stainless-Look

1 Answer

The ice maker has been working fine, now all a sudden it stoped working. The other night the moter that kicks the ice cubes out was making a funny clicking noise, like something was hung up in the gears. Now the water dispenser isn't filling the tray. I've got the ice maker out, should i let everything thaw out and put it back together, and see what happens ?

Good day,
Snap off front cover. If it has a white plastic gear with a SCREW in the middle, check the teeth in the gear. If stripped replace it with a new one. If it is the modular style, you'll have to replace the module or better yet the complete ice maker.
The module isn't really cost effective.

Our ED5SHAXM ice maker is intermitant. It will make ice for several weeks and then suddenly stop making ice, the water flow to the ice maker stopes and the bin empties it's final time. Then weeks later it...


Either the freezer temperature is too high or the internal thermostat inside the ice maker is faulty.
The freezer temp must be 5 degrees or less for the ice maker to work correctly.
If the freezer checks out OK you will need to replace the ice maker.
