Comment regarding catriver Aug 18 post: Shorting L&V caused valve to work I believe, at least I think I heard it operate, but shorting T&H did not cause gear to move. So does that indicste a different problem? Still no ice. JimB

if you keep your hands out of the little beam slot on the paddel that is located on the left of the freezer and push it in the beam should shoot across to the reciever on the right and the light should stay on constant, that is if you have the switch on the right side turned on.
if it is turned on and the paddel is depressed and the light is still blinking the you need a beam kit part number 4389102

I have a whilpool Model # ED5FHXC001A side by side Energy Saver refridgerator. It was purchased late in 2006. It's not making and dropping ice. Any ideas what the problem may be? Thanks

You will need to replace the icemaker. The sensor that activates the heat coil in the icemaker is bad. The heat sensor allows the cubes to be released from being frozen to the ice tray. Check ebay for a new icemaker. About one third the price of manufacturer for new factory unit.

Click Here=> 4389177 Water Inlet Valve will need replaced. You mentioned the water is filling the tray OK then my focus would be on the ice maker.

Most times it is less expensive to just replace the ice maker module. Here is a helpful video that helps explain everything about the Whirlpool Ice Maker below. If you find this solution helpful please rate my solution, Thanks Sea Breeze

The problem is one of two places,
the ice maker is the reason or the dual water control valve=> 4389177
Try pouring tap water inside the ice maker if cubes are not there. Let freeze
and if ice drops into the ice bucket then the water control valve on the side
that feeds ice maker is bad. GS5SVAXVA00 Parts
List Look up in the scrollbar and go to page 17 and you will see the water
control valve listed an item 5 and item 15 is the ice maker thermostat. That or
the ice maker module are most times at fault if the water control valve for ice
maker side had 120vac connected to it water would possibly flow. I have found
that sometime if the ice maker is bad just to replace would be the best route,
Tell me how the water test goes and if someone has a multi meter or ohm meter I
will answer how to test those components, Thanks, Sea Breeze
