Question about Refrigerators

2 Answers

I have a Model#ED5VHGXML10 Whirlpool side by side refridge. I took the Ice tray out and dumped it into my cooler and replaced the tray and the ice never produced again. Every now and then, I can hear water but no ice. This has been a problem for about 10 months and my fridge is only a little or two yrs old. I also unplugged it over night but still no ice. What do you recommend?

    Exactly the same thing happened to me. I filled a cooler from the ice tray, went on a 4 day trip, and the ice maker has not worked since.

Check to see that the fill tube going into the icemaker is not frozen, if so thaw it out with a hair dryer and you should be in buisness

Whirlpool ED5VHGXML10. ice maker not working. Water not filling


If you look in the freezer there is a wire rod that goes from the ice tray to the bucket that the ice dumps into. As the level of the ice gets higher it pushes up on this wire rod to shut off the ice making operation. When the level of the ice drops the wire rod is suppose to drop and the ice making operation is suppose to resume. However a lot of times this wire rod sticks in the up position when the ice level drops. You just need to pull down on the wire rod. Try that, I think you will find that this is your problem. Please let me know if that worked for you. Thank you.

Side by Side refrig. ice maker has water in tray but does not dispense ice.


Check to see if the coils under refridge are clean . If they are , replace the icemaker . An icemaker has to be 5 degrees to dump the cubes . Dirty coils can raise the temperature to 6 or even higher , therfore the icemaker will make ice , but not dump them .

Whirlpool side by side (106.56692501). Refrig was not cooling but freezer is. Freezer is slowly heating up though. Unit is still running. It just isn't blowing air into the refrigerator.


You have ice in freezer fins. You need to remove back panel inside of freezer, melt all the ice replace panel, plug refridge back in. The ice causes bad airflow to the refridge side, causing to heat up.

Ice maker not dumping as frequently and cubes freezing one large chunk


The first thing I would check is the cleanliness of the condenser coil under the fridge. Make sure the fan under there is running, and that the coil is clear of dust. The ice maker requires 15 degrees for a period of time before it will make ice and dump. If the temp in the freezer is colder than this, then it is likely the ice maker needs replaced. They can be replaced fairly easily with just a couple tools. (1/4" nut driver and a flat screw driver). There is a plug where it plugs into the freezer side wall, and a bent tube that supplies water to the tray. If not sure what to do, have a service tech look at it.

Ice maker jambed-now no water


The ice maker must be re-primed with water to sense frozen ice in the tray, dump, and refill. Use a cup or glass to manually pour the water into the tray just below the top of the blades. It should freeze, dump, and refill.

Ice maker not making ice


Does the tray get water? Is your water filter plugged? Does it cycle the tray to dump ice like it has ice in it?
