Good day,
There are a few problems that can cause an ice maker to quit. First, it's important that the freezer be at normal operating temperature. If it warms above 14 degrees, the ice maker is designed to lock out completely.
If the freezer temp has remained normal then follow thru with these steps. It will get you there.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

when you look at this icemaker there are 2 sets of strippers 1 stationary the other moves. teh one that moves is normally at 2 o'clock position facing the front cover of icemaker. if these teeth are in anyother position for longer than 10-20 minutes then you most likely have a bad motor module on the icemaker, this is a very easy repair you will need partnumber 8201515 from whirlpool or local appliance supply house. thx peyton

My ice box stopped making ice


The most likely cause is the water solenoid behind the fridge. Take an ohm meter and test across the two terminals and it should NOT ohm out (beep). If it does not ohm out I would replace the P.C. Board kit, emitter & receiver icemaker control.
