Ice maker is making ice but not dropping into bin. i can dump in myself and it re fills water, but the cubes just stay in the maker and wont alow the next batch to be made.


Your trouble can be in the icemaker. An internal thermostat closes to begin the ice harvest cycle. A motor drives the ejector blades, and a heater releases the cubes from the mold. None of this will happen if the electronic sender and receiver are faulty. This device is to stop the ice production when the bin is full. How are you manually dumping ise into the bin?

"bin full" (full of somethin')


Thank you for following up with me. The machine works fine now. I should not have sent my message under the category of "similar problem" since I had already fixed it. My solution was simply to gently pull the sender and receiver units out, give them a good cleaning, and put them back in. Each unit looks like 2 LEDs attached to the end of a black plastic holder about 4" long. There were no screws to deal with. I just wiggled the plastic holders out, then back in. They are located (in the case of my machine) at the forward and rear ends of the narrow drop slot which leads into the ice holding bin below (as if to aim a beam across the length of the slot. A hand will have to be inserted an inch or two up into the drop slot to feel them along the wall of the slot.

Ice maker not making ice


Most likely a problem with the main ice making unit itself. I bought mine at ebay for $49 including shipping. Very simple to replace. You just swap the wiring harness and bottom plate. Takes about 20 minutes to do.
Make sure you do the IR led test. If you think you IR sender and receiver are bad to, $57 on ebay for the set. Most likely not your water solenoid in the lower back of frig (it gets the signal to turn on from the receiver module of the IR board.
Probably not your water filter (cuz the front water dispenser still probably works right?)
And probably not a clogged or frozen line.
Good luck. When it doubt, trust ebay!

Ice maker is not getting water to make ice


The most likely cause is the green 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. You can buy the P. C. boards and a new water inlet valve kit with new quick connections at www.repairclinic.com or www.appliancepartspros.com Both sites are very helpful and most likely have these parts in stock.

Whirlpool Gs5shaxnb02 Ice maker


is there water in the ice trays?if not try pushing the test button normally underneath the unit. possibly it will initiate a reset and start working. sometimes a limit is not activated when it should be.

Whirlpool Gs5shaxnb02 Ice maker


the most comon problem is the ice machine in the freezer actuates at low teperatures. actuation is when the unit goes into harvest the ice. if your freezer is not aciving low enough temperature the ice machine stops working ' check to ensure the condensor under the fridge is not pluged with dust .Also make shure there is adiquit air flow around the ice machine. hope this helped someone .
