Icemaker is not making ice and the refrigerator is not getting cold

Push the white paddle in three times slowly within 15 seconds. Then wait 2 minutes. You should see the ice maker start to cycle. If the ice maker doesn't cycle, replace the ice maker. If you need a new ice maker, you can go to the link below

Water leak on back wall of my freezer and a hell of noise from my icemaker when on

Water leak and noise are due to wrong temp setting or malfunction of defrost cycking.Keep temp setting between 3 and 5 degree centigrade. Due to over frosting, the freezer fan fan hits over the ice and working to cool fridge compartment.And also check defrost timer, and heaterworking properly to defrost in time. And if your ice maker is making sound, due to:
  • You will hear a buzzing sound when the water valve opens to fill the water reservoir for each cycle.
  • Rattling noises may come from the flow of the refrigerant or water line. Items stored on top of the ice maker can also make noises.
  • The high-efficiency compressor may make a pulsating or high-pitched sound.
  • Water running over the evaporator plate may make a splashing sound.
  • Water running from the evaporator plate to the water reservoir may make a splashing sound.
  • As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your ice maker.
  • You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.
  • During the harvest cycle, you may hear a "thud" when the ice sheet slides from the evaporator onto the cutter grid.
  • When you first start the ice maker, you may hear water running continuously. The ice maker is programmed to run a rinse cycle before it begins to make ice.
Hope, it's helpful>

Found no manual for GD5S fridge, ice machine quit working

Generally you can get an ice maker from Best Buy that fits your Fridge. I did and it works great.

Otherwise, check your water line, power source and listen to the fridge while it's running during a cooling cycle, if it makes a lot of clicking noises you'll need to replace your ice maker.

This isn't an easy answer either, my experiences have been many with multiple makes and models!

Whirlpool side by side ice maker not making ice

The first thing I would check is water through the door. If pressure is low replace the saddle valve that taps into the water line. If you have strong pressure then you can remove the front panel of the icemaker and take a piece of wire and strip it at both ends. Stick it into the T and H holes on the ice maker. This will put it into harvest mode. Leave the wire in the unit until you hear a click then remove (about 15 secs) If the rake cycles all the way around without filling then you probably have a water supply issue (inlet or solenoid valve) Also check your fill tube and make sure its not frozen. If the fill tube is frozen remove it and clear it and replace your saddle valve.

Good luck. Hope this helped _MJ_

Whirlpool side/side. 3yrs old from Lowes. Something electrical tries to come on about every 30 seconds - 1 min. Hums for about 10 - 15 seconds and then stops. Freezer started not keeping everything frozen...

There is a relay overload on the compressor that makes a noise similar to what you are describing when the compressor does not start. Sometimes the electrical parts can be replaced, the rest the compressor is bad and needs replacement.

The other less likely possibility is that the ice maker is not hooked up, the arm got put down and the ice maker is cycling causing its heating element to run and the noise from the water valve.

If you pull off the back panel behind unit you should get some idea where noise is coming from

Whirlpool Side by Side Fridge Not Cooling

Here's the sequence: First, the unit must be ice free. This happens after power down for about 2 days. If the compressor is clicking, power off for 15 minutes. While waiting....

Clean the condenser coils.

If a mechanical thermostat, does it click when you turn it from off?

Locate compressor in back of unit. Find largest pipe. Power on.

Pipe should frost over for about a minute and then either dry out or form ice on it. If frost stays, you need refrigerant.

If compressor is not running, it could be thermostat, defrost timer (find this little gem in the back of the refrigerator and turn the stub shaft about 1/3 way around...does this change anything?) If the timer is bad...replace it.

Compressors generally don't fail from long run cycles.

hope all this gets you somewhere.

Refrigerator makes lot of noise

titu, can you be more specific on what kind of noise you're hearing. If it's a squealing noise I would suspect either the evaporator or condensor fan. See if you can isolate where it's coming from. back.
