The inlet tube is hitting the ice shield and missing the opening.Remove the ice maker just enough to align the tube into the hole in the shield.

My ice maker is not working on my gs5 sha side by side refrigerator freezer, it is spraying water everywhere inside the freezer, any help?


Make sure the water is coming from the ice maker by using additional light to spot the source of the leak then you possibly have a defective water fill valve leaking water slowly and causing water to freeze where water exits the tube into the ice maker. Once there is ice there and the ice maker calls for water the water either spews all over everything or is blocked from filling the ice maker cube slots altogether.

I have a whirlpool gold and the ice maker keeps overflowing water and freezes all over the freezer-**** the water will not shut off?


That is almost correct, but first you need to make sure that the ice maker itself is ok. Look into it and feel it with your hand, if any of the greyish green teflon coating is chipped, cracked, or peeling, the ice maker will need to be replaced. If not, then you need a new water inlet valve assembly. You can order this part at, Reliable Parts, using your model number. For guided instruction on how to perform your repair, please reply.

Thanks, Repairman45

Stopped making ice


Hi reach up inside the tray where the ice is made and check to see if you feel any ice. If you feel ice the ice maker is bad. If you feel no ice and the tray is empty then your problem is either with the water line being blocked with ice or the inlet valve is bad. Pull the ice maker line out of the valve and blow into it, if you can blow air through the line then the valve is bad. If you can't blow air into the line then it's blocked with ice. Locate the ice blockage and thaw it with a hairdryer. Mike

Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator (GS5SHAXNLOO) Ice maker not running, some ice in maker melted together


I have the same model. This has happened to me several times (usually when the door was kept ajar without notice).
Simply open the door, take a common hairdryer and blow at high speed (hottest also) all around the area of where you can feel the ice in the tray, but hasn't dumped yet. It will usually take about 5-8 minutes of consistently moving back and forth around that area. What has happened is the lines bringing water to the trays have frozen over. When you "thaw" them out, the ice made will dump in about 45 minutes. When you hear the ice fall, you will know it's in working order again. I have NOT heard this is a "flawed" icemaker, only that it is hypersensitive to freezing lines when a door is left ajar. In your case, to prevent this from happening again. If you shut the icemaker off again, make SURE you turn off the source of the water feed BEFORE you turn off the ice maker. By doing this, the lines will empty as it makes it's last tray of water. Try that - very confident it will fix your problem!

The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.


Hello jitkagardner,
Welcome


You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

How old is the fridge?
When have you last changed the water filter.
Should be down below at the front grille!
Try these tasks!

If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice
Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
• Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
• Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
• New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
• Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer
compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not
close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely."
• Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
• Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
• Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and
operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may
be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it
correctly.
• Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.

Let me know how it goes!
