    Do you hear any humming clicking noises? Is there ice built up on the back freezer wall? Is the fan running in the freezer?

Whirlpool side byside refrigerator ice maker not working


Make sure freezer temp is 10 degrees or less. Is the water solenoid filling the tray? If there is ice in the tray perhaps the tray heating element is open.

Easiest fix is to replace the unit with a new one - cost about 40 bucks on ebay.

Whirlpool mod#ED5FHEXNB00 isn't making ice


Freezer temp has to be below 10 degrees for ice maker to work. Also check to see if water/ice is in the tray. If no ice in tray then the water solenoid valve is not feeding the unit. If ice in tray then the heater is not working to melt the ice a bit so it can be scooped out into the ice tray. And make sure the feeler arm is down into the ice tray bin - if not, ice maker is shut off.

Refrig door was not completely shut fof about 24 hrs temp was 50. Makes a loud noise when running and about 8 hrs after discovery has only gone to 46 degree


Listen to sound where is it coming from bottom back? Or inside near back wall . noise could be ice on or around evaporator fan if you can unplug for 12 hours leave doors open this will melt ice . if it is ice that will fix it.

Ice Melting towards the front of the ice hopper


Check that the fan motor wiring has not been disturbed. If the freezer fan is not working, the fridge will generally start cooling but due to poor air circulation , it will stay colder at the back but will get warmer at the front hence causing the ice to melt. The usual temp for a food compartment is around 4 degrees. The freezer should be -18 degrees celcius.

Water doesn't fill the ice maker trays


Most ice makers need to be at 8 to 13 degrees to make ice. If you had to defrost coil, then it's a defrost issue. Could be timer, bi-metal our heater.

Ice maker wont make ice


Is water getting into the ice tray of maker? If not check for the water solenoid's proper operation. Is freezer temp at least 10 degrees or less? If not, the ice maker will not work. If ice in tray then perhaps the heater element is not working to melt it a tad ans allow the fingers to pudh the ice out and into the tray.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Freezer is cold, has ice on bottom. Frig side is constant 50 degrees. It is constantly running also.


the defrost has melted the ice,now the drain tray is plugged and needs a wire run down from the drain in the freezer to the condenser pan so it can evaporate,as this fools the temp thermostat trying to cool the refrige compartment to keep trying to cool the unitif theres water dripping into the fridge rom the freezer this is a good indicator of this problem
