Our Whirlpool Gold model number GSF26C5EXW00 had the same problem. The ice maker seemed to randomly work sometimes, and not other times. Sometimes if I moved my food around in the fridge, it would make the ice maker work. Anyway, two service calls later, the Whirlpool tech told us that it is a VERY common problem with this model (which is exclusive to Lowe's apparently) and that the water line just freezes on it's own. Beware! We now have water dripping down the back of our freezer (inside the freezer) and it's sizzling on something at the bottom of the freezer. I've contacted Whirlpool and told them it's a lemon. Literally 11 months old and so many problems? We're demanding that they replace our fridge with another model. I don't trust his one at all...

I'm had the same exact problem. I travel and my wife would told me the ice maker wasn't working, but when I arrived home it miraculously worked. This happened many times over the last six months. Well, I didn't travel this week for my job, and my ice maker hasn't worked the whole week. The engineering in this fridge is definitely faulty. I'm past the 1 year mark too. I'll contact Whirlpool, but can only imagine where I'll get. Buyer beware....

I also have a whirlpool gold purchased through Lowes. 3 months new and stopped making ice and dispensing water. 4 service calls later, a part was replaced. I was also told there were problems with this model. 10 months later, no longer making ice and water again. I did not buy the extended warranty.
Has anyone been able to pursuade Whirlpool to replace?

I have a Whirlpool White Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator GS6SHAXLQ03, manufactured March 2003. The ice maker creates ice and fills the "holding bin" on the interior of the door. However,...


The ice will melt during the defrost cycle. Make sure your freezer is cold enough, at least -5, preferably -10. also, if your freezer is not full of food, put some milk jugs full of water in there to take up space. This will keep the temp colder when the compressor shuts off for the defrost cycle. if there is too much empty space, there is not enough mass to stabilize the temperature and keep it cold.

Admiral side by side, the ice maker does not seem to making ice


Pull down slightly on the bottom bin lip , and pull the bin foreward . The bin has to lock in place , or it would slide foreward , each time the ice dispensor is used , causing the freezer door to be pushed open from the force .

The bin on my ice maker forms big chunks of ice


check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice, OR cause the thaw-freeze cycle resulting in chunks. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Ice maker will not dispense the ice


The auger motor and coupling in the rear may be frozen and won't turn.
Remove the ice bin.
Place a screwdriver or similar device in the forks of the auger and twist counterclockwise till it moves. The replace the ice bin and try again.
It will be difficult to move.
If that does not work. Turn off the fridge and use a hair dryer to hrat the auger gear and motor till it frees up.
