Your refrigerator temperature should be between 35-40 degrees F, the freezer should be 0-8 degrees F. Both of the control settings should be in the middle, so if its on a scale of 1-9, 5 is middle, if its on a scale of A-J, E or F would be the middle, if its a temperature setting, 37 and 0 is normal setting.

We changed the filter for the water, now it will not dispense water, but the ice maker still works.


Hello nott225 - The issue sounds like it might be related to the temperature in the freezer. What is it set to? Make sure that the temperature is approximately around 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly. If it is properly set, then consult a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues like a faulty ice maker valve or even the ice maker itself.

No water from water dispenser in Whirlpool et1fhtxmq03 refrig.


Most likely the water control valve on the back of the refrigerator. One side controls the water to ice maker and the other side sends water to the water dispenser. This is providing the water didn't freeze during the very low temperature setting set before you turned it back dow. If you can locate the model number I will be able to get the part number for the water control valve. There is a way to test it with an OHM meter, just let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker sprays water...


sounds like the inlet part on the ice maker is froze over or not lined up in the opening of it right or a possibilty that the ice maker is leaking out the water if that is the case the ice maker needs replaced

Icemaker won't dispense whole cubes, only chopped ice


Hello chitwnchk1
Welcome to Fixya,

You said,It chops ice when dispensing but won't just dispense whole cubes.
Any suggestions on how to fix it?

1. If the cubes dispense, but not whole cubes, there is not a enough water pressure.
2. r there is a restriction in the water line to the ice maker.
3. OR the fridge may not be level.
4. Is there a water filter and has it been Changed in the past 6 months?


Here are 4 reasons mentioned in the repair manual.

Shutoff arm in the off position

Ensure the shutoff arm is down and not in the raised position. If in the raised the position, the ice maker is in the off position and will not cycle.

Faulty Harvest Thermostat

There is a thermostat inside the ice maker that will close when the ice maker mold reaches the proper temperature. If the thermostat is not closing, the ice maker will not cycle.

Freezer To Warm
The ice maker will not cycle if the temperature in the freezer in not below 12 degrees. Ensure proper temperature in freezer.


No water getting to ice maker
The water inlet valve is the control device that allows water to enter the ice maker. It is energized during the last 5-8 seconds of the harvest cycle. During this 5 to 8 second period, there should be 110v across the two wires connected to the valve . If there is power supplied to the valve and the valve does not open to allow water to flow, the valve is defective.

However, if power is being supplied to the valve and water is flowing through it freely, it could be that you water supply line or inlet tube have frozen solid. These can be thawed with warm water or a hair dryer.

Let me know how it goes and what you found!
Thank You , Huuuum
