Whirlpool undercounter ice maker trips breaker

If it trips the breaker either the wiring to the ice maker is shorted or the ice maker itself is shorted, do not continue to use it, there is afire hazard if you keep resetting the breaker.

Cutter grid is not getting hot

I need you to look around your ice maker for a package containing a wiring diagram. I have information related to the Whirlpool 15 inch and 18 inch ice makers but for some reason GE did not publish the repair manual for your model. I want you to check the voltage going into the WR62X10015 Transformer

You should be getting at least 120 volts ac. Then test the voltage coming out of the transformer. What is the voltage coming out of the
WR62X10015 Transformer? Check the control board area for a fuse that goes to the
WR62X10015 Transformer
Check for loose connections going to the grid or broken wires on the grid itself. WR29X10073 Cutting Grid Assembly
Here is a link to the GE Monogram Technical Data
The Whirlpool and the GE Monogram Ice Machines are basically the same thing other than part numbers so I am linking to the Click Here=> Whirlpool 15 inch and 18 inch Ice Machine Service Manual I will be here to answer your questions so please let me know should you have questions, More information can be found
HERE Thanks Sea Breeze

Ive just put a new grid cutter in my whirlpool ice maker but it is not heatinh up to cut the ice sheets into cubes. Any ideas what to do next?

Yes the next step is to check the voltage on the secondary side of the grid transformer found in the photo on page 30 of the=> 15 and 18 inch Whirlpool Ice Maker Service Manual

GI15NFLXS Grid Transformer

I hope the manual is a big help in resolving the ice cutting problem and please ask should you have any questions. The secondary side of the transformer should be showing a least 8.5 volts ac. Let me know if you are able to find the problem, Thanks Sea Breeze
The 18 inch ice maker takes the same grid transformer as the 15 inch model.

The Ice is not sliding out completely over grid

Limescale on the plate sticks to the ice. Descale with proprietary descaler and make sure the plate is scrupulously clean. If the timer is adjustable, give it an extra minute harvest time, and make sure condenser is clean as a whistle! Also check icemaker is level so block slides down onto cutting grid easily

Have kitchenaid undercounter ice maker, came with the house i bought a year ago. the problem is the water freezes in the resevoir. i have replaced the circulating pump, the thermistor, some sensor,...

on the right side of the ice bin and above the cutter grid are 2 sensor plugs, unplug the one towards the rear of the machine (usually has light brown w/red striped wires). if this does not fix the problem then replace the main control board and the transformer. Also the water doesn't go to the grid, it rolls across the evaporator, freezes a slab of ice that then slides down to the cutter grid. the cutter grid should be somewhat warm, it is what cuts the ice into the little squares. I've worked on these machines for around 7 years now and have only seen this problem once, this should fixya

I have a viking undercounter ice maker Model VUIM 150 DRSS. The ice maker makes a heet of ies and then it looks like it "slides down" to a grid of wires which the weight of the ice causes it to split into...

The grid of wires (i.e. cutting grid) is supposed to be powered at the start of the "harvest cycle" I believe that unit has a 12 VAC transformer to power the grid. Either the grid has a broken wire, the transformer is bad or something is not letting power travel from the transformer to the grid (like a loose wire). If you have a multimeter you can test the grid for proper resistance which should be 5.0 to 5.9 ohms. Make sure you take the proper precautions to disconnect power from the unit before disconnecting the cutting grid to test it. I believe it is plugged into a recepticle on the side of the unit. If the grid checks out ok, you can test the recepticle for should have power up to 35 minutes after the start of a harvest cycle. If you shut off the water supply and pull the reservoir plug, you can turn on the ice maker and have it "dry cycle" to test it's functions. It should be able to pull the evaporator plate (the cold plate) down to harvest temperature (11 degress F) in less than five minutes when there is no water flowing accross it. I hope this helps.

Ice jams in KUIS18NNJB Kitchenaid under counter ice maker

There are 2 sets of wires on the cutting grid that are perpendicular to each other. Electrical current passing through the wires creates heat that melts the ice. The first set cuts one direction, then the ice strips drop onto the second set that cuts the strips into cubes. Remove the cutter grid and check if the wires are broken. If they are, electrical current can't pass through the wires, so no heat. Restringing kits are available to fix this. If the wires aren't broken, you'll need a voltmeter to see if current is reaching the wires. If it isn't, then the transformer has likely failed.
