Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

Open Question

Whirlpool Gold, Model #GI7FVCXWY01, Serial #KY4241799 Purchased in April 2010 This appliance is UNDER WARRANTY Ice maker stopped working; was serviced yesterday. It made a small amount of ice right away but stopped after technician left. Called for a re-visit this morning, but the service can't take place until Tuesday, 11/16. In the meantime, have noticed that the fresh food compartment in the refrigerator is FREEZING. Raised the temperature from 38 to 40, and turned the ice maker OFF once more. Will this solve the freezing problem until Tuesday? If not, is there anything else I can do? Or do I need emergency service? I can't get through to Whirlpool or the third-party servicer, A&E Factory Service, on the 800 numbers. All I hear are fast busy signals. As this appliance is under warranty, I hope Whirlpool will assume any charges for using this help service and/or fixing the problem.

Mick...there may be any number of reasons for this. First, check for a bad door gasket. It must be clean and fit snugly around the unit. Use a piece of typing paper about 2 inches wide to pull through. It should pull with some resistance anywhere you try. If it is gappy, humidity can leak in.

Next, make sure the condenser coils are clean. Third, how cold is your freezer? Is should be about 5 degrees or so if it is kept closed for about 6 hours or more.

Is the ice maker clean and not overflowing? Many units can be removed and cleaned out.

You may have other issues...start with these.

SOURCE: Ice maker is leaking small amounts of water.

Is the amount of water to much for the tray size , you can adjust it with the small screw behind the icemaker cover . is the line entering the back of the icemaker jammed up to far causing it to spray ? Or is the icemaker or refrigerator not level

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!

your Whirlpool has lost its gas charge , you will require a refrigeration mechanic to repair or if under warranty tell them to exchange it .
