Question about Whirlpool ED2FHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator
Reading your reply to another question can you offer help here please? My Whirlpool was baught as refurbished and has never made ice. I do get the repeatedy flashjing light on the infrared reciever during the optics test but I'm concerned the main water line is dry. Is this more likely to be a problem with the motor in the base of the unit than the icemaker itself? You advice would be very welcome, also is there nay way to test this?
Many thanks, Steve
Hi Steve, sounds like you have a indoor ice maker that's cycling but you are not getting any water to fill. Your ice ejector blades should be parked the the 2:00 position. Your beam should flash 2 times with a pause repeatedly. When you hold the left side lever in the light should be on steady. You want to make sure that the inlet tube that feeds the water to the ice maker is not frozen over. You can disconnect the line in the back and blow through it to see if it's clear. Or, you can take a small baster and run hot water up the inlet tube. If that's clear, the ice maker is parked right, but still no water during a cycle then I would look at the valve. If you want you can take a cheater cord and apply 120 volts directly to the valve to see if it will fill the ice maker. Be careful when doing this because you will be working with live juice here. You don't want to light up the world. Best to get a cord and put some alligator clips on it. It it doesn't fill, then there is your problem. Let me know if I can be any more help, Catriver
