Whirlpool Gold GD5SHAXKT02 SM0356525,type 25SSA

We cut off the water supply to the refrigerator while we were on vacation. We turned the water supply back on when we returned, water comes out of the door but the ice maker will not make ice or call for the water. Is the line possibly frozen to the ice maker and if so how do we thaw?

    Water comes from the door but no ice is produced nor is there any water in the ice tray. Line doesn't appear to be frozen.

    Haven't really had time to trouble shoot yet.

Hi. I have a Whirlpool sise by side gold

Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Whirlpool Gold refrigerator water leaking

If it's flooding, it's NOT the drain pan. It's probably the water valve has gotten stuck in the open position. Hope this helps!

Type 25ssa , sounds like the fan motor , where do i get a replacement fan

You should be able to get one at any appliance parts supply house. They carry many in stock, and your motor will likely be there, as Whirlpool is a commonly carried replaement part.

Water dispensing too slow.

The water filter might need changing. Make sure the water supply is completely on and has good pressure.

Freezer frozen fridge not

you will need a multimeter. check continuity thro defrost heater and thermal fuse in series with it. if it is a electro-mechanical timer to control defrost, then this is the most common fault. if controlled electronically and heater and thermal fuse are ok, then points to a module fault.
also if wiring is plug and socket, check these are ok

Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator

When this area gets very hot, it's usually because of inadequate air flow across the condenser coils under the refrigerator. Check to see if the condenser fan has stopped blowing underneath. Remove any obstructions or replace the fan motor if it has stopped. Also clean any accumulation of dust from the coils. The refrigerant line runs down the divider at the front of the unit to warm it slightly and prevent condensation and/or frost there, but it should not be noticeably hot.
