SOURCE: ice maker makes very little ice

You can't adjust it to make ice faster.  It should make 8 cubes about every two hours.  After it fills look and see how many cube molds are filled with water.  It may be that the tray is not getting full.  If it isn't filling the whole tray then you have a low water pressure to the fridge issue.  The most common problem I see is people use a self-piercing saddle valve on the water line and they get plugged and this drops the water pressure to the fridge.  If you have a self-piercing valve it needs to be changed to a drill type saddle valve.  If the saddle valve is the correct one and the tray doesn't fill all the way then replace the water valve on the fridge.  Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: whirlpool ed22rf cools poorly on non freezer side.

Check condenser for dirt or dust, check back wall of freezer section for frost, if you find frost there is a defrost problem. Frost buildup on the surface of the back wall indicates that the coil inside the back wall is frozen over. Inside the back wall on the coil are heaters which the timer energizes to defrost at certain intervals. These heaters could have an open circuit, the defrost thermostat could be open, or the timer could be malfunctioning. To test the timer manually you can rotate the clutch head screw clockwise untill you hear one click. The heaters should come on and defrost for 18-22 minutes. The refrigerator should return to cooling after that time. If it does not automatically restart turn the screw once more to a second click and it should start.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Side by Side Ice Maker Not Making Ice

If you have the type of ice maker that has an ice bin on the freezer door, then there are instructions available at www.AnyoneCanFixIt.com to fix the ice maker problem. They also sell the part that is sometimes required to repair this common problem on the ice maker. The problem is notorious on these refrigerators that were made around 2004 and later. The ice maker will usually go out within 1-2 years. They have redesigned a part to eliminate the problem.

SOURCE: ICE MAKER QUIT MAKING ICE ON MY WHIRLPOOL FRIDGE

I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.

SOURCE: ICE MAKER WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY SHUT OFF

On the ice makers on refridgerators unless the ice in the bucket is high enough to raise the arm on the icemaker it will not shut off. Most people lift the arm up when they see the bucket full. I have the side by side Whirlpool model and on mine if I don't raise the arm the ice will fall out the bucket before it will raise the arm high enough.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold Side by Side Ice maker not making ice.

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.

Make sure you actually turn the icemaker on, there is a arm that you have to trip in side that will activate the solenoid that make water enter the ice marker. Also keep in mind that the air in the line has to work out so give it 24 hours to make it to the ice maker. You should see the hose in the back of the frig, that runs from the solenoid to the ice maker. Also check the ice maker itself to make sure it is plugged in completely. Good luck

Icemaker not making ice cubes.


Amana SXD22S2W refrigerators are made by Whirlpool and what you have happening is common with a couple possibilities. Most likely the W10245167 Water Inlet Valve is not shutting off after the fill time of about 7.5 seconds. If this is happening the water will slowly fill the ice maker tray above the lever that it should and causes the ice to connect together on the top thus not allowing the cubes to be harvested because they are basically welded together as a whole piece. And the other possibility is the ice maker itself is needing an adjustment of the water flow time. Below I will post a Icemaker Repair video telling how to adjust the time and other things to look for. This is possible but most times not always the case. Adjusting the flow time is delicate and a little change can cause too much or not enough water. Lets watch the icemaker a little closer and see if there is ice freezing up in the fill tube behind the ice maker. You have seen the leaky faucets before and an old W10245167 Water Inlet Valve can do just that making a mess inside your freezer and ice maker if leaking. Here is a Whirlpool Ice Maker Troubleshooting PDF You can find this info on this page HERE You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these documents. The Adobe Acrobat Reader is available as a free download. I will be here should you have any questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

The ice maker has stopped making ice. The red light is flashing (in the freezer. Part ot technician?


Hi, The blinking red light is just a sensor that shuts down the ice maker when the door is open so that it will not dump. This should have no effect on why the ice maker is not working unless the little door that blocks the beam does not return when the door is shut again...
Here is a tip that I wrote about the reasons why ice makers do not work.

When the water is shut off by the lever, it is shut off at bottom of fridge. When you shut it off, it is allthe way to the tray as it gave water permission to travel and what was left filled the line. Unplug fridge for an hour. Should be fine

Ice maker making little ice/Leaking water on floor.


The ice trays bust be cleaned to prevent calcium build up. This will prevent the ice from froming in trays.
The overflow could be caused by the freezer not being level, or by the water fill timer not shutting of the incoming water. This will keep the water temp. too high to freeze the water. Also check the fill valve for sepage.

Ice maker makes very little Ice and the cubes are small.


The amount of ice is not dependent upon water flow, well as long as you do have flow, when enough water is in the maker it will shut off the supply.....ice quantity is dependent upon the length of the freezing cycle, the shorter the cycle the more harvests per hour. Adjust the timer so that you get complete freezing, but just barely

Stop making ice


check if there is ice in the ice maker, see if there is water coming in to the ice maker. maybe a water problem or a solenoid problem...if there is no ice in the ice maker...try to pour manually a cup of water on the ice maker and empty the ice bin so that you can observe if the ice maker is working if there would be ice in the bin after an hour. if there is ice, then a water problem is most likely to look at. i hope the freezer is working perfectly..
