Hi,
Follow the steps mentioned below to solve the problem:
First remove the ice bin and look inside the mold of the ice maker to see if it is full of ice. If the ice sensing arm is down ( on position) and the ice maker is full of ice, there is a failure inside the ice maker and the ice maker should be replaced.
If there is no ice in the ice maker, look at the fill tube on the rear of the ice maker. If the fill tube is frozen up the ice maker can't fill.
You can defrost the fill tube with a hair dryer.
The water valve on the rear of the refrigerator supplies water to the water dispenser and the ice maker. Since the water dispenser is working, the only line that could be blocked runs up the back of the cabinet and attaches to the fill tube for the ice maker. The water valve could be bad and not sending water to the ice maker.
If the fill tube freezes again you should replace the water valve.
Hope this helps.
Shane

Got three lights on my whirlpool super chest freezer green red and orange. Orange one you can push in and this illuminates it. what is itn for?


This is a super freeze button, it is for when you get a lot of frozen food and put it in you can push the super freeze button and it bypasses the thermostat and runs the freezer constant to freeze the food quicker.

Upright Freezer not freezing,


looks like low on freon. that causes freeze up. oddly enough they freeze up when charge is low , just the opposite of what you think they would do. you have a freon leak unfortunately. probably not accessible, and therefore not repairable. i would suggest, cut your losses and buy new. unfortunately for me and all other srevice techs, the days of affordable repair are over, you can now replace cheaper than i can fix and have a warranty and its new... good luck

Fridge not cold


I had the same problem with fridge/freezer and repair man told me NOT to use anything that has been in freezer as what is happening is that it is constantly freezing and defrosting because there is not enough gas in the system to cool the appliance. It is possible to re-gas the appliance but service engineer advised me to claim a new fridge/freezer from company which I did. Please do NOT eat anything from freezer as could make you ill.

Not enough information but  if you are refering to the compressor as the black housing below, it seems that the compressor is either seized or burnt out.
