Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

1 Answer

My ice maker ceased working. Yesterday when I opened the freezer the contents were covered with ice. I emptied the ice container which was blocked, I guess we don't use enough ice. This morning it has not made any ice at all, none in the ice maker and none in the container. The model # is GS6NBEXRTOI and the serial # is ST 1249709

The ice door will not open like it used to. Now I have to reach in with my fingers to open it to get ice through the door.


Good Morning Misty, thank you for your post!

It is a good idea to clean the ice dispenser and ice container if the ice dispenser sticks or before contacting an experiencing technician to assist further.

1. First, stop ice production by lifting the wire signal arm to the "up" or OFF position (side-mounted) or the ice maker's On/Off power switch turned Off-set to the "O" position (rear-mounted).


2. Remove ice container by lifting up and out. Empty and carefully clean the container with mild detergent. Rinse with clear water. Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners. Allow ice container to dry completely before replacing in the freezer.


3. Remove ice chips and clean the shelf and chute that supports the ice container.


4. Replace the ice container. Lower the wire signal arm on the ice maker to the "down" or ON position (side-mounted) or the ice maker's On/Off power switch is turned On-set to the "I" position. (rear-mounted) and the ice maker will resume production.


I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way.

The freezer dood was open about 1 inch and the freezer thawout and the fan is very load


Just unplug the unit. Remove the freezer contents and direct a fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. Clean up the water mess and return it to service. It will be fine.

You have an ice block on the evaporator from the door being open. The can is contacting that ice block. As soon as you do a manual defrost; the ice will be gone and the noise will cease.

I lost the instructions for the Baskin Robins ice cream maker. Are there some available online?


General Ice Cream Maker Instructions... This should give you the general idea on how to use any ice cream maker. Typically, the ice cream straight out of the maker will be soft so the ice cream typically goes into the freezer to "set"/harden the ice cream.

The ice cream maker should have a container inside of the larger outer container. The ice cream mixture goes into the inner container and the outer container holds the ice-salt mixture.
1. Prepare your ice cream mixture and chill.
2. Pour the chilled mixture into the inner container about 3/4 fulls.
3. Insert the Mixing paddle and cover the inner container
4. Turn on motor and while it's running, add 2 inches of ice on the bottom of the bucket. Sprinkle about 1/4 cup salt over ice. Continue layering ice and salt until the ice level reaches the top of the rotating ice cream can.
5. As the ice cream maker runs, add more ice and salt to ensure the ice level is above the mixture level in the inner container.
6. In about 20 to 40 minutes, the ice cream maker should stop churning.
7. Remove the lid and pack down ice cream in the can.
8. Cover and place ice cream can in freezer for several hours to harden. http://www.epinions.com/review/Baskin_Robbins_Ice_Cream_Maker/content_25404149380 The instructions are on the "mix" packs, all you need is the half & half, rock salt and a freezer. Freeze the canister, insert the canister into the receiver, add the mix and the half & half (on the pack), cap it add the ice around the canister, add the salt over the ice, turn on the machine and stand back.

The fridge is all working ok the freezer is all working ok but the ice maker is not working i have removed the tube that goes to the water part at the back and blew down it an it is not blocked


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

First off check the freezer door switch for operation. Depress the plunger and make sure the light goes off when the door switch plunger is depressed. Ligt stays on = bad door switch / no ice production as the door switch provides power to the ice-maker when the door is closed.

Here is a link to the steps on how to troubleshoot an ice-maker.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34

Let me just add that many ice-maker related problems are due to the freezer temp rising above 16 deg F. The freezer starts warming up due to ice build up on the evaporator coils and then the internal air-flow is blocked by the ice build up causing the temps to rise. Look closely at the back of the unit for any signs of ice build up.
If you see ice build up......
1. Unplug the unit
2. Remove the freezer contents
3. Place a fan directing air into the freezer for just over 2 hours. (Water mess!)
4. Clean up the excess water and restart the unit. (Add freezer content)
5. After 8 - 10 hours check for ice production.

If after doing the above you have ice production then most likely you have an automatic defrosting problem.

If it still does not make ice, the steps in the link above will isolate what has failed in the ice-maker.

Before testing the ice-maker using the steps in the link.. I recommend you peform a manual defrost with a fan. If 8 - 10 hours after the manual defrrost you do not have ice production,, use the link and troubleshoot the ice maker.

We accidentally left the freezer door just barely open overnight. The freezer started to thaw somewhat, but we caught the problem before anything had to be thrown out. In other words, there wasn't a lot...


yes ice formed in the bottom of the ice bin locking the auger from turning to dispense ice. Defrost the ice bin and wipe clear of any left over water from the melt.

Model 106.57789704 - ice wont release into door bin


This probably is not what you wanted to hear but... I recommend you to the human manual defrost method to free things up as a result of the ice that built up post power failure. That somewhat messy method being:

1. Unplug the unit.
2. Remove Freezer contents (You do not need to empty fresh food contents)
3. Place a fan blowing into the freezer section for around 2 hours. (Messy part so be ready to tend to the drips with rags & mop)

AFTER 2 HOURS
4. Take a rag or sponge and remove most of the water out of the ice maker as best as you can after the manual defrost.
5. Completely empty the ice bin of all ice or water paying particular attention to the auger making sure there is no ice at all in the auger.
6. Plug in the unit.
7. Reload Freezer contents.

This should get things back to normal. If not there is much more that can be attempted. At this time I really believe that the above procedures will normalize your unit. If and when you need more assistance just respond here I and I will gladly assist you.

Ice maker not working


Usually when this happens the water line in the freezer is frozen. If this is the case, defrosting the freezer should free it up and all will work again.
