Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Comment regarding catriver Aug 18 post: Shorting L&V caused valve to work I believe, at least I think I heard it operate, but shorting T&H did not cause gear to move. So does that indicste a different problem? Still no ice. JimB

Humm thats a good one, but I will try to help you out. First off you say the icemaker is new, so does that mean you bought the icemaker and installed it on the refrigerator. Or is the refrigerator new and it has an icemaker. If you installed the icemaker new on an older refrigerator you can have a few problems. Most likely the freezer is not getting cold enough for the icemaker to cycle on its own. Especially if you are peaking in every few minutes like I would be doing. The icemaker will start a new cycle when the temperatur hits 0 degrees. If the freezer is only getting to 5 degrees the icemaker will not cycle. In that case the problem would be with the refrigerator not the icemaker. If the freezer is getting to 0 degrees then you may want to take that icemaker back and get a replacement. Good luck and I hope I helped. firstname.lastname@example.org

I had similar problem in that the fan in the freezer that blows freezing air into freezer and over to fridge was not working. Fridge was running warm (over 40 deg and freezer up near 20) Service call around $160 with new fan.

Get me the model number. Put tap water in ice maker tray and make sure arm is down. Let it freeze. Wait and see if the ice will drop, this should allow water to come into the ice maker for another run. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have the same model. This has happened to me several times (usually when the door was kept ajar without notice).
Simply open the door, take a common hairdryer and blow at high speed (hottest also) all around the area of where you can feel the ice in the tray, but hasn't dumped yet. It will usually take about 5-8 minutes of consistently moving back and forth around that area. What has happened is the lines bringing water to the trays have frozen over. When you "thaw" them out, the ice made will dump in about 45 minutes. When you hear the ice fall, you will know it's in working order again. I have NOT heard this is a "flawed" icemaker, only that it is hypersensitive to freezing lines when a door is left ajar. In your case, to prevent this from happening again. If you shut the icemaker off again, make SURE you turn off the source of the water feed BEFORE you turn off the ice maker. By doing this, the lines will empty as it makes it's last tray of water. Try that - very confident it will fix your problem!

Whirlpool's Ice Maker Harvest Cycle
most of the information you are looking for is on the page above. I will let you begin by going to that link and saving the Whirlpool Ice Maker Troubleshooting PDF. Once you read over that material and are able to use an ohm meter we will move to the test points behind the ice makers front cover. Ice Maker have about a five year average life cycle and many times it is more cost effective if you replace the=> D7824706Q Ice Maker Assembly or click here=> D7824706Q Ice Maker Assembly In the clip below you basically have all the solutions in this one You-Tube Movie=> Ice Maker Repair I believe this is one of the better Whirlpool Ice Maker related video's and covers most all of what you need answered. I will be here to answer any questions. Checking the ice maker mold heater by testing the L and H test points (should show about 72 ohms of resistance) Testing the Ice Maker Timer L and M test points should show around 4400 ohms of resistance Motor You also can answer from the ice maker by testing just what condition your water control valve coil windings are by placing the test probes in the N and V test points where you should get between 150 and 350 ohms of resistance. I will be here to answer any questions you may have, If this solution is helpful please rate my solution, Thanks Sea Breeze
