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. mca0824@aol.com

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

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator (GS5SHAXNLOO) Ice maker not running, some ice in maker melted together

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!

The ice maker in my Whirlpool Gold (Model GI6FDRXXY07) stopped making ice. I can get water from the door and can hear the ice maker cycling. It is calling for water but the flow valve is not opening.


The same valve that the water comes from except there are two halves to the valve. The valve you need is a=> Whirlpool Refrigerator Water Inlet Valve WPW10312696 The problem is with these models the ice maker tends to function a little causing you to believe it is OK when they are worn out. I can point you to a manual to see if the water valve works by going to page 18 HERE and use a jumper wire between test point L and the letter V. Make sure the wire is insulated so you don't get shocked. Otherwise the ice maker may need to be changed and it is less expensive than the water control valve Ice Maker=> HERE

If the ice maker is not refilling with water after its last harvest that points to the=> W10408179 Water Inlet Valve. If the ice maker just sits there with ice and does not empty into the ice bucket we will need to test the 4389102 Ice Level Control
Instructions on how to test can be found HERE If you have something else happening here please let me know, Sea Breeze
If the ice maker is not refilling with water the side of the water control valve that fills the ice maker is defective and you will still get water from the dispenser. The parts I listeed above are for your GS6SHAXLS03 refrigerator.

ICE MAKER


There will be several items to check that can get your ice maker back to operational. First you will need to see if the ice maker is refilling after each batch. Us a light or feel to see if ice maker is empty from the last cycle. If no water is in the ice slots use a cup and pour tap water into the empty ice slots to about the top of the ice maker. Allow water to freeze and if the cube's dump into ice bin. If then water does not refill the ice maker I believe the dual water control valve=> 67005154 Dual Water Control Valve is at fault.

Ice maker


Kevin if your model number ASD2622HR is correct you can test your water control vave after removing the front cover.of the ice maker using a ohm test points you should get from the N and V test points should show around 150 to 350 ohms of resistance. Then ohm test test ports L and H test points are for testing the mold heater. The dual water control valve ca still be defective mechanically so tell me is there water or ice still remaining in the ice slots? Pour tap water into ice maker and allow to freeze and if ice maker cycles and drops the ice into ice bin then does not refill with water that will indicate a defective water control valve. You should get around 72 ohm's of resistance. A new dual water control valve=> 67005154 Dual Inlet Water Valve

I've got a Whirlpool side by side refrigerator that is about 7 years old. The freezer side works, the frige side works, and the ice maker is making ice. The front door ice and water dispensor isnt working...


That will take a few test to determine which is the most likely. Most times it is a loose connection in wiring harness as it goes from cabinet to door or the freezer light switch is defective. When you open door to freezer all of the fountain and ice maker power is disconnected for safety reasons. If the switch is defective when door is shut then these are acting as a lockout. But you just said ice maker works so we are back to a bad connection or the LV (Low Voltage)board itself. This will take someone with a multi meter and follow through with me and wiring from the tech. sheet. I will try to make a wiring diagram for you to follow here. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool mod.ed25pqxfw1 will not despense ice. motor will not run. is there a test procedure?


I found a parts manual through Whirlpool and it says your ice maker is mechanical type. Fill with tap water and let freeze and if ice maker cycles and dumps the ice but does not refill the the water control valve part number 2182106 but that number has now changed to 2188542. Try this test first and I will send the parts manual and user manual. The test will point to what is happening like water control valve or the fill thermostat inside the ice maker, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have water going through the water dispenser, but no water going into the ice maker. The infrared light seems to aligned with the receiver.


The water inlet solenoid on the back of frige has two valves that never go out at the same time. Follow the supply line to the solenoid. Turn off water supply, unplug frige and replace part.

Ice maker not making ice. Water disp inside frig disp water.


the line that gives water to the ice maker, every time the water comes down it lives a drip of water that turns to ice blocking the line, get some hot water and a towel and place the hot wet towel on top of the line intel it melts the ice in side the line. it happens to my frige at list once a year. if that is not the problem the valve that supplies water tho the ice maker needs replacing, it's behind the frige at the bottom, where the line coming from the house meets the frige.
