Charles, these models have a habit of the inlet tube freezing over. Make sure the black tube feeding the trough is clear. You may want to disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through it. I use hot water in a baster to clear them all the time. Another thing is to check the optics. When opening the freezer door the red optic light on the right should flash 2x with a pause repeatedly. When you close the left hand emitter flapper the light should stay on. If it does this your optics are good. Because of these optics the new ice-maker has to be jumped started into a cycle. Once started you can monitor the fill. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: icemaker not making ice

First thing to check is to see if the optics are working properly. This is the red flashing light on right hand side of freezer wall. Close the flipper door, be sure not to block the beam, and the light should go to solid red. If it does then the optics are ok. If it continues to blink then that is your problem. If optics check ok then pull ice maker out and remove the white plastic cover. It just pulls off. Look at the center of the gear wheel and see if one of the plastic tabs is either broken or if they are sort of twisted and touching eachother. If any of these things with the gear have happened then that module will need to be replaced along with the ice maker thermostat. If your not sure how to replace these parts then just replace the whole ice maker. That is much easier and not much more costly.
After changing the parts or the ice maker out follow these steps to start the ice maker thru a cycle. 1. Remove the ice maker from the cradle but leave the harness connected. Remove the front cover from the module. Unplug the refrigerator. Get a small jumper wire with bare ends and jump T and H on the module, leave the jumper in and set the ice maker on the shelf. Close the door. Now plug the refer back in and wait 30 seconds. Open the door and the ice-maker should be cycling. Remove the jumper, put the module cover back on and set it back in the cradle. The fill should take place when the ejector blades reach the 12:00 position. Follow these steps exactly in order

Icemaker doesn't work


If the ice maker is not filling, you will need to replace the "water inlet valve" on the back of the unit. Here is the part you need to order.

Ice maker doesn't work


Testing the ice maker:
As far as the smaller line (1/4") you have to manually advance the ice maker and wait for it to call for water with the 1/4" line disconnected from the valve. For whirlpool and its subsidaries,you can do this by getting a jumper wire, removing the cover of icemaker, which you jsut grab and pull off, and using the jumper wire insert one end of the wire into the cirle marked m and the other in the cicle marked n. Leave there until you hear a click and sometimes see a little spark behind the modular head wheel. For GE, you turtn the ice maker off, wait about a minute then turn back on, water should automatically shoot water in the icemaker. That will tell you the water valve is good and icemaker is bad, or the ice maker is good and the valve is bad if no water. Also if you see ice in the maker that hasn't dumper and the teeth of the icemaker are facing any direction other than two o clock position, the icemaker is bad. Also check the fill tube to be sure the no ice is blocking water from coming in.

Ice-maker stopped working


Pour Water manually in Ice maker and wait for ejection. If it ejects then the water mixer valve
underneath the rear of the Ref is defective. If it doesn't eject then the icemaker itself is the fault.

My whirlpool refrigerator model # is no longer making ice consistently it will drop a few cubes every now and then. the lines are clear and no blockage what could be the problem?


Scale builds up in older icemakers and some of the cubes stick and don't eject.
Check your ice maker after it dumps and see if its keeping some of the cubes and
not ejecting them.
There are cleaners for the Icemaker. Call your local Parts Store.

We have a whirlpool refrigerator model number ED25PQXNN01 and the icemaker does not work...have already replaced valve and icemaker...still does not work. Please help


that model number doesn't come up?did you check the fill line that fills the ice maker to see if it's froze up?get a hair dryer and a screw driver,stick the screw driver into the fill line,you might have to remove the ice maker,if the screw driver hits ice blow the hot air into the hole and keep the screw driver in the line,the screw driver will heat up and help get the ice out.you can pull the fridge out and heat the fill line with the hair dryer on the back of the machine where the fill line connects in the back up top.if there's no ice there make sure water is coming to the fridge,also you can jump out the ice maker to manually check it to see what's happening to it,i'll look up a link and send it to you,just copy and paste it and it will show you how to jump out the ice maker and how to jump out the water valve,you'll have to pop off the front white cover of the ice maker,get a piece of wire to stick into the holes to jump it out.
