Whirlpool Refrigerators - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


When you open the freezer door the light should be blinking. When you hold the flipper door shut (on the left hand side) without blocking the beam, the light should stay on solid. If all of this happens then the optics are o.k. If optics are ok then you most likely have a broken motor module on the icemaker and should replace the icemaker thermostat along with it. A bad icemaker thermostat will lead to the module breaking. If you not sure how to replace these parts then I would just replace the whole icemaker. That would be easiest and usually not much more expensive.

check to see if your water supply is frozen by using a hair dryer and blow hot air into the line from the ice maker for about 5 min. May have to repeat this a couple of times.

Check the plug connection(electrical) make sure it's VERY tight. I had that problem and it was the connector.

turn the dial down in that section . if it still freezes up suggest you call a repair service it is possible the air damper motor has stuck in the full open location . have heard of some that are not repairable also and the company had to replace the entire unit factory fault in their foaming process and foamed the wiring in place
