if compressor isn't running you could have a bad start device,unplug the machine,pull it away from the wall,remove the back bottom panel,look at the compressor,you'll see the start device on the side of the compressor,pop off the metal clip and slide back the device,there are three pins on the compressor and the device has three holes in it,you line up the holes and push the device onto the pins and to remove it pull back on the device to slide it off the pins,the easiest way to check it is to shake it,if you hear pieces rattling around inside the device it's bad,you can check it with a meter.if it's bad call your parts store,give them the full model number and they will send you the correct part,if the start device is good,there's also a computer board in this machine part W10446514 and it's around 90 dollars.hope this helps you out and good luck.

Hi Lucille,
NO This model does not have a water filter.You will need to complete disconnect the ice maker and clean it out. Then remove and flush the fill tube. If ice still appear dirty, you may to replace the water valve,the water tube and the ice maker too. I will link the parts needed and see the repair video on how to access them. https://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-whirlpool-icemaker-kit-4317943-ap2984633.html

The main control board in the back of the fridge is most likely what is wrong.

I think the model number is ED2KVEXVB00. Most Whirlpool appliance model numbers end in digits, not letters. SearsPartsDirect has the parts lists here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/50z7if8ddb-001198/whirlpool-ed2kvexvb00-side-by-side-refrigerator-parts . Another source for the parts is https://www.partselect.com/Models/ED2KVEXVB00/ . There are probably others.

I hope this helps.

The styrofoam is the insulation between the inner plastic surface and the outer metal surface.

Airflow is created by the internal fan. The cold air drops down from the freezer above. The foam surrounded channel is usually in the rear wall.
