J, As you open the freezer door the LED on the right should flash 2X with a pause repeatedly. When you hold the left side emmiter down the light should stay on steady. If you have this, you know the optics are good unless the ejector blades are not home. First thing to check is where the ejector blades on the ice maker are parked. They should be resting in the 2:00 position. If they are not, you could have a broken module. If they are in the 2:00 positon the next thing to check would be the fill tube. You want to make sure it is not frozen over. You can disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through the line or visually inspect it. If all of the above mentioned check out, jump start the ice-maker. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the right side. Remove the harness cover. Pull the ice-maker straight out but be carefull not to smash the emmitter flap on the left side. Leave the harness connected. Get a jumper wire with the ends stripped apout a 1/4 inch. Unplug the refer and place the jumper in test holes T&H. Leave the jumper in and place the ice maker on the shelf where you can close the door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 30 seconds and open the door. The ice maker should be cycleing. Pull the jumper and place the module cover back on. Put the ice maker back in the rails. It should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Let me know how you make out. Catriver.

you should not be able to push the stripper at all so that tells me that the gear on the icemaker module is bad. get part number 8201515 and you should be fixed up.

Check to make sure you freezer is at 0 to 5 degrees. If it is not the water valve to the ice maker will not even open.

SOURCE: ice maker will not dispense the ice

The auger motor and coupling in the rear may be frozen and won't turn.
Remove the ice bin.
Place a screwdriver or similar device in the forks of the auger and twist counterclockwise till it moves. The replace the ice bin and try again.
It will be difficult to move.
If that does not work. Turn off the fridge and use a hair dryer to hrat the auger gear and motor till it frees up.

I hope this helps

The light in the fridge is not the bulb. How do I remove the light housing......I found and removed the front screw but cannot disengage the rear part of the fitting.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. It is difficult to answer your question without a model number because there are several types of light sockets in use. The majority of the sockets can simply be rotated 90 degrees and removed. Others have a locking tab that needs to be unlatched.
Before trying to rotate the light (expecially in the freezer compartment) make sure there is no ice build up around the socket. If there is ice.. use a hand held hair dryer or vacuum exhaust for an extended period to remove the ice first. If you still can not get it loose respond with a model number and I will look up the light socket to see where the locking tabs are. (Most of the time only one side has the lock tab and the other side is rotated up to remove it.)

Having said all of the above... I doubt the light socket is bad. Most light problems that persist after a bulb change are directly related to the door switch. Unplug the unit first then remove the light switch by sliding a thin knife blade on the side of the switch unlock the tab(s). The freezer light switch only has one tab while the fresh food compartment switch has two. Make a jumper for the 2 wires with an insulated wire and momentaily plug the unit in to check for a light. If you have a light the switch is bad. As for the freezer switch it has 3 wires you will need to look at the switch. It has 3 markings C, NO and NC. You will need to jumper from C to NC to get the light to work if the switch has failed. As long as one end of the jumper is on C you will not hurt anything if you jumper the wires incorrectly. One of the terminals powers the ice maker door closed (if you have an ice maker) and the other powers the light door open.

I think you have a door switch problem vs a light socket problem.

Here is a little about my experience:

Water does not come from the water dispenser and won't make ice and when I checked in the back I saw water halfway in the clear tube that goes into the refrigerator.....

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Since you did not include your model number I have to respond in GENERIC terms. Open the freezer door and locate the light switch. Depress the light switch to make sure that the light is going off when the freezer door is closed. This light switch (with plunger) also turns off power to the water in door and the ice maker when the door is open. If the light stays on with the switch depressed it will not make ice or pass water through the door. The switch is removed by sliding a putty knife or thin knife blade on on side of the switch to release the locking tab. The switch will have 3 wires on it. C = (common / power) NC = ice maker and NC = light. There will only be continuity between C and either NO or NC depending on the plunger / actuator position. It will never read between all 3 contacts at the same time but C will always be one of the 2 test points. A replacement light / door switch is less than $10.00.

If you want more specific information or need further troubleshooting assistance after checking the door switch, please respond with your model number and I will gladly help you.

Excess water delivered to ice maker

That will depend on type of ice maker and model number of refrigerator. At times the water control valve will stick because of age or just leaking while off like a dripping faucet. Can you find model number of your whirlpool? I do have some repair manuals for ice makers if they are not the electronic type. Sea Breeze

I need the part # for the icemaker ordered

Now here is the confusing part. If your model number is a GE PDS22LBN the Ice Maker would be part number WR30X10039 for the model number posted above your post. If you have sears model number for the refrigerator it will be like 312.235698 for example. Confirm the model number of the refrigerator and I can tell you the correct Ice Maker part number. Thanks Sea Breeze

I had this problem with my GE ice maker not working and it was an unbelievably easy fix. If you have the same ice maker then you will see a green light by the power switch. Below the ice maker is a "paddle" ice sensor. The paddle is attached to the ice maker and there is a coil type tension spring. If your paddle is loose, make sure the end of the spring (the pointy wire end) is inserted into a small hole. You probably can't see the hole but move the wire end until it pops into the small hole. You should now have tension on the paddle. At this point I had heard that the freezer light bulb may be drawing too much current for the ice makers motherboard. I removed the bulb and, UNBELIEVABLY, the ice maker began making ice! Try removing or replacing the LIGHT BULB first!

No ice through dispenser

When you operate the ice dispenser lever, you should be able to hear a little click from a micro-switch that then switches the auger motor and the light on and also opens the flap. If you cannot hear this small click, then the micro-switch is faulty. The ice dispenser only works when the freezer door is closed, so you could also inspect the door light/fan switch for proper operation.
