IS THE BACK OF THE FREEZER CLEAR ICE OR WHITE FROST?
IF IT IS WHITE FROST, THERE IS A FAILURE OF THE DEFROST CYCLE. THREE COMPONENTS NEED TO BE CHECKED. THERE IS A DEFROST TIMER, HEATER AND BI-METAL. THE HEATER AND BI-METAL ARE LOCATED BEHIND THE BACK WALL OF THE FREEZER WHERE THE FROST IS BUILDING UP. IF IT IS A WHIRLPOOL, THE TIMER IS LOCATED IN THE FRESH FOOD COMPARTMENT WITH THE COLD CONTROL. LOOK FOR A HOLE THE SIZE OF A DIME IN THE CONTROL HOUSING. THERE IS A SMALL DIAL IN THERE THAT CAN BE ADVANCED WITH A SCREWDRIVER.
ADVANCE IT UNTIL YOU HEAR A STRONG CLICK AND THE
REFRIGERATOR SHUTS OFF. THAT WILL BE IN THE DEFROST CYCLE. WAIT ABOUT TEN MINUTES AND LISTEN FOR SIZZLING IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT. ALSO LOOK FOR A RED/ORANGE GLOW IN THE FREEZER. IF THAT HAPPENS, THE HEATER AND BI-METAL ARE O.K.
REPLACE THE TIMER. IF NOT, TAKE THE BACK PANEL OFF THE FREEZER AND CHECK THE HEATER AND BI-METAL WITH A VOLT-OHM METER. REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE PART.
ON G.E. REFRIGERATORS, SOME HAVE THE TIMER LOCATED BEHIND THE TOE PLATE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE REFRIGERATOR. ON OTHER REFRIGERATORS, IT IS LOCATED INSIDE THE COMPRESSOR COMPARTMENT TUCKED BACK IN A CORNER.

I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.

SOURCE: my ice maker is leaking
the icemaker fill valve is probably leaking thru, its located on the backside of your fridge, just follow your water line, the valve is pretty easy to change out and will cost you less than 40 dollars

HI,CHECK FOR CONTINUITY ON THE DEFROST ELEMENT AND B-METAL IF THOSE COMPONENTS PASS THE TEST MAYBE THE TIMER OR DEFROST CONTROL COULD BE BAD IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR..GOOD LUCK..

Repairing this is pretty easy once you know how ice
makers work. Just remember there are thousands of different models of
refrigerators and it will always be a good idea to write your model number and
brand name somewhere because that will be the first thing the repair parts
vendor will ask for. On refrigerators most times will be around the inside door
frame of the fresh food compartment. Then you will have the Kenmore Brand model
numbers that look like this 790.99012 Most of that information can be found on
this page Locating the Number's enough about that part an ice maker unfortunately
has about a five year life span and most whirlpool brand have repair parts but
by the time you add the parts and time you could have already bought a new ice
maker. This of course is not to say your ice maker is at fault here. If you
have no ice or shrinking ice in the ice slots of your refrigerator fill with
tap water and make sure ice maker is turned on. Once the water in the ice maker
(if ice maker is good) freezes it should drop into ice bin. If water does not
refill thist points to the dual water control valve located on back and near
floor. Below is a video that I find very informing weather you have a Whirlpool
or another brand. If video does not appear below then click here=> Broken Ice Make Repairs Most
people say if they have water in fountain that they should also have ice but
the fact is the dual water control is called that because one side fill the ice
maker while the other controls the water dispenser. If to have a multi-meter
and would like to test please let me know. With wiring disconnected from the
water control valves you have a coil that acts as a magnet to pull a metal
plunger open when ice maker calls for water and the coil for the dispenser side
both should read from 150 to 250 ohms. at the terminals coming out of them. If
not then they should be replace with a complete new water control valve. If you
have questions or need more answers please let me know, Thank you Sea Breeze.
