Question about Whirlpool Freezers

Open Question

The ice maker over filled and made a clattering noise so we emptied it, The filter needed changing so we did that. Now the ice does not dispense properly you get a few lumps and when you put onto crushed ice nothing at all. The top lights flash now and again, blackout light, key light and triagle hazzard light.

The ice maker has a float or full detection device that shuts the water off when trays are full. If you are sure this is where the water is coming from, then that's it.

Hi

If  The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

Thanks

either the thermostat is bad or the heater isnt working. You could take the icemaker out and connect leads to the heater to see if it warms up or use an ohm meter to test the heater and thermostat. Also take the cover off and see if the cog wheel on the motor is broken.

SOURCE: Floating bits in Whirlpool fridge-freezer crushed ice water

Ice cubes freeze from the outside, so the center of the cube is the last to freeze. Ice is pure water, only H 2 O, so as the ice cube freezes, all of the dissolved minerals are pushed to the center. Near the end of the freezing, there isn't much water left in the center of the cube, so these minerals become very concentrated, and they form the "white stuff" – the technical name is precipitate. The hardness minerals that cause the "white stuff" are not toxic.

My ice maker wont deliver ice. can you help


Ice maker/ ice dispenser manual HERE

If the ice maker mold is empty try adding some water. Wait. If a batch of ice pops out then water valve replacement is in order. If it fails to pop out a bit of ice then the ice maker is bad. I have more information on a page I created HERE

Whirlpool GR2FHTXVQ00 fridge. Water dispenser


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

You can thaw out the fill tube and replace the inlet valves.

Ice maker not getting water


Probably the dual water valve (that opens when the ice maker needs water ) is leaking and the filling tube gets clogh with ice , or the valve doesn't work ,in both cases it has to be replace.

Ice maker does not fill with water


If your model has a water
Filter, that may need replacing. If that isn't it, the water valve most likely is the problem

Kenmore Ice Maker


Sounds like a water valve problem to me. Force the ice maker to cycle. (turn it off and let it get cold for at least an hour then turn it back on). Test for voltage on the ice maker side of the valve. The valve is usually in the back near the floor. Just follow the water line. Another solution. switch the wires on the water valve. then try the water dispenser and see if it makes the ice maker fill up. See if when the ice maker cycles water comes out the door. If the ice maker causes water in the door , replace the valve, If door switch causes ice maker to fill up replace ice maker again.

Freezer is not making ice


PULL THE FRONT COVER OFF OF THE ICE MAKER AND CHECK THE PLASTIC GEAR ON THE FRONT OF THE CONTROL. THE CENTER OF THE GEAR HAS TWO PLASTIC TABS THAT HOLD THE GEAR IN PLACE. IF ONE OF THE TABS IS BROKEN OR MISSING, THE CONTROL OR THE WHOLE ICE MAKER NEED TO BE REPLACED.
CHECK THE ICEMAKER TO SEE IF THERE IS WATER OR ICE IN THE MOULD. IF NO WATER OR ICE, THE FILL TUBE IN THE BACK WALL MAY BE FROZEN OFF. REMOVE THE FILL TUBE AND CLEAR IT OF ANY OBSTRUCTION. YOU CAN ALSO USE A HAIR DRYER TO MELT OUT ANY ICE FROM THE FILL TUBE. THE OTHER POSSIBLITY IS A BAD WATER VALVE. THE WATER VALVE HAS TWO OUTPUTS, ONE FOR THE DISPENSER AND ANOTHER FOR THE ICE MAKER.
