Gene...is this a owner servicable repair if one is pretty handy around the house?? I've done most everything there is to do regarding house repair/mtce, but have never worked on a frig except to replace an IM in an older frig. Thanks much for the quick reply!

There is nothing complicated. Do not forget to unplug the refrigerator prior to the repair and try not leave some extra parts. LOL

Will do sir. Thanks kindly and yes, it's always a good idea to disconnect the power! I'll get the parts ordered you mentioned and thanks again. I'll post again if necessary.

Smile Kenmore not making ice - now fixed!

Many thanks for the advice Gene. Got my parts, got them installed. you're right it was a snap; followed the instructions for testing and we're back to making ice. I got it installed and running same day as receiving the parts from APP!
Again, much thanks! I've already told 2 folks about the site and how good the advice was!

Default Whirlpool fridge doesn't make ice

My Whirlpool GD2SHGXLB00 side-by-side also does not make any ice. A couple of weeks ago we came home from being out of down for a couple of days and found water all over the floor. The ice maker had either overflowed or just not frozen any of the incoming water for a short period because when we opened the freezer door there was frozen water all over the side of the ice maker, the shelves, the door's shelves, the bottom of the freezer and all of the ice in the tray was frozen into a solid block. The ice maker has not made any ice since then.

After reading through the prior posts, I tried reversing the solenoid connectors for the water fill valve and didn't get any water coming into the ice maker. I checked the line going from the fill valve to the ice maker inlet and haven't found any blockage, though I thought that there might be some frozen water in it somewhere. So what is the likely part that's gone out?

Very likely the water inlet valve was stuck open and then broke. I would just replace the part. You may try to blow some air through the ice maker fill tube while it is disconnected from the water valve to make sure it is not blocked.

Default Ice maker problem

Thanks Gene, I'll get that part replaced when I can and post a reply again. However, a $60 part to get the ice maker working is a bit more expensive than a set of $1 ice trays, so it may be a while before I reply again.

Question Whirlpool Model # ED5PHEXRQ00

My ice maker is not making ice. Okay, before I stumbled upon this awesome site I bought a new inlet valve. I connected it and still no ice. Water still not making it up to ice maker. I switched the leads as recommended on here with the old inlet valve reconnected. Water then made it up to the ice maker. So my valve was actually in good shape. What's my next step?
Thank you!

If the water inlet valve is good and the water is coming into the ice maker as soon as the power applied to the solenoid, replace the ice maker.
