Default Ice stuck in maker
Model Number: GS6SHEXMQ00   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My ice maker is making ice but the harvester arm is not able to remove the ice. It may also be frozen in there with excessive water/ice. I assume this is a heater problem as the heater is not providing melt to allow the harvester arm to deliver the ice to the bucket.

Removing this ice maker seems complicated versus removal of a interior ice maker on a top freezer unit. This is a side by side unit with indoor ice and water.

I defrosted the unit last night and the harvester arm went through it's rotation but it was back to step one when I checked it this morning.

Suggestions on the appropriate part/parts and how to do the install would be much appreciated.

Ok
the problem I'm having is not the heater system but with the ice maker's control module.

This appears a simple fix however I cannot even get the ice maker out of the freezer

I saw this video link but my ice maker is not like this.
Refrigerator Repair- Replacing the Icemaker Control & Motor Assembly (Whirlpool Part# W10190935) - YouTube

Any tips for removal of this particular model's ice maker?

Thanks

Removed it at last - what a terrible design. It appears it is the heating element as it had corroded away on one side of the ice tray.
