Whirlpool not making ice. Replaced all parts (?).
Model Number: ED5FVGXVS00 Brand: Whirlpool Age: 5 - 10 years
My ice maker stopped working right after I cleaned the condenser coils, which was an odd coincidence (?). Here's the order of events:
Ordered/rec'd new ice maker assy - filler funnel was broken on new unit, so replacement was sent. Installed, still no ice.
Ordered/rec'd water valves. Replaced, still no ice. Ohm'd original valves and got 250 and 500 ohms so I guess that wasn't the problem.
Checked for blockage on water inlet tube with pipe cleaner - none. Video I saw showed that I had the "updated" version.
Learned that jumping certain holes on ice maker head can either call for water (worked) or call for manual ice harvest (did not work).
Thinking the new head on the ice maker was faulty, I replaced it with the head from the other new unit that came with broken filler funnel mentioned above. Still could not get it to do a manual harvest. (Never manually turned dial on any of the units)
I checked the connector into the ice maker and am getting either 120 VAC or 15VAC; I don't have a wiring diagram so I don't know which pin was supposed to give me what voltage. The jump ports for the manual harvest were giving me 15VAC.
Could I have gotten 2 defective ice maker units? I replaced everything in the system right? Is there another diagnostic I can do? Or should I just request another replacement ice maker?
Thanks for the help!
