Whirlpool Gold refrigerator GSS26C4XXA00 no ice being made

7 posts in this topic

Customer of ours is complaining of no ice being made. This is a new model for us - with the icemaker and bucket mounted on the freezer door. Anyone else dealt with this type before?? We don't want to tear things up just attempting to access the icemaker itself. We've also seen some blogs talk about a heater kit for the door to keep water line from freezing. Very little info out there on this one - guess it is newer off the warranty timeframe.

If water line is found to be frozen, order and install the 2 watt heater kit P/N W10347267.  Comes with tubing and heater that will have to be "fished" through the channel in the door.  Will need to remove dispenser assy and icemaker to install.

OR, is there Ice in the IceMaker, but it won't "harvest" ?

Valve okay, water lines okay(not frozen) , no ice in icemaker and it looks like it stopped mid harvest - rake is at 6 o'clock. Optics on this one are within the door's frame for ice bucket and are priced as separate pieces - about 260 for the set. Not the best set-up I've seen

there's a thermal Fuse in the IceMaker Wire Harness

Replaced ice maker entirely, but it has produced less than 1/2 bin of ice in 4 days of operation. Customer also complaining of a humming noise that started with new ice maker. Getting nowhere fast on solving this one! Whirlpool must be having a slew of these problems as all parts suggested as solutions are on backorder!
