whirlpool Gold Side by Side Icemaker
Posted 19 May 2005 - 03:36 PM
Her icemaker works, dispenses, water works as it should from everything thing I can tell. so not sure if it is suppose to flash like that or not.
I wouldn't ask, but the led on the same fridge under the kenmore brand doesn't flash so wonder if it is indication some type of problem we need to fix? The trouble shooting manual that came with the fridge is absolutly no help.
Thanks in advance

Yes, my Kenmore works just fine, and so does my mother-in-law's whirlpool gold as far as I can tell. She said that it quite making ice at one point, but started again and that is what I don't understand. The only thing it is doing that it wasn't previously is the led is flashing. That is why I thought it might be a trouble indicator and the problem might be intermitent.
Since I couldn't find the purpose of that LED, not sure what the flashing red means...is it some type of sensor indicator? Both machines are fairly new within the past three years so the boards are what came from the factory

The LED can be used by a technician to tell what mode the icemaker is in, what version control boards, and for diagnostics.
If you remove the grill on the bottom front of the frig, you should find a tech sheet and wiring diagram folded up in a small slot. You can read all about the icemaker controls.
