Icemaker Whirpool side by side Model ed25smxrnro

8 posts in this topic

The icemaker  stopped making ice. I have placed the actuator in the proper position.  A small metal clip was found on the back shelf (indentation in the rear of the cabinet) behind the ice maker. Water dispenser still works, though sometimes fails for short periods.

I haven't found a diagram to see wher the clip might go. Any suggestions?  Do these things often go out? 

Thanks

The only clip that I can think of that might be behind the ice maker might have come from the fill cup, that holds the fill tube in place so it will not come up and spray water into the freezer.  A no ice condition could be a bad fill valve, bad head in the ice maker, or the fill tube to the ice maker is frozen up.  Check the fill tube first.  The same fill valve feeds both the ice maker and the water dispenser so this could be causing both problems???  Pegi

Thanks.  Do you know of any diagrams that show where this clip might be between the tube and the rest of the icemaker?  By feel, the tube seems to terminate and just empty into the small rear compartment of the icemaker (ie. an open end). Can you defrost this with hot wet towels of do I need to shut it down?

Thanks for your attention.

Here's a picture of your icemaker, and I'm sure the clip your talking about is ref#58, just as Pegi was directing you towards.

If the fill tube is frozen just use your blow drier.  It will freeze up if your fill valve is going bad..

The fill tubes on some makes have been re-designed to help reduce the occurance of this problem.
