Whirlpool Mod#GI7FVCXWY00 ice maker freezing over

4 posts in this topic

Unit wasn't making ice. Took front plate off and saw ice build up around icemaker. Tech sheet says there's an icemaker thermistor but I didn't see it on parts list. Also. How do I take out icemaker? I also have a service manual request but I thought I would see if anyone else has had this issue. Also, does the freezer provide cold air for the icemaker or does it have its own evap? Thanks.

There should be three 1/4" screws and a wiring harness keeping this contraption in place. This ice maker is the most common one and I believe yours is the same, but without the optics control.

Also, the icemaker showing signs of ice build up may be symptoms of a different problem. A picture of the ice patterns would be greatly helpful.

Its a common one but its the shorty. I think it has a bad water valve as for some stupid reason WP mounted it in console. I am going back out there this morning to finish job so I'll let you know.
