At the end of the cycle, the icemaker module sends power to the water inlet valve to refill the tray with water. If you see any frost on any walls, floor, ceilings, then you need to completely defrost the unit by unplugging, remove all food and leave doors open for 2 days. We've defrosted the ENTIRE unit and after 2 days the ice maker was back to normal. The ice fill tube has a darker blue fitting on it. It can disrupt the flow of water and spill out everywhere. I do not work for RepairClinic nor receive compensation from them. I actually see it, red, periodically, just not all the time. March 3 by All night baby!! Start doing it yourself with the confidence that comes with 100+ years of experience. @scrowi14. So 45 min later another dump and fill! Also try cleaning both the send and receive lens. I had this same problem and went with RepairClinic.com because they offer full refund if the part purchased did not fix the problem. 06/24/2019 by It plugs in to the top right corner of my WRF992FIFM00 French Door Freezer. Even worked for a few days. Our icemaker tries to work. Then I shut off the power to reset the computed, and that did not work either. Here are some fix’s for several situations. The water pressure in the house is above 20PSI. Have checked water pressure, have replaced water inlet valve to ice maker. Thanks @ladytech.
I bought it in 2007 and starting about 2017 it would make ice for a few days then suddenly the ice bucket would be full of water. Had to make a patch to reconnect wires and now I'm making ice. The home may have insufficient water pressure. ). Therefore it must be the temperature control assembly. I hope it's as simple as finding a broken wire behind the kickplate on the freezer door, because anything beyond that is probably beyond my skill level. (It's the only one that is prone to freezing up if water drips into it from a leaky solenoid, etc..). The rake is the is what rotated to push the ice out. $1200 icemaker taken down by cheap potmetal part (look up potmetal) worth 1 penny. Thanks!
If the icemaker module is defective, the ice maker won’t make or dispense ice. Three days later, bucket full of water. Fixed that and now it is not making ice. Figured out the ice doesn't always dump right. Children might play with the display and turn it off. Ice cubes will mysteriously appear once or twice every couple of weeks. If the ice level control board is getting power, but the ice maker won’t work, replace the ice level control board. Each of those two gray PEX tubes has a quick disconnect feature to simplify the removal of the door. As the water leaks past the coil it rolls down the fill tube, drop by drop, until one freezes at the end of the fill tube. I also have a refrigerator, washer and dryer from the 80s that have never broken. This is a saga about a standalone Uline icemaker in my basement bar. Whirlpool sent out a repair person. This site gave me every tip I tried and it took a ton of trial and error. I'm guessing they're all pretty similar in function. Not the infrared emitter or the water valve or the wiring harness…they have no moving parts…..I disagree with the door replace diagnosis. Some refrigerators use an infrared beam to sense the level of ice in the ice bucket. It’s boring, but air can take as long as10-15 min to get flushed out. If the icemaker switch does not have continuity, replace it. If the ice level control board fails, the ice maker will stop making ice. You are using an out of date browser. You must log in or register to reply here. $39 part. It can take several days before that air is removed. Scott, please disregard my last comment. To determine if the door switch is defective, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If you hear gears turning but don’t see anything moving. He said he's seen this same issue several times. This is a very common problem. Frankly, even if I did, I can't imagine being able to do anything down there without taking a lot of things apart. Any idea where I can find step-by-step instructions for replacing?
I still do not have water going to the icemaker. Usually digital cameras can "see" infra red. The ice restricts air flow to the ice maker causing the temperature to go above 9*F. The i/m won’t cycle over 9*F. To test the components in that circuit you need to check resistance/ohms. What I. As for sensors, most ice makers have sensors built into the actual ice maker mechanism. When that happens all kinds of weird ice making behavior can occur. Scott Williams. Is the ice maker switched OFF? Jorge rocha, Check wires at the bottom of the door. If you have pets, clean more often. One component of the ice maker assembly might be defective. I will look for all fans - I think the only one I'm aware of is on the lower back though, right? How long will it make ice once it starts back up? In addition, check to see if frost has accumulated on the evaporator coils. I also looked online - A whole new icemaker was $1200. Shipping all 7 days! Ensure that the ice level control board is getting power. @whiteknight1950. Did your LED go out at all or was it always lit? Scott Williams, in 34 yrs I’ve never replaced an optic sensor, This model has had several issues that have caused little to no ice. WRF736SDAM13 Whirlpool Refrigerator - I can’t deal with this ice maker anymore! It makes one tray and stops when reset button is pushed.
We got a new wpool frig a few months ago in late 2018. Melted and dug out the ice in the icemaker holding tray and housing and reinserted unit into housing. Most failed compressors are due to dirty coils. If it is NOT plugged with ice, it will feel like you're blowing through a straw with very little resistance. The temperature in the ice maker compartment will rise and the ice plug in your fill line will melt naturally. thanks tmol, ok thanks for in-of will be working on this first thing am will update thanks t mol. Thinking it's my ice maker but just getting a second opinion. I found ice on the back wall behind the ice maker assembly, so I'm suspecting that I've got a defrost issue. Water dispenser, filter and pressure are fine. So thankful!!!
I received the new inlet valve this past Saturday and made the replacement on Sunday. The water inlet valve is an electrically-controlled valve that opens to supply water to the dispenser and ice maker. If you have ice then you need to replace the filter and flush the line at the water dispenser at least one gallon of water to remove air.
Whirlpool Model WRX988SIBM00 refrigerator ice maker not filling nor dispensing ice.
It rubs or is under to much tension. Some have a on/off switch on the I/M, on the display, on the wall in freezer etc.
The light on the sensor was blinking. Water spilling out when ice try is filling. If so, the ice dispenser chute door isn’t sealing good. It will go unnoticed. Any recommendations? First, depending on your model, make sure that the on/off switch is in the on position or the bail arm is in the down position. Pauline, stick you finger in the tray that holds the water to freeze and see if there is ice or even water. If this is truly an LED emitter, then shouldn't I be able to see a light beam if I place a piece of paper in its way with the door switch engaged? Plugged it up and dang it works. The defrost circuit has a heater, defrost thermostat (round disc type bimetal), a sensor and evaporator fan motor.
