Question:

How long after replacing water inlet valve does it take to start making ice cubes?

Doug Zerbe
Answer:

Hi Doug, Thank you for your inquiry. Once a water inlet valve or an ice maker is replaced, it takes approximately 24 hours for the ice maker to start making ice. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

I have water from my door front water dispenser, but no water coming into the icemaker assembly. Do i need to replace the water inlet valve or just the icemaker assembly?

Answer:

Hi Carol, Thank you for your inquiry. There are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the ice maker, the icemaker control assembly, the emitter and receiver boards, the water inlet valve and the water filter. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

My ice maker stopped working and was leaking. I replaced the control assembly which stopped the leaking but it still will not make ice. I manually attempted to fill the ice tray but the water ran out into the freezer immediately as it was filled. Optics seem okay as it blinks twice and pauses when it should and stays on when it should. Please help.

Doreen for model number ED5NHAXNB01
Answer:

Hi Doreen, Thank you for your question. There are only a few parts that could cause that issue. The Ice maker itself, the receiver and emitter boards, and your water inlet valve. It sounds like your ice maker and your boards may be fine. You may want to start with your water inlet valve to see if the ice maker solenoid part of it is not working. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

I have just replaced the icemaker on my Whirlpool fridge (8 cube, purchased from you) but still no luck. Water flows to water tap in door just fine. I have been reading about the emitter and notice that when flapper door is closed i still get flashing red led, not steady. Is this an indication i need a new optics boar? Or should i replace the water valve to try that?

PAUL
Answer:

Hi Paul, Thank you for your inquiry. Based on what you described you will need to check the emitter and receiver boards to see if they are working correctly. If they are not then you will need to replace them. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Brian for model number ES5PHAXSQ00
Answer:

Hi Brian, Thank you for the question. If the ice maker is not filling with water you might have a defective Water Inlet Valve,PartSelect Number PS3497634. The valve is responsible for releasing water to the ice maker.If water is not being released to the ice maker the valve would need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Question:

Water not coming into ice maker. If I put water into the ice maker by hand it makes the ice and ejects it. The water does not come in automatically.

Sandford for model number 10656704500
Answer:

Hi Sandford, Thank you for the question. Sounds like you need to replace the Water Inlet Valve. This part releases water from the supply line when it's activated. Hope this helps!

Ice maker stopped functioning

Remove the icemaker service door... gently pry the door pins from the hinge sockets. Remove the 3 screws from the under side of the icemaker with a nut driver (1/4"). Gently remove the icemaker . It's a tight fit between the top of the compartment and the icemaker lower support tray. Next, disconnect the electrical connector at the right side. You're done! Reverse procedure for installing. Good luck. Remember, your working with cold plastic...take your time and don't force too much.

Ice maker quit working

First called the Sears repairman out (big mistake). I was worried it was something with the water line, but he ran some diagnostics and got it working. It did make one batch of ice. Cost $140 for the visit. The "fix" was short lived, since it immediately quit working again. After doing lots of reading online, all I could gather was that the main wheel inside was out of alignment/sync. Sears has a 90-day warranty on repairs, so we called them back. Of course, their warranty only covers their previous repair only, but at least we wouldn't get charged the $55 fee just to have them come out. Second repairman said there was a broken part inside the icemaker assembly, and it would cost over $320 to fix this time ($230 for the part, $70 for labor, plus tax). We politely declined. Found a whole new icemaker assembly from PartSelect for $68. Once it arrived, it was literally just three screws/bolts holding in the entire assembly, unplug the wire chassis, just like a computer motherboard, insert new assembly, plug in wire assembly, put screws back in. Works like a champ...

My icemaker stopped working. I think the motor was too weak to release the cubes

Removed two screws and popped loose the ice door. Disconnected the single electrical connector. Slid out the old, slide in the new. It worked like a charm. - Still dissappointed that the whirlpool icemaker broke after only 2 years, but the new one works great!

Ice maker did not work. Water came in, however, unit woud not eject ice.

I unplugged the refrigerator, then I taped ice shield up to top of refrigerator and taped the little flap on the left side of the refrigerator to side wall then I unscrewed one screw on the right side that holds the plug cover, which was then removed. I then updid the little latches on the icemaker and pulled the old ice maker out far enough to unplug the connector, which was not easy, but did unplug. I then unscrewed the three screws with the nutdriver and attached the bottom cover to the new ice maker. I then slid the new icemaker far enough to connect the electrical connector, then slid the new icemaker in until it latched. I replaced the connector cover and untaped the two items that had been taped and pluged the refrigerator into the wall socket. The new icemaker has produced ice every since.

Not making ice

I took a 1/4 nut driver and removed the wire cover. I then used a small screwdriver to push up the clips the lock the unit in place. I then unplugged the unit and removed. I then used the same nut driver and removed the bottom plastic cover and installed it on the new icemaker. I then put the new unit part way back onto it slides, being carful to make sure the water fill spout clears the unit. Next I plugged in the wire harness and then slid the unit the rest of the way in until it locked in place. I then reinstalled the wire cover.
This unit was delivered at 1:30 and it was installed by 2

Ice maker broke and not repariable

PartSelect was fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone! Online, Sears only showed a parts breakdown so I went to the service center. They could sell me an ice maker but PartSelect had the same ice maker for $35 less and it was on my door step the very next day! Mu husband plugged it in an we were on our way. You have been very easy to work with. I was amazed at the delivery time and I will use you in the future!

Ice maker quit making ice.

Ice Maker quit working. Seemed like a water supply issue but when I read the other reviews, I decided to install and see. bolted the bracket on with three screws, slid in place. Nothing happened and about 10 minutes later, I heard the water release to the ise maker and have been making ice ever since.

Icemaker would not complete the cycle

First removed one screw from the bottom right bottom side of the unit. Removed the door from the front of the unit. Pushed up the locking tab on the left underside of the unit and pulled the unit partway out. Removed the plastic cover ( that was retained by the screw removed and disconnected the electrical connection) and finished removing the unit from the freezer. Removed the remaining three screws from the bottom of the unit and installed on the bottom of the new unit. I then slid the new unit partially in and connected the wiring harness and slid the rest of the way in guiding the water line into thepocket which was taller than the origional unit. Reinstalled the wire protective cover with one screw and the front cover back on the new unit. Done and is working great.

Unit would not make ice

After deciding it was the unit itself and not a water celenoid I ordered it from parts select. Instead of 3 to 5 business days it arived the next day after ordering. I had previously removed and reinstalled the ice maker while trouble shooting. It was easy to change it out, and works perfectly.

Icemaker works inytermittantly.

I removed cleaned & re-ionstalled the same unit. It started to slowly make ice and then stopped. I repeated the above procedure again and it started to work normally. I will keep the replacement icemaker as a handy spare. I fear it will fail again in the near future.

Icemaker stopped making ice

Removed 3 screws on the bottom of old ice maker in the fridge, slid out old ice maker, disconnected electrical cable,took out old ice maker. Take the plastic tray from bottom of old ice maker install on new ice maker, reconnect cable, slid in place, replace the three screws. About 3 hours later water ran in and new ice maker started to make ice. The only thing I missed was I didn't rinse out new ice maker before installation. If you don't rinse out new ice maker you have to throw away the first full bin of ice due to metallic taste.
