Another Whirlpool ice maker repair
« on: June 18, 2012, 11:45:57 AM »
Model: GS6SHAXMQ00
Serial: SR0630363
MFG DATE: 02/04
TYPE: 26SSA

I've searched and followed troubleshooting guides throughout this site and others. My icemaker isn't making any ice. My kids ae begging to be it fixed. Me to as my boys go through ice like its oxygen.  Ive tried the following. I check the resistance on the water solenoid valve and also directed ac power straight to the solenoid and water valve works.  I've jumpered the T and H port and the ice maker turns. Did diagnostic and solid light for 5 seconds meaning everything is good. Even though it's not makng any ice.  The only thing differ I've found out is when I pull the jumper wire before 10 o'clock it stops at 10 o'clock and does nothing. I reinserted the jumper and tried it again pulled the jumper wire before it hits 12 o'clock and the water starts to fill around the 2 o clock mark.  S I know I'm getting water. I don't know what else to do. I'm thinking it's the thermostat but I don't know how to troubleshoot that one. Please help! Thanks.

The ice mold thermostat is pretty easy to replace. You get the module off there then remove the housing the brains live in then you can pop out the ice mold thermostat and replace it.
Only Sears has it:

Sears is not the only one that has it as Reg already pointed out.

Sears does not support our site and treats their technicians poorly.

Besides the link Reg posted it can also be found here, part # 627985
