whirlpool gold ice maker stopped working
« on: October 02, 2013, 09:07:49 AM »
2 days ago our ice maker stopping working.  I noticed water in the tray below the ice dispenser in the door as there is a drain hole from the ice bin.  I checked the temperature in the freezer today, 1 degree and in the refrig was 53 degrees.  The refrig is only 2 yrs old and this is the second time the ice maker quit.  Previously, it was under warranty and the whole ice maker was replaced.  Is there any checks I can do?  model # GI7FVCXWYOO.   What happen to the refrigs that lasted 20+ yrs?

There 40 years old now and still working.The problem today is they are more complicated and you have one of them.That being said that 53 degree temperature in refrigerator is off.You should be around 37.May want to watch this thing as the temp. is off for the ref.How did you measure this temps?

I have a IR Thermometer gun to check temps on A/C units.   What would cause the refrig temp to be 53 degrees?  It was set at 38, just lowered it to 33 to see what happens.  Is the freezer (bottom drawer) and refrig separate cooling? The freezer is 1 degree.  A week or so ago my wife opened the freezer and there was ice crystals all over the top of the food.  I think that was from my kids didn't shut it all the way.  Was I correct or was that the sign of this problem?

Refrigerator gets its cooling from freezer.Make sure all fans are working look at the one in freezer and by compressor and all light are going off when you close door and see if there is any frost on the back panel in freezer.May have to wait a day to see if temp.goes back to normal if you don't  see anything.Having door left open a long time can build up ice behind panel in freezer causing this.
