Ice maker still not working?
« on: March 08, 2011, 07:22:50 PM »
Whirlpool Gold Series Refrigerator:
Mod: GS6SHAXMB00
Ser: SR4054839
Man Date: 10/04
Type 26SSA

If you read my last thread my ice maker had stopped working. Well, I got a new ice maker (out of another fridge that had never been used) put it in and and it fired up and filled with water and froze. But thats it. It won't dump. Any ideas?

ice freezes at 32 but ice mold tstat don't kick till 25 or lower. Sometimes simply cleaning the condenser coils can get her going.

Make sure it cold enought....-0 in the freezer. then check the Ice bin make sure it is lined up stright that the opitics can shoot thru it.... if both  are OK ... then I would replace the  optics, part # 4389102
Check the Basics first!!! Read the Manual !!!Buy the tech a Beer!!!
