Title: Old Whirlpool fridge will not run after ice maker removed
Post by: Washaman on January 05, 2010, 05:45:32 PM
This fridge is either 20 or 30 years old. Owner removed ice maker and threw it in the trash because it wasn't making ice for a long time. Next day when he checked it it was not working. The trash man already came so no more ice maker. Question: Is this tied into the power for the compressor?

Model EHD221MTNR1

Yep. The ice box won't run with out it. But you can buy an alternative part.

Looks like you just plug it in? I am sure he would rather buy this than spend $250 on a used refigerator.

Just plug it in and mount it where the ice maker went
