I have a Model Number: WSF26C3EXF01 Ice maker not working
« on: February 14, 2019, 09:00:22 PM »

Hi All new to forum.

I have a WSF26C3EXF01  Whirlpool fridge.
The Ice maker stopped and will not make Ice.

I have replaced the 2 optics boards in the ice maker door. Red led comes on for 10 minutes then goes out.
I have replaced the Ice maker still no Ice. (not getting Ac volts on the connector pins 1 and 2 to the icemaker on doorr.
I have replaced the main control board (Used)
Checked the voltage on the main control board P3-3 to P1-1 and no Ac voltage.
I did a voltage check on the main control board see attached.
first column red is old board and second column red is new board. Same results same voltage.

Water dispenser works
No clogs.

Also took of cover to Icemaker module and checked L and N for voltage and no ac volts.

Put jumper wire in T and H nothing no icemaker movement

So I'm not getting ac voltage on the main board P3-3 and P1-1.

Can someone help before I dump this fridge.

Its just 5 years old and have had 4 service calls when under warranty that ran out this past may.

UPDATE

Well I see many views but no help/responses for my icemaker not working.

Well I was able to get the ice maker working again and never thought it would be this problem with a 5 year old fridge.

Looks to me like a faulty control board or a connection with control board. if the board is bad I'm sure it'll do it again. It's obvious that the L1 and neutral comes out of that board P3 P1 connections

Harold

thanks for reply.

This is the icemaker from HELL. LOL

Well I replaced everything from ice maker/both optics infrared boards in the icebucket area on door. Replaced the dual water valve/replaced and tried 3 control boards, and still no Ice.
So i was checking voltage on control board and no AC 120v on the p1-pin 1 to p3-pin 3 no ac volts 120v.
So I was of course not getting any voltage to the plug on the ice maker door.

I rang out the black wire from door plug back to the control board and there was continuity.

It was bothering me no return white wire any place.


So I saw on a post some where to check the wiring on bottom where it comes from the back to the front and  into the left door.
I peeled back the braid and guess what 2 broken wires and 1 was the white wire nd a grey with a red stripe also broken.

So I soldered them back up and heat shrinked them put braid back over and re-taped with electrical tape. put all back together and guess what.

I know have Ice.

All the parts I bought were all returnable especially the mother board $350.00 from repairclinic.com.

So 5 weeks no ice - no cost- but some time and some brain damage seeking out the problem.

I will try to post a picture of the wires.

thanks Bob

There should be a recall on all the fridges with this problem a safety and fire hazard with that white wire like that if it makes contact with the metal on fridge potential it will bring 120 volts AC to the metal casing making it the return rail for 120 volts.

I called Whirlpool last week before I knew about this problem with mine and told them nothing but problems 5 service calls in 5 years and the icemaker working on and off when it wants to. They just blew me off and gave me a # to call a Certified repairman.

Great customer service!!!
