Whirlpool Gold Ice Not Ejecting
« on: January 18, 2009, 11:09:13 AM »

I have a Whirpool Gold with ice in the door which is only 1 1/2 years old and the ice has quit ejecting.  It used to eject sporatically and the ice bin would fill up then the ice wouldn't eject for awhile.  Now the ice has not ejected for the last 24 to 36 hours.  What could be the problem?

If there is ice in the icemaker and it is not ejecting you have a bad icemaker cuber.
Enter your model number in the parts search on the left of this screen and order your icemaker replacement.

My ice maker sometimes gets an ice cube stuck in the ejector. I remove the bucket. I grab my hair dryer and heat the ice maker till it starts moving. Then it magically comes back to life and starts to produce ice once more. I read about it in a service manual provided by AJ our fearless leader. No parts needed. Over the last 2 years this has happened 3 times.
