Whirlpool refrigerator not making ice wrf736sdam
« on: March 06, 2020, 06:28:11 PM »

Refrigerator not making ice. The first trip I put it in the service mode. The thermister passed, The water valve worked, the ice box fan fan worked, no ice clogging the air duck. It was 5 degrees in the ice maker box when i arrived. The ice level sensor checked out ok. The only thing was that the icemaker wouldn't go through the harvest so I installed a new icemaker. A day later no ice.


So I went back and now everything is functioning in the service mode including the icemaker. So as of now I told them to let me know if it does or don't work over the weekend. But I am not sure what I am gonna do to it next if it dont. Any suggestions?


Also note that when I got there today the icebox fan was on before I even put it in service mode and the temperature was around 7 degrees.

A bit of advice on this particular design. Once you replace the ice maker, unplug unit from wall for a few seconds. Have experienced more than once where after replacing an ice maker on this design that the ice maker made one dump, stopped and made no more. I work on a lot of these, and after an ice maker installation I always disrupt power for 10 seconds.
