The instruction sheet that came with them showed and stated that "The Openings Must Be In Front Outside Corners Of Air Separator". Your diagram shows that the openings must be to the rear outside corners of the air separator. I tried to remove the "L" inserts, but now they are stuck. What do you recommend that I do now?

A:

Tom, the opening should be as shown in this diagram toward the outside. If the inserts are stuck, it could be due to some icing. Try setting somthing warm on top of them for a few minutes to see if it will help loosen them up or use a hair dryer but be very careful not to melt them or the liner itself when using a hair dryer. I hope this will help you.

Hi Tom,

Thank you for your question. It is concerning when the icemaker is not functioning correctly. The refrigerator does not show a filter and with the dirty ice, the inlet water tube could have gone defective and placed particles in the water mold. This would have also caused the water valve to clog up. I would recommend that the water supply first be checked and check the water valve to see if the valve is just clogged.

If this checks out there is a few things to be checked at the icemaker. Check if the mold lining is intact and not peeling off. If you find this is the case here is the link for the part, Whirlpool Refrigerator Model KTRS21MFWH00 icemaker kit .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this post.

I removed the ice maker, and underneath I see a long silver u-shaped metal tube. On one end, where the tube connects to the motor housing, it looks burned and blackish in color. What caused this and what do I do next?

Can I purchase the heater calrod separately and replace it, or do I need to replace the entire icemaker kit? I'm trying to reduce cost.

A:

I understand the cost cutting reasons. I checked the cost of calrod and mold part and it is 40.00 dollars and if the module is burnt, which is likely, it costs 95.00. the complete icemaker kit is 132.00 dollars. You could take the front cover off and look at the module and the spots where the calrod connects to the module. If the contacts and connects and the connectors are burned get the kit. If you order the calrod order silicone grease pn number 542638. Let me know what you decide, if you do not mind.

A:

The spots where the calrod connects to the module are discolored, like they were burned. There is an appliance parts store in town that has the icemaker kit for $107.00. I'll purchase it there. Why do you think that this occured? (I purchased the frig new 15 years ago).

A:

There is silicone grease to protect the connections and keep the moisture off. The silicone just disolved and moisture got in. If you can get the kit for 107, that is a good deal. Good luck with it.

Thank you for submitting your question. You'll need to remove the screws around key #23 and underneath that will be key #31 (air return). You won't have to go that far into the unit to replace the part. If you require further assistance, please reply back to this thread with more details. Thank you for choosing Manage My Life.
