Question and Answers

Q:

Free standing Ice Maker stopped making ice The compressor won't kick on. Don't know if it is a thermostat, circuit board, or compressor issue!

A:

Hello Bubba. I see that you viewed that previous answer that Yadira B. posted in the above response. I provided the tech sheet for this ice maker that you requested in that previous thread. The tech sheet can help you check components in that ice maker. Be sure that you unplug the ice maker or shut off the house circuit breaker to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.

 

If you are getting voltage to the compressor but the compressor is not running, then you could have a problem with the overload or the compressor motor. Note: Follow electrical safety guidelines when checking live voltage. Wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles. Unplug the ice maker or shut off the house circuit breaker to disconnect electrical power as soon as live testing is completed.

 

This ice maker has a thermistor (temperature sensor) in the bin so it will not produce ice if it senses that the bin is full. If you are not getting voltage to the compressor, then you could have a problem with that thermistor or the control board. The tech sheet shows the resistance that you should measure through that thermistor at room temperature (10K ohms -- 10,000 ohms).  You may need to check that thermistor in the bin.

 

These initial tips and the tech sheet may help you fix your problem in that Whirlpool Ice Maker.
