The Whirlpool refrigerator’s Ice Maker is not workingBrand: Whirlpool
A customer contacted us with a complaint that the Whirlpool refrigerator’s ice maker is not working. Whirlpool refrigerators often use contact tracks instead of switches for various functions of the Ice Maker. These contact tracks perform functions such as heating the Mold and supplying voltage to the Water valve for water filling. However, we occasionally encounter issues with this design, particularly contact corrosion on the contact group.
Refrigerator Whirlpool ice maker is not working: Fix
In this case, repairs are possible by either replacing the contact group module or the entire ice maker. The price difference between the contact group and a new ice maker is usually not significant, and some customers prefer to install a brand new ice maker. Replacing an ice maker is typically not very complicated. However, for this specific refrigerator model, replacing the ice maker requires removing the entire assembly, including the convection fan, auger motor, and the plastic frame, which can be a bit challenging if you lack experience. Therefore, we recommend reaching out to professionals for assistance. Feel free to call us for help.
