Your dispenser needs to be serviced on a regular basis to prevent damage from ice buildup, rust build up, corrosion or moisture buildup.
Your ice dispenser has a three wire control panel that controls the refrigeration cycle and the ice flow from the cold holding reservoir, the cold holding tank and the ice bucket. The dispenser is powered by an electric motor located on the bottom of the dispenser bucket. The control panel contains a control switch, reset button and a warning light. If your refrigerator ice machine needs repairs, follow these steps to help fix the problem. You can avoid freezing to death and heart disease by keeping your Whirlpool Ice Dispenser Clean.
The first thing you need to do is check to see if there is any debris inside the ice bucket. If there is, scrape it out with a screwdriver. Once you have cleaned it out, replace it with fresh ice. Now, check to see if there is debris in the ice reservoir. If so, remove the debris and put it back inside the reservoir to allow the ice to cool down while it is being refilled.
Next, check the controls on the control panel. Make sure all the controls are functioning properly. Make sure your ice maker is turned on and is operating correctly. Check to make sure the temperature in the refrigerator is not too low or too high. The ice bucket should be at a temperature of around 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If your ice is not at this temperature, try turning down the temperature to about 65 degrees. Now, let the rice sit for about two minutes before you open the door of the refrigerator to allow the ice to slowly melt and drain from the bucket.
Next, clean the ice reservoir by removing any leftover ice that may be sitting on top of the bucket. and pouring it into another bucket. Once it is drained, empty it again and replace with fresh ice. It is important to drain the reservoir when the ice starts to form clumps because the clumps will affect the ice-dispersion process. When the ice has drained, put it back into the bucket, close the door to prevent ice from melting. Now that the water is drained, set the control panel back to its normal operating position.
If the ice is still not draining, run the water on the condenser to ensure it is working properly and make sure the ice is draining properly. After that, shut off the electricity to the appliance and put the ice on ice. This is the last time you will want to use ice that is still dripping water in your refrigerator.
