Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Ice maker in my Whirlpool side by side wont cycle completely.

\015 Hello, I have been wrestling with this ice maker for a few months now. The problem is it wont always cycle completely and frequently gets "stuck" at the point where it should heat the tray, rotate the armature, and kick my drink coolers out. I have taken the unit out, completely disassembled it, cleaned it, and put it back in. It works for a dozen cycles or so but eventually ends up as described above. I'm yanking it out every few days, letting it "thaw" and popping it back in until it stops again. I am a tinkerer and stubbornly tight with my cash so any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!\015

I have a Whirlpool side by side refrigerator with a new ice maker. The ice maker works fine but will not drop the ice. If I cycle the arm off/on (up/down) then it dumps the ice a few minutes later. Otherwise, the ice just sits in the tray. The ice maker is Whirlpool #4317943. Any suggestions on why it won't drop the ice or what to test?

Hi, I have an Amana SBDE522V side by side with ice maker. Since I replaced a shorted heater defrost element some months ago the ice maker stopped making ice and the fridge temp alarm regularly goes off. I've finally got sick of it and checked the book and it says the ice maker wont go if the freezer is not cold enough. So I've checked that and the freezer is only running about -5, my 20 year old Kelvinator runs better than -25 so I guess thats a good starting point. Any ideas what to check next?
