there is a real cheap fix for the whirlpool /kitchen-aid even has a service pointer out on the repair .
the service pointer is dated Jan 2006.
here is a link the parts info.
and here is the service pointer .
Can't believe it's that simple or that the "fix" has been out there since 2006. I will definitely accept your answer in short order here.
I was watching the NY Times Square New Year's Eve ball drop and did not check for an answer until this morning.
This repairman worked for the company that sold me all my appliances and went out on his own. I'm in a quandary as to whether I ask him to come back and fix the ice maker or find someone else.
Any opinion? And again, many thanks for the repair info. Carol
I'm going to accept, to make sure you get paid for the invaluable info. And then hope that you'll be able to post a reply as to what to do about asking the technician to return for the repair.
Again, Whrlp Master Tech, you're the best!! ~Carol
