whirlpool refrigerator model # XXXXX Ice maker problems:

During the ice making process, there seems to be a hesitation as it makes the 360% turn and then the arms that kick the ice get blocked by the ice cubes as it is moving them up.

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today. lets get started.


this means the ice maker mold heater isnt working. the mold has a heater in it that comes on to help release the ice , the heater is shown here in the bottom of the mold,

either the heater has failed or the thermostat, the problem is its most like damaged the ice maker module in the process, replacing the ice maker is the way to go. if you take your old one to lowes they sell replacement ice maker kits for around $59.00, hope this helps, thanks Bryan
