WE HAVE A WHIRLPOOL GOLD REFRIGERATOR, ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO AFTER EMPTYING THE ICE BIN TO GO TO THE BEACH, IT HAS NOT MADE ANY ICE. DRINKING WATER IS STILL GOING TO THE DOOR......????

Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

Can you get me the model number of the inside of the refrigerator section ? its either on one of the side walls or the ceiling .

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Model # XXXXX

okay perfect. open the freezer and there is a red light blinking on the right side. straight across from that is a flap. without covering the hole in the flap press it in. what does the light do ?

CONTINUES TO BLINK

Okay.As strange as this may seem you emitter/receiver has failed. Its not because you emptied the ice its just a coincidence , first try and reset the emitter. unplug the refrigerator for 5 minutes then plug it back in. if the emitter doesn't reset you will need to order and replace it. heres a link to the part. it comes with instructions. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Ice-Level-Control-Board/4389102/921526?modelNumber=GS5SHAXSL00?RCAID=1000065 thanks and best wishes, Bryan
