I just moved into a new house with a Whirlpool side by side.

Customer Question
I just moved into...

I just moved into a new house with a Whirlpool side by side. The only # I could find is 19707181GD23. Don't know if that's the model # but the ice maker is turned off and I cannot figure out how to turn it on. There is no bar

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I don't It's approximately 3 years old and I can't find a model #

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No, just how to turn on the ice maker

In the freezer
Appliance Technician: ApplianceMAN, Home Appliance Technician replied 11 months ago
Alright to turn on the ice maker you should see that there is a metal flap push this down and that will turn this unit on, you will also need to have the water line hooked to refrigerator.

The only to access the ice is through the door on the outside freezer door or by taking the ice maker completely out.
Appliance Technician: ApplianceMAN, Home Appliance Technician replied 11 months ago
