Customer Question
The ice maker on...

The ice maker on our refrigerator quit working. the water still works but no ice. Right before it stopped working, the ice had an odd taste. A sign on the door flashed "change filter" There was no filter in it. Apparently, there was never one installed....

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

It's a Whirlpool, we bought it in October of last year...new...I don't have the model number with me...It has 2 doors and 2 drawers.

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

Yes

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