We have a Whirlpool refrigerator model GI5SVAXVQ00 and the ice maker stopped worked. I turned it off and then back on, pulled out the bin, and made sure the arm was not stuck up. What do I check next?

Is there ice in the ice maker tray but it won't cycle the ice out?

Put a thermometer in your ice maker compartment and see what the temperature is reading after it sits awhile. It has to be 10 degrees or less at all times or the ice maker WILL NOT cycle.:)

If your temperature is good, Read post #5 on HOW TO JUMP T and H to do a FORCE CYCLE in this thread:

Here's the ice maker for your model:

Let us know what you find.

Thank you Jake for the reply. No ice in the bin so I will check the temperature and if it is good I will do the forced cycle.
