whirlpool refrig ice maker not working


My Whirlpool refrigerator icemaker located in top left of double door refrig (freezer at bottom of refrig) does not always work. Problem seems to be arm that senses level of ice in ice bit. It does not come all the way down when it needs to. Advice?

don't bend the arm, you'll end up breaking some plastic piece in the module. Remove the ice maker and let it thaw out, sometimes ice crystals can build up inside the module and prevent the arm from returning to the on position.

Tks for help from both of you. This to Hawkeye fan -- I grew up in Iowa and assume you were with Amana or Maytag. Thanks again for help.
