The Whirlpool Conquest side-by-side refrigerator has a built-in ice machine that makes ice several times each day as needed. The ice maker was designed with an automatic shutoff that may stick and keep the ice maker from running as it should. You may have also manually turned off the ice maker and need to start it up again. The ice maker in the Whirlpool Conquest will continue to make ice as long as you turn the device on properly.
Open the freezer door and locate the ice maker, which is positioned above the dispenser on the door.
Push the ice production rate switch on the ice maker to either "Normal" or "Maximum," based on your preference or need. The Whirlpool Conquest ice maker will create ice seven to nine times a day when switched to "Normal," and 10 to 14 times a day when switched to "Maximum."
Press the small, thin wire to the side of the ice maker down until you hear a click. The wire sits above the ice bin.
Turn off the ice maker by pulling up on the wire until you hear a click.
Tips & Warnings
- Turn the freezer temperature control knob to a higher number if the Whirlpool Conquest ice maker does not make ice fast enough for your needs. Whirlpool suggests moving the freezer temperature control knob in half number increments and waiting approximately 24 hours to check the speed of ice production.
