I went to geappliances.com,
FREEZER SECTION parts for model # XXXXX
and here's a diagram of the freezer:
The parts include several different solenoids...
trying to figure out from the diagram - if you can help, we can conclude our conversation!
Here's what I posted previously:
The water feed to the freezer is separate from the water feed that goes to the refrigerator/filter/water dispenser. On the back of the refrigerator you can see two water pipes on either side, teeing off of the copper line. So, water is coming in and freezing inside the plastic tube that goes from the rear of the refrigerator into the reservoir. Of course, once this happens and it is frozen solid, subsequent attempts to inject water result in water spraying all over the kitchen wall!By the way, the water dispenser works fine during these events, as it is a separate line and has nothing to do with the ice maker flow. (I realize this means that our ice cubes are not filtered.) So once the bin is full, water still comes in, and freezes.Since I only see a plastic pipe inside the freezer, and outside is where the plastic tube connects to the tubing, where is the solenoid valve? (inside or outside of the freezer) This, I realize, is the problem - whatever used to control the flow of water is no longer working - but I don't see where it is to replace the part. What does it look like?
