hi how is the temp in the freezer?
do you notice any water leaking?
hi if the freezer is cold enough then a few things could be happening ,ive seen the plastic tube at the back of the fridge get hot and brittle and crack,so when it goes to fill the icemaker it just sprays out the back instead of the icemaker,not necessarily enough to cause it to leak out the front,if your able to i would pull fridge out and check the plastic tubing
valve could be faulty,even though its a dual valve one solenoid could be faulty,its gets 120 volts when filling
also at the back you can pull the ice maker fill tube hose out at top right and make sure fill tube is not frozen
ive had quite a few cracked water lines,definately check that
if all those ok icemaker may be faulty(not to likely) not energizing solenoid,but anythings possible
let me know any problems
I checked the rubber hose and it was clear. The water supply tot the water output on the freezer doors works fine. I think I have a bad solenoid. Do you know wher I can get oen In Reno, NV or where I can order one to replace the old one on the backof the freezer. I think I had this problem once before eyars ago and it looks like I have it again. The flipper want ot work but without any water feeding into the ice tray all I get is nothing.
you can get one here,order it online if you want
I pulled the refrigerator back from the wall and no water was seen indicating that everything is intact in the water flow system. The following was recommended by you to fix the refrigerator and i have a question. "Icemaker water inlet valve for water and ice through the door, with 2 coils & outlets, and multi-position solenoids. Requires hose type water line connection.Recommended related item(s): 225128,1190" I noticed a long black aluminum plate on the back of the refrigerator. Do I remove this plate in order to replace the above noted ite, (water inlet valve). If not where is the water inlet valve located. Any chances of get a drawing of the location of this item?
the valve is on the bottom near the compressor in the bottom corner,looks like that picture
if you have the fridge out that panel has tubes going up to the icemaker inlet tube,did you take that off and see if it was plugged? frozen solid?
I ordered the part you recommended (the water valve). Is there any tricky about replacing the old valve and outting in the new one. I looked at the old valve and it appears to be held on by two hex screws and there are some wire connections. Any recommendations to make this exchange easier?
