I checked the connection of the water supply line from the source water. It is NOT a self piercing valve. It is solder on. Got anything else for me?
Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.
can you pull the water line off the back of the refrigerator where it connects at the top where it goes into the freezer and put it in a bucket them turn the icemaker back on to see if it drips into the bucket? How much water is dripping into the the icemaker? Is the steady drip enough to overfill it to make it drop into the ice auger?
Okay the icemaker is bad, you will need to replace it you shouldnt get 3/4 of a cup of water that's too much water going into the icemaker, and if there is no water dripping from the line it's not the valve it's the icemaker, the motor in the icemaker has slowed down so as it cycles it takes too long to get past the water cycle therefore it fills up too much and it will drip down, you need to replace your icemaker unfortunately, give you a little hint, these icemaker's online are around $100.00 at the cheapest you can buy the whole kit at Lowe's for $49.00 I bought one there yesterday exact icemaker, it even comes with a new valve and new water lines it's the whole kit, but really all you would need to replace would be the icemaker out of the kit but it's a good idea to go ahead and change the valve will you got it anyway, icemaker kit number at Lowe's is he ECKMF94, and here is a link to look at it,
