Hi Bryan - I never took it out of the freezer. the light is green. i did turn it off, waiting about 15 seconds, and turned it back on. that was about 30 or so minutes ago. still no water. i did remember to turn the water on ;-). it is not turning
It's been a while since I paid attention ..... i have heard it cycle recently. i'll keep an eye and ear on it tonight and see what happens. Thank you for your help so far!
the ice cube tray had a slight amount of water in it after but wasn't sure if that was just from a freezer defrost cycle. nothing has happened since.
well, if the valve worked its not great news, it means the ice maker from sitting so long has corroded contacts inside and isn't sending the power to the valve. in other words the ice maker will need to be replaced unfortunately. I hate giving you bad news I really do
you've done such a good job and hate to see you have to replace it but thats what you need , its an after market ice maker so you will need to remove it and get a number off it to get a replacement. sorry for the bad news. thanks Bryan
Hi Bryan - I never got back to you to tell you that I fixed the ice maker. The modular connector at the back of the freezer had 1 pin that appeared to be further back in the connector. I pull it out with needle nose plyers and reconnected the ice maker. water immediately filled the ice maker and it has worked perfectly since!
