no ice is being made. I can get water
I hear something moving, but there is no ice in the bin.
I have an errand to run. Will need to continue in about an hour. I hope this is satisfactory.
I placed ice into to bin to see if the "auger" motor is operational. It did dispense the ice from the bin. I forgot to mention that I had already changed the filter. The ice bar does occasionally raise, but no ice.
I managed to burn my finger on piece of metal under the ice forming tray the other day.
Is that too much information
I already unplugged the machine for several hours yesterday.
If the fill tube is frozen, how do I defrost the frozen area. Can I use hair dryer?
A little confused here. You said if I can blow through the hose then it's frozen? And if i cannot blow, then what?
Sorry, the kids have been keeping me busy.
Question: How do I go about disconnecting the hose?
Cut the line? Un-couple the connection?
Will I need I need new coupling? Or will I be able to re attach
I am asking all these questions, as I am going to be the DIY gal here.
Is there a diagram for me to follow?
Thanks for the video.
Will get back to you!
Finally managed to extract the tubing from the water intake valve.
Blew air into hose. no blockage.
Turned the refrigerator back on and reset the ice pump handle.
Got at least 1 quart of water from the dispenser, so I know there is water available.
Waiting the proscribed 24 hours for ice production.
If this doesn't work, I guess I will be ordering a new water intake valve?
Hopefully this will be my last questions. Which part should I be ordering?
I know they are the same part number. That is why I am confused. Perhaps this will help. These are web pages for the two items that have pictures of the parts in question.
Did you look at the images?
One says ice maker and water valve.
the other says water valve assembly.
If you look at this website, these items are also listed at different prices.
I purchased the water valve part number, replaced the part and the ice maker is still not working.
Should I consider purchasing the icemaker kit Part Number: WR30X10093.
I just tried an experiment with the icemaker. I poured some water into the well and behold, ice was made.
Would the replacement of icemaker kit resolve my issue of not being able to get water into the icemaker?
What do I need?
Checked the hose.
Replaced the ice maker.
Still not making ice.
Any suggestions as to how to resolve my issue?
Before making another purchase, we just checked triple checked to if all tubes are clear. And they are.
Going to wait another 24 hours to see if we make any ice before another co$t.
