Yeah, that didn't fix it. It seems the stirrup solenoid is not working. How do I know if it's the solenoid that gone bad or an electronic circuit that controls the solenoid that's gone bad?
If I choose to replace the solenoid, how do I get to it, it's all the way in the back of the ice maker compartment? Any manuals or instructions?
Ok, I have the trim piece out, the harness is disconnected, I can pry the tab away from the left side panel and the rear icemaker assembly comes loose, but the actually ice making part that hangs down from the top of the icemaker compartment interferes with the removal of the now loose assembly at the back.
Do I have to remove the ice making assembly first, and if so, does the water need to be turned off? (please say no)
Whew, it's not easy getting this monster out of the wall to turn the water off, glad to hear that.
However, how do you remove the icemaker assembly? There's a tab at the top in front of it, but that doesn't seem to loosen anything.
Thanks for the help. I want to ensure I can get to the solenoid before spending $65 on a new one.
Woohoo! You won't believe this, but the metal pin that connects the solenoid plunger to the plastic stirrup had worked itself out of place. Once I reinserted the pin and reassembled the whole thing, it works like a champ.
Thanks very much.
No problem. I'm glad you got it all working again either way. You have a great rest of the day!
