So to be clear, at this point does the icemaker fill with water? Does water ever flow over the chill plate?
Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If the compressor runs and the plate is not getti8ng cold at all, then the refrigerant has leaked from the sealed system. This is not an easy repair and will require specialized tools and equipment as well as advanced training. To have it professionally repaired, you can expect a cost of about $250-300 + parts. If less than 5 years old, it may be under warranty still. If you post the model and serial number I can check that for you.
If more than 5 years, it will not be covered. If it sat for 3 years, there is probably a leak in the evaporator. The only way to tell is to solder valves on and see what the pressures do. It is a sealed system issue so it will not be an easy, inexpensive fix, in any case.
I would agree. Thank you.
