I have a LG refrigerator and the icemaker is not working

This answer was rated:

I have a LG refrigerator and the icemaker is not working properly. I have to reset the unit frequently because the water will not fill the tray after a tray is dumped. Do I need to replace the icemaker or is the problem somewhere else?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your LG is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: My model is LFX28968ST, and I have had it for about 18 months.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Not that I of.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your ice maker. It sounds like when you do the reset its activating the water inlet valve to fill the unit with water. Which may mean your water inlet valve needs to be replaced.
