My icemaker wasn't getting water. The tube in the back that feeds water into the icemaker kept freezing up. The repairman installed a new regulator valve. It worked for a month, then stopped working. He then installed another new one, said the other was defective, no warranty. It now started freezing again, but I've been pulling out the tube and thawing it out with a hair dryer. Now it will freeze up after one day. The icemaker goes through the motions with the arm moving up and down, but no water comes in. Two new valves and a bunch of $$, I'm going to install a new icemaker. Can you tell me which part number I need to order? If you need a serial number, tell me where to find it, because I can't seem to locate it.
ANSWER Hello Old rider. You need to check the temperature in the freezer and see if it is around 0°. If it is colder than 0°, it will cause the issues you are having. It is best for the temperature inside the freezer to be 0 to 4 °. You can test this with a multi-meter with temp TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
