For Samsung Water Inlet Valve (Part Number: AP4146979)

My son purchased this unit a couple of years ago and never hooked up the icemaker. Just recently he did but no water is going to the icemaker. The water line is good (checked that twice). It's like the valve isn't pumping the water up or the icemaker isn't calling for it. Would it be more likely the valve is bad or should I be looking at the icemaker itself?

John for Model Number Samsung RB195BSBB

ANSWER John, It's usually a faulty fill valve, It's a quick, easy test to determine which is at fault. Disconnect the wires from the fill valve, and attach your multi meter probes to the wires. Press and hold the rubber "test" button on the bottom of the icemaker control for three(3) seconds, the ice maker should start to rotate. When the ice maker tray returns to the horizontal position, the voltage should appear on the wires at the valve. No voltage indicates a faulty ice maker control, voltage on the wires indicate a faulty fill valve. Here's some meter usage information if you need it [http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html]. Thanks
