Hello, I havew a Kenmore side by side and the water is not filling the ice tray when the ice maker goes through cycle. I jumped the valve at the module and it opened. What else could it be?
ANSWER Hello G.E.,
If the fill tube isn't frozen up and the water valve operates when energized, the issue has to be in the ice maker. You see, the ice maker tells the water valve when to open and when to close by the use of a thermostat that monitors the cube temperature and a couple of sets of contacts that energize the water inlet valve. From the description of your problem, the ice maker motor module or the complete ice maker assembly will require replacement to restore the units' normal operation. This is, of course, a general description of the ice makers' operation.Without the model number, there is no way to go into detail or list any part numbers since all parts in the appliance industry are model specific.
