I replaced the mold and stripper arm. After i reinstalled the ice maker the water wouldn't fill the mold. The gears are turning but no water. The parts came with a water fill cup but it was a little different than original. I used the new one. Any ideas?
ANSWER Tom, The fill cup shouldn't be an issue, but did you check the fill tube to make sure it hasn't froze closed ? Make sure the wiring is seated properly and tight at the harness connector. With a multi meter and the test probes inserted into the "V" and "N' Test openings in the control module you should be able to read the resistance of the fill valve solenoid, and wiring to determine if the circuit is complete ( approximately 500 to 1000 ohms) or using a "jumper wire with both ends stripped back 1/2 to 3/4 inch insert the ends into the same openings and the fill valve should activate and fill the mold, if all's OK, This will also confirm if the control module fill contacts have failed. Thanks and Good Luck
