What is the name of the part I need to make ice when the refridge is making water?
ANSWER Hello Diane,
There are several things that can cause water not come to icemaker. The first thing that you want to do is check to make sure that the fill tube is not frozen. If frozen then clear fill tube and replace water valve. If this checks ok then you would want to pull the cover off the icemaker and on the big gear check to make sure that the pins in the center are not broken. If these check ok then pull the module off the icemaker and check for burnt contacts. If pins are broken or burnt contacts then replace the motor module W10190935 Also do a continuity check across the outer pins and the inner pins. The inner is for the thermostat 627985 and the outer for the heater W10190929. With icemaker being cold the thermostat should read closed and the heater should always read closed. If not then replace the broken component. If this checks ok you can reassembly icemaker and jump contacts t to h and let icemaker cycle. Check for 120vac to the water valve when the icemaker calls for water. This will be whent he fingers of the icemaker reach 11:30 position. If there is power then replace the water valve W10408179. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
