Currently I have no ice or water filling the ice maker. However, I do have water at the dispenser.
At Appliance Parts Pros advice, here is what I have done so far:
1. Replaced the ice maker D7824708Q
2. Replaced the inlet valve 12544002
3. Replaced the secondary valve 12002193
4. Removed the fill tube and inspected for cracks and freezing
5. Jumped the ice maker with 16 gauge wire i.e. H and T terminals
By questions is what's next? When I jumped the ice maker am I suppose to hear something? Should the motor engage? What should I expect? Would something lead be to believe that the ice maker is bad?
I am curious as to what you suggest In the next couple of days I am going to test both of the replacement valves with a multimeter. Perhaps one of the solenoids is bad? Interestingly enough, my old valves test between 200 and 500 ohms, which means I did not have to replace either valve.
I will await your advice.
ANSWER Hello Bob. It sounds like your not getting power to the icemaker. Test the wires going to the icemaker and make sure there is 120 volts there. If not, look for bad wiring or bad connections.
