After turning on the ice machine, it produces a full bin of ice with no problems. The problem occurs after the ice bin is full. The circulation pump continues to attempt to circulate water from the bin, but there is not enough water in the bin and the circulation pump sucks air and will not shut off, and no water is added to the bin, at which time I cut off the ice maker. I replaced the water circulation pump a couple of years ago. Could it be the water valve, which has never been replaced.

ANSWER Hello Shannon, The water valve W10217918 is probably the issue. I'm surprised you haven't had to change it before since the water valve is the most problematic of all the components on the under the counter ice machine with all of the sedimentation and mineral deposits they are exposed to and the fact that they run almost continuously.
