My icemaker is a FSP replacement in an old refrigerator in my rental house.
The inlet valve opens to let air pass (me blowing through the valve) when I give the solenoid 120 volts, but when I have it hooked up to the house plumbing, water diesn't pass through the valve. A plumber the tenant hired replaced the original icemaker hookup with a plain 1/4" pipe hookup (no icemaker tap off valve with a tiny hole), and I don't know if that would make a difference.
Do you know from my description if the valve should work OK with the plumbing like that or if valves can stick with just the normal water pressure when the valve is worn out?
ANSWER Hello. Mr coffee. If the unit does not open and let water pass through with power applied to it, you will need to order and replace the water valve 4318047 on the unit. The new water line should not be to much pressure to the water valve.
