The ice maker does not get water for ice but the water dispenser works fine. Does that mean the ice maker needs to be replaced?
Answer Hello Jerry. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Please provide detailed installation instructions.
Answer Hello Robert. To remove the old icemaker, remove the bucket and turn off the power. Then remove the two screws securing the icemaker to the side wall of the freezer. Lift the icemaker out and unplug the wire going to the icemaker. Install the new icemaker 241798201 and make sure the fill tube is in the cup on the new icemaker.
