I had asked previously about a water valve for my fridge when the problem was only slow water flow from the dispenser. It seems now I have 2 problems. The dispenser flow is still very slow but now the ice maker has quit working completely. No water gets to the ice maker at all. Do I still need the 218832401 part or something else?
You will want to make sure that the water pressure to the refrigerator is good and you will also want to make sure that the water filter for the unit is good. Low water pressure can cause the water valve to not seat properly when closing and can cause the fill tube in the freezer that supplies the icemaker to clog with ice. The water pressure to the unit or the filter can cause this to occur. If the water pressure is good and the filter is good then you would want to replace the water valve 218832401.
