How do you get the plastic water tubing from icemaker off of the water inlet valve?
Answer If your valve is like the one in the picture it has the newer JohnGuest fitting. You have to depress the white ring that goes around the water line against the water valve body, this should release the locking teeth and the line should pull out. The older fitting were just compression nuts that screwed off.

My ice maker stopped working and would like to check parts (water valve solenoid for electric current etc). Besides this part what other parts do you need to check and how do you check?
Answer Hello Mack. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. 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
