Ice maker will not fill with water or cycle. It has plenty of water pressure to the water valve. Is it the valve or the motherboard?
You will first want to pull icemaker out and check for a frozen fill tube. If the fill tube is frozen then you will want to clean the tube and replace the water valve. If the fill tube is clear then you will want to check for voltage at the water valve. There should be 120 vac when the unit calls for water. If no voltage then the icemaker is most likely at fault and if it does have power then the water valve is defective and needs to be replaced.
I just installed a water line and it is not getting water to the tray. Do I need a new pump?
You will want to check to make sure that the fill tube that feeds the icemaker is not frozen. If frozen then clear the icemaker line and recheck. If not frozen then you want to make sure that when the icemaker is calling for water that you are getting 120 vac to the water valve. If you are then you would need to replace water valve and if not then new icemaker.
Our ice maker stopped working last week. Just prior to that the ice was very thin walled for about a week, then a number of unusual sounds during the night from the frig.
The ice maker water line flows freely. Would a broken water inlet valve not allow any water to the line downstream of this valve?
Answer Hello Ken. There are separate valves for the dispenser and the icemaker. 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.
