How Do you cycle the ice maker?
Answer Hello Anthony,
To advance this icemaker you will pull the front cover off and useing a small flat blade screwdriver turn the small wheel counter clockwise. Once it has be turned a little the unit should continue on its own.
When the ice maker cycles and runs water in the water keeps running. What do I need to replace?
Answer Hello Cattle,
The water valve is the most likely cause but it could possibly have stuck contacts in the icemaker control head. You could disconnect water valve harness and check to see if the water stops. If it does not then you would need to replace the valve.
Our ice maker is making ice, but overflows into the bottom of the freezer. What are the possible causes?
Answer Hello Jerry. If the unit is overflowing, you will need to order and replace the water valve 218832401 on the unit.
Water not going to the ice maker threw the tube but goes to the door.
Answer Hello David. Check and see if the fill tube is frozen and clogged on the unit. If so, thaw it out and replace the water valve on the unit. If the fill tube is not frozen, You will cycle the icemaker and test for power at the water valve. If there is power there, and no water, replace the water valve. If the icemaker does not cycle, replace the icemaker on the unit. 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
My icemaker will not make ice (it does go through the cycle) and we get a large block of ice on the floor of the freezer. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Answer Hello Wayne. Check and make sure the fill tube is not frozen and see if the icemaker cycles and sends power to the water valve. If so, replace the valve. If it does not cycle, replace the icemaker. As for the ice on the floor, the drain is clogged and will need to be cleaned out. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
