Ice maker makes few cubes and water comes out door slow. Water lines are not obstructed. Is the soleniod valve shot?
Answer Hello Bill. It sounds like the valve is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. Make sure there is no inline filter causing the issue.
I have water to ice maker but not to door. Is the water valves bad
Answer Hello Jeff,
You can test the water valve 218720500 to see if it is faulty. Using multi-meter check for 120vac to the water valve when the dispenser paddle is depressed. If you have 120vac then disconnect the water line and check to see if water is coming through the valve. If no water then replace the water valve. If no power then you want to check connectors going to the door to make sure that there is no damage to wires. Also check to make sure that the paddle is not broken and that the paddle is making contact to switch for dispensing water.
Water dripping from ice tray.
Answer Hello Rick. Check and see if the icemaker is overfilling. If so, you will need to test and see if the water continues to come in after the power is off from the icemaker to the water valve. If so, you will need to replace the water valve 218720500. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps.http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My water dispenser is not working, though icemaker is "basically" working. Think may have a bad solenoid since water has stopped and icemaker fill tube freezes up over period of time (slow leak0. How can you tell which is correct item AP2114980 or AP2114865? Both are listed as "water valve".
Answer Jim, You have a "dual valve" water inlet system, 218658000 is the main inlet valve and allows water into the fridge water system. 218720500 is the "ice maker fill valve. Were it me, and the fact that you had a seaping/dripping issue to begin with, I would replace both valves. But you could get by with the ice maker fill valve.
