The water valves are good and it will dispense water but it will put water in the ice tray , what needs to be replaced ?
Answer C. Witt,
The unit uses a dual water valve so that when you push for dispenser it will bring water in from one valve but the icemaker valve may not open to put water in. You will want to check to make sure that the fill tube is not frozen. If it is then replace the water valve and also check to make sure that you are getting 120 vac to the valve. If you are then the valve is faulty and would need to be replaced.
Before cleaning a perfectly operating refrigerator the cold control knob was turned to "off''. The compressor and fans, etc. went off, but interior lights stayed on. After 5 minutes or so (before cleaning), the unattended refrigerator clicked (or popped), the 20 amp home panel breaker tripped, and the refrigerator interior lights went off. The home breaker (and a substitute breaker) instantly trip when they are reset, so the refrigerator has apparently developed some sort of short (while off) that causes the breaker to trip and prevents the refrigerator from operating. Any ideas?
Answer Hello Jim,
You should consider where the unit was being cleaned and check in that area. If the inside was being cleaned, there is the possibility of the water getting into a control or light socket causing the issue. If you were cleaning behind the unit, there is the possibility of a wire being knocked off of the fan motor, compressor, or other component and can be touching chassis ground. You should be able to pin down the problem by putting an ohm meter across the plug, (of course with the unit unplugged), and one by one, unplug components. When the short disappears on the meter, the circuit has been located.
