I replace water and Ice maker solenoid valve still not getting water my water dispenser and ice maker. Can you help me on this problem. Thanks.
The most likely cause for the unit not getting water to the dispenser or to the icemaker would be a faulty water filter head. The water filter head is part number WR17X11618.
see my other post. OK I check for power to the valve. The water dispenser has power when I push the fill button. The ice maker has none. So I jumped the water dispenser to the ice maker and when I pushed the button the tray began to fill up. I assume this means the valve is working fine but whatever triggers the ice maker to power up the valve is bad. Can you tell how to check the ice maker and the circuit board. The green light is on the ice maker. I have filled the ice tray and will see if it will make ice cubes. It did in the past after I shut off the continuing running water. Thanks for all your help. I think with a little more help I can figure this out. How about the overfill lever on the maker that senses the ice bucket being full?
Answer Hello Kglow. Unplug the unit for about 10 minutes, plug up the unit and During the first 15 seconds that power
is first applied to the icemaker, the Service
Diagnostic Test mode may be entered. The
service mode is entered by pushing the feeler
arm from the “out” position to the “in” position
and back again 3 times and only 3 times within
15 seconds. The service diagnostic mode consists
of a harvest cycle followed by a water fill. The
harvest cycle is entered immediately, regardless
of icemaker temperature or arm position. While in the harvest cycle in the service mode,
the heater will remain on for a minimum of 20
seconds. The water fill cycle will initiate the
first fill (5.1 seconds) without waiting for the mold
to “prechill”. Only one water fill occurs during
the service mode, whether the thermistor has
reached 39.2°F (4°C) or not. The icemaker will
exit the service diagnostic test on its own and
enter the normal freeze cycle.
NOTE: When replacing an icemaker, the Power
On test will probably occur since the mold
temperature will be above 50°F (10°C). While
in the power on test, the Service Diagnostic test
can be initiated and will override the power on
