I recently ask a question about my water dispenser and ice maker on my refrigerator. My valve was working properly before I fixed the leak. I am concerned about putting the wire back correctly. does it not matter.
As far as making sure the right connector is on the right solenoid it does matter. If you do not put them back on properly the ice and water will not work and you may have water coming out when the dispenser is calling for water out of the icemaker. Your Yellow and orange connection wil go to the single valve, the blue and orange to the water valve and other to the icemaker.
I disconnected the wiring from my water dispenser to fix a leak. I no longer have the leak but my ice maker does not make ice . However I do get drinking water out . I thought I put the wires back correctly but maybe not. Can you help
Answer Hello David. 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. 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
Water leaking slowly from area wher water tubes enter/exit blue part on bottom area of fridge. It seems like the tube goes into a plastic connector of some sort and that is where water is trickling from intermittently. What do I have to do? Thanks!
Answer Hello Jeff,
You need to turn the water off to the unit until you can troubleshoot for the leak. If it is a water line leaking, this can normally be corrected by cutting the leaking part off and reconnecting the line to the unit. If it is the water valve, which also not uncommon, the valve WR57X10026 will require replacement.
Although my ice maker is turning, no water is entering the tray. I removed a piece of ice from the water tube but still no running water. Could it be the water valve?
Answer Hello Joe,
I would put a test meter on the wires to the water valve and see if at any point in the ice makers cycle, if 120Vac is going to the water valve. If it is, check for ice in the fill tube. If there is no ice build-up in the fill tube, replace the water inlet valve WR57X10026.
Purchased part number AP2071738. I know how to install 2 of the four hoses that go to the fridge but not the other two. Do you have a schematic or can you tell me which hoses go in which holes? They are color coded.
Answer Hello Chris. Orange on the valve is the hose going to the filter. Black is the hose coming from the filter. You can not mix the other two hoses as one is 1/4" (to icemaker) and the other is 5/16" (to dispenser) on the water valve WR57X10026.
I am getting no water and no ice. I changed filiter and now I get ice but no water what do I do?
Answer Hi Daniele. Look at the water lines coiled up behind the drawers in the fresh food section. If this water tank is frozen remove it and thaw it out under the sink in warm water. Unhook the waterline connector under the freezer door by pushing the outer rings in as you pull out on the water line. Put the line from the cavity into a bucket and call for water. Does water come into the bucket now ? If not then consider replacing the water valve part # WR57X10026 if you get 120 vac to the water valve and no water comes out. Find the electrical wiring diagram in the toe kick plate or in the controls. This will show you the correct valve solenoid to test with the meter. Thank You.
