Water works fine. Ice in ice bin turns into a block of ice and it seems that some water may be dripping into the ice bin and the freezing everything.
Answer Joe, You're on the right track, A leaking or "seaping" water valve, could cause the issue you described. When you perform the repair, make sure you "flush" the water supply tube before you connect it to the new fill valve, and you may want to consider this part instead WR57X10026, since there are two valves involved, and it'll be very difficult to determine which valve is leaking.
How do you test the water inlet valve for ice maker
Answer Hello Brian. Test for power coming to the water valve. If there is power, and no water is coming out, you will need to replace the water valve WR57X10024. 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 is leaking where the hose goes into the black fitting pictured above. I pushed it in and pulled on it but it still leaks though it is secure. Is this common? Suggestions?
Answer Hello Johnny,
Try cutting off about 1/4 of an inch of the line. If the line has an indentation where it was installed before, it will not seal in a John Guess fitting. If this doesn't correct the seal, the valve will have to be replaced.
Ice is blocking fill tube in ice maker for GE Profile TFX28PBDAWW; the cold water tap works fine. From previous questions, it appears that I need to replace the water valve. Question is which one, or both since there are two listed; and either way, how do I access the valve(s); they appear to be buried alongside the compressor. Thanks!
Answer Hi Dick. Remove power. Remove the units back. The water valve mount bracket is held in place with a 1/4" screw. The tubing is both , 1/4 " and 5/16". The water supply cannot be kinked while pushing back into place. The fill tube will twist 1/4 -turn and pull out from the back. Rinse under the sink and dry tube completely with a blow dryer. The water valve is part # WR57X10024. Use a coil cleaning brush to clean the condenser coils with while you are behind the unit. This part # is TJ103. Thank you.
