Ice Maker not getting water so I replaced the water valve (WR57X10024). Still not getting water. Water Dispenser producing plenty of water. What could cause the Ice maker to not get water?
Answer Hello. Check to make sure that the water line going into the icemaker is not frozen. If it is not, it could be that the icemaker is not cycling and calling for water and needs to be replaced. If needed, the icemaker is part number WR30X10093. Thanks!
Where can I find more detailed installation instructions for installing both the AP2071735 and AP2071736 for my TPS24BPDABS? I've already viewed the videos on your website. Thanks.
Answer Hello Frank,
This is not a difficult repair. As long as you unplug the unit and turn the water off to it, all you need to remember is to remove one thing at a time and place it on the new part until the new part is interchanged. Once completed, remember to turn the water back on, re-establish the electrical connection, and check for leaks, THEN put the covers back on. If you follow this advice, you should have no problems.
Ice maker worked only occasionally so replaced the ice maker and now it has not worked at all. I am thinking it may be the water valve. Your guess? And where is the water inlet valve for the ice maker?
The water valve may be the cause of failure. You will need to check voltage at the water valve to see if the valve is energizing when the icemaker calls for water. If there is 120 vac and the fill tube is not frozen then you would want to replace the water valve. In most cases the water valve is located on this unit under the front of the unit or it is located in the upper section of the unit.
I bought and installed an inlet valve from appliance pros to try and fix a water dispenser that is not working and it still is not working. The dispenser stopped working as I was filling a glass of water. What else could be causing this to happen the other water valve or the control board? Is there something else that I should check or measure with the multimeter? I replaced WR57X10026 a few years ago and we are still having problems getting water.
Looking forward to your thoughts of how to fix this situation, Thanks, John
You will want to check to make sure that you have a good water filter in the unit and if the filter is good then it could be the filter head that is causing the issue with dispensing water. You can pull the water filter and disconnect the water line that goes to the door and hit the dispenser to see if it is coming through there. If not then check the valve that goes to the filter by pulling the tube to make sure that water is going to the filter and then the tube coming back from the filter to make sure that water is coming back from the filter. This will allow you to determine if it is the filter or the filter head.
My water dispenser no longer dispenses water. The Ice Maker works fine and produces ice, but the water dispenser is the problem. I'm searching all avenues to resolve this problem.
Answer Hello Thomas,
You will want to remove the kickplate from unit and disconnect the water line at the bottom of freezer door. Push dispenser to see if water comes out. If water comes out then the water line in the door is bad and would need to have a dispenser tube heater WR49X10173 put into unit. This kit will have instructions for installation.
Ice maker not getting water, water is working from the water dispenser, any suggestions?
Answer Hello Paul. 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
I have a water leak where the hose goes into the white fitting, apparently to the water filter. How do I fix it?
Answer Hello George,
Look at the end of the water line. If there is an indentation around it about 1/4 of an inch from the end from where it was installed before, this will have to be cut off squarely with a razor knife so it can seal properly. When completed, put the line in the fitting and push until it bottoms. Now push harder and it should "pop" in another 1/4 inch or so. Now pull on it like you're trying to pull it back out. This should seat the line against the seal. As long as the leak wasn't originating from the valve body, this should correct the leak issue.
