The ice maker stop working on this 2-year old refrigerator. I have checked that water is flowing (water comes out of the water dispensor). Pulled the front cover off the icemaker and inserted jumper wire from T to H and the harvest mode initiated. Still not working. I suspect the ice maker water valve may be defective. Or it could be the ice maker thermostat. Any idea how to isolate the problem?
Answer Hello Steven,
The jumper from T to H bypasses the icemaker thermostat so it is not a consideration at this point. If you do this again with a test meter on the icemaker water valve terminals, near the end of the cycle there should be about 7 seconds that the meter should read 120Vac. If not, the contacts in the icemaker motor module are not passing voltage and the icemaker W10377151 will have to be replaced. If you do get the 120Vac for about 7 seconds, the water valve W10349187 is defective and will have to be replaced.
My freezer is frosted up, but nothing frozen, and fridge is not cooling at all.
Answer Hello Deepthunder. Make sure a door gasket is not leaking and letting warm air into the unit and frosting up everything. If not, It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the evaporator coils in the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the control board. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I have a Whirlpool Estate dryer, model # TEDS780-JQ0. In the middle of a drying cycle, just stop running. The interior light still lights up and I can still hear the timer clicking, Can a defective push to start switch cause a dryer stopping in the middle of a cycle?
The push to start switch would not cause a dryer to stop mid cycle. The most likely cause would be the motor overheating in which you will want to check the seals on the dryer drum and blower housing to make sure that they are not damaged. If so then they will need to be replaced. If the seals check ok and you can let it cool and it will restart then the motor would be the issue with the unit.
How do I go about testing the lid switch and the motor coupler ?
The lid switch you will check the outer wires while the lid is closed and there should be continuity. If there is no continuity then you will need to replace the switch. The motor coupler you will visually inspect as there is not a test for it.
After wash cycle the washer clicks and shut,s off . I just replaced
The pump, what else might the problem be.
Answer Robert, You'll need to check the lid switch 3949247 circuits first. If the lid switch circuit is not completed, the washer will not drain or spin, and the washer timer won't advance.
