How do I remove water lines from inlet valve 2319734?
Answer Hello Kevin. Press in on the plastic fittings on the water valve to release the water lines and remove them from the valve on the unit.
Water leaking into freezer from ice maker.
You will want to pull the icemaker and check for seeping from the icemaker. Also check to make sure that the fill tube is not frozen. If you do not see signs of dripping down the back wall or shelves then you will want to make sure that the drain behind the wall is not frozen which would cause frozen ice at the bottom of the freezer compartment. If the fill tube and icemaker check ok and the drain is not plugged then you would want to replace the water valve.
I am trying to troubleshoot an issue with only a few cubes or no ice being made. I get water from the water dispenser but if I unplug the tubing from the water valve at the top of the icemaker no water comes out. Is this a problem with the valve?
Answer Hello Michael. 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.
