Pretty sure, that my water line is frozen. I have had the fridge unplugged in open now for about 8 hrs. How long should it take, nothing going to ice maker, or in door water.
It can take upwards of 24 hours or so in order for the water tank to thaw out if it is frozen. This issue could also be a bad water filter head or water filter that could cause this issue to occur.
Can I check the water inlet valve with an ohmmeter?
Answer Hello Larry. Sure, test for power to the valve. If there is power there, and no water, replace the water valve on the unit. 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
Our Ice maker stop working, we took it a part and there was a little bit of water in the ice mold , so we thought it was the dual water inlet valve, we purchased a new one and installed it. But we noticed that there is no water going to the ice maker tube on the back of the refrigerator. Can you please help us.
You will want to check the fill tube in the freezer compartment to make sure that it is not frozen up. If frozen then the issue is most likely that the water valve was seeping allow water to trickle in in which case you already resolved. If not frozen then the icemaker would most likely be the cause for failure.
Do you carry a replacement part for this?
Answer Hello Aaron. Sorry, we do not sell parts for this brand.
When and if I order a dual water inlet valve kit 2188542 for my side by side refrigerator will it have a line for a filter which mine does not have, or will it just have the hook ups for only the ice maker and water levers at the door? If it does have a hookup for a filter will there be some way to plug it and not use it?
Answer Hello! No, the inlet valve 2188542 will not have a port for a filter line. Thanks.
