Just hooked up the system and after trying to use the water dispenser on the door, it dripped very heavily. Enough to fill a cup within a few minutes. I have not tried to flush the system of all air, but I don't see a small bit of air pressure causing THAT much flow.
Answer Hi Brian. Understand that you replaced the water valve part # 12002193. It will normally take 1-gallon of water flushed through the water filter part # UKF8001. It needs replaced every 6-mos.(750 gallons) of use. Activate the water valve for no longer then 6-seconds and let it rest for a few so that the new coils on the water valve will not overheat. If then after the air is completely flushed from the filter, tubing and water tank, and it still drips then this indicates a clogged water filter. Thank You.
I need to replace the secondary water walve. The distrobution hoses are pressed in, not the screw in type. I can't figure out how to disconnect these 2 hoses. Can you help?
Answer Hello Paul. Yes, you will press in on the plastic fittings on the valve 12002193 and as you press the fittings in, you will pull the plastic lines out of the water valve. These are not hard to remove and replace. Hope this helps.
swaped leads water is delivered to icemaker but not to door not sure what to check next please help, thanks patrick
Answer Patrick, OK, You swapped the wires at the fill valve, when you pressed the water dispenser paddle, the water enterred the ice maker, correct ? Now what you need to do is get a 3 or 4 inch length of 14 guage wire, remove 1/2 in of insulation from both ends of the wire. Remove the white plastic cover on the front of the icemaker. You'll find labelled openings on the body of the mechanism(L,N,V,T,H, etc) Insert one end of the wire into the T opening and the other end into the H opening, hold the wire by the insulation until the main gear starts to rotate/move, then remove the wire. When the rake arm reaches the 1 or 2 o'clock position, the water dispenser should dispense water for a few seconds(7 to 10 seconds or 4 to 4.5 oz. of water. If it does, you have a faulty primary fill valve. If it doesn't you have a faulty fill contact in the control module of the icemaker or a broken wire between the icemaker and fill valve(not repairable). Good Luck and Thanks
Replaced icemaker and secondary valve. The water comes out at door assume that the primary is ok , not sure what to do next. Please help. Thanks patrick
Answer Hi Patrick. What exactly is the issue? Are you not getting ice? If this is the issue, make sure the fill tube is not frozen full. If a water valve is bad and constantly allow the water to trickle, it will freeze and back fill the tube. Take note how the fill tube rest into the back of the ice maker. You can remove it by disconnecting the 1/4" water line at the back. Slightly twist sideways and pull the fill tube out. Rinse it out under sink warm water and completely dry it with a hair dryer. If it is damaged, replace it with part # 67003576. Is the ice maker ejector arms blocked by a stuck ice cube and it wont allow it to re cycle and harvest? Remove the front cover to the ice maker. You can use an insulated wire and jump between "T" and "H" momentarily to get the gear to start to rotate. Remove the jumper wire within 30 -45 seconds. This will jump start a harvest mode. If it will not, then the ice maker is part # D7824706Q. Thank You.
There are two plastic brackets to which the icemaker is fastened when installing. If one or both of them break, are there replacements and do they come with the new icemaker?
Answer Hello, if you are referring to the mounting brackets that are part of the ice mold. Then yes, the replacement icemaker will come with the brackets. You might also be able to purchase the mold itself, but you will have to use a model number to locate the parts breakdown. Thanks!
Does part# AP4009555 come with instructions and fittings needed to replace the old valve?
Answer Hello Jesus. This part most likely does not come with instructions. However, this part is quite easy to install. You would need no additional fittings. To use with the old tubing, you should simply need to snip off the threaded nuts and snap the bare tubing into the new valve. I hope this info helps.
