My ice maker quite filling with water and so there for we have no ice. What do I have to do.The ice that was coming out before was dirty. Would appreciate any information you can give me. Thanks for your time
Answer Hello Cherylynn. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. 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
My ice maker will not shut off when the arm is raised, arm is not broken, stays in up or down position, will replacing the arm fix this problem?
It sounds like the arm is not in the correct position. If you pull the icemaker out and check to make sure that the arm is in the hole on the back part of the front assembly. If it is not then it needs to be in this position as this is the shut off gear.
I have a Whirlpool refrigerator and the shut off bale wire is not working on the ice maker. There's no play in it. It doesn't stay up. Do I replace the wire connection or the actual wire?
Answer Hello Denise,
The problem is internal in this case so the ice maker assembly or the motor module will require replacement. We normally supply a part number but, with no model number, since appliance parts are model specific, we need the model number to provide you with the correct part number. You can either re-post with the verified model number or you can call in and one of our representatives will be happy to look up the part number for you.
This arm fell off and I can't see inside to reattach it. Does the cover of the box come off, and if so, how? What is the best way to reattach it?
Answer Hello James.
If you use a small mirror you can see the slot that the bale arm goes into. No disassembly is required to install this at all.
My ice shut off arm has fallen off. how do i re-attach? can i take off cover of the sencor box? (if so how)
Answer James, You don't really need to remove the mechanism cover, But if you want to, you can use a flat blade screwdriver and insert it into the slots molded into the bottom of the mechanism and twist. If anything, you may want to remove and disconnect the icemaker. The 90 dgr. bend in the arm will be inserted in the round opening of the water inlet housing 628356 and the other(wiggly) end will be inserted into the slot of the white nylon hub on the backside of the mechanism control head D7824706Q. you have to alihn evrything first, then press the arm into the hub, until it seats and "clicks" into place. Thanks and Good Luck
