My ice maker runs water in to bin. Still makes ice but now all is frozen in the bin. Is it the water valve?
Normally the water valve would not cause this type of issue unless it is continuously streaming. You will want to check to make sure that the fill cup is not freezing over and pull the icemaker out to make sure that the mold is not deteriorating. The deterioration of the coating on the mold is most likely the cause. When the mold deteriorates the water will drip out onto the ice that is in the bin. If the water seems to be dripping towards the back of the bin then the fill cup may have ice in it. If you clear the ice and the issue continues to occur then replace the water valve.
Located a leaking inlet valve - W10217917 or K-77195. But I cannot figure out how to get the water tubes disconnected. They dont seem to pull or twist off. Help please.
Answer Hello Rusty,
Push the water line into the valve and while pushing, hold the ring around the line toward the water valve. While holding the ring in this manner, the water line will slip right out. To reinstall the water line, first make sure there is no indentation around the end of the water line about 1/4 inch from the end. This will prevent a seal. If the indentation is present, cut the line off squarely at the indentation. Now place the water line into the valve and push hard. You should feel it pop in. When this happens, pull the line to seat the seal.
The ice maker is not getting water, however, the water dispenser in the door does work. How do I fix this problem?
Answer Hello James,
The water valve on the unit is a dual valve. This means that one side of the valve is for water dispense and the other is for the ice maker fill. You will most likely have to change the dual water inlet valve (AP5263471) to correct this issue.
Ice maker quite working. I installed a new icemaker and the unit is not getting water. What could be causing this issue?
You will want to check the fill tube to make sure that it is not frozen. If the fill tube is not frozen then make sure that the icemaker is cycling. If so then the water valve would be faulty.
Do you have water valve assy. to replace invensys n-86-sv 2313741 k-76381
The part number for your water valve for your icemaker is part number WR57X10072.
Water is not getting to the ice maker. Used to hear the water as it filled the maker , now nothing.
Answer Hello Frank. 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
I'm replacing the leaking valve on my ice machine but didn't make a note of which section of tubing connects to each of the valve outlets. How do I know which tube to connect to each of the two outlets on the valve assembly?
Answer Hello Michael,
When looking at the water valve, the tube that runs into the icemachine to fill the trough is connected to the connector at the bottom of where the plug connectors are located. The supply line goes to the green section.
