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.
Machine has quit making ice, was very dirty with buildup, ran thru cleaning cycle with cleaner, machine got very warm inside. Is that normal? Besides getting dirty what could cause machine to stop working? Thank You
Answer Hello Curt. It is normal to get warm during the clean cycle. If dirty, that may have been your issue. However, if not, there are several things that can cause this. Sealed system issue, condenser coils dirty or the condenser fan motor bad on the unit.
How do I disconnect the water lines? I tried twisting the connector, pulling the line, bringing up the disc & pulling the line, but it won't budge.
Answer Hello Ivan,
I'm sure you are referring to the John Guess fittings. These are simple once you figure it out. To remove the water line, push the water line as though you are putting it in. While pushing in on the line, press the little ring around the line toward the valve assembly and hold it. Now if you pull on the water line while holding the ring in, it will slide right out. To reinstall, check to insure there isn't a groove on the line from a previous installation. This will cause the fitting to leak. Now push the water line in the hole and when it bottoms, push harder. The water line will "pop" in a little further. Now pull on the water line to seal it.
Its not real clear on the valve which connection the water supply is connected. Does it get connected on the green end?
Answer Hello Ky. Neither, there should be a supply line on the back of the unit the water supply from house attaches to.
Everything works except water valve will not open to let water into resivor. How do I check if it is valve assy or control board?
Answer Hello Carl. You test for power to the valve. If there is power there and no water, replace the water valve W10217917. If there is no power there, you need to replace the control. 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
What does it take to replace control panel? Are you sure thats the problem? I did what you said & it did the same, made ice then reservor didnt fill.
Answer Hello Bob. According to the manufacture, then control board is the issue for what you are describing. You have to remove the outer wrap off of the ice machine to access and replace the control board. These are not easy to replace, but can be done. The power and the water will need to be disconnected to remove the outer cover.
Continues to run. Unpluged unit for a day, plugged back in ,it worked for 1 cycle the stsrted doing the same with reservor empty again,pump ?? Noise again. Is it the fill valve?
Answer Hello Bob. Try unplugging it again and see if it works for 1 cycle. if so, you may have a bad control board W10141364 and it is not cycling the unit to fill the unit. If you reset the board, and it fills, the valve is good on the unit.
