Our icemaker has stopped working. No water is coming to the icemaker, will replacing the water valve fix this? Thanks, Miriam
Answer Miriam, Yes, replacing the 61005626 Water Inlet Valve, may solve the issue. It's a good place to start. You forgot to include a model number for the refrigerator, and depending on the machine you may have a "secondary" fill valve that has a failed solenoid as well, so you may want to re check and replace both valves, if equipped.
Ice maker was not working and I replaced it. Ice maker not getting any water supply, but it does dispense water on the door.
Answer Hello Bob. 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
What is causing my icemaker to overflow water into the ice bin? Makes ice then makes big blob of ice in bin.
You will want to check your icemaker to see if the mold on the icemaker is deteriorating and also check to make sure that the fill tube is in place properly. If the icemaker is deteriorating you will want to replace the icemaker D7824706Q.
