Instructions for removal of the icemaker.
To remove the icemaker you will need to remove the ice bin. Once the ice bin and ice door are removed from inside the freezer you will need to use a 1/4" nut driver or ratchet to loosen 2 screw holding the icemaker in. Remove the white cover over the motor module of the icemaker. Once the cover is off lift the icemaker off the screws. If the wire harness has a connector then disconnect the connector. If the wire harness goes straight from wall into the icemaker with no harness connector in the middle then you will want to use a flat head screwdriver and push a little tab on the side of the icemaker where the harness goes into the icemaker. This will release the harness to be able to remove.
The water stream coming out of the dispenser is weak. Acrually, it takes a few seconds to come out once you put the glass in. Can you help?
Answer Hello Leon. Make sure the pressure to the unit is good. If so, you may need to replace the water valve on the unit. Make sure the filter is good on the unit as well.
Other than unplugging the refrigerator, how do I find and defrost the line from the bottom of the door to the dispenser?
Answer Hello Hank,
I normally use a hair dryer. You have to be careful not to melt any plastic since the door liner is made of plastic but you should have no problem if you keep the hair dryer moving. Every 5 to 10 minutes, try the water dispense and if it is beginning to thaw out, you can let the water dribble through until the water comes out full force. Do not hold the dispense button for longer than one minute if water is not coming out full force since this will damage the water valve. If you have held it for one minute, allow it to cool for at least two minutes before pressing it again. By the way, when trying the water dispense, hold the door switch in to try it so you are not closing the door and re-cooling the part you have already heated. This is the fastest way to thaw out the water line in the door.
While I am getting ice made and through the door the water does not dispense. I just replaced the dual water valve w/ OEM part. I can hear the solenoid working/clicking but still get no water? What now brown cow?
Answer Hello Hank. Check and see if the water line is frozen in the freezer door. If so, you will need to thaw out the line. Remove the line from the bottom of the freezer door and press the dispenser. If water comes out, it is frozen in the freezer door.
My chilled water dispencer leaks a slow drip. Do I need to replace the water inlet valve?
Answer Hello Jeff. Remove the water line from the water valve and see if it is dripping. If so, you will need to replace the valve W10408179 on the unit.
