The ice maker has stopped making ice. It appears that no water is making it to the ice maker. All functions of the ice maker seem to be working. We can fill a glass with water and dispence ice if I put some in the ice bucket. What part or parts do I need and how do I replace them? Thank you for your help. Jeff
Answer Hello Jeff. 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 DA62-00914B on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker DA97-05422A 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
Hello:My condenser fan is making a horrible noise, and when I unplug the fan the nosie stops. I am ready to order a new fan motor, but I have noticed that the fan is on far more often that it is off. My other fridge (a frigidaire) the fan is only on every so often. I am wondering--could I have another seperate problem causing the fan to run so frequently, or is it normal on this model for the fan to run most of the time? I don't want to replace the fan if there is some other problem as well. How often should the compressor be running (I am assuming the fan runs anytime the compressor is on?), and how hot should the compressor get?
Also, I have heard that the blade does not come with the new fan and that the old one tends to break when taking it off the old motor. I tried to get it off to see if I could get it off without breaking but was not sure how to get it off. How does it come off, and if I just order the new blade anyway, does it come with the needed hardware to attach it to the new motor?
Hoping to order parts today. Thanks in advance for any help.
Answer Virgil, You're almost correct, The condenser fan motor can run, even though the compressor does not. There are several inputs from thermistors, inside and outside the refrigerator. Replace the fan motor and check to make sure you have a small amount of clearance on each side and across the top to get some cool,make up air to keep things cool. Good Luck and Thanks
So how do I connect my existing water line to this part? The fittings are different.
Answer Hello Virgil. The fittings on the new water valve DA62-00914B are compression fittings. You will remove the nuts off the old lines and cut the ends off if they are bad. Then push the ends into the compression fittings until the bottom out. You can pull on the lines and make sure they are locked into the compression fittings. Hope this helps.
