My whirlpool refrigerator freezer model, ED5VHGXMB10, has a problem with the icemaker. It does not get water. The icemaker is on and makes a full cycle, but is not getting water to make the ice cubes. I replaced the valve and that has not fixed the problem. I see that the waer goes into the valve and our to the water dispenser correctly. However, the pipe line from the valve to the ice dispenser does not have water going through it. It looks like it has been dry for some time. I don't see any kinks in the line. What else could be the problem? I just put a new filter in, so I don't think that's the problem either since we do get water from the water dispenser.
You will want to test the icemaker to make sure that it is sending power to the water valve. Using a multi-meter set for 200v or auto, use a jumper wire between t and h. When the icemaker starts and gets to about the 3 o'clock position pull the jumper out. Put your meter leads in the motor module in the terminals labeled N and V. When the fingers get to about the 11 o'clock position there should be 120 vac across these leads. If there is no then pull the motor module and look for burn marks on the back lower right side. If burnt it is best to replace the complete icemaker assembly. If there is power across V and N then pull the icemaker out and check the fill tube to make sure that it is not frozen.
Is Part Number AP3175652 adjustable? I have a problem that there is a small gap and water going to the ice maker is escaping thru the gap and freezing in a clump. Is there a way to correct this?
Answer Barry, No, the water chute 2209774 is not adjustable. Make sure it is seated properly with the fill tube and mounted to the side wall properly and tightly and make sure the icemaker is also mounted securely. Make sure the end of the chute extends into the fill cup approximately 1/4 inch. If the problem persists, you'll need to check the fill tube for twists or kinks, and the water pressure and fill valve for
debris or loose connections allowing air into the tube to the icemaker.
