If I replace the whole ice maker does it come with new water inlet valve?
Answer Hello Ricky,
If you order the replacement icemaker assembly 2198597 by the model number, it will not come with the water valve. If you order an icemaker kit, these normally include the icemaker, the water valve, an ice bucket, the electrical harness for the icemaker, and the associated water lines. This may seem like a simple way to save a few dollars but you will not receive the correct water valve since it will be a single, (for icemaker only, not for water dispense), but the new icemaker will also have to be taken partially apart to install the proper ice stripper from the old assembly since the kit does not come with the proper part for the design of your model.
My ice makers bin is on the door.
Answer Hello Mel. You need to order part number 2198597 for the correct icemaker assembly 2198597.
Icemaker stoped working,Indoor water still works.Is there a reset?
Answer Hello Norman. No, there is no reset. 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.
