Water valve to Ice maker will not shut off. I have replaced the water valve. So it is a new valve, how do you test a water inlet valve.
Answer Hello Rusty,
Since the water valve has no spring inside it to close it, the only thing that closes it is the water pressure that is applied to it. If the water pressure is sufficient, you may have a sticking set of contacts inside the icemaker assembly. There is no way to "test" a water valve to see if it is physically opening and closing short of applying water pressure to it and see if it passes water and closes after doing so when the voltage is removed from the coil.
Water disp fine but my ice cubes are coming out hollow.
Answer Hello Gene. If the cubes are hollow, you will need to check the temp in the freezer and make sure it is 0 to 5°. If not, you get hollow cubes. Thanks.
The ice maker quit filling with water. The water dispenser works okay. What is wrong and what part do I need?
Answer Hello Russell. 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.
