How do I test the water valve to see if it is functioning properly on this model.
To test the water valve, you will want to put a jumper wire in the terminals of the icemaker labeled T and H. Let the icemaker start cycling and once it clicks a second time then pull the jumper wire out and go to the back of the unit and check for voltage on the water valve. The valve should receive 120 vac when the icemaker gets to the point where it calls for water. If there is 120 vac then you will also want to check to make sure that the fill tube is not frozen. If the fill tube is or is not frozen then the valve would need to be replaced.
Is the water valve in the ice maker or behind the refrigerator?
Answer Hello John,
While it is very helpful to have the model number so the model can be looked up and no guesses have to be posted, I would guess that the water valve is in the rear since this is the most common place for it to be mounted. If you still cannot find it, please re-post with the model number so we can look it up and tell you exactly where to locate it. There are no refrigerators that have the water valve in the ice maker.
