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. 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
MY Admiral ice maker , the ice tray gets about 1.5 in. of water , the ice maker still works and dumps out ice , whats wrong ??? thank you . you have a nice web site .
If you have a water filter in your unit or an inline water filter on the back of the unit then you will want to make sure that it is good. Otherwise the water valve may not be opening all the way.
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.
