Ice maker is working fine (no water). How do I know which part is bad, inlet valve or micro switch?
Answer Hello Francisco,
The micro switch in the dispense area will have nothing to do with water fill. If the water valve receives 120Vac for the 6 to 7 seconds it is supposed to during the icemakers' cycle, the water valve is bad. If it never sends the voltage to the water valve, the contacts inside the icemaker have failed and the icemaker will need to be replaced.
the water dispenser is mounted inside the fridge and water just runs out
Answer Brian, The first check should be a clogged filter or low water pressure. If your sure those are OK, then check for a stuck actuator switch 2162361 or stuck button 2210502. Remove the two mounting screws and lower the assembly and check the button and switch, before you remove or check the operation of the individual components.
