A few days ago, I found my icemaker with a full FROZEN reservoir. I turned off the icemaker for 24 hrs and let everything thaw. I drained the water from the reservoir, replaced the drain cap, and restared the icemaker. After a little bit of time, the water filled the reservoir (with some water draining to the overflow hose) and the waterstopped, then the recirc pump DIDNT operate. I waited and after some time, still no water moving from the recirc pump, tubing (from recirc pump to water dispenser) appeared without water. Evap plate was very cold to touch w some frost visible. So, i replaced the recirc pump, and still the same- water fills the reservoir, overflows a little, then no action from recirc pump, so water in the reservoir just remains unchanged. ( which i Think if i left it there for a few days would probably just freeze, as I had originally found it) What is the problem?
You will want to test to make sure that voltage is getting to the recirculation pump in order for it to come on. If there is no power to it then the main control board would be faulty and need to be replaced.
Does the tube with a u-bend coming out of the side of the pump on the bottom of the bowl supposed to have a hole in it?
The tubing that goes from the reservoir to the evaporator should not have a hole in it. If it does then it would need to be replaced.
I've replaced the recirculating pump. Now when water enters the ice bin it simply runs out the recirculating pump into the reservoir. How does the hose (manufacturer's number 2313851) fit/set. Does it hang from the water bin? or attach to the plastic tube protruding from the recirculating pump? Or what? and where does the other end go? Thanks.
Answer Jeff, The "flush" cycle occurs at the start of a cycle and after the self clean cycle, the pump and reservoir will overflow at this point. The large water tube 2217286 attaches to the large port on the bottom of the recirc. pump and is attached to the water distribution tube 2185523 in the top of the cabinet. We're sending you some more service information to help you out. Thanks and Good Luck
