My water valve has all threaded fiittings on the lines. What do I have to do to convert the lines to use with the new style water valve for push in lines?
Answer Hello Bob,
All you need to do is cut the ends off of the water lines, (the lines must be cut off SQUARELY), to eliminate the part that has indentations from the other installation. The lines will slip into the new valve fittings and when they bottom, push harder until you feel them "pop" in about another 1/4 of an inch. When this occurs, pulling on the line a bit seats the seal.
The icemaker won't make ice. I have water to the door, but it won't make ice. I know there are 3 solonoids, the blue one has 346 ohms and the gree one has 171 ohms. How do I manually start the icemaker so I can check the valve? I know it only works when it is called for. When I took the cover off the icemaker, it said not to turn manually. Thanks for your help.
Answer Harry, Apparently you have a basic W/P heat release ice maker. To "manually" start your ice maker, remove the front cover, take a 3 inch legth of 14 guage insulated wire and remove 3/4 of an inch of the insulation from both ends. Looking at the control plate and gear, insert one end of the wire in the opening labelled "T" and the other end into the opening labelled "H" Mkae sure you hold the wire by the insulation and press the wire in enough to make contact with the internal contacts, Once the main gear starts to rotate, remove the wire. You'll also need to tape the freezer door switch shut.
