Assuming you followed the water line installation directions and you have water available to your new refrigerator/freezer here is the rest of the "priming" info you requested. (basically it tells you how to run a bunch of water through the system by filling cups or glasses to remove any debris and/or air...
Automatic Ice & Water Dispenser
Priming the Water Supply System
1. Begin filling the tank by pressing and holding a drinking glass against the water dispenser paddle. 2. Keep the glass in this position until water comes out of the dispenser. It may take about 1½ minutes. 3. Continue dispensing water for about three minutes to flush the system and plumbing connections of any impurities (stopping to empty the glass as necessary).
Ice Maker Operation & Care After the refrigerator is installed properly and has cooled for several hours, the ice maker can produce ice within 24 hours. The ice maker will fill the ice bin from the rear. You must dispense some ice to force the ice forward in the bin. This will allow the bin to fill completely.
Turning the Fresh Food Ice Maker On and Off Ice production is controlled by the ice maker's On/Off icon on the control panel. Press and hold the "Ice Off" icon for three seconds to turn the ice maker "ON" or "OFF". The ice maker is turned off when the LED above the "Ice Off" icon is illuminated.
Using the Ice Maker after Installation Before making ice for the first time, be sure to prime the water supply system. Air in new plumbing lines can result in two or three empty ice maker cycles. Furthermore, if the system is not flushed, the first ice cubes may be discolored or have an odd flavor.
For proper dispenser operation, recommended water supply pressure should fall between 30 psi and 100 psi. Excessive pressure may cause water filter to malfunction.
NOTE The water dispenser has a built-in device that shuts off the water flow after three minutes of continuous use. To reset this shutoff device, simply release the dispenser paddle.
IMPORTANT On occasion, unusually small ice cubes may be noticed in the bucket or in dispensed ice. This could occur in normal operation of the ice maker. If you start seeing these more frequently, it may be an indication of low water pressure or the water filter needs to be replaced. As the water filter nears the end of its useful life and becomes clogged with particles, less water is delivered to the ice maker during each cycle. Remember, if it's been six months or longer since you last changed your water filter, replace the water filter with a new one. Poor quality household water may require the filter to be changed more frequently.
IMPORTANT Your ice maker is turned on at the factory so it can work as soon as you install your refrigerator. If you cannot connect a water supply, set the ice maker's On/Off icon to Off and turn off the water supply valve; otherwise, the ice maker's fill valve may make a loud chattering noise when it attempts to operate without water.
Hope this helps. Randy
The ice maker will not make ice with the water running in contently this keeps the water temp to high. Turn machine off, cut water supply off to machine, remove water inlet valve, ether take valve apart and rebuild it or replace the water inlet valve. Reassemble in reverse order and machine should make ice.
The reason your fill tube to the ice maker is freezing up time and time again is
simply the valve, or valves (water valves) that dispense water to the door and ice maker. It most likely always is the ice maker side because it is always
harvesting ice and it gets used the most. The only way to stop this is to
replace the water valves almost always located in the rear of the Refrigerator
with the supply line coming off the wall the valves with one or two electric
plugs that energize the solenoid type valve when unit calls for water. Tired of
getting out the hair dryer and melting the ice that plugs up the fill tube? This
is the only solution. Some of the time is because lime, or other deposits in the
water will not allow the plunger to rest in the complete closed position. When
the valve is energized for the amount of time needed it lifts the plunger
allowing water to flow through. Then when it goes back down to the closed
position it has a small gap that causes water to seep through. There you have
it! It's fixed! Unplug unit before replacing valves.If you have a double valve
system make sure your lines go back to the original spot. Some of them have a
1/4" line with plastic compression fitting for the ice maker and a 3/8" for the
water at the door. Some have both 1/4" compression fittings coming out like
"Amana" so once again, make sure to get all lines back to the same position.
if it keeps filling and overflowing you have a bad water valve on the back of the fridge.the part number is WR57X10027 and the valve is around 75 dollars.first thing lift the arm or shut off the ice maker so it won't leak anymore,you're missing a few letters off of the model number so when you call your parts store give them the full model number,open the fridge door,look up on the right hand side wall up near the ceiling and give them the model number to make sure you get the correct valve,shut off the water supply to the fridge,then have the new valve next to the old valve when you remove a water line from the old valve just connect it to the new valve,do this until everything is changed out and the new valve is in place,turn on the water supply and you can check the ice maker to make sure it doesn't overflow.you can manually start the ice maker by grabbing the plastic arms of the ice maker and pull them forwards slowly until the arms start to advance on their own,you'll hear the water valve fill the ice maker and then you can watch it fill to see if the water is filling it correctly and i'm sure you'll be fine with the new water valve installed
Buy a new one you have not connected it right. It's about $10.00 for the kit Just DON'T disconnect the valve leading into your pipe you already have or you will a non stop flow of water. Just replace the clear tubing. Turn of (flush) your water supply first then do the new tubing.
you will need to replace the water inlet valve, this runs your water and ice,, before you replace it take your water line off and hold it in a pot, then have someone turn the water back on , this will let you know for sure you are getting water to the valve,, if no water comes out then you have a water line prob,, have that fixed then hook it back up and turn it on, then you will need to run the water for about 2 -3 minutes to purge the air out of the line,,, if you rplace the valve you will need to purge also
First need to determine water supply. Water filter and or inlet screen fouled? I know this is assuming the water supply is open..
Check the ice level bar to be sure it is in the correct position for making ice. If it is incorrect poition, the ice maker "thinks" the ice bin is full. I would start there with the water supply though. Most likely...
I think you will need to unplug the pin plug under the cover at top or bottom hinge. Check the voltage and if OK leave unplugged until you can remove the dispenser and I will try to help you from the power source. Sounds like a short in the board and related to the light socket. The fuse only stopped the short from doing further damage, You may need to locate the short before replacing the fuse or board. I have looked over the wiring diagram. If you find the short without my help just be sure to replace the fuse with the correct size. The only things are the chute heater or something in that area of the board went to ground. Do you have a voltage meter? Contact me later when ready, Sea Breeze
