Question about Refrigerators
Several months ago we noticed water pooling in front of the refrig. when we pushed the water dispenser button. We checked it out and found a crack in the water supply line between the storage tank and the water valve. I finally got around to thinking about a repair today and purchased a tube kit from a local appliance store, installed it and waited for ice. The water dispenser works, but sputters a little at first. It's been several hours and no ice. Do I still have a problem or am I just not giving it enough time?
About every two hours you should hear the ice maker cycle. The easiest way to check is to turn the ice maker off using the arm up in the off position. After a few hours open the door lower the arm and observe. The plastic fingers should advance ejecting the ice into the tub. A few swconds after the ejection you can hear the valve and should hear the water fill the tray. If no advance with the ice maker than ice maker,warm temperature, or wiring. If no solenoid sound (ice maker ejector rotates)than electrical or solenoid valve. Solenoid valve and no water - frozen fill hose, blocked hose or unlikely but possible faulty solenoid valve. If you can hear the valve it should pass water!!
If the ice maker doesent cycle CK the temp of the freezer! Must be cold enough for ice maker to work. zero or colder will work for sure and 0 or so is the right temp for freezer. Above 20 don't think it will cycle and would be an indication low freon or bad compressor in unit.
