My whirlpool stopped making ice cubes , water dispenser is o.k. and water to ice cube pan (rubber tube) won't stop running (leaking)

You are going to have to check the water solenoid to see if it is operating correctly. The solenoid operates from the AC power through a micro switch on the rotating cam. When the switch operates the solenoid is jerked out and allows water to flow. When the switch opens (timed to fill up the ice tray) spring pressure snaps the solenoid shut blocking the water flow. If the solenoid valve sticks in the open or partially open position, it allows water to leak by.

Ford f250 Truck 1987 460. Solenoid sticks once in a while.Starter keeps running until you tap solenoid.Replaced it 3 times.With new part starts fine 2 -3 times then starts sticking again every time.Put the...

Most likely you need a new Ignition switch. The small "tickler" wires on your solenoid are staying on. You can disconnect the small wire from the Solenoid and then put a test light on it. Turn the Ignition to Start and see if the wire stays hot when you release the key.

Another problem you could have is the Starter has such a bad intermittent short in it, that it keeps the points welded together after the key is released from the Start position. You can get a starter Draw test done at some parts stores like Autozone or Oreillys to name a few, they do it free and on the truck.

Let me know the result please,

My car wants to keep starting even after turning the key off

solenoid may be sticking. Have someone start the car, if it sticks tap the solenoid with screw driver handle. If that stops the starter, replace the solenoid. If it were me, I wouldn't bother testing it and just replace solenoid.

Starter want disengage when truck is cranked up

That would indicate either the ignitiion switch is sticking, or the solenoid is sticking, or your starter is just worn out.

You can test the ignition switch & the solenoid with just a 12 Volt test light at the starter with the help of an assistant.

Remove the solenoid "start" wire & use the test light to connect to it & watch while the ignition switch is operated from start to on for several test. Have the person turning the key to say when they are doing the on & start so that you will be able to determine if it is stickiing.

To test the solenoid, you'll need to have the wire connected again & put the test light probe on the lower Starter terminal, the one that connects directly to the starter, and have the car started. the light should only light as long as the ignition switch is in the "START" position & go off immediately upon releasing the ignition switch. If the light stays lit for even a moment after releasing the ign. switch, the solenoid or the solenoid & starter will need to be replaced.

The solenoid & starter aren't always replaced at the same time but you generally would due to the same amount of use and potential for future breakdowns due to only replacing the one part. You also get a better rebuilt product as a rule when you buy it with the lifetime warranty which has both parts included. The starter would be at fault if the other 2 test failed & that could be as a result of normal use, or just a lack of lubricant on the bendix shaft. You can have it tested as well as the solenoid tested, at your local auto parts store.

good luck.

Could not move column gear shift out of park on an automatic 98 econoline .

Check the brake switch. It should have four wires connected to it. Two for the brake lights, the other two for the shifter solenoid. Short the two wires that activate the solenoid. If the shifter solenoid activates when you short the wires, replace the brake switch. Otherwise the shifter solenoid maybe the problem. Also there is a manual release somewhere. It is usually a hole where you can stick a screwdriver into it. The hole maybe covered with a cap.

Wont turn over with key?

W/out knowing details on your vehicle, it makes it very difficult to help. Year? Stick or auto>? engine/trans info. Does it have an alarm installed or a factory security system?

Common checks would be park/neutral switch (Or clutch switch if its a stick), fuses (some cars actually fuse the start signal), old alarm brain that has activated and cut off starter signal, and do the cluster lamps go into SELF TEST and all light up when you turn the key to CRANK. If the lamps do the normal cranking bulb check, then likely your ignition switch is working. depending on the year, ford ignition switches sometymes could be a common problem. But without info to look up a diagram, cant offer more help than generalities

When i start my car and press the brake to shift out of park it sticks and wont move. i have and automatic 1998 cadilac catera

HI, there is a solenoid(switch) that's located in shift linkage housing that works in conjunctions with the brake pedal when you shift from park to reverse or drive. this is a safety situation.

Sometimes, this solenoid(switch) can malfunction or die. In this case, it will prevent the gear shift lever from moving into the reverse or parked position. Simply replacing this shift lever solenoid will fix this issue. You can expose the solenoid by disassembling the shift stick housing,

Please rate and have a great day:)
