Ice maker is not getting any water

How do i determine if the problem with the icemaker not getting any water is the solenoid or the signalling unit. because i thawed out the entire frig (doors open) for about 7 hours. so i don't think the water line is froze up. so essentially how do i check a solenoid or at least how do i trigger the electromagnet to see if the plunger is moving?

Icemaker not making ice

If no water is getting to ice maker either the water feed solenoid is not working, the water line is no good, or the cam mechanism of the ice maker is not switching the solenoid on.

Have GSS201EPC WW and neither water nor Ice maker work. Water is connected and on and water solenoid "buzzes" when toggled. Icemaker also cycles. Water drips if solenoid activated and ice cubes...

If the solenoid valve buzzes you have an iced-up fill tube. Check where the water comes into the ice maker and try to determine if it is clogged. If so, defrost with a hair dryer, but make sure you turn off the unit before.

Ice maker not making ice for kenmore elite 795.5882

Hello there
first see it is or isnt getting water to the ice maker. which is fed by the water feed solenoid if there is , there is plenty of water pressure, and no blockage check really closly to see if there is any ice buildup on feed tube in freezer. if so remove every thing from inside and let the unit sit over night with it unplugged to fully defrost the entire thing
there might also be a problem with sending the signal to the solenoid to feed water to the maker. so you may want to have this checked out and finally if every thing in the ice maker works except its not getting water then i would have the icemaker electronics checked out to see if they are getting a signal

Icemaker not working

The ice maker valve is a dual one. with 2 solenoids. One solenoid operates the water and the other the ice maker. So if the water works that don't mean the ice maker supply is ok. The ice maker itself controls the flow of water. So if the water valve is ok then the ice maker is faulty. I have repair photos HERE

I have a Kenmore side by side elite. I have installed a new ice maker. I can not get water into the ice maker. The extraction teeth rotate and I get water through the water port on the door but not into...

Usually happends that the solenoid (electric valve who opends when the ice maker calls for water) leaks and this water freezes up inside the filling tube for the ice maker , t he solenoid has to be replaced.

Whirlpool Refrigerator Model ED25PW Ice maker tray not filling with water

Just had this issue - after checking all line connections, I pulled the ice maker feed water line from the back of the unit and found the tube was blocked with ice. Melted the ice with some hot water, and all is good once more. I would check for this before getting into the solinoid.

No water to the ice maker. No voltage to the inlet solenoid

icemakers work on a timed cycle and a timed fill. pressing the reset switch i would say solved your problem. I would switch the valves back to the way they were. The valve for the ice is smaller then the door water because the icemaker takes a small amount of water to fill. Good luck
