Question about Refrigerators
The ice maker side of the valve is getting power, but no neutral to complete the circuit. Is this a problem with the main circuit board?
Typically, the hot side of circuits are switched - neutral is always presented at the load. This is for safety. If hot were always present - any accidental ground (at any time) would either power up the load until removed - or cause direct short if it contacted the always hot terminal. If the hot is present at the solenoid only during times it is needed to fill, then you you could safely connect the neutral from the other solenoid. HOWEVER - since I do not know which fridge you have and can't verify the wiring - you'll have to do some testing on your own before attempting. Have a look at the neutral side of the solenoid and see if you can't locate a break in the wire somewhere - with the fridge unplugged.
