Question about Kenmore 57029 Side by Side Refrigerator
We recently moved our refrigerator to another house without a water line connection for the icemaker. When we installed the water line about a week or two later, we noticed the ice maker switch had been left on. We now have water through the door but no water is going to the icemaker. Did something fail because the icemaker was left on without any water connection? Or is something else the reason? thanks
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
