theharrisont, You state that...." ice maker stopped working after it flooded our kitchen floor."
The water works because the water fountain dispenser uses a separate part of the Water Valve
. The ice maker portion of the water valve is defected and the entire Water Valve Assembly
will have to be replaced. Your problem is the dual Water Valve Assembly
which is located on the rear bottom area of the refrigerator (follow the water inlet line from the wall to the refrigerator...the water inlet line connects to the Water Valve Assembly)
. The significant info which you provided was that the ice maker flooded the kitchen which indicates the Water Valve Assembly
is defected. Failure to replace the Water Valve Assembly
will result in the same problem of flooding at some later date. Replacing the dual Water Valve Assembly
is just one step of several steps necessary to correct the problem. You will also have to temporarily remove the ice maker from the freezer (usually a couple of screws hold it to the wall and a quick disconnect electrical plug) and put it in the sink and run warm water over to remove any ice. Before you reinstall the ice maker you must check the Water Fill Tube
that dumps the water into the ice maker. Because you said that the ice maker flooded the kitchen, then the Water Fill Tube
is probably filled solid with ice which must be removed. A hair dryer is a quick way to achieve this. Blow hot air directly into the end of the Water Fill Tube
which dumps the water into the ice maker. Note: Use a long screw driver to insert into the Water Fill Tube to break loose any ice and continue to use the hair dryer to help to remove any ice.
This should correct your problem
