Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Automatice icemaker is cycling but the unit is not calling for water. Doest that mean the dual water inlet valve needs to be replaced


Answers :

Maybe but not always. It could also mean that the fill tube is full of frozen ice and the water cant get to it. You can actually get behind the machine, take the the 1/4 in screws iut and check the tube to see if this is happening. If you have no ice in the tube the next thing to check is when the ice maker is cycling, get behind the machine, and see if the water valve vibrates at some point, it will actually make a buzzing sound. If this happens and no water then the valve is bad, if it does not happen then the ice maker is bad and not calling for water. You can actually manually advance the ice maker by removing the front cover off it, and getting a jumper wire and going from holes n and m on the upper right side.

I am going to replace a dual water valve with a single water valve on a Whirlpool Gold refrigerator. The reason for changing the valve is that the house has low water pressure and the water dispenser leaks when the pressure gets too low. My question is this: is the water line to the icemaker larger than the water line to the dispenser?
