Just replaced my ice maker and it will not work. I'm getting water to the back of the unit but not up to the tray. Can anyone help?

What was the original problem?

What is the part number of the ice maker you installed?

What is the complete model number of the refrigerator?

Make sure the water feeding tube into the ice maker is not frozen.

The model number you posted does not come up. Verify and repost it please.

The lines are not frozen. The model is ARS9107A and the ice maker is D7824706Q. I just took everything apart and cleaned and checked to be sure it was put back together properly. No luck.

Measure the temperature in the freezer. It is important for normal ice production that the temperature in the freezer is at least 10F.

Locate the water inlet valve on the back of the refrigerator. Remove the wires from the water valve solenoid and check the solenoid for continuity.

If it checks OK, then using a jumper cable, apply 120 VAC directly to the water valve solenoid for a few seconds.

If there is still no water in the ice maker, replace the water inlet valve.

If there is water, the new ice maker is probably defective and has to be exchanged.


- The water inlet valve Part number: AP4133159

Part number: AP4133159
