Thumbs down Water not feeding Ice maker
Model Number: 1069532582   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The Ice maker stopped making ice, I removed the Ice maker and found that the feeding tube was clogged with ice, removed the ice and tried again, it clogged again.

I tested the Ice maker and jumped the T & H test points and the icemaker went through a complete cycle, however I didnít hear the water pump pumping water

Any suggestions?

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. You can take the tube off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Default Doesn't drip,

I checked the valve, it doesn't drip, however when the ice maker goes througbthe cycle and the solenoid valve opens no water comes through the tube, so it seems that the valve is clogged or stuck, are these valves repairable or sould I get a new one?

I have cleaned and flushed out one and it did ok. It just had sediment in it and it was leaking. If it doesn't work at all I would get a new one.

You could try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. 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.
