Default water will not shut off to ice maker
Model Number: 10659562990   Brand: Kenmore   Age: More than 10 years

I came home to find water all over my kitchen floor and found the water was not shutting to the ice maker. I replaced the ice maker with a new ice maker (model number wpl 4317943) however the water still runs continuously. Is the problem with the ice maker or do I have another problem? What do I need to fix it? Thanks for your help.

Your water inlet valve is probably stuck open. It can be cause by wear or sediment in the water causing it to stick. You may can clean it or get a new one. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. Here-Model #10659562990 | ********************************.com

Default Ice make not working

I purchased the suggested part (water inlet valvue or soleniod valvue) but now my ice make is not producing any ice. The valvue is not allowing any water to flow to the ice maker. My guess is that electric connections are backwards. You can only place the plastic electric tabs on one way...one set of electric contacts are smaller than the others. However the colors seemed backward to the older soleniod valvue. Is this possible or is there another problem/ solution.

Thanks

The ice maker sends for water when it freezes and dumps the ice. Try filling the ice mold and see if it starts working when it freezes.
If you also have a water dispenser you can swap the wires on the water inlet valve and try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker letting you know if the valve is working for the ice maker.
