Default bridge over troubled water
Model Number: TFX26ZPA(D?)WW   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I am getting H2o to icemaker. but not to the door dispensor.

Recently, when calling for water it has been making a noise which, to me, seemed to be the solonoid trying to engage - when it "unstuck" water would flow.

I checked voltage( getting 120v) to both blue solinoids when pressing the "gimme some water darnit" button. - I did not check the voltage to the two red valves- im not sure how to sent the signal to them.

I then checked resistance- 328OHM on both blue solonoids, and 183 OHM on both reds ( ice maker valves)

I musta done something wrong- because if one of the blue solonoid is bad i would think I would get a differnet resistance?

Any other suggestions???

It is a GE TFX26ZPA(D?)WW

Additionally, ice type selector just stop functioning, I only get crushed now. From searching through some post here, it appears to be a solonoid. would you agree?

Finally, this week the ref door (side by side) makes a loud clunk when just about closed. Is this the cam lifter? door does not appear yo lift during opening. freezer door does lift.

thanks

I isolate the problem to the blue inlet solonoid. I did this by putting the lead for the blue side on the red side. when we called for water -presto

two questions

can I just replace the inlet valves/solonoid (there are a total of 4) only one is bad

second can I just use the red (icemaker) solonoid to open the inlet for both h2o and ice by doubling up the leads ( i.e. putting water and ice on ice solonoid )

Default Luck for now

Now that I now which soloniod was "bad" I whacked it with a screwdriver handle and .... TA Dah - dude works like new.


put off the new valve purchase/install (for a least a little while) ...

While the unit was pulled out-

I decided to remove and flush the incoming H2O tube (plastic- it looked nasty- rust and dirt in h20) I put water and cotton in the removed line and blew it through the tube(using air compressor) about 5-6 times and it is clear again.
