Icemaker not working, weird voltage results
Model Number: 10656703500 Brand: Kenmore Age: 5 - 10 years
I'm trying to troubleshoot a non-working icemaker in a Kenmore Elite/Coldspot freezer and not having any luck.
Optics for the emitters check ok with the proper flashing/solid lights
H&T jumper started the IM moving but no water
L & V jumper did not dispense water
Water tube had a small chunk of ice, but it came right out when squeezed and doesn't seem clogged
Attempted to swap the water solenoids at back but not sure which wires to swap. One connector has black, red and blue while the other has black, white and brown. Don't want to blow it up with wrong hookup.
Odd results when trying to test voltage. When I tested the L & N points I got no voltage (in 1/2" as suggested). When I back off and test the black and white leads on the connector going to the IM I get a voltage of 34v which seems really odd.
Not sure if I should look at replacing the dual water inlet, icemaker or if emitters might be giving false readings.
