I have an icemaker in my freezer that's not working. I need some
troubleshooting help. Here's what I know.
I have replaced the water valve. I do not think the valve is getting power.
I took my ohmmeter and put one probe in one of the wire lead clips and put
the other probe on the other and no needle movement (did I do that right?).
I followed the wire further back into the frig until It was in another clip
joining several wires. I used the ohmmeter again to check each wire
individually (one probe on one end and one on another) and both wires from
there to the valve were solid.
Following the wires further back led to a 4" wide metal panel fixed to the
back of the refrigerator that the wires led up into. I didn't want to go
tearing into this until I knew if it would do any good. If there's a switch
that's not turning on, then that would account for the break on the
ohmmeter. The freezer is on it's coldest setting and this is several hours
after replacement of the valve and replugging it in. No water is getting up
in the tube leading to the icemaker, but the tube itself is clear.
Can anyone point me in the right direction on what to check next?
Thanks so much in advance. Just found this NG and it's definitely going in
my subscribe list.
