We have a fairly new Roper fridge and we just finished tiling the
kitchen. While we were working on the kitchen we had rolled the
fridge in the dining room and had it running but no water hooked up.
The old ice was left in the bin but we cleaned it out when we rolled
it back. Hooked the water up and the water dispenser on the door
worked but we couldn't get the ice maker to make ice.
UNIT INFO :
Roper - RS22AQXKQ00 Door dispenser for ice and water
Whirlpool dual valve - water side works fine - ice maker side doesn't
Thought it might be the ice maker valve but it's a dual valve and the
side of the water dispenser works fine. Picked up another valve but
when I was looking at it, I decided to check the coil on the ice make
side and found there was no power. So I started looking at the ice
maker instead of the valve. Not much there and when I pulled the unit
out, and put it back, the motor cycled once but the valve never got
power. Not sure how this cycles, when it cycles, for how long or what
the logic is for the valve.
So now my question is, what might the problem be? I was letting it
set to see if something needed to reach temp or something before it
cycled, but the ice tray is bone dry and the valve doesn't get power
to the coil. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated as we
didn't realize how much we depended on the ice maker until it didn't
Thanks in advance for your assistance!
