One year old Kitchen Aid side by side: We turn off house water when we
leave for more than a day or so; last week we left for 4 days and had
the water off. Now the icemaker in the fridge runs its solenoid
wanting water but no water enters the unit. The icemaker seems to be
operating normally, waiting the normal time between fills and blade
rotations to exit ice but with no water there of course, there's no
During the time we were gone, it must have been cycling over and over,
as the bail wire had been left in the down position.
The door water works fine.
Does running the icemaker with no water pressure cause damage?
We've done this many times in the past and I don't recall any problems
on returning and restoring water pressure to the house. It acts like
something may be frozen up perhaps?
Any ideas or suggestions? Besides 'you moron, don't turn off the water
when you leave'...
