I ordered new solenoid that came with door. I installed it and it was making a very loud buzzing noise. I also had a frost buildup between the icemaker and the icemaker chute in the door. I posted my problem on the forum and Sheila suggested that the heat from the defective solenoid might have distorted the fountain housing, causing the new solenoid not to seat right, and possibly letting outside air into the icemaker. On closer inspection I saw that the hosing WAS distorted. I ordered a new one, installed it, problem solved! Hats off to the staff here, where else can you get a diagnosis first -so you know what parts to order!
