Determined coil was open when fill valve did not allow water to enter the icemaker tank. Checked coil with Ohmmeter, found open, and ordered part. Part came in in quick order and allowed me to replace fill valve and have machine making ice within 4 business days. Nothing like clear ice maker for making really good ice.

Replaced with new part. Issue this the third time in about 3 years and I do not know why the part life is so short. Replacement is 5 minutes as the valve is just behind the from panel.

The water valve developed a leak, the plastic housing had cracked.

I turned of the power, unplugged the electrical connection to the valve, disconnected the water inlet and outlet pipes, remover two small bolts that attached the valve to the frame of the ice maker and removed the old valve. The new valve was installed in the reverse order. It was a very easy install.
