The Ice Cube Maker Tray Would Not Refill With Water

Ps328747 icemaker and water dispenser dual inlet valve was purchased from parts select. My wife, sandy, watched install video provided by parts select on their website. Sandy used plywood to protect our hard wood floor. She pulled out the refrigerator (she did need my help to do this task). Unplugged the refrigerator. I turned off water line in the basement. Sandy followed the video to the tee. Fifteen minutes later the part was installed. The ice maker tray was quickly filled with water. Ice cubes quickly were made. My wife is uniquely talented. Last winter, she remodeled two bathrooms in our naples home replacing all the fixtures, vanities, flooring, etc. My wife can do almost any task. Many years ago, I had a leaking radiator and a broken arm at the same time. What did she do--she removed the radiator from the car, took it the repair, and reinstalled the repaired radiator. Sandy plays tennis, golf, brige, hikes, sings in the church choir, works at theater as a red coat, and at 62 years of age, she tackled another item on her bucket list in january 2012. Sandy's first recital is saturday--she is quiet an accomplished pianist already. I could relate many other stories about her but the most important one is that this beautiful woman has been wife for 43 years and the mother of our two beautiful daughters, jessica and holly.

The ice maker stopped making ice. Cold water was still available at the freezer door dispenser which seemed to isolate the problem to the ice maker control board/motor. My ice making unit was not identical to the one in the video, but close. After disconnecting the power, I was able to replace the control board/motor without having to remove the entire ice making unit. Total time for repair was under 15 minutes.

Undid the bolts to the ice maker, unplugged it and took it out of the freezer. Removed the cover, unplugged the motor and unscrewed the motor from the casing. To install new motor screw it into the casing, plug it in and replace the cover.

It was not the icemaker, instead it was the water inlet valve. I had ice in one hour. The biggest problem was getting the refrigerator from against the wall.

Shut off power,(breaker box), removed the ice container, this had the crusher, makes it easey to remove the timer assy, loosened up the upper hex head screws, removed the lower phillips screw. Dis-connect the feed wire assy. I elected to dis-connect first at the timer unit. Remove the timer cover, then access to the wire connecter,remove the heater unit on the side of the of water pan. Drop the unit out and if necessary change the wire loom at back of refrig-, install new loom if necessary, reverse process on ice unit. Took about 45 minutes +-, marked the timer dial, see if I got rotation, etc. There is ports on the face of the timer to check voltage's. Now will install new water valve , and water filter to make sure all is back to normal. Made ice on start up, excellent service, parts are great, with necessary information. Thanks, bill.
