Recently the ice maker stopped working. It is not the original, as it has been replaced several times over the years.
I replaced both the ice maker and the water valve. It is still not working. I then decided to defrost it to make sure the fill line wasn’t frozen, so I left the entire unit unplugged for 6-8 hours, then reconnected everything.
The water line is good with good pressure. To test the valve functionality I took an electrical extension cord and attached spade connectors to one end and attached these to the ice maker. I then applied direct power to the water valve by plugging in this cheater cord for a 7 second count, and the ice tray filled with water, confirming that I have adequate water pressure, and that the fill line is patent and able to flow water to the ice tray.
What else should I test or trouble shoot? I have a repairman coming out tomorrow if all else fails, but I would really like to try to fix this myself.
Thanks in advance.
