Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/GE icemaker not working


Hi Eric!

I have a GE fridge, Model # TFX25QRCBWW.  I had a leak in the fridge, turned the water supply off which was off for about 3 weeks.  I did not turn the icemaker off.  But when I turned the water back on, the icemaker would not produce ice.  I filled up the icemaker with water, and it didn't do anything.  So I replaced the icemaker, but it still won't produce ice, unless I manually fill it up.  I checked the solenoid valves, the one for the dispenser (which works) has 120 volts to it when the dispenser lever is depressed.  The icemaker solenoid always has 28 volts to it.  With power off, the icemaker solenoid resistance is about 3 ohms, but the water dispenser is about 318.

What to check next?

Replace the water inlet valve as the ice maker coil should read approximately 183 ohms.  Part number is WR57X10018 and your cost through us is 32.95 + 7.95 shipping.  Should you choose to order, follow this link to our website where you can scroll down and fill out the secure order form to process your order.  https://www.affordableappliance.com/orderform.php  If you have any problems, concerns or need further information, feel free to reply to this email or for Parts Order Only, call 570-622-6441.  Keep in mind ordering through us helps continue this free on-line help available for you and many others.  Help those that help you.
