How do I get to the icemaker?
« on: October 01, 2015, 11:28:01 AM »

Model WRF736SDAM11, don't see a service manual on Servicematters. They are on a well and had a power outage. I suspect water got past the inlet valve and froze in the fill tube. The icemaker will cycle on diagnostics. I can hear the hum of the water in diagnostics, but no fill. How do I get access to the icemaker and fill tube? Thanks.

tgoods, did you try posting a image in the first post?
All I see is a gray circle things at the end of your text, but when I look at the code in your text it looks as if there should maybe be a image.

Believe I seen that happen on another one of your post so I'm just trying to figure out what's going on.

Thanks,

I feel like this unit was specifically designed to put your heart in your throat while you try not to break any small plastic tabs while pulling off panels.... >:(

nada for me.
I hate this stupid thing. I see so many issues with this type of fridge. Air leaks causing no ice, over fills for the ice maker due to bad program, sealed system failures due to leaks in the ff evap, optic failures in the ice bin.

HATE that fridge!!!

Thanks Dab, that video is what I needed. I'm sure I could've figured it out but I was running late and the customer let me off the hook.


My phone save pictures to Google photo. I grabbed the URL and used the Insert Image icon. Let's try dropbox.
