243297606 ice maker
« on: November 28, 2017, 02:47:56 PM »

 I replaced ice maker# 243297606 in a fridge.Day later no ice cubes in bin.The arm should drop down on its own on that  model
should it not?I haven,t had an ice maker yet that didn,t have power to it.

Hi
   Did some testing & found the water line to icemaker was froze up.Had the icemaker removed so I  forced
some warm water back up into line with a syringe.Haven,t seen a frozen line for years.
 Thanks a million for your help.

I've run into several frozen lines. According to tech support, double up the gasket on the top of the box around the water inlet will prevent freezing. Has worked for me so far.

No, on the top of the box, right above the icemaker.
