Have a Frigidaire FRS26ZSGB4 that has been in loyal service for about 12 years with very few issues.

Recently, the ice maker started to make less ice and eventually stopped altogether.

Around a month later, I started noting a loud buzzing while trying to dispense water and now that function no longer works either.

After poking around the forum for a while, I found that the likely culprit is the water inlet valve, but my luck it appears there are two of them on this unit and they are around $50 apiece.

Water Inlet Valve

Item #452316

So, based on the description above, whioch one should I replace first? Or is there a good way to isolate the faulty one?

The second one seems the be the primary valve, witht the first is the secondary, so I'm thinking #452316 is my best bet, but I hate just swapping parts and praying...

Thanks! -Phil

... Recently, the ice maker started to make less ice and eventually stopped altogether.
... is there a good way to isolate the faulty one?

1) Freezer needs to be at +15F or colder for the IceMaker to work
2) water lines may be frozen somewhere ...
disconnect output of either Water Valve and have a bucket ready to catch the water while activating the Valve

There's also Diodes in the Water Valve circuits

Thanks for the guidance - I just printed the schematic and will give it whirl.
