What's the serial number on this unit?


I don't know at the moment. The last tech only sent me the model. Hopefully I will be going back soon.

If the blue square things are wired across each coil of the water valve harness connectors then they are not diodes, they would most likely be filter capacitors to stop the spike of voltage feeding back to electronic circuits when the coils de-energize.



I think you are right about them being capacitors. I still haven't been back to this fridge yet though.

This fridge has been fixed. We finally got someone at tech support who knew what the heck he was doing. They had us unplug the ice maker connector on the mainboard. The 120v to the primary valve was gone. Replaced shorted ice maker and all is well. Btw this was a guy at Sears tech support and not the worthless clowns at LG. Also it has to be unplugged at the board and not in the door to check this problem.

No problem. Another tech ran it and called me with the info. We have both been on it a few times and told each other to call with what we found.
