In Topic: Viking Bottom freezer fridge - ice maker water valve replacement

15 May 2013 - 01:12 PM

So, from what I can tell from the service manual, V-N should show 500 to 1500 ohms resistance if operating correctly, and power off ie freezer door open.


V-N shows 0 ohms when freezer door is open (power off to ice maker)


Is there any way to check that power is being fed to the water valve through one of the probe points on the ice maker module?  I think if I short T-H to activate the ice maker, attach my multimeter probes to V and N, I should get 120V after I close the door, and the ice maker motor makes it around to the water valve activation portion.




Its very hard to get to the water valve.  I would prefer not to have to take everything apart only to find that the water valve is fine, and it's something else.
