I have the spec sheet and it shows the solenoid/valve on it, but doesn't show where it is located on the ice maker. Need to get to this & the tubes. Frig will be pretty hard to get away from the wall so we are hoping that its located inside that box.
Sure wish this frig didn't have the ice maker, I'll never use the ice. Carry my own.
Not much on the hose water taste.
P.S. Have a Thor Class C Quantam
It would depend on which refrigerator you have installed. My 2015 Challenger has a 2 door fridge (upper/lower) and I believe some 2016 and newer models use the side by side.
On my Whirlpool the solenoid is on the lower back left (looking at the doors) and the fridge must be pulled out of the cabinet to get at the solenoid.
Here is the link that I posted regarding my saga with the ice maker earlier this year.
