Consulted with a service tech and he said there is no way you can put the water valve in incorrectly since all three fittings are of different size. Followed the normal disassembly procedure shutting off the water, electricity, and took unit off the ref. The main confusion is attaching the plastic lines of different size back into the valve. THERE ARE NO INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH THE VALVE Instead of screwing the diff size lines back into the unit, you have to cut the line (not too much) which removes the nuts, and plug them straight back into the unit. SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE FOR A WATER CONNECTION. The tech emphasized the cut has to be STRAIGHT/FLUSH witht the inlet and continuous or it will leak.
Tested it for three days with no leaks and put it back in reverse order How come all water connections can't be that easy?
