First Shut off Water supply from wall/valve. Turned off Ice maker switch interior freezer compartment. Removed power cord from wall plug, important for safety due to close proximity of cooling fan to valve, and resets electrical cycle to new valve to start water flow to ice maker once replaced. Removed lower back cardboard access to frig with nut driver, cleaned all (dust-bunnies)from coils, drip pan and all areas under frig with shop vac. Remove 2 screws (same size nut as cardboard back) to remove valve bracket from mount. This model frig had push release connectors so was even easier than expected, push collars up and pull out tubing, (residual water came out so have towel handy) had new valve positioned exactly how would reinstall so just pushed water line into new valve connector, then repeated process for all 3 water lines. Last unplugged electrical connectors and plugged into new valve in same position. Reattached new valve to mount w/2 screws, turned on water supply to check connections for leaks. (Finding none) Plugged electrical cord back into wall, used water pitcher to cycle water thru door water dispenser, waited for first cycle of water to fill ice maker. So easy and quick. Thank you to previous people who gave directions, and Partselect for easy diagrams, ordering, and shipping quickly.

I followed the instructions in the package, after having viewed the video (from PartSelect, but you have to go to youtube for it.) Replacing the valve got the cold water flowing but there still is no water going to the ice maker.

I knew my ice maker was still working and I could hear that the switch on my water was still making the usual noise when tripped, so I knew that it had to be the inlet valve. I googled some videos and luckily found PartSelect.com. I used there diagnostics, looking at the percentages of other parts used to fix like problems. The part install was very easy as all I had to do was turn off the water and unplug the frig, remove the part, cut the input line and both output lines. Then slide those into the new part, with quick connects you just slide them in, the old part had compression fittings. Reattach the new part turn on the water, plug it back up, watch for leaks, your done..pretty sweet.

Pulled the refridgerator out from the wall . Unplugged it and shut off the water supply. Removed the rear lower panel . Removed the 2 bolts holding the bracket to the frame. Took off all 3 plastic nuts and pulled the lines out. Had to drill the bracket hole to remove it from the smaller bracket. Cut off the ends of all 3 lines. Mounted the new valve to the bracket. Pushed the lines into the new valve connectors. Bolted the bracket back to the frame of the refridgerator. Turned on the water and checked for leaks. Reinstalled the back lower panel and plugged in the power. Tried the water and everything worked now.

No Ice then overflowed water at ice maker

  • Customer: Rickey from Newalla OK
  • Difficulty: Easy

The problem with our ice maker started when it stopped making ice. It was a hit or miss problem. One day it would make a bin full then couple days later none. One morning I noticed that there was water overflowing from the ice maker which froze inside the freezer. I ordered the maker and valve after watching the videos on this site. With those videos I was able to fix the problem in no time. Ice maker has been working properly for over a week now. My wife was ready to get a new fridge but I was stubborn and wanted to see if I could fix it. Thank you to partselect.com for the fast shipping and great instructional vids.

Water overflowed icemaker

My first try was to replace the water inlet valve. New valve was a good bit different than the original but not too hard to figure out. The main water inlet is on the inside rather than the outside. Flex hose and a stick in connector were included and I was able to work through that. But, when I turned it on the water still over flowed. The only thing left was the Ice maker. I ordered a new one. It came broken into several pieces. I ordered another, it arrived overnight with expediated shipping. install took maybe 15 minutes. problem solved. The company refunded me the full charge for the damaged ice maker and most of the charge for expediated shipping on the replacement. I'm happy and my wifes very happy.

Refrigerator Door would not close on its own

Set out an area large enough to lay the door down once I took it off the refrigerator. Took off the top screws and hinge. Had my 12 year old so help me with the door and hand me all the tools so I could quickly change out the parts and not leave the Refrigerator open for too long. I think from the moment we took the door off to the moment it was back on was probably about 5-6 minutes tops. That is how easy this was. All the parts fit and thank you to PartSelect and it great website that advised me of the second part that went with the first if not I would never have known. Thanks again!!

I unloaded the door, removed the cap covering the screws at the top hinge. I removed the screws then lifted the door off the pin. Next I removed the screws holding the door cams in place. Replaced both cams and screws, set the door back on the pin then reinstalled the three screws at the top. Snapped back on the cover and I was done. Door works perfectly.

Replacing the door closing cams, starts with emptying the door of all foodstuffs. Remove upper hinge cover. While supporting the door, remove three upper hinge screws with the nutdriver. Lift upper hinge from top and lift door off lower hinge pin. Remove the cam retaining screws on both the bottom of the door and the lower hinge pin. Pry (if needed) the worn cams from their position. Install new cams making sure to line up the screw holes. Re-install screws, tightening just snug. Lift door back onto lower hinge pin. Set upper hinge back in place with screws loosely installed. Check door gap, top to bottom to ensure proper alignment. Tighten upper hinge screws and re-install hinge cover. Check door for proper function.

Refrigerator door would not close by itself

I've replaced the door cams in the past, but they didn't last very long. I finally realized on my own that both parts need to be replaced at the same time. One piece is on the case-side of the bottom hinge and the mate is on the door-side of the bottom hinge. They both have a ramp shape, with door ramp riding up the hinge ramp as you open the door. The ramp shape makes the door want to slide back down the ramp to close automatically. These are plastic parts that wear out over time. If you don't replace both at the same time, the ramp shapes don't match and they wear out quickly. They are inexpensive parts, so always replace both at the same time. I added a thin layer of petroleum jelly to help them glide better. Hopefully this fix will last a long time. It's extremely easy. First take off the top hinge of the door. Then lift the whole door off the bottom hinge. You can set it on a chair with the bottom hinge hanging over the edge of the chair. Replace the two parts, one on the door bottom hinge and one on the refrigerator case bottom hinge. Easy as pie. The only tool needed is a nut driver. You need a helper to help lift and balance the door while you work on it.

Refrigerator door would not close properly

I removed the upper hinge cover and then the the hinge itself. Then lifted the door off the lower hinge peg. I placed a blanket on my pool table and positioned the door on it. The bottom screws were a little difficult to get the nutdriver seated so I used a quarter inch drive with socket to remove the screws. The replacement Closing Cam was quickly inserted and reassembled the hinge and lubricated with vaseline. Next I removed the Door Cam that was still on the peg on the refrigerator (it was completely worn flat). Quick work for this too. I tried to set the door back on the pivot hinge but eventually I needed another person to guide the door onto the peg. Reassembled the top hinge and voila, the door works just like new.

Refrigerator Door Wouldn't Stay Closed

This is for the refrigerator, not the freezer door which is more complicated. First empty the refrigerator door of food and removed the shelves. Remove the hinge cover on the top hinge by removing one bolt. Then, holding the door, remove the top hinge by removing the three bolts in the bracket (not the bolt in the recessed hole). Lift the door off the lower hinge and lay the door on its edge on the floor. Pry the old Door Cam out of the hole in the door with a knife (my Door Cam was ground completely flat). Insert the new Door Cam. Remove the old Lower Door Cam from the lower hinge and insert the new Lower Door Cam. Pick up the door and lower the door onto the lower hinge ensuring the lower hinge pin inserts into the hole in the Door Cam on the door. Reinstall the upper hinge and insert bolts without tightening. Align door and then tighten hinge bolts. Reattach top hinge cover and tighten the single bolt. Test the door to ensure it closes and stays closed. I had to remove the door a second time to rotate the Door Cam slightly to ensure cams were better engaged (tongue in groove style) when the door was closed. Reinstall the shelves and load the door with food.

Very loud clicking noise when opening/closing door

I did it a bit different from instructions mainly because I disassembled it to troubleshoot before going on line to find part and "easier" instructions.I had a 5" block of wood and cut a shim to use with that to hold the door up. I got on my hands and knees with a mirror and removed the lower hinge plate then the screws holding the upper and lower cams. These both were quite worn so I just took them to my shop and with a hand grinder I rounded off the sharpo corners of the cogs of both cams and then reassemble the hinge plate and cams. This eliminated the loud clicking and the door closed easily but I was afraid it woulod not "Auto Close" when needed so I went online to find this page with the parts needed along with wonderful instructions. I ordered both upper and lower cams which came 2 days later (THANKS). I installed them my way since I did not want to empty the door contents and remove the whole door. I used the block, mirror and nut driver to R&R the bottom hinge plate and both cams. Time was still less than 15 minutes, Easy Fix, Thanks guys! Cheers, Ben
