Water flow to ice maker quit & door switch wouldn't stop

  • Customer: Darryl from Howell MI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
Needed special "Torques" tool to remove front panel from refrigerator door not a problem, however, some folks may not have this type of tool. Replaced rubber actuator pad and DID NOT replace limit switch. Old pad was worn out & wouldn't reset. Replaced water outlet valve this fixed the water flow to the ice maker. Had to guess if this was the problem. I guessed right as the water flow to the door water point was working but the ice maker water flow was not. I also used a special tube cutter (I had one) to cut the water tubes to get a clean cut. Most of the time was spent on vacuuming the underside of the frig. Bottom line the ice maker works again!

Valve Leaking

  • Customer: Betsy from Zimmerman MN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Wrench set
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
The valve on the frig cracked when the frig was in freezing temps during a move.
The part was slightly different than the picture on the parts website due to a design change that eliminated the Y in the water line created only one connection on the valve where there used to be two. I found this out reading on other websites.
This design change also resulted in a part number change, but because this website had such good pics and views, I was able to determine the part was right. We received the part within 3 days and installation was easy. We eliminated the Y in the line and attached the fittings.

Water dispenser not working

  • Customer: Christopher from Ponte Vedra Beach FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 3 of 6 people found this instruction helpful
First I unpluged the frigerator, then I turned off the water. Then I removed the the black cover from the bottom back of the frig. The valves are located on the bottom right. Unscrew the bracket that is holding the two valves. I then removed the bottom valve from the bracket, unplug the electrical connections, and connect to the new valve.
To remove the water lines from the valves just move the white ring around on top of the valve and pull the line out and insert into the new one when ready. (the valves are the same colors) Do the same to the top valve, mount back to the bracket, then mount the bracket to the frig, hook up your water line to the valve, turn on the water and check for leaks, plug it in. Then put a glass under the water dispenser and try it out, it'll take a few seconds to get the water running through.
PartSelect was very quick on getting me my parts, TWO days, couldn't believe it. Very good examples of parts on web page.
Very satisfied and will use again.

Ice dispenser door would not open

  • Customer: Bob from Christiansburg VA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
Repair was a breeze, just like in the provided directions. Removed the trim and wood panels, accessed the door, removed the panel, replaced the solenoid and put it all back together-piece of cake! Unfortunately, about 45 minutes after putting everything back together, water started shooting out of the dispenser and would not shut off. All of the controls became non-functional. I opened the freezer door and that made it quit shooting water. Had to remove the dispenser panel again and unplug the power to it. Have not had a chance to trouble shoot further. Did note the new solenoid seemed very warm to the touch. Did it possibly short something out?

I reviewed the instructions which were very clear and began. I removed the catch tray to access the two screws. I removed those and lifted the front off. I then removed the three screws holding the dispenser unit and gently pulled the unit out. I then disconnected the two electric connnections and removed the dispenser unit from the refrigerator. The ice door tab was broken, so I really just needed to replace the door, but since I received the other new parts in the kit, I went ahead and replaced those as well. The directions were very specific, just make sure that the spring is inserted correctly. I then reinstalled the unit. When I finished, I tried it but the door would not shut properly. I disassembled the unit again and found that the spring had come loose. Looking back , I probably knocked it loose when I was installing the water tube back into place. I reassembled, making sure that the spring was installed correctly, and everything worked fine.

fountain (water & ice) switch sticks when actuated

  • Customer: James T from Vicksburg MS
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
1. Unplug refrigerator and remove fountain drip tray.
2. Remove the two #15 torx head screws that were covered by the drip tray.
3. Pull the bottom of the trim panel out and push up to remove panel and then unplug switch circuit board connector..
4.Remove the three screws (same size as the other two) and then remove the switch, ice door, etc assembly and unplug the connector.
5. Aside. At this time I extended the water hose which has been short since new. Used a couple of inches of 1/4 inch plastic tube. Heated it with boiling water and slipped it over the existing tube to extend it about 1/2 inch. Now the water flows in a uniform predictable stream.
6.Remove the tiny phillips screw holding the switch in place.
7.Remove and replace the old switch and actuator pad and screw. Check operation of switch. I lubricated the surface between the switch actuator bar and the rubber with a little plastilube(white) grease. Probably highly optional.
8.Replace and replug the assembley. Tuck the actuator pad around the edges if needed. Remember to turn the screws CCW until they fall into the old threads and then tighten them until snug.
9.Plug in and mount trim and connect refrigerator.

I called and described my problem to a local refrigerator repairman and he told me what the problem sounded like. After ordering what I thought to be the correct parts, I just followed the video provided by PartSelect, which made it quite simple. I have purchased parts from this company in the past and made repairs which have saved me a considerable amount. This is a terrific company for us single women!

The repair went just as the short video showed. The paper instructions included with the part were not too good the photos were copies of copies from years ago with all the detail gone. But with the video on your website it was a snap for anyone with some mechanical skills.
