Water dispenser/ice maker not working

  • Customer: Sierra from Seattle WA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I followed previous directions, and would recommend them! Briefly, I removed the plastic covers for the water filter, water tubes, temperature control switches to allow removal using a screwdriver and a nutdriver(I think)to remove the hexagonal screws. I also removed the water filter before beginning. I pressed the blue thingies in the back towards the base to remove the water supply lines. It was a bit tricky, and took the bulk of the repair time, but they came lose once enough pressure was applied. I took out the old filter base, put in the new one, attached the water lines, and put back all the covers. Everything comes apart very easily, and went back together very easily. A simple repair that had us back in ice and filtered water within an hour!

My part had threaded fittings. The part that I received had snap fittings. Once I realized that that snap fittings worked with the bare tubing and not any special tip endings, I simply cut off the ends of my tubing that mated with the threaded fittings. I then had bare tubing that snapped into the snap fittings. Two minutes later, the part was in place and the job was done. Problem solved.

Had a leak every night from refrigerator couldn't understand where from. Went on line and found some articles. I was referred to this sight by ads the articles and then in how to. I was pleased that a customer wrote their own instructions on what to do it was more concise clear and made preparation easier. First label towel cup and bucket needed too. Turn off water supply and electrical cord unplug then remove cover behind refrigerator vacuum and clean then. Water makes a mess so clean dry first. Then mark your hoses to remember order. Next remove old inlet and put in bucket it's pressure clamps so push in and it locks I chose to suction pipes and check for damage to pipes pin holes etc next I inserted into new inlet in order. At that time I turned water valve on checked for leaks at initial insert and new inlet. Next I plugged in unit cord. Waited. No leaks so far left for 30 minutes ran ice machine and water dispenser waited 20 minutes no leaks yet. Unplugged refrigerator unit. Installed the inlet completely to base and closed back paper panel after wiping water. Waited 24 hours then smiled no leak. Job done so far 2 weeks all clear. Hope this helps you will need screws driver and wrench for copper or main line I did find same part for less but this sight help me with good instructions the one they provide is for engineers architects lol not me I'm DYI

The changing of the water valve was pretty straight forward. First shut the water off to the ice maker, then pull the refrigerator out. Once that is done, then I removed the cardboard covering with a cordless drill, loosened the screws that held the water valve in place. The water valve assembly is colored coordinated so disconnecting and reconnecting the lines to the new valve assembly was pretty easy. Reattached the cardboard covering pushed refrigerator back and place turn on supply line and waited for the ice maker to fill up. After several cycles on the ice maker I made one slight adjustment on the ice cube size behind the cover of the ice maker. Total time one hour, then waiting for the ice maker to cycle a few times to ensure all was working properly.

After receiving the parts, I clamped on the connector ends, and put on the shrink tubes. Unplug frig, took out the shelves (4) screws, unscrewed back panel (4) screws. Took old thermostat off tube, clipped (2)wires on old thermostat, splice wires, clamped connector on old wires, moved up shrink tubes, and used a heat gun to shrink the wires. Put new thermostat on the tube the old one came off of, put panel, and the shelves back. Pugged frig in. Works great!

  • Customer: Raymond from Sinking Spring PA
  • Difficulty: Really easy

I turned off the water, removed the cardboard cover from the back of the refrigerator; removed the 2 screws holding the water valve in place; unscrewed the plastic tubing from the valve; unplugged the wires to each solenoid (3); the old valve had threaded connections for the plastic water lines, the new valve didn't; I had to cut the ferrel off of the plastic lines so I could insert them into the new valve and then press the connector into the valve (I didn't anticipate something like this, but it worked fine); I reconnected the wiring and screwed the valve back into place. The ice maker started making ice and the water stopped dripping from the dispenser. The best $65 I've ever spent.

No Ice, No Water

Turned off the refrigerator, removed the bottom drawer from refrigerator, then removed the glider bars for the drawer on the left side where the filter chamber is. Removed the filter and then removed the plastic peace guarding the filter chamber. Once that was all removed we removed the screws holding the filter base in place. Now that everything was exposed we removed the inlet and outlet lines from the filter base by pushing in the nobs inside the base and pulling the lines out with some slight elbow grease. After that we just proceeded in reverse. We plugged the filter in after the base was secure to make sure that the fix worked. The repair worked like a charm, was relatively simple and now our fridge is all better with water and ice without a large repair bill :o)
