Very weak water pressure from dispenser, hollow ice cubes

I diagnosed the problem by checking the water flow at the supply valve and hose by disconnecting the hose from the back of the fridge. Found the pressure to be adequate. I then reconnected the supply hose and removed the cardboard backing from the fridge and removed the nuts holding the water inlet valve to the chassis. I loosened the first hose that runs from the bottom of the valve and had my wife activate the valve by pushing the water switch on the front of the fridge. Water basically sputtered out of the valve and I decided that was where the problem was. I ordered the valve from partselect. When it arrived I thought it was the wrong part because it had push-fittings whereas my original valve was all thumb screws. I took a chance and one by one used a utility knife to cut the hose free of the old valve as close to the nut as possible. Connecting them to the new valve was a piece of cake! Just make sure the hose bottoms out when you push it in. I turned the water back on, no leaks! Plugged the fridge in and pushed it back to the wall. After a bit of air bled out I had a strong flow of wateragain like new! The next day the ice cubes were solid again! We use the filtered water so many times a day and had been so frustrated with the slow water flow we had considered donating the fridge and buying a new one; thanks to this easy fix we expect keep it for years to come!

Pulled fridge away from wall and unplugged. Turned off main water supply feed and removed fitting from water inlet valve. Took off back panel by removing 3 screws. Took out 2 screws holding valve to fridge. Pulled off color coded wire clips. Unscrewed each water tube connector. New valve had quick connectors so had to snip off flared ends of tubing with utility knife. Pushed tubing firmly into new valve fittings and pulled to ensure connection. Reattached wiring and reattached valve to fridge with the 2 screws. Reconnected water feed line and turned on main water feed. Checked for leaks before replacing back panel. Done. No more dripping from water dispenser.

Ice Maker stopped working

  • Customer: Charles from Fishkill NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Realized Ice Maker was not getting water during it's cycle and suspected water valve based on other posts to this web site. My fridge is 9 years old and the tubes connecting the valve were plastic screw on type. The new valve did not have threads to accept the nuts. Turns out all I had to do was cut the nuts off and insert the water tubes into the valve which auto-locked the tubes to the valve. Ice maker now works great.

ice maker was cycling, but no water was getting in

Pulled out the fridge from the wall, unplugged it, and turned off the water supply. Took off the cardboard backing at the bottom of the fridge. Cleaned the dust and gunk. Unscrewed the old valve. Unplugged the 3 electrical connections. Since the new fittings for the water lines were different, we unscrewed the old ones, lopped off the nipples, and inserted the ends of the water lines into the new connections (they were super easy - just push the line in until it clicks). Reattached the valve. Reattached the cardboard. Turned water back on, and plugged in the fridge. Our ice maker still didn't make cubes, though. So I took out the fill valve from the top rear of the fridge. It had a tiny piece of ice lodged in the bend of the back, right above where it connected to the water line. I rinsed it out, reinstalled, and now we have a full bucket of ice!!

Water was leaking where filter fit into filter base

  • Customer: Nathan from Dickson TN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I was able to take away the trim covering the parts with a nutdriver. The base was disconnected using a phillips head screwdriver. The only real issue was how to disconnect the plastic water lines from the old base and connect them to the new one. I finally realized I just had to cut the lines where they entered the filter base because they would not pull out. I then finally understood that to install them into the new base I just had to push them in securely. The lines were long enough to do this but probably would not be long enough to install another filter base. In that event I do not know what all would have to be done. The leak had been going on for years (it only leaked when water was running to the ice machine or water dispenser). It is great having it repaired and we hope to get quite a few more years out of this old fridge.

Repair as illustrated was right on. Repair was easy. No problem except still no water for ice or drinking. The valve was not the problem.Filter was replaced prior to valve replacement. Must be a electric switch some where. 3 yrs ago I have replaced the water activation plastic lever for drinking which was a bit difficult and it turned out ok.

Water dispenser/ice maker not working

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!
