My Ice Maker stopped making ice and the water dripped from the dispenser

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.

pulled the old seals off one at a time and starting from the top of each door, pressed the top edge of the seal into the groove, using the quik clamps to hold the top in palce at each top corner, went down each side of the door and pressed the seal into the groove, when I reached the bottom, I moved the clamps to the bottom and used thm to help press the seal into the bottom groove, Each door took about 15 min.

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)

Freezer leaked, no water disp. & Crusher didnt crush

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

First I defrosted the entire unit, both sides for 24 hours. Restarted, I now have water dispensing. (It had apparently frozen) Next I took out the ice crushing part and took it apart, (a few screws) by removing the broken floppy piece; the small plastic floppy door that allows ice to crush, replaced this small piece, rather than replacing the entire big plastic piece that I ordered. Used a slot screw driver removed the old floppy piece that was broken and removed the same piece from the new one and switched them out. Reassembled the entire unit (a few screws), put the ice back in and it works great. I got the instructions for taking apart this from this site, however, it was fairly easy to figure out. Just be patient with the plastic parts.

Removed old water pump and cut off ends of all lines. Plugged them into each water inlet/outlet and turned it on. Instant water to dispenser but took about 6 hours for ice maker to get water. Had to prime the ice maker. Works great and saved a lot of money ordering parts from you. Thanks.

not freezing, refrigerator not cooling, back of freezer icing up

I first determined the problem. I found PartSelect.com through online search. I ordered the part online Sunday morning. Part arrived Tuesday afternoon(Christmas eve) and I installed it that night! Now I am a gal mind you, but I am pretty handy. I pulled out the fridge, unplugged it and removed the back panel, easy. Then I used a heat gun on low the defrost the 'defroster' which had REALLY iced up bad. It had iced up so much,in fact, it had disconnected the evaporator fan connection. I clipped the wires. Stripped the ends, slid on the shrink tubing supplied, connected the wires with the crimp connectors and heated the shrink tube. I also put another piece of shrink tube on the fan connector so it would be more secure. Put the panel back on, plugged it back in and started working like a champ!! I am so proud of myself and likely saved at least $250.00 on a service call! Total cost for this repair, $22.00!! :D

The refrigerator's In-door water dispenser leaked water. The leakage started out slow and over a period of time increased.

This was the first time I ever installed a water inlet valve in a refrigerator. I viewed the Parts Select youtube repair video that is available online. In fact, I viewed it a couple times. Ultimately, the actual installation of the water inlet valve went exactly as shown in the youtube video. I did not experience any problems with the installation and was quite happy with the experience.

1. Turn off water in line to refrigerator. 2. disconnect hose from refrigerator. 3. Remove back cardboard panel at bottom of refrigerator. 4 Remove 2 screws holding in the valve assembly at bottom right. 5. best way I found to remove hoses (all color coded) is to cut with razor knife at the white collar. cut clean and square. 6. disconnect electrical (also color coded) 7. connect hoses to valve assembly by pushing hose firmly into hole. If you are familiar with PEX then this is the same. Reconnect electrical. Reconnect to refrigerator... 3,2,1 your done. It will take a couple cycles to get the air out of the lines.

Followed the instructions from another person in the Part Select water valve section and from the video on the same page. Excellent instructions and very easy installation. Water dispenser and ice maker began performing properly as soon as the refrigerator was plugged back in to the power.

If this happens to you the first thing I would do is shut off the freezer and, using a hair dryer, melt the ice in the ice maker and heat up the water inlet to make sure it is not froze up. Turn the freezer back on and wait to see if that cures the problem. If not, order the new water inlet valve and follow the simple instructions in the video provided on the PartSelect website. I have never have a more pleasant experience with any parts/repair service than I did with PartSelect. After ordering that part it came within the time they stated and their help with the install was great. Also helpful were the other customers talking about their problems and solutions.Thanks to PartSelect I now have Ice and a happy wife. Happy wife--happy life.

Quite making ice

The new inlet valve came with pisco connectors so had to cut the end of the tubes off. Before doing this I marked all the tubes to make sure they were replaced in the correct order. The pisco connectors are great to use and very quick. The total install time was about 20 to 30 minutes. While you have the back of the frig off make sure you vaccuum the fan and coils. It was making ice in less than 20 minutes.
