  • Customer: Donald from Kissimmee FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Followed recommendations from others but went with most likely by percentage = Defrost Timer Kit. Did not solve issue. Then went with Bi-Metal Thermostat and that did not fix the problem. Tested the thermostat as recommended on line and old part was bad, new part OK. Then I saw on line that I should have listened for Fan operation. I checked and found the fan Motor to be defective. Replaced the motor and Refrigerator worked fine. Both the Motor and Bi-Metal Thermostat were required. Should have checked fan operation first.

Hi, this was an easy repair job. And, after I was done I felt like McGyver. It took me about 1 hour. The hardest part was getting ice maker's power source disconnected. That was tricky; you have to remove the housing that covers the power connector.

Unplug appliance, turn off water supply valve to fridge. Remove rear cover and locate water inlet valve on lower right corner. Remove 2 screws holding valve in place. Pay attention to water line locations. Unplug 2 connections on valve. They are different size so you can't put them back on wrong. Remove all lines from bad valve. Cut all ends off lines and insert into new valve. Make sure they go where they belong. Press firmly into place. Reconnect electrical plugs and screw valve back in place. Turn water supply valve back on and check for leaks. If all is good put rear cover back on , plug appliance back in and your work is done. Easy replacement job.

I first ordered an inlet valve. It arrived EARLIER THAN PROMISED. I then went back online to check for installation tips. While reading tips for installing the inlet valve I read that the Ice Maker Controller accounts for 48% of failures. I performed the simple test you recommended by connecting the wires from the water dispenser coil to the inlet valve coil to determine if the inlet vale is working correctly. Sure enough, the valve allowed water to go to the ice maker. I immediately went back online and ordered a controller. The controller took about 30 minutes to install.

Water would continue to drip from the water spout after filling your glass with water.

The water inlet valve was easy to replace. Just like the video shows. With one exception. I found the two metal brackets were tough to get apart because they were riveted together. So I took the drill with a 5/16 bit and drilled the rivet apart. It might have come apart without drilling but I was afraid of bending the brackets. You don't need to drill clear through both brackets. Just the clean the head of the rivet. It was quick and easy. The bit size is not important just so it is bigger than the rivet head.

Found that the water fill tube from from the water line was frozen

from the back of the freezer unscrewed the water feed to the feed tube. unscrewed the tube from the freezer and removed it. Ran hot water through the fill tube and then reinstalled the tube back into the freezer. Cycled the ice maker and the water started filling the icemaker. Did not use the water inlet valve that I ordered. Matter of fact.. I returned it. Always remember to check the fill tube and make sure it is not frozen.
