Ice Maker not producing any ice

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.

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.

I removed the old water inlet valve and replaced it with a new one. I had to cut the existing water lines with a razor to fit the new design of the new inlet valve. I also had to remove the inlet water valve and attach it to the new one. It was real easy once I reviewed the U tube video on how to replace the valve.

My first try was to replace the water inlet valve. New valve was a good bit different than the original but not too hard to figure out. The main water inlet is on the inside rather than the outside. Flex hose and a stick in connector were included and I was able to work through that. But, when I turned it on the water still over flowed. The only thing left was the Ice maker. I ordered a new one. It came broken into several pieces. I ordered another, it arrived overnight with expediated shipping. install took maybe 15 minutes. problem solved. The company refunded me the full charge for the damaged ice maker and most of the charge for expediated shipping on the replacement. I'm happy and my wifes very happy.

The problem with our ice maker started when it stopped making ice. It was a hit or miss problem. One day it would make a bin full then couple days later none. One morning I noticed that there was water overflowing from the ice maker which froze inside the freezer. I ordered the maker and valve after watching the videos on this site. With those videos I was able to fix the problem in no time. Ice maker has been working properly for over a week now. My wife was ready to get a new fridge but I was stubborn and wanted to see if I could fix it. Thank you to partselect.com for the fast shipping and great instructional vids.

Super simple repair, as it takes only a direct replacement of the valve. Removing and replacong the sdrews on the access cover took the majority of the repair time. Two screws retain the valve, and two electrical connections are very simple and easily reached. I would recoment using good sharp side cutters instaed of a knife to cut the three water lines.

Ice Maker Stopped Making Ice

When the Ice Maker stopped, I called a repair guy. He wanted almost $500.00 to do the job. I thanked him and paid the $75.00 fee for coming out and got on PartSelect.com to look at what he said was wrong. I ordered the parts -- they came amazingly quickly -- and looked at the videos. The hardest part was that the water valve was a complete replacement and it took a little while to figure out the changes (the old one had nuts and threads; it was completely different). In fact I almost sent it back -- it looked like the wrong part. Once I got going (after chatting with Janet in customer service -- she was awesome!), it took just about two hours to do the whole job. It works great now. My wife even thanked me -- that rarely happens!

Pulled the refridgerator out from the wall . Unplugged it and shut off the water supply. Removed the rear lower panel . Removed the 2 bolts holding the bracket to the frame. Took off all 3 plastic nuts and pulled the lines out. Had to drill the bracket hole to remove it from the smaller bracket. Cut off the ends of all 3 lines. Mounted the new valve to the bracket. Pushed the lines into the new valve connectors. Bolted the bracket back to the frame of the refridgerator. Turned on the water and checked for leaks. Reinstalled the back lower panel and plugged in the power. Tried the water and everything worked now.

I pulled the refrigerator away from the wall, unplugged the electrical cord, and turned off the water going to the refrigerator. I then removed the cover on the bottom rear of the refrigerator by removing 7 or 8 small screws. Luckily the new and old valves were exactly the same except for some color coding. There were 2 screws to remove that attached the valve to the body of the fridge. There were 3 plastic tubes that connected to the valve and 2 wiring harnesses that plugged in. Before removing them, make sure to note which tubes and wires went where. The 3 tubes on the old valve were the push in type, just like the new one. I could not pull 2 of them out like the instructions said. I had to pry them out with a screw driver. In doing so I warped about 1 inch on the end of each tube which I then cut off with a razor blade. The electrical connections pulled out easily. I then pushed each tube back into the new valve which was very easy and pushed the electrical connections in. I attached the valve to the fridge with the 2 screws, turned the water on, plugged in the electrical cord, and checked for leaks. I put the back cover on and was back in business. It took me about 40 minutes but when I was younger could have done in in half the time.
