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.

Researched in "ehow" the procedure. Looked relatively simple so I ordered the part. When it arrived, emptied the frig, pulled it out, thawed out the auto ice maker with a hair dryer. I then examined the old part and compared it to the new part. They were close. Old part had a rivet attaching it to another bracket which had a primary valve that led to the filter cartridge housing. I had to drill out the rivet to seperate the mounting brackets. The electrical connectors were rear facing on the old unit and front facing on the new unit. Not a big problem, just concerned that the solenoid leads might be polarity specific. I called my brother who works on restaurant equipment and he said that as long as the long were the same color, polarity was not an issue. He was right. The second concern I had was that the plastic line from the primary input valve was a stiffer gray plastic line with a rib molded on the ended to secure a metal compression nut. I wondered again if that would cause a problem with the new pressure connector. It did not. Just cut off the rid and slide it in. Frig is working great, dispensing water and ice like it was new. Bought the frig for $1,000 13 years ago, now sells for $2,500. Save a ton of money by buying the part and doing it myself. Thanks.

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.

Water overflowed icemaker

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.

Pull out the refridgerator from the wall. Unplug the fridge and turn off water supply. Remove the cardboard cover from the bottom of the back side of the fridge. The valve assembly is on the bottom right side of the the fridge when looking at the back. Remove the valve assembly. remove the color coded electrical connectors. Push in the quick disconnect fitting on the valves and gently pull the tubes out of each valve, if it won't come out you can cut the lines, just make sure they are nice and clean and straight. The new part was a perfect fit. Push the tubing in to the size matched valve inlets reconnect the electrical connections reattach valve assembly to the fridge, next open the freezer door and lift the ice make door and take you a hair dryer,turn it on and hold it about 1-2 inches away from the rubber hose that is used to fill the ice maker for about 2-3 minutes to remove the ice blockage. Once it is clear, turn on the water check for leaks and verify correct operation of water and ice. Reinstall the card board, push the fridge back into place. and enjoy a cool beverage and pat your self on the back cause you just fixed your ice maker!

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.

My water dispenser quit on the door.

I knew my ice maker was still working and I could hear that the switch on my water was still making the usual noise when tripped, so I knew that it had to be the inlet valve. I googled some videos and luckily found PartSelect.com. I used there diagnostics, looking at the percentages of other parts used to fix like problems. The part install was very easy as all I had to do was turn off the water and unplug the frig, remove the part, cut the input line and both output lines. Then slide those into the new part, with quick connects you just slide them in, the old part had compression fittings. Reattach the new part turn on the water, plug it back up, watch for leaks, your done..pretty sweet.

I followed the instructions in the package, after having viewed the video (from PartSelect, but you have to go to youtube for it.) Replacing the valve got the cold water flowing but there still is no water going to the ice maker.

First Shut off Water supply from wall/valve. Turned off Ice maker switch interior freezer compartment. Removed power cord from wall plug, important for safety due to close proximity of cooling fan to valve, and resets electrical cycle to new valve to start water flow to ice maker once replaced. Removed lower back cardboard access to frig with nut driver, cleaned all (dust-bunnies)from coils, drip pan and all areas under frig with shop vac. Remove 2 screws (same size nut as cardboard back) to remove valve bracket from mount. This model frig had push release connectors so was even easier than expected, push collars up and pull out tubing, (residual water came out so have towel handy) had new valve positioned exactly how would reinstall so just pushed water line into new valve connector, then repeated process for all 3 water lines. Last unplugged electrical connectors and plugged into new valve in same position. Reattached new valve to mount w/2 screws, turned on water supply to check connections for leaks. (Finding none) Plugged electrical cord back into wall, used water pitcher to cycle water thru door water dispenser, waited for first cycle of water to fill ice maker. So easy and quick. Thank you to previous people who gave directions, and Partselect for easy diagrams, ordering, and shipping quickly.
