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.

Replaced the water inlet valve. Note: although the web site shows the exact same water inlet valve, the replacement is somewhat different. You'll notice the electric prongs are facing in the opposite direction then the old one. It works like a charm need not worry as I did when I saw that. The old part is actually two parts in one. Use care when separating the front piece (it acts like a coupling where the water supply connects to and simply comes out the other side and into the refrig.) from the water inlet valve. It was a tight fit coupling that front piece to the new valve but it will fit. Make certain you purge 1-2 gallons of water before consuming any. Also dump a tray or two of ice cubes.

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.

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.

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.
