water leak behind refrigerator

Identified very small stream of water shooting out of center of blue plastic housing where the icemaker/water dispenser hose connects to external water source. A flashlight up close made it possible to see the water stream, after removing the steel cover from the lower back of the refrigerator. You remove the black and white hoses by PRESSING in on the white plastic rings. I unplugged power before removing/reconnecting the 2 electrical connections with needle nose pliers. Replacing this thing stopped the leak, but I also had to change the circuit board to solve the icemaker water dispenser issues. I also replaced the vampire tap on the house supply line with a shut off valve so I could do this repair without shutting off the house water supply. I did have to shut it down to install the valve, but now I can shut off the refrigerator water supply when needed to replace the filter.

The video explained everything step by step. Repair was easy and only took less than 10 minutes. The ice maker didn't work until several hours later. I would imagine it would have to freeze the ice first. By the next morning it was making ice. Thank you for sharing the video.

Turns out replacing the part was not needed. Still did not work. Opened freezer and hit inside of door with hairdryer to thaw out frozen water line. Wish I would have done that first. Water works fine now.

Changing the water solinoid was quick and easy but not the problem! After still not getting water to the ice maker,I took the ice maker itself out of the freezer.I could hear something small rattling arround inside the plastic housing.As I took it apart I found a tiny white piece of plastic inside the size of grain of rice.It had broken off the end of an arm that rides on a cam of the electric timer.Without that little plastic tit riding on the cam,it make the maker out of sink! I fixed it by drilling a .080 hole in the spot the piece had broken off.Then I took apart an old broken fishing reel for a screw to use in place of the broken off piece.I re-installed everything and the ice maker has been working as good as new and will hopefully out live the fridge.My solinoid is now a good spare part!! Dan

Water running in freezer compartment

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

Original equipment valve ran from 2003 to 2010 until a mouse got on top of valve and did a number. Valve purchased in 2010 (installed to solve the same water flow problem occuring in 2012) was installed. I constructed a small tin shield over the valve unit in 2010 to protect the top of the valve from future possible damage. Two years later, the valve failed again - water flowing in freezer. (These Chineese replacement parts should really last longer than two years - I feel they insure future sales by making them poorly) - Both times, the outlet tube above the ice maker was completely iced up and a good deal of time was spent with a hair dryer to melt this ice. (This ice problem can be observed by looking across top of freezer compartment to observe the water outlet area. Turn off water supply and unplug fridge. Four screws were removed to get to the ice maker and then two top screws were removed to pull out ice maker unit (I left hose attached and unit hanging with some support) When installing the double valve, I blew on the loose water tube going up to the ice maker to be sure it was ice free. Taking the old double valve unit out was simple, just remember to press in on the plastic structure around the plastic tubes before pulling out the water tubes. Reattach electrical connections. Press the plastic tubes in as far as they will go for a water tight connection. Reinstall water supply hose and tighten nut. With ice melted, reinstall ice maker with two screws and the front ice maker panel with four screws. Plug in the fridge, turn on the water and you should have ice again as soon as the freezer gets down to 15 degrees.

Icemaker stopped and leaking

Repair was fairly straight forward once I diagnosed what the problem was by reading other peoples problems and repairs on here. I pulled the fridge out & disconnected the power. I shut off the water supply and disconnected it. I removed the back panel and unscrewed the bracket holding the water valve in place then disconnected the electrical connectors from the solenoids that control the valves. At this point I went on a cleaning binge to remove all dust and crud I could get into my vacuum, which is why it took me longer than others. I know it is important to keep the machinery clean so that it can run efficiently so I did it. At this point I used the hairdryer to melt the frozen inlet to the icemaker from the back of the freezer just enough so I could pull it out and remove the frozen blockage. Reinserted the inlet ensuring it was fully reseated in the opening with the foam seal snugly around it. I reinserted the tubes in their respective valve outlets (each is unique size so they cannot be done wrong), next I reassembled the new solenoid valve by reattaching the electrical connectors (mine are keyed which makes it stupid proof) then screwing its bracket back in place. Next I reconnected the water and plugged in the fridge to check for leaks. No leaks (WHEW!!) replace backplate and put fridge back in cubby. Test water dispenser- GOOD. Turn icemaker back on in "quick ice" mode and wait ~40-45 min first batch is GOOD. 5 hours later with about 6-7 batches of ice, all is well- no leaks everything is functional and I am happy.
