Remove items from Freezer, remove panel and defrost condensor coils (most time consuming part of the job). Defrost Heater is held in with two screws and two electrical connectors (remove by hand or with pliers). It's worth replacing the Defrost theromostat and Defrost heater at the same time. Only cost $60 for the two parts and will ensure you have the fix. Use the "outdoor" wire nuts when splicing in the Defrost thermostat, that will ensure you don't have any issues with moisture at the splice. When defrosting the condensor coils, soak up water as the catch tray won't hold the volume of water that will melt off the coils.

I found about an inch of water on the floor. Even when I turned the icemaker off the water continued coming out. The dispenser worked at this time. Replacing the valve was simple. Watch the video and recreate. My 6 year old helped out with most of it. Ice maker works great now, no leaks.

This is a cabinet depth fridge which fits snugly into its space in the kitchen. The worst part of any repair is pulling it out into the center of the kitchen and pushing it back in. After that we took off the back cover and the part is at the lower left rear corner of the unit. It was obviously spewing water. We shut off the water to the unit and ordered a new part. When the part came, we pulled the unit back out and disconnected it. The most difficult part was that one of the connections required a half inch open-end wrench to loosen/tighten. The other connections were the pull push quick connect type. The actual repair was very easy. There are other repairs associated with the leak that will not be easy. Damaged wood floor.

First I turned the water supply off to the fridge.Next, I let a little water out from the supply line & into a container in order to rule out a faulty line or valve. Since I was able to get water from that, I figured I had three possibilities left to work on. I already intended on replacing the water filter so other than replacing the entire icemaker I would order the water valve. I ended up spending approximately around $60 for both items but could have saved more $ if I had bought the water filter from you guys. I was familiar due to past experiences involving the water valve but I did read some of the experiences that was printed online and thought that was a plus and because of your self help guidance it enables an average Joe to repair an appliance without being sent to the poor house. Thank you immensely and Look forward to doing my part shopping on line & thru your company. Yours truly, Steve

Excess water was seeping into the ice maker through the fill tube in back. Reading repair stories here on Parts Direct quickly led me to the water solenoid fill valve. I ordered it and received it in two days. The video here on Parts Direct showed how to change the valve and armed with that information it was an easy 20 minute job. Problem is fixed and the ice maker works flawlessly.

Disconnected power cord and turned off water supply. Then I removed rear metal cover on back bottom of refrigerator. I put a towel under 2 water lines, removed water line from wall into valve, removed screw holding water valve, removed both water lines by pushing in on connector and pulling out on the line, removed each electical connector. Then I reversed the process. I did cut about a half inch using a carpet knife from the two water lines entering the bottom of the dual inlet valve. Before putting the metal cover on I turned on refrigerator and water to check for leaks. Notes to remember are that electrical connectors are color coded and 2 bottom water lines are different diameters.

My water dispenser was working very slowly, and the ice maker was not working at all.

I called Parts Express, and explained my problem. The representative, She asked if I was getting water in the tray, and I was not. She said that if I wasn't getting water there, then my problem was probably the Dual Inlet Water Valve. I poured some water directly into the tray, and the ice maker made a tray of ice, and dumped it in less than an hour. So, I then ordered the Dual inlet water Valve. My ice maker is working perfect, and I am getting better water pressure from my water dispenser as well. Thank you for your assistance.
