After identifying a likely solution using other stories on this site, I ordered the replacement valve. Very easy to repair. Just move fridge, unscrew cover in lower rear and change out part located right behind cover. I decided to change the filter at the same time because I didn't know the last time it was done. It could probably be done in 5 minutes, but if your like me you clean everything while its apart.

Initially, the diagnosis arrived at through the help of the "Parts Select" website was that the valve solenoid had failed. I ordered the valve solenoid and replaced it, which was easy to do based on the video help guide located on the "Parts Select" website. But, the problem persisted. In order to verify that the new solenoid worked properly, I removed the output lines from the solenoid and breifly activated the water dispenser. Based on the significant water flow, I was convinced that the solenoid was in fact operating properly. I did not reinstall the original solenoid but I am confident that it was operating fine. So, I have a spare solenoid now. At this point, I moved downstream which took me to the water filter housing. I removed the housing from the refrigerator and reconnected it behind the refrigerator which allowed me to "play" with the assembly. I do not know what the problem was but by pressing the filter harder into the housing assembly, I could improve the water flow. I ordered the new filter housing, which comes with tubes, changed it and the water flows like new.

Just as your video described, although due to the age of the fridge, it took a bit longer to remove the defective switch. Your video made this so simple, I can't imagine why we lived with a dark fridge for so long! I was ready to buy a whole new fridge, as repairmen are often nonexistent for small repairs. I am the biggest fan of your company & it's repair video. THANK YOU SO MUCH

Gently pry out switch in door jam with screwdriver and pull both connectors off and put connectors on new switch then push switch back into the hole. Looked it up on the internet and video showed how to and also had link to new part, ordered and less than a week later the fridge is bright again. I have an older freezer also and it seems that they all use the same switches. Very Very easy

No water to door but ice maker works.

Just as described in earlier reviews, this was the filter housing unit and not the double water valve. To determine which part is failing bypass the water filter unit by disconnecting both water lines and connecting the fresh water line directly to the water valve. If this solves the problem, then you know for sure the filter housing is the problem. The filter housing has a very small tab that pushes open a rubber flap valve when a filter is installed. This allow you to remove the filter without turning off the water supply. Apparently only a very small amount of wear prevents the flap valve from opening fully and allowing water to flow. A small amount of water flow may be evident with the water dispenser but the ice maker will keep working until flow is completely interrupted. Easy fix.

Turn off the cold water at the source. Remove metal plate from back of refrigerator at the top. Disconnect the two tubes that feed the water to the filter at the bottom of the back (behind the cardboard), noting which line takes the "blue" tube. On the inside of the refrigerator, pop off the top of the filter housing and set aside. Unscrew the two screws holding the filter assembly from the inside and pull the old assembly through.. Remove the plastic stopper (unless you are not using a filter) from the new assembly.Thread the new assembly tubes from the inside to the outside and reconnect screws and replace top of filter housing. Connect the new tubes to the water supply and to the refrigerator and tighten the nuts. Replace the metal plate and screws over the black insulated part at the top. Turn on the water and check for leaks. Replace the water filter..If a 68 year old grandmother can do it, so can you.
