Water running in freezer compartment

  • Customer: Larry from Raymond NE
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench set

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.

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.

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.

h2o not flowing to ice maker

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
