Refrigerator and freezer was not cooling sufficiently due to an inoperative evaporator cooling fan. Replacing the mini evaporator fan was extremely easy. Here are the steps needed to replace the fan. Step 1: Unplug refrigerator/freezer main power cord from the electric wall outlet. Step 2: Remove the food rack from the freezer compartment. Step 3: Using a 1/4" nut driver, remove the (2) 1/4" screws that hold the freezer vent panel/temperature control in place. Step 4: After removing the screws, disconnect the motor's wire harness connector which is located on the top left corner behind the freezer's vent panel/temperature control. Step 5: Pull away the entire vent panel/temperature control panel and lay it flat on a table. Step 6: Remove the vent cover from the main panel by holding the left side and the right side of the vent cover and squeeze both ends at the same time. Step 7: With the motor now being visible pull the motor's fan blade straight off. Step 8: Using the 1/4" nut driver, remove the (2) screws that hold the motor bracket to the rear of the main panel. Step 9: Using the 1/4" nut driver remove the (2) screws that hold the motor to the bracket and the (1) ground wire screw. Step 10: Install new motor back onto the bracket with the original (2) screws and the (1) ground wire screw onto the same locations.Step 11: Re install the (2) screws that mount the fan bracket to the back of the main vent panel.Step 12: Push the motor's original fan blade back on the shaft until it's fully seated. Step 12: Snap back in place the small vent panel back onto the main panel. Step 13: Push in place until you hear a click, the motor's wiring harness connector back onto the top left corner of the freezer's main power wire harness connector. Step 13: Push the main vent panel until it's in place and then reinstall with the original (2) 1/4" screws. Step 14: Reinstall the freezer's food rack back in place. Step 15: Plug in the main power cord into the wall outlet. Get ready to enjoy ice cold drinking water and a super cold freezer. Pete,your weekend mechanic

Our refrigerator was not cooling below 50 degrees but the freezer had no problems. Turns out that the evaporator fan motor was dead.

This was probably the easiest repair I have done on this refrigerator. I pulled the unit away from the wall, turned off the water, and disconnected the hose. I have a wooden floor in my kitchen so I was careful to put a towel under the hose and valve. Very little water drained out but I kept the towel there for insurance. After removing the access panel, I removed the two screws holding the valve in place, slid it back to where I could unplug the wiring connected to it. The connectors are color coded so there is no worry about putting them back incorrectly. The new valve uses push-in type water connections, so you have to cut the old style connections off of the plastic water lines. Kitchen shears did this easily. Then is was just a matter of pushing each line into the proper connector on the valve, reattach the electrical connectors, and slide the valve back in place. Reinstall the screws, reinstall the access panel, hook up the water hose, slide the unit back into it's niche, and run about a gallon of water through the dispenser and you are done.

When the ice maker was filling the ice tray with water, the water would come out the water dispenser at the same time.

First I watched the PartSelect installation video. Then unplugged the power and shut off the water valve on the wall. I used a 1/4" nut driver and removed (4) screws on the back bottom cover of the refrigerator and removed the cover. I removed the (2) mounting screws on the back lower right side of the refrigerator and removed the triple water valve assembly. I then marked the (4) water lines and (3) solenoid connectors with numbers, to make sure they get connected back in the same place, and then I removed them. I used a retractable blade knife to cut the ends of the water lines perpendicular. I pushed the (4) water lines into the valve holes and plugged the solenoid connectors back onto the new triple valve assembly. I mounted the new triple valve, put the back cover on, turned on the water, checked for water leaks. There were no leaks.Then I plugged in the power and waited for it to fill up the ice tray. It works perfectly now ! And it was really easy ! Thank You PartSelect for making this repair easy for me.

used videos and followed instructions to repair. The water inlet valve was first changed because no ice was being made. Changed ice maker due to no cycle and no sound came from it. The water filter was then changed due to length of time since last changed. Plugged up refrigerator and turned water back on and within 2 hours we had ice again.

watched the youtube video from PartsSelect and was able to remove old water inlet valve easily and install new one with little effort. The hoses on my refrigerator were a bit different than shown in video, but I was able to modify them and it's working just fine now. Thank you PartsSelect !

My part had threaded fittings. The part that I received had snap fittings. Once I realized that that snap fittings worked with the bare tubing and not any special tip endings, I simply cut off the ends of my tubing that mated with the threaded fittings. I then had bare tubing that snapped into the snap fittings. Two minutes later, the part was in place and the job was done. Problem solved.

WATER INLET VALVE NOT WORKING / NO ICE

STARTED AT INSTALLING WATER INLET VALVE, BUT THE VALVE I RECIEVED DID NOT HAVE THREADED ENDS FOR WATER LINES. WAS THE REPLACEMENT PART I NEEDED, BUT WITH OUT THE THREADED ENDS. CALLED PARTSELECT ABOUT THE ISSUE, THEY DID THERE RESEARCH ABOUT THE VALVE, WAS TOLD THAT THE MANUFACTURE HAD CHANGED SOME OF THE INSTALL FEATURES, SO I AKED THEM THAT INSTRUCTIONS ETC., WOULD OF BEEN GREAT. AS I LOOKED AT THE VALVE WHERE THE WATER LINES GO, THEY ALL MATCHED IN WATER LINE SIZES THAT MATCHED MY ORIGINAL VALVE, SO I CUTTED THE WATER LINES ONE BY ONE MAKING SURE THEY GO WHERE THEY GO. THE NEW WATER VALVE REQUIRES TO CUT (FLUSH CUT) THE LINES AT IT'S CLOSEST POINT TO THE VALVE AND INSERT INTO VALVE WATER LINE HOLE (THE NEW WATER INLET VALVE, HAS A SEAL GASKET IN EACH HOLE WITH LOCKING TEETH). SO YOU MUST BE ACCURATE ON WHERE AND WHICH WATER LINE GOS WHERE, CAUSE YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO PULL THE WATER LINE OUT AGAIN WITH OUT DAMAGING THE LOCKING TEETH ETC., IN THAT ONE WATER LINE YOU JUST PUTTED IN WRONG. BASICALLY THE NEW WATER INLET VALVE IS A CUT WATER LINE FLUSH AND INSERT TO PROPER HOLE, YOU GOT TO PUSH HARD UNTIL YOU FEEL THE WATER LINE PUSHING YOUR HAND AWAY FROM YOU, WHICH TO ME INDICATED THAT YOU HAD A SOLID COMPLETE SITTING OF WATER LINE ON TO VALVE AND PULL ON THAT SAME LINE JUST A BIT TO SEE , IF IT WOULD COME OUT. WHICH IT DID NOT AND SO YOU DO ALL WATER LINES THE SAME WAY / REINSTALLED / HOOKED UP MAIN WATER COPPER LINE THE THE WATER INLET VALVE / CHECKED FOR LEAKS, NOTHING / INSTALLED ICE MAKER SIMPLE 2 SCREWS ON INSIDE OF FREEZER FOR MOUNTING ICE MAKER / UNPLUGGED ICE MAKER FROM MALE-FEMALE PLUG IN FREEZER WHERE ICE MAKER IS PLUGGED TO. INSTALLED REVERSE ORDER / ADDED 1 CUP OF WATER (BY HAND) ONTO ICE MAKER I HAD JUST INSTALLED, SO IT WOULD GO THRU ITS CYCLE , OF MAKING ICE / ICE DISPENCING ONTO TUB / AND THE WATER INLET VALVE KICKS INTO ACTION ADDING WATER. * NOTE: I DID NOT HAVE THE INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT THE NEW CHANGES TO THE WATER INLET VALVE , DO THIS ,DO THAT . THE NUMBER PROVIDED TO ME FROM CUSTOMER SERVICE ON ABOUT CONTACTING THE MANFACTURER WAS USELESS, REASON BEING. THEY JUST SAID THAT THEY JUST MANUFACTURE PARTS, THEY DON'T HOW TO. BUT LIKE I SAID, IT'S A SIMPLE CUT EVEN AND PUSH INTO HOLE, UNTIL LINE LOCKS. BETTER INSTRUCTIONS, WITH DETAILS. WOULD'VE BEEN GREAT . HOPE MY DETAILS HELP YOU ALL. : )

Had a leak every night from refrigerator couldn't understand where from. Went on line and found some articles. I was referred to this sight by ads the articles and then in how to. I was pleased that a customer wrote their own instructions on what to do it was more concise clear and made preparation easier. First label towel cup and bucket needed too. Turn off water supply and electrical cord unplug then remove cover behind refrigerator vacuum and clean then. Water makes a mess so clean dry first. Then mark your hoses to remember order. Next remove old inlet and put in bucket it's pressure clamps so push in and it locks I chose to suction pipes and check for damage to pipes pin holes etc next I inserted into new inlet in order. At that time I turned water valve on checked for leaks at initial insert and new inlet. Next I plugged in unit cord. Waited. No leaks so far left for 30 minutes ran ice machine and water dispenser waited 20 minutes no leaks yet. Unplugged refrigerator unit. Installed the inlet completely to base and closed back paper panel after wiping water. Waited 24 hours then smiled no leak. Job done so far 2 weeks all clear. Hope this helps you will need screws driver and wrench for copper or main line I did find same part for less but this sight help me with good instructions the one they provide is for engineers architects lol not me I'm DYI

This was the first time I ever installed a water inlet valve in a refrigerator. I viewed the Parts Select youtube repair video that is available online. In fact, I viewed it a couple times. Ultimately, the actual installation of the water inlet valve went exactly as shown in the youtube video. I did not experience any problems with the installation and was quite happy with the experience.

1. Turn off water in line to refrigerator. 2. disconnect hose from refrigerator. 3. Remove back cardboard panel at bottom of refrigerator. 4 Remove 2 screws holding in the valve assembly at bottom right. 5. best way I found to remove hoses (all color coded) is to cut with razor knife at the white collar. cut clean and square. 6. disconnect electrical (also color coded) 7. connect hoses to valve assembly by pushing hose firmly into hole. If you are familiar with PEX then this is the same. Reconnect electrical. Reconnect to refrigerator... 3,2,1 your done. It will take a couple cycles to get the air out of the lines.
