Very weak water pressure from dispenser, hollow ice cubes

  • Customer: Dominic from Key West FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Wrench(Adjustable)

I diagnosed the problem by checking the water flow at the supply valve and hose by disconnecting the hose from the back of the fridge. Found the pressure to be adequate. I then reconnected the supply hose and removed the cardboard backing from the fridge and removed the nuts holding the water inlet valve to the chassis. I loosened the first hose that runs from the bottom of the valve and had my wife activate the valve by pushing the water switch on the front of the fridge. Water basically sputtered out of the valve and I decided that was where the problem was. I ordered the valve from partselect. When it arrived I thought it was the wrong part because it had push-fittings whereas my original valve was all thumb screws. I took a chance and one by one used a utility knife to cut the hose free of the old valve as close to the nut as possible. Connecting them to the new valve was a piece of cake! Just make sure the hose bottoms out when you push it in. I turned the water back on, no leaks! Plugged the fridge in and pushed it back to the wall. After a bit of air bled out I had a strong flow of wateragain like new! The next day the ice cubes were solid again! We use the filtered water so many times a day and had been so frustrated with the slow water flow we had considered donating the fridge and buying a new one; thanks to this easy fix we expect keep it for years to come!

Upon receipt of replacement part I simply snapped it into place. More accurately, the "less than 15 mins" above was more like less than 15 seconds. Ordering this part was easy and clearly understood. I ordered about noon one day and received the FedEx shipment evening of the following day. Incredible! While somewhat pricey for what the part is I understand the costs associated with stocking minor parts and am totally happy with my whole shopping experience at PartSelect. I have already recommended PartSelect to others and have bookmarked the website for future reference as needed.

I followed a video I found on how to take the front off of the ice dispenser ( to me the hardest part) Once I was in there it was a matter of removing the pin and spring,then putting the new flapper in place of the old. Hardest part in reassembling was getting the spring back where it belongs. After that it was a matter of putting the ice dispenser back together and testing. Works perfectly.

I watched a "how to repair" video on PartSelect. Everything went just as described until I realized that the actuator I was replacing had two tiny lights with wires attached. Perhaps I ordered the wrong part but it looked like the part I ordered would still fit but just not have the lights. I really didn't think it was necessary to have lights so I used scissors and clipped the wires so I could remove the old actuator. Then I continued to follow the directions in the video and now I have a perfectly functioning water dispenser. My husband was so proud of me! One additional tip- I found it was helpful to use a flashlight so I could see really well.

Pulled fridge away from wall and unplugged. Turned off main water supply feed and removed fitting from water inlet valve. Took off back panel by removing 3 screws. Took out 2 screws holding valve to fridge. Pulled off color coded wire clips. Unscrewed each water tube connector. New valve had quick connectors so had to snip off flared ends of tubing with utility knife. Pushed tubing firmly into new valve fittings and pulled to ensure connection. Reattached wiring and reattached valve to fridge with the 2 screws. Reconnected water feed line and turned on main water feed. Checked for leaks before replacing back panel. Done. No more dripping from water dispenser.
