Shut off power and water. Removed cardboard cover with nut driver. Removed old solenoids with ajustable wrench and nut driver. Water inlet fitting could not be tightened because fitting did not allow for lenght of copper tubing beyond ferrel (maybe that's not what it's called). Cut 1/8 inch off tubing and then everything then went together easily. Tested and eveything was good on first try. Replaced cardboard cover with the nut driver.
Turn off water supply. Take old one off. Compare the new part with the old. All looked about the same. Be very sure the water supply line is in the proper receptor or water will flow from the ice maker inside the freezer. Reattach all lines and circuit quick connects. Reattach valve housing to refridgerator rear frame. Place ice maker switch arm to the off position. Turn on water supply. Watch closly the areas that have compression fittings. Leaks will appear quickly if water lines are installed poorly. If no leaks detected then try water dispenser and turn the ice maker back on. I only had trouble with the compression fittings. However I always do. It took several trys to stops the micro leaks at the connections.
first diagnosed problem with jumper wire. saw it wasn't drawing water. ordered replacement valve. installed valve, but still didn't work. replaced filter to increase flow. water was flowing out of dispenser. checked temp, which was fine. removed ice maker and found inlet was clogged with ice. defrosted, cleaned everything out, and now it works fine.
He pulled refrigerator out took the back protector off at the bottom took the old valve out and the new one in.
Received the parts the next day after ordering. Installed water valve and ice maker replacement within minutes and had water flowing immediately and the ice cubes followed in hours after freezing. Thank you so much for allowing us to keep our KitchenAid refrigerator hopefully for a few more years.
minor wiring to hook up and 3 water lines
part received, part in, DONE! good!
first i removed card board back panelthen i removed unit (two screws)then i removed water linesthen i installed new unit by reversing the processit was very easy and from a previous experiance having the same repair done on another ice maker i saved about $150.00 doing it myself
Turned off water supply and refrigerator power. Valve is on top of refrigerator, so easily accessible. Loosened screw holding copper water inlet line, unscrewed brass nut holding line to old valve, loosened plastic nuts to remove two outlet lines from valve (cold water and icemaker) . Removed old valve and essentially repeated above steps in reverse order with new valve. No hitch. Piece of cake. Back in business in about 15 minutes. System works fine so far, but will need to wait another week or so to be sure original problem was indeed solved by replacing dual inlet valve.
remove 2 screws 3 lines put them back on. Done. great part, price and easy repair.
First I shut off the water supply thenI removed the 2 screws on the bracket that holds the element. Then disconnected the copper water tube and the two water hoses. Then replaced the element with the new one. Praying this was this problem. Turned on the water and checked for leaks. No leaks!Checked the water dispenser and it worked,then the ice dispenser and it worked also. Very easy repair and we saved a lot of money doing it my self. Also by buy the part through part select we saved $30.00.
removed the panel on lower back of fridge - then removed the inlet water hose from valve - removed the two screws holding the valve in place - unplugged two electrical connection and reversed the process to install - it was a breeze & the part was right the first time it was shipped !
The ice maker was over filling, then freezing and the ice maker couldn't eject the ice because the entire mechanism was frozen. The only way I could get the ice to eject is to hit the ice maker with a hair drier to loosen things up.I wasn't sure where the problem was, so I purchased a new ice maker and a new valve. I watched the 60 second video provided by this site an the work to replace both parts took 20 minutes. Great instructions. Ice is no longer overfilling and is ejecting smoothly. I have a small drip coming from the water disenser on the door, but that may be due to air in the line. As long as I had it pulled out, I also replaced the water filter.
Shut off water supply to refrigerator at wall. Disconnected water supply line to fridge. Removed three self tapping screws holding cardboard cover to dual inlet valve. Folded cardboard out of way, but did not damage it. Removed two screws holding inlet valve in place. Pulled inlet valve out from refrigerator. Lots of dust. Vacuumed out some of it. Removed both electrical connectors (one for water to dispenser, the other for water to ice maker). It is impossible to mix these up since the connectors are sized differently (thank God). Unscrewed both water lines from the defective inlet valve (easily done since they were hand tight) and screwed them on the new valve (finger tight only). Reconnected both electrical lines. Bolted new inlet valve in place with two screws. Attached water line from wall to valve and turned on water supply. Checked for leaks. Operated now working water dispenser and flushed gallons of water to clear the lines and tank behind crisper. Checked again for leaks at inlet valve. Found none. Replace cardboard cover and screwed back in place with three screws.
