This part fixes the following symptoms:
The water inlet valve is a solenoid-operated switch that, when activated, releases water from the supply line to the water valve and into the compact icemaker mold.
Original parts froze when the fridge was stored in the garage, so when we brought it in and hooked up the water supply we discovered the cracks.I used a wrench to remove the back lower cover of the fridge. attached to that cover were both the parts I needed to replace. I removed one nut each per part so they were free of the back cover. Once free I unhooked the two electrical plugs per part and reattached the new part so as not to confuse the positions of the wiring. Then I did the same thing with the two hoses attached to each part, swapping old part for new. Once connected, I reattached the new parts to the back cover and replaced the back cover to the fridge. Connected the water line and tried the ice maker and water source on the door. I didn't realize it, but the filter, located in the refrigerator side of the unit had also frozen and cracked, so I had water now pouring from the fridge! Replaced that filter, cleaned up the water and everything is working great!800 number customer service person Kim originally helped me locate the correct parts via schematic diagram, as no part numbers were visible on my broken parts. She was incredibly helpful and got the correct parts on her first guess ( she told me it was a guess but she was right on the money).

It was really pretty simple. You get to the back of the frig, open a panel and the valve is right there. The instructions where clear on what to do, even though the new valve was different water line connections. It was spelled out what to do. Works great and all the parts supply places would have to ordered it anyway, so I saved $ and got the valve in 30 hours to boot. Thanks
First I removed the existing copper ice maker line and then installed a plastic line. I then tried the appliance, with no change. I then removed and replace the primary water valve and then tested that as well. There was no change in the outcome. So I removed and replaced the secondary water valve and tested that as well and I noticed a significant change in water pressure, and in volume.
remove the back plate, removed the screw holding the valve, removed electrical wires and water tubing. installed new valve. very simple. also i received the valve in one day. thank you
Removed rear panel of refrigerator and disconnecterct water valve after shutting the water off and unplugging the electricity. Replacement valve waterconnections were different than the original which required modifications and problematic water leaks. I would have preferred an exact replacement part which was a better design to prevent water leaks and would have installed with no modifications
Removed electric supply, removed old filter and cut back ends of tubing one inch with sharp razor knife. Simply push in the tubing to the new valve until seats and your done. Reintall valv to plate and good to go. Instructions that came with part were great and saved 15 bucks with parts select...
After locating broken valve ordered part online.Replacment was very straight forward and directions were easy to follow. At first I was concerned about slip in fittings insted of threaded compression fittings, but they went in easy and sealed properly.Fridge was pulled out, valve replaced, water flow tested and fridge pushed back in within 30 minutes.
The location of all the ports were all in the wrong place. The mounting bracket configuration was also a problem due to the short leads from the primary valve. After installing the valve there was no flow to the water dispenser. Supply line was kinked at the valve. Reinstalled the spring in the tube, works OK. The original problem was not fixed by changeing this valve. Ordered new ice maker.
Removed and replaced in reverse order
Changed icemaker, no help. Water pressure perfect from fauset to frig. Waterfilter was replaced new. No help. Trouble shot to secondary inlet water valve which was not sending enough water to icemaker. New part had a minor modification, yet easy. No need for ice trays :))
