Turned of power and water to unit. Removed water lines and electrical wires to old valves, tagged wires and hoses before removing. Cut old hose and installed new hose kit. Change from two water lines to one. Remove old valves and replace with new, reinstall water and electrical wires.Turn on water to check for leaks if there are no leaks turn power back on and check for water going to ice maker.

Water and ice would not shut off!

repaced limit switch, and actuator pad fixed the problem. Limit switch was the reason for water and ice not shutting off. Seems that the spring inside switch was shot and would not retract to off position. While we were going to change this switch out, we repaced the scuffed up actuator pad also. Knowing the age and our hard water problems, we replced the double outlet water valve for preventive reasons that would arise down the road.

Double outlet water valve leaks water

shut water off to fridge. remove dust panel from bottom of fridge on back of fridge. remove screws on bracket that holds water valve. remove lines(2) that connect directly to top of water valve (keep track of which line goes to which side on top of valve). cut about 1/2 inch off of those 2 water lines. take those 2 water lines and just insert/push them into their proper location on top of new water valve. reattach bracket. replace dust panel. turn water back on to fridge and check for leaks.
