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. A really easy repair.
Replaced the old part with the new one and we're back in business again plenty of ice.
Replaced outlet water valve, the job went quite well no problems. The best thing about this repair was able to order the part on line, and have it shiped to my front door,
First installed the double outlet water valve, did not fix the problem, I then put ice ice maker assembly and we had ice.
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.
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.
