CustomerWALTER from WHISTLER AL

Would not make ice

I HAVE A WATER FITER SYTEM THE ICE MAKER IS SUPPIED FROM. I HAD TO DRAIN SYSTEM TO RELEASE PRESSURE. I THEN REMOVED THE 2 SCREWS SUPPORTING THE VALVE. REMOVED VALVE AS FAR AS WIRES AND SUPPLY LINES WOULD ALLOW AND DISCONNECTED. REPLACED ON NEW VALVE AND REINSTALLED. THIS TURNED OUT NOT TO BE THE ONLY PROBLEM, ICE HAD FORMED DEEP INTO THE SUPPLY TUBE. HAD TO TAKE A HAIR DRIER AND DEFROST THE TUBE UNTIL I COULD BLOW THRU IT. IT IS NOW MAKING ICE.

No water through door

I replaced the fill valve by first unplugging the referigerator turning offf the water supply before removing the cover to gain access to the water valve. I removed to bracket from the old fill vale and installed on new valve. Reversed the above and it fixed the problem. I ordered the part from PartSelect for this twenty five year old referigerator and received it the next day. Fastest service ever! Right part too!

Water dispenser would not shut off.

DISCONNECT THE POWER CORD!! I removed the back panel. Then removed the two screws holding the water inlet valve bracket. I then pulled the valve out enough to disconnect the two electrical connectors and the three water lines. Next, removed and replaced the valve onto the bracket. (Keep track of the little keeper spring) Reinstall in reverse order. (Use teflon tape on the water connections) Test and check for leaks before you replace the back panel. Cleaning the dirt out from under the unit would be a good idea while you have the back panel off.

CustomerDavid from Pikesville MD

Ice maker did not fill with water and water dispenser ran constantly.

It took me longer to move the refrigerator, vacuum the dust from the floor and rear and remove the back panel than to replace the part. Two screws held the part in place, two plugs and two hoses connected the part. All said and done in 35 minutes I have a refrigerator with a working icemaker and water in the door dispenser. Why did I ever delay so maney months in ordering this part to complete an easy repair job?

CustomerJim from Gainesville TX

Icemaker supply solenoid did not shut off water flow completely.

After turning off the internal freezer and refrigerator control knobs, I disconnected the power cord. I then removed the lower back cover, the two hex screws holding the inlet valve bracket to the refrigerator frame, disconnected the incoming water line and the two plastic plastic water lines (going to the drinking water spigot and ice maker).
I next marked the two quick-disconnect wiring plugs (for reference on re-assembly). The whole unit came out very easy. I then installed the old mounting bracket on the new water inlet valve, and did reverse installation. Piece of cake.
