First I removed the metal panel on the back of the fridge. Then I disconnected the wiring bundle and harness and attached to new valve. I then removed the bolt that attached the assembly to the fridge. Removed the main water hose, then the 4 pickup tubes and reinserted into new unit. I added pipe tape to nipple and reattached hose. Plugged in wire bundle. Turned on water...went to home depot to buy new water line as this one leaked. Installed new line, leak checked..re-attached valve to fridge, installed metal cover. Viola--Done!
Our son found the part that was broken. He looked up the parts online and we ordered the part.The part arrived quickly and he did the repair by uninstalling the old part and reinstalling the new one.We were very happy with the service and availability of the parts from part select. ThanksWe now have the ice maker and filtered water and no more leaks.
First I shut off water supply and drained line. Then I unplugged power to refrigerator. I then removed the back lower cover from the refrigerator and removed the water supply line from the water valve. I then removed the water valve from the unit then removed the wiring harness from the assembly. Then I cut the plastic lines from the old valve assembly and inserted them in the new valve assembly, one at a time to avoid crossing lines. I reinstalled valve assembly and rear cover on the refrigerator. After turning on the water and plugging in power it took a bit for the air to work itself out of the icemaker supply line.
Very simple repair. Part was easily ID'd from great photo on web-stie. Received part in 2 days. Removed old valve assembly (one screw) and reconnected electrical plugs (4 total) and water lines (4 total). Had some difficulty removing one water line from old assm and had to cut off with box cutter. Surprised that mfgr would not design in water trap to contain potential leaks and sound an alarm. Suffered medium damage to hardwood floor.
simple - removed the cardboard cover plate at base of refrigerator back - removed existing water valve assembly - removed water lines from existing valve and plugged into new valve - same done with electrical connections - no tools needed for this part - re-attached valve bracket to refrigerator and closed her up - voila, water worked - probably spent 1/4 of that if repair guy had come out. sj
I pulled the unit out, removed the lower access panel in the back. The receiving unit of the water line (Water Valve Assembly), had water spraying out of it which appeared to be as fine as a stran of hair. Aside from the wire attachments and multiple hoses attached to it, it was really easy to remove the old one and install the new one. Although the replacement part cost approx. $92, I would suspect I saved at least $50-$100 for a service call, not to mention who knows, $50-$100 in labor as well. Words of advice: Never be afraid to take on a challenge!
Replaced hose that cracked from over heating with new hose and couplers. This refrigerator will over heat easily and has been a real pain because of it. Must keep it clean and vacuum dust by removing back cover.
Unplugged unit. Closed water valve at wall. Removed back cover. Disconnected wiring. Removed valve body and cut hoses one at a time placed them in the new part. Re- connected wiring and attached part and backing. Turned water back on and plugged in chord.
Problem was not solved by replacing water valve.Seems that if the water reservor temp in the fresh food section is too cool, it will form ice plugs in the line to the dispensor on the freezer door. Currently running both section on the 5 and 5 temperture settings.
Removed old ice maker and control valve. Control valve is in the back of the refrigerator in the bottom corner. Unplug the refridge, turn off water supply valve, remove mounting screw and unplug the control valve from the wiring harness connection. Using a flat screw driver, remove the four water lines (this is the most difficult part). Go inside the freezer and remove the ice maker by loosening the two top screws and removing the bottom screw. Unplug the electrical connection by pulling straight out or use a flat screw driver to pry off. Installation of the new parts is the reverse of the removal. The new ice maker has a pig tail that is necessary to use. This pig tail is longer than the original but will loop up behind the unit and back down to the female plug. Full ice bucket in 48 hours.
I'm so glad I didn't have to call a repair man to come in and fixed this. I probably saved myself a couple hundred bucks. Fixing this was really easy. Make sure you unplug the fridge and turn off the water first. There is only one screw on the bottom right of the fridge that secures it to the box. On my fridge I needed a socket set to remove it. Once that is removed the entire water valve can be pulled out. Unplug the wiring harness from the old valve and put it on the new one. I did the water hoses one at a time. Unplug one from the old valve and plug into the new. . I think there are 4. The main water hose you need a wrench to loosen but its the same principle. After that turn on the water and inspect it for leaks. Then reattach it to the fridge with the one screw. Hope this helps.
Disconnect power cord and turn off water suppy - removed access cover - remove assy from unit - inverted valve assy and connected water lines in new assy - re-installed valve assy - re-powered and turned on water - monitor for leaks 10-15mindone deed...
I removed the cover off the back and removed the screw that holds the bracket to the water Valve.Pulled the element out and cut the water lines and placed them in each soleniod and then removed the 4 wire harness and placed then on the new water valve and , turned on the water and checked for leaks. Put water valve bracket back in place and checked for leaks. Everything was working properly. Replaced the back cover. End of project.
Disconnect unit from electric outlet, remove the lower back panel, locate water valve at lower left corner, Mine had a noticeable leak from blue water valve assembly. Turn off water supply, remove water valve assembly from unit, remove push and pull water tubes and harnesses.Basically a plug and play fix, everything is clearly identified and color coded, just make sure the 4 wiring harnesses are kept in original position as they are transferred to new part.Turn on water supply and check for leaks.
