Easiest repair ever....disconnected the old one, reconnected the new one. Easy.
Turned off water supply. Pulled refrigerator from wall. Removed grill covering condenser area. Removed screw holding water valve and pulled out valve. Unpluged electrical contections. Cut water supply lines one at a time and reattached to new valve. Reconnected electrical contacts, positioned water lines and inserted valve back into position. Attached valve with screw. Turned on water and checked for leaks. Replaced grill. Pushed refrigerator back into position.
Removed the back panel and removed the water valve with one screw.Replaced the water valves and bracket. replaced back panel and turned the water back on.
I first pulled the electrical plug. Then shut off the water supply, I unscrewed the screws holding the cardboard backing on the refrigerator, this exposed the water valve. The plug in water lines came out easily and inserted easily into the new valve. Turned the water on to check for leaks, none. I then plugged in the unit and after a few cycles I had ice. $53 dollars and some change and we are back in business. Thanks to you guys, it went smooth and the parts came quickly.
Unplugged fridge. Removed the screws holding the rear cover plate to the back of the fridge. Removed cover plate. Removed waterline in from assembly. Removed screw securing assembly to fridge. Pushed in the retainers holding the water line and removed the four waterlines. Inserted the waterlines in to the new assembly. And tthen reveresed the process to reinstall the new assembly. I have used PartSelect to replace several items on my fridge. I only wish the fridge was as reliable as PartSelect is, so I didn't have to use them as often.
Removed the valve, ordered a new one from you and installed the new part.
1. I shut off the water source valve.2. Take off the four tubes. Disconnect four electrical wire connectors. Separate the inlet copper tube from the assembly. Then the old assembly can be isolated out.3. Reverse the procedure to install the new assembly.4. Turn on the water source valve5. My problem is every function seems worrking except there is no water flowing out. I am thinking it could be caused by the clogging of tube inside the refrigerator. I can hear the pump working and try to pump the water, but there is just no water out. 6. Please help if anyone experiences the same situation. Thank you!
Valve wasn't closing completely, replaced ALL valves I'm already in there). Got a pair of valves as spares too. Motherboard went AWOL...as a computer engineer it was a simple diagnosis....replace ..the broken Auger?....that was user error...Housekeeper put an ice pack in the ice drawer...you can just imagine the consequences. How easy was it?.....SO easy little hint....don't bother to wrestle the hoses off the valves...just cut them flush with the valve body....there's plenty of hose to spare. If you're a younger person you can do it in 15 mins
