Ice maker not making ice

My GE SideBySide fridge stopped making ice. The green LED light on the icemaker was not blinking. The water dispenser worked fine. Fridge is only 5 years old. Freezer temp set at 7 degrees...fridge at 37 degrees. I have been using these temps since new. GE hotline suggested freezer temp should be at zero degrees. That did not work. Second call suggested an airflow issue within the freezer...there should be 1 inch space between food and back wall. Still no ice. The water valve looks to be the issue. I ordered it and got it in 2 days. Valve is in the back bottom, refridgerator side. Push the white collars around the water hoses...Then pull the hoses out. An adjustable wrench removes the nut for the inlet hose. Disconnect 2 electrical plugs. Be sure to push the water hoses fully into the new valve. I pulled the white collars out a bit to insure a tight fit. I was surprised at how simple this was to install. As it turns out, I was still getting no ice. I ordered a new ice maker and now I'm getting ice. The icemaker was EVEN EASIER to install.

No water at the dispencer

First time the water hose in the door was frozen. Thawed hose and started water flow. About 2 week later water stopped once again. Did a little trouble shooting and determined the valve stopped working. Ordered a unit, installed in a very shor time and all is good so far.

My icemaker was leaking water into ice bucket .

I thought it must be the water valve leaking by so I ordered one and put it on myself which was a very easy job. It fixed my problem and everything works fine now. First I unplugged the refrigerator shut off water line block shutoff valve. Then I removed the back plate on refiigerator. Then I removed the water line from the water valve. After that I unplugged the two wiring harnesses. Then I removed the two plastic water lines from water valve. then I inbolted the water valve from refrigerator. Then I got new valve, plugged both water lines into it, plugged both wiring harnesses back into it, hooked main water line back up then turned water back on.

Water was leaking from the cracked plastic valve

1 unplug fridge
2 turn off supply line for ice maker
2 remove lower back panel of fridge
3 disconnect in and out line from valve
4 remove valve (one screw.)
5 disconnect power line to valve.
reverse to reinstall. Very easy.

This valve is a cheap, poor design. This is the second one in 5 years. I replaced the first one because the line in the freezer would "drip" creating an ice dam so the ice maker wouldn't work. This time, the water dispenser on the front of the fridge has been dripping for months - finally the valve just dissolved and was spraying water all over the floor. It ran down into the basement. Keep a eye out if you have a GE fridge.

Opend freezer door and found ice everywhere from dripping ice maker. Even with power unplugged water was still leaking through so I determined it must be the water valve at the back of the fridge that had failed.

Unplugged fridge. Shut off the water supply valve under sink. Removed lower access panel at back of the refrigerator (six screws). Removed single green screw holding water valve bracket and pulled assembly out to access wiring and hoses. It is a dual valve as one valve is for the water dispenser and one is for the ice maker. Disconnected the 2 electrical connectors (one for each valve). Unscrewed the compression fitting for the water inlet with 1/2 " wrench. Then the two water lines on the outlet which are quick disconnects. You must push the ring towards the valve and then the tubing can be pulled out by hand.

Reattach everything to the new valve and install and its ready to use.

Water dispenser would not stop leaking on the unit.

First, turn off main water valve. Then, at the rear of refrigerator remove the rear panel exposing the water valve assembly. Cautiously, proceed by disconnecting the water hose and electrical connections. To complete the task, just worked in the reverse steps to exchange the faulty equipment.

Water running out of ice cube maker

After turning the water off, I removed the silver covering located on the left side bottom. The valve was connected to the frame on the left side. I removed the defective valve and replaced it with the new one. Everything was color coded and the hoses were different sizes, making it impossible to screw up. It was over so fast I thought I made a mistake.

The valve had developed many leaks

Had the wife shut the water off, while I was on vacation. Came home pulled the refrigerator out. Had an issue earlier in the year with a leaking hose. Discovered the valve had many pin holes and was going to need to be replaced. Went on line to Partselect ordered on Saturday. It was easy to determine if I had the right part. Purchased and received on the following Tuesday. 30 minuted later the refrigerator was back up and running with ice and cold water. Have used Partselect before always a great experience

Ice maker not providing water upon demand

We bypassed the water valve and went directly to the motor and the water valve didn't affect the outcome, therefore the part wasn't necessary, we didn't open the new part. We will check out the ice maker itself to see what the problem, to order the correct part. Sorry.

No water

I found that the valve was not the problem. Check to make sure you do not have a frozen water line as I did.

Water valve leaked

Diagnosis: I removed the nuts holding on the panel at the back of the refrigerator and saw water leaking from the water valve.

Repair: I guided my 10 year old daughter through the actual replacement.

Using a nut driver, unscrew the single nut holding the value to the frame of the refigerator.

Push up the rings around each water tube to release the tubes from the value. Using a wrench, unscrew the supply line.

Put dab of plumbers teflon on the threads.

Reverse all the above:
Screw in supply line, tighten with wrench.
Push water lines for icemaker and chilled water into value assembly.
Position valve and screw in het nut that attaches it to the frame.
Replace rear cover plate and screw in the hex nuts.
