Followed the instructions from your site and they were perfect. Unfortunatly that wasn't the problem. It still doesn't work.
I was unplug the electrical,closed the water line.replaced old water outlet with the new one;and there work fine.Thanks
PartSelect helped me identify the part, got it in only a few days and I followed the easy to follow video featuring Steve. Awesome!
Followed instructions others posted. No need to cut any water lines, just push the white collar on the new valve, pull out line and do the same to install lines. Only issue was inlet line leaked after initial installation. It was leaking above the connection, so teflon tape wasn't the answer. Answer was to hold the line in exactly the routing place it was before removing. It took a few days for ice machine to return to normal (as in making ice in quantity), but works like a champ now.
It was very simple. Pull the fridge back (unplug and turn off water), remove the cardboard backing and disconnect/unhook the current water valve and reverse the process to connect the new.
After confirming that a frozen water line was not my issue, I confidently bought this item and installed it within minutes after receiving it! It is easy to install - just close the connection to your refrigerator, open the rear lower panel, disconnect the water tubings and electrical connectors. Reverse that - you have the installation. Plug the refrigerator back on, turn the water back on for the refrigerator - and observe for any leaks. If no leaks - try dispensing water. Working great for me! My refrigerator's model is a GE, model # zfsb26dnass.
Just put on, part was great. Will buy parts again from this company.
turn water off to ice maker,unplugged refrigerator, took back panel off took old part off and put new part on
1)turn off water supply to appliance 2)disconnect appliance from power supply. 3)remove grill. 4)remove valve retaining fastener. 5)disconnect two wiring devices. 6) depress retaining devise at each water line to disconnect. note: if the lines do not releace, use utility knife to cut lines as close to unit as possible. 7)attach new valve in reverse order.
Unplugged fridge, shut off water supply. Removed bottom back panel of the fridge and carefully vacuumed up all the dust. Located the water valve to the left of the compressor. It is attached to the side of the fridge by a metal bracket. Remove the screw from bracket and lift up on the whole assembly. Now I removed the electrical connectors and pushed in on the quick release tabs to pull out water lines. When installing water lines to new valve be sure to push them all the way in. The water lines are marked so you will know how far they must go in. Attached electrical connectors and remounted whole assembly back to the side of the refrigerator. Turned on water supply and plugged fridge back in. Checked water dispenser for proper operation and also checked water valve for leaks. Reattached the back cover to the fridge and that was it.
I shut the water supply and took off the rear panel. One screw released the valve. Pulled off water lines(3) and electrical connectors and installed all on new valve. Screwed the valve and the panel back and turned on the water supply. Prior instructions on website helped. Part came in two days. This part should have never failed. Looks like the housing is two parts glued together. Glue failed after 7 years. G.E. should cover this. My warranty expired after 5 years. M.K. Boca Raton,Fl.
Shut off water supply and unplugges refrigerator. Took of bottom panel on back of refrigerator. Discontected power plug and water lines from old water valve, removed water valve. Put in new water valve and reconnected water lines and power plug. Plugged refrigerator back in, turned on water supply and checked for leaks. Put cover back on. (It's also a good opportunity to clean out the dust and dirt under the fridge and around the motor and condensor)
1. Turned off water near hot water tank 2. Removed back (small section) of the refrigerator, only 7-8 screws. 3. Disconnected the old water hose (comes out easily. 4. Reconnected new water valve 5. Turned on water @ hot water tank 6. Replaced back of refrigerator. All done! I have never done anything like this, and I had no instructions, very easy to figure out. The part cost $48 here.
Easy repair. Diagnosis was tricky - this website and popular mechanics article helped me to narrow down the problem to the solenoid water valve. Unscrewed the left side of the back panel and unscrewed old water valve from its bracket. The steel inlet hose was easy to disconnect, as were the two electrical socket connectors. The two outlet water hoses to the refrigerator were a little trickier. You need to cut them with a blade, and insert them into the new valve, which has teeth to hold them in place. Once I figured that out, the rest was easy. I remounted the bracket, and then tested the water flow successfully. Great website, thanks for the help!
