Ice maker inlet tube slow dripping caused freeze over

Unscrew the mounting screw and cut the tubes as close as you can to the valve. You cannot reuse the valve as the self sealing lock washers will be destroyed once you take out the tubes. Push the newly cut tubes into the new self sealing new valves and remount. Easy Peasy!

Water would not dispense

I turned the water off at wall. Then I removed 6 nuts removing the back cover. Removed one nut to remove the outlet water valve. Disconnected two bottom hoses and put them on the new unit. Removed top hose and installed on new unit.
When I removed the top hose water did spill out.
I had to rush to connect it to the new unit .

Customermichael from west bend WI

Unit would make ice, but would not dispense water

Simple repair. I first shut off the water supply to the unit. I then removed back cover from lower part of the unit. The water valve is on the lower left side. I began by removing the screw on the bracket that holds the part in place. This screws into the back of the unit. I then disconnect the water line by unscrewing the fitting. Then unplugged the two electrical connections in the back of the unit. Lastly, remove the two hoses that plug into the bottom of the the unit. The installation was essentially the reverse of the the removal. The whole process took about ten minutes.

CustomerPeter from Zionsville IN

Ice maker was overflowing.

This repair is EXTREMELY easy to conduct even for the novice. The first step was to shut off the water supply at the wall, and disconnect the power cord to the refrigerator. Remove the six panel screws to remove the lower back panel. On the lower left hand side is the water valve. This is connected by only one screw, so that was removed. Compare your new valve with the one you are removing to double check that the units are the same. Disconnect the inlet water supply line and connect it to the new unit. Disconnect the two water outlet lines from the old unit and connect to the new unit. Finally, disconnect the two power plugs from the old unit and connect to the new unit. These are all colored coded or different sizes, so there is no way to fowl this up! I just recommend disconnecting and reattaching one at a time so that you are doubly assured you are doing this correct. Reattach the valve unit back onto the side of the refrigerator. At this point, I turned on the power and water supply to check for leaks. Also, have someone run the water in the ront panel dispenser to ensure things are working properly. Once that is completed, reinstall the back panel and you are done. I did this project about two weeks ago, and things are working great now. Saved a lot of time and money by doing this job myself.

CustomerJoseph from Wise VA

Water valve had frozen & broken - unrepairable

very simple repair.....push two hoses into compression fittings on the bottom, plug two wire harnesses into the back, and put a screw into the front to attach to the refridgerator frame. After that, just turn water back on and plug it in. Ran great.

Part also came in quicker than expected......which was a definate plus.

Water leaking from water valve

Unplugged fridge, and turned off water supply. Removed cover from back of fridge, followed the plastic tube down to water valve.
I unbolted the mount holding water valve in place, removed the input tubing on top by unscrewing nut. I made a note of which outbound plastic tubing went to water dispenser, and which one went to icemaker, and which side of the water valve they plugged into, and then cut the tubing very close to the old valve.
I slid the tubing into the new water valve, and I felt it lock into place, very easy. Attached the input water line and tightened the nut.
Reattached the water valve mount to the body of the fridge, replaced cover, turned water valve back on and checked for leaks (there were none).
Plugged in fridge, tested dispenser, everything worked just fine. No leaks.

Water would not come out of front of refrig. I maker worked fine.

Removed back panel. Cut the water lines and replaced the double outlet water valve. The only issue was the long period of time until the water flowed from the outlet. Be prepared to wait, it will take some time for the water to flow.

CustomerPhilip from hubertus WI

Water constantly leaking from dispenser.

Instructions are excellent - no modifications. The problem was with determining what was causing the leak. GE, in telephone conversations, kept telling us to run several gallons of water through the system to remedy the problem, and suggesting we change the water filter (MWF). We discovered the remedy by looking through your listing of replacement water parts, till we found the commentary dealing with our problem. This is the second problem with the refrigerator solved by searching your catalogue and reviewing your demos. I'm afraid you have a customer for life (at least for the life of our GE appliances).

CustomerTeresa from Queensbury NY

Water intake to ice maker kept freezing due to slow leak in valve.

The process would have been fairly intuitive, and the part is designed in such a way that it is impossible to hook anything up to the wrong connecting point. PartSelect's on-line video of the repair was clear and easy to follow -- the perfect primer to review before I started the job. The first part I received was defective, and although it functioned it leaked water onto the floor. This gave me the opportunity to engage PartSelect's unparalleled customer service department for friendly and incredibly prompt correction. I look forward to my next appliance failure just for the pleasure of doing business with this exceptional firm.

Water dispenser in refrigerator not working, but ice maker does work

Replacing the water valve was easy - the video was excellent. However, the problem was not solved - no water even after replacing the water valve. Anyone have any other thoughts?

CustomerKevin from Alhambra CA

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, no ice

Removed the back bottom panel and removed the one screw holding the water valve on. Removed water connections and replaced with new valve. Ice was made in the first 10 min. However, drinking water was not available for 4 hours to the dispenser.
