Water leaking from door dispenser

The repair was easy except for the location of the part itself (under the refrigerator). Once I was able to elevate the unit to allow for clearance of the part , the replacement was easy.

No ice was being made

The actual repair was very easy, what was the difficult part was to get to the valve!! It is on the bottom front but the size of the valve is larger than the opening so we used PVC pipe to create a fulcrum so that we could pick up the front of the frig about 1/4" to remove the valve. We then did the exchange, tube by tube, and again picked up the front of the frig to replace. Thank goodness we didn't need more than that as it is a built in refrigerator! It would have never been done!!

Ice maker woud not make ice

fist turned off water supply. then removed bottom kick plate. unscrewed old valve, unscrewed each water line. removed old valve. put in new valve and repeated putting back each water line than the kick plate. depending on the height of your refrigerator you may have to crank up the leveler bolts to give you more room.
