I wasn't sure just where the actual valve was located so I watched the video available where the valve part was listed. I watched the video and did exactly as described and found the repair to be quite easy. I replaced the valve and my problem was solved. Thanks to PartSelect for adding this video with this part listing.
After watching the repair video on your web site, It too about 20 minutes start to finish to change the valve. It was great to have the video first while I was waiting for the part to be delivered, I would reccomend partselect to everyone . they were great to work with, everything was as it was souposed to be, Thanks Rob Berg
I have more than 10 years old Kitchenaid Superba black refrigrator that stop making ice. Initially I saw ice in the inlet tube, so I used hair drayer to melt it and it worked for a week. After that I did not see any more ice and not more water coming into the icemaker, so I ordered a new ice maker. That did not solve the problem. I worked with my old inlet valve and tried to repair it and I messed it up. I ordered this new inlet valve and and put it in and it worked and ice is good. So I have a new Icemaker and a new inlet valve
Took 5 mins. to install. I cut the hose with a razor one at a time then pressed into place. Then removed the wires one at a time so to not get them mixed up. I saved $125 .
1) Removed the two screw holding the valve2) cut exisiting hoses off old valve3) put hoses on the new valve4) reattach valve to refridgerator
Removed screws from back panel of fridge. Removed old valve. Removed water lines. Re-assembeled. Easy repair. Great directions. (The only thing confusing was the picture when ordering which didn't say that there was a part that needed to be removed for my particular model. My old part looked the same as the picture except yours had an extra part attached.) The directions received DID say to remove the extra connector, though.
undo nuts that mount the valve system to the fridge, oh, first unplug the fridge! Cut the plastic lines close to their existing nut or connection and then carefully make a very clean square cut on plastic line. Disconnect the electrical connectors, they are size coordinated to each of the two solenoids and match up to the new ones. Re-connect the electrical connectors, plastic lines (these too are size coordinated) re-mount the valve kit and plug in. Can't get any easier.
Removed bottom panel on fridge , removed the two screws holding valve, removed electrical connections and water connections and replaced the wires and tubes and attached the valve to the fridge, replaced lthe panel and the was it in less than fifteen minutes.
Use a 1/4 inch nut driver, took out the old one and put in the new one. After I completed the repair it took a minute for the ice tray to fill up. The video you provided was right on. It made the job very simple.
Replaced part sent. Very simple. Remove old, install new. Everything was one for one the same except connections were the newer push/seal type vs. threaded. It went smooth and corrected the problem
I was out with friends who said this may be an easy problem to fix.So I purchase the Ice Maker Solenoid Water Valve My mistake was starting this job 8:00 at night.I was tired after work.After shutting the water feed and disconnecting the electric, I removed the old solenoid and I started to replace it with the new one. Once replaced, I plugged in the electric and ran down to the basement and turned on the water.Long story short and after much moping and cleaning up, I realized that it is not wise to reverse the water feed.When the water feed into the selenoid is placed in the "in" position and the tube to the ice maker is placed in the "out" position on the selenoid ...this job takes less than 15 minutes. Do it wrong and you too will be cleaning up a watery mess !
Removed the old water inlet valve assembly. Verified that the line to the icemaker was not blocked. Installed the new water inlet valve assembly with no issues, and the icemaker started working right away.
Turned water to ice make off. Removed 2 screws holding inlet valve. Removed 1 water line going in and 2 water lines going out to water dispenser and to ice maker. Reattached water lines back into quick disconnects. Fasented inlet valve back on the frame with the 2 screws and turned water back on. Easy and quick. Thanks to Parts Select for super fast delivery of parts, 24 hours turnaround. Thanks Jimmy.
Pull refrigerator from wall shut water off to ice and water dispenser unplug refrigerator remove cardboard back remove water inlet valve reverse to install new valve had to take hair drier to thaw out water tube in freezer about twenty minutes before it started making ice
