The ice maker just stopped making ice

Kenmore Refrigerator

Turned off the water in the house because no dedicated valve to the refrigerator. Turned on the kitchen sink water to bleed off the water pressure.

Pulled refrigerator from wall and vacuumed up all the dust bunnies and cherrios for a clean work area.

Unplugged refrigerator.

Removed 4 screws that held on the rear cardboard panel.

Used 1/2" box end wrench to remove the water supply line form the valve and drained excess water into a bucket. Removed 2 more standard head screws from valve mounting bracket and pulled the valve unit out.

Detached the ice maker and water dispenser feed lines.

Labeled the 2 electric terminals (one purple and one green) and then disconnected them from the valve.

Installed new valve- had to cut a little piece off of water dispenser line from the valve because the new valve mounted without a nut on the end of it. (after market valve initially sent to me was incorrect due to web site error - but later got the correct one)

The after market valve has a different color on the solenoids (like an electric gate that allows water to go through on command). Despite the different color, the electric harness will only match up one way because the terminals are larger on one side.

The installation was fast and easy, however my icemaker is still not working.

I am guessing there is something wrong with the electrical somewhere else but replacing the valve probably fixes this problem most of the time

No water coming in to the water dispenser or the ice maker

Went online to the Part Select to look for the possible parts that could affect the water delivery. Noticed there were 2 parts that could possibly affect the delivery. Purchased both the parts. Shipped promptly and received in no time. First changed the water valve and checked water was flowing easily to both the places. Did not have to replace the Dual Inlet Water Valve. Called customer service to return the valve. The retrun went smoothly and monet credited to my charge account. Not my first time dealing with this company and will certainly recommend to every one I know.

No water for ice maker and for water spout

Pull out the unit from the wall, Unplugged the frig, removed the lower cover panel. Remove 2 screws holding the water valve from the unit, then removed the 2 connectors that turn on the relays. Connected the connectors to the new valve, then replaced inside of unit and replaced the lower back panel cover, plugged it back in, then tested the water flow at the spout, and waitied for the ice maker to kick in. Worked perfectly.

Ice maker froze up / water dripping from door

Turned off water and unplugged refrigerator. Removed rear cardboard pannel. Removed screw holding valve, unscrewed water lines, disconnected wires. Drained excess water into cup. Reinstalled lines on new valve. Reconnected wires. Installed into place. Reinstalled cover. Done. Wasn't sure if this was the problem but narrowed it down to a few things. Valve wasn't closing all of the way allowing water to continue to drip into ice maker and out door. Works perfectly. Oreder on Sunday received by Tuesday. No complaints for PartsSelect.

Had water constantly leaking to ice maker and freezing up also water constantly dripping at water dispenser

I started by shutting off water supply and unplugged refrigerator. Then using a nutdriver removed back lower panel exposing the dual inlet water valve on the left side which was held in place with one bolt. After unbolting the valve you can pull the entire assembly out enough to remove the three water connections. The instructions suggest cutting of about 1/2" off of the two discharge lines to provide a better connection to the new valve. The entire process was very simple. The price of the part was a small fraction of the new refrigerator my wife was threatening to buy if I did not get her ice maker working again. Thanks for another great repair experience!
