No water for ice-maker or cold water

Unplugged refrig and shut off water supply. Removed cardboard backing on back of refrig. Then removed water lines and power plug from old water valve. Removed screws holding water valve on refrig chassis. Attached water lines and power plug to new water valve. Then repeated the above steps in reverse order. Took a max of 30 mins to install the water valve and worked properly when plugged in refrig and turned water supply on.

No water from dispenser in front or fill the icemaker

Since we will be working with water and do have an electrical connection nearby, it will be best to unplug the refrigerator to do this repair. It should only take about 15-20 minutes to complete the repair so your contents in the refrigerator should be fine.

1-SImply pull your referigerator away from the wall and unplug it.

2-Locate water supply valve and turn off water to refrigerator by closing the water valve.

3-Remove two 1/4" screws that hold the black "cardboard" cover at the bottom right corner of refrigerator.

4-Then locate the two 1/4" screws holding a light blue valve assembly, again in the bottom right corner of refrigerator. Remove screws and assembly will be loose.

5- Remove water line from the top of the valve assembly you just loosened.

6-Then unscrew the large plastic nut on bottom of valve assembly.

7-Unplug the electrical connector that is on the top of the valve assembly.

8-Install the new valve by reversing the installation. Plug in electrical connector, tighten water line on bottom of assembly, re-attach/tighten main water line on top of assembly- and re-attach valve assembly to refrigerator and re-install cardboard cover. Turn on water supply to refrigerator and check for leaks. Don't forget to plug the refrigerator back in.

Thats it! Problem solved!

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.

CustomerJeffrey from Simpsonville, SC

Ice maker would not fill with water

Both water valves on this model have small rubber seals in them. When the seals wear, they stick and do not open, preventing water flow. To replace;
- unplug
- remove back bottom cover
- unplug valve
- remove valve
- detach water inlet and outlet (put a towel under first)
- install new valve in opposite order

CustomerClaude M. from Kerrville, TX

Water leak at valve, no ice, no water thnbrough the door

The repair would have been very easy, however, the replacement valve had a change to the outlet size from 5/16" to 1/4". I had to build a reducer coupling (brass). I have been searching for a quick connect poly reducing union that is leak free. I had to order one as it is not a standard item at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. As we stand now, I have ice cubes and cold water through the door. Found a crack in the 5/16" original line at the connection. Cut that section away and put the coupling in. Had to really tighten up on the brass fitting to stop any minor leaks. It has been leak free for 4 days, but I will still put the quick connect part in when it arrives. BTW Parts Select does not stock the quick connect reducing union.
