Question:

Was having problems with a faulty water valve so I replaced it but now it seems to dispense water every half hour or so without anyone hitting the dispenser. I know if water is leaking out of the icemaker assembly that usually means a faulty water valve but how about out of the water dispenser itself?

Question:

Icemaker assembly is leaking out water. Is that from the icemaker or the water valve not shutting?

Malaya
Answer:

Hi Malaya, it does sound like the valve is not shutting off fast enough. We recommend first checking the gear on the icemaker. If it is good then the valve is the problem. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

No water to ice maker

Original unit had screw on lugs. After removing old unit, I unscrewed the lugs, cut the lines to remove the nuts and inserted them into the new unit. Everything was color coded so connection was simple. Reinstalled unit, cycled the ice maker several times only to discover the fill tube at in the freezer had frozen ice blocking the tray from getting water. Used a hair dryer to thaw out the tube, water flowed instantly. Very easy repair.

No water to ice maker

Repair was easy. Unplug refrigerator, turn off water to ice maker, remove back panel, disconnect water inlet valve, disconnect water supplies and electrical connections. Cut ends off tubing to modify to new part connections, connect tubing, connect electrical supplies, reinstall back panel, plug refrigerator in, turn water supply back on. We made sure that there was no ice build up in the supply tube into the ice maker and made sure that everything worked correctly before putting it all back together. It was an easy repair.

Water valve was leaking

The u tube instructions were exactly what is needed. I had to cut off the old plastic pipes. My pipe had threaded connectors. Pex push on connection is super easy. You don't really need a block of wood to cut it if you have a sharp utility blade. If if you are sure this is the problem this is a really easy fix. Steps 1 turn off water at wall unplug electric also 2. Disc line at valve on refrigerator 3. Remove 2 screws holding valve 4. Pull valve out and remove plastic hoses and electric connections pay attention to color of pipe and electric connection. Mine were color coded. Had to cut off thread connectors. Reattach in reverse order or do one at a time. Check for leaks.

Water valve leaking/actuator broken

I essentially followed the tips from all of the others that did these repairs and took the best from each. For the actuator, it helped to remove the frame of the dispensor from the circuit board that had the ribbon cable attached to it. This way, I could let it dangle loose without the weight of the frame while I replaced the actuator. I did not have the option of a helper to hold the unit while I worked on it. Also, one of the tips about feeding the water line up thru the bottom of the freezer door for slack was very good. I did not need to remove the water line from the dispensing spout which some readers found it difficult to replace if removed. Instead of chewing gum, I had a telescoping magnetic pick up tool that I used to hold the screws and the bracket in place while I fastened the new actuator....but in a pinch, chewing gum will work also. Lastly, the tip about breaking the little positioning hub on the left side of the actuator mouning area was good. If you do not use a needle nose to break this little bump it becomes very difficult to maneuver the new piece into position without breaking the new one.

For the water valve, it was just remove the old. Disconnect the water lines (of course with the water shut off and the refrig unplugged), remove the electrical connnectors and install the new one reversing the removal steps. The water connections are the newer slip on type, so you just need to follow the directions that came with the part and cut off the compression fitting ends of the tube and slip them in.

PartSelect .com is great and their website with the hints and tips is fantastic.

Broken valve, water puddle on the floor

removal of the old valve to identify the problem took the most time. Once the new valve came it it was easy. NOTE: the old one had threaded connectors, and the new one is press/fit so the ends of the tubing need to be cut. The color coding and size matching are great.
