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.

My valve is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced. If I order this part, do I need any extra attachments or are there additional parts I should order, or is this it?

Water leaking from under fridge

This is an easy repair. Unplug appliance. Remove the old water valve by unscrewing it from the frame of the refrigerator. Disconnect the cables and all the water hoses. The hose fittings are a different type: clip off the old connectors from the hose ends and push the hoses straight into the new connectors till they fit solidly. Reconnect the cables and screw the valve back onto the frame of the refrigerator.
Unfortunately, my leak was from a hose, not the valve, so this didn't actually fix it.

Water was leaking from the valve/pump for the icemaker

Remove the screws that hold the old valve to the side of the refrigerator. Next, detach each plastic tube and attach that tube to the same place on the new valve, and repeat (there are many valves). Afterward, I realized that many of the plastic tubes had become brittle and had mineral deposits, so I bought additional tubing for ice makers and replaced each tube, one at a time.
