Refrigerator wasn't "winterized" ..this is a summer home, the cold winter cracked the water valve

I put the new unit up to the old one to see exactly how it goes, took the 2 screws holding the unt off...Took the 3 water lines off with adjustable wrench, put back exactly the same way and it worked with no 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.

Not making ice

Simple, I had a repair man come over and diagnose the problem. After confirming, I ordered the part and replaced it. Need to make sure you get the ice build up out of the fitting tnat goes from the back of the fridge connection at the top and the filler tube inside the unit, mine was iced over. Repair man wanted to charge me $250.00... with his service call and buying the part, it cost $120

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.
