This should have been an extremely easy, quick job, but because I'm not that familiar with refrigerator parts, and NO INSTRUCTIONS came with the part, it took quite a while. The fittings for the water lines to icemaker and water outlet were dramatically different from the old part. The old part had screw-on fittings. The new one did not. I went first to Ace hardware-they had never seen fitting like this, and didn't know what to tell me. I drove 20 minutes to Home Depot, and the guy there told me that, rather then screwing on, or needing another part, the fittings were a quick connect, where you just shove the plastic tubing into the fitting. Finally an answer! I went home, did as he'd said, hooked it up (shoved the tubing in, used the provided electrical adapters for the contacts, and screwed the thing on. It takes a good while for the icemaker to get cold enough to start it's cycle (which I found out from an internet search), and about 6 hours later, I started getting ice. It works fine now, love the in the door water/ice on my "new" 10-12 year old $75 plus $35 for the part-huge 26.6 side by side refrigerator, but the part should have had at least an indication that the water fittings just needed to have the tubing shoved into them.
The operation is very simple on this valve. I disconnected the water lines and wires. Then two I removed the two screws attachingvalve to the ref.box.The reinstall is just the opposite from removal.
I Took the six screws off the back panel to get to underneath the refridgerator. took the 2 screws out of the bracket thast holds on the water valve took the 2 lines off and then put everything back
Used the parts diagram from PartSelect.com to locate the valve. Removed the old valve and disconnected inlet water line and the 2 outlet water lines(one for ice maker & one for water dispencer). Reconnected water lines to new valve and positioned it back in place on the refrigerator. Problem solved -no more drip, drip, drip.
Disconnected the power and then the water line. Removed the cardboard shield on back of the refrig. Then removed the faulty solenoid which was held in place by one bolt. Removed the two plastic water hoses and two sets of electrical connectors. I then reversed the process to install the new solenoid. I encountered two challenges. The new solenoid had a plastic housing that had to be removed and one set of the electrical connectors required an extension. The extensions were included with the solenoid, but there were no instructions.
Be careful when ordering the part. Make sure you need a Double or Single Outlet Water Valve. They look almost the same in the catalog. Unplug the power cord and turn off the stopcock water supply valve. Unplug the 2 electrical jacks and pull-out the water hose from the compression type fitting. Use a philips screwdriverdriver to remove the bad part. Install the new part in the reverse steps.
I unplugged the refrigerator and shut off the water. I removed the back of the frig where the inlet valve is located. I removed the old nuts and cut the plastic water line on the ends. I shoved them into the new fittings. I then turned on the water and plugged in the frig. I could hear the water pumping into the ice maker. I screwed the inlet and back of refrigerator in place.
Followed the directions on the web site and did everything that was instructed to do and had no problems with installing the new dual water Valve. Has been in now for a week and no more over filling or freezing water in the storage box. Lots of clean ice, now!
Turn off water valve to the refigerator and disconnect line.Remove the cardboard backing and insulation.Remove old valve and cut lines close to the valve.Trim plastic on new valve as needed to fit (generic valve).Insert water lines into new valve.Install new valve.Connect water line and open valve.Replace cardboard backing and insulation.
The valve was leaking from the core and not the in/out tubes. The valve is easy to get to and very easy to replace. When replacing the water in/outs you cut them off the old valve and then slip them on the new valve. 5 to 10 minute job.
I used a screwdriver to remove, then replace, the screw that holds in the valve. I used pliers to pull the refer water line out of the old valve. I just used my hands to reinstall the line. I used and open box wrench to remove and reattach the main water line. Nothing blocked access to the valve and it was very easy to remove the old one and install the new one.
Removed lower cover screws removed cover removed copper water feed tubing connector unplugged wire connectors pulled out plastic water line connector and water lines removed water valve assembly installed water lines installed wire connectors secured valve assembly reinstalled copper water line turned on water valve checked for leaks reinstalled lower rear cover
Removed cardboard cover from back of refrigerator with nutdriver. Removed old pump and reconnected water lines and electrical. reinstalled pump.It did take about 5-10 minutes for the pump to refill ice tray.
After turning the water off, I removed the two screws holding the cover on the lower back of the freezer. I disconnected the copper water supply line from the valve. I then removed the screw holding the valve in place and removed it from the freezer. I removed the two wires from the valve and placed them on the new valve (after inserting the clip inserts to match the new size tabs).I pulled the two plastic water lines out of the valve and inserted them into the new valve. I put the new valve in place and replaced the screw. Total time less than 15 minutes. Much easier to fix, than to identify the problem. The collective wisdom of the internet strikes again! Thanks to all.
