Leaking water fill lines for ice maker and cold water

Plastic lines were cracked open right at valve and leaking water onto floor. Bad design on GE's part, plastic lines where heat was produced by compressor.

Turned off water supply.

Removed cardboard panel at rear bottom of refrigerator.

Unscrewed copper fill tube clamp.

Took copper fill tube off of valve using 1/2 inch (I think) open end wrench. This used compression fitting.

Removed solenoid by unscrewing one hex-head screws.

Pulled off two electrical connectors.

Trimmed ends of plastic tubes (they were hardened by heat, and will likely leak again.)

Pushed tubed into new solenoid valves (original connection was via some plastic nut and fitting.)

Reattached electrical connectors, using lug adapters (included in package) on one to make up for slightly narrower terminal on new valve.

Reattached copper fill line to valve using original compression fitting. **Had to bend line to make it fit between new lower valve inlet and screw clamp on refrigerator housing.** That was only slightly tricky part of job.

Reattached valve to refrigerator and replaced cardboard panel.

Turned water on and everything worked, and no leaks.

Will likely need to do this again when old stiff lines crack again.

No water in door-no ice & ice in door not working

To solve problem of no ice or water in the door I replaced the inlet valve. This was very easy, took less than 30 minutes. 2nd problem was that the auger mechanism was worn and when it was producing ice, would not deliver thge ice to the door. I bought replacement auger kit. Replacement was pretty involved as you had to tear the unit totally down, even removing ice crusher blades as they also install on the auger shaft. All those blades go in a certain order and have spacers that have to go back as well. I struggled with it for over an hour before getting it back together. My advice, use your digital camera and photograph each step of the teardown so you have a guide for reassembly because you end up with a lot of pieces. I finally got it back together, I am now getting nice perfect ice cubes, I have full flow of water in the door, where it had become a needle thin stream, and I have ice in the door and it all works smoothly and I am totally happy with it and my wife thinks I am a hero!

Minute water leak from crack in plastic valve body.

Repair work was straight forward except for the change in fittings. The copper water supply line was originally connected to the valve by a flared fitting but the new valve required a ferrule type connection. It was necessary to cut the tubing and to obtain a new nut and ferrule. Likewise the plastic water lines feeding the ice maker and chilled water supply had to be cut so that they could be connected to the "shark bite" type fitting.......no plastic nuts required.

Now enjoying my Jack Daniels with perfect ice. Thanks a million. Bob Valdepena

CustomerMichael from Agoura Hills CA

Leaking ice maker

Disconnected the power, removed the unit by removing 1 screw. Disconnected both water hoses and 2 electric connectors. Wasted alot of time trying to follow the directions that came with the valve. DO NOT try to use the old bracket as the instructions state. It does not work. Just use the valve as it arrives. I liked the easy snap in water tube connectors. Saves time. The electric was a snap. Just install the adapters (lugs) that come with the kit and push them on. Then, just bolt the unit back in and that's it. I did also have a problem with the unit making a screeching noise when it dispensed water. I asked Parts Select for a remedy and they suggested I replace the water filter. That solved the noise problem and now it's like new again. Way to go Parts Select! Thanks for the advice and speedy delivery.

CustomerJeffry from Athens IL

Water valve was bad, no power!

First I removed the screw holding the valve in place. I then pulled the valve out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires and water line.
I repaced the old valve with the new valve and performed the steps in reverse order and the ice maker was making ice that night. I however developed a leak and had to have another valve sent. The problem has been solved and all is well.
Parts select has been fast, friendly and helpful through my whole experience. I would like to say thanks for all your courteous help and hopefully this will help others realize the benefit of Parts select to us do-it-ourselfer!.

Thank you!

Ice in the freezer compartment

After turning of and unplugging the refrigerator, it consisted of removing the screws on the back panel. The old part had three fitting with compression nuts. I was surprised to find the new part only had onecompression nut on the water supply and the other two lines were "slip" fittings. I was a little concerned about using the existing tubing, but had no leaks. I checked to make sure the water dispenser was working before I pushed the unit back and good that I did because I had inadverently switched electrical connections. Overall, this was still an easy job.

CustomerRoger from Lusby MD

21 year old doulbe outlet water valve (plastic housing) sprung a leak

Turn off water supply line. Use Nut Driver to remove bolt holding assembly to the fridge. Disconnect (2) electrical connectors. Use wrench to disconnect water supply line, (NOTE: Since this unit is a universal type replacement, it did not re-mount to the fridge in the same fashion as the old assembly. I had to play with it to determine how to mount the new assembly in order to align & pick-up the existing bolt hole). Snap on the provided electrical connector adapter prongs and reconnect both connectors. Apply teflon tape on threads of water supply line fitting (optional). Tighten (do not over-tightened) water supply line to assembly (wrench). Use dikes to cut off compression fittings from both the ice and chilled water dispenser lines. Push lines into assembly. Re-mount assembly to fridge. Turn on water supply line. Check for leaks.

CustomerLinda from Pittsfield MA

The original part had gotten a tiny pinhole in the plastic at the seam, probably due to age

After turning the water off and unplugging the refridgerator, I took the copper inlet tubing off using an adjustable wrench. I disconnected the two fuses that give power to the unit, and using a screwdriver, disconnected the water inlet/ outlet tubing from the old unit. I pushed the tubing into its proper place in the new unit, plugged in the two color coded fuses, used a wrench to reconnect the copper water tubing, and replaced the unit. EASY!!! So, easy, in fact that a non-handy girl could do it (and I can say that, being a non-handy girl!)
