Removal of old part was very easy. However, there had been some new changes to the new valve. The prongs on the dispenser solenoid are narrower than the original so the push on connector would not grasp the prong and kept falling off. I finally was able to squash and crimp the pushon enough to make it stay on . Also, the waterline connection was changed from a compression nut with flared tubing end to a much easier cap nut and copper compression ring. This required a trip to the hardware store to buy the cap nut and ring and also required cutting the tubing above the flared end to remove the compression nut. Once this was done, the reassembly was simple. The required time would have been about 20 minutes if I didn't have to go to the store and redisassemble three times to reconnect the water supply solenoid push on..

I removed the old valve assembly from the refrigerator's cabinet with a nut driver. I then pushed the lines for the water dispenser and ice maker into the valve and attached it to the cabinet. After connecting the water supply we had ice and water.

Observing the ice maker itself was working, and that water was flowing to the dual inlet water valve, I assumed the problem must be a faulty outflow valve. If either of the two valves do not close completely, the water slowly accumulates in the plastic line and freezes as it enters the freezer compartment. A solid plug of ice will form in the line, either causing no water to enter the ice tray, or it may leak under pressure when the valve opens briefly (as was my case). The solution was simple: change the dual inlet valve, and while this took me approximately 15 minutes to 1)turn off electricity and water to the frig, and 2)replace the part, the plastic tube going to the ice tray warmed up enough as I watched a one inch plug of ice exit the tubing. Once the power and water was turned on, and I checked for leaks, the ice maker worked like new! Not bad for a $30 fix.

Unplug the refrigerator. Remove the bottom panel the locate the valve on the left side of the refrigerator. Remove the valve. Unplug the two electrical connecters, then remove the two water lines. (At this point there will be a little water escape). Then replace the lines in the new valve, replace the electrical plugs and reassemble the bottom panel.

Ther was a video on how to repalce this part on your web site. Describing what tools were needed saved me running back and forth to my tool box. I followed the directions given in the video and repair was completed in 1/2 hour. That included meremoving then cleaning and replacing the sheves in the door. And by the way, the part was shipped the same day I ordered it and arrived on my doorstep noon the following day.

I replaced the thermostat, temperature sensor, and the run capacitor. . . Refrigerator still not cooling. I checked the start relay and measured the input terminals on the compressor for the correct resistance. . . Everything measured correctly. In a last ditch effort before calling for service, I pulled the main board, inspected it and saw the problem right away. One leg on the compression capacitor had desoldered itself. Got out my soldering iron and applied a good amount of solder to that point. Put everything back together and turn it on. . . Problem fixed. The compressor kicked on right away and started cooling the refrigerator.
