The function of the Refrigerator Water Inlet Valve (Triple Solenoid Water-Valve, Water Valve, Water Inlet Valve, Refrigerator Water Inlet Valve Assembly) is to release water from the supply line when activated, and send it through to your water dispenser or ice maker in your refrigerator. The water inlet valve is located at the back of the refrigerator, and connects to the water supply. The valve can break from material fatigue or normal use. If your water inlet valve is malfunctioning, you could be getting a lack of water to the inside of your refrigerator. Your ice maker may not produce cubes or your water dispenser may not work. The water inlet valve must be replaced if the solenoids no longer have continuity or the valve has internal blockage. This valve measures approximately 7 inches long and 4.5 inches wide, and is constructed of plastic and metal. It comes in blue, and includes the valve and mounting bracket.

icemaker stopped making ice

Even though my wife said that our icemaker broke, there was actually nothing wrong with it. It was the valve that let water flow in during the 'harvest' cycle.
A real easy way to test the icemaker without voltage and current measurements, is to fill the tray by hand with a little cup of water; wait till the water freezes and see if the maker dumped the ice into the bin.

water leaking out of refrigerator

In my specific appliance the water valve is located in the bottom right hand corner looking at it from the back. To get to it I remove the thin layer of cardboard the covers the back of the fridge. I then proceeded to disconnect the 1/4" copper tubing which is the water feed coming out of the wall. Then I removed the screws that hold the valve assembly in place. I took the water valve out and removed the electrical connections as well as the plastic tubing which feed the water dispenser and the ice maker. To install the new water valve it was just a matter of reversing steps.

This is the replacement water filter base for your refrigerator. It is approximately 3-1/2 inches by 3 inches. It is made of white plastic with two blue water filter receptacles. The water filter base connects to your refrigerator and is the part that your two-headed water filter fits into. The main reason you would want to replace it is if you notice a leak when you connect the water filter, or if it is noticeably cracked or damaged. This part is sold individually and is a genuine OEM part.

Water filter would not disconnect from OEM Water Filter Base

Disconnect the two water supply tubes at the base of the Water Filter Base. Using a 7/16" open end wrench, press up on the blue "O" rings to disconnect the tubes. Use a Using an 8" long magnetic phillips head screw driver I was able to unscrew the 4 short screws holding the original water filter base and the immovable attached water filter. Replacement was easy. Simply slide the new base into the fixed slot on the refrigerator and reinstall the 4 holding screws. Reconnect the water supply tubes to the Water Filter Base. Install a new water filter.

This kit includes the ice maker, power cord, bail arm, and fill cup. If your ice maker is not making or dispensing ice, or you notice a leak, you may need to replace the rear-mount ice maker assembly. This ice maker mounts to the back panel in the freezer section of the side-by-side refrigerator. If you are having an issue with the arm of this kit hitting the shelf, you will have to replace the shelf. You can find the shelf by searching PS1152582. To complete this repair, you will need a 1/4-inch nut driver and a small flat blade screwdriver.

Customer Repair Stories

Icemaker would not eject ice from tray

After three years of cussing this 5-year old fridge for not ejecting the ice, and having to reach in and pull it out by hand, I fixed it with $100 and five minutes. Worse, I probably could have gotten Sears to honor the warranty and replace it when it first started acting up.

Repair could not have been easier. Loosened the two screws/fasteners with 1/4" drive socket set (straight-slot screwdriver wouldn't bite in the shallow slot). Do not remove screws completely; assy lifts up and off the screws for removal. Turn the unit slightly, unclip the electrical connector and remove. Installation is the reverse. Ensure assy sits flush on the screws to assure tray is level.

Although I probably could/should have unplugged the fridge first, I did not. I made sure the ice maker assy was off prior to installation to keep it from cycling on as I attached the ice maker electrical connector, which is before the remounting procedure.

Now it's making so much ice I have to find the plastic shelf cover for the ice bin to keep it from overflowing (which also helps move the ice level bar up to temporarily suspend ice production).

The Bottom Door Bin is also commonly known as a "cantilever shelf" is a clear plastic drawer which holds items in the bottom area of your fridge's interior, on the door. This OEM part is very easy to install and will not require any tools, you will just need to snap the mounting tabs into place for removal and installation. If damaged you will notice visible damage or have problems holding items in the fridge. If damaged, it should be replaced. Check your model number and user manual to see if this is the right part for you. This is important, as many fridges use multiple door bins, many of which vary slightly. This part is sold individually.

Took bin out to wash and it broke getting it out

No tools needed. Just had to slide the bin into place. HOWEVER, the bin has a jig-jagged style plastic groves on each side that need to be slide carefully into place. I couldn't get the orginal bin out in order to wash it. It looked easy - just slide it up and out of place, but when I did that the back, inter-locking pieces cracked off. I believe this is a terrible design and the bin should be replaced at the manufactures cost! The other bin slide in there with some elbow-grease. Good Luck!

This manufacturer-approved air filter system for refrigerators eliminates odors and any impurities. It does this by neutralizing and removing odor-causing molecules. For best results, it is important to change the filter every 6 months to ensure that food is kept fresh, and the humidity is controlled. This part measures about 7 inches wide and 5 inches deep. Follow installation instructions provided by the manufacturer when installing this part to ensure accurate results and further guidance. Remember to unplug the refrigerator from the power source before starting this project. The air filter may be located in different places depending on your appliance, but is usually on the inner right or left side. See your manual for exact location. Our customers rated this as a very easy repair that takes only a few minutes; just locate and remove the old air filter and insert the new one to complete the repair, which requires no tools.

If you find that there is excessive frost in your freezer, or the freezer will not defrost, you may need to replace the defrost thermostat. The defrost thermostat kit comes with the clip, leads, and heat shrink. To access the defrost thermostat for this repair, you will need to remove your freezer shelves, as well as the back panel of your freezer. To complete this repair, you will need a 1/4-inch nut driver, a set of wire strippers and crimpers, and a heat gun or blow dryer. Before you begin this repair, be sure to disconnect the power source from the appliance.

Running but not cooling off and frost in the back of the freezer

Unplugged the refrigerator. Removed the 4 hex head screws on the lower back panel at the back of the freezer. Used a blow dryer to defrost the pipes and area surrounding the thermostat. Unplug the connection from the back of the freezer, unplug the 2 wires, one that goes to the heater, one that comes from power. Unclip the thermostat from the pipe and note which pipe you unclipped it from. Cut the wires on the old thermostat midway between the plugs and the sensor. Using the supplied butt connectors, strip the wire ends on color matched wires (should be a dark blue or black) and crimp them together. Repeat with the other wire. Discard the white shrink wrapping. I wasn't able to get it small enough with a hair dryer or lighter. Plug the thermostat back into it's respective plugs. Clip the thermostat back onto the pipe you removed it from. Replace the back panel with the four screws. Ensure the bottom of the panel is set inside of the drip tray. Replace any shelving you removed. Plug the refrigerator back into the wall. Your done!
