Adding a small amount of water to the filter would resolve the problem for a week or two. So, I thought this was an issue with the filter and decided to try the bypass cap to help zero in on the problem. The bypass cap had no instructions concerning the need for O ring so it was trial and error. The O ring was not needed. After installation of the bypass cap, no water flow resulted and I had to replace the filter. Intermittent problem continues.

Could not have made the repair without the On lIne Instructional Installation Video. The video was extremely informative.

Valve body split and was leaking

  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Wrench set

Exactly as the instruction video said. I could have done it without the instructions but I would not have cut a piece off the two water lines and possibly had problems down the road. Also, I may not have figured out the easy way to remove the two lines from the valve body. I believe this is my 3rd time using your process and it's absolutely the best. I won't go anyplace else. Next project is probably replacing the ice maker.

The repair was very straight forward. However, there's a step that you need to press in two plastic tabs in order to remove an assembly piece. The video on this site demonstrating the entire repair made that step much easier to accomplish, and lowered the risk of breaking some of the plastic pieces. Overall, I'm very happy with how the repair went. This is an easy repair that anyone should be able to accomplish.

We have put up with this noise for several years and finally couldn't take it anymore. After research on the internet and reading about other folks solving the problem by replacing the main board, I ordered the main board and replaced it. That was a week ago. It has been a week blessed with SILENCE from the refrigerator. Hallelujah!!! It was an easy (if expensive) fix and the instructions were spot on. Anyone have a use for a defective main board?
