Product Description

Water Inlet Valve Specifications

If you notice that the ice maker in your refrigerator is leaking or is not making or dispensing ice, you may need to replace the water inlet valve. When energized, the water inlet valve releases water from the supply line into the ice mold. The water inlet valve is in the back of your refrigerator so you will need to pull the fridge out from the wall before completing this repair. To complete this job, you will need a 1/2 inch wrench, a 1/4 inch nut driver and a utility knife. If your old inlet valve has a screw-in fitting, you may need to simply cut the end of the hose to fit in the new part. Be sure to disconnect both the water and power supply from the refrigerator prior to beginning this repair.

The icemaker makes ice and then cycles through until the icemaker is replenished with water. Then it turns off - but then it recycles again before ice is made, and refills with water again and again. Thus, creating a large block of ice. It doesn't appear to be the water valve - but the icemaker itself is not properly cycling after it dispenses ice cubes. What do you think?
For model number PLHT219TCBN
Hello John, thank you for your question. It sounds like the water valve is working, as its bringing water up to the unit. However, it may be staying open just a bit, and allowing water to slowly accumulate in the icemaker and then you end up with a block of ice. I would check to see if you can notice any water coming out of the inlet tube, test the valve, and if that is not the issue the only other possibility would be the icemaker itself. I hope this helps!

Replacing water inlet valve, how do i reinsert the water line to the bottom of the valve
For model number glrt188wdlb
Hi Ray, Thank you for your question. If your old water line has a nut on the end, you will have to cut that nut off. The water valve has a new quick connect. Once you have cut that nut from the end of your water line, you can just push the water line into the water valve. Good luck with your repair.

Is there a trick to installing the hose to this unit? Do I need glue?
Hello Craig, Thanks for your question. You may need to cut the end of the hose to help fit it into the valve. I hope this helps.

Hi there, i’m trying to troubleshoot this ice maker issue on my Kenmore freezer. I got a new water solenoid/valve from you and installed but still not getting water to the ice maker. You think i need to replace the ice maker itself?
For model number 253.44733106
Hi Jay, Thank you for your question. If you have just replaced your water inlet valve, it can take up to 24 hours for the ice maker to start working. If it is has been more than 24 hours since the ice maker has been installed, then check the water lines and the water filter to see if there are any clogs. Also, make sure that the water lines are fitted correctly. If all of this checks out fine, you will need to check the water inlet valve with a multi-meter to see if it is working. Set your multi-meter to the Rx1 setting and touch the terminals with the probes. You are testing for continuity and should receive a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. If you receive any other reading, you need a replacement water inlet valve. We hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day.

We installed new filter still not getting water to ice make we have water at the filter but don't go through filter
For model number FGUI2149LP1
Hello Patty, thank you for your question. We would recommend testing the water valve. It sounds like the water valve that provides water to the filter first is not opening to allow water to come through the filter. I hope this helps!

Inlet valve for ice maker, only getting water up to the valve, how to properly test solenoid with multi- meter
Hello Derrick, Thank you for the question. You can test to see if the water valve is getting 120 vac when the icemaker calls for water. If there is power then the water valve would be the issue. Hope this helps!

How do I know if my ice maker is bad it is not making ice
For model number 25370502413
Hello Aaron, Thank you for the question. If the ice maker is filling with water but not making and dumping ice it may be defective. If it is not filling and the water filter has been changed in the last 6 months you can try to fill the ice tray with water to see if it makes and dumps ice normally, if so you may have a defective Water Valve.If it still does not make and dump ice then it is a defective4 Ice Maker. Hope this helps!

    Ice Maker water would constantly drip. Forming a huge block of Ice.
    Pulled refrig away from wall, shut off water supply. Removed two screws holding the old water value on the back of the refrig. Removed the two water lines from the value. Hooked water lines up to the new value and bolted the two screws and the new value on. Turned on water and pushed refrig back into position. Simple and it worked. No more huge blocks of ice. I have Cubes!!!

    Water inlet valve stuck open
    Turned off water to inlet valve. Unbolted valve from back of unit, disconnect water supply line from valve, disconnected water line to ice maker. Put on new compression ring around water supply line. Pressed ice maker line into new valve, installed valve back on unit, then connected main supply line to valve. Works like a charm.

    The fan had stopped spinning. According to the internet it should spin freely if I use my hand, but it wouldn't.
    After pulling the fridge away from the wall and opening the paper backing on the bottom, I could see the motor. It's affixed to 3 metal ribs by 3 small screw/nuts. There is also a 12" wiring harness that led to a simple disconnect. Removing the disconnect and the 3 nuts was easy. However, there was no room to remove the motor with the fan attached. Between frame parts, the drip pan below, the ribs, and small, delicate copper tubing that can't get bent, it wouldn't fit thru any openings. So we rotated the motor inside the framework until the blade faced out, then reached in with a pair of needle nose pliers to remove the washer. Removing the washer is easy, it's just difficult to reach. With the washer off the fan was out of the way and very carefully (it was tight) the motor came out. Reverse was the same issue. Motor tight going in, not a lot of room to maneuver fan onto motor, and needed needle nose to tighten washer again. Make sure you tighten the washer before you install the motor on the prongs. Otherwise you need to remove it from the ribs, twist it to face you, then reinstall it on the prongs. Also, I felt I was stripping the nuts into the new motor. Turns out the holes in the motor aren't tapped. i realized the nuts are self tapping once I looked at them. I'm a big time DIYer and this wasn't bad at all. If your motor/fan assembly comes out whole, it's even easier.

    Ice maker not making ice
    Pulled unit away from wall and shut off water and unplugged unit. Installed water valve and reassembled, plugged back in and turned on water and checked for leaks. All good. However there is no water getting into the ice maker. The unit itself is going thru a cycle of attempting to make ice and the bail is moving and you can hear the solenoid activate but no water. I have tried to blow thru the tube going to the maker but it seems to be plugged by something. I do not know if there is another valve up there or how to clean it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
