Question:

Was having problems with a faulty water valve so I replaced it but now it seems to dispense water every half hour or so without anyone hitting the dispenser. I know if water is leaking out of the icemaker assembly that usually means a faulty water valve but how about out of the water dispenser itself?

My valve is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced. If I order this part, do I need any extra attachments or are there additional parts I should order, or is this it?

Question:

Icemaker assembly is leaking out water. Is that from the icemaker or the water valve not shutting?

Malaya
Answer:

Hi Malaya, it does sound like the valve is not shutting off fast enough. We recommend first checking the gear on the icemaker. If it is good then the valve is the problem. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Question:

Replaced ice maker and water valve..still no ice

RUTH
Answer:

Hi Ruth, Thank you for your inquiry. If you have just replaced your water inlet valve and your ice maker is not making ice, you may have to wait 24 hours before the ice maker starts making ice again. Also make certain that the arm on the ice maker is in the correct position as that may also prevent the ice from being made. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

By "leaking" does that mean icicles forming on the ice maker?

Bruce for model number PLHS267ZDB4
Answer:

Hello Bruce, thank you for contacting us. If you are getting icicles forming off the ice maker it could be either the water valve or the solenoid in the ice maker. The water valve will feed the ice maker, but the ice maker has its own solenoid to control the water flow to prevent it from overflowing. if water was slowly getting through when it was suppose to be closed its possible that ice could drip forming icicles off the ice maker. Hope this helps!

Question:

The electrical connector seems to go on either way, does it matter?

Rick for model number FGUN2642LF1
Answer:

Hi Rick, Thank you for your inquiry. Yes it does matter where you plug your wires into the part. You should have three colored connectors on your fridge. Brown, yellow, and grey. The yellow goes on the yellow solenoid, the brown on the brown solenoid, and the grey goes on your green solenoid. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

Ice maker has stopped making ice. No water is filling the ice cube tray. I have checked the water supply line, it is functional. Water dispenser is working properly. I also replaced the water filter. All i can think now is the inlet valve (part # 242252702). Thoughts? If it is, how do you disconnect and re-connect the water lines from the old and to the new valve assembly? Thanks.

Keith for model number Frigidaire FFSS2614QS0
Answer:

Hi Keith, Thank you for your inquiry. If the ice maker is not making ice, the arm on the ice maker my not be in the correct position and that is something you may have to check. If this is not the issue you may have to check both the ice maker and the water inlet valve. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

The water dispenser has started dripping when it is not in use. I am worried that the water is going to drip onto the floor and ruin my flooring. Can I repair this myself?

Anne for model number LGHB2867PF7A
Answer:

Hi Anne, Thank you for the question, when the dispenser is dripping it usually means the water valve is stuck open a bit and letting water through the water lines and creating the drip. The valve will need to be replaced. Our previous customers replacing the valve stated it was a easy repair, so you should be able to do the repair on your own! Hope this helps!

Question:

My water dispenser will dispense water randomly. If i "bump" the dispenser flapper, it will stop. But then it will do it again after a short amount of time. Other times it will just sit there and drip slowly. Could this be an issue with the valve?

Gary for model number ffhs2312nso
Answer:

Hi Gary, Thank you for the question. It sounds like the water valve is stuck open enough to cause the leak. I suggest replacing the water Inlet Valve. Hope this helps!

Question:

My water won't dispense when you push on the dispenser. You can here it hum when activated. The ice maker makes ice an i have changed the filter.

Brian for model number FRS6HR5JMB1
Answer:

Hi Brian, Thank you for your inquiry. There could be a few parts that could cause this issue for you. I would suggest checking your water inlet valve. The valve has two solenoids on it, one for the water and one for the ice maker. It could be that your solenoid for the water has stopped working. You could also test the micro switch inside of your dispenser area to make sure that it is working right as well. I hope this helps. Good luck with your repair!

Question:

Would this water inlet valve going bad create a clicking sound?

FRED KEITH for model number LGUS2642LE1
Answer:

Hello Fred, that is a great question. If you are hearing clicking sounds from the water inlet valve there could be a mechanical failure inside it and may need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Question:

I replace the water inlet valve and wasn't getting any water into the ice maker tray. After looking at videos and further reading was able to remove the blockage of ice between the tube leading to the ice tray. Water is now flowing but not enough to full the tray. A matter fact the valve energize for less that 7 second. What is the remedy for such a situation?

Colin
Answer:

Dear Colin, Thank you for your inquiry. Sometimes if the ice maker has been inactive for a period of time it may take up to 24 hours for it to start making ice again. If not enough water is getting to the ice maker from the water inlet valve I would recommend using a multimeter to check the continuity of both parts to see which one is causing the issue. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

I changed water filter. I am getting water at the front of the fridge but nothing filling ice maker tray and so no ice. Any suggestions. Thanks

NEAL for model number lgus2642lpo
Answer:

Hello Neal, Thank you for the question. If the ice maker is not filling it sounds like the Water Inlet Valve would need to be replaced, Part number PS7784018. Other then the water valve you may have a defective ice maker. Hope this helps!

Broken valve, water puddle on the floor

removal of the old valve to identify the problem took the most time. Once the new valve came it it was easy. NOTE: the old one had threaded connectors, and the new one is press/fit so the ends of the tubing need to be cut. The color coding and size matching are great.

Water leaking from under fridge

This is an easy repair. Unplug appliance. Remove the old water valve by unscrewing it from the frame of the refrigerator. Disconnect the cables and all the water hoses. The hose fittings are a different type: clip off the old connectors from the hose ends and push the hoses straight into the new connectors till they fit solidly. Reconnect the cables and screw the valve back onto the frame of the refrigerator.
Unfortunately, my leak was from a hose, not the valve, so this didn't actually fix it.

Water was leaking from the valve/pump for the icemaker

Remove the screws that hold the old valve to the side of the refrigerator. Next, detach each plastic tube and attach that tube to the same place on the new valve, and repeat (there are many valves). Afterward, I realized that many of the plastic tubes had become brittle and had mineral deposits, so I bought additional tubing for ice makers and replaced each tube, one at a time.
