Easy fix, once you have access to the back of the fridge, you need to unhook the four water lines remember where they go, (You will also get significant water leaking from the white hose that goes to the water tank in the fridge for water dispensing). There are four individual connectors to each valve, they all run to one main plug connector at the main refrigerator wiring. I found it easiest to disconnect the main plug and swap the 4 individual wiring connectors across to the new unit on the counter with the old unit removed. The valve assembly itself is only held on with one bolt, and then hooked on the side of the inner fridge. Undo the bolt and unhook the bracket and it should come right out. Put the new unit in with the wiring on it, connect the hoses to the same valve location they were removed from, plug in the main wiring connector (be sure to match wire colors if the connector can be reversed). And you should be ready to go. (FYI: the water dispenser may take a while to refill the tank in the refrigerator; it took about 3 cycles at 20 seconds each to finally get water coming out the freezer door.)
Total job took less than 10 minutes; I spent more time cleaning the top of the refrigerator off so I could pull it away from the wall!
Replacing the assembly was fairly simple. The only problem was the plastic bracket over the input. It interfered with installing the valve assembly. My old assembly had a much smaller bracket. Ended up cutting it away with a wire cutter. Be sure to label the wire connectors and hoses as you remove them from the old assembly so you can replace them correctly on the new assembly. I simply removed each connector or hose from the old assembly and placed it on the new assembly.
I also had poor water flow due to the needle valve assembly where I connected to the water supply in my basement. The needle valve had become corroded with lime scale build up. I scrapped it down and cleaned out any remaining build up to get the water flowing again. I'll replace the needle valve assembly when I have time.
It's great to have water and ice again and not pay the repairman $300 or more for the house call.
Now my light at the water/ice receptacle is out :(. The light bulb's filament seems fine. Any idea?
