I am replacing the 5221JA2011J
WATER VALVE on a LG refridgerator. I dont have a problem removing the the water line to the ice maker but need to know the proceedure for reconnecting the water line to the new value. When removing the water line it cut the line off square due to the toothed ring inside the valve. How do I keep the water line from leaking after it is inserted into the valve assembly.
ANSWER Steve, First, make sure there are no burrs, dimples or shavings left inside or outside, on the water tube. Press in or down on the white plastic collar on the valve AJU72992601 insert the tube into the collar as far as possible, then release the collar, pull out slightly on the water tube, this "locks" the collar on the tube, and seals the system.
