The ice stopped flowing to my Kenmore (106.51264102) and I had to replace the original water valve with this replacement part (#2212374). The original had compression fittings for the tubes, the replacement has the push type fittings. When I reassemble everything and turn the water back on the main feed tube pops off the valve assembly.
1) is the current tube size for the main input 1/4 inch?
2) is the problem too much water pressure?
ANSWER Hello Dave. You will need to cut the end off the line so it locks into the new valve. It sounds like it is formed from the compression fitting. It needs to be smooth and flat to install properly on the cut.
