How do you get the plastic water tubing from icemaker off of the water inlet valve?
Answer If your valve is like the one in the picture it has the newer JohnGuest fitting. You have to depress the white ring that goes around the water line against the water valve body, this should release the locking teeth and the line should pull out. The older fitting were just compression nuts that screwed off.

I installed the ice maker on my refrigerator and when I turn non the water. Won't stop. I buy another water valve inlet thinking was bad, but I install it and still doing the same thing, water wont stop.
With the water not stopping when icemaker is filling up, you will want to check to make sure that the water pressure to the unit is not too high or too low coming to the unit. If this checks ok then you need to check the wiring as best as you can.
I have replaced the water valve - I have water to the valve, but cannot get water to come out of long green tube that leads to the back of the ice maker water fill tube. Please help.
You will want to go into the freezer compartment and check to see if the fill tube that fills the icemaker is frozen. If frozen you will need to clear the ice out of the fill tube. If it is not frozen then it would most likely be the icemaker that is faulty.
I just installed part number 242252603 and my ice tray wont fill.
Answer Hello AJP. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
