My refrigerator valve has two standard flat stacon connectors, but the valve I received has a plastic terminal connector. While there are 5 pictures of the valve on your website, none show the lead wires? Is there a conversion kit/terminal assembly available for this valve? If I cut off the plastic connector on the two wires and crimp on stacon connectors and thae valve is defective, can I still return it for a 100% refund? Standing by...
Answer Hi. After an extensive research of the water valve wiring connector issue, I find no service bulletin as of date. In the field I have modified a locator tab on the unit wire harness connector to allow the connector to be pushed on the terminal fully. This is the correct part for your model #. The terminals are the same width so they are not polarity sensitive. If you need to use stake on connectors, just make sure you only strip 3/8" wire back to be able to crimp properly and not allow any extra wire strands to hang out and have a elect. short. Use the pull wire strength test to see if the wire pulls back out of the crimped connector. If it does then pay specific attn. on the crimp tool placement on the connector for the proper crimping action. We stand behind our products as warranty is listed as long as the part is not modified. Water valve part # 5220JB2010A. Thank You.
Ice maker is not working and does not appear to have water. Water line is good to the fridge. Does this valve work as a water solenoid valve that opens when the ice maker calls for water?
Answer TM, You're correct, When the icemaker reaches the fill increment of the cycle, it closes the fill valve circuit and sends voltage to the fill valve, the valve opens and allows water to pass through the system and fill the icemaker mold, The fill valve 5220JB2010A will be a good place to start. Thanks and Good Luck
