How do you get to the water tank (the one that supplies the filtered water dispenser) in the refrigerator to see if it has frozen?
Answer Haden, The water tank/reservoir R0131625 is located on the lower back wall of the refrigerator compartment. You will need to remove the crisper drawers and lower shelves to access, and check it. If it is slushy or frozen, check and make sure, the freezer temperature in not below 0 dgrs.F. (prefer 3-5 dgrs,) and the articles on the shelves are not blocking the air flow, and holding the air in the lower area of the fridge. Thanks
How easy is it to replace this valve assembly? Mine has failed, and is leaking water from a joint. Are the hose to valve connections compression fittings? Sealant needed?
Answer Hello JT. The valve 67006531 is easy to replace and does use compression fittings. to release the line, just press down on the fittings and then pull out the water lines. Make sure you have the water turned off before servicing and then turn back on after servicing.
Can I purchase the o-ring for the water valve - where the tubing connects to the valve?
Answer George, Sorry but No. The "O" rings are not available as a separate component. This valve has "compression" fittings and are internally set and sealed. You will need to replace the valve 67006531 and check to make sure the tubes are cut straight, they have no burrs, and are properly seated and locked in place in the "collars" of the valve. Thanks and Good Luck
No water at the water dispensor, no ice, I replaced the filter, and then replaced the valve AP4080862 from your store, still no water or ice? next steps?
Answer Hi Bob. Pull the unit out. Use a bucket. Put the house water supply to the water valve hose in it and make sure it has a very strong, steady stream. Make sure it does not get kinked when pushing it back in. Make sure the water valve connections are tight. I would use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist. you in your diagnosis. Open the fresh food door and use a putty knife to gently release the door switch, remove power and jump these wires (bypassing) them. See if it works now. If so then replace the door switch part . If not then remove power and look at the fresh food inner water control. Remove the cap/cover and carefully look at the micro switch part # 12575501 electrical connector pins. If they are burnt open, bypass them(jumper) and make sure the wire connections are tight. Use the wiring diagram supplied with the unit in the control panel or the kick plate. Make sure no cubes are stuck sideways stopping the ejector blades from rotating and calling for water (for the ice maker). Call for water . If there is no- water coming out of the waterline then back up into the water tank -or- coils of water line tubing behind the crisper drawers. Are they frozen ? Make sure that both sides are at regular temperatures and no colder. Freezer 0-2°. Fresh food from mid point temperatures. Look carefully at the water filter. Remove it by dropping the filter slightly enough to grasp it and rotate it to the lt a quarter turn. Re install the filter fully by rotating it to the right. Call for water and purge the air from the water lines. Only call for water no longer then 5-6 seconds at a time until all air is purged. Also make sure the water line supplying the ice maker is not frozen along with the fill tube. Remove the ice maker and use a screwdriver to check the fill tube and see if it is frozen. You can remove the fill tube and clear it and dry it completely. Reinstall it by turning it to the lt. slightly and pulling it out. Make sure that it is placed fully seated in the back of the cabinet so warm air does not collect moisture there and freeze it again. Let us know how to assist. further. Thank You.
Changed water filter, now water only dribbles out, put the bypass on and the water dispensor works fine put the filter back on the same problem returns
Answer Hello William. Based on the information you provided it sounds like the filter head 67006524 is bad and will need to be replaced. Make sure when the filet is installed, you run about 3 gallons of water through it. If it still leaks, replace the filter head in the unit. Hope this helps.
