Checked out water valve as previous suggested and it checks out ok. Seems that water tank may be froze. Any suggestions to fix that. How do you get to water tank?
Answer D.R.K. To access the water tank, you'll need to remove the shelves in the refrigerator compartment. The water tanks is mounted to the back wall, just above the "Deli Drawer". If it is frozen you need to check a few things first, check the freezer air temperature, it should average 5 to 7 dgrs F. Make sure there are'nt any articles hanging over the edges of the shelve , or large, tall articles blocking the air damper in the center of the top shelf. You may want to order and install a water tank anti freeze kit 12002776 as well. Good Luck and Thanks.

If water dispenser does not work and can hear pump run when dispenser is pushed. Would it most likely be dual water valve plugged on dispenser side? Ice maker still works.
Answer Hello D.R.K. First you will need to check and see if the water filter is good. Also check the water tank in the refirgerator section and make sure it is not froze. If you remove the water line at the valve for the dispenser, and press for water and water comes out, the valve is ok. Hope this helps.

Water tube that feeds ice maker freezes closed not allowing water to enter ice machine. Just ordered dual water valve. Will this correct problem?
Answer Hello Stephen. If the water valve had a slow leak and was causing the fill tube to freeze up and clog, then the new water valve will fix the issue with the unit.
My water dispenser and ice maker both are working, but pressure at the dispenser varies a lot from use to use. You can press the dispenser button twice just seconds apart and one time pressure is "normal" and the second time it is high. The high pressure is much more than you would want to fill a glass. Is there a pressure reducer or regulator somewhere in the water system and what part would I replace to repair it ?
Answer Hello Henry,
This sounds like there may be air in your plumbing. This will cause erratic pressure effects in the water dispense system since liquid cannot be compressed and a "gas" (air) can be compressed. It's kind of like putting a spring in the water system to propel the water out when the valve is opened since the air in the system builds excessive pressure. Of course the way to tell is that the air, as it comes out of the dispense tube, will cause the water being dispensed to "sputter" and it is obvious that air is coming out with the water.
Otherwise, this would have to be caused by varying water pressure applied to the unit from the home plumbing since the system on the unit only opens a valve and the pressure applied is allowed to pass through. In other words, the refrigerator does not have any component on it to "push" the water. The water comes out by the home plumbing water pressure pushing it through the machine. The unit itself has no way to regulate the water pressure. This is done by the city water system at the meter by the street or, in the case of a well, the water tank will have a pressure regulator on it.
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.
