Valve wouldn't fill the ice maker
Old valve used compression fittings on the plastic lines. The new valve uses the push oring fittings which required cutting off the end of each line. The line to the ice maker was quite short to start with and after cutting the end off it was to short which required splicing in a short piece of line. After installation it works fine

No water to ice maker. Fill ice tray and ice would dispence.
Turned off water to refrigerator and unplugged the power. removed the back using 1/4" nut driver, disconnected the water line into the valve control. Removed the two screws holding the water valves and removed from unit. The wiring is color coded so unplugged from unit and then cut the water lines one at a time and installed in the new unit by pushing into place. reconnected the wires., reinstalled in frig and put cover back. reconnected the main water line and plugged into power source. the whole thing took less than 30 minutes. very easy repair. the ice maker still didn't produce ice. 4 days later it started working fine. needs time to reset.

No ice being made, no water from water dispenser
I followed instructions from repair video. Watched it 3 time and had it handy during install if I need to refer to it. A little more water than I expected came from tubing, but not too much. One hand towel was sufficient. Make sure to clean up water on electrical connectors before reattaching and plugging in refrigerator. Everything went exactly as the video described. No surprises. As I replaced filter at same time I let water flow from dispenser (5-6 12oz glasses) until it was clear. Ice maker went into production immediately, too, and I had plenty in just a few hours. Thanks

Valve assembly had a crack so that under water pressure, it sprayed water out the back of the valve assy.
Watched the video and it was very simple to replace with an exact replacement. Water dispensing is working now.

Thru door water dispenser was dripping
The link to the u-tube video on this web site was extremely helpful. When I removed the old valve, however, it had threaded fittings on the water lines, and the new valve had push-in type fittings. After initial panic, and looking closely at the parts, I found that the lines were the right size to simply cut off the ends of each line and push them into the new valve. When you cut off the lines, as recommended in the video even for ones from push-in connectors, be sure to cut off enough that the last half inch or so of the lines are smooth and straight. I had a leak on two of them because the line was distorted from the old threaded fittings - after taking them back out, cutting off another quarter inch and reconnecting they were fine. Also be careful to route the lines correctly when reconnecting to the new valve, if they aren't routed correctly, they can put lots of stress on the connectors when reassembled. Problem is solved, and working fine for several days now.
