Bob Johnson: Thanks for the clear photography. It make reassembly easy.
dlarson8698: Hi Guys! I've replaced my water inlet solenoid/valve on My GE fridge. I believe I have air in the line as its not dispensing water into the ice maker. I've removed the cover and mine model doesn;t have test points to initiate a harvest cycle. I only see a small and larger plastic gear. Is there any way to cycle the ice maker to verify the water is in the line? Thanks! Love the vid! Dave Larson
mario dilorenzo: I know i need to change mine. But i have two diffrent inlet Valves. How do i know which one to change? Amana aes2464bs. Thank you
tom tran: I turned off whole house water to repair plumbing. After 24 hours I turn water back on I got water going to the dispenser but not water to the ice maker. Is inlet valve problem?( Ice maker worked normal before I turn water off.)
Dalisay Pastrana: I have changed my water inlet valve, but the water coming out in the water dispenser taste awful. We can not drink the water, it smell and taste bleach. I drain it so many times, maybe more than 25 gallons already and I changed the filter, the taste still the same. It doesn't taste like that before I changed the valve. I changed the valve because it's leaking.
Len G: Excellent job, my man!
Michael Taylor: Great video. Thank you. This saved me. I had no idea how to deal with those new pushin type connectors until I watched your video.
steve ward: Great video ! Thanks !
T Singh: Watched video multiple times, ordered part and changed out part as per video. Fantastic. Will watch other DIY videos!!
Leroy Hudson: Very helpful. How do you determine its the water inlet valve is faulty
Alexandra Fry: hey this is an excellent video and thanks for posting it it may very well save my hide. i'm a floor mechanic and i had to disconnect the fridge (exact same one as shown above) and when i went to hook it back up, it started leaking. It was a very slow leak but a leak none the less. the leak occurred at the second connection in, not the copper line which baffled me. i watched your video and decided to dig in and try it. i tried several times and got the same result, a very slow leak. i tried to cut the line thinking that maybe it needed a new edge on it. same thing again. it seemed that when it was held on a certain angle it didn't leak.do you think i need to get a whole new water inlet valve assembly or should i just keep trying until i succeed. we already have the new part but that 70 bucks is an expense that i'd rather avoid. your advice and expertise in these matters is greatly appreciated
Gary Gleason: Okay, I don't need the inlet valve assembly, but need the first valve it must go through to get to the assembly, any idea of the name or part number for this part? Thanks.
Tomz Rain: Awesome you guys are really pros. Simply explained and down to the point. Great video!
Todd White: This was a helpful video. Can't wait till i get problems with my refrigerator so I can try it out.
SWLinPHX: What if you have an automatic ice maker but no water dispenser? How can you test for leaks when the ice maker only fills for 1-3 seconds every few hours? That left me stumped so I just disabled it for many months now.
yose ddjess: so it will not work if the system is not flushed? i changed the inletvalve and the ice maker too and still no ice.....
yose ddjess: i have side by side refrigirator made by kenmore model #106.58966702 i have water in my dispenser but no water is going to ice maker i replaced the valve and still nothing
Miroslaw Soczomski: I have Hot Point (GE) side by side refrigerator -HSS22GTE and I have problem but I dont know what is broken. Sometimes a water is leaking inside my refrigerator (freezer) and freezing on the bottom. Its happen sometimes, not all the time. Ice maker makes ice and everything looks OK, maybe water valve is broken? Any ideas?
yose ddjess: I got water going to the dispenser but not to the ice maker. So the inlet valve is my problem'?
Lou Janik: Thanks again, Matt! Worked great ... certainly appreciate your video.
