Msd2454grq in need of diagram for plumbing water/icemaker system

I recently bought a msd2454grq and someone had removed most of the lines for the icemaker and water dispenser in an attempt at eventually replacing them.. i have all the tools and hoses i need to make all the connections, but i do not know which valves control what, and which hose is in for the filter, etc. etc. any help would be greatly appreciated

    my biggest point of confusion is that there are 2 solenoid valves both with 1 inlet and 2 outlets, could one of these have been added in as a replacement for the other?

    how do i determine which line is for incoming water source and which line goes to ice maker?

Ok here's how it goes, first line from water goes to the filter then out of it to the solenoid vale, then it goes to either the icemaker or inside of the refrigerator to the resevour tank and the to the door.

Frigidaire refridgerator leaking in icemaker


Try buying a new ice maker kit and replace it by doing it yourself. This would help you in saving money.

I recently bought a ice maker kit at lower price from Partsimple.com. they delivered it faster compare to others available in market and that too at low cost. Isn't that Good?
Try searching with compatible model no on Partsimple website.

My side by side refrigerator is making a buzzing noise from the ice maker area every few minutes


Hello,
That sound you here is the icemaker calling for water to fill the icemaker but not water into refrig to fill icemaker. If you have no water connected to icemaker,lift up and lock arm into place to turn off icemaker,if you do have water line connected but no ice is being made need to see why water from house plumbing is not coming into the refrig.

Which water line or lines do I connect to refrigerator, model # ED22RFXW01, man. 08/99


It's advisable to go with flexible plastic tube with sweet water supply. Please follow the instrction as per video attached.

Even if your refrigerator comes withan automatic icemaker, you will need to connect it to a water supply for it tomake ice. While this is not a particularly difficult job it requires someknowledge of plumbing and the use of tools. ThingsYou'll Need:
  • Compression Nuts
  • Knife Or Scissors
  • T-valves
  • 1/4-inch Copper Or Plastic Tubes
  • Drill Bits
  • Variable-speed Drills
  • Drill Bits
Read theinstruction manual that came with your refrigerator. Specific instructions forhooking up the icemaker may be included. Locate thepipe nearest the icemaker that carries cold water. Most often, this is the coldwater pipe that connects to the kitchen sink. Install at-valve in the main cold water line - not on the 3/8-inch faucet tubes - sothat there are two outlets: one to the sink and one to the icemaker supplyline. Turn offthe water. Put asleeve and compression nut over the line that will supply the icemaker in orderto tightly connect it to the water line. Turn thewater back on, and, holding the end of the tubing in the sink or over a bucket,flush the line to remove any debris. Turn the water off again. Snake theline from the water source to the icemaker connection, drilling holes in thebacks of cabinets if you have to in order to push the line through. Find theicemaker inlet from the refrigerator and attach the other end of the line usinganother compression nut. Turn thewater back on. Throw awaythe first few containers of ice to be sure the line is completely clean beforeyou use the ice.

No water coming into ice maker


First, make sure your icemaker is on. if the switch has been acidentally flipped, that is why you have no water coming in. next see if the line is pinched behind the fridge.also check to see that a child or maybe someone cleaning didnt turn it off at the water supply line. if neither of these,check to see if you water supply is working. shut it off,remove the line, turn it on again with a glass or bowl underneath to be certain you have a water supply. if that is ok, check your water line again that goes to your icemaker, it may need replacing.

Concur with the water valve solenoid; have had this experience several times with two way and even three way valves. Pull the unit and remove the mixing solenoid after the water is shut off. Sometimes a simple good cleaning and reassembly can make a difference but a replacement is the best answer. Your water dispersion is timed by the solenoid to fill the icemaker. Ergo, the water being dispensed at both ice AND drinking should flow at 1 ounce per second, optimally. The filter issue could indicate the presence of hard water debris already in the system and you'll need to trace that all the way back to the plumbing valve. If it's a needle tap, remove it and plumb in a good valve, I hate those things.

The water supply line is a small 1/4" tubing (soft copper or milky-white plastic) and uses a compression fitting. That is normal. You can go to most any hardware store and get a kit for connecting the icemaker. The kit has the tubing with fittings, and a piercing saddle valve you install on a COLD water line to supply cold water to the unit. If plumbing is not your strong point, please seek help. Although it is pretty straight forward, it can be a little tricky.

Whirlpool icemaker


Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.
