Mungah, There is no valve that needs to be turned on. The water travels through the valve into the filter and up to the ice-maker. Try pressing the water lever and stay on it until the water fills the filter and comes out. You should hear the valve energizing. The ice maker cycles every 2.5 hrs. approx. When it calls for water it may take several cycles to prime the line and fill the ice maker...As far as the leak, something is wrong with that compression connection, re-do it and see if it stops...Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Leaky Water Valve Inlet
The part number for the valve for a pss26msrss is:
WR57X10032 it is around $45.00-$50.00. There are several look ups available but you need a complete model number that you will find on the refrigerator usually inside upper fresh food section. you can order at repairclinic.com, sears .com ... or you can google appliance parts and see what you come up with. You might also try a local appliance store. Good Luck.

well I had a plumber connect a new hose it cost me $ 85 but it was properly install, since we added a splitter Home depot recommended but it can't take the pressure and the hose connector will leek. or if you are handy connect a splitter and a new valve

The fitting is called a John Guest fitting. It has a couple of o-ring seals inside. Once the tube is pushed into one end it is locked in. To remove, push in on the tube (opposite of what you would think to remove) then hold down on the ring around the tube, then pull out. There is a good description on this website below
