The exact model number would help. I think your admiral is a lot like a maytag fridge. Look at the installation instructions in this manual: http://www.maytag.com/assets/product/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%202326267A.pdf or this manual to compare: http://www.maytag.com/assets/product/12842123.PDF

It does seem that the water inlet is at the valve as you suspect.

Good Luck!

How do I hook up the plumbing. Do you have an exploded diagram of the back panel where all the water hook ups are at.


It depends on the refridgerator. Some have two inlet valves. Basically, you have a water line from the home. Usually copper line. You also will have two places for water lines on the opposite side of the inlet valve. Sometimes you may only have one. The line leading from fridge ( if ice and water through door) will hookup to the line where you have the fridge connactor. The quick connects to the inlet valve. The second one will be for ice maker. That water line runs up the back of fridge into freezer. Make sure you place the quick connects in the right spot. Process of elimination because some inlet valves wont let you change the hoses once installed. Connect the main water line from the home. Connect both quick connects dont connect water lines yet. Push the water thru the door botton and see which valve opens on the inlet. Which valve on inlet opened and allowed water to come out. That is for fridge and other is for icemaker.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact.

The water will not dispense, it makes ice but not the water. When you press the glass to dispense the water the light comes on but it does not make a noise.


The inlet water valve solenoid has failed. The remedy is to replace the inlet water valve itself. This particular inlet water valve has 3 solenoids on it. You can see the inlet water valve as item 619A this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5520906&diagram_id=28703137#d28703137

If your good with a meter... unplug the unit. and slide each of the connectors of the solenoid bak just far enough to check the resistance of the solenoids. They all should have similar resistance. I am pretty sure one of your solenoids had a bad coil.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

KSSC48QMS01 water drips from the feed tube for the ice maker in the freezer compartment how do you access the water valve under the fridge?


Hi carey_ritche,

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

Before testing the water inlet valve, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

-->The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

-->Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).

-->Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Water not flowing out dispensor---or very little


First, pull the refrigerator out from the wall and inspect the water tubing for kinks. If it looks OK, check the water valve where it connects to your tubing. If it is a "saddle valve" that clamps onto a pipe, it could be clogged with minerals if you have hard water. You could try turning the valve off and on a few times, then check the flow at the dispenser. If there is no improvement, then check the flow at the inlet side of the solenoid valve, usually located near the bottom rear of the refrigerator. Enlist a helper to turn off the saddle valve (or regular plumbing valve, if equipped) then disconnect the tube going into the solenoid valve. Put the end into a bucket and ask your helper to turn on the valve. If you get a good flow, then you likely have a bad solenoid valve. You can test its operation by removing the outlet tube and operating the water dispenser. You should get a good flow (have a towel handy). If it's just a trickle, then you know it's a bad valve. Shut off the water supply and order a new valve.

Icemaker not working


The ice maker valve is a dual one. with 2 solenoids. One solenoid operates the water and the other the ice maker. So if the water works that don't mean the ice maker supply is ok. The ice maker itself controls the flow of water. So if the water valve is ok then the ice maker is faulty. I have repair photos HERE

Frigidaire refrigerator FRS24BGGB water in ice maker will not shut off


HI. The inlet assembly is malfunctioning. The solenoid is stuck at this moment(Debris will build up,in return, causing the solenoid to stick. The valve can fail mechanically, as well). this will produce an uncontrollable flow of water, in to the manifold. Follow the procedure below to address this issue further.

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush, or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

NOTE_ In most newer units, thee will be a third flow solenoid mounted near the ice maker assembly. Test this solenoid as well, if equipped.

No water to ice maker . Only 14 vac to solenoid. Solenoid is labeled for 120vac.

No water in the ice maker


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and dumps , and water doesn't go into icemaker , replace the water inlet valve ( the piece on the refrig that the wall waterline connects to . If it doesn't dump the water poured into it after freezing , then replace the icemaker .

NO WATER OR ICE AT DOOR OR IN ICE MAKER


This is Gene's solution not mine, for a Ge fridge.
Assuming the ice dispenser works fine, the first thing I would check is the water filter, then the water inlet valve on the back of the fridge.

If the water filter is more than a year old it will cause restriction to the water flow.

Locate the water inlet valve on the back of the fridge. Remove the wires from the blue solenoid and check for 120V coming to the solenoid while the water dispenser lever is depressed.

If there is 120V then the water inlet valve has to be replaced.
