Question about U-Line Refrigerator Ice Maker
Thanks for the input on my question.
Can you provide me with a step-by-step procedure for removal of the fill valve?
Do you know if U-Line (or another company) provides parts for this model? It's a discontinued model and I am not sure how old it is.
Any help is very much appreciated.
Sorry for the delay in responding...
Most models have the valve located at the back of the machine on the lower left hand side(viewed from the front). You may have to remove the entire back cover via the hex head screws to get at it. (some models have the valve located behind the front toe kick panel.)
First follow the waterline to determine the location of the valve within the fridge. If it is at the front then the toekick panel will have to be removed. If there are no visible screws then it is most likely a clip on style. If there is a knob for temperature setting then the knob may have to be pulled off first.
If there is a smaller cardboard panel at the bottom rear of the fridge remove it and you should see the valve. If not then remove the entire back cover by removing the screws along the rear perimeter of the fridge. The panel may stick to the back of the fridge but gently pull and it will remove. The valve should now be seen and can be disconnected.
Be sure to unplug the machine first and turn off the water supply. There will still be some pressure in the waterline so have a towel ready.
The valve itself is available online, I think the correct one is located at: http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=832567&PPStack=1
Just be sure to verify that it is the right one before ordering.
