A water supply valve is required to control the water coming into the appliance if your refrigerator has a water and ice dispenser feature, or even just an installed ice maker. The supply valve is normally situated at the bottom backside regarding the fridge behind an access panel. The homeвЂ™s water supply ordinarily travels through copper tubing connected to the valve inlet slot.
The supply valve can be an electrically-control component with inlet and socket water ports and another or even more solenoids.
whenever signaled by way of a control board, the solenoid or solenoids will available to enable water to enter an inlet hose which directs water with an optional water filter to your dispenser and/or to an ice maker tray fill tube. In the long run, the solenoids can fail or calcium deposits can build-up within the valve producing an obstruction, leading to the ice maker not able to create ice and restricted, or no, water taken from the dispenser as soon as the lever is pushed.
