Hello Samurai,I have a frigidaire ref/freezer and was replacing the water inlet valve assy for the dispener and icemaker etc.

I installled the new one but found it very difficult to remove the old lines to it.The new one I put in is leaking and Iam frustrated.I dont know what I did wrong.Do I have to get a new assy or is ther a way to reseat thesse lines so they arent dripping.Also found it very hard to remove the round plug that pushes in.I s there a tool to remove these.If someone could help I would b very grateful.

If you are referring to the PEX fitting for the plastic tubing,you push IN on the ring and pull the tubing out.

To transfer to a new valve you just push the tubing in.

If you removed the plastic ring and plug you broke the new valve.

Sometimes those john guest fittings can be difficult to remove. Disconnect the line at another end (preferably downstream if possible) to release pressure. This will reduce the diameter of the line making it easier to remove. Many times this can be accomplished by removing a water filter.

OK I did ruin the valve assy.I thought the plastic ring nwas supposed to come out then insert the hose and then push the ring in.I cant beleive all you have to do is push that ring in and then pull line out.Thanks.The model # isFFHS2622MS3.I have a question about how the triple valve works.When the dispenser lever is pushed for water does the brown connecter and the yellow get energized at the same time.The control board on the front is selected for water of course.Brown is primary yellow for water and green I guess is for Ice maker.

Thank you for your help

Looking at your valve, I would say the first part of the valve receives water from the house spigot then once energized, sends waer to the filter. From the filter water  would enter the second part of the valve and flow out of whichever side of that valve is energized, either icemaker or water dispenser.

 

Based upon your statement, I would imagine the brown is for the valve leading to the filter. It should energize every time the yellow (water) and green (icemaker) is energized.

Tan is to the Water Dispenser Valve

Thank you for the reply.There is one wire going to the primary valve "brown connector'' and the other wire comes out of a black rectangular plastic little box going to the other side of the Brown connector.Iam trying to find out what that is.The other end of this box has two wires going into it.Is this the diodes or just a splice.

I dont know if there is suppose to be continuity thru this or not.Please help if you can.

I noticed I never could seem to find them on the part breakdown, so I made a list. Here ya go!


Electrolux and Frigidaire Refrigerator Water Valve Diode in Harnesses by Model and Ice
Maker Style.

Refrigerator Style Ice Maker Type Part Number
Side X Side Crescent Cube 5303918287
French Door Finger Evaporator 242102101
French Door Flex Tray 242119101
On French Door models it doesn't matter if there is a crescent cube ice maker in the
freezer section or not, order the diode according to the style of the ice maker that's in
the fresh food section.

....The diodes have been cut out for some reason,previous servicer and the wires are wire nutted together.

then all (3) portions of the Water Valve would be energized when either the IceMaker OR Dispenser called for water
