301DS - icemaker water valve

I have a 2015 3010DS with the 4-door fridge. Can anyone tell me where the water shutoff valve is for the icemaker? Looked in all the obvious (AKA easy to access) spots. I am guessing I have to unscrew one of the panels either under the fridge or the sink to get to it?

It also looks like the water heater bypass valves are in an inaccessible area as well...sort of make me wonder why they wouldn't be behind hinged doors but.....they will be once I find them and make some mods

Hi,

We have a 2015 3050s and was wonder the same thing ourselves. My wife seems to think if you lift the silver arm on the Ice Maker itself that will shut off the Ice Maker. However, that does not answer how to turn the water off to it. Especially when when it's ready to be winterized.

Thanks, I'll have to look for it there...

Jmsx2 The water shut off for 3050/3051 is behind the panel just below the fridge ( panel has six screws holding it in place) This is where the hot water tank bypass valves are also. You wife is correct that lifting the wire in the ice maker will stop it from making ice.

We drain our water lines and blow them out instead of adding the pink stuff. Last winter there was water in the ice maker valve so it froze and split. It was day to replace. Next time I am going to remove the valve and dump the water

As a follow-up to my original post....I had time to do some more looking this weekend.

By removing (completely out of the slides) the drawer under the oven, I am able to access the icemaker valve (to the right) and the water heater bypass valves (to the left) without removing any of the screwed on panels. Its not enough access to make a repair, etc., but enough to work the valves.

This is on a 2015, 3010DS...other floor plans will likely vary..

I had to replace mine after it split last winter. It doesn't take long to replace. Unwrap the foil tape that has heat trace under it. Remove the two compression nuts. There are three screws that attach the mounting bracket that are easy to access. The two electrical connections and two screws that attach the valve to the bracket. The valve was less than $15 on eBay. When in winterized this year I am going to remove the valve and drain the water out of it.
