GE Refrigerator Single solenoid water Inlet Valve
« on: September 27, 2021, 11:35:03 AM »

Hi All...It has been awhile since I have had an appliance issue.  You were all so kind to assist in the past and thank you all for that.  This is my issue:  I have a rather older GE Refrigerator model number TPX24PBBAWW.  My Single Solenoid water inlet valve has a cracked casing and therefore leaks water and must be replaced. All other parts on the valve are OK. 

Well I have not been able to locate the part I need which is part # WR57X10007.  My research indicates that the part is no longer available. I tried the seal the crack but to no avail...still leaks.

I am wondering if by chance there is a compatible part from another refrigerator that may work for me.  Also if any of you have knowledge of this particular fridge, perhaps I can contact the owner and discuss a purchase for the valve.

There is a replacement part for my GE but it is quite pricey and the install looks quite involved...not to mention that this fridge is old.  I am hoping just to replace the Single Solenoid water inlet valve.  If I can find one it will be a little less pricey and simple install.

Any assistance is fully appreciated.

Remove the solenoid, take it to an appliance parts supplier and see if they can match it, otherwise look on ebay for same volts, same threads/fittings/configuration

Thanks 100td for your comment.  I have been going in the same direction as you suggest and I do believe that I found the part.  My hope is that all will now come together.
