Supplies and Tools: 
Clean Towels
Crescent wrench
Flat head screwdriver

Mrs Black has a stainless steel and a white refrigerator in her kitchen. She said she noticed a water puddle near the front of the refrigerator. She called my repair services to have the appliance repaired.

This post shows the three steps to purchasing the water valve part for the refrigerator.  

Step 1: Fig.1 shows that most appliance stores carry and can order G.E. Parts.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the damaged part. This part feeds water for the ice trays and the door water service.

Step 3:
Armed with the GE Refrigerator LSHS6LGZBCS model number we drove to our local appliance store to pick up the part. Noting that the part the technician showed us on the microfiche looked different, the technician stated that this was the correct replacement partIt takes two days for the part to arrive. Fig.3 shows the incorrect part still in the sealed bag. Its important to understand how your local appliance store work with incorrect parts. Most appliance stores will not return a part even if they ordered the wrong part if the bag is torn or severely damaged
