Title (EN) VALVE FOR A REFRIGERATOR WATER DISPENSER
(FR) VALVE POUR DISTRIBUTEUR D'EAU DE REFRIGERATEUR
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A water dispenser valve assembly with a tube connected to a water supply providing a passageway for the fluid. The water dispenser assembly has a spring assembly including a pivot member operably connected to a leaf spring. A pinch member is connected to the leaf spring for moving against the tube to close the passageway. The spring assembly is biased to close the passageway in the tube. An activation member activated by a user moves the pivot member to apply a force on the leaf spring causing the leaf spring to invert back away from the tube and disengage the pinch member from the tube to allow fluid to flow through the passageway.
(FR)L'invention concerne un ensemble valve de distributeur d'eau présentant un tube relié à une alimentation en eau fournissant un passage pour le fluide. L'ensemble distributeur d'eau présente un ensemble ressort comprenant un élément pivot relié de manière opérationnelle à un ressort à lames. Un élément de pincement est relié au ressort à lames en vue de son déplacement à l'encontre du tube afin de fermer le passage. L'ensemble ressort est sollicité pour fermer le passage dans le tube. Un élément d'actionnement activé par un utilisateur déplace l'élément pivot afin d'exercer une force sur le ressort à lames de manière à inverser sa pression en l'éloignant du tube et à désemboîter l'élément de pincement du tube afin de permettre l'écoulement du fluide à travers le passage.
