Wayland From Fresno, CA

Oct 18, 2012

I watched a 5-minute video of a man removing the door hinge, the face plate, the other connections down to the actuator itself. I called Emerald and talked to Ron Harrigan (Fresno CA). He pointed me to the video and said it was a simply operation. I followed the instruction step by step, but when I finished, the light in the front of the door would not come on and the dispenser would put out water but not ice. I called Ron again. He said, "Go through the process again, step by step." When I got to step two, I saw that I had not securely fastened two electrical joints together. I snapped those babies into place, and it was all downhill! We have ice. We have water. We have an actuator that sings! Thanks, video. Thanks, Ron.
