Both fans running/No cooling/Compressor hot & Not running

  • Customer: Jeff from Belfair, WA

First I checked the compressor, very hot to the touch & not running. I unplugged for a few minutes to cool & when I plugged it back in, it started for maybe a second or two. Then I unplugged the relay from the compressor and new instantly it was fried. So I decided to google the issue which led me too partselect.com and I then realized this relay is called the start device/Relay and it also provides overload protection for the compressor. When I received the part or parts in this case, they came in a small box which included 2 combo relays, 2 overloads, 1 ptc start relay, 1 jumper wire, 1 electrical cover, 1 instruction sheet. By using the number on the compressor I was able to see that I needed to use the ptc start relay & one of the 2 overloads which plug onto the compressor & I needed to use the white jumper wire as the terminals were a different size on the ptc relay. At first I was a little confused because I unplugged one relay and the replacement was two separate parts. Had to read instructions carefully several times to make sure I was using the correct overload and ptc relay. I plugged in the fridge to test & it worked great so I unplugged and installed the electrical cover, reinstalled cardboard cover on back of fridge & I was done. Two weeks later fridge is working great!! Hope this helps.

Called the very friendly and helpful customer rep at partselect: explained my confusion in selecting the right part I needed, and with her help slected the compressor start device kit. It turned out to be an exact match for my defective parts, and only took a few minutes to plug it all together. It now works like new! Easy fix. Anyone who can pay attention to what they are doing should be able to resolve their own problem easily. By the way, shipping was very fast!

Unplugged refrigerator. Removed back panel to expose compressor, unplugged start device, removed the wire keeper, had to use a flat screwdriver to pry off the start device from the compressor prongs. Was not sure run capacitor was damaged but replaced it any way. Installing the new start device was as simple as plugging everything into there respective places. Reinstall the wire keeper, and back panel. Plugged the refrigerator in. All is back to normal.

Pulled the refridgerator out from the wall . Unplugged it and shut off the water supply. Removed the rear lower panel . Removed the 2 bolts holding the bracket to the frame. Took off all 3 plastic nuts and pulled the lines out. Had to drill the bracket hole to remove it from the smaller bracket. Cut off the ends of all 3 lines. Mounted the new valve to the bracket. Pushed the lines into the new valve connectors. Bolted the bracket back to the frame of the refridgerator. Turned on the water and checked for leaks. Reinstalled the back lower panel and plugged in the power. Tried the water and everything worked now.

Super simple repair, as it takes only a direct replacement of the valve. Removing and replacong the sdrews on the access cover took the majority of the repair time. Two screws retain the valve, and two electrical connections are very simple and easily reached. I would recoment using good sharp side cutters instaed of a knife to cut the three water lines.

I knew my ice maker was still working and I could hear that the switch on my water was still making the usual noise when tripped, so I knew that it had to be the inlet valve. I googled some videos and luckily found PartSelect.com. I used there diagnostics, looking at the percentages of other parts used to fix like problems. The part install was very easy as all I had to do was turn off the water and unplug the frig, remove the part, cut the input line and both output lines. Then slide those into the new part, with quick connects you just slide them in, the old part had compression fittings. Reattach the new part turn on the water, plug it back up, watch for leaks, your done..pretty sweet.

I pulled the refrigerator away from the wall, unplugged the electrical cord, and turned off the water going to the refrigerator. I then removed the cover on the bottom rear of the refrigerator by removing 7 or 8 small screws. Luckily the new and old valves were exactly the same except for some color coding. There were 2 screws to remove that attached the valve to the body of the fridge. There were 3 plastic tubes that connected to the valve and 2 wiring harnesses that plugged in. Before removing them, make sure to note which tubes and wires went where. The 3 tubes on the old valve were the push in type, just like the new one. I could not pull 2 of them out like the instructions said. I had to pry them out with a screw driver. In doing so I warped about 1 inch on the end of each tube which I then cut off with a razor blade. The electrical connections pulled out easily. I then pushed each tube back into the new valve which was very easy and pushed the electrical connections in. I attached the valve to the fridge with the 2 screws, turned the water on, plugged in the electrical cord, and checked for leaks. I put the back cover on and was back in business. It took me about 40 minutes but when I was younger could have done in in half the time.

Pull out the refridgerator from the wall. Unplug the fridge and turn off water supply. Remove the cardboard cover from the bottom of the back side of the fridge. The valve assembly is on the bottom right side of the the fridge when looking at the back. Remove the valve assembly. remove the color coded electrical connectors. Push in the quick disconnect fitting on the valves and gently pull the tubes out of each valve, if it won't come out you can cut the lines, just make sure they are nice and clean and straight. The new part was a perfect fit. Push the tubing in to the size matched valve inlets reconnect the electrical connections reattach valve assembly to the fridge, next open the freezer door and lift the ice make door and take you a hair dryer,turn it on and hold it about 1-2 inches away from the rubber hose that is used to fill the ice maker for about 2-3 minutes to remove the ice blockage. Once it is clear, turn on the water check for leaks and verify correct operation of water and ice. Reinstall the card board, push the fridge back into place. and enjoy a cool beverage and pat your self on the back cause you just fixed your ice maker!

I followed the instructions in the package, after having viewed the video (from PartSelect, but you have to go to youtube for it.) Replacing the valve got the cold water flowing but there still is no water going to the ice maker.

Continuous water filling Ice maker

First Shut off Water supply from wall/valve. Turned off Ice maker switch interior freezer compartment. Removed power cord from wall plug, important for safety due to close proximity of cooling fan to valve, and resets electrical cycle to new valve to start water flow to ice maker once replaced. Removed lower back cardboard access to frig with nut driver, cleaned all (dust-bunnies)from coils, drip pan and all areas under frig with shop vac. Remove 2 screws (same size nut as cardboard back) to remove valve bracket from mount. This model frig had push release connectors so was even easier than expected, push collars up and pull out tubing, (residual water came out so have towel handy) had new valve positioned exactly how would reinstall so just pushed water line into new valve connector, then repeated process for all 3 water lines. Last unplugged electrical connectors and plugged into new valve in same position. Reattached new valve to mount w/2 screws, turned on water supply to check connections for leaks. (Finding none) Plugged electrical cord back into wall, used water pitcher to cycle water thru door water dispenser, waited for first cycle of water to fill ice maker. So easy and quick. Thank you to previous people who gave directions, and Partselect for easy diagrams, ordering, and shipping quickly.
