well, my problem was the dual water valve. I check the two water valve connectors, one was good ( yellow ) and the other connector (brown) was bad. I tested them both with an ohms meter, of course all power was off. I think when ever there's a problem with not receiving ICE this should be done before replacing the ice-maker for there's a lot of things going on in this area. The Brown Connector releases the water into the ice-tray (that tested Bad with a reading of 257 from ohms meter,and the yellow had a sound from ohms for full contact a good reading. The brown valve was bad.

Screws on the door of the dishwasher were very loose.

We had an Appliance Repair service come to fix, and they replaced the ice maker and the water valve, but ice maker was still not performing properly. We use RO water to fill the ice maker and because the water was also going through the charcoal cartridge, there wasn't enough water pressure to completely fill the tray. Plus charcoal filter was probably clogged. The original Blue Bypass Cap was nowhere to be found and I even called Kitchenaid to get one. They were of no help. But found your site, and found the part I needed. And best of all, ice maker is not jamming and is now making real ice cubes, not hollow, thin ones. And the water dispenser is now working too, so am very happy that such a small thing, fixed the big problem. Who knows, a clogged charcoal filter may have been the whole problem from the start.

refrigerator/freezer would not cool

  • Customer: James from Bedford NH
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Set the freezer control knob to OFF. Use a long bottle brush to clean the cooling fins below the freezer by removing the lower front grill. Pull fridge away from wall, unplug, remove rear panel near bottom, remove power connector to the unit attached to the large black tank(condenser). Be very careful not to damage the quick connect housing. There is a wire spring holding the capacitor/relay assembly to the condenser. The black run capacitor and the white overload relay come off together. CAUTION, THE CAPACITOR MAY STILL BE HOLDING A CHARGE. Don't separate the two items unless you are familiar with electrical safety precautions. Plug in the new items on the condenser, reconnect the power cord, plug in the fridge and turn it on using the freezer control knob. You should hear the condenser start. It is possible to remove the two parts and test them separately. My capacitor was fine but the relay had blown. I replaced both since it seems most problems are one or the other and it was easier to do them together. Cleaning the cooling coil and removing/replacing the back cover are the most time consuming parts of the procedure. The actual repair took 5 minutes once I had access.

The Ice and water filter was old. Had to replace.

I removed the bottom drawer, the two upper drawers and the glass that covered the lower drawer. Took three screws out of the left side pantry end cap and replaced it with the new part. New end cap in place, put the drawers back in, put the cover back on and it works like a charm.

Frige and freezer quit working

Two days prior to realizing unit was not cooling I was hearing a clicking sound at the back. My google research told me a clicking sound indicates a problem with the "relay overload". If you remove this and it rattles when you shake it, that tells you it is bad. Mine rattled alot. To start, I unplugged the fridge. Removed the vented panel at the exterior lower rear. Removed the wire clip holding the "relay overload" in place. Unplugged the "relay overload" from the compressor. Note that the "run capacitor" is plugged in to the "relay overload" and they will appear as one unit. I replaced both w/new. I plugged the two together, plugged them into the compressor, plugged the frige in to test and it worked. Put the wire clip earlier removed back in place. Reinstall the vented panel. Push frige back into place.

Pantry cover hinge broke

Repair was helped by reading what others shared with similar issue helped a lot. First remove all bins and glass pane. Use the nut driver to remove three screws that hold the pantry. Be careful while removing it from refrigerator. There a an vent control that clips onto back side of refrigerator and attaches to pantry end cap. Remove this piece, be careful as not to break it. This piece ( the guts) attaches to the slide piece that attaches to the controller, remove carefully by turning it to align the slot tab. Then remove the pantry sliders by two screws by using your nut driver. Reverse these steps for reinstall. Then place completed unit into refrigerator, by clipping the back vent control, don't forget the square foam gasket. Then slide the pantry end cap into place, pay attention to the front of the end cap as you may need to slide into the clip to lock in place. Then screw in the three screws, careful not to tighten to much, as it might crack.

Ice maker pouring water into icebucket

Watching the video made this dead easy. If I had a newer refrigerator, I suspect it would have taken 10 minutes. Since I have an older 'fridge, I ran into two issues not in the PartSelect video. First - there were no "clips" to slip the icemaker into/out of, the unit was screwed directly into the freezer wall. Kinda hard to see the screws, especially the one in front, but not a big problem. Second - there is a wire-harness clip at the back side of the icemaker, that hooks onto the ledge of the back connector, just under the screw. That clip had slipped, and until I figured that out and reseated it, it made getting to the rear screw wit the nutdriver a serious pain. Other than those two issues, though, the job was exactly as easy as the video makes it look!

Local appliance repair co. diagnosed and replaced motorized door in refrigerator section; problem manifested itself again one week later. Same appliance repair co. then said it was probably the defrost thermostat, they changed thermostat; problem came back after another week. I went on your site and figured that the next most likely thing was the defrost heater. I ordered one and it came the next day. I dismantled the various panels, sensor covers, air dams and removed and replaced the heater element. After watching the refrigeration cycle for a couple of days I saw that the problem appeared to be cured then I replaced the panel and sensor and fan covers and put the ice cream back in. That was a week ago, it seems to be ok now.

I was skeptical when others said it took about 5 minutes to do this repair, but they were right. The hardest part is emptying the fridge enough to get drawers out. After that it's a matter of removing a few screws, and putting the new piece in. Really simple!
