I am a 57 year old woman that is handy with tools. After reading other stories on this site I ordered the 3 parts most likely to be the problem. Defrost timer, Defrost Heater Kit and Defrost Thermostat. Turns out the heater kit included the thermostat so I ordered an extra thermostat part by accident. Got the parts in 2 days. To repair I first unplugged the refrigerator. Then I removed the inside back cover of freezer wall by removing 4 screws. I placed a couple of heavy towels in the bottom of the freezer to soak up melting ice. Set a fan in the open freezer door to blow hot air into the freezer to melt the ice on the coil. While waiting for the ice to melt I decided to go ahead and replace the defrost timer. It is located in the top of the fresh food side of the refrigerator behind the plastic cover to the light and damper door to the freezer. You need a long stemmed nut driver to easily get the screws off and back on although I was able to do it using just a magnetized nut holder and finger tightening the screw before using a regular screw driver. Remove the light bulb. The plastic cover will not come off before you remove the knob covers for the freezer and refrigerator temperature control sliders. They just push on and pull off the control levers. Remove the top screw holding on the plastic frame. There is a foam gasket on the plastic frame on the opening to the freezer be careful not to damage or lose it. Remove the 3 wires from the old timer - and place them on the new timer one by one to be sure they are correctly connected. Remove the 2 screws holding the old timer onto the plastic frame then replace the old timer with the new and screw the 2 screws back in to hold the new timer. Carefully slide the foam gasket back onto the freezer opening in the frame and position the frame back onto the refrigerator wall. Replace the one screw holding the frame on the wall. Before replacing the cover put a screw driver in the slot on the new timer and turn the screw a quarter turn - if you do not do this the compressor and fans will not start again when you plug the refrigerator back in. Put a new light bulb in the frame. Replace the plastic cover by gently hooking it over the top of the frame. Replace the temperature slider knobs. All of this took about 10 minutes. So, my coil had not completely defrosted yet so I went to lunch for an hour or more. When I came home the coil was free from ice. I unscrewed the 4 screws holding the 2 defroster heaters in place - replaced them with the 2 new heater defrosters carefully put the wiring harness in place making sure I would not pinch the wires when I replaced the back cover. I plugged the new heaters in and snapped the thermostat back onto the coil where the old one had been. Viola. I replaced the back cover with 4 screws and put the shelves back in (the cover has to be in place before the frig will work again so the fans push the cold air into the refrigerator). It has been a week and the refrigerator is working like new! I set the temperature sliders back to the center settings to begin with - labeled initial setting. The bottom heater element was completely burned and the glass was charred so I am sure it was the problem - but I replaced the thermosts and time anyway - spent $100 on parts for what Sears wanted $125 to come out to look at... I am happy! Anyone need a thermostat I have an extra? Total repair time 25 minutes - wait 2 hours for coil ice to melt.

I followed the video instructions. They were clear and consise. I removed the trim ring and controls. Them removed the housing and flapper. I did notice a small burr in the plastic chute and foam insulation. I trimmed this off with a utility in hopes this burr caused the flapper to warp. This is the 2nd time the flapper has been replaced in 1.5 yrs. The repair was really easy thanks to the video.

The video on the GE site was great. Showed step by step instructions on how to remove the old ice maker and install the new one. Also helpful was the detail on the water chute which needed to be moved from the old ice make to the new one. Saved hundreds of dollars by not having to have a repairman do this work for me.

I took off the front cover of the icemaker assembly and found that the gears were not meshing properly and therefore slipping. I removed the front panel and found that the white plastic cam unit under the large gear wheel had disengaged from the hole in the front plate which is why the gears were slipping. I refitted the cam and wheel and it worked fine but stopped again for the same reason the next day. As the plate appeared to be buckled somehow (not user repairable) and, as the unit was leaking and pooling water (which froze) in the collection unit, I decided to change the whole icemaker.

Ordered about 1300 on a Thursday, it arrived the next day at noon and was fitted straight away. As others have mentioned, the extension cable required to fit into my old fridge made it quite cumbersome however with a bit of juggling and persuasion, I got it to fit into the cut out corner of the ice container so it is completely out of the way. Job done in about 35 minutes, making ice in an hour.

Took out one hex screw, disconnect electric couplings, pulled original ice maker out and found that the water supply line to the ice maker was frozen solid as well as the shute cup. Used hair dryer to thaw out the line and the cup reinstaled old ice maker and it worked fine. Did not have to use the new part at all at this time. Am keeping new part for future use.

I'm a housewife in her late 40's. Before ordering the part, I watched your video on how to remove and install the new icemaker. First I unplugged the refrigerator. After a few minutes, I unplugged the icemaker and unscrewed it. I lifted it a bit and removed it. I did not use the icecup that comes with the part. Instead I removed the one from the old part and inserted it to the new one. Then I plugged in the new icemaker, placed it inside so as to match the holes and screwed it in. YES, it was that simple. It took me less than 10 minutes to do this. I saved myself over $100!!

Instructions that came with the part were useless. I would have created new problems if I had attempted to follow the instructions. However, once I had the old part removed and put it beside the new part, required repair process was obvious, easy and quick. Frig now makes ice better than it ever did.

I watched the video from the link that was sent to me with the shipping notice. It was very easy to understand. I had no trouble at all. I'm 75 years old woman, however, and I can fix about anything. Don't be afraid to fix appliances yourself if you feel you have the knowledge.
