Refrigerator to warm freezer ok

  • Customer: Christopher from Madison Heights MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 9 of 10 people found this instruction helpful
The comments from customers experiences gave me the confidence that the defrost timer was the problem since the compressor was still working and it went just as they all said, four 1/4' hex head screws and I had access to the old timer, unplugged the old ,plugged in the new and put the four screws back in. Nothing happened so after a while I looked a bit harder at the accessable part of the timer after intallation and saw what looked like a dial. I turned the dialclockwise and immediatly the compressor turned on. I have not found any information as to how much or little to turn this dial which obviously is an adjustable cycle setting so I just turned it all the way, so far everything is working alright.

water valve leak

This Valve Has 2 Different Size Water Lines Going In To It And They Are Different Diameters.Each Has Its Own Collar That Locks The Lines Into It. Make Sure That You Put The Right Size Collar Over The Line Before You Insert It Into The Valve, Because Once You Put The Line In You Cant Pull It Back Out Without Messing Up The Valve. Make Sure It Is Right Because You Only Get One Shot At It.

Ice Maker was leaking all over freezer compartment

Pulled out the fridge, took off the cardboard back. Get a nut driver instead of screwdriver (easier). TURN OFF WATER NOW. UNPLUG FRIDGE NOW. Removed one screw holding valve. Pulled off electrical connectors. Use two small adjustable wrenches to remove water lines. Tag the plastic tubes (I marked RED and BLUE). Grab the new valve and try to stuff it into the same space. Whoops ! Dang plastic housing protecting the electrical from the water is in the way. Have to cut most of it out to make it fit. By the way, DONT follow the instructions about take the bracket off the OLD solenoid. You don't need it. Just throw it away. Connect the wires (remember to use the adapters sent with the new solenoid) Mount the new solenoid (now that the plastic is out of the way) with the one screw (nut driver). Hook up the supply water line (wrenches). Hook up the plastic tubes (aren't you glad you marked them ?). The tubes just push into the new solenoid, no more threads. I just left the plastic nuts on the tubing. TURN ON THE WATER. Check your connections for leaking. Do this before plugging in the fridge. If OK, plug in the fridge. Run some water on the door, look in about an hour to see if cubes are making now. Put cardboard back on fridge. Push fridge back against wall. CONGRATULATE YOURSELF ON A JOB WELL DONE.

pretty straight forward,removed threw screws to replace the defrost timer and reverse the procedure. To replace the defrost unit 1st removed metal back plate in freezer. Step 2 defrost freezer. step 3 remove four screws that hold defrost elements in freezer compartment. Step 4 install new defrost elements and secure back in place with four screws. step 5 optional read old defrost heaters with ohm meter to confirm the defective part. step 6 plug back in frig and enjoy a cool brewski ahhhhh. By the way only one defrost element was bad (open) but as mentioned in literature which came with new derost elements I replaced both of them. Thanks again for all the help on this, saved me $2000 on a new frig.

Rust on parts

I recommend taking a picture of any part before it is removed. Remove all screws. Use the diagram provided by this site for the dismantle of the ice bucket parts. I replaced the plate and ice auger. I found that my rusted screws for the plate would not fit the new plate, so I bought replacement screws at Home Depot. After I got all the blades off, I realized that I should have probably replaced a couple of them as well. Next time I decide to repair an item, I will totally inspect all parts before ordering. Order was shipped immediately. Postal Carrier showed me why he dropped off at another location which caused a delay of a couple of days. Not the senders problem. I had a hard time remembering just how the rod on the side was suppose to fit. I should have taken a picture. (laughing) I finally figured it out. My ice maker is as good as new. So happy I did this. My husband always says: " Just get a new refrigerator." I was raised to fix things until they just die. He was so impressed that I was able to follow the diagram and re-install the ice bucket. All is great. I will use this site again. They are a great company. I am sure I saved hundreds of dollars for a repairman who would have replaced the whole unit and not taken the time for the repair and replacement of parts. This was just "as easy as pie".

CAMS ON FREEZER DOOR BROKE

  • Customer: WALTER from FROSTBURG MD
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 8 of 9 people found this instruction helpful
REMOVED TOP HINGE AND ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR (FREEZER DOOR HAS ICE AND WATER DISPENSERS) THEN HAD TO TURN OFF WATER SUPPLY TO UNIT AND DISCONNECT THE HOSE TO THE DOOR AND REMOVE THE SPRING PROTECTOR FROM THE HOSE -- THIS REQUIRED REMOVAL OF THE COMPRESSION FITTINGS IN THE WATER LINE SO SPRING WOULD COME OFF OF THE TUBE.
THEN REMOVED BOTTOM HINGE FROM THE DOOR AND USED SAW TO REMOVE THE RIVET THAT HAD HELD THE CAM TO THE HINGE, USED A NUT AND BOLT TO ATTACH NEW CAM. PUT OTHER CAM (USED TWO) IN THE HINGE AND REPLACED LOWER HINGE UNIT ON THE DOOR. THEN REATTACHED BOTH HINGES TO THE REFRIGERATOR AND LINED UP THE DOOR PUT THE SPRING PROTECTOR AND COMPRESSION FITTINGS BACK ON PLASTIC TUBING AND RECONNECTED THE WATER SUPPLY AND ELECTRIC FITTING, TURNED ON WATER TO UNIT AND PRAYED THERE WERE NO LEAKS. PRAYER WAS ANSWERED, THE WATER DISPENSER WORKED PROPERLY AND THE ICE MAKER FILLED WITH WATER SO I THEN REPLACED THE HINGE COVER ON TOP OF THE UNIT AND THE GRILL AT THE BOTTOM AND HAD A PEPSI. A FEW YEARS AGO I HAD REPLACED THE CAMS ON THE OTHER DOOR WHICH HAD NO WATER/ELECTIC CONNECTIONS AND WAS A MUCH SIMPLER JOB.

First, I had to remove the back panel in the freezer. This exposes the cooling coils and the Defrost Heater which is located toward the bottom underneath the cooling coils. There are four screws that have to be removed before the old Defrost Heater can be taken out. There are two wires that go from the Defrost Heater to the power connection. These wires are blue and pink. I had to remove some pieces in the back at the top of the freezer to expose the power connection for the Defrost Heater. These pieces were held in place with phillips screws, so they easily came out to reveal the power connection. The power connection is a simple plug-in type. The Defrost Thermostat is also included with the new Defrost Heater. This is a round piece which is clamped onto the Cooling Coils. I removed the old Defrost Thermostat. It is connected to the same power connection with the Defrost Heater. After I mounted the new Defrost Heater and Defrost Thermostat and connected the power, the refrigerator has worked perfectly.
