The old part had fallen completely out so I just had to put the new part back into place, it was a bit tight, and you had to twist it into place, but the directions that came with the part really helped. It took me longer then it should have as I could not fit my hand up into the chute very easily. Once I figured out the layout of the chute and could get the part in the proper place to twist it into place it worked well.

Door would not close fully on its own

I inspected the hinges and found broken cams and door stop on the bottom hinge. I found the parts list for the door and ordered the parts I thought I needed. I found that I did not look at the parts list for the body of the unit and missed a key item and that required me to order another part that made the repair. I should have dug a little deeper before I placed my order and it would have been even easier. I was amazed at the speed I received the parts I needed. I ordered the hinge pin mid-morning and the part was on my porch the next afternoon.

Reading other after action write-ups I diagnosed the problem to be either the defrost timer or defrost thermostat so I decided to replace both. The timer was hard to find. Turns out it was inside the kickplate grill which made it hard to demount and remount while maneuvering the wire connector around. Just took a few minutes longer than expected. The thermostat was inside the freezer compartment requiring the refrig to be off and defrosted (heavy ice buildup on the coils confirmed diagnosis). Had to cut old thermostat wires and reattach new with crimp style wire nuts (provided with thermostat). Directions said to use silicone sealant in wire nuts - NOT provided. Need to attach new thermostat on top of coils with tie wrap (not provided). Overall reasonably easy with great results. Parts arrived very fast.

Refrigerator door wouldn't close right

GET 2 "door closing cams"
Yep. same as some others here. found some black plastic pieces on the floor, when door wasn't closing right. I took the door off by taking off the top bracket. very easy. bottom bracket has the broken cam riveted to it. need hacksaw to get this off then punch it through with hammer and a screwdriver. this is the only part that took a little while. replace the closing cam and find a small nut & bolt or screw to replace the rivet you just sawed in half.
Replace the closing cam that is on the bottom the the door as well. even if yours isn't broken. replace it anyway. put door back on and done. not a diffucult project if you know about the rivet and needing 2 closing cams beforehand. good luck

CAMS ON FREEZER DOOR BROKE

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 7 of 8 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.

Ice machine wasnt making ice

First I turned the refrigerator and water line off. Then moved to the freezer section, followed the directions, removed the two screws. Directions state to not remove them but I had to in this case. Unplugged the ice maker and removed it from the freezer. I installed the two mounting screws then tried to plug the electrical connection back in but had to use the adaptor cord furnished in the kit. The cord was a little long but I tucked it in and mounted the ice maker. Turned it on then turned the refrigerator and water back on and in a few hours had ice! Very easy to do!

Frig and freezer were defrosting and refreezing other than normal. Home warranty contractor told me ice maker was faulty. Purchased new ice maker. Unplugged frig, loosened 2 screws with nut driver. unplugged old ice maker, lifted old ice maker out. Took old fill cup off old unit and put on new unit since new fill cup was a different size. Swapped ice maker insert from old to new unit. Plugged in new ice maker, slid over the 2 screws, tightened, and plugged in frig power. New ice maker works fine but still have defrosting and refreezing problem. Figure old ice maker probably works just fine. New contractor still trying to solve problem. Have had problems with this GE Monagram keeping proper temps since it was new in 2005, don't recommend it.

My husband did the repair, and even though our refrigerator is roughly 20+ years old, he was able to adapt it to work in all the right spots and we now have ice cubes! I'm very happy we did not have to spend $2000 on a comparable refrigerator.

The refrigirator light would not come on.
