Ice maker ot making ice

  • Customer: Barry from Phoenix, AZ

First I replaced the double valve because the ice maker was not filling with water. It still did not work. Then I replaced the ice maker itself. This worked and was relatively easy to replace. I had to use the water fill "slide" from the old ice maker. The new one was too narrow and it leaked water into the freezer.

Switch failed on which kept the refrigerator warm due to heat generatered by light bulbs.

While the switch did last for 9 years, the design is poor due to the failure mode. The failure should be to fail off or not able to turn on the lights which would be inconvenient but would not warm the refrigerator contents. Arcing at the contacts eventually caused the switch to "weld" closed. It is not obvious that this is occurring so it took some time to recognize why the temp inside the ref was high while the freezer was OK. Replacing the switch was easy once it was recognized as the problem. All that was required to replace the switch was to remove the screws holding a fiber cover and then pulling off the aluminum cap which covered the switches. Unplug the switch an squeeze the keeper on the switch to release it and pull down. Pop the replacement switch in place and plug the wires harness back in. All in all it took much less time to replace than it has to write this up. T Pope

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!

bucket drive shaft disengaged from motor drive

  • Customer: Paul from Ashton, MD
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 10 of 16 people found this instruction helpful
This is a 25 year old unit. The ice bucket had warped over time causing the face plate to move forward of its ideal position pulling the entire assembly out of the drive. Removed dispensing unit face assembly. Removed drive shaft assembly. Replaced all washers. Reversed old broken drive cup. Married old drive cup to new drive cup...lining up drive slots. Drilled 6 ea. 3mm holes evenly spaced around circumference into the face of the old drive cup. Fastened drive cups together in vice and with C clamp...then using phillips head screws installed 3 ea. from opposing entry points on each side of this homemade shaft extender. This "mechanism" increased the effective length of the dispensing shaft assembly allowing for a proper fit of the drive shaft to the motor drive connection. Unit now works perfectly. Total cost @ $40.00 and two hours work which would have taken less than one hour if I had remembered to install the ice bucket seal the first time. New ice bucket would have cost @ $185.00. Home warranty does not cover ice makers or any of the associated parts. DIY...it isn't that difficult.

The existing light switch was very hard to remove. I ended up having to grab it with a pair of pliers and pull it out. Once it was out, it was very easy to put in the replacement and it seems to be working fine.

Fan had quit; needed replacement.

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The fan was the correct part. It arrived one day after my well trained son-in-law had left for Texas. I had to install the motor myself. He had trained me well; it was not hard. the most difficult was getting the two tabs on the fan housing to fit back into the frame of the refrigerator where they belonged. Thanks. the part & delivery were overpriced, but I needed seed and convenience. Thanks for getting it right the first time.

This is a built-in unit. Remove the external bezel at the top of the unit. Reach through the unit and unplug the frig. On the compressor unit, you'll see a vertical metal panel. Remove the metal panel and the timer is right behind it. Remove one wire at a time and switch it to the new timer. Remove timer and replace with new one.

Just an added comment, GE Service wanted to put an "ice kit" into my unit. The full repairs would have cost $1,000. While I described how to replace the defrost timer, the problem was the tray heater. But that's another story.
