just replaced with the new one

This was a side-by-side unit. The symptom was: ice in bottom of freezer; vent tube to evaporator tray blocked by ice; dispenser ice melting together; ice cream much too cold; and defrost and freezing cycle too long.

All food and drawers were removed from the freezer, including ice tray. The left side shelf brackets were removed to ease removal of the back panels which expose the the bi-metal defrost thermostat. Six screws to remove the large back panel, plus the shelf support rails needed to be loosened to remove the smaller upper panel.
The bi-metal thermostat is mechanically clipped to the upmost coil of the condenser. the two wires must be cut and wires for the new thermostat spliced in. The wires were tinned with solder to insure a good connection, then twisted and crimped with an automotive end connector. With the smaller 22.8 cu.ft. refrigerator a lot of the work will have to be performed with one hand. The hardest problem here is diagnosing the malfunction correctly in the beginning. I was impressed that the replacement part was received in two days ...

I went to the PartSelect online videos and watched this one: "Refrigerator Repair - Replacing the Door Closing Cam (GE Part# WR2X4901)," to assess whether or not this could be a do-it-yourself repair. Even though the subject of the video was demonstrated on a refridgerator model different from mine, it appeared similar enough for me to get the idea of how to accomplish the repair, so I used the PartSelect site to guide me to the parts needed to do it. The parts came in and I once again watched the video and then proceeded with the repair. The repair was very simple and easily accomplished - took a half hour total. If you watch the video referred to above, you'll see exactly the way I did it. My experience precisely mirrored that shown in the video. One hint: I did spend some time wondering if I should have emptied the refridgerator before starting the job, and decided not to. It was the wise choice as the job went so fast, removing all the food would have been a waste of time. The door was off maybe 20 minutes total, and that was only enough time to raise the temperature inside about 5 degrees, which was quickly recovered when I re-installed the door. I can't say enough good about the PartSelect site, for the superb guidance in parts selection, as well as the extremely helpful how-to videos. I probably would not have attempted the repair on my own if not for the help this site provided. Thank you very much for this valuable service.

Ice would not dispense through front of door. There was no sound when the lever was pushed either, however, the water dispenser next to it worked fine.

Remove drip tray, remove two screws under drip tray and remove trim piece around dispensers. The micro switch is located at top right corner; slide it off the small post that holds it in place. Remove wire from switch (be gentle so you don't break wire, mine was on pretty tight. My switch was clearly burned out (black on connections). Anyway, just click wire back on new switch and push back on the post that holds it in place. Put back trim, screws and drip tray. The whole thing took a few minutes....I am no repair man but there were two switches on the post next to one another, I imagine the other controls the water dispenser in the event it had the same problem? If I had removed the trim piece and looked before ordering the part I probably would have swapped them out to confirm the problem was definitely the switch...I assume you could do that because they appear identical but can't say for sure. However, all indicators pointed to the switch anyway. Part was inexpensive and Part Select got it right out to me.

Ice dispenser would not spin, shaft worn down

The hexagonal shaft had been worn down so that the edges no longer could be gripped by the teeth on the ice dispenser bucket. Remove the the two screws underneath the bucket. Use pliers (if needed) to pull out ht sold shaft. Slide in the new shaft, and twist until it drops into place. Replace the two screws and you're all set!
