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.

my ice maker had stopped producing ice.

I received my new ice maker and got a nut driver and went to the freezer and removed my old ice maker . Then I noticed a problem. The cord on my old ice maker did not have a plug in the middle, my wires seemed to go through the wall of the freezer. I was afraid I would damage it if I tried to pull the wires from the wall, so I called customer service . She said I apparently ordered the wrong part. I had order a $70 unit and she said I needed the $114 kit. I would have to return the unit and order the kit. But she told me to look at the kit description and watch the repair video to see if that would help to see if I thought I could do it myself or get a service person. After looking at the parts and video I realized that the kit would be sending me the exact same unit and a couple of different type wire cords. I decided that all I needed to do was use the wire harness from my freezer and remove the new wire harness from the new ice maker unit. Of course I cut off the power to the refrigerator before pulling the plugs.I just had to loosen the two upper screws and remove the bottom screws, pull out the old unit, unplug the wire harness from the ice maker and removed the new wire harness from the new unit. Then I plugged the old wire into the new unit, slipped the unit back into position being certain that the water tube was in the proper position, tightened the upper screws, replaced the lower screw. I turned the power back on and waited. In a while I had ice again.

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.

The Ice Bin Auger Drum shatered away from the shaft.

  • Customer: Robert from Omaha NE

The reason it took me longer than what should have been a 15 minute repair is due to the fact that I could not figure out how the shaft came apart. I found an instructional video on Parts Select website that showed me that the shaft was held together by a reverse treaded, round nylon nut on the very front of the shaft. Just use a pair of pliers to grasp the nut and rotate it clockwise, after that you just need to lay the parts out in order as they come off the shaft so you can put it back together again.

This was a very easy repair and only took about 20 minutes. Unfortunately, after reordering, and installing the second motor, the intermittent noise is still there. Other than the occasional buzzing noise, that sounds like it is coming from the evaporator fan area, the refrigerator runs fine.

Simply follow the video instructions. Involves the removal of nine screws. to remove the old plastic sleeve cut the tube near the old thermostat and it slides of easily. Apply dish or hand washing soup to the new tube when putting the plastic sleeve onto the new probe. The hardest part is getting the end of the probe coiled to the right shape. Hey,` if I can do it with a broken collar bone, anybody should be able to do it.
