Food compartment not cooling, freezer working well.

Fantastic!
Sent in a brief description of problem and model number. Reply and description of other customers experiences guided us to the exact problem.
We ordered the part on Friday and it was here on Tuesday.
I prepared the freezer compartment for the removal of the old motor and on Sunday husband installed new Evaporator Fan Motor.

It works and is cooling like it did when it was new.

This has been a great experience as all repairmen wanted at least 60.00 to just come out and determine what the problem was. I can only imagine what the final bill would have been.

This was easy and inexpensive.

Thanks for all the help.

Water was leaking from the filter area when in-door water dispenser used

  • Customer: Todd from Gotha FL

Silly me. It couldn't possibly be the filter because it's worked for the last 9 months with no problems. Decided to replace the water filter base first. Repair was easy. I saw someone had trouble removing tubes from old base and I gave it a couple of tries to no avail so decided to cut the lines instead. Made it even easier. After repair, water continued to leak. So, replaced the filter itself and voila - leak fixed. Make sure you check the filter first. My mistake turned a $40 - 10 second repair into a $100 - 20 minute repair. Good Luck!

Ice maker did not produce ice.

The repair was easy. The problem was the lack of explanation. This may help other customers. I was told by the virtual trouble shooting system that about 30% of the cure was to replace the water filter and 70% was to replace the water valve. I did both and still had the problem. People need to be told why they have to replace the water valve. The reason is this. The valve has a very small leak in it that lets water continue to flow into the freezer compartment drop by drop. Eventually, this freezes and clogs the hole , so no water can pass and thus no ice can be made.In either your web site or another they stated that it may freeze up here, but there was no connection to the water valve.It seemed like it was another topic. Its very hard to see the frozen area, unless you remove it from the freezer area. I wish I was TOLD TO DO THIS, after i replaced the valve It would have saved me a repair bill. I hope this helps others.
Take care-Bill

Replaced an evaporator motor which had previouly been put in to replace original with an alternative which changed the original electrical connectors. Had to replace those replacements witn originals which extended the changeover.
Now works like the original and very quiet because your motor fit in the original rubber bushings. The alternative motor was put in by the Frigidaire repair man and at considerable expense because the warrenty date had been exceeded by one month.

Remove Phillips head screw holding top hinge cover, remove cover.

Remove top hinge bolts, making sure not to let the door fall.

Lift door off of bottom hinge.

Dig-out broken bearing.

Install new bearing.

**Removing the broken bearing piece turned-out to be the most time consuming part of the job. Incredibly easy fix.
