I turned the water off to the frig. Disconnected the two waterlines to the filter head. Removed the water filter from the head. Removed the filter head cover which exposed the two screws holding the head in place. I removed the head and then reversed the procedure to install the new filter head.

normally low water flow would indicate filter change. however i changed filter two months ago. using the wonderful information available on this website, figured i'd try changing the water filter head with tubing, as it seemed that water flow w/o filter, although substantially better than with filter, might be low. unfortunately changing water filter head didn't solve problem. it was the bloody filter after all! however the repair went well, the correct part arrived in a timely fashion, and over the course of time i think that the spring mechanism inside the filter head had weakened and was not making as solid as contact as when new. so it was i feel a worthwhile repair as water flow is now awesome with new filter in place. thanks guys for your great website. you are making the world a better place!

CHATTER IN WATER LINE/WATER DISPENSER INOP AFTER REPLACING FILTER

First, the problem IS NOT the Double Outlet Water Valve if your water dispenser begins to chatter and stop dispensing water - although the valve is a common failure. Replacing the Top Filter Mount was a straight forward repair: 1. turn off the water 2. disconnect the two water lines 3. unscrew the small screws covering the exit port (exterior, top, back, left of unit) 4. remove the filter cover (squeeze the left side in and pull on right side) 5. remove the filter 6. unscrew the two screws holding the mount in place 7. remove the filter by pulling the tubing (two water lines disconnected earlier) through 8. install new mount in reverse order. NOTE: THE TOP FILTER HOUSING MOUNT COMES WITH A BYPASS FILTER...don't add another to the cart

Removed plate on back top of fridge, removed filter and cover then removed 2 screws inside, removed cover at bottom of fridge removed water line going into solenoid, removed water intake line from wall and pulled filter assembly out of fridge. Install just did reverse one note there is a caulk around the lines in the back of the fridge peel that out and save it and once hoses are back in place press the caulk back into place around the hoses. DOUBLE check the part you order I mistakenly ordered the one with a male end on the intake line and needed a female end was easy fix with a compression fitting though. Apparently sediment accumulates in the assembly on the intake side so it will not give the filter enough water to distribute and there is NO way to clean it out.

I started at the compressor and replaced the overload and the Ptcr first and that did not make the compressor start running again, so I replaced the capasitor and it still did not start, so I bit the bulett and replaced the Main Control Board and that is what I should have checked first, when I removed the old one I found a little burnt spot on the back that I could not see from the front. The new one did not look exactly like the old one, it had two more wire terminals than the old one, but just leave them blank and everything will work just fine!

killed power-gently pried out old switch using two screw drivers-replaced faulty switch-and tested OK.

Ice dispnser worked intermitently. My diagnosis led me to the freezer door light switch. Switch operated the light but stopped the ice dispenser. After replacing the switch the dispenser operates every time now. problem solved.

First of all, you must watch the video on the partselect.com site. The video helps a lot. Then, you can start disconnecting the power cable; unscrew the cover of the main control board. Disconnected the connections from the old board. Unplug the board with a help of a small plier. Installed the new board, connect all connections back. Put the cover back. Connect back the power cable. Unit is running as a brand new.

The trouble with DIYers is that they don't have very much experience with and the benefit of several repairs on the same appliance. So they must rely on their mechanical abilities and the youtube help of Steve. So they must resort to eliminating the variables as their diagnostic approach. In my case I was unable to find the exact description of my problem, so I began with what seemed like the most likely and the least expensive replacement. So after I had replaced the water valve, the micro switch and the main board I finally found the problem was the water filter by ordering and installing a water bypass valve which I did not have readily available at the start.

I researched the issue on line and replaced the microswitch. I didn't test the part since it was so inexpensive and the whole process only took me about 15 minutes to complete. I didn't know "where" the microswitch was located until I watched your video, a very helpful tool. Thanks PartSelect, the part arrived 3 days after I ordered it.Mike in Spokane, WA
