I ordered 3 temperature Sensors Part#PS304103 and viewed the video. Got there, opened the frig. and it looked totally different and no place in any part of this frig. that took these sensors as viewed on the video. Totally baffled why these parts were listed for this frig. there was no place in this frig that would access for these parts. Serial # was HR443071.Maybe this model is out of date for these parts. Trying to find someone who can repair it. Any ideas???Purchased this GE in 2008. Model #is GSS25WSTFSS Thanks, for your help. JIM

1. Removed and tested defrost heater, tests good. 2. Reinstalled defrost heater. 3. Removed and tested defrost over-temperature sensor, tests good. 4.

Removed the control printed circuit board and checked for blown fuse's, fuse's are all good. 6. Removed the defrost relay from the printed circuit board using soldering iron, bench tested the relay, it is good. 7. Soldered defrost relay back onto the circuit board, and reinstalled control board. 8. Removed and bench tested evaporator thermistor, the resistance is out of specification, ordered new thermister. 9. Installed new thermistor using soldering iron, dielectric silicone grease, and heat-shrink tubing. 10. Re-assembled refrigerator. 11. Installed temperature monitoring and recording instrumentation for 72 hour test. The defrost cycle is running correctly with a defrost termination temperature of around 90 deg-f. The defrost cycle ran twice while running the 72 hour test. 11. Removed test instrumentation and Put the unit back into service, The thermistor was the culprit. I bought the right part on the first shot, nice.

I reached into the refrigerator top shelf for the bottle of milk and my arm caught on the Dairy Door and pulled it from the door and it fell to the floor and shattered. Thanks to you I was able to order another. After couple of weeks, I asked my wife, Rita if we received the Dairy Door. She said, "Oh yes. I installed it already." Boy was I surprised. Rita doesn't do installations!!!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Broke ice maker supply tube while moving fridge.

Used nut driver to remove two screws at top of tube, and the three screws holding composite cover on back of fridge. Pulled out the upper portion of tube, pulled up on fitting and removed lower portion of tube. Put upper spout portion of new supply tube into position, replaced two screws, pushed lower portion of tube into locking fitting on supply valve solenoid. Replaced composite cover with three screws, and was done. Entire job took less than 5 minutes. It took longer for me to find my nut driver set, than it took to do the repair. I ordered the part online, and it was delivered to my door in a lightning fast 36 hours. Hopefully I won't ever need any more appliance parts, but with your easy to navigate website, fast shipping, and fair prices, you have won me over as a customer. I will refer you to friends because of your high speed, low drag, zero defects, excellent service. Thank you very much. Rich.

Refrigerator compressor would not start

After on two occessions from a refrigeration man who did not fix it I decided to work on it myself. Knowing it was not the overload relay or capacitor I changed the temperature control board but without success, next I took the main control biard, located on the back lower left off for inspection and found that there was a contact terminal on one of the relays melted, after resouldering contact I reinstaled the board and then plug back my refrigerator into the outlet and there it goes like brand new. It was quite easy and quick to do because the board has precisely matching plug-in-terminal wiring harness, for diconnect and reconnect, very smart way. To remove cover for access, take board off, fix and replace, it took me aproxmately fifteen minuites, only using a quarter inch stud driver. Great way. So thrust yourself and save some $Bucks.

Icemaker stopped and leaking

Repair was fairly straight forward once I diagnosed what the problem was by reading other peoples problems and repairs on here. I pulled the fridge out & disconnected the power. I shut off the water supply and disconnected it. I removed the back panel and unscrewed the bracket holding the water valve in place then disconnected the electrical connectors from the solenoids that control the valves. At this point I went on a cleaning binge to remove all dust and crud I could get into my vacuum, which is why it took me longer than others. I know it is important to keep the machinery clean so that it can run efficiently so I did it. At this point I used the hairdryer to melt the frozen inlet to the icemaker from the back of the freezer just enough so I could pull it out and remove the frozen blockage. Reinserted the inlet ensuring it was fully reseated in the opening with the foam seal snugly around it. I reinserted the tubes in their respective valve outlets (each is unique size so they cannot be done wrong), next I reassembled the new solenoid valve by reattaching the electrical connectors (mine are keyed which makes it stupid proof) then screwing its bracket back in place. Next I reconnected the water and plugged in the fridge to check for leaks. No leaks (WHEW!!) replace backplate and put fridge back in cubby. Test water dispenser- GOOD. Turn icemaker back on in "quick ice" mode and wait ~40-45 min first batch is GOOD. 5 hours later with about 6-7 batches of ice, all is well- no leaks everything is functional and I am happy.

fridge was stored in garage without heat in winter & froze up,should have drained all water.

Turns out replacing the part was not needed. Still did not work. Opened freezer and hit inside of door with hairdryer to thaw out frozen water line. Wish I would have done that first. Water works fine now.

No water flow to ice maker

Changing the water solinoid was quick and easy but not the problem! After still not getting water to the ice maker,I took the ice maker itself out of the freezer.I could hear something small rattling arround inside the plastic housing.As I took it apart I found a tiny white piece of plastic inside the size of grain of rice.It had broken off the end of an arm that rides on a cam of the electric timer.Without that little plastic tit riding on the cam,it make the maker out of sink! I fixed it by drilling a .080 hole in the spot the piece had broken off.Then I took apart an old broken fishing reel for a screw to use in place of the broken off piece.I re-installed everything and the ice maker has been working as good as new and will hopefully out live the fridge.My solinoid is now a good spare part!!
