1. Removed and tested defrost heater, tests good. 2. Reinstalled defrost heater. 3. Removed and tested defrost over-temperature sensor, tests good. 4. Reinstalled over-temperature sensor using soldering iron, dielectric silicone grease, and heat-shrink tubing. 5. 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.

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.

Water line to outlet water dispenser was frozen half way up the inside of freezer door. I scotch taped a bunch of plastic grocery bags on the interior left water dispenser door.I closed door with bags attached to inside door. I waited fifteen minutes and water was flowing again! First take off plastic coupler at bottom of front of refrigerator. Push plasic cup dispenser back, if water comes out of plastic tube at bottom front of refrigerator, then water valves are ok (if making ice is ok too). if light comes on at dispenser switch is ok also.

water leak behind refrigerator

Identified very small stream of water shooting out of center of blue plastic housing where the icemaker/water dispenser hose connects to external water source. A flashlight up close made it possible to see the water stream, after removing the steel cover from the lower back of the refrigerator. You remove the black and white hoses by PRESSING in on the white plastic rings. I unplugged power before removing/reconnecting the 2 electrical connections with needle nose pliers. Replacing this thing stopped the leak, but I also had to change the circuit board to solve the icemaker water dispenser issues. I also replaced the vampire tap on the house supply line with a shut off valve so I could do this repair without shutting off the house water supply. I did have to shut it down to install the valve, but now I can shut off the refrigerator water supply when needed to replace the filter.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

just put it in

chunk of curved white plastic came out when my wife was getting crushed ice. The "snow" from the crushed ice over time builds up at the ice chute and distorts the plastic parts around the ice knives. No amount of conversation can get the person to check the chute.

Empty out all the ice. Check how all moving parts operate together and get a clear picture when you replace parts so you know how it is to look upon completion. Unscrew the four screws that hold the front housing together and make sure you remember where you placed them. Three are the same and one is stainless steel at the ice container deflector. Replace the parts and attempt to put it together the first time. The ice auger had to be disconnected with a "C" washer to lock it in place along with a thin washer bearing. Take it apart two or three times to make sure the auger works before going to the next step. After the third or fourth evolution, it was like field stripping your M-1 rifle in boot camp it went so smoothly. It was really simple to do this job, just a little tedious. Now my wife can have crushed ice again and in a few months, some of the same plastic parts may break again because of the "snow" build-up. I know where I can find the parts, or maybe just buy another refrigerator. Thank you for seeing how the repair went. Jim
