h2o not flowing to ice maker

First I turned the water supply off to the fridge.Next, I let a little water out from the supply line & into a container in order to rule out a faulty line or valve. Since I was able to get water from that, I figured I had three possibilities left to work on. I already intended on replacing the water filter so other than replacing the entire icemaker I would order the water valve. I ended up spending approximately around $60 for both items but could have saved more $ if I had bought the water filter from you guys. I was familiar due to past experiences involving the water valve but I did read some of the experiences that was printed online and thought that was a plus and because of your self help guidance it enables an average Joe to repair an appliance without being sent to the poor house. Thank you immensely and Look forward to doing my part shopping on line & thru your company. Yours truly, Steve

Checked to make sure it wasn't a plumbing problem. Then made aide sure the filter wasn't plugged. Then went to Parts Direct's web site. According to their information, the most likely problem was the duel inlet water valve. I followed to video instructions provided on the web site...finished the job in less than 15 minutes...and solved the problem. I will certainly be using your service in the future!

Just like installation video said. One error I did not read first note that check to see if line was frozen, which it was. Nothing wrong with valve, but changed it anyways. Works great now. Thank for all the help. You all are great.

We watched the video on how to install the part. When the part arrived we were all set. The video was so informative that we knew exactly where to go to install and what tools to use. This was great and we have recommended this company to anyone who needs to do repair on their appliances without having to pay for a service call, parts and labor. It cost us approximately $42.00 which other wise would have been easily $200.00 for the GE repair person or another appliance repair person

Freezer fan was running and making noises. sound was like the fan was trying to turn on.

Remove everything from the freezer. Suggest buying new rack holders when replacing the fan. I would suggest people who are not mechanical savvy to put drops of different colored nail polish on the screws and sensors so the know where to put them back. The job was quick and saved money from having to have someone else repair it.

refrigerator not cooling

I removed cover above the light from the back of the freezer. I removed the fan and clipped the wire leads, after disconnecting the breaker to the fridge. I connected the wires with wire "union" from Radio Shack. Could have used wire nuts. I put the breaker on to check that it was running, then put the cover back on. However, to fix the build up of ice on the coils in the back of the freezer, I also replaced the thermisor and the heater coil after defrosting the coils with a hair dryer. Both were easy repairs and the fridge works fine.

Ice maker not making ice and leaking

  • Customer: Andy from Ft Pierce FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

I took off the front cover of the icemaker assembly and found that the gears were not meshing properly and therefore slipping. I removed the front panel and found that the white plastic cam unit under the large gear wheel had disengaged from the hole in the front plate which is why the gears were slipping. I refitted the cam and wheel and it worked fine but stopped again for the same reason the next day. As the plate appeared to be buckled somehow (not user repairable) and, as the unit was leaking and pooling water (which froze) in the collection unit, I decided to change the whole icemaker.

Ordered about 1300 on a Thursday, it arrived the next day at noon and was fitted straight away. As others have mentioned, the extension cable required to fit into my old fridge made it quite cumbersome however with a bit of juggling and persuasion, I got it to fit into the cut out corner of the ice container so it is completely out of the way. Job done in about 35 minutes, making ice in an hour.

The video on the GE site was great. Showed step by step instructions on how to remove the old ice maker and install the new one. Also helpful was the detail on the water chute which needed to be moved from the old ice make to the new one. Saved hundreds of dollars by not having to have a repairman do this work for me.

Took out one hex screw, disconnect electric couplings, pulled original ice maker out and found that the water supply line to the ice maker was frozen solid as well as the shute cup. Used hair dryer to thaw out the line and the cup reinstaled old ice maker and it worked fine. Did not have to use the new part at all at this time. Am keeping new part for future use.

Refirerator and freezer not holding temperature

  • Customer: Frans from Southport NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

I have very close clearance to a facing island counter, so I removed the door handles using a small allen wrench. I moved the unit out from the cabentry and removed the six or so screws holding on the cover plate for the main circuit board. I labeled the several pin connectors to the board, and used pliers to gently remove them from the old board. The instructions that came with the replacement board discussed cutting wires depending on my specific unit, but it was clear I did not need to do that. I replaced the circuit board and replaced the cover plate. For good measure I vacuumed the dust from the heat exchanger. The repair worked very well as the unit cooled down from a freezer/refigerator temp of 14/40 to -1/35 in a matter of a few hours.
