I followed the video provided by PartSelect, very helpful. I had to cut and splice 4 wires. The repair was successful. The replacement part was an exact duplicate of the original. I still notice the same sound but one tenth the volume. I hope the problem does not return. Many thanks to PartSelect for information to identify the problem and prompt shipping of the repair part.

Followed the video instructions with the help of a young man who worked on trailer hitches before and knew how to splice wires.Beware of splicing the wrong fan motor back into the assembly....that happened here and we had to start the splicing all over again with the correct fan motor.

unusual noise

My refrigerator was making a high pitched kind of howling noise. The PartSelect symptom that was closest was “unusual noise” and when I clicked that it said the evaporator fan motor fixes the symptom 32% of the time. Since my freezer fan speed sounded like it was constantly changing I went ahead and bought one which PartSelect delivered promptly. The installation video was great and although my freezer was not identical to the one in the video, the video was still very helpful. The only thing it didn’t say was how to tell if my freezer motor was the one with the thermistor although I suspect that they all are and that PartSelect is simply trying to save us money by showing us how to splice in a motor without a thermistor. Anyway, since I would have had to disassemble the freezer before buying the part to find out for sure, I just bought the one without the thermistor. This just meant I had to splice the new motor in, just like in the video. I think I would have preferred buying the motor with the thermistor even though it was more expensive. In the end my problem is solved so I’m happy. This is the third time that I’ve had to repair this GE refrigerator and PartSelect has been a valuable resource each time.

freezer cold fridge warm loud squeeling noise

i followed a video that was on your site, the video couldn't have been easier to follow it was step by step and very easy to follow, i replaced the evaporator fan motor and everything is working fine, i did notice that the evaporator coil was frozen pretty bad when i removed the back freezer panel i am going to check it again in a couple of weeks to make sure i don't have a defrosting problem as of now everything is fine i am hoping it was just the bad fan motor causing the coil to freeze up because of no air movement over the coil

Ice maker freezing up and not dispensing cubes

I tried to follow the video...it looked easy enough to do and would have been if the trim came off! I had to go to the reviewer who said to undo the 3 springs under the keypad (found on the white part behind the touchpad). I just took an eyeglass screwdriver and pushed up...it was easy to follow the solenoid installation video from there! If I can do it...anyone can! I'm a 65year old female.

The first thing I did before starting the repair was watch the 2 videos. I followed the directions step by step and within an hour I had a functioning ice maker again. I had searched all over the web and the other sites were of no help. Your site really made it easy to figure out the problem and order the right parts. I now have a problem with my dishwasher so I will be back on your site soon. Thanks!

Watched the video, did exactly as it showed.

Freezer kept "icing up" because flapper door would not close.

  • Customer: Anthony from Mount Vernon IN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Video and instructions were very thorough, but on my paticular freezer, the inside door shelves had to be removed (30 screws) to get to the face place to release the door controls. Newer models can be accessed from the front. After removing front cover, repairs were very simple. Found that the solenoid was "rusted" and would not function. Easy replacement. Order new flapper, but was not needed (have a spare now...haha). When putting back together, the door did not seal at top...had to adjust how I tightened screws (pattern - top to bottom) to keep door from "warping". Did not think that the small amount of torque on the screws could "warp" a door so easily. After re-torqueing the screws, moved the top hinge just a little and door again sealed correctly. Will keep this site "bookmarked" for all my future appliance needs. Never had customer service so thorough. Amazing that I order about 5:00 pm on a Thursday and parts were at my door just after lunch on Friday...amazing service. Thanks for the instructions, video and CS.

The Ice ejector flap was hanging

  • Customer: Frank from Tallahassee FL
  • Difficulty: Easy

The ice maker was frosting up and the flap was sticking open. Only one negative comment! The Parts Diagram did not show how to remove the exterior trim plate to get to the parts. Once I figured that out, it was an easy installation and the ice maker ejects the ice properly and the flap closes properly. I could do the install in 20 minutes next time. Thanks for your help. Frank
