Refrigerator Fresh Food condenser iced-up. Frozen side OK

  • Customer: Dan from Decatur GA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Had to remove all the covers and fans to expose the condenser, which was difficult as the parts were frozen to it. The styrofoam covering the condenser made it almost impossible to defrost it. Therefore, I ripped the styrofoam off to expose the condenser. Was not really difficult to fix the styrofoam cover using metal tape. Replaced temperature sensor in aluminum block, and used butyl sealant to secure. Had to also re-install parts of ice-ball kit that were not well covered. Lots of parts to keep track of, but anyone could do it.

Turned the water off to the refrigerator. Pulled the refrigerator away from the wall opening. Removed the back lower panel. Removed the lines to the water valve. Removed the electrical connections. Installed the water lines on the new valve and verified they would not pull out of the push in connections. Installed the electrical connections. Turned the water on and checked for leaks and proper operation. Reinstalled the back panel and positioned the refrigerator in it's proper position.

the old dual inlet water valve was 2 years old and stop despense water. this is not the fist time that i changed the valve so i know when the frigerator is not despense water it s time to change the valve. and its simple shut off water supple to frigertor, pull the electrical plug. remove all the screws from back of back panel, the dual inlet valve is located at the bottom left side remove the inlet water supple line, unscrew the bolt holding the valve in place disconnect the two electrical connection from valve and remove the two water lines(one black and the other white) these two water lines have a push in fitting just push in each line at same time hold in the white collar while pull out the water line. with the new valve install both water lines by pushing them in the black line is larger in diameter that goes into the larger valve connector and the white goes into the smaller diameter connector. then connect to electrical connector these can not be mixed up because the red excepts the larger terminals and the white connects to the smaller connectors. place the dual inlet into a manufacture whole and bolt it back onto the frame of frigertor, connect to water line onto the valve, turn on water supply, check for water leaks. if all looks ok replace back panel, plug in electrical cord. your ready to go.

I called Parts Express, and explained my problem. The representative, She asked if I was getting water in the tray, and I was not. She said that if I wasn't getting water there, then my problem was probably the Dual Inlet Water Valve. I poured some water directly into the tray, and the ice maker made a tray of ice, and dumped it in less than an hour. So, I then ordered the Dual inlet water Valve. My ice maker is working perfect, and I am getting better water pressure from my water dispenser as well. Thank you for your assistance.

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.

Found the problem, seen what it was looked up the part, watched the video was real easy to fixed so did it myself. If I would of called a repair man it would of been around $200.00 for everything I did it for the price of the part.

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

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!

Water dispenser was very slow, but Ice maker works.

Part shipped in 2 days after requesting basic mail. Video was exremely accurate, no surprises. Valve replacement DID NOT fix my problem, however. I had to twist the water filter plug on and off a few times to release better pressure. My issue appeared to be with filter mount shut off. Still cheaper than a repair man!
