First, the problem IS NOT the Double Outlet Water Valve if your water dispenser begins to chatter and stop dispensing water - although the valve is a common failure. Replacing the Top Filter Mount was a straight forward repair: 1. turn off the water 2. disconnect the two water lines 3. unscrew the small screws covering the exit port (exterior, top, back, left of unit) 4. remove the filter cover (squeeze the left side in and pull on right side) 5. remove the filter 6. unscrew the two screws holding the mount in place 7. remove the filter by pulling the tubing (two water lines disconnected earlier) through 8. install new mount in reverse order. NOTE: THE TOP FILTER HOUSING MOUNT COMES WITH A BYPASS FILTER...don't add another to the cart

water flow at door was very very slow

normally low water flow would indicate filter change. however i changed filter two months ago. using the wonderful information available on this website, figured i'd try changing the water filter head with tubing, as it seemed that water flow w/o filter, although substantially better than with filter, might be low. unfortunately changing water filter head didn't solve problem. it was the bloody filter after all! however the repair went well, the correct part arrived in a timely fashion, and over the course of time i think that the spring mechanism inside the filter head had weakened and was not making as solid as contact as when new. so it was i feel a worthwhile repair as water flow is now awesome with new filter in place. thanks guys for your great website. you are making the world a better place!

I started at the compressor and replaced the overload and the Ptcr first and that did not make the compressor start running again, so I replaced the capasitor and it still did not start, so I bit the bulett and replaced the Main Control Board and that is what I should have checked first, when I removed the old one I found a little burnt spot on the back that I could not see from the front. The new one did not look exactly like the old one, it had two more wire terminals than the old one, but just leave them blank and everything will work just fine!

I started removing the switch by prying on the right side with a screwdriver, when it emerged enough I used pliers to finish removing it. I then unpluged rhe wires from the bad switch and pluged them on the new switch and "poped" it into the hole.

Based on the site, I figured the problem was the electronics board or the defrost sensor. After some multimeter work, I was pretty sure that it was the board; however, the defrost sensor was inexpensive so I bought both. I watched the videos, and the work was pretty much the way it was described. No problems or unforeseen issues.
