I can't tell you how luck I feel after finding your website I ordered the temperature sensor after watching one of your videos on-line and the repair went just as on the video. I pulled the "bad" sensor out, and replaced it with the new one. Keep in mind that this is the first time I ever touch an appliance, needless to say I'm feeling pretty good about that! All in all it took me about 20 minutes to complete my repair and it now has been about 4 days and the refrigerator is working like new again!

My fridge starting getting warm inside so I took the back panel of the freezer off and seen the coils being completely frozen. I thawed it with hair dryer and took out both the heater element and thermostat off and performed an ohm test with multimeter. Heater seeme good with 23 ohm resistance but thermostat had no current flow through it. After replacing the thermostat the fridge works like new. I replaced the heater as well even though it seemed okay for peace of mind.

We tried to figure it out oursleves first. Got stuck at how to get the blades off the auger. So, we looked up the repair online. We followed the video and then it was pretty easy.

I found out that the tabs that hold the ext. had broken or worn off. I decided to pull the front panel off and remove the filler spout assy. I just glued the new funnel ext. onto the funnel, and caulker the panel,and hopefully I will never need to replace it again. It will be a little more difficult to get it off now. Also, the instructions were so small I had to read it with a magnifying glass.

I have a GE Profile French door refrig. It's only about 4 yrs old and the defroster stopped working. I read the other repair stories and was able to narrow it down to either the temp sensor, defrost timer, or main board. The refrig section was up to about 47 degrees and freezer was around 25. I could tell it was trying to cool but couldn't. So I tried the temp sensor first. I cut and spliced the new sensor on the outlet of the Evap. Coil and it took about 15 mins. Turned refrig back on and waited. The coil started to ice over after about 5 hrs I left the back panel off so I could see if and when then heater kicked on. After about 8 hrs I looked in and saw a faint glow and water trickling down and running out the drain. Turned out the sensor was bad and wasn't telling the main board it needed to defrost. I would try the sensor if you are having the same issues before spending a lot of money on the main board, defrost heater and or timer.

Side by side refrigerator side was not cooling, And freezer was not cold enough to keep ice from melting.

Broken drawer railings

Don't know why they broke in the first place but I suspect that the door was closed with the draw not fully closed. Very simple repair involving 4 Philips head screws (not included) Parts clearly marked left and right. Wise to leave broken ones in position for orientation reference before beginning. A digital photo works wonders as well.
