Ice maker leaking

  • Customer: Don from Horseshoe Bay TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Quite easy. Turn off water supply and turn off ice maker at switch inside freezer. Unscrew the old unit, separate the electrical connection, and pull it out. New unit comes with parts that do not fit my refrigerator, so visually examine the new and old units, reuse any needed parts from the old unit, such as plastic water ramp. Reconnect the electrical connector, and screw it back in. Turn water supply back on and then turn ice maker back on at switch inside freezer. Discard unused parts. Wait up to 24 hours for new ice cubes to be made.

I screwed the replacent bracket back in on the right side of the refridgerater and slid the draw back in.It was easy and took about 10 minutes with a philips Screwdriver.I did replace the short screws with longer ones that made it much easier.By ordering the part from Part Select & putting the bracket myself I probably saved $100.If I need any additional parts I will definately order from Part Select again .The price was right and they delivered it promptly. Thank You Gil

Found refrig. not working properly. removed back cover to access compressor and condenser fan motor. Fan motor turning very slowly if at all. Compressor tripping thermal overload. Blew out condenser coil of all dust. Figured it was either a circuit board or cond. fan motor. Went online to Parts Direct and read through other blogs of issues with this appliance. I ordered both the fan motor and circuit board. Replaced circuit board first. started it up and fan ran great. Compressor however kept tripping overload. All that overheating stressed that start relay so I disassembled and removed relay and thermal overload. Sure enough, relay was all broken up inside. I put a 3 in 1 hard start kit on it from a local supply house and it now runs great. I will order the new o/l and relay so I can remove hard start kit.

The plastic guard that keeps the crushed ice from plashing back into the icecube tray broke I ordered the part and I received the part a lot sooner than I expected , I pulled the ice maker cube container out and removed the screws in the front of the container then unsnapped the front plastic that has the brand name on it, then I removed the large "E-Clip" and took the auger out and removed the clear broken plastic and replaced it with the new part and reinstalled same as I took it apart, All is workinbg fine now...Cheers, Roger

I ordered 3 temperature Sensors Part#PS304103 and viewed the video. Got there, opened the frig. and it looked totally different and no place in any part of this frig. that took these sensors as viewed on the video. Totally baffled why these parts were listed for this frig. there was no place in this frig that would access for these parts. Serial # was HR443071.Maybe this model is out of date for these parts. Trying to find someone who can repair it. Any ideas???Purchased this GE in 2008. Model #is GSS25WSTFSS Thanks, for your help. JIM

Fridge was warming but freezer was cold

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I first thought of the board because it seems to be the most common problem but after a process of elimination I found it to be the evaporator fan which was relatively easy to disassemble and re-install. I am not a repair man of any sorts but spending $45 is much better that buying a new fridge. All is working well and my wife is happy.JG

I went to internet and reserched this site and put the model number in serch. Great site for instructions. I looked for the double valve and a union connector. Did not know what they looked like so I searched the detailed parts of the back of the ref. Looked at the video on how to install parts very easy. I ordered the parts. They came really fast within two days in the mail. The video told you what tools you would need to do the job. Pulled the ref out, set on the floor, undid the 6 or 7 screws from back panel and followed the instructions from video. The part itself had only 1 screw to remove. I'm 64 female and it was really easy and I now have water.
