After ordering the parts. I followed the directions shown in the video. After unplugging electric cord. My insides looked a bit different, but the approach was the same. Unscrewed the nuts holding the back panel in place,disconnected ground wire. Hand a mountain of ice covering the unit, melted it away using hair dryer. Found and replaced defrost themosat,then disassembled defrost heater bracket and noticed the bulb had blown. Installed the new unit in less than 5 minutes. Reassembled the panel, plugged in the fridge and in about 8 hours its was working better than before and all I could think about was that I did and how much money I saved. Wow

Fridge side not getting cold, coils icing over

Wasn't sure if my problem was the thermostat or defrost heater, so I just replaced both. 1) Unplug fridge. 2) Remove shelves, guides, and the back cover as needed to access the coils. 3) Defrost coils - a hairdryer works well. 4) Remove and replace heater assembly - it's just 2 screws at the bottom of the coil assembly. 5) Cut wires to the thermostat that is clipped to top of coils. 6) Connect new thermostat with wire nuts and wrap nuts with electrical tape. 7) Clip thermostat back onto coils. 8) Put it all back together. After I removed my heater assembly I took it apart and found that the heater element was broken and looked pretty burned out. Easy fix and a lot cheaper than paying for a service call.

I had already replaced the icemaker and solenoid valve and had not solved my problem. After I looked at the back wall gasket, it was obvious that the element was getting too hot. Installation was really simple- unplug refrigerator cord, remove frozen food and racks, remove light cover and back sheet metal by removing 4 screws, cut and splice wires to new parts. Reinstall.

Parts were perfect. Shipment great. It took a bit of time to get back to the Evaporator fan, so i basically had to take the entire freezer apart. Not a problem. The one issue i ran into was my unit had 2 white wires which connected to a silver bullet thing, that were not included in the wiring harness. Maybe I could have ordered that part (thinking out loud) I had to cut the old one apart, and adapt them into the new one, which had 2 holes to spare for this purpose. I guess i could have spliced every wire, but didn't. The freezer now SOUNDS LIKE A FREEZER. Thanks,

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I decided to replace motor and fan, having previously altered/trimmed the fan which stopped the howling but caused a vibration. Unplug from mains. Clear out two top shelves in freezer. Remove light cover. Remove two screws(1/4 driver)at top of steel panel in rear of compartment and let it drop. Remove two screws above light. Pry up section above light/fan housing to access two screws retaining the light/fan assembly, loosen screws sufficiently so that assembly can be lifted and removed. Disconnect wiring plug by pinching in the sides of the plug and pulling out. Pull fan off motor shaft. Remove two screws clamping motor. Cut cable tie and molded wiring grommet to free wiring. The existing light wires can be removed from the old plug by carefully cutting around the old plug to free the pins and then pushing the pins into the new plug. Reverse procedure to assemble.

Gentlemen,

Many thanks for the help in repairing my GE refrigerator. From the web site and videos, I determined the problem with the flapper on my ice maker was a bad solenoid. I ordered the part from you then followed the step by step instructions to install it. It made what seemed to be an intimidating job rather easy.

Thanks again,

Gary Schafer
