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.

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

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!

1.Unplug and turn off water supply to refrigerator. 2.Remove several screws from back panel and remove panel 3. Remove water supply line from valve. 4. Remove screw holding valve on using 1/4" nut driver or socket. 5.Remove the 2 electrical plugs and 2 water lines from valve. 6.reinstall in reverse order. This is a 5 minute job at best. Good Luck! I had my fridge in storage for several years and when it froze it cracked the storage tank PS783769 I replaced it first and found valve was leaking after tank was replaced.

Unplugged unit and removed vented cover over compressor section. The run capacitor is a simple fix 1 Phillips head screw and 2 spade wire connectors. For the temperature sensor I had to remove all drawers and the ice maker to remove the back cover to expose the condenser. Put a bowl at the drain stem in the rear of the unit and used a heat gun to defrost the coils on the condenser. Cut the wire about 3" from the sensor end . cut about the same off the new sensor stripped the wires put shrink wrap on each wire, attached butt connecors . heat gun for the shrink wrap and reassembled everything. Simple job that took about a half hour to do both. I will monitor the fridge for a couple of weeks to see if I need to change the control board.

Both the fridge aqnd freezer would not get cold.

Refrigerator and freezer drawer would not maintain set temperature

Condenser fan motor was running slow. This was not a problem included in your list of possible problems. I thought that maybe the capacitor was bad but have no way to check it. So I ordered one. when I received it, I installed it. That was not the problem. So I ordered a fan motor and installed it. That was not the problem. So finally I ordered a control board and installed it. That solved the problem. So maybe you should put "cond.fan motor runs slow" in your list of possible faults and what causes that problem. Capacitor was easy to install, simply remove the cover plate, flip off retaining wire, unplug the capacitor and replace. Fan motor was a bit more difficult. It must be removed from mount after fan scroll is removed. Remove one screw that holds scroll, bend the top down and remove. Then pull hard on fan blade to remove it. It must be installed on new motor. Two screws in frame mount can be removed with some effort if you have a 1/4" drive ratchet with a Phillips screwdriver bit. Then pull frame open and install new motor. Push fan blade on new motor shaft hard. Replacing control board was easy. I used a pair of long nose pliers with 90 degree bend to get mounting pins closed to pull board off.

Starter/overload assembly and run capacitor were bad
