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

Solenoid plunger rusted and did not reset when not energized so the dispenser flapper would stick open.

unplug, remove front selector button panel by gently pulling outward at bottom, unplus the 3 connectors on the back. Remove the 4 screws on the corners of the shoot/despenser structure. gently pull out the structure watching how the wires are routed. Unscrew the 3 solonoid screws hold the ice flap open and remove the solonoid/plunger set.

When the condensor fan motor started making those "Dying Mouse" noises I knew it was time to replace it. So I removed the fan motor and re-oiled it's lubricating packing, reinstalled it and promptly ordered a repacement moter online from PartSelect. I've ordered parts from them in the past with great results and rapid shipping. So now the "Dying Mouse" has been evicted and my wife is happy. And everyone should know, ( If Momma ain't happy, Then nobody's happy.) Thanks again PartSelect for your fast, reliable parts source with very reasonable prices.

Water still came out the front when pressed, but no ice. After removing the Ice container, & the top shelf I noted the icemake inlet was iced over. I turned off the icemaker, turned down the freezer temp, & allowed Ice to melt, but problem returned. I next removed the back bottom cover & cleaned the condenser coils, & drain pan; they were extremely dirty. Then I noticed the condensor fan was not on. After getting the nomenclature plate info off the condenser fan motor I left the back cover off, & put an external fan to blow on the coils as a temporaty fix until I could get the part & replace it. During that time the refrig functioned normally. 3 days later my condenser fan motor I ordered from Parts Select arrived & I installed it.

Fan and housing cannot be removed together.

On partselects video the gentleman removes the fan and housing in one piece. This is a great idea but does not work on this brand of ge. I removed the fan housing screw as instructed but left it in place and swiveled it enough to access the retaining screws with a socket driver. Over all swap of the fan was seamless and the video is a gem. Andy

It was simple just applied some common sense to trouble shoot and remove the motor from the housing in the back of the freezer. Then reverse the order when replacing. The part arrived in 1.5 days from when I placed the order. Joshua

followed the instructions included with part.

My particular model did not have any wire loom modifications (it tells you if you need to based upon your model number prefix)
