  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Your Video really made it easy, showing the actual replacment of the part. However I did have one problem, which was I could not unplug the panel just by pulling on the plugs. A locking catch is on each plug so I just moved the panel out of the way.

Googled how to replace the door seal, ordered parts and replaced the door seal flapper. The video on partselect was not correct for this GE model. However a simple diagran showed you simply remove the control panel directly (pops off) to provide access to the panel. Remove the 4 screws holding the panel, replace the door seal, and reassemble.

Ice dispenser door sticks open and water dripping into ice bin.

Disassembled the ice dispenser which became difficult because of very rusted screw heads. After I got dispenser apart, I had to go to a local hardware store to try to find replacement screws. Apparently, appliance screws are specialty items and I had to purchase the screws that most closely matched. I also had to purchase a ice dispenser door solenoid locally since I already had the dispenser all apart and I wanted to complete this job. The solenoid was very rusted as well and not functioning properly. It also took awhile to clean the rust stains off of the dispenser parts. If screws could be purchased along with the new parts that would have been very helpful and stainless screws would end the rusting screw heads issue but not the rusting door solenoid. All good at the end of the day with the sticking dispenser door repaired. Later, I replaced the dual water valve assembly because water was dripping on the ice maker components causing the ice maker to quit working and water was dripping into the bin as well. Replaced valve and that went well but, I still have water dripping on to the ice maker components. I will give it a couple of days to see if it stops and if it does not I will contact PartSelect.com.

CHATTER IN WATER LINE/WATER DISPENSER INOP AFTER REPLACING FILTER

  • Customer: Jason from Virginia Beach VA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Socket set, Wrench set, Wrench(Adjustable)

First, the problem IS NOT the Double Outlet Water Valve if your water dispenser begins to chatter and stop dispensing water - although the valve is a common failure. Replacing the Top Filter Mount was a straight forward repair: 1. turn off the water 2. disconnect the two water lines 3. unscrew the small screws covering the exit port (exterior, top, back, left of unit) 4. remove the filter cover (squeeze the left side in and pull on right side) 5. remove the filter 6. unscrew the two screws holding the mount in place 7. remove the filter by pulling the tubing (two water lines disconnected earlier) through 8. install new mount in reverse order. NOTE: THE TOP FILTER HOUSING MOUNT COMES WITH A BYPASS FILTER...don't add another to the cart

Low water output & Vibration at Filter

  • Customer: Ray from Sarasota FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Removed plate on back top of fridge, removed filter and cover then removed 2 screws inside, removed cover at bottom of fridge removed water line going into solenoid, removed water intake line from wall and pulled filter assembly out of fridge. Install just did reverse one note there is a caulk around the lines in the back of the fridge peel that out and save it and once hoses are back in place press the caulk back into place around the hoses. DOUBLE check the part you order I mistakenly ordered the one with a male end on the intake line and needed a female end was easy fix with a compression fitting though. Apparently sediment accumulates in the assembly on the intake side so it will not give the filter enough water to distribute and there is NO way to clean it out.

Ice accumulation inside the ice dispenser.

I watched the Utube video, repeated the process at home while awaiting the part, and installed the flapper door in about 15 minutes after it arrived--piece of cake. The hardest part was removing the escutcheon plate on the front of the freezer door. I figured out I could slide a putty knife under it and the rest of the project was completed in no time at all.

Looked at the instructional video and read previous customer comments. Didn't have to dissassemble rear of freezer door. Access through the front once trim ring and circuit board removed. Could not have done it with out the video/and or previous customer comments. Part was shipped and received immediately. Repairs complete! No more frost developing and plugging ice chute! I especially appreciate the customer comments on how to complete this repair!

I followed the video instructions to the letter and it was very easy and a total success. I believe I would have had problems but for thr video demonstration which was very clear and straight forward in a simple manner. Thanks for the prompt delivery of the part and the help installing it.

The flapper on the ice chute was curled up and not creating a good seat, so the chute kept clogging up with frozen condensation, especially during the humid summer months. The online video made it so easy to replace the part myself. I was able to fix the problem in under 15 minutes and at a fraction of the price!

The last coil on the end of my auger had broke off and the ice tray would not feed ice out of the box.

The ice maker tray was removed and the e-clip was removed from the end of the auger shaft,I then released the snap clip retainers and removed al the screws to romove the end of the Ice crusher section on the box.(It is a good idea to run this whole unit under hot water as the plastic could crack if to much force is applied during dissasembly. Plastic can be brittle when very cold). The shaft (auger)was extracted and the plastic retainer nut removed with a channel lock plier. Careful as it has a left hand thread. I was then able to remove the crusher blades and bushings from the end of the auger shaft and reassembled the parts on the new shaft. Refer to the parts catolog blowup view page on the website for proper installation of these parts if you get them mixed up. It is of great help. I then reassembled the auger back into the box and reassembled the other parts and screws to finish assembly. Popped it back into the frezzer and it works perfect. Tools required were nothing more than a thick kitchen towel to hold the Auger down and a flathead screwdriver for the e-clip retainer. A channel lock plier to take of the end nut as it has no flats for a wrench and a phillips screw driver for a couple of screws. Total time was about 20 minutes. I probably saved about $100.00 in doing this myself. Thanks again to PartSelect for getting my paet to me in a couple days.

REPAIR IS FAIRLY SIMPLE YOU DO NEED TO KNOW THAT NUT AT END OF AUGER IS LEFT HAND THREAD AND ICE CRUSHER ASSEMBLY ONLY GOES TOGETHER ONE WAY. SO PAY ATTENTION SURING DISASSEMBLY

I attempted to remove the broken auger and gave up after failing to be able to remove the part. After watching the video and seeing how to use a putty knife to remove the auger assembly ,it was a piece of cake. I ordered the new part and got it the next day. I was amazed at the speed of delivery.
