normally low water flow would indicate filter change. however i changed filter two months ago. using the wonderful information available on this website, figured i'd try changing the water filter head with tubing, as it seemed that water flow w/o filter, although substantially better than with filter, might be low. unfortunately changing water filter head didn't solve problem. it was the bloody filter after all! however the repair went well, the correct part arrived in a timely fashion, and over the course of time i think that the spring mechanism inside the filter head had weakened and was not making as solid as contact as when new. so it was i feel a worthwhile repair as water flow is now awesome with new filter in place. thanks guys for your great website. you are making the world a better place!

The trouble with DIYers is that they don't have very much experience with and the benefit of several repairs on the same appliance. So they must rely on their mechanical abilities and the youtube help of Steve. So they must resort to eliminating the variables as their diagnostic approach. In my case I was unable to find the exact description of my problem, so I began with what seemed like the most likely and the least expensive replacement. So after I had replaced the water valve, the micro switch and the main board I finally found the problem was the water filter by ordering and installing a water bypass valve which I did not have readily available at the start.

Watched the video that showed how to disassemble the ice maker. Then went right in and replaced the part and turned it on. It immediately started filling up the ice tray. I still have not been able to find out why it does not make as fast as the original ice maker. The tempeature for the freezer is set pretty cold.

Took the ice bucket out and had to disassemble it completely to get the old auger end out of the grinding blades at the front of the ice dispenser. That part was kind of tricky because I was just using pliers to hold the blades while I got the lock washer off the plastic threaded piece that the auger screws into. Make sure you keep those blades in the precise order they come off, along with the plastic bushings that go in between some of them. Once I got the old auger free of the plastic end piece it went pretty quickly from there. I could never get the new auger to screw cleanly into that plastic end piece. It kept cross-threading so I just shoved it back on and it seemed to be snug enough. I've been using it for a couple of weeks and it is doing great.

I replaced the Defrost Timer & Defrost Thermostat previously only to find that the freezer was still freezing up. It was obvious that the Defrost heater was bad and I ordered it. I had ignored Parts Select reccommendations on my first order otherwise it would have been less than 30 minutes to complete all of the repairs. It took longer to defrost the freezer coils than the actual repairs took. I followed the published installation from Parts Select and now my 10 year old side by side is working like a new appliance. Thanks Parts Select for the fast shipping and accurate replacement instructions. Jim from Virginia, you get 10 stars from me!

Water dispenser doesn't work

Watched the video on how to repair this problem. Folowed the simple instructions and it worked. The double outlet water valve worked as it should. When I tested the water dispencer nothing came out of the spiggot on the door but water poured out all over the floor because the 5/16" water line from the replacement valve to the front of the refrigerator was brittle and cracked. I've ordered the part. MORAL OF THE STORY - if your are replacing this double outlet valve, buy the water line and the union for the dispencer. You'll save yourself time, postage and effort. From the looks of it sooner or later the water line gets "cooked" and breaks/cracks.
