Local appliance repair co. diagnosed and replaced motorized door in refrigerator section; problem manifested itself again one week later. Same appliance repair co. then said it was probably the defrost thermostat, they changed thermostat; problem came back after another week. I went on your site and figured that the next most likely thing was the defrost heater. I ordered one and it came the next day. I dismantled the various panels, sensor covers, air dams and removed and replaced the heater element. After watching the refrigeration cycle for a couple of days I saw that the problem appeared to be cured then I replaced the panel and sensor and fan covers and put the ice cream back in. That was a week ago, it seems to be ok now.

I was skeptical when others said it took about 5 minutes to do this repair, but they were right. The hardest part is emptying the fridge enough to get drawers out. After that it's a matter of removing a few screws, and putting the new piece in. Really simple!

I unplugged the refrigerator. Then removed the ice tray. Then removed the screw holding the ice maker secure. I had a little difficulty lifting the ice maker off the clips on the side of the refrigerator but was successful. Then unplugged the wire harness from the back of the refrigerator an lifted the unit out. Removed the wiring harness from the old unit and installed it on the new one. Then positioned the new unit so I could plug the harness in the refrigerator and lined up the clips to attach it on the side of the refrigerator, being careful to line up the water distribution tube. Replaced the screw to secure the ice maker and plugged the refrigerator back in and it is working very well. I am very hsappy with the repair

I bought the Center Rail and installed it as mentioned below:
1. Open both doors of the Refrigerator fully.
2. Take out the top glass of the box holder and keep it in a safe place.
3. Place one end of the new Center Rail on a slot located in the middle of the frame.
4. Slide the other end from any side and place it on the other slot.
5. Make sure that the entry side of the Center Rail should be in the front.
6. Now put back the glass on the top and it is ready to hold the vegetable container again.
7. Just role the vegetable container slide moving up and down so that the roller sets in Center Rail then push it.

Ice maker was leaking water into ice tray and freezer causing large "icebergs" and ice dams to form.

  • Customer: Reginald from Gaithersburg, MD
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Video was helpful and reading the other responses online was a big help also. Followed all of those instructions. Most difficult part was disconnecting the electrical plug to the ice maker. Need a screwdrive or other pointed object to depress plastic tab. Other than that, things went smoothly. HOWEVER, after turning water back on and plugging in fridge, I thought everthing was perfect...no leaks initially. BUT, came back a few hours later to find no ice cubes in the holding tray, "iceburg" formations and ice dams built up again thoughout the freezer. Water was leaking continuously from the ice maker. Upon further analysis, it appears the electronic mechanism keeps telling the fridge to send water to the ice maker...or, it is sending too much before shutting the water off. The tray is overflowing and that seems to be the problem. I'm back to square one, but with a new ice maker.

Replaced the pantry end cap by first removing the pantry drawer. Then removing both crisper drawers and the first shelf with the plastic bars that hold it in place. Removed the slider that the pantry drawer rests on to move in and out -just needed a small flat head screwdriver for that. Then removed three nuts holding the end cap with a nut driver. End cap snap right out and new one went right in. Screwed in three nuts. Then reattached the slider for pantry draw with two screws. Reassembled shelf, crisper drawers and then slid in pantry drawer - reattached the pantry lid to the pins on either end cap. Very easy. The activity that took longest was acquiring the nut driver - I didn't have the right tool. All in all simple job.

Changed bulb, not the problem, had to remove switch to identify correct choice to order (3 pronged verus 2) after that it was easy beyond having to stand on my head to make the exchange. (N B before removing old switch it actually came back to life)

Ice Maker quit making ice

Watched the video on the web site and then followed the instructions. It was very easy to change. After changing it, I filled it with water from a cup to get it started making ice since the video does not address how to do this. It has been working well ever since. If you are handy with tools, you can do this.
