The ice maker failed

The helpful Partselect video showed a slightly different model, as my icemaker uses optics instead of a bail for shutting off the icemaker. I ordered new optics based on a a customer description that, if the light on the right hand side of the freezer door jamb was blinking 2 flashes followed by a pause,it indicated that the optics were faulty, so I ordered and replaced them. This did not solve my problem. Then on-line I found further information that said I should close the flapper on the left side, and if the light was steady (which it was) the optics were OK. I then ordered the motor unit. I unscrewed the single screw under the right hand side of the track with a 1/4" nut driver, but found that sliding out the ice maker involved a little wiggling and prying, and, because it was awkward to disconnect the electrical connection, I found that it was not necessary to disconnect it. Then, after removing the end cap, it was a straight forward process to replace the motor, while adjusting the shaft to line up. Then,reverse all procedures and I now have ice. Success!

I ordered both the Ice maker and the control boards as It was for a rental and I did not want to make more trips then necessary to repair. I installed the new control boards and the ice maker and the refrigerator now makes ice.

I simply followed the step by step instructions demonstrated in the online videos for replacing the electronic control boards - emitter and receiver. Just that simple. 15 minutes later the repairs were completed. We've had ice ever since.

I checked the trouble shooting guide with the refrigerator and all signs pointed to the Electronic control boards that sense when the ice tray is full. After reading what other customer posted on this site I ordered the parts. I received the parts in two days time and had a harvest of ice within minutes of installing it. Thanks PartSelect. Scott

Your directions were clear. When I took the control off the left side of the freezer compartment the resister burnt the plastic so badly that I had to pry cover loose. This may be a problem for others. Thanks from this "Do-it-yourselfer".

Refrigerator Door Wouldn't Stay Closed

  • Customer: Robin from Alexandria VA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

This is for the refrigerator, not the freezer door which is more complicated. First empty the refrigerator door of food and removed the shelves. Remove the hinge cover on the top hinge by removing one bolt. Then, holding the door, remove the top hinge by removing the three bolts in the bracket (not the bolt in the recessed hole). Lift the door off the lower hinge and lay the door on its edge on the floor. Pry the old Door Cam out of the hole in the door with a knife (my Door Cam was ground completely flat). Insert the new Door Cam. Remove the old Lower Door Cam from the lower hinge and insert the new Lower Door Cam. Pick up the door and lower the door onto the lower hinge ensuring the lower hinge pin inserts into the hole in the Door Cam on the door. Reinstall the upper hinge and insert bolts without tightening. Align door and then tighten hinge bolts. Reattach top hinge cover and tighten the single bolt. Test the door to ensure it closes and stays closed. I had to remove the door a second time to rotate the Door Cam slightly to ensure cams were better engaged (tongue in groove style) when the door was closed. Reinstall the shelves and load the door with food.

Very loud clicking noise when opening/closing door

I did it a bit different from instructions mainly because I disassembled it to troubleshoot before going on line to find part and "easier" instructions.I had a 5" block of wood and cut a shim to use with that to hold the door up. I got on my hands and knees with a mirror and removed the lower hinge plate then the screws holding the upper and lower cams. These both were quite worn so I just took them to my shop and with a hand grinder I rounded off the sharpo corners of the cogs of both cams and then reassemble the hinge plate and cams. This eliminated the loud clicking and the door closed easily but I was afraid it woulod not "Auto Close" when needed so I went online to find this page with the parts needed along with wonderful instructions. I ordered both upper and lower cams which came 2 days later (THANKS). I installed them my way since I did not want to empty the door contents and remove the whole door. I used the block, mirror and nut driver to R&R the bottom hinge plate and both cams. Time was still less than 15 minutes, Easy Fix, Thanks guys! Cheers, Ben

The door would not close completely

First, removed the top hinge (3 screws), then lifted the door off the bottom hinge. Replaced the Cam on the bottom of the door and then the Cam on the bottom hinge (one screw for each). Placed the door back on the bottom hinge, reinsert the top hinge into the door and secure top hinge to the refrig with the 3 screws original removed. EASY!!

I removed the top door hinge cover, removed the top hinge, pulled the refrigerator door off, layed it on the floor, removed the door cams, installed the new door cams, replaced the doo and top hinge and hinge cover. If you have this problem with your refrigerator door, be sure to replace the upper and lower cam.

The refridgerator door would not shut on its own. It had to be pushed completely shut every time it was opened.

I went to the PartSelect online videos and watched this one: "Refrigerator Repair - Replacing the Door Closing Cam (GE Part# WR2X4901)," to assess whether or not this could be a do-it-yourself repair. Even though the subject of the video was demonstrated on a refridgerator model different from mine, it appeared similar enough for me to get the idea of how to accomplish the repair, so I used the PartSelect site to guide me to the parts needed to do it. The parts came in and I once again watched the video and then proceeded with the repair. The repair was very simple and easily accomplished - took a half hour total. If you watch the video referred to above, you'll see exactly the way I did it. My experience precisely mirrored that shown in the video. One hint: I did spend some time wondering if I should have emptied the refridgerator before starting the job, and decided not to. It was the wise choice as the job went so fast, removing all the food would have been a waste of time. The door was off maybe 20 minutes total, and that was only enough time to raise the temperature inside about 5 degrees, which was quickly recovered when I re-installed the door. I can't say enough good about the PartSelect site, for the superb guidance in parts selection, as well as the extremely helpful how-to videos. I probably would not have attempted the repair on my own if not for the help this site provided. Thank you very much for this valuable service.

Refrigerator door was not closing "automatically", over time the plastic cams had worn out.

Easy fix. Used this a teaching opportunity for my 18 yr old son and had him do all the work. The cams have like little inclines that as the meet close the door with like a over center effect. Empty the door. Just undo the top plate 5/16 screws and lift door off. On bottom of door change the 1 piece lower door closing cam and on the bottom post plate change the door cam. add a little grease and reverse the process to install. later in life my son will know how to make this repair.....easy to do folks.

Door no longer closing on its own and remaining slightly ajar.

This is a very easy fix. Begin by emptying the contents of the door. Then, just remove hinge cap and remove the three hinge screws. The door can then be lifted off the hinge pin and placed on its side. Once this is done, replace the two can pieces (one on the door and one on the frame). Then just lift the door back in place and secure the hinge. This job can be done by one person (maybe two if you need help place the door on a work surface) and will take just 15 minutes.
