The door had a loud popping noise everytime you opened it.

The biggest part of the repair was getting everything out of the shelves in the door. I had to remove one phillips head screw from the plastic hinge cover on the top of the appliance. As per the owners manual I traced around the hinge with a pencil so I would be able to align the door to the same postion. Removed two screws with a nut driver and removed the top hinge. The magnetic strip held the door in place until I grabbed it and pulled it open then lifted it up off of the bottom hinge. I layed the door on the island counter and pried the bearing hinge out of the door stop and replaced it with the new one. I probably could have stopped there but figured the plate might have been worn so I remove one phillips head screw from the bottom hinge, lifted the plate off, and replaced it with the new one. I assembled everything in reverse order and voila, no more popping noises.

First of all Don't panic! you can do it and you can save a lot of $$$ if you do it yourself. A friend advice me to look it up online resources and came accross part select on YouTube .

The process:
Defrost the fridge. Take down the panels on the fridge to have room to unscrew the back panels. Once you've taken the back panel out. You will see the thermostat right away. Replace it and voila you're done.

Tried replacing water filter first. It stilled leaked, so I removed the covers to gain access to the water filter base. After cutting the two hoses to remove the old base, I simply slid the hoses into the new base, screwed it into place, replaced the covers, and then reinstalled the new water filter. No more leak!

I shut the water off under the sink and removed the back piece on the refrigerator, unscrewed the water valve, cut the ends off each plastic hose and reinserted into the new water valve. Then rescrewed the water line into the new water valve and turned on the water. Unfortunately, I was not able to get water out of the door and the ice maker still doesn't make ice. While this was an easy procedure, it didn't help me. I'm not sure I needed to replace the water valve.

Cheap plastic part.

Pulled the drip tray out of the ice/water dispenser.
Removed 3 screws, pulled up the beauty ring.
Removed 3 more screws, pulled out the circuit board, and plastic plate that it is installed in.
Removed screws that hold the actuator in place. Unplugged and removed broken actuator, installed new actuator, installed hold down screws. Plugged in actuator. Installed beauty and other parts in reverse of removal. Would probably recommend removing door handle on the dispenser side. Would make installing one of the screws much easier. But you have to remove 2 small hex screws to remove handle.

Water was leaking from the filter area when in-door water dispenser used

  • Customer: Todd from Gotha, FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 11 of 15 people found this instruction helpful
Silly me. It couldn't possibly be the filter because it's worked for the last 9 months with no problems. Decided to replace the water filter base first. Repair was easy. I saw someone had trouble removing tubes from old base and I gave it a couple of tries to no avail so decided to cut the lines instead. Made it even easier. After repair, water continued to leak. So, replaced the filter itself and voila - leak fixed. Make sure you check the filter first. My mistake turned a $40 - 10 second repair into a $100 - 20 minute repair. Good Luck!

water actuator broke

unplugged the refrigerator after pulling it away from the wall. Removed the water tray fairly easily. I read from other experiences about the water tube, i was prepared. I clamp a surgical clamp to the tube before removing the dispenser module. Look at the water dispenser you will see a white tube protruding, clamp it to prevent it from backing out. I removed three screws and the ice/water dispenser removal was a cinch. Two screws were removed and the actuator snapped out and new one installed. Be careful of the panel power strip, if it comes out it can be easily reinserted. Just make sure you get it in correctly. The fitting holding the strip will slide down slightly , enough to insert the power strip and push it back in. 30-45 mins only snag was not paying attention to the orientation of the power strip. If I had removed it at first would have made the job simplier. in other words i installed the strip backwards and when powering up had no display, removed panel reversed the strip and all is well.
Even with this mishap, 30-45 min was consumed. Have fun DIYER's

Turn of power at the circuit breaker.
Remove the water tray by pulling straight towards you.
Remove the three screws at the bottom of the control panel.
Have someone hold the control panel while you remove the six small screws that retain the circuit board.
Gently ease the circuit panel away from the plastic frame and disconnect the six wire connector on the left hand end, followed by the two light connectors with black & red wires, then remove the four wires with spade connectors from the microswitches - noting where each goes. The control panel & circuit board can then be set aside.
Remove the three screws that retain the interior plastic frame. The plastic frame can then be eased forward taking care not to pull out the water pipe. This allows access to the screws that hold the actuators, which should both be removed. Unhook the spring & remove the broken actuator. Feed the new actuator wire up from the bottom of the frame and insert the left hand pivot first and twist gently to snap the right hand pivot into its recess. Replace the retaining plates & screws. Don't forget to the hook the actuator spring into its clip. Test the operation and ease the plastic frame back into position and attach with the screws.
Re-connect and reassemble the circuit board and front panel in the reverse order.
Power on and enjoy a glass of fresh cold water! You may need to press the reset button on the front panel to reset the lights in the actuators.

Water filter needed replacement

Once I recieved the new filter, I enthusiastically opened the box, removed the filter from it's packaging and set it aside for quick access. I opened the refrigerator door, pushed the release button on the old filter and pulled it out. I then tossed the old filter in the trash.
Once that was done, I removed the 2 rubber caps covering the inlet and outlets on the new filter. Then, with ace precision, I guided the new filter back into the slot until it clicked. I ran the water for 3 minutes as the instructions suggested, then, had a glass of water.
Mission accomplished and it went off without a single hitch!
