Fridge side too cold

  • Customer: Brian from Eden Prairie MN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

Most of the time was spent removing frozen food and removing the plastic clip holding one of the shelves in place. Removal of bottom panel took less than a minute. Thermostat easy to find, clipped wires a the unit and removed unit. Used included wire jackets, but not white shrink wrap. This did NOT fix the problem. This was the attempt at a 'cheap' fix. My refrigerator required the 'control box' to be replaced.

Ice maker and water were not working.

Water dispenser lever snapped

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.

The shelving brackets are install much like a blind rivet. I simply used a punch and gently pushed in the plastic center pin / mandrel. I then used a butter knife as a wedge to pull out the shelving supports enough to grab them with a pair of pliers. Simple to do!

Ice maker did not produce ice.

The repair was easy. The problem was the lack of explanation. This may help other customers. I was told by the virtual trouble shooting system that about 30% of the cure was to replace the water filter and 70% was to replace the water valve. I did both and still had the problem. People need to be told why they have to replace the water valve. The reason is this. The valve has a very small leak in it that lets water continue to flow into the freezer compartment drop by drop. Eventually, this freezes and clogs the hole , so no water can pass and thus no ice can be made.In either your web site or another they stated that it may freeze up here, but there was no connection to the water valve.It seemed like it was another topic. Its very hard to see the frozen area, unless you remove it from the freezer area. I wish I was TOLD TO DO THIS, after i replaced the valve It would have saved me a repair bill. I hope this helps others.
Take care-Bill

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

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!

I followed the past suggestions and I opened the parts list to understand what was where. Caution when removing the face plate. The flat white connector pulls out easierly. It can be plugged back in after. I have big hands so it was hard to connect the water back to the unit. Other wise it went ok.
OH , make sure to unplug the refrigirator. I touch the control board and got snapped.

The actuator arm broke on the unit and it had to be replaced

  • Customer: Irene from Perkasie PA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

The actuator arm was the only part that was a little difficult. The drip tray and the kick plate went on very easily. First, we went online to your schematic on the unit. This showed how it was assembled and how it came apart. We then terminated the power to the refrigerator, and removed the drip tray which exposed two screws holding in the face plate for the ice/water on the door of the refrigerator. We then removed three screws from the control panel and pulled it forward. This exposed the actuator and two more screws that held it into place. We removed them and unplugged the small plug giving power to the actuator. We then installed the new part and replaced all the screws that had been removed. We reassembled the face plate and the screws there and then snapped in the drip tray. When we turned on the power everything worked fine.
