I followed the instructions on the video presentation, stopping the video each time until I had completed the described step. Only one minor change from the video...my refrigerator door (stainless steel) does not have the plastic edging around the control panel as shown in the video. It took me a minute or two to figure out that I had to push the tabs on the bottom of the control panel. The rest was easy.

Frost inside freezer door and water dispenser line freezing

  • Customer: James from Marietta, GA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

I followed the video instructions (very helpful) and used others comments for removing the control panel. For the latter I used a small allen wrench to carefully wedge the bottom two indents (look from below panel edge) slightly up and forward to release the panel. Next, after removing the four screws, the assembly (housing shield) removed fairly easily. I then had full access to the flapper and removed this carefully with the pliers so as not to damage the piece it was attached to (Dispenser Door Recess Crank?). The rubber outer flange on the otherwise plastic flapper was very irregular for approx. 1/4 of the circumference and thus did not seal. So far it's been one week and no more frost build up or frozen water dispenser line.

Took the paper clip, pressed in through the holes on the bottom of the ice dispenser panel. Removed the four screws. Loosened the panel and removed the wires. replaced the flapper door. Then reversed the process. Your video was VERY helpful except for the paper clip. Had to get that off another web site.

Since my refrig is 18 yrs. old and I never had to replace it, took a little long to remove trim piece on the outside. After that repair went smoothly. I still have problem with water collecting inside on the bottom of the freezer, might have a leak somewhere. Ice maker is functioning correctly.

I watched the video on the PartSelect.com website and decided to give it a try. The replacement of the flapper was even easier than I anticipated! The old flapper was extremely warped and was allowing air into the freezer. I'm not sure how/why it was in that condition but I am happy to report that I have no more ice buildup. Thank you, PartSelect!

Had to take front panel off dispenser area. Then remove components and install new part. That was easy part. Problem was getting components back into front of freezer. Seemed like something was blocking it from going all the way in. Had to remove small amount of insulation and "jiggle" components and eventually fell into place.

Hardest part was removing the escutcheon around the ice maker on the door. Used a putty knife to find first clip pullout than the rest was easy. Disconnecting plugs from circuit board not as easy as looks, broke one locking clip have to be more careful when lifting the small clips. Once done than removed plastic casing and and easily removed the flapper and replaced with new one. Since I didn't know what I would encounter I ordered a spring and the arm that holds the flapper. I pre- assembled the parts and had it ready to install once I removed the defective part. Whole job under ten minutes...GE service starts at $99.95 just to come and look at it, than parts and labor after that I saved at least $100 dollars. Very easy fix.

I have a GE Monogram to replace these parts you have to remove the stainless skin front from the freezer door. This is quite difficult and even harder to get back on. Other than the door front it was quite easy. If You can get the stainless on and off every thing else is a breeze. I did it by myself 2 people would help. Thanks and goodluck

upper rear of fridge too cold

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I removed the light and cover, then removed the lower vent cover. This required a bit of pinching and pulling. Then I removed the Fresh Food Air Inlet Cover. I looked inside and saw that the flap/dampener was unseated and flopping around. That would explain why all the cold air was coming in from my freezer and freezing the food in my fridge. Replaced old with new, plugged in, reinstalled all covers, and Voila! My fridge is working correctly again. Thanks to the first review which was the one I followed. And Thanks to PartsSelect!

Refrigerator Too Cold- Freezing Food

  • Customer: Dean from Lakeland, TN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I stated this repair to a bit difficult because it is awkward to work on with your head cocked backwards to see while having to lean inside the frig but really its an easy part to replace. The cold air damper was broken where the metal shaft of the electric actuator motor inserts into the hinge side of the damper and allowing the freezer air to over cool the frig. The damper is made of plastic and looks like a small door. I super glued the damper once but the repair only lasted 45-60 days. You would have to take the old part completly apart to see the motor and damper so I would not do this unless you are like me and want to know how things tick. To insatll the new part you need to remove the top 2 shelfs, then remove the lighting section with a phillips screwdriver and let the light fixture hang from the wires. The tricky part is to use a thin flat screwdriver to pry at the seam of the plastic cover at the bottom of the air duct. You cannot see the mounting attachments but behind the air duct cover there are vertical slots that slide and mount onto screws fixed to the back wall of the compartment. If you are not careful the cover can be broken where the slots slide over the mounting screws. The rest of it is pretty much as the instructions decribe. I installed the new part as is with only one cold air opening eventhough there were 3 cold air openings in the old part which the instruction do not address. The extra openings are probably meant for faster recovery once the frig door shuts yet the frige seems to work fine now after a week of operation so I would assume the other openings are not necessary. The new fan motor made a high pitch whining noise so I took the new part out again and replaced the fan motor with the old one which took care of the noise problem. If you do this be careful not to install the old fan motor in backwards or the air will blow in the wrong direction! Other than that the new part fit and works great! Good luck with your repair. -d

Our GE Monogram's freezer and flood locker compartments were too cold

This website is awesome! It basically tells you exactly what is wrong with your fridge. Our food side of the refrigerator was getting way too cold. Some items actually froze. I looked here and it said the fan/ damper assembly was broken. All I did was remove the part they said was broken and sure enough the little damper door that lets freezer air into the fridge side was broken. I ordered the part, replaced it and presto the refrigerator holds perfect temperature again! The replacement was super easy...only tool needed was a screwdriver and 15minutes! Thanks
