Freezer working but fridge not cooling.

  • Difficulty: Really easy

Totally followed the instructions of the video that came with the sensor. Unplugged the the fridge, defrosted the freezer. Cut off the main sensor that usually is the one that goes out. Installed the the new sensor with new wire terminals, crimped them and covered with electrical tape. Fridge works like a charm. Partsselect is excellent. Saved me a few hundred dollars versus having a GE Tech come and do it.

Frost buildup in Freezer, Fridge too warm. Fan running too long

According to PartSelect website, the probably cause was Temperature Sensor or Defrost Thermostat. I watched the replacement videos. . .. very nice and seemed easy. Ordered the parts and got within 3 days (nice!). I followed the procedure on the video for disassembly, I used a hair dryer to melt the ice buildup on coils and then cut the old Sensor and Thermostat out of the wire harness and, instead of using crimper to seal my new splices, I soldered them instead. I used shrink wrap sleeves, then wrapped in electrical tape for permanent insulation. My Fridge now functions like new again.Thanks Partselect! You are the best!

Checked to make sure it wasn't a plumbing problem. Then made aide sure the filter wasn't plugged. Then went to Parts Direct's web site. According to their information, the most likely problem was the duel inlet water valve. I followed to video instructions provided on the web site...finished the job in less than 15 minutes...and solved the problem. I will certainly be using your service in the future!

It was pretty straight forward. Be very careful removing the top panel above the light, it slides forward about a half inch. Be gentle, the plastic tabs can be easily broken and then the top piece will sag and fall off easily. Everything else was screwed into place and pretty easy to take apart and put back together.

Simple repair. On this 2004 model the button panel is removed by pulling lower part of panel out and down. No need to remove bezel. Remove four screws and a quick switch out of parts! I added an extra half hour to install as I cleaned the flapper area, ice shoot, etc.

Upon receiving the original GE part from Part Select, I read the installation instruction and specific bulletins with in the document then proceeded with removing & replacing the main electric control board. Being an original GE part save a lot of time due to all wiring coupling to board was identical to original so it was simple as unplugging several wire coupling and plugging in to new board. This was extremely easy and I finished in 15 minutes which saved me at least $500 compared to the in home repair service or having to buy a $1500 new refrigerator.

The trim piece covering the opening of the dispenser is the first and most difficult part of the disassembly. Take care when removing this piece that it does not break.

As in previous fixes by others I had to file the tines so the replacement wouldn't jam. No one seems to recognize this is a recurring issue. Also there is no retention clip to keep the stripper from creeping so that it won't jam again.
