Unit making surging noises and water/ice dispenser not working

  • Customer: David from Sackets Harbor NY
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

The repair video was great, made the repairs very easy. Once the old main electrical control board was changed out, the unit started to work good. I also vacuumed the back of the unit where dust had built up around critical air flow areas. I am still having trouble with the filtered water not working. I was thinking the trouble might be the water flow check valve. The cubed ice and crushed ice both work great. The freezer is set on 1 and the refrigerator on the 2 setting. I have found where the water spout comes out of the door, if the ice flapper door does not seal properly, the water freezes at the curve of the water spout. I open the freezer door for 10 or so minuets and that's enough to thaw the spout for use. The cost to do the repairs myself was $160. I saved hundreds of dollars. Thanks PartSelect. Dave,

The Part Select videos made the repair super easy. Monkey see -monkey do. One thing that should be stated more strongly is that you need to UNPLUG THE APPLIANCE SO YOU DON'T SHORT OUT THE MOTHERBOARD. Accidentally shorting out the motherboard makes the repair much more expensive.

The instruction sheet (2-pages) supplied with the main control board were simple to follow. I removed the cover in back, carefully unplugged all the cable connectors, unscrewed the green ground wire, and lightly pinched the four white mounting pins with my fingers to release the old board. I then snapped the new board onto the four white pins, plugged all the cables back in, attached the ground wire under the closest available screw, and closed it up. I did not need to cut any wires. Plugged the refrigerator in and it's been running fine all day. The whole job took less than 10 minutes.

Removed control panel. Snapped out pretty easily. Removed flapper assembly (4 small screws). Replaced micro switch by prying it away from its holder (unsnaps easily). Disconnected the two wires leading to the micro switch and connected them to the new microswitch and reinstalled switch in reverse order. Cost of switch, approximately $13 including shipping.

The trouble with DIYers is that they don't have very much experience with and the benefit of several repairs on the same appliance. So they must rely on their mechanical abilities and the youtube help of Steve. So they must resort to eliminating the variables as their diagnostic approach. In my case I was unable to find the exact description of my problem, so I began with what seemed like the most likely and the least expensive replacement. So after I had replaced the water valve, the micro switch and the main board I finally found the problem was the water filter by ordering and installing a water bypass valve which I did not have readily available at the start.

I researched the issue on line and replaced the microswitch. I didn't test the part since it was so inexpensive and the whole process only took me about 15 minutes to complete. I didn't know "where" the microswitch was located until I watched your video, a very helpful tool. Thanks PartSelect, the part arrived 3 days after I ordered it.Mike in Spokane, WA
