Food compartment not cooling, freezer working well.

  • Customer: Mary from Kenmore, WA
  • Difficulty: Easy

Fantastic!
Sent in a brief description of problem and model number. Reply and description of other customers experiences guided us to the exact problem.
We ordered the part on Friday and it was here on Tuesday.
I prepared the freezer compartment for the removal of the old motor and on Sunday husband installed new Evaporator Fan Motor.

It works and is cooling like it did when it was new.

This has been a great experience as all repairmen wanted at least 60.00 to just come out and determine what the problem was. I can only imagine what the final bill would have been.

This was easy and inexpensive.

Thanks for all the help.

Unplug refrigerator. Take out spill tray by sliding out. remove bottom 3 screws, gently but firmly push up and against refrigerator(Top section of cover snaps in by pulling cover down while holding cover against refrigerator). There is a ribbon wire connecting the two boards, care not to tear it out of connectors. There are two tabs on the plastic connector holding the ribbon wire to the outside board,pull the tabs out a little and gently pull the ribbon loose, carefully. There are 3 screws holding in the back board, remove them, them remove water hose from water actuator so the assembly can come out. Gently spread the plastic holder to be able to take the broken paddle out. Watch closely how the third arm on the actuator(Lower left arm)is resting on the back of the flapper.Replace the Actuator exactly the same. Just reverse the steps to install the rest of the parts.(Had a time getting the water hose back into it place. I used pliers to push and wiggle it back into it opening).Don't forget to plug the frig back in again. DOOR CLOSING CAM AND HINGE BEARING ARE VERY EASY. It take about 10 to 15 minutes to do. Empty door drawers before procedure the screw holding the plastic cover, remove cover. I used a 3/8" nut driver and my cordless drill to take out the two lag bolts holding the top hinge.Lift door off bottom hinge. Replace Door Closure/Hinge Bearing. Reverse procedure to finish installation.

I replaced the water valve, but it still did not fix the problem.The old water valve I took out I'm assuming worked fine, I think the real problem is ice building up in pipe or some other blockage.

Parts select was very fast in shipping, very positive experience with them.
I will definitely purchase again from this site.

The broken fan made my refrigerator sound like a lawn mower I pulled the refrigerator out of it's nook and disconnected the power, removed the back panel with my battery powered drill motor, slid the old fan off of motor shaft, slid the new fan back on ran it to make sure the problem was corrected. The entire repair took less than fifteen minutes and was as simple as it could be. Please be careful when cleaning your coil, as the fan is easily damaged if you should contact it.

Ice maker malfunctioned

We followed the video instructions and it went fairly smooth. After turning off the water at the street we found that the faucet at the wall had it's own "on/off" valve. When finished, we turned on the power and heard the gears going through their revolutions, but no ice was made. We waited 24 hours and still no ice. I removed the cover on the ice maker and adjusted the amount of water to see if that was malfunctioning. Still no ice was created. Waited another 24 hours - nothing. Waited another 24 hours (the site said that sometimes the ice maker would take time to reset itself) - nothing. Then on the fourth day after changing out the triple water valve we heard water being dispensed and later that day it put out the first ice in weeks. Another hour later another batch of ice cubes were ready and deposited into the bin. Since that time, we have had a full bin. I moved the set screw back to it's original setting because a little too much water was being delivered. The cubes weren't separating to individual cubes. That cleared up the problem. This was easily completed - we recommend others do their own work. Just be patient for the system to reset itself.
