It takes a 1/4 " nutdriver to take one screw out that holds the cover over the water filter. You have to come up from the botton of cover. Then take two water lines off housing , by pushing the round collar back toward the fitting,and pull fitting off housing. Then take the two screw out that hold the housing on. Make sure you have the water turned off before you start.

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

The radiator was not defrosting.

  • Customer: Alfredo from Mount Pleasant, SC

  • 21 of 30 people found this instruction helpful
The radiator was not being properly defrosted and the refrigerator and freezer could not keep the temperature. Two things can be causing this, the defrost module which defrost the refrigerator on a regular basis ($110) or the thermostat ($18). I tried the thermostat since it is very easy to do (remove cover plate inside the freezer, cut wires of old thermostat, connect new thermostat by stripping wires. Presto...however the thermostat was NOT the problem. The problem was a blown timer circuit board that controls the regular defrosting. That repair was done by a technician. The board was $110, it seats inside the refrigerator in the control panel area.

Project requires removal of 9 phillips head screws. Also have some needle nose pliers and a paper clip and/ or skinny magnet handy for steps (7) and (9).

(1) Turn off power to refrigerator.
(2) Slide out water catch tray at bottom of dispenser unit.
(3) Remove the three screws that are now visible.
(4) Pull front water/ ice dispenser (cosmetic) panel off of the refrigerator and set aside.
(5) Remove the 3 screws affixing circuitry panel in place and set aside.
(6) Gently pull out the circuit panel and allow it to hang from the refrigerator door. Note: Unless you have very large hands you should not have to disconnect any wiring to do this repair.
(7) Remove the three screws and two plates holding the dispenser actuator in place, being careful not to drop the screws or plates into the unit. If they do drop you can get them out of the unit using the needle nose pliers and/ or a bent pointy piece of metal (e.g., paper clip).
(8) Remove broken dispenser arm.
(9) Insert new dispenser arm.
(10) Replace all screws and panels.
(11) Turn refrigerator power back on.

Note: The new dispenser arm has reinforcing bars molded into the back that were not on the original model. The company is apparently aware of the problem of the weak dispenser arm and fixed it in the replacement part... so, you should not have to be doing this repair again.
