CustomerJAMES from MORENO VALLEY CA

Water dispensed at a trickle

I only had to remove the old filter and install the new one - all by hand. I then ran about 1 to 1and1/2 gallons of water through the filter to clear it.
A WORD OF CAUTION - HOLD YOUR GLASS CLOSE TO THE WATER DISPENSER FOR THE INITIAL FILLING - IT WILL SPIT UNTIL THE AIR IS PURGED FROM THE SYSTEM!!!
An extremely easy repair.

Ice damming and freezing blocking dispense door

I unplugged the unit and removed the modeling around the beverge center on the exterior door. At this point I was able to remove the face place to the icemaker and gain access to the ice maker doors csrews. I unscrewed them and replaced them with the new part and reassembled in the reverse order. Generally an easy fix for a poor design for novice handy man/women...

Loud grinding sounds from ice maker when in use

I called my favorite John Moore repairman who had been out a couple weeks before for my clothes dryer. I had briefly mentioned my icemaker problem to him then & he told me to remove the ice bucket, empty the ice, rinse it & re-install it. So when I called the second time & had him listen to the noise on the phone, he said I needed a new ice bucket. I got the model # off the fridge, ordered it from Repair Clinic.com and bingo! Works like a charm now. I saved at least $98 trip charge & who knows what he would have charged to do the same thing. Total charge to me for ice bucket & new water filter was under $150.

Auto water stopped working, found that filter needed replacement

Unscrewed old cartridge, ordered new cartridge, installed new cartridge by following very simple instructions. Took only one day for part to arrive from PartSelect although I paid for cheapest shipping, which was "ground." I was amazed!

CustomerPorfirio from Hainesville IL

Fridge was warm, built up of ice in freezer

I had a buddy come over that is a bit more mechanically inclined than myself come over to install it. To remove the old part and install the new one was not difficult to do. I could have done it.

I would also suggest to check the Defrost Heater in the Freezer. We replaced both to be sure. So far Fridge working AOK, saved $$$ doing it ourselves.
