Valve body split and was leaking

  • Customer: Ray from Canyon Lake, TX
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Wrench set

Exactly as the instruction video said. I could have done it without the instructions but I would not have cut a piece off the two water lines and possibly had problems down the road. Also, I may not have figured out the easy way to remove the two lines from the valve body. I believe this is my 3rd time using your process and it's absolutely the best. I won't go anyplace else. Next project is probably replacing the ice maker.

We have put up with this noise for several years and finally couldn't take it anymore. After research on the internet and reading about other folks solving the problem by replacing the main board, I ordered the main board and replaced it. That was a week ago. It has been a week blessed with SILENCE from the refrigerator. Hallelujah!!! It was an easy (if expensive) fix and the instructions were spot on. Anyone have a use for a defective main board?

The light switch was accidentally broken. I looked it up on your site and found the part. I ordered it and switched it out in a matter of minutes. It also helped having people who purchased their switches from the site explain how they repaired their switches with relative ease.

water flow at door was very very slow

normally low water flow would indicate filter change. however i changed filter two months ago. using the wonderful information available on this website, figured i'd try changing the water filter head with tubing, as it seemed that water flow w/o filter, although substantially better than with filter, might be low. unfortunately changing water filter head didn't solve problem. it was the bloody filter after all! however the repair went well, the correct part arrived in a timely fashion, and over the course of time i think that the spring mechanism inside the filter head had weakened and was not making as solid as contact as when new. so it was i feel a worthwhile repair as water flow is now awesome with new filter in place. thanks guys for your great website. you are making the world a better place!

This website is awesome! It basically tells you exactly what is wrong with your fridge. Our food side of the refrigerator was getting way too cold. Some items actually froze. I looked here and it said the fan/ damper assembly was broken. All I did was remove the part they said was broken and sure enough the little damper door that lets freezer air into the fridge side was broken. I ordered the part, replaced it and presto the refrigerator holds perfect temperature again! The replacement was super easy...only tool needed was a screwdriver and 15minutes! Thanks

Remove bottom three shelves and drawers. Water tank is located on rear wall under plastic shroud. It is held on with 2 thumb screws and one phillips screw on left of tank, remove these. Shut off water supply at source. Remove lower rear access panel. Visual inspection reveals two 1/4"tubes protruding thru lower left floor of unit. Pull white seal ring, on blue plastic connector, to left while pulling inserted tube to right. Remove black plastic grill under doors at front. Disassemble tube at blue connector, by pulling white ring to left while pulling inserted tube to the right. Water will leak from both of these tubes so be prepared with towels! Pull tank assembly up thru floor and discard.Insert new tubes thru floor, attach tank to rear wall, then reattach new tubing into connectors. Push tube into connector until black line is no longer visible. Slowly turn water on and observe connector for any leaks. Replace front grill and rear access panel and you are done, saving yourself 150.00$ in service charges.

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.

Watched the video that showed how to disassemble the ice maker. Then went right in and replaced the part and turned it on. It immediately started filling up the ice tray. I still have not been able to find out why it does not make as fast as the original ice maker. The tempeature for the freezer is set pretty cold.

Fridge & Freezer started getting warmer

First I replaced the Defrost Thermostat. I unplugged the unit and removed the back panel from inside the freezer. Then I placed a portable heater near the freezer w/ the door open to melt the ice build up. After all the ice melted, I was able to replace the defrost thermostat per the video on your website. It took less than 15 minutes to do this repair. The Fridge and Freezer temperatures got better instantly. This worked for about 2 months, then the same symptoms started occurring again. This required all the same step above except this time I replaced the Defrost Heater Kit. So far it's working great...I'm glad I didn't send the defrost heater kit back after the first repair. A Repairman wanted to charge me $350.00 to fix the issue. I replaced 2 parts in less than 30 minutes for less than $50.00 including shipping. The videos for repair on this website were easy to follow! Thanks!
