Went to GE website and researched the problem for the model, determined that it was 90% sure it was the Ice maker, I ordered it and it arrived the next day, installed it and it began working immediately,

Pull ice tray out, empty it, let it warm up. Unscrew two top screws, manipulate with ease on the separator (no screws attached there), pull separator out upwards and at the same time, pull out auger with ease. Pry lock washer off on auger, separate piece by piece in order. With new auger in place, reverse in order to put all back in together, finally place lock washer in groove and snap it to lock. The deflector pin was pulled out with pliers. With new deflector in place, push pin back in with pliers, too. Ease auger back into the separator and slide down the separator with ease. Screw two screws back on.

unplug, remove front selector button panel by gently pulling outward at bottom, unplus the 3 connectors on the back. Remove the 4 screws on the corners of the shoot/despenser structure. gently pull out the structure watching how the wires are routed. Unscrew the 3 solonoid screws hold the ice flap open and remove the solonoid/plunger set. Remove the right pivot holder plate and slide the ice door set to the right and remove. clean the mold build up with clorox and wipe dry. Assemble in reverse order paying attention to the way the return spring is placed on the ice door hinge. make sure the setup moves freely and can snap closed on it's own spring tension. route the wires in the same way they came from the factory, attach screws/wire connectors, pushon the front button plate and your done.

I watched the videos before I received my parts. I thawed the freezer out, removed the panel in the back. Cut the wires to the defrost thermostat and spliced the new one on with wire nuts and tape. Then I did the same for the temp. sensor. Put it all back together. Now the freezer isn't running all the time. I set the temperatures back to normal and it seams to be fine.

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
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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.

The ice auger's plastic threads had broken.

The repair was very straight forward. However, there's a step that you need to press in two plastic tabs in order to remove an assembly piece. The video on this site demonstrating the entire repair made that step much easier to accomplish, and lowered the risk of breaking some of the plastic pieces. Overall, I'm very happy with how the repair went. This is an easy repair that anyone should be able to accomplish.

I disconnected power. then removed all the shelving, then the cover plate at bottom back. taking the four screws off that held the next piece for the ice maker dispenser and then the cover for the fan and motor. replacing the blue grommets first then reinstalling fan with white set collar, re-securing to bracket and replacing all parts. luckily everything was a nice fit and that made the repairs easy adn fast.

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?
