h2o not flowing to ice maker

  • Customer: STEVE from Porterville, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
First I turned the water supply off to the fridge.Next, I let a little water out from the supply line & into a container in order to rule out a faulty line or valve. Since I was able to get water from that, I figured I had three possibilities left to work on. I already intended on replacing the water filter so other than replacing the entire icemaker I would order the water valve. I ended up spending approximately around $60 for both items but could have saved more $ if I had bought the water filter from you guys. I was familiar due to past experiences involving the water valve but I did read some of the experiences that was printed online and thought that was a plus and because of your self help guidance it enables an average Joe to repair an appliance without being sent to the poor house. Thank you immensely and Look forward to doing my part shopping on line & thru your company. Yours truly, Steve

Temperature panel showing Error Code

This fridge had been slowly dying over the past 3 years. First to go was the Ice Maker/Water control. It wasn't the switches, it was something else. Then it was the compressor acting up, making lots of noise, running all the time. Finally the temperature of the Freezer failed. But after unplugging and restarting, it began to work again. By this time we emptied the thing out and just left it there to see what would happen, while pricing out new replacement refrigerators. Finally the compressor stopped and the temperature panel was blank except for an error code. HSR maybe, I don't remember now. But I was resigned to buying a new $2000 refrigerator. I don't know why, but I did not want to gamble on calling in a service man. Acting on a hunch, I did a BING search on the error code and my model number. The best hit was the PartSelect video showing how easy it is to replace the main board. Reading the description, all of the problems solved by this fix were ones that we had with ours. So I convinced my wife to take a shot at spending the $160 to fix the fridge, and maybe save $2000. So I did it. The video instruction was easy to follow, and I have done some repair work, and built my own computers before, so it was not out of my realm of experience. Short story: It worked, and the fridge is working better than ever.

Ordered another motherboard from GE. Received shipment in less than 3 days. Replacement motherboard was packed very well. Installation took about 5 minutes with a common screwdriver. 4 hours after installation the refrigerator and bottom freezer were back at normal temps. Saved myself hundreds of dollars by doing it myself.

Vanes on ice auger broke

  • Customer: Henry from Hemet, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

After receiving the replacement auger, I watched the Partselect video on how the repair should proceed. The warning about correct placement of ice crusher blades was helpful. The auger housing was a bit tempermental during disassembly, but finally removed. After watching the video again, the ice crusher blades were installed on the new auger and the assembly put back into place. No parts left over! And it works!

Freezer iced up and frige too warm.

I called a repair shop and they said the control bd. was bad. They replaced it and about 2 weeks later it happened again. They came out again and replaced the bd. under warranty. About a week later it happened again. This seemed like too much of a coincidence, so I looked around on the internet and found your site. The video showed how to replace the freezer safety thermostat which I ordered on Sunday and received on Tuesday. By then the coils were iced up again. I completed the repair in about half an hour. So far the old GE is working like new. Thanks for the help. I just wish I hadn't spent over $400 for incompetent repair people in the first place. Thanks again, you guys are great! By the way the part only cost about $17 including shipping.

I followed the instructions on the video presentation, stopping the video each time until I had completed the described step. Only one minor change from the video...my refrigerator door (stainless steel) does not have the plastic edging around the control panel as shown in the video. It took me a minute or two to figure out that I had to push the tabs on the bottom of the control panel. The rest was easy.

Frost inside freezer door and water dispenser line freezing

  • Customer: James from Marietta, GA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

I followed the video instructions (very helpful) and used others comments for removing the control panel. For the latter I used a small allen wrench to carefully wedge the bottom two indents (look from below panel edge) slightly up and forward to release the panel. Next, after removing the four screws, the assembly (housing shield) removed fairly easily. I then had full access to the flapper and removed this carefully with the pliers so as not to damage the piece it was attached to (Dispenser Door Recess Crank?). The rubber outer flange on the otherwise plastic flapper was very irregular for approx. 1/4 of the circumference and thus did not seal. So far it's been one week and no more frost build up or frozen water dispenser line.

Found the refrigerator wasn't on any longer and the lights on the display were flashing and the select buttons for ice maker no longer worked or responded to being pushed, researched online and gave a bit of a guess to change out the control board, and the new one solved the problem

Unplugged, thenRemoved cover plate on the backside of refrigerator, unclipped wire harnesses, then popped small white plastic clips that hold board in place to release, clipped new one on, plugged wire harnesses on, screwed metal cover on with remembering the ground wire and then plugged back into electrical outlet, it works fine now.

My GE Profile refrigerator was making the clicking noise

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
My GE Profile refrigerator was making the clicking noise so many people on the Parts select website mentioned, but luckily was still cooling at least sporadically. The mother board I ordered came in expeditiously and I installed it in about 10 minutes. This is an easy job, made easier by the video explaining the installation provided on the website. The clicking disappeared and by the following morning the temperatures in both the fridge and freezer had stabilized. I figure I saved the cost of a new fridge, or the probable $800 or so bill to have a repairman come to the house, ( I live in NewYork where we all, particularly repairmen, charge each other double)
