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

  • Difficulty: Really Easy

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.

fan making lots of noises

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?

water flow at door was very very slow

  • Customer: Ivan from Redding, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

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!
