Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Have a GE GSS25SGMB BS side by side refrigerator. From what I can tell, the flap on the ice & water dispenser does not close all the way. It then builds up frost on the back of door and then in the ice dispenser itself. So, no ice or water dispensing. Called a GE service center and was told I needed a solenoid and that it was an easy install. Have the part but do not know the best way to access. From the front or from the back? and how exactly without damaging any other parts????


Answers :

The front dispenser panel where the selections are will pop off. Being careful use a flat blade at the bottom edge of the panel and pry softly. The control will pop out at the bottom and you will be able to pull it out and disconnect the wires going to it. Unplug ref so you don't accidentlly activate any switches. After you have the control off you will see the 4 screws holding the dispenser assembly. Remove these and set the assembly aside. Then you will see the solenoid. Loosen the top screww and remove the bottom 2. Remove the solenod by sliding down and also tilting so it clears the ice door flap. Install is just the reverse. Thank you for using fix ya and hope this was a help.
The best way is going to be from the back. This means you will need to remove the plastic door insert. If you look at the door seal and lift up on the inner side of this seal you will see the screws that hold a flat peice of metal that goes the length of the door. There will be 4 of these strips of metal top, bottom, both sides. Once you remove the door insert the area will be easy to access to install the solenoid. Upon reinstalling the door seal if you soak the seal in hot water, not boiling, it will be easier to reinstall and more pliable.

Hello, I have a Whirlpool side by side refrigerator, Model number: ED5FTGXKQ02. I am having a problem with the ice maker. The water drips out of the water chute into the ice tray and all down the back of the freezer. It makes solid ice chunks so that we are unable to use the dispenser. I do not know what part I need to replace. Can you help? Thank You Susan Miller

We have the Kenmore 106.5703.601 side by side with an ice maker. We lost power for a whole day. The power is back, but the ice maker does not dispense ice. Water is dispensed through the door fine, and there is ice in the ice maker, but the ice maker will not kick out the ice. The manual is useless, in identifying the working parts. So, what is a mother to do? help, Mom in MD

Whirlpool ED2FHAXSB It makes ice but doesn't dispense ice. Every other part of the fridge works fine. Lights light, water dispenser works OK, the temp is OK, I don't see any fuses or anything else that might be wrong. Also, cleaning the fins underneath is strange. They seem to run side to side rather than back to front. There is little access to clean this part of the fridge. How do I effectively clean these fins?

10 yr old kitchen aid KSRS251 side by side leaks water from freezer onto floor about every 3-4 days - about 5 oz of water which is enough to be slippery/dangerous. I spent a half day completely thawing the freezer by removing all frozen food, turning power to freezer off and using hair dryer to melt all ice including inside back wall. Still leaks. Also ice maker works but doesn't dispense. Doubt this is related to first problem but also would like to know if this is some sort of gear replacem

My LRSC26923TT side by side fridge/freezer has stopped making ice. It still dispenses water but it would not dump the last tray produced. I removed the cubes from the tray by hand, emptied the freezer, and shut down the fridge for an hour with the freezer door open to allow all parts to thaw and the electronics to reset. When I turned the fridge back on, it returned to normal operation, except the ice maker still will not work. The ice maker has an on/off switch. I've cycled that switch both on

WHIRLPOOL GS5SHAXNQ00 CONQUEST ICE - WATER DISPENSER PROBLEM: Our 2004 ice - water dispenser starting dripping water from both sides after we came back from 3 months away. The ice cubes were somehow melting a bit even though the freezer temp was 0 to -10 degrees. We took the ice cubes out and now thick frost is forming in the ice bin but no dripping.
