How to disassemble the CustomCool compartment in a GE Profile or Arctica refrigerator

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Repair Videos, Refrigerator Repair 15 March 2012 · 1,475 views
GE, refrigerator, profile and 2 more...
The CustomCool is a gimmicky marketing name that GE came up with for what is basically a souped-up crisper drawer in the refrigerator. The drawer has been outfitted with a system of dampers, a fan, a temperature thermistor and a heater. Depending on the function selected on the CustomCool settings in the controls at the top of the refrigerator, a combination of these components can be used to theoretically chill items quickly, thaw items or hold the drawer pan at a specific temperature.

At some point during your distinguished career as a professional appliantologist, you'll need to take apart one of these CustomCool compartments, typically to replace a fan or a damper. These things are a bugger to take apart. This video will hepya.

How to fix a constipated water dispenser in a GE refrigerator

GE, Refrigerator, Dispenser and 1 more...
Good news: no enema needed for this repair! Sublime Master SANTA turns up the heat on this one:

The first thing to do is undo the water line connection that is below the left bottom of the freezer door, might have to remove the kick plate. Then press the dispenser and see if you have water pressure to that point. If you do then you can test the frozen water tube theory by using a hair dryer to warm up the water tube area for about 10-15 minutes with the door open and see if it thaws out. Be careful not to melt the plastic with the hair dryer. I've noticed alot of times it's a small amount of ice that thaws out by the time I get the heater kit installed. I'll get back to you with the part # of that kit...

GE Refrigerator Muthaboard Concession List of Affected Models

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Refrigerator Repair 28 February 2012 · 11,854 views
GE, refrigerator, muthaboard and 2 more...
Here it is, the highly-coveted and much-ballyhooed list of GE refrigerator models included in GE's concession for having potentially-defective muthaboards.

Note that this was not a recall-- this was never a safety issue. Nor were all the boards inherently defective. This was a voluntary concession by GE which covered the replacement cost for the muthaboard on the affected models due to potential problems with the boards that theoretically reduced their service life.

I get asked about this list every friggin' day. Please make the voices stop! Share this post with your friends using the share buttons below the list so the voices will stop asking me about it. My kitteh thanks you. Domo! :silly:
