How to fix a constipated water dispenser in a GE refrigerator

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Refrigerator Repair 03 March 2012 · 1,806 views
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 · 11,423 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:

The "older" style Maytag ADC
This is the OLD (notice the 18-pin chip) 61005988 ADC failure-prone Board
It has the L1 - TEST (lower pins on connector)

Manual Defrost Cycle is tested by momentarily jumper L1 and TEST
(with insulated jumper)

The "newer" Maytag ADC is a better design.. (same part number)
Newer OEM 61005988 (8-pin chip) 61005988 ADC Board... L1 (but NO Test pin)
Manual Defrost Cycle is tested by cycling the Freezer Cold Control 3x within 6 seconds and leaving it on MAX
