How to remove the dispenser on the newer model LG refrigerators

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Refrigerator Repair, Dispenser Repair 02 April 2012 · 1,608 views
LG, refrigerator, dispenser and 1 more...
Example model number: LMX25981ST

Grab your flavorite fermented beverage and sit at the feet of the Academy's LG sensei:

Per LG training...

Explain to the customer that---removing the DISPENSER ASSY *will* sound as if you (the servicer) are rough/unprofessional.

When removing the entire Housing---loud snapping sounds are produced.

This is normal.

1) Slide forward and remove the drain tray (place finger(s) at the back/rear and squeeze locking tab)

2) Grasp the bottom of the DISPENSER HOUSING and firmly pull towards you (plastic straining noise will occur)

3) Working from the bottom---move to the lower edges and continue pulling/unsnapping the Housing Assy.

4) Since the DISPLAY is situated on the left side of the Housing---all wire connectors are on the left side.

5) Re-installing is much easier than removing. Apply effort to be certain that the Housing is fully snapped in place.

NOTE: Again---per LG---it is NOT uncommon for one or two plastic *tabs* to break when removing the Housing.

This was designed to still adequately be installed---minus a locking/snap tab or two.

Explaining this to your customer will eliminate their concerns---and you'll be a thought of as a professional because you

took the time to explain all of this to your cusomer *before* starting your repair work.

Not much different than having a doctor that tells a patient bluntly:

"Yes, this needle *will* hurt,but the medicine that I'm injecting is the cure for what ails you".

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 · 1,236 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.
