  1. I have a french door whirlpool refrigerator. Customer stated the water started randomly spraying water out of the dispenser-nobody was near the refrigerator. Now water dispenser doesn't work, ice dispenser doesn't work and ice maker quit. When put in diagnostics none of them worked either. No error codes nothing. Any ideas? I checked the wiring at the hinge cover -all connected and no broken wires. Thanks in advance
  2. During any cycle that uses water, the machine is leaking water out the rear plastic cover that covers the electrical gear and valves. I removed the cover and the entire inside (valves, etc) are soaked. Floor has a large puddle. Google found me nothing - can't find any indication of where the water is coming from, other than the valves or perhaps the cups that store the detergent/softener. Any ideas?
  3. I've run into a few of these over the years from multiple model numbers and would like to share what I've found with the rest of you guys so hopefully you don't have to learn the hard way. Symptom is that the freezer will not get cold and they may tell you about a hiss even. You get there and put your gauges on it and find it's drawing a suction on the process tube. So after pressure testing the system you find there's a leak in the hot gas loop. Well here's where it turns into a mess. That hole in the gas line is allowing water to get into the sealed system and you'll never get it out. The only solution is a total sealed system replacement and a really good flush out of the remaining lines using either rx11 or some sort of refrigeration system flush to flush both the condenser and the mullion heater lines to get everything out, followed by nitrogen to flush out the flush. Here's the last one I ran into, somewhat start to finish along with follow up pictures of the evaporator and compressor cut open to reveal the water that gets sucked into the system and what the water will do to the internals of the compressor. Some are just pictures of brazes. Sometimes I'll take a pic of the backside to look at them, sometimes I think they're pretty, and sometimes I'll just document it to look at 10 years from now. Anyway I left the album raw, meaning if I took a pic that wasn't fuzzy I put it in the album. This job took me 5 1/2 hours to finish and I did it in place not removing the refrigerator from the cabinet.  http://imgur.com/a/2xJaZ    
  4. I haven't seen to much on these icemaker so I figured I would start. If anyone knows a good info source I would appreciate it. OK, here goes.  Icemaker has been leaking and when I got to this one I  couldn't even remove the icebucket. We agreed I would return after giving some time to thaw. After thawing I wasn't able to harvest using the TH jumper, so I checked for voltage. No voltage at T or H when checking both to ground. No voltage when checkin g from T-H either. I entered diagnostics and went to step 25 (icemaker fill test, see tech sheet) and checkde for voltage at T-H and now the 120V was present. I tried again a few times in both normal and diagnostics...same result. Also, the icemaker is less than a year old. Customer said he installed it himself. I can see the evidence also. He tore up the plastic cover for the harness and broke the retainer tab on the side of the icemaker. So I do believe he changed it, LOL.   So long story short, why can I harvest only in diagnostic and not in normal ? I'M part number is W10377151. Thanks for any info on this.
  5. My 3 year old Samsung RF4287HARS has been working flawlessly until recently, when the ice maker began producing small ice cubes.  I've checked all the logical solutions . . . water pressure is fine, water line is good, replaced the filter, reset the ice maker.  None seem to make an impact.  My next step is to adjust the water fill level to the ice tray but I can't find the right button combination on the display panel.  I've spent hours searching for this and no luck.  I found some instructions in another post for a different Samsung model but it does not work on mine.  Any guidance?  Very appreciative of any help.
  6. Hi all, I find myself once again with water dispenser failure. I previously beat a frozen water line into submission with your kind assistance. (Read the riveting story here http://appliantology.org/topic/47223-ge-g2ixefmwb01-door-water-dispenser-stopped-working/?fromsearch=1) This time seems to be a valve issue, however. Here's why I think so, and what I've done so far: Firstly, both the water and the ice maker have stopped producing, whereas before I only lost water. Also, I have pulled the water line loose directly from the outgoing side of the valve in back of the fridge (near the coils and canister), and cannot get water flow from there when depressing the switch for the dispenser. Other info: I knew trouble was a-brewin a few months ago, when I started hearing a sputtering / chattering racket when the valve would kick open for the ice maker. At the time, I had just installed one of those "bargain" AquaFresh brand filters, so I chalked it up to that, or a bit of air in the line. I've since gone back to the the GE brand, but obviously this was not the cure. The issue persists either with the filter or the bypass plug installed. So, down to the actual questions: 1. Did the off-brand filter possibly cause this failure, or is it just coincidence? 2. Should I go ahead and replace the valve, or is there something else I should check first?

  9. Hello. Recently, I purchased a refurbished freezer. The product is under temporary warranty for at least the next 30 days.   From the time they delivered the freezer up until now, it was extremely warm and had zero coolness. It had no frost and wasn't freezing at all.   I complained to them over the phone for the last 2 days.   Before the product left the store, all of the staff said, "but it was working beautifully and very frío" and that they "put plenty of Freon in it." When the product came to my house it wasn't working properly.   I called yesterday morning and they said they'll send someone out to fix it. A few hours later that day, no one showed up. So I called again and they said, "We'll just get a new one for you."    Earlier today, the store manager told me, "the freezer doesn't NEED an exchange right now." Later today, he came to load the Freon into the compressor. He said his "didn't put enough Freon in it." He said Freon can "last for YEARS and YEARS" and he'll only exchange it if it stops working. I'm not 100% comfortable with this broken-on-arrival product. I'm pretty sure that whether or not it's working that I can still exchange this for another freezer. The other freezer they have is an upright freezer, which I prefer to have. They are a "no refund, exchange only" kind of store. I'm currently stuck with an Amana-brand 7.0 cu ft chest freezer. The model number is C101DW.    This almost perfectly describes my situation (I'm not 100% sure about the leak though): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j24Bu-8eLyQ   Does adding Freon, a refrigerant/coolant, to a freezer indicate that there is an undiagnosed issue with the appliance? The guy that was loading it with Freon said it's supposed to have 7 ounces of Freon ideally.    Here are the pictures of my freezer: https://tinyurl.com/freezerpic1 https://tinyurl.com/freezerpic2 http://tinyurl.com/freezerpic3 http://tinyurl.com/freezerpic4 http://tinyurl.com/freezerpic5 http://tinyurl.com/freezerpic6 http://tinyurl.com/freezerpic7 http://tinyurl.com/freezerpic8   He said there is a leak ONLY if the freezer is over 0 degrees and if it makes certain sound. Currently, the freezer temperature is under 0 degrees according.   Also, I noticed that the access panel is missing. Without this, the compressor can easily be viewed and perhaps exposed.   Sorry if this post is too long. Could someone please confirm if the information they provided to me is accurate?
  10. Thanks to all who helped. Had a customer call about a defrost issue. I did the necessary repairs. Now complaint is that water not coming out of dispenser. After investigation I noticed that the resovoir was frozen, I checked the evap coils to ensure fridge was in fact dethawing. And it was.i dethawed the fridge and water flowed easily out dispenser. Gotta call back a couple days later, am I missing something. Much appreciated
  11. Hey everyone - some details:   - Miele G891 Dishwasher installed by previous apartment tenant   - Just recently it started flashing the "Water Intake" light after 1-2 minutes of running.  It doesn't appear to have any water coming into the machine.   - I took the intake valve line off and confirmed that water is flowing from the pipe.  I also cleaned out the restrictor and the filter.   - I also did the hook/spanner trick of spinning the impeller blades with a fork and it didn't appear to be stuck on anything.   I think the water intake line valve (two solenoids in plastic) is broken, I'm not sure how often these things break but curious if it's something I can replace myself.   Some questions:   - What else could it be besides the aforementioned problems?   - Is it likely that this is the problem?   - Is this something I can replace without pulling out the dishwasher (it's a built-in so not sure how hard it would be to remove).  Like can I order just the head unit and splice the wires from the original cable?   Would appreciate any help as well as where to buy these things.
  12. Our HE3t is not draining. We keep getting SUD and F02 error codes. Worst part is, the door will not unlock either. We cleaned out the catch and made sure the hoses were clear and not kinked. We ran it with the panel off and can hear the pump making noises like something is lose. This is a two part request...   1. How can we get the door open? 2. Can you point us towards the correct part and instructions on how to replace it?   Thank you! Pamela
  13. Dear experts, Greetings! I have been told by my lovely landlord that because I am at fault and should pay for repairs and damage due to my not cleaning the filter etc out (I did it a day or two prior) and now have to pay for the new filter unit and chipboard facia that was swollen due to the leak coming out the bottom of the front door. I had started complaining approximately 18 months before, about water not going into the machine, not being pumped out on finish, bad smell, leaks, and until the repair, an occasional leaky door and rotting screws to attach the facia to the until - the machine is appx 3 yrs old. Does anyone side with the landlord and can you explain why a dirty filter can cause such devastation! I can't believe it. Thanks for reading.
  14. Subzero fridge compartment 49 degrees is as low as it will go.  No faults that I can tell on the indicators.  Evaporator looks like the attached pictures.. What does this Indicate? Is it for sure evaporator leak or low freon?   Thanks for any help.
  15. I had water pouring out of my ice cube maker, so I replaced the water inlet valve.  Nevertheless, water continues to fill the ice maker tray and over flow out the front of the ice dispenser.    Is this a bad sensor?  I would expect it to fail safe, that is, shut the valve off, but that is not the case.  The water is coming out regardless of whether or not the ON/OFF bar is up or down.   What should I do?

  18. CUST SAY ICE AND WATER DISP. STOPPED WORKING FOLLOWED BY A BURNING SMELL ANYBODY ELSE SEEN THUS  THANKS.
  19. It's been doing this for a while.   Issues in the freezer are:   Icy stalactites near the front.   Icy buildup where the bottom and back panel meet.   Coil is a tad frosty but the ice is soft and wipes right off.   There were a few icy chunks on the back of the foam piece.   Issues in the fridge are:   Top shelf gets too cold: water drips on top of containers, collects and freezes; spoils produce.   Water collects on bottom of fridge to the point I can't use it for storage plus it will eventually leak out the door.   Rubber seal at top left corner of door is worn; gap showing.   Also seal from bottom left corner all the way across bottom is completely loose but when closed it stays in place.    What I have checked so far:   Took back panel off of the inside of freezer(almost, finicky wire housing clipped into back wall does not want to budge; yes I tried squeezing the sides) to check if there was a plugged drain but I can't see where the defrosted ice goes after the hole cut in the center of the 'channel tray' below the coil. I stuck my finger in there and it stops about 3/4 to an inch in. My model doesn't look the same as other photos I've seen on forums where some of these issues have been discussed.   I've never actually witnessed water dripping into the fridge from the freezer above but the ice buildup on the lids of containers and the quasi-pool at the bottom are a dead giveaway.   Not very fridge savvy so let me know if I forgot something. My main concern is the fridge but I fear it may all stem from above.   I don't have a camera.
  20. I picked up a whirlpool dishwasher and the guy says it wasnt filling with water so he replaced the inlet valve but still no water.  I was wondering if it could be the float or the switch underneith that could be causing the issue.
  21. I spent about three hours perusing most of the posts on this french door unit that I could find. I was unable to find a post, or a download, that could assist me in removing the ice maker.    My situation looks like the valve slowly leaked water into the ice maker and caused it to bind up and crack up the tray. There was also water frozen in the bottom of the dispenser drawer, sticking the cubes together.    The top plastic cover with the styrofoam was chewed up slightly, and when I showed it to my customer she exclaimed "that's where all that funny white stuff came from." When I dropped the motor head down and then the ice tray, the thermistor fell down and the wiring was chafed at the rubbery end of thermistor.   There is ice and water dripping down on the back wall directly under the ice maker area.   My question is: How to remove the ice maker? How to remove the auger motor/head? How to best extricate the frozen fill tube or at least defrost it? I watched an outdated ice maker removal video and read numerous posts and Q&A's on the parts site. I also have downloaded all the recent files on this but cannot locate instructions for working on this. Did I miss something somewhere?    Domo to all...
  22. The screen on the cold water inlet kept getting clogged with sediment (we have a well) to the point I had to scrape off the crud daily. I have therefore installed an "all-house" water filter for the cold water inlet pipe feeding the washing machine installed thusly...hose running from cold water pipe run to filter, than hose out of filter into cold water inlet on washer. To check to make sure it was working, I depressed the "finger faucet" in the cold water setting and the water gushed out (cold water) as it did when filter screen was unclogged...success...but when I went to wash, I set water temp to cold/cold, set the cycle dial for normal, pulled the control dial knob out to start and no water. I replaced the water inlet valve less than a year ago so it should not be a problem.
  23. I have a GE Monogram Refrigerator, model ZISP4800TASS, manufactured in 2007.  This is the built-in model, double door stainless steel.  A water and ice dispenser is located in the freezer door.  Selector buttons on the dispenser control panel enable you to choose between water, crushed ice, cube ice, or to lock the dispenser.  The dispenser has started to randomly turn itself on, dispensing either water or ice, depending on the dispenser control panel selector button that was last used.  The dispenser does not shut itself off.  I can turn it off by depressing the lock button on the panel or by opening the freezer door.  For now, I have disconnected the dispenser wiring connector assembly running from the top of the refrigerator into the freezer door, and have turned off the water supply.     I have seen some threads on the Internet with others having a similar problem with different GE refrigerator models, but not this model.  Sounds like the issue is either in the micro switch or in the control panel, both being in the dispenser.   A few questions if someone can help. 1. Anyone have experience with this? 2. Thoughts on the micro switch or the control panel?  Since it is random, a repair person told me it may be condensation periodically occurring in the micro switch shorting out randomly, whereas if it was in the control board, the problem would likely be continual and not random. 3. This unit does not have a bezel around the outside of the dispenser.  So I am not sure if the dispenser can be removed from the front, or if the stainless door panel has to be removed first.  Anyone know? 4. If the stainless door panel has to be removed, can it be done without removing the whole freezer door?   I live out in the boonies and can't seem to find a repair company willing to come out to fix it.  Unfortunately, GE has been no help. I'm generally a do-it-myself person and am willing to give this a go.   Thanks Marty
  24. When I pull out the Starter button, my washer does not start filling.
  25. I replaced the water inlet valve on my U-Line CLR2060 ice machine in February and it failed last week.  Of course the place I bought the part from has a 90-day warranty on parts.  Before I spend another $50 on a U-Line 2552a valve, I thought I'd check here with a thought/question:   Aren't these all pretty much the same and just have different inlet/outlet connectors and mounting brackets?  If I find a similar (i.e. 120V,60hz,20W) solenoid & valve wither either the same fittings or I adapt my fittings, won't that work?   Thanks for any input and apologies if it's a "dumb question".
