GE fridge TBX22ZABLRWW makes loud clunk-clunk when compressor shuts off

26 March 2014 - 10:29 AM

Ours is a freezer-on-top model, and seems to be working fine, but…


I've noticed lately that whenever the compressor cycles off, it makes two loud thunks.


I don't know how long this has been going on, but I know it didn't used to do that.


I checked the fridge FAQ, but didn't find anything relevant. And the troubleshooting flowchart starts with "warm fridge," which isn't a problem.


I'm a do-it-yourselfer, but I'm guessing compressor replacement isn't something I can tackle on my own. How much would I likely pay (parts and labor) to get this fixed?

shelf keeps falling in Frigidaire freezer FFU20FC4AW2

10 November 2013 - 03:06 PM

This is a free-standing freezer, and with a big family and a small food budget, it's very tightly packed.


One of the freezer shelves keeps falling out on one side. I can put it back in, but if I so much as look at it funny, it falls out again.


It's almost as if the shelf isn't wide enough, but is that possible? I'm pretty sure it worked when the freezer was new, but it's been broken for so long I can't remember!


So, how can I fix this?


Also, are all the shelves the same? They look the same, but I see that repairclinic.com shows two different shelf parts:

Frigidaire front-loader doesn't spin: FWTR445RFS1

10 August 2012 - 06:46 PM

Hello appliance repair friends!

My wife just loaded up our front-loader, watched it fill with water, then nothing happened.

(Well—something happened. It made a grinding noise. Which she now tells me it's been doing for many months!)

If we turn the dial to spin, it pumps the water out, but again doesn't spin.

I checked the laundry appliance FAQ, but this symptom doesn't seem to be listed (or I'm too dense to find it).

How to install the trim pieces on my new KitchenAid KEBC147VWH

05 June 2012 - 05:15 PM

I'm almost embarrassed to ask this question—I mean, how hard can it be to stick an oven in a cabinet, right?

Well, the oven is in the cabinet, and it's working. But I'm having difficulty installing these trim pieces that go on the left and right side of the oven.

This first picture shows the oven vent and the side of the oven where the trim piece is supposed to go. There's a tab the sticks up on the vent, and it's not clear to me if the trim piece is supposed to go on the inside or outside of that tab.

I tried both ways, and it doesn't seem to fit either way.

Please take a look at the 2nd photo and see if that looks right to you.

For the Samurai: If you like Whirlpool, does that mean you like Maytag too?

18 April 2012 - 10:57 PM

In your Brand Recommendations, for ovens you liked Whirlpool (among other brand).

But you also mentioned that Whirlpool owns several other brands, including KitchenAid, Maytag, Amana, Jenn-Air, and Magic Chef.

Do you like those brands too? Is a KitchenAid or Magic Chef oven as good as a Whirlpool oven?
