Samsung refrig RF265ABPN water leak in FF section, question about heater clip

30 July 2015 - 03:49 PM

I finally decided to start repairing Samsung refrigerators, so please bear with me if I'm missing something. I researched the problem here, and after inspecting the refrig in person, determined the water leak appearing under the crisper bins (and ultimately onto the floor) is due to a clogged defrost drain for the FF evaporator. Ordered a new evap cover/fan assy, and ordered the defrost drain heater kit that's referenced in service pointer ASC20140703001.The kit that was called for in the service pointer (kit # DA82-01415A) has what appears to be a very short heater clip. Maybe it's the right one, but I just wanted to verify that it is indeed the correct clip for this model. I've included a pic for reference:

Does that appear to be the correct one? And while I'm at it, any advice on how to install the aluminum covered adhesive strips included with the kit? The instructions appear pretty straightforward, but just thought I'd ask here in case there's any info that may be useful for installing them.


GE refrig PFS22SISDSS - french door gaskets - how to replace?

29 July 2015 - 06:09 PM

I have a customer who wants the gaskets (2, one for each door) replaced on the french doors of their GE bottom mount refrigerator. I downloaded the manual for the model, but didn't see anything about how to replace them. Can anyone explain the procedure for replacing these gaskets?

Again, model # is PFS22SISDSS.




Maytag refrig MFI2269VEM2 ice maker not working

23 July 2015 - 05:41 PM

This is the first time I'm trying to diagnose a problem with one of these refrigerators with the 'ice room' in the refrig section, so I wanted to check in here and see if I'm diagnosing this properly. Not sure if it's worth noting, but the customer just recently changed the water filter because the water flow out the chilled water dispenser was very slow. Since changing the filter, the flow has greatly improved. Since then, they noticed the ice maker stopped working. I pulled the cover off the ice maker and found that I'm only getting about 1.3 volts (ac) between the H and N test points on the ice maker (with both door switches pushed in). I checked voltage at the big connector that runs on the left side of the 'ice room' and see that same 1.3 volts between the yellow wire (which is the hot coming into the ice maker, as far as I know) and the white neutral wire. Looking at the schematic, the J2 connector of the "Iceland Main Control PCB" sends voltage to the ice maker...could that be responsible for the lack of 120v at the ice maker?

What else can I check to further narrow down the culprit? I'm suspecting the main control PCB...but I don't want to be a PCM, toss a new one in and cross my fingers hoping that it works.  :sillytongue: 

Again, model # is MFI2269VEM2.



Kitchen Aid SxS refrig KSC23C8EYW02 water filter bypass?

22 July 2015 - 05:03 PM

I had a customer today with a 2 year old side-by-side kitchen aid refrig, and he was wondering if there's a way to bypass the water filter in the refrig section. Looking at parts diagrams I couldn't come up with one. Does anyone know if there's some sort of adapter that can be installed to bypass the water filter?

Edit: on second thought, I'll have the customer try running the water dispenser with the filter removed and see if it automatically bypasses the filter port. Otherwise, I suppose they may get some water in their refrig section when activated.


Ge gas dryer GTDP490GD2WS timer hard to turn, breaks knobs

20 July 2015 - 08:39 AM

I've been running into these left and right lately. The timer is very tight/difficult to turn and winds up breaking the timer knob/dial. I just replaced a timer the other day that had the shaft break off due to this issue. The new timer works, but it's probably just as tight as the last one. On certain models that use a larger knob/dial, there's a metal ring reinforcing the center of it, presumably because these timers are breaking them. This dryer has a small knob/dial, and I can't find a reinforced replacement. Anyone know of any upgrade knobs for these, or if there's a modification that can be made to make the timer less tight?
