SOURCE: Icemaker in Admiral side by side refrigerator/freezer stopped working

see if you can bleed the air trapped in the water line to the ice maker. if air is trapped, water would not be flowing and it would take only a few seconds for the solenoid to be open to let water flow.

see if you can hot wire the solenoid to let water and air out of the tube long enough to bleed the air and hopefully, the ice maker would work continuously.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: Hi our fridge is building

The problem is caused by the failure of either the defrost thermostat or defrost heater. In any case, replacing both the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat is recommended, and that would solve your "ice in freezer" problem.

SOURCE: I have an admiral fridge

hello again,

Sorry to hear that the drain is clear and not the problem, some of the other things that cause that water are;

Freezer door gasket...is it curled up in the corners espicially on the hinged side so air is leaking in and condensating resulting in water

The tube that send water into the icemaker is partially frozen so when water enters the icemaker it's being sprayed and dripping to the bottom(if thats the case ice would probably be built up all over the freezer)

The door for the ice dispenser isn't fully closing and will cause condesation just like the door gasket would

Good luck,
GENE

Help. I shut down my refrigerator when I moved. When I opened the door, I found the refrigerator full of maggots. I used clorox to clean it but I heard there could be eggs that I could not reach. Is...


Maggots are the larvae that have hatched from insect eggs. Yes, there might be eggs somewhere still in your refrigerator. I would suggest that you locate an insecticide (a bomb type perhaps) and set it off in your refrigerator BUT UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR FIRST. Close the doors and let the refrigerator stand for a week. After that time, you will need to carefully wipe down all surfaces with a mild soap solutions. Then rinse well. If there are still lingering odors you can wipe again with baking soda solution or you can place activated charcoal in the refrigerator to absorb the pesticide odor. I had this same thing happen in a foods lab with a microwave oven. I used this procedure and never had maggots again. You don't have to be a dirty person to have problems like these! I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

Rudd 2.5 combo ac/heat unit


This could be due to a freon leak or the condenser unit needs cleaning also the evaporator in the attic should also be cleaned and inspected. If cold sweat is not seen outside on the large line going into the outside unit I believe you may have a freon leak. Sea Breeze

After cleaning blower on the furance outside unit will not start.


If you took the door off of the squirrel cage fan for a while the freon gets so cold the compressor cannot pump it. I will trip the outside breaker. Just let me know if during the process did wiring get moved around. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Poulan Wood Shark Chainsaw - wood smoking. Is chain on backwards?


I cannot tell you about a picture, but for one: chain direction, the bottom of the bar is where the cutting takes place, and therefore, looking at the chain, you will see, on the bottom, the antikick back link is sort of curved, and then the next part is the straight tooth. The highest part of this straight tooth is the sharp edge, and this high part should face towards the motor. The chain, on the bottom side of the bar, is pulled in towards the motor by the clutch/gear. That is your direction of travel.

As to cleaning the air filter, Hopefully you have access to compressed air, as in simply blowing off the dirt. You do not want to use liquid cleaner. Simply blow off any dirt, after pulling the filter away from the carburetor, of course. Then place it back in place.

It may be that your chain is real dull. The top edge of the high part of the flat tooth needs to be sharp. And the outside corner needs to come to a nice point. Remember, there is two cutting surfaces on each tooth, the top is cutting down into the wood, and also that outside sharp corner is openning the cut for the bar to pass through. Proper sharpening, if new to it, can be hard to grasp. Any chainsaw manual should show how to do a good job.
