Question about Whirlpool GT2SHKXLS Top Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

We bought a GT2SHMXMSO4 fridge about a year and a half ago. I noticed several months ago that the plastic edging in front og the glass shelves and the shelves in the door are all cracking in the middle.

    Our Whirlpool refrigerator, GT2SHMXMS04, has a cracked shelf and is only 18 months old. And our household has two adults so the cracking is not from overuse or kids. .... Very dissapointed. ....

It has a plugged defrost drain. You may need to defrost for 24 hours with unit unplugged and doors open. UNPLUG FIRST!! f still leaks, you need to remove floor of freezer, then the back wall of freezer. Remove ice. At center rear under coils is the drain hole that is plugged up. Use hair dryer to melt ice. Pour hot water in this area to uncover drain. With hot water in area, you can put a 1/4 diam. hose or copper pipe in drain and blow into it while pressing down. It will slowly go through ice, clearing drain.

A computer expert friend suggested I turned the fridge off and on again. Like you do sometimes with computers where nothing else works. Well couldn't reach the plug, but this morning the electricity went off. Whenit came back on again this aft, all the buttons were working again! Magic.

However, still do not know where I can order new shelves. Can you help with that?

Get your refrigerator repainted before it is too late. It isn't that costly. Cracks may be due to rusting. Ask those mechanics about it when you give it for painting.

RF197ACRS Samsung fridge How to remove glass from the shelves to clean


Well, I don't know about the individual shelves, but for the long glass shelf above the crisper drawers, there are two white clips located at the back edges of the glass that need to be pried out with a knife blade, or something similar. Place your blade in between one of the grooves of where the clip meets the plastic frame (and, NOT between the clip and glass! ) and pry the clip with a bit of a sideways motion. It's a little stubborn, but if you break a clip, don't worry, you really don't need it for the shelf to function.

Anyway, after you pry up the two corner clips, lift and slide the glass toward the back to get it out of the front groove, and voila!, the glass comes right out.

Good luck!

It's very likely the wires that go inside were worn out or cut by the internal plastic edges. It happened to mine. I removed the soft plastic at where it rotates and noticed that the wires were cut but the internal plastic edges. If you bought it less than one year ago, Altec is replacing them. If not, check if you got an extended warranty through the store or your credit card company.

sounds like you have a gap in the door seal, which results in condensation forming inside unit. Use a blow dryer to heat the seal around the door and ensure that the fit is tight.

Smelly water from door dispensor


I had the same problem. Drove me crazy and cost me about 5 filters at $50 a pop until I found the solultion. Water in the Sears/LG refrigerator that I have (french door trio) goes through the filter then into a container on the left front door of the refrigerator. That container stores the water so it can get cold and it also equalizes the flows in the system so that when you put your glass under the spigot the flow is steady and the water is cold. Problem is .... this tank can build up with algae/slime/foul tasting stuff. Since it is after the filter, no matter how many times you change the filter it will have no impact on the water in this container. That is why if you use the water spigot a lot, the water seems to get a little better (as the tank water gets diluted) but as soon as you don't use it for several hours or more, back comes the smelly water again. Solution for me was to remove the plastic panel on the inside of the left front door and clean the plastic bottle. It is pretty easy to remove with 2 screws and easy to pull off the hoses. I filled is with a little clorox and water and swished it around for several minutes then drained and rinsed it. Then I filled it again with a little clorox (like an ounce or two max) and put the container back into the fridge. Once in the fridge, I ran fridge water through the front water dispenser for about a gallon or so. This flushed out the chlorine in the plastic container as well as the lines between the container and the spigot. After about a half hour of work, my great tasting water in the fridge is back again. I've checked the taste on this water for several weeks now and no plastic/odor/bad tasting water any more. Hope this helps.
