Question about Electrolux Refrigerators
Moved in to a place with a newly-renovated kitchen, with what looks like a new Electrolux Icon refrigerator. It is stainless steel, with french doors (freezer on bottom), water/ice dispenser on outside of door, NO "2nd icemaker" in bottom, and I believe "wave" touch controls (HTH -- I can't seem to locate a model or serial # !) The problem is that the handles were put on before the protective plastic was removed, so there are lots of remnants sticking out that are impossible to clean up without removing the handles. I figured I'd remove them, clean up all the bits of plastic sheeting, and replace the handles. I've found the set screws, but they don't appear to DO anything! I have a metric hex set (which is what the set screws look like), but is it possible that I need a regular set? 2.5 fits and 3.0 is too big, but maybe the 2.5 is actually a tad too small so ineffective? That's my only idea... thoughts, anyone??? TIA!
Look real close as the screws may not be hex but tec special screws that require a tec bit set ( available from a good tool shop)
you mention metric sizes for the hex but the screws may be imperial and not metric and that may be the difference

Hi, i think you have a faulty water inlet valve and since the refrigerator is still new with warranty, call in the service again to check and replace the water inlet valve...

I repaired this problem on my Whirlpool fridge with a metal bracket that I designed and installed myself (see photo). I can supply detailed, step-by-step instructions, complete with lots of photographs, to do this repair. I get these brackets water-jet cut in quantity so the quality will be good.
I will sell the instructions, bracket, and attachment screw for $70, or a more complete kit with the bonding compound, drill bit, and chisel (so all you need is a drill and screwdriver) for $100. I think this is fair for the development time, prototypes, and mass production costs involved, and is far cheaper than the $560 Whirlpool wants for a new door. You can do this repair with the freezer door in place, and it should take you only about 2 hours, not counting the 24 hrs to wait on the bonding compound to set up.
E-mail me (jeff at lentzclan.com) if you're interested, and please put "refrigerator" in the subject line. This repair was done on Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator model ED5JHGXRQ (white), but should also work on ED5JHGXRT (Biscuit), ED5JHGXRB (Black), and ED5JHGXRL (Stainless-VCM).
