Most recent models have casters or skids that will allow for fairly easy removal once you "get a hold on it". Don't hesitate to open the door(s) and use the gap between the door and the chassis to get a grip. I suggest pulling from a point that is lower than the center of the door so it won't have a tendency to tip outward.

How do I remove a Viking side by side refrigerator from the wall cabinet it is in?


There are adjustable wheels on front. Jack up front enough to grab the frame and pull out slowly. Be careful if you have water line for ice maker.

I HAVE A AMANA SINGLE WALL OVEN THE ELEMENT SPARKED AT THE BACK OF THE WALL. I PURCHASED A NEWW ELEMENT AND WHENITOOK THE OLD ONE OUT THERE WAS NO WIRE TERMINALS AT THE ENDS OF THE PLUG IN END OF THE...


when it burnt off it fell somewhere between the oven chamber and the back panel.once finding it,its just a matter of splicing a new wire terminal end and attaching it to the element. The problem lies in thats its a built in wall oven and may be needed to be removed from the cabinet to find and repair this wire. Depending how tight it fits into the cabinet it may not come out easily and even break the wood around the cabinet. which of course you could face in pulling it out to replace it with a new oven. ONe thing to keep in mind is that all wall ovens are slightly different in size and the replacement oven needs to be pretty close to the size of existing one or the cabinet will need to cut or filled in so their wont be a gap left when new one is smaller leaving a gap in cabinet up to 2 inches on either top or side walls

How do I remove and replace the water filter in my side by side?


I'm not familiar with this particular model, but often they are an 'in-line' cylindrical cartridge type of filter on the end of the mains water supply to the Fridge/freezer - pull the cabinet out from the wall and look behind to see if you can find one.

How do i turn off the water supply to the fridge if its pipe is leaking?


There should be a small valve behind the fridge. Pull it out from the wall, and look behind it with a flashlight. They are usually near the floor at the wall. Turn clockwise to close it. In older homes, the water line can be run under cabinets to under the kitchen sink where water pipes are..

Old installations use 1/4 inch copper tubing. Newer ones use 1/4 inch nylon. Some use flexible white hoses.

If you close the valve and it still drips, then the entire water system will have to be closed off to replace the valve. These valves and new connection kits are available at sears, home depot and lowes.

It leaks water from underneath


If the water is coming out from under the fridge and you have a water dispenser or automatic ice maker, then I would suggest that you pull the fridge out from the wall and check the water tubing going to the back of the fridge. The tubing is connected with a compression fitting (a special nut that compresses the tubing to the fridge. There may also be a few more pieces of tubing on/in the back of the fridge with these fittings. Place you fingers on each fitting to see if it is loose or wet. If you find a wet or loose fitting, take some pliers and tighten it (snug it up, but not too tight because you can damage the fitting. Dry up the water. Watch the fridge for a while to make sure the leak is stopped. If you can't get it stopped, or if it gets worse, you can cut off the water (there should be a valve under a cabinet next to the fridge, or under your sink). You can get a replacement fitting at Lowe's2_bing.gif and they can tell you how to install it if necessary. If you have water pooling under your fridge and it goes up to the wall, then you should check on the other side of the wall for water also. This happened to our fridge, but we did not see the water in front of the fridge because it ran to the back of the fridge and under the wall into our carpet on the other side. Wet carpet is how we discovered the problem.

Refrigerator slides on floor causing door to bind


there should be some adjustable feet in the front that you can tighten down so that the wheels get pushed off the floor. causing the fridge not to move. if that is already tightened down another idea is to find out the distance from the back wall and get a piece of wood that length and just set it back to prevent the fridge from moving back. hope that helps

I have a ge side-by-side refrigerator. The freezer part is working by the fridge part is barely cool. What can the problem be? This refrigerator was purchase in 09/99.


Check point 1: Check on the back wall of the freezer compartment for snow build-up, if there is snow on the back wall you have a defrost system problem. Call for service.

Check point 2: Make sure the condenser under the cabinet is clean. If it is plugged up with dust or dirt clean it by vacuuming it out then blowing it out.

My Maytag side by side is 7 years old. Bar between fridge and freezer just began getting very, very hot also? What can we do to repair? Does the condenser fan motor need to be replaced?
