Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a GE Hotpoint refrigerator, Model CTF19ECB, serial number 503293, probably manufactured in April 1983. Its capillary line has sprung a leak, probably from rubbing against the condenser outlet line. I am going to repair the leak, but have a question. The compressor has a single valve on its body, and rhe schematic says it is the "Service valve". The valve is threaded in the inside, and is operated by by a hex-headed stem which is inside the female threaded body. The hex-head seems to have female splines at the corners, and I wonder if it takes a special tool to operate the valve.I also don't understand what the valve does. Can I operate it in a way that lets me evacuate the refrigerant, or add refrigerant, or admit nitrogen during the braze-repair of the capillary line? There is a tag on the compressor that says TBF17PC-27. Another tag says GE thermally protected PC-26.

SOURCE: water line broken for Kenmore refrigerator near compressor

Cut off a piece of line and go to a good hardware store, they can show you how to fix it. Need a coupling, and a nut and ferrel. House water line goes on one end of coupling, nut and ferrel on the broken water line on fridge. A good hardware store will be able to show you how to fix.

SOURCE: Capillary tube replacement

The True TSSU-60-16 uses an oversized (134A) refrigeration system with air flow directed at the pans.... if the capillary tube is plugged it will NOT cool at all.. most of the time a restriction (plug) is at the drier where the capillary tube goes into it.. as it is smallest passage in the system...hope it helps

How do I determine the year my GE model TFX24R was made?


Print How to Determine the Age or Manufacture Date of a GE Appliance

The manufacturing date and year is coded into the serial number of the appliance. Our serial numbers begin with two letters. The first letter identifies the month and the second letter identifies the year. The corresponding letters, months, and years are below. For example, if the serial number begins with the letters "FJ," the appliance was made in March of 1952.

Letter Month (first letter) Years (second letter) A January 2001, 1989, 1977, 1944 B -- 1945 C -- 1946 D February 2002, 1990, 1978, 1947 E -- 1969, 1948 F March 2003, 1991, 1979, 1949 G April 2004, 1992, 1980, 1950 H May 2005, 1993, 1981, 1951 J -- 1952 K -- 1953 L June 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970, 1954 M July 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971, 1955 N -- 1972, 1956 P -- 1973, 1957 R August 2008, 1996, 1984, 1958 S September 2009, 1997, 1985, 1959 T October 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1960 V November 1999, 1987, 1975 Z December 2000, 1988, 1976 AY -- 1965 BZ -- 1966 CA -- 1967 DB -- 1968 VU -- 1961 WV -- 1962 XW -- 1963 YX -- 1964

Where do I find the model number on my Hotpoint


In the last few years GE has placed the models serial label on the top center, top left or top right of the fresh food section. Older models had it behind the fresh food door at the bottom or behind the grille. Also there were a couple of years they placed it behind or to the side of one of the lower drawers.

Sorry about all the different locations. That's just how they did it.

Thanks.

Can you tell me what year my Hotpoint was manufactured by these numbers Mod HDA997-01 Ser MS 625407X


The manufacture date is determined by the serial number. GE manufactures Hotpoint, so the following link explains how to determine the date code:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576454-determining_the_age_of_your_ge_appliance

The date of manufacture is determined by the first two LETTERS in the serial number. The first letter represents the MONTH, the second letter represents the YEAR. So, according to the serial number you provided, your dishwasher was manufactured in July of either 1985, 1997, or 2009. If this is a fairly recent model, but not new, I would assume your dishwasher was manufactured in 1997.

I hope this helps you.

Would like to know mfg. year of ge washer, model # wwa8600sclww serial #fm199947g


The date of manufacture is determined by the SERIAL number. The following link explains how to determine the age of your appliance:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2880575-determining_age_ge_appliance

Look at the first two LETTERS of the serial number. According to the info I provided, your washer was manufactured in March of 2007 if its a fairly recent model. If it appears older, it may have been manufactured in either 1995 or 1983. These serial number formats get recycled about every 12 years.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
