Hi patsyb,
I under stand your frustration.

I see this everyday.

Many people call service for problems with their ice maker or fridge icing up
and most of the time it is related to that door you are referring too!
This door must be perfectly aligned and sealed!!!!!!!!

Even a tiny bit off that you can not see with your naked eye and icing problems begin.
It will allow air to seep in from outside which will result in ice forming every place that no one wants and or needs it to be!

We have people calling all day in service with ice forming problems related to the ice maker on all brads of side by sides and the service tech some times comes out 2 or three times ordering and changing parts till he finds the correct one , OR the whole door unit is replaced as they told you about!

If you drill wholes and hang it with wires as you spoke of, you will have so many problems you will wish you did change the whole part!
Now another point is the question?

1. How old is the fridge

2. How much do they want for the replacement of the whole inside part and labor?

patsyb,
Let me know what you do and if you have any more questions!!!!!!

Please remember to give a rating before you sign off or after you decide that I really did give you good solid,fatherly advice in your best interest!
Bless you,

Here is a report I just read!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Water line may be frozen right where it enters the ice maker. Or the water valve may not be working.

SOURCE: Water leaks out of freezer door where line is

Ice Dispenser Open the door and hold the door switch down and try the ice dispenser. Do you hear any thing.You should hear the ice door open and the augur motor turning to turn the augur which pushes the ice out the door. If the augur doesn't turn Take all the ice out of the bin and try. perhaps the motor is too weak or the augur is locked up. Take the bin out and try to see if the motor will turn with no load. The motor is behind the back cover where the bin sits. See if you get power to it using a voltmeter when you try the dispenser. If you are, probably bad motor. If not ,dispenser switch or solenoid is not working. Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components. You should be able to see the water line.

Water dispenser not working GE model GSH25JSX13


Do you hear a slight buzzing when you try to get water?? If yes, you may have a frozen water line inside the freezer door. GE had some problems with those models. They offer a heater kit that has to be installed in the dispenser area of the freezer door. Once installed, in about a day the water line should be defrosted enough to dispense water again. If you don't hear that buzzing sound when trying to get water, you could have a bad inlet valve which is at the lower back of the refrigerator where your house water line hook to the refrigerator.

Hi,

Remove the dispense and reinstall the waterline back into dispenser housing. Make sure the this is the only source of the water issue you have. The tube can slid back into the dispenser and cause the water to run behind the assembly. this is rare thought for the only way this could happen is the dispenser was replaced and the hose was not reinstalled correctly.

Good Luck

Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line at the bottom before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does, leave the door open till it thaws.

Water running out of tube from fridge into bottom of freezer door that leads up to water dispenser ?


Is the water leaking from the bottom of the freezer door ? ( new door ) line is not replaceable inside the door .
Is the water leaking from the tubing at the connector ( about 6" from the bottom of the freezer door ) ( remove both lines from the connector , cut off about 1" of each tube and reinstall into the connector )
To access , remove the kickplate by either removing 1 screw on each side or just pull off ( held on by clips ) .

My whirlpool suddenly stopped dispensing water.


most fridges stop dispensing water when you open the door. Find the door switch and make sure fridge interior light goes on/off when you manually press door switch. This would show you that the door switch was faulty.

If the water connection to the appliance is one of those watts flood-safe water lines, it may have stuck shut. I've seen this happen when the house water pressure is too high.

Does it still make ice?

If so, then the water connection is good, and either the switch in the water dispenser has failed or the water shutoff valve for the water dispenser has gone bad.

Some models have a problem with the water line getting frozen, such that simply leaving the light on in the water dispenser compartment overnight and/or manually defrosting the unit can get it working again.

Water dispenser suddenly not dispensing water


Remove the bottom kick plate . Follow the plastic line about 6" and you'll find a connector . Push in on one end of the connector and at the same time , pull the line out . Close the door and press for water . If no water comes out of the disconnented line , the water valve is probably bad . If water does come out , the line inside the freezer door is frozen . If this turns out to be so , you can lower the freezer temp for maybe days , or , put the food on the door, inside the freezer , tape the light switch down ( to keep the lite off and fan running ) and tape plastic over the freezer door opening so the freezer will continue to work . Reinstall the line back into the connector by pushing the hose firmly into place . Leave the freezer door open for maybe 1 or 2 days for thawing out , going by ocassionally and pressing the water dispensor . Important : lower the freezer temperature slightly to keep line from freezing again . ONLY CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN WATER FLOW SLOWS OR ICE CUBES GET SMALL . The change filter lite comes on by the amount of times water dispensor is used and to make money for the vendor .

Water despencer in door sudently quit working. Ice maker still works . is there a special solinoid valve for the water? Where is it located? Thanks Al


The valve is on the back of the unit where the water from the house comes in. Usually blue. Water inlet valve is what it's called.

Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws


disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad.

Water leaking from inside door


the water line for the water disp runs in a chase that goes up thru the bottom hinge of the refrig door. SO DONT PULL YOUR DOOR APART! you can order a new water line thru frigidaire and replace the part by removing the water dispenser housing on the door and pulling the line thru the door then inst the new line in reverse. if it looks like too big a job then get a reputable company to inst it for you.

Door dispenser stopped dispensing, starting making a constant clicking and now the entire fride isn't working


We had the same problem. Our frigerator is 1.5 year old. Everytime we try to dispence water or ice the dispencer clicks and the whole thing turns of. We had a GE repairman come by: the electronic board needs to be replaced: total cost $350. (cost of the board only: $150. We are considering disconnecting the dispencer by unplugging the board (according to the repain man the ice maker wil still work)or buy a new refrigurator (for sure NO GE!!!!!!)
