Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

How to you remove the control panel from a GE Adora DFSS9VKBSS model? I need to replace the ice route case assembly unit. Any video of similar posted there is a trim that pops off. Not in this case though. There is a single screw that I removed under the panel, but the control panel seems to be intertwined with the curved panel that sits below it. I don't want to dent up the finish. Is there a trick to getting these pieces apart?

SOURCE: ice dispenser flap does not close after ice comes out

The trim on this model doesn't need to come off. Instead pry the control (with the buttons) panel off to expose the screws. the control panel has a small wire harness to it that is easy to disconnect. Let me know if you need more help. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Replacing Defrost Heater and Bracket in Freezer Section of Fridge

I ended up having to remove things in this order: all shelves, ice maker insert, ice maker top ice tray, ice maker lower motor housing, shelving support rails (2), rear evaporator coil cover. This exposed the evaporator coils (which were already dry since the fridge had been off for two days) and most importantly, the defrost heater element below the coils. The heater element was easily unplugged from it's two connectors. I tested the unit with an ohm meter and it indicated it was open (infinity resistance). I then knew it was bad. I replaced it with a new unit and put everything back together in reverse order taking care to use the same screws. The fridge appears to be back in working order.

SOURCE: WR55X10415 on GE None of the panel lights are on. no water no ice

Before you go too far lets check the wiring harness. Your model is a Profile or Artica and model number? I would not buy anything until I traced out the wiring. You may have plulled the pinplug at lower left hand of door near floor and behind kick plate. Sea Breeze

If you are talking about the ice/water dispenser palnel, on my PSF26NGPABB Arctica it just pulled off. there is double sided tape all the way around it and I used a thin, sharp knife to cut it as I pulled the panel off.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Refrigerator/freezer,

Usually Kenmore refrigerators are made to be very solid. Just like all their parts The white panel is usually not adhered to the stainless panel. Mostly it is still staying on because it has been fitted there for a while and has become kind of stuck to the space which it has stayed.
EAsiest way out is by allowing or putting some sort of greasy substange most likely oil and let it seep through the sides of the white plastic so it can create some friction between the plastic and the panel and the plastic will slip right off. Here is a picture of the assembly parts for the door handlerockmeister_0.jpg
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Our refrigerator stopped making ice. The water comes out fine. How do we correct this problem?


There are two sides to the water control valve=> WR57X10051 Dual Water Control Valve It's possible the side for the ice maker has failed. Try filling the ice maker with tap water and allow it to freeze. If the ice drops after freezing and the ice maker does not refill this will point to needing replace the WR57X10051 Dual Water Control Valve If the ice maker does nothing then that points to the ice maker itself=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly I will be here should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

My touch pad keeps freezing up. To clear the issue I have to unplug the unit for 20 seconds or so, then it works for about 5 - 10 uses, then freezes up again. Any idea which part is bad?


Sadly on these models, GE does not make separate parts available for the controllers, such as the keypad or touch screen, etc.

So when the keypad or display, etc., has a problem, you have to replace the whole control panel subassembly. It's reference number 23 in this exploded view.

The part number is WB07X11113 and you can get it for $586.37 from the Pros here. They're our favorite supplier.

But there is someone called Appliance Guru on eBay who has them new for $320 here.

In cases like this, you might want to consider complaining to GE customer service here . Maybe they'll work with you if it's not too far out of warranty.

Otherwise, you might check eBay. Often you can get a replacement oven for less than the part price. As long as it works.

In case you or someone you know might want to replace the sub assembly, at our Web site , we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you remove your smart board and PC supporter (with connections similar to the photo below) and put them on the new subassembly.

Some connectors on the relays have a lock:

I have a GE Spacemaker XL1800 Adora Microwave (manufactured in 2004) and the light bulb went out but I can't located it to replace it. Where is it located? Thanks


If it is meant to be user replaceable, then your owner's manual will cover it.

If not, then you may need to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Either way, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

Adora Space maker XL1800 has problem right now.. it says F3....i bought microwaver since 2004... i cant find trouble shoot book.. i need to know what it is F3?? thanks, Tim Lavelle...


F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace a separately available keypad yourself, I have uploaded a
handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs nationwide.

But please note that for some GE models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

My GE Adora side by side will only dispense crushed ice...the buttons seem to be working, as in the light comes on each button when pushed. But only crushed ice!


Turn off icemaker. Remove ice bin, empty it, rinse with warm water and leave to dry overnight.
If this did not help - check solenoid in the freezer behind the ice bin, make sure it's not stuck and has continuity. If all checked out ok, but still no cubed ice - control board or interface board may need replacement, and you'll need a professional to diagnose that.

Good luck,

Most of the time it is the half of the dual water control valve on rear of refrigerator. The part number Click Here=> WR57X10032 Usually the coil on that side will go bad before buttons or controls. You can test that side by setting a test meter on AC voltage and you should read 120 volts while someone presses dispense water on front. There are two sides one plugs into icemaker side and other water dispenser. When replaced they both come as a kit.
