Psc23sgmdbs = frozen in dr

I have tried everything short of removing the door. Stoppage I have traced to in the dr at the thin part next to bottom of the dispenser.The interrior wall seem hard with no give. Could it be full of ice around the tube crushing it? I have tried hair dryers and hot water and melted to a point and hes not progressed any further.

    Thanks for the advice however , I think that my freeze was pretty solid and large. What I did after reading several articals about sealing the freezer (with cardboard and tape ) compartment off and leaving the dr. open to thaw out , was to go one step further and used a hairdryer to heat the inside and outside of the dr. which took about 15 minutes to thaw out this way. I have not had any problems since. I also turned the temp. to GE recomendations to help with problem. One suggestioon that I read was to put a peice of weedwacker line in the tubing to the point were the freeze may occour leaving it hang out of the spout long enough to pull out with the ice block attached to the line , then put it backafter it has been cleared. This seems to be a pretty common problem with this refg. I suspect that the reason that it takes awhile to show up is that there is a build up of ice inside of the door around the line and and if you don't thaw the door out then the freeze happen again fairly quickly. Also if there is ice around the line and a dirty filter is causing weak flow of water maay cause an icesicle effect type freeze in the line.

I fixed mine by leaving the light on the dispenser on. It took about 6 hrs, but the little heat from the light bulb was enough to defrost the water line.

My GE front loading washing machine has a locked door but is not operating correctly due to frozen pipes. Can I get the door open to retrieve my clothes? Thanks!

unplug it,remove the top lid or if it has a bottom panel that comes off either way stick your hand down to where the door lock is,on the bottom of the door lock there's a round release,pull it down and the door will unlock,next time send the model number,also you can try unplugging it for like 5 minutes,plug it back in and the door might open but if it doesn't unplug it again and feel around at the bottom of the door lock assy. pull down on the bottom ring and it will manually open the door.

Probably it doesn't lock.
Normally due to some mechanical issue on the door locker...

The fix should be, in that case, replace the door lock device.

Maytag side by side fridge freezer leaking water

Your drain plug within the evap area of the freezer is frozen, turn frig off, let sit for day or two with doors open. Once all ice has melted then take rear freezer evap cover off and pour water into try and make sure it drains, if not then unplug drain. This is usually caused by a defrost heater bad or unit not going into defrost when it's supposed to, may be main board.

How to fix a new window regulator

normally on the honda models there are two screws that need to be taken out, the inside latch area (plastic cap covering it) and the door pull (normally down in the bottom covered with a plastic cap), thin small flat blade will work to remove. once the is done you will need to pull out the latch area on the passenger door or the driver window control panel, disconnect the connectors. set the aside, next you will need a thin flat blade screw driver or flat pry bay, start at the bottom of the door to pry out the panel ( will make a loud snapping or popping noise, this is normal) once you have loosened the panel, you will need to remove the plastic covering the access to the mirror (small triangle black plastic piece). this should now allow you to set the door panel aside, check to make sure you have removed all the clips. carefully remove the plastic lining cover the door, try not to tear or rip it. now you will need to remove the glass, there are two holes the allow access to the bolts for the window, connect your Power window switch and raise or lower till you can see them ( possibly a 10 mm socket) unscrew and set aside, hold the top of the window with one hand and lower the window to separate it form the brace. tilt the front side of the window down and remove glass set aside, now there are three screws for the regulator ( normally around the center of the door) and 4 crews or bolts , two on each window track, top and bottom) remove both bolts on each side. at this point everything should be loose, you will need to twist to get all the old parts out, replace your new parts and re assemble as you have taken apart, most cases this is about three to four hours, Good Luck !!!

My fridge in my fridge freezer keeps freezing everything in it.

If the fridge side is frozen you have a door seal issue.
If the freezer side is frozen you have a defrost component issue.
Your post was not clear as to which side is frozen.

Mix max screen frozen

Next to the USB terminal at the bottom is the reset button. You need a pin or very thin object to poke in the tiny hole. This may erase everything on it but is worth a try. There is a 50% chance that this will fix it. If not then it needs to be sent back to the manufacturer for diagnosis.

Hello, If you can see the water line inside the freezer case you might try using a hair blow dryer to try to thaw it out to get water flowing again? Good Luck! Dr. Know
