The answer could well be Yes. Ideally you should reoplace the harness anyway. The fridge controls and air valve shutter (see below) will also be wired via the harness.

First thing to try is Powering off the FF at the mains supply and leaving it standing for 30 minutes. Make sure that you do not open any of the doors or touch any of the controls during this time. Then reconnect the power and wait for 30 to 60 minutes to see if the fault remains or is cured. Try completely defrosting the FF as despite common belief these units are not totally frost free.

In side by sides if the freezer side is working OK and the fridge side is not working correctly it means that air ducting has iced up or the air vent from the freezing unit to the fridge compartment has stuck in the closed or partially closed position which causes the fridge to not be any where near as cool as it should be. If it is too cold then the vent is stuck in the open position and the fridge temperature will continue to fall and become the same as the freezer, thereby freezing the contents of the fridge compartment. It can also get stuck in another position so that if the temperature is adjusted on the front panel then nothing happens to the temperature in the fridge compartment. The vent, which is usually at the top of the fridge compartment on the side where it joins the freezer compartment, is controlled by a small sync motor and either the motor has become faulty, the control module is faulty or the vent is iced up. It can be come iced up by putting too many hot items in the fridge so the steam condenses and freezes the vent in position and then the motor cannot open or close it causing it and / or the control module to become faulty. Other times it is just old age that causes the motor and / or the control module to fail. If the sync motor and vent are working OK then there may be a fault with the fridge temperature sensor or main on board controller that will mean that the sensor or the controller will need replacing

U line ice maker is overflowing water


This is usually caused by a bad water inlet valve. This part is usually found behind the fridge at the bottom behind a panel on the fridge itself. It has 1-2 water lines running into it and 1-2 wire harnesses connected. You need to turn off the water going into the fridge and cut the power to the fridge to access this part. You can buy a new one at a local appliance parts store or online.

Ge profile refrig - watrer dispenser does not deliver water. Ice maker works fine. What is wrong?


Water solenoid at the rear of the fridge has failed, there is two or three solenoids there, locate the one that does water feed to the door (not ice maker) and do a load test or just replace. Also make sure you dont have a filter safety cut-off, check filter cond and it is located perfectly in housing, check lines inside and outside fridge unit for obstructions. Good luck.

Ice maker hose running, not shutting off when ice tray is full causeing it to over flow. What can be done? Model CSX24D side by side


Replace the water valve ( pt # WR57X10051 ) . This piece is what the wall water line connects to on the refrig . Also , due to the age of the refrig , I would suggest removing the ice maker ( 2 screws ) and inspecting the inside of the mold for coating disintegration which would cause water to seep thru the uncoated aluminum ( or bubbled coating ) causing the ice maker to leak , but , appear to be overfilling . In this case , replace the ice maker instead .

My Whirlpool side-by-side fridge is only making about 4 ice cubes every 12 hours. Any ideas on what maybe wrong?


I would suggest replaceing the water valve , behind the refrig , where the wall water line connects to , on the refrig , AND remove the front kick plate , and clean the coils on the bottom , of dust , lint pet hair , etc . If your ice maker cycles , at least 8 cubes at a time , should dump . If only 4 , then not enough water is going into the ice maker .

Ice maker doesn't work


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps the cubes , but doesn't fill with water , replace the water inlet valve ( the piece that the wall water line connects to on the fridge ) . Also check to be sure that the fill tube from the back of the freezer to the ice maker , isn't blocked with ice , as this is caused by a seeping bad water valve . If the ice maker doesn't dump the cubes , after freezing , then replace the ice maker . Also check to make sure the coils under the front of the refrig , are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc.

Dometic model ndr1292.my water tube for ice maker is falling apart.how do i replace it?


it depends on whether you can get to the back of refrig from the out side. if you are lucky enough to have 2 access panels behind the refrig you are able to do it without removing refrig. i just replaced mine. i bought an ice maker kit at home depot and just used the hose and fittings cutting the hose to size. if you are in cold weather i would recommend using the heater wires that are wrapped arount the old tube. they keep the water from freezing. hope this helps.

Water leak where hose meets refrigerator connector


I had a similar problem several years ago with water leaking on the floor at behind the fridge. Turned out to be the gasket at a connection the same size as a garden hose at the water valve, so I used a garden hose washer and that did the trick. That was on a Whirlpool vintage about 1990. Can't say what the model was.
