Question about Refrigerators

REAR BEARINGS I just bought a new kit to fix the rear bearings on my dryer but it didn't come with instructions. I did find a diagram on line but I can't find instruction. Only thing I am not sure about is where the one little bearing goes and what is the tube of liquid for. By looking at the picture I am sure I can do this. I did figure out how to take everything apart :)matter of fact I am working on another dryer also.I am replacing the blower fan. My husband won't get off the sofa so I really don't want to buy a new dry when I have two that can be fixed. So I am going to do this and show him .

YOU GO!!!! thetube of grease(lube) is going to be used after your done installing the plastic cup that holds the rear bearing, your gonna fill that plastic "cup" with the lube fill it to the top you wont need it for anmything else so use as much as youd like. and for the little ball bearing in the kit, that actually goes behind the "cup" ( youll see a little impression om the back of the cup to allow it to sit. adn is held in by the pressure of the rear mounted clip..I use a little dab of the lube on the ball bearning to hold it in place while securing it
hopefully this if a free standing dryer adn not part of alaundry unit. getting acess to thje rear of the unit will greatly ease the changing of the kit.youll see that as you remove the 2 5/16 screws hoolding hte old mounting braket in place , you nee to sorta staddle the mahine in order to hold the cup and reach the rear screrws at the same time., the only other tricky part is trying to screw th e3 screws holding the bearing post to the rear of drum, i have found that it is much easier to thread the screws into the plate, before trying to install for the first time, and oh yea if at all possible irs actually not a phillips #2 screw, that will work but might strip out a little, the correct size is a roberts bit #2(square bit)

I have a GE refrigerator water comes out but it's not making ice. Bought a new filter.model number GAL25JFXN LB

there are several possible causes for your symptom: failed water valve, failed dispenser microswitch, or the line has frozen solid where it runs close to the freezer interior approximately 4 inches from where it dispenses. push a long plastic zip-tie up the water line above the water dispenser paddle. if it stops against an ice blockage you will need the water line heater kit from GE.part#WR49X10173. If there is no blockage, remove the rear service panel and follow your supply line to the water valve...have a helper push the dispenser paddle while you feel the valve body- if there is no hum or vibration you may need a new valve#WR57X10032. things get more complicated if neither of those tips help, time to call a Tech!

Water leaking into bottom of freezer

The problem you are experiencing is normally a blocked evaporator drain line. Whether you have a side by side model or a top mount freezer the solution is relatively the same. Most top mount freezer models have a rear evaporator panel covering the aluminum evaporator coils. There are some instances where the evaporator coils are on the floor. These instructions are for top mount freezers where the rear freezer panel covers the evaporator coils. First of all, if there is an ice maker in your unit, this will have to be removed. Normally there are two screws which can be loosened and the body of the ice maker can be lifted off the screws leaving only a plug in harness to disconnect. Remove the harness either from the plug at the left wall or rear of the freezer and set it to the side. Next, remove all the screws securing the rear panel. Remove the rear panel exposing the aluminum evaporator coils. Be careful not to damage these coils as they contain the freon that cools your refrigerator. If you look closely underneath these coils, there will be ice from frozen defrosted water. Using a hair dryer and not a heat gun, melt all the ice and sop up the water with a towel. Now you will see a drain hole which is normally still blocked with ice. Pour hot water in this hole and sop it up. Keep doing this until you pour water down the hole and it drains into the evaporator drain pan either under or behind your refrigerator. Once you have unblocked this drain line, reassemble and plug the refrigerator back in. Set all controls to the middle settings and within 24 hours, your unit will be functioning correctly once again.

How can i turn off the water function on the door but not the ice, the water line keeps leaking on the back of the frig

When I had this problem the water was coming from the top right rear where the water tube feeds the ice maker. The water line INSIDE the frig that feeds the ice maker occasionally freezes up causing an obstruction which causes the water to leak out the rear. This can only happen when the icemaker activates the water feed. You can remove the tube fitting without fear because the valve that feeds water through the line is at the bottom rear of the unit. If the line is frozen inside I remove the ice bin and tray and use a hair dryer to melt the ice.
I have a similar problem with the condenser fan making a tapping/clacking noise which is also a result of ice building up on that. Wish I had a different frig but for now the hair dryer will have to do.

Error code 22 E

Error indicates the CF compartment evaporator fan is not spining at the correct RPM or the fan feedback line is open. As to trying to fix this issue yourself you would need to be able to remove the rear panel on the rear inside wall of the freezer which then would give you access to this fan. These units can be difficult in removing this rear panel and I have found using a hair dryer to heat the panel so it will conform to the bending will allow the panel to be removed without breaking the panel itself. If the evaporator fan were slowed then I would just replace it but if you did have an open fan feedback line I do think that in this case you would be better off calling in the calvary to solve the feedback issue. If you have any further questions message me back.
I await your reply
Thank you

Plum in a Amana fridge freezer

hello. I am assumming that your model has the ice and water dispenser. Not all models do. On the rear of these models with the ice and water feature you will find a small [1/4 inch] line that has to be connected to a cold water supply source. If you go to most any hardware store you can get the little kit necessary to make this connection. The kit consists of a length of 1/4 inch tubing, the connector to attach to the tube at the rear of your appliance, a valve and a tapping kit to tap into your closest cold water source. If the fridge is near the kitchen sink, you may choose to connect under the sink. If not, make sure you purchase a kit with enough 1/4 inch tubing to reach your nearest cold water pipe. J.

Freezer fan making vibrating noise.

Good day,
You will have to remove the rear panel in the freezer compartment to check the motor.
Three possibilities. One, ice is on the blade causing the imbalance, two the blade is cracked or one of it's wings has broken off or lastly, the bearings in the motor have failed.
In the last 2 cases, replace the motor or blade as needed.
It is best to replace the blade as well, if you are installing a new motor.
The parts are available at any decent sized appliance parts house.

Thank you for using FixYa

There is a constant noise coming from inside the unit.

Good day,
Beside the ice maker, there is only one moving part inside the machine that could make noise. Shut the ice maker off( better yet remove) and test. If no luck, then it is the evaporator fan motor, located in the freezer compartment and accessed by removing the rear panel.
That motor sits in a bracket, and floats on rubber grommets.
Remove the bracket, after disconnecting the power, and check.
If the motor has bad bearings, replace, and as well, buy new rubber grommets and fan blade as well, if available.

Kenmore colspot freezer drain line keeps freezing

Hi, The defrost drain behind the rear freezer panel is plugged. Remove the rear panel and clear the ice away from the drain. Then you will need to flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is open.
Some models require an after market drain heat kit.
Please get me your model # and I can look this up to let you know if you need that heat kit.

Attempted install of ice maker on fridgidaire model GLRT183TDW3. Picture of water valve doesn't look exactly like what I received with the kit. Cannot tell if I put the right tube in the right hole. The...

sound like you may be backwards. usually the copper supply line is threaded, it is the one attched to the rear of valve and shows outside the rear cover when all is closed up. some directions are generic for all refrigerators, did you get the icemaker from frigidaire with their specific instructions?
