SOURCE: Kenmore Coldspot Ice maker is not working on our side by side refrigerator

This is a Whirlpool made Kenmore there fore from what your telling me about your ice maker I'm pretty sure it's the ice maker motor module. If you take the cover off the ice maker you will see a large white gear in the center is a little two headed pin to keep the gear in place, if the pin is broke or twisted in any way that is your problem and you will need a new icemaker motor module. Check first and let me know then I will tell you how to install it, it's VERY easy and only takes 15mins. Hit me up when you find out hope I helped.

Own the same model, the icemaker and the dispenser work properly but the leak is top center of the refrigerator compartment.

SOURCE: Maytag Performa Bottom Freezer refrigerator making weird noises

This can be due to low supply voltage, causing the compressor thermal overload to trip out. Therefore when this happens the compressor gets hot and it keeps trying to start but fails. It can also be a faulty starter relay, which is located in the conncetion box of the compressor and is very simple to replace.

Hi you need to replace the main motherboard, depending on the age you should call GE if they service your area they will discount the cost of the repair if it qualifies and its cheaper than doing it yourself, if it doesnt qualify then the board usually is around $175.00 just to buy not including to install if you have it installed, this needs to be done quickly prolonged use with bad motherboard on this model will damage sealed system, ruining the entire refrigerator. If you need further assistance let me know.

Frigidaire fridge freezer not getting cold


Louise, this is a big area. I would switch off the fridge, look at the back where you see the" box things". You should see a timer which is white or black (wires comming out of it).. It has a short type of knob which can be turned manually clockwise.. Turn about a 1/4 turn then try and switch on again. If not, thermostat will be the problem. Assuming you never disrupted any wires.

My Magic Chef Mini Fridge just stopped but the compressor is hot.


ok In the rear bottom where the wires plug into the compressor. There will be a plastic cover plate over the connecting wires. Remove it. Unplug the white wire. note the white wire was plugged into a small black box (3/4"x3/4") pull the black box out. It is connected by 2 prongs. If you open this up you will find a small metal disk that looks like a watch battery. pop it out and clean the contacts. put it all back together and it should work fine. I believe it is the thermostat and many times gets bad contacts and can even crack over time. The compressor will "click" on but the bad thermostat tells it "no"

Fridge Condensation


Check the seal of the rubber gasket, if there are improper seal of the magnet, pour hot water along it to soften the rubber. (be careful when handling hot water). When the rubber is soften, try to stretch it a little by pulling it. close the door and the magnet will keep the seal in place.

Compact electrolux fridge has developed a noise


That little white box is a relay called a PTC relay. Depending on the warranty if you have it or the previous owner and didn't transfer then it needs to be replaced.

The part is about 25 dollars and pretty straight forward to replace. Just remove and take to appliance parts house they should be able to find one for that unit. If you go to a RV dealer I am afraid they will charge you some high dollar amount blaming it on the type of fridge you are dealing with. But this is just a apartment size type so nothing unique about it. let me know how it goes ken

Water in bottom of refrigerator


WARNING-It is a condition for the reader to take full responsability in attempting repairs and author shall not be responsible or liable for any damages. If you have no knowledge or experience to do this repair do not attempt it.

I have had the same issue with Fisher Paykel Active Smart fridge . This can be due to:
1) 12Volt fan in freezer is not functioning.
To test: open freezer door, place a magnet on magnet switch at the bottom of freezer where door seals(white plastic rectangle) It takes few seconds for fan to rev up so move magnet slowly until switch on. You can also close door and listen carefully if fan starts if unsure.
If fan works go to 2) 3)as defrosting resistance can be the trouble

2)If fan does not work . UNPLUG FRIDGE at the main plug
Empty freezer and defrost it if too icy (do not use sharp objects). Then on back panel you will see two holes on top. Put two hook tool and pull down and slightly forward until top lip is free. This is hard to do but the plastic panel is very strong so you can apply a bit of force there!!!
On the second panel is the fan, check wires are not broken (common cause of failure). unplug fan, you can check fan on 12V battery (+red). Buy a new fan if faulty and put freezer panel back.
3) If fan OK and you see a lot of ice on condenser (do not remove it by force, just let it melt completely) then the resistance is the cause of you trouble. It is delicate to remove and make sure FRIDGE IS UNPLUGGED! Do not force anything as condenser is very fragile and if you damaged it, your fridge can go straight to the dump. You can test the resistance with an Ohm meter to make sure internal resistance is broken or not. If broken replace it and your fridge will be fixed. If not broken then trouble is either with on board computer (very seldom) or the thermistance.

A/c wiring


The Red/White comes from the AC amplifier into the AC magnet clutch, from termianl 13.

The White/Blue wire goes back from the AC magnet clutch to the AC amplifier, terminal 14

The Black/White wire goes to two places, via a splice splice, 1 is to the relay box, Fan Relay # 3, and 2 is to the AC Magnet Clutch Relay.
