I need to know how to remove the ice maker compartment to throw out all old cubes.


Hello Karla Shelton,

A wee little ice can LOCK your ice bin in place!!

How to remove the bin would depend ENTIRELY on
the MAKE & MODEL of your refrigerator...

They key to success... BE GENTLE... even if the freezer
has a solid grip (frozen in (more common on door bins)).

If it is stuck good & solid... BEFORE you decide
to take a PRY, Crowbar or WRECKING BAR to your
ice-bin... think soft breakable "PLASTIC"...

BETTER to DEFROST your entire refrigerator
than to break that bin.

Check your parts/spares retailers to see if it is even
POSSIBLE to REPLACE...

Never use a HEATER on the soft plastics.

Patience & care...

Make sure the bin is clean & dry before putting it back.

Hope this helps.

How can I stop the ice build up in my bottom mount fridge?


Fridge freezing up- and no fan or air circulation:

AT TIMES The fan usually stops working due to ice obstruction when the defrost terminator has gone out and u get ice build up? u can check the terminator with a multi meter for continuity but do not check at room temperature. stick the terminator in cup of ice water for 20 minutes then check it for continuity, should be closed when cold and open at room temperature.
May also need to check the defrost timer, u can get by and test manually by placing a small screw driver into the tiny slot or hole underneath the timer and turn slowly clockwise till u hear 1 click. this will engage ur defrost cycle in about 15 minutes u should be able to come back and feel the heat in freezer as it melts the ice providing ur terminator is not bad?
Another way to test it is with a multi meter. Remove timer it from fridge and you will see 4 prongs numbered 2,1,4,3 in that order. Place ur meter prong on prong 1 & 3 (if your fridge has a capacitor wired in series with the windings, then u check for micro fares rather than OHMS) If u cannot confirm this test, still try the next.
Take ur meter prong and connect to prong 1 & 4, it should read resistance or ohms ( closed) now remove prongs and place on prong 1 & 2, this should now read infinity or open (no ohms) now take a small screwdriver place it in the tiny hole or slot under the timer. Turn it clockwise slowly till u hear 1 click. Now ur 1& 2 should read closed ( showing ohms or resistance) now place meter prongs on 1 & 4 and you it should now show open ( or no resistance - no ohms) this is how u know ur timer is good, Remember when testing for ohms ADJUST meter to use a high ohms rating in the thousands as the resistance is very high in OHMS. And adjusting to low ohms rating may give a false reading or not show the proper resistance..

Another item to check with a meter is the heating element itself. Located under the evaporator coils. It should show continuity or resistance OHMS WHEN TESTED AT BOTH ENDS OF THE PRONGS .

Lastly check the cold control thermostat with a meter for both OHMS and volts ( VOLTS is a live test with fridge plugged in so be careful) It must show 110 volts. An open or thermostat that reads infinity will not allow the proper cooling and defrosting cycles to operate and may in fact stop anything from happening as if there is no power to the unit?

ALSO CHECK THE AIR FLOW VENT SYSTEM At times it can get stuck to far closed or open. Some units feature a digital electric adjusting vent system while others are manually set. Check for any ice build up or other obstruction in the vent damper, see if u can manually open or close it. Some times when u have the settings set to the highest it closes off one area while allowing to much cold air flow to the other area!












Fridge door walls are very hot:

the reason the outer side of the door seal area is getting hot is the compressor is over heating, probably the condenser fan motor to your compressor is bad.
It should be a little warm but not hot. they don't use heaters anymore ( some older models still use heaters) around the doors, instead they use the condenser coils to remove condensation and moister, you might want to check your condenser coils on the bottom or back of fridge to see if they need cleaning
If the condenser coils/condenser fan are all plugged up they need cleaning and/or the condenser may fail or has failed..

The ones that use an electric heater will have an "energy saver" switch that will turn it off.

My frigidaire gas range has a F90 on it when I tried the self cleaning oven feature


F90 Maximum oven door unlock time exceeded.
F91 Maximum oven door unlock attempts exceeded.
F92 Maximum oven door open time exceeded.
F93 Maximum oven door lock time exceeded.
F94 Maximum oven door lock attempts exceeded.


1. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check the wiring between EOC & Lock Motor Micro Switch.

2. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.

3. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.

4. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

5. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Lock Motor continuously runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

6. (F92, 93 & 94) Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.

7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.


F90 is a door lock code, Try this...
unplug the range.
wait 1 minute.
turn the range back on,
then while holding in on the oven door.
start another self clean.
wait 2 minutes.
then cancel the self clean.

do not release the door until the door lock light goes out.

Won't fill with water


Hi.

Check the following:

Inlet hose: ensure that is not kinked.

Float switch: ensure is not stuck in high position, the switch must be tested by a technician, bypassing it, or reading impedance.

The inlet valve: at the back side of the dishwasher, it must be tested reading continuity on solenoid. Dual valves can also be tested swapping contacts between hot and cold valve.

The door lock: the door micro switch can prevent the machine from cycling, it is tested similarly to float switch (bypass or read impedance).

The electronic control: it is replaced when everything else is ok. It can be tested at component level or reading volts, usually the tech will just replace it when there is no other fault.

The lower oven door locked shut. Accidently pushed wrong button & lower oven locked and I can not get it to open.


stop pushing all the buttons. Turn the power off for a few min. It should un lock when power is back. If not set clock, set oven into clean cycle, wate a few min then hit cancle. wate till door unlocks. If nothing happens make sure you dident hit the child lock button. It looks like a pad lock on touch pannel. push and hold it to unlock. Re try clean cycle. let it lock then wate ,then cancle .

Why are there white flakes in the ice from my icemaker?


The flakes are contaminants (minerals) in the water. Typically a sign of hard water, such as well water. A GOOD filter is highly recommended to control the contaminants, and must be replaced often for best results. Most hardware outlets as well as appliance dealers offer filters just for this application and should make the ice taste better. While the minerals are usually harmless and some even claim they're beneficial, you should have your water tested periodically if on a well just to be safe.

Particles in ice cubes


Most new water/ice systems have break-in procedures in the manual, including flush a couple gallons of water through the water dispenser and disposing the first 24hrs of ice.

Are the particles present in the filtered water before adding ice? If so, you can probably assume the contamination is from the water tank so you should flush several gallons of water through the system to get rid. If the particles are present after adding ice, try pulling out the ice bin and dumping the ice.

Wife was trying to clean (self cleaning oven) and after setting timer the oven door will not lock and it will now not let us do anything now and it shows a f9 code and when i press bake control, dr shows...


The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.
