The ballast is right in the middle. you should see an electrical cord. open the 2 screws from the ballast cover. then unscrew the top and bottom screw from the ballast. the ballast should come off. cut the wires closer to the ballast, so that you can identify the wire with the new ballast, which will have the same color scheme.

Drip pan


The drip pan is located behind the toe panel (grille) at the bottom. The pan should be located in the left side. If you have auto defrost, the pan may or may not have water in it. It is likely to have accumulated grunge which can be removed by a good wash and rinse, being careful to avoid breaking the pan during cleaning. Reinstallation is the reverse of removal.

Water leaking from blue part on left hand side


Hi debyspauldin,

Water on floor outside the refrigerator is often caused by the drain pan. There are some ways on how to correct this issue, either you clean the pan and reposition the tray. In addition, here are some tips that you can apply to solve this problem. Please follow the steps below.

Before conducting any repair, please remember your safety. Unplug the machine or shut off the power at the breaker panel to avoid any electric shock.

1. Remove the drain pan and clean it with a warm soapy water or water and baking soda.
--> the drain pan is located at the bottom of the refrigerator behind the front grill.
--> Please remove the grill which snaps into place. Hold the drain pan while pulling slightly upward and forward.

2. If you noticed that the pan is too closed to the compressor please reposition the tray.

3. You may also try to check water invelt valve. It is located behind the refrigerator. Look for a water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source. Now disconnect the supply line. It has screws so you need to remove them.

4. The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Before disconnecting the wires please label the wire placement on the water inlet valve.

5. The wires are connected to the terminal with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals ( don't pull on the wire ). You can use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Please check if the connectors and terminals has corrosion. If corroded they should be replaced.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Remove the pan and wash it. Use a mixture of warm, soapy water and bleach to kill the mold.
Reinstall the pan and the grill.
Locate the coils. They look like thin, black radiators and may be underneath the fridge or attached to the back.
If the coils are on the back, pull the refrigerator away from the wall, then vacuum the dusty coils, using the brush and crevice attachments. Reinstall the refrigerator grill.
If the coils are underneath, pull off the grill and remove the drip pan. Vacuum the dusty coils, using the crevice attachment to get between them. Take care not to damage the delicate coils. Reinstall the refrigerator grill.

I need to replace the ballast on my GDM 12 freezer and I need to know where the balast is located


The ballast is located on the bottom inside wall where the compressor is located. Its usaually mounted, and can be easily removed and replaced. The ballast is rectangular in shape and has a few wires protruding from each end. To replace simply dismount the bad ballast and clip the wires. Match the ballast to a new one, reattach the wires using wire nuts, and remount ballast.

Vacuum condenser light of sub zero 650 is on - how to clean it


We recommend vacuuming your condenser every 3 - 6 months. Cleaning the condenser is important for the overall operations of the unit including cooling functions. A dirty condenser may lead to warm temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer. It may also cause the unit to run excessively. It may contribute to condensation or frost inside of the compartments. If the condenser is not cleaned properly it may even cause premature failure of mechanical components in the unit. Condenser Cleaning - All Models Before cleaning the unit, shut the electricity off at the control panel. When you clean the condenser, wear gloves to avoid injury from the sharp condenser fins. Use a soft bristle brush and vacuum to remove dust and lint from the condenser. To avoid bending the condenser fins, be sure to vacuum in the direction of the fins, up and down. Clean the condenser every three to six months or sooner if you have pets. 600 Series Framed and Stainless Steel louvered grilles: First remove the grille screws located at the bottom of the grille. Tilt the top of the grille forward and release the springs from behind the grille, then lift off. Overlay Panel Grille: To remove, lift up then pull out at the bottom and down to release from its mounting bracket. Remove the two black screws in the lowest louver of the grille. Tilt the bottom of the grille out and away. It will release from the top of the grille. Model 601RG Stainless Steel Grille: Remove in a similar fashion as the overlay grille panel. 700 Series All Units: At the bottom of the unit, remove the four screws holding the kick plate/grille in place. It will then slide forward, giving you access to the condenser area. 400 Series 424/424FS At the bottom of the unit, remove the screws holding the kick plate. The condenser is located behind. 427/427R: Remove the four screws holding the kick plate/grille in place. It will then slide forward, giving you access to the condenser area. 430: First remove the screws located at the bottom of the grille. NOTE: These screws (Phillips head) are accessed with the door open. Tilt the top of the grille forward and release the springs from behind the grille, then lift off. 200 Series 245, 249, 315W Remove the kick plate at the bottom of the unit, giving you access to the condenser area.

Freezer/Evaporator motor replacement


On my Kenmore bottom freezer, the evaporator fan motor is located behind a grill in the top center of the freezer compartment.  Remove drawers and door.  Pop off the grill by pushing on the tab in the center of the grill and then dislodging one side.  If you see the fan and confirm it isn't working, then you will have to remove the  icemaker.  Disconnect the plug at the rear of the icemaker by pressing on both sides of the plug and pulling.  Then remove the three screws holding the icemaker and remove the icemaker (it will probably have water in it, not ice). 
Push the icemaker female plug through the back panel.
Remove the temp sensor cover on the upper right side of the panel.  Careful.  You need to pop the cover loose, then slide the cover off the sensor. 
Now remove the four screws holding the back panel and remove it.  Try not to let the panel hit the evaporator fins, which are directly behind the panel.  Also, you'll have to be careful to work the temp sensor up over the top of the panel.
You have clear access to the evap fan now.  Unsnap the temp sensor from the tubing on the right.  Disconnect the  evap fan wiring (left side) and another connector on the right.  Remove two screws, and you have the evap fan assembly in your hand.  Pull the fan blade off the motor shaft (friction fit) and loosen the motor retaining clip. 
Voila! You have the old motor in your hand.
Good luck.
