Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

Electrical strap connecting module to housing selector

I followed the advise on "fixya" for replacing my water paddle actuator but in the process the "strap" or wire connecting the main part to the electrical part of the housing that allows you to select the options became loose. It is unclear to me how to reattach.

Bergrey,
Model # is always a good start. Which end came loose? Look on the ribbon and you will see where it is written top or up, that is if it pulled loose from the board located in the dispenser housing in the door itself. If you pulled it loose from the user interface board (in the frame that mounts on the outside with the buttons on it) get a good light and look inside the connector socket. Inside the socket you should be able to see the metal contact surfaces. Make sure the metal contact surfaces of the ribbon mate to the socket metal contact surfaces and you are in business again. On the user interface end can be connected either way without damage but will only work if plugged in correct.
I hope this helped and please don't forget to rate me if it did.

How to remove water filter paddle for ge fridge


From the looks of the illustration you'll have to first pop the trim off from around the dispenser area using a small flat head screw driver. Once that is done remove the control panel, which is sometimes held there in place with a screw from bottom area of the board. Lift the board out of the retainer that holds it in place and you disconnect any wiring to remove it completely. Once that is out of the way you should have access to the paddle to replace it. Be sure that the machine is unplugged when you start, don't want to get shocked

Tip

Dryer Cord and Wiring Dryer 3 Wire or 4 Wire


If you have an electric dryer and need to change the style of cord that you have on the dryer on if you just need to install a cord on a new dryer, you may have questions about where the wires need to go. This tip will help you to figure these questions out.

Remember to ALWAYS make sure that all power is disconnected BEFORE beginning your work!!

On the back of your dryer will be a cover plate that will have the wiring connection lugs behind it. A screw or two will need to be removed to expose the connection point. Always remember to reinstall the cover after you have finished your connections.

If you have a 3 wire cord the plug will look like this.

You will have a red wire, a white wire, and a black wire, on the other end from the plug.
The black and red wires will go on the two ends to the matching colors. The white wire will go in the center. If you have a bonding strap make sure that you jumper that from the center lug to the frame of the dryer. If you do not have a bonding strap, then make sure to make one out of #10 ga. wire and a couple of crimp rings. Green wire is preferable.

The connection will look something like this.

If you have a 4 wire cord the plug will look like this

26e1a27.jpg

Here again, you will have the red, white, and black wires. This cord will also have a green wire. This wire gets connected directly to the frame of the dryer. With this cord, you do not need the bonding strap or wire. If you are converting from a 3 wire to a 4 wire then remove the old bonding strap if there is one there.

This connection will look something like this.

9da3779.jpg

When converting from a 3 wire to a 4 wire you just REMOVE the bonding strap or wire and hook the green wire to the frame. If you are converting from a 4 wire to a 3 wire then you ADD the bonding strap or wire. It gets hooked from the center lug to the frame.

Always make sure that the outlet that you are plugging into is wire correctly also. The black and red are each 110 volt legs that have a voltage of 220 volts across them. The black and the red wires need to be wired to a double pole 30 amp. circuit breaker. The wiring needs to be a minimum of 10 ga. wire. The white or neutral wire goes to the neutral bar in the power panel and the green wire goes to the ground bar in the power panel.

By following this tip you should be able to hookup a new dryer or convert your existing dryer cord. Recheck all your connections before turning the power back on to the dryer.

The water heater (Reliance Elec 501) does not turn on, This happened on the same day that our whole apartment lost power due to tripped main switch.n I reset main but water heater does not respond,...


Two-element water heater is 240Volts.
No hot water means: ECO reset button tripped, upper element bad, upper thermostat bad, or 240Volts is not reaching water heater.
Circuit breaker can be delivering power on one leg of the 240V circuit, so water heater appears to have electricity but is only receiving 120V.
Test for 240volts across top two screws on upper thermostat.
Look for loose wires and burned connections.
Push in reset button real hard.
Replace both upper and lower thermostats.
Remove wires and test upper element for continuity.

I have a three prong plug in connected to my dryer and need to connect a four prong one but dont know which wire is which.


The following link explains step-by-step how to install a power cord to your appliance:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

The main difference in these two configurations is how the Ground wire (GREEN or BARE COPPER) and Neutral (WHITE) wires are terminated at the terminal block on the back of the dryer. In a 3-wire configuration Ground and Neutral are connected together via strapping option. In a 4-wire configuration these two wires are independent of each other and are not terminated together.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

Ice and water dispenser stopped working


Welcome to the computer world. When depressed, the paddle actuates a switch attached to the bracket above. The switch sends a low voltage signal to a small circuit board mouted right behind the display. A computer chip on that small board communicates with another chip on the main control board mounted in the rear wall. Your situation could be a bad actuator switch, a broken paddle tab, possibly a bad door switch (the fresh food doors must be closed to dispense), or a bad electronic control.

Broken water actuator


Hi this is tech crazy
the solution to the problem is

You should be able to replace this part yourself. Follow these steps to replace the water actuator:
  1. Unplug the refrigerator to completely disconnect electrical power. Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator.
  2. Remove the drip tray (Key 23 in the image below) from the bottom of the dispenser.
  3. Remove the screws (Key 43) from the bottom of the dispenser module cover (Key 4). NOTE: You model may not have screws at the bottom of the dispenser cover. If not, push down on the top of the dispenser cover and pry out on the bottom of the cover with a flat tip screw driver to remove it.
  4. Pull to dispenser module cover up to release the top clips and remove this cover and set it aside.
  5. Remove the screws (Key 17) that are on each side of the dispenser module (Key 8).
  6. Carefully pull the dispenser module out slightly from the door. It will have wires attached. Pay attention to how the water tube and the ice door assembly are positioned. Pull this module out far enough to remove and replace your water actuator (Key 24).
Reverse the above process for reassembly.

I had the same problem with my water dispenser and since they were willing to sell me a part but provided no directions and I couldn't locate any I decided to make my own for those who might need them. Here is a link to a PDF I made, hope it helps.

Before starting this job I would also like to warn all to please be save and UNPLUG the fridge. The whole job took me less then 30 minutes and I doubt anything will go bad in that amount of time.
