Question about Whirlpool GX5FHTXVA Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
Posted by Anonymous on
Check the fan blade on the fan in the freezer. It could be an object or ice, frost, anything. If this is an Amana Whirlpool, definitely check to see if the fan blade is no longer tight on the motor shaft and has moved forward and hitting the guard in front of it. ( yes, amana whirlpool )

Remove the top hinge cover , covering the top freezer door hinge , and unplug the visible receptical . This removes power to the dispensor and dorr . Using a butter knife between the grill and the dispensor bottom cover , push down and inward , prying the cover outward . Do this on both sides , about 1 " from each side . This pops the plastic clips off . Raise the cover to release from the upper plastic retainers . Disconnect the plug from the cover and its removed . Do this carefully , because your working with plastic . To reinstall , reconnect the plug to the dispensor cover , slide the top in place and pop the lower tabs back into place . Reinstall the top hinge plug and cover .

you might be able to get a little room
look at the bottom hinge of the door
the one you want to lower
you should see a few spacers between
the bootm of the door and the top of the hinge
as well as being able to lower the hinge pin by screwing it down

It appears your dispenser mico switch has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
