Bryan, Sorry, my script was sor bad I could not make it out.
It is GS5SHAXTO01
OK, no water
Yes, I do, it is in the garage.
Sounds great BUT, the battery to tne volt meter is bad, and I am alone
SO, I will get the battery the wait for my wife or friend. My wife will not be home till 7pm from work. My buddy works from home, so I do not know if he will be available. As soon as I get it done, I will get back to you. Thanks Jerry
Bryan, put battery in meter it reads 1, won't turn off. I have the compressor cover removed. It looks like the solinoid terminals are towards the front of the frig.
I figured out how to dismount the bracket to get to the terminals. But I am unsure of my meter. No matter what setting I have it on, it reads 1 . It gets banged around a lot. When my wife comes home I will check the terminals and see what happens. If you do not hear from me again, tonight, I have stopped the project till Tuesday. LONG weekend.
Yes, it is didital.
I leaned a pair of pliers on the water dispenser lever. Checked the solidoid. I could feel it running, but did not get a reading. Do not know if it is me or the meter. I will get another from my friend, and ask him to do the dirty work. :)
IF you don't hear from me tomorrow, I will back on Tuesday.
okay this is a difficult job, first you need to take the dispenser apart so you can feed the new line down through the door. what I usually do is connect the old line with the new one with something like a dowel that fits real tight into the lines and wont come loose when pull the new line down through the door. the trick is to push it from the top and pull it through from the bottom. this can be a tight fit going through but its the best way I've found to do it. you cant really tape them together and pull it through it will come loose and get stuck. you need to feed this gently through . you will have to cut the top black part off the old one to put these together. make sure you leave enough hose to connect them together. go slow and feed it gently so it doesn't get caught up inside the door or the hinge at the bottom. thats how I do these. hope that helps, thanks , Bryan
Stopped loading the truck for lunch and checked my mail. Would you have a part number or is this somehting I can get at the big box stores?
Can you tell me how to get the dispenser cover off? OR does that consitiute another question.\
I recieved the parts from online. Now for the dirty work.
You suggested a putty knife would pop off the front of the dispenser faciad. Mine has two screws under the little tray. Are there more than two? Here is a picture, the dark circles at the top are magnets on the fridge.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX is coming over in the morning to help.
Thanks again for the insight.
My buddy could not make it yesterday, so my wife is helping today. We cannot get the panel off. So we startted feeding the tube down, but it =tops a few inches down. SO, if we need to pull the panel off, we have tried putty knifes to no avail. Any clues I attached a picture.for review.
I guess perseverance is the way to go.
We pull at the connection to see if it will come apart.
We have a dowel inside and tight plus a wrap of shipping tape.
How much pressure are you talking about on both ends?
Significant or a tad more the light?
well moving it up and down and wiggling it is the best way to pull it through. it sounds like its getting caught on something inside the door. is the tape catching ? can you tell ? sometimes this takes a bit of force. like I said this is not an easy thing to do. try spinning in a bit also
OK SUCCESS!! Just need an extra push with a stronger pull. Have feed through, Next, put back together.
By the way, this model had no nozzle, just a hose around a bracket.
Could have just used plain tubing, but how the hell would you know that?
No sweat, thank you very, very much.
Enjoy the rest of y ou weekend.
