Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
very minor amount of ice, less than an ounce across the entire floor liner, and none up towards the seal.
Would you kindly provide a photo and/or part #s of the pieces you suggest I change out? Thank you, John
Lastly, to access this connector, should I let the fridge fully defrost and then pull it out, lay it on it's back to get the connector line (part # XXXXX) off? Would you suggest I also get new lines on both sides of that part?
I think we'll close to complete....just a few last questions.
- So I do or do not need to defrost the whole unit prior to doing this repair?
- Are you sure I'll have enough clearance to do this repair by just propping the front end up a few inches...is that connector piece visible once the fridge is tipped up slightly?
- Does the manufacturer generally give enough slack to the plastic lines that a 1/2 inch reduction won't make the line too taut?
- Would a sometimes sticking ice door have any involvement with the bottom of the unit? We'll generally reach up and unsnag that ice door when it doesn't close on it's own...but there is no ice build-up in the ice door area (making me think this isn't a major issue.)
Am I able to save this thread (or email it to myself) so I can review later?
Hmm, when you say I don't really need to tilt the unit, is this "kick panel" in the back of the fridge as opposed to underneath in the front? Are you suggesting the wood blocks to prop it up are in the front or back? if the back, that wouldn't seem to make sense, as the water puddles in the front, the left hand side (ice door side) of the unit.
How does that kick panel come off...just a few 1/4 screws or something like that? Once I sign off, I'll go pull the unit out and hopefully what you're telling me makes perfect sense then. Thanks for your help, John
Yup, I just pulled the two plastic end-caps off and see screws on each side to get that plate off. I'll sign out now and see what that area looks like. I may get a couple small clamps to see if that will tack the two plastic ends down better. Thanks for your help. John
No problem and good luck.
