Hey Tyler, I tried to get you the other day, but some reason the "Ask Me A New Question" link did not appear. I had to go back to an old question. Anyway, guy has french door bottom mount Kitchenaid refrigerator. It is freezing up the fresh food. You countrol the thing through the fountain/dispenser pad. I thought maybe the thermister (to close the damper assembly) for the refrigerator would be easy to find, but I didn't see it and I don't see one on the parts list of the refrigerator liner. (Give you more info in a minute). The only vents I can detect seem to be in the back left and right corners under the deli drawer. There is a slide on the crisper, but that is some humidity control thing, I think. Do you know where the fridge thermister is? The freezer one is clearly visible on the evaporator cover in the freezer.

Have Kenmore side by side with Ice and chilled water through

Have Kenmore side by side with Ice and chilled water through the door. Freezer doesn't appear to be freezing only 40 degree F. on thermometer after 25 mins,. Also no water through the door ice dispenser turns and kicks out ice but ice is very wet (thawing I would guess) have checked to make sure the door is sealed Now. But the pump does not actuate when water is asked for. Have removed two small aluminum panels and the fan cover (dusty not completely clogged) compressor fan is running. Also no water is leaking for the water lines and tube in the freezer to fill ice tray is not clogged. Model #unknownJA: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: 15 to 20 and we do know the exact modelJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: if repair is simple enough but I'm leaning towards a recharge for the compressor, it that's the problem then no I will not attempt.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: Can't understand how "no water though the door" and "freezer not cold enough" are related to "one" problem.

We have a GE XL44 range/oven - specific model number is

Hello,We have a GE XL44 range/oven - specific model number is ***** The ignitor went out and we understand we need to purchase a replacement WB2X9154. The old one in here was spliced in using apparently porcelain nuts. The are however taped with what looks like standard electrical tape. Is the tape ok to use in an oven, or is there a special tape necessary? There is a "burner tube" (not sure what to call it) that is at the top of the oven. This has never worked....is it somehow connected to this ignitor that we need, or is that a separate issue.??
