Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Can't pull off the plastic "grille" to clean the filter.

\015 How do I remove the plastic cover on the bottom of the fridge to clean the filter behind it? It seems like the plastic will break or crack if I pull on it too hard. Is there a latch or hook somewhere on the sides?\015

Answers :

I usually clean condenser coils from the back by removing the lower back panel. The cover below the door is attached by clips on each end. Usually rocking the panel up and down while pulling out at the top then bottom will loosen those clips and allow for removal.

Hi, I have a KitchenAid KSSS48QDX05 refrigerator. I am no longer getting water at the door or to ice maker. I am thinking the cause is a clogged water filter (ten years old, has never been changed). Could it be something else? In any case, I want to replace the water filter. Will I have to pull out the whole unit to get at this filter? I removed top and bottom grills, and no filter or water is visible. Thanks.

I am cleaning the condenser on my 600 series Sub zero (48 wide). I removed the outside grill on the top. Inside is another black mesh type grill with 6 screws that is over the condenser fins. I have removed the six screws but it still will not pull off to access the fins so I can vacuum. I tried vacumming through this grill and it doesn't do anything as the holes are too small to really do anything to the dust covering the condenser fins. Help!

I have a True tbb-24-48g bar refrigerator that started tripping the breaker it was on. I removed the grille and the condenser coil fins were covered in a heavy layer of dust. I had not cleaned them for a couple of years, (dumb, I know). I cleaned them off but the compressor was extremely hot. I pulled the condensation tray and had a fan blow on it until it cooled to the touch in a couple hours. It still kept tripping the breaker. The next morning the breaker did not trip, so I figured I wa

Our refrigerator is about 7 years old. The vegetable drawers (clear plastic) are very difficult to pull out. We have washed and dried them, cleaned the tracks, etc., but to no avail. Is there a suggested lubricant or solution that will allow the drawers to glide freely as they once did? One of the drawers has a small crack due to having to pull with force to open.


Normally, all vegetable doors can easily be pulled out as there are minimum 1/8" allowance in both side. I think, your refrigerator got corroded with where indoor compartment is fixed. Please check any dental in iron side of the door, If not, just cl ... Amana ARB8057C Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

The water pressure is very low for the water spout. I replace the filters every six months or so and the place where I buy them told me that the pressure should be a lot higher when a new filter is installed. They thought that a line may be kinked. I pulled the fridge out and the copper line looked ok. Would it help if I replaced the copper supply line with a plastic one?

Refrig. Light The light bulb(s) works, but the "flipper" thing (switch) on the inside right of the refrigirator door does not turn the light on automatically. If I manually manipulate the switch (mostly with slight downward pressure) the light will go on, but usually as soon as I let it go the light goes out again. Can the switch itself be pulled and cleaned without damaging it or the plastic around it? Any other suggestions? Thanks.

I lost power for several days during Hurricane Ike. When the power came back on, I cleaned out the ice maker bucket and let it make new ice. It makes ice and the light comes on when you press the dispenser lever, but it makes no sound and no ice comes out. Then 2 days ago I had to change the Pur water filter on the refrigerator. When I ran some water into a cup, I noticed the water was coming out much faster than usual. When I filled the cup and pulled it away, the water kept running all ov
