Freezer Door Removal GE Bottom Mount
« on: January 08, 2013, 06:22:13 PM »
I have to replace the evaporator fan motor on a GE bottom mount refrigerator, model# PFSS5NFWASS, but am unsure how the door is removed. It does not appear to have tabs that allows it to be lifted up and out. The diagram appears to show 6 screws are removed and the door drops away from its mount. Is this correct or is there another way to remove it?

Any help would be much appreciated,


Steve

Hi AJ,

Thanks for the link but that is a different model then the one I was working on. The correct way to remove the door is to remove 10 3/8 screws mounting the door to the door connector, 5 on each side, and lift the door up and off. One tip that will facilitate easier rehanging of the door is to loosen but not remove the top screws.

Sorry AJ,

I meant JW. Is your manual download located on one of your DVDs for sale?

Just let me know what service manual you want and I will send you the download link free of charge.

Doing some maintenance on our regular service manual downloads on the site right now so I'm sending download links via PM at the moment.

Did you get a chance to download the service manual I posted the link to above?
If not I will send you the download link via PM.

Just let me know....
