I got a call on a GE fridge today. The fridge side is freezing, but otherwise the thing works good. Model#DSS25KGRAWW.
The problem was that the damper door which controls air flow between the freezer and fridge broke. The door snapped at the hinge/post that is operated by the motor. All I can find is that the whole thing needs to be replaced. It retails for ~ $150. How does one find the part that is actually broken.
It angers me that:
1) They make the door so cheap it will break. How much torque can a damper door motor need? Etc.!?!? Give me a break!
2) Why do they need this crap in the first place!??
3) Why do we need to buy the whole housing/fan/harness/motor/door flap to fix it!?
4) If I ever hit the lottery, I'll start a company that makes indestructible appliances. My logo will be giving the corporate world the finger.
Sorry for the digression. The point is that I had an icemaker problem and someone pointed me to the gear I needed. (it might have been Dab, or may be Tgoods). This saved me from buying the whole motor or whole icemaker.
Is there a way to buy just the flap for this thing (WR49X10091
) or do we always need to play this game?
