Has your Gibson appliance bitten the dust after many years? Whether your appliance is a freezer, a dishwasher, a refrigerator or a range, many problems can be fixed with replacement parts. All you need to do is a little bit of troubleshooting with your unit. Once you've found the problem, check Sears PartsDirect for the appropriate replacement part.
Here are typical problems that occur with some appliances
Your freezer has a sheet of ice on the bottom—The cause could be the drain tube is clogged by ice or gunk. When the drain tube is clogged, a puddle forms, which then freezes into the sheet of ice. Clean the drain tube with hot water. If this doesn’t fix the problem, replace the drain tube.
Your dishwasher will stop mid-cycle—First, make sure the door is latched. If the door is closed, check to make sure the house breaker did not trip. If that is fine, the electronic control board may need to be replaced. The dishwasher electronic control board runs all of the dishwasher functions. If the control board is getting the voltage but still not working, it needs to be replaced.
Your refrigerator drips water—A leak in the water inlet valve could be the culprit. The water inlet valve controls the water flow to the ice maker and the water dispenser. If the valve does not stop the flow of water properly, it needs to be replaced.
Your range is not working at all—First, make sure the range is plugged in and has power going to the outlet. If the range still will not turn on, check the terminal block at the back of the range for loose wires or broken terminals. If there is any damage, the block needs to be replaced.
Your dryer is not working at all—If your dryer shows signs of not getting power, there are a couple repair options. First, make sure that the house circuit breaker has not been tripped. If it has, reset the breaker. If not, the problem could be a faulty power cord.
Your front-loading washer is leaking—If your washer is leaking, check all of the hoses that supply water to the machine for damage or holes. If there are no holes, check the draining system to see if there is a clog or something restricting the flow of water through the washer drain. If there is nothing clogging up the system, check the washer door boot, which can get holes inside the different folds. If you find holes, replace the boot.
