Fixed My GE GXCF05D Water Dispenser Heating Problem

1 tool

I have a GE Water Dispenser model GXCF05D that stopped heating water. I followed the advice found on another website and tested the thermal overloads for continuity. I found one was open at room temperature and suspected it was bad. Galco Industrial Electronics had a suitable replacement for 2.48 each. I had to modify the new one a little bit but it's installed now and works great. See the attached images for details.
