I had previously ordered the solenoid and door kit. The instructions were very well done. The pictures were a bit blurred but have been recopied several times however were adequate to see approximates on where things were. I removed solenoid and replaced it and the door flapper for ice dispenser. No problems with any of that. I had to work with the spring a little, I should have paid more attention to how many times to wrap it for the correct tension. However the solenoid was not the problem. There was intermittent operation from the solenoid when I would jiggle the pc board. Probably has a bad solder joint on the board. I ordered a new board, it took only 10 minutes to replace it since I was familiar with taking the housing loose. Put it all back together and it's working great. There was no drawing or instructions with the pc board but there were in the solenoid kit I had gotten first.
I do highly recommend Parts Select. Parts were shipped promptly. Matter of fact when I ordered the pc board early on Monday. I received it Tuesday afternoon with just ground delivery.

Very Happy Customer. Thanks Parts Select.
