Refrigerator door would not close by itself

  • Customer: William from Apex NC
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I've replaced the door cams in the past, but they didn't last very long. I finally realized on my own that both parts need to be replaced at the same time. One piece is on the case-side of the bottom hinge and the mate is on the door-side of the bottom hinge. They both have a ramp shape, with door ramp riding up the hinge ramp as you open the door. The ramp shape makes the door want to slide back down the ramp to close automatically. These are plastic parts that wear out over time. If you don't replace both at the same time, the ramp shapes don't match and they wear out quickly. They are inexpensive parts, so always replace both at the same time. I added a thin layer of petroleum jelly to help them glide better. Hopefully this fix will last a long time. It's extremely easy. First take off the top hinge of the door. Then lift the whole door off the bottom hinge. You can set it on a chair with the bottom hinge hanging over the edge of the chair. Replace the two parts, one on the door bottom hinge and one on the refrigerator case bottom hinge. Easy as pie. The only tool needed is a nut driver. You need a helper to help lift and balance the door while you work on it.

First I used some glue to stop the crack from spreading, and that worked for a while, but then I deceided to get a new replacement part. What I got was better than the original one as it had a white protective piece over the end of the drawer and I believe that will give more protection to the drawer. My kids did not always close the drawer all the ways and that is how the crack started. So now the refrigerator looks like new again.

Old ice maker not working right

Wrong valve bracket

  • Customer: David from Petersburg AK
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I completed the ice maker installation but the bracket the automatic water valve was attached to in no way would fit my Whirlpool fridge. The one showed in instructions sent with the ice maker was different than the one Partselect sent me. I had to grind both sides of the bracket off and just hot glued it to the spot where it was supposed to go. I can see how this could be a real issue for some.

Refrigerator Door would not close on its own

  • Customer: Enrique Pulido from Miami FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Set out an area large enough to lay the door down once I took it off the refrigerator. Took off the top screws and hinge. Had my 12 year old so help me with the door and hand me all the tools so I could quickly change out the parts and not leave the Refrigerator open for too long. I think from the moment we took the door off to the moment it was back on was probably about 5-6 minutes tops. That is how easy this was. All the parts fit and thank you to PartSelect and it great website that advised me of the second part that went with the first if not I would never have known. Thanks again!!

Crisper Drawer was cracked.

I opened the refrigerator door, being careful to leave the freezer door closed. After verifying that refrigerator light was on, I squatted down to be at the same level as the crisper drawer. Firmly grasping the old crisper drawer by the convenient built-in handle, I pulled the drawer until it was fully opened. I removed the contents of the old crisper drawer, noting the original location of each item, so that I can place the contents into the replacement drawer in the same place. Grasping the old crisper drawer, I pulled outward and lifted slightly until the drawer was off the track and out of the refrigerator. Using both hands, I placed the rear of the new crisper drawer against the drawer track, lining the tabs on either side so that they would enter the track. I applied gentle, rearward pressure, guiding the new crisper door onto the track. This step was a little tricky. I had to wiggle the new crisper door up and down a bit, to get the new crisper door past the "stop bumps" in the track. After the new crisper door was sufficiently in the track to be supported by the track, I replaced the contents in (what I thought) the same locate from which they were removed from the old crisper drawer. After placing all contents back into the new crisper drawer, I applied a little more rearward pressure until the new crisper drawer was in the fully closed position. I then closed the refrigerator door. I quickly reopened the refrigerator door, to ensure the light went out. It was on. I slowly closed the refrigerator door, keeping an eye on the gap between the refrigerator door seal and the refrigerator cabinet, and noted the light did, in fact, go out when the door was about a half inch from being fully closed. Returning to a fully standing position, I announced to my wife that I repaired the broken crisper drawer. The congratulated me on my accomplishment and I felt a rush of satisfaction over a job well done.

Received new drawer in 2 days and effortlessly exchanged it for broken one. Color of writing didn't match but I just removed it from the old one and replaced it. Very pleased.

The refrigerator would not defrost and would freeze up and no longer cool.

  • Customer: Mike from Frankfort IL

Turn off power to the frig. Remove the shelves and back brackets from the freezer, then with a 1/4" nut driver remove the nuts holding the rear metal panel in place. Once removed the defrost thermostat is right in front of you. You will have to clip the wires from the old t-stat because they are in a harness. Once clipped, strip the wires back, wire in the new t-stat, add wire nuts and put it all back together. Very easy job to do, works great. Thanks Parts Select, Mike.
