Removed lower plate on back of refridgerator and changed out fan. The video was great and made the repair a snap. Fan is quiet and no more overheating refridgerator.

I would not have attempted the repairs without your instruction. I use a Drimel tool with a abravise blade to cut the part off the shaft. After I realized the Drimel tool would work. It took me parhaps 10 minutes to get it off the shaft. I had already ordered the new part and the job was complete. Thanks for the help. Ron Burch

It tool me a while to diagnose the problem but realized the ice dispenser motor coupling had failed. It fooled me for a while because it turned on the motor but could not turn the plastic shaft inside the icemaker. I found the instructions for an almost identical repair on your website. 1)I removed the motor. In my case the wiring harness came right off.2) I turned the coupling by hand and found that although it turned, it was actually loose on the motor shaft. I then knew it was the problem. 3) The threads were apparently cross threated. 4) As a prior user suggested on your site, I used a hacksaw to cut the old coupling off, being careful to not damage the remaining threads. 5) I ordered the new coupling which arrived very quickly 6) I screwed it on to the motor shaft (remember it is a left hand thread). 7) Presto!! My icemaker works. As the other user suggested, I did not have to use washers as spacers. The new coupling was better made than the old one and actually has ~1/8" nut or spacer already welded to the coupling. My thanks to those before me who helped make this a successful repair.

Ice mold was leaking causing all the ice to freeze into one chunk.

Got the main bolts off and unplugged and removed the ice maker. Had to remove all parts and rebuild it on the new mold. Was more complex than I thought but was able to get it done. Note where everything was as you take it off and you'll do fine.

old ice maker did not work at all.

Unplug refrigerator and turn water supple off. Remove three mounting mounting screws and unplug the old ice maker.(there is a latch on the plug to release it) Remove shutoff arm from old unit or if ordered seperatly with the ice maker, install shutoff arm on the new unit. Plug the new unit in (latch will snap into place when plug is properly seated.) Install the bottom screw (leave screws loose until all are started in the orginal holes). Tighten screws and you are done. Turn the water on and plug refrigerator in. After about an hour or two the ice maker will be cold enough to start making ice. In about five hours or so you will see the first ice cubes!!!!

Did some research on internet. Order part. Replaced part. New problem now. After running about 15 hours, the ground fault circuit gets out. And again the refgrigerator stops working. Reset ground fault circuit and after about 15 mins. it starts working again. Not sure what is causing the problem now. Anybody have any suggestions?

Both fans running/No cooling/Compressor hot & Not running

  • Customer: Jeff from Belfair WA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

First I checked the compressor, very hot to the touch & not running. I unplugged for a few minutes to cool & when I plugged it back in, it started for maybe a second or two. Then I unplugged the relay from the compressor and new instantly it was fried. So I decided to google the issue which led me too partselect.com and I then realized this relay is called the start device/Relay and it also provides overload protection for the compressor. When I received the part or parts in this case, they came in a small box which included 2 combo relays, 2 overloads, 1 ptc start relay, 1 jumper wire, 1 electrical cover, 1 instruction sheet. By using the number on the compressor I was able to see that I needed to use the ptc start relay & one of the 2 overloads which plug onto the compressor & I needed to use the white jumper wire as the terminals were a different size on the ptc relay. At first I was a little confused because I unplugged one relay and the replacement was two separate parts. Had to read instructions carefully several times to make sure I was using the correct overload and ptc relay. I plugged in the fridge to test & it worked great so I unplugged and installed the electrical cover, reinstalled cardboard cover on back of fridge & I was done. Two weeks later fridge is working great!! Hope this helps.

Instructions were great, and all parts included for both compressor options. Once I figured out which parts to use, it took only minutes to repair; straight plug in; no problem or modifications required. Old control device innards were rattling/shot from the move. Best $50.00 I ever spent! Milton Waddams, Mt. Pleasant, SC

TOOK CARDBOARD BACK PANEL OFF AND LOOKED AT COMPRESSOR NUMBER AND FOUND RIGHT PART NUMBER FROM THE COMPRESSOR START KIT. IT WAS SOMEWHAT CONFUSING AS YOU HAVE TO TAKE THAT PART OF EXISTING UNIT. THE RUN CAPACITOR IS DIFFERENT SIZE BUT WORKED. WORTH THE TROUBLE FIGURING OUT INSTRUCTIONS FOR PARTS BUT IS WORKING GREAT RIGHT NOW.

Called the very friendly and helpful customer rep at partselect: explained my confusion in selecting the right part I needed, and with her help slected the compressor start device kit. It turned out to be an exact match for my defective parts, and only took a few minutes to plug it all together. It now works like new! Easy fix. Anyone who can pay attention to what they are doing should be able to resolve their own problem easily. By the way, shipping was very fast!

The most difficult part was after I removed the old Start Device kit, the electrical wire clamp had to be adjusted so that it would fit back on the new compressor start device. Also the new one did not look like the old one so it took a few minutes to read the instructions and set it back up correctly but once in place it worked like a charm.

Unplugged refrigerator. Removed back panel to expose compressor, unplugged start device, removed the wire keeper, had to use a flat screwdriver to pry off the start device from the compressor prongs. Was not sure run capacitor was damaged but replaced it any way. Installing the new start device was as simple as plugging everything into there respective places. Reinstall the wire keeper, and back panel. Plugged the refrigerator in. All is back to normal.
