We heard the unit trying to start and then cutting off. It quit making ice. I pulled the unit out cleaned the coil and could feel the compressor was really hot. Unplugged it and let it cool down. After internet search plugged it in a heard it try to start then cut off. I read so many short stories on your site that described my problem I was convinced to purchase the part. You guys did a great job! I ordered it on Monday before noon it came the next day Fed X ground. Took me a liitle over 15 min. to put the part in. Plugged it in and it's worging great. We live in remote area and service call would be real expensive. I will be back here on next repair challenge. Thanks for your help. You guys offer a great service.

Unplug refrigerator. Take unit cover off with a screwdriver or nut driver. Looking at the left side of the compressor you will see the start device and run capacitor with a clip around it. Use the pliers to remove the clip. Take screwdriver pry gently between compressor and start device and take it off. Replace with new part. NOTE: THE CLIP DID NOT FIT THE NEW ONE.

Unplugged refrigerator and removed back cover to expose the compressor and timer/relay assembly. I removed a retainer clip with needle nose pliers, unplugged and removed harness to relay followed by removing the timer/relay assembly together from the compressor. I used the screw driver to pry off very gently. Once removed, the new timer/relay was installed followed by the harness, retainer clip and back cover. The refrigerator was plugged in and my Gladiator man cave fridge was brought back to life.

Watched video instruction. Looked at online diagram. Removed back cover. Replaced two parts purchased from Partselect.com. Great website, fast service, excellent price! Almost purchased a new refrigerator, but decided to try this first! Happily....working perfectly and spent less than $100 (and saved $1,500 by not purchasing a new refrigerator)!

Installing new "wiper" at bottom of ice in-door ice dispenser

  • Customer: Peter J from Montgomery TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The plastic "wiper" attached to the bottom of the ice "auger" in the ice dispenser unit broke. (It was made from a plastic that was not up to the freezing temps and heavy ice loads it had to move.) The new unit seemed to be of a different type of nylon/plastic. Problem was that the small machine screw at the bottom of the auger assembly could not be removed because of corrosion. I had to drill it out. Choices then were to purchase a new auger for about 60 bucks or reassemble the unit with a new 6-32 machine screw. There will not be enough metal left to allow it to be tapped so simply clean it out well and glue in the new screw with JB Weld. Allow to cure over night and you're back in business. Ours works fine so far. Good luck!

We just bought a home with the refrigerator in it. The Water Filter Cap on the refrigerator was not there.

I had already hit the eject button and nothing happened. I could not get the filter out. I read the instructions, got on line and ordered the water filter cap. In the meantime, I worried about getting the filter out. I tried pliers and then I found after several tries and a lot of frustration, a lid off of a spray can that fit. I could have waited until the cap came in, but me being me, I could not wait. I worked the filter out, but waited until the cap came in the mail to finish the job. . I put the cap on the filter inserted it and finished what I had started the week before. Simple once I had the cap.

Whirlpool Refrigerator not cooling

  • Customer: Glenn from Clinton Township MI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Besides the refrigerator not cooling, there was a click-buzz-click noise occurring at the rear of the refrigerator every 5-10 minutes. I started by looking up the issue online, I determined the issue was either the compressor or the starter device. I ended up ordering the replcement starter device from partselect.com. The replacement was very easy. All I had to do was pull off the rear cardboard panel, unplug the wire bundle to the starter device, and pull out the starter device.
