Drilled holes where pins had sheared off. Replaced pins with 4-40 x 1" screws and nuts and fastened switches and spacers on bracket. Used Loctite threadlocker to prevent nuts from loosening and installed bracket. So far, both ice and water dispensers are working fine.

the water stain on the dispenser grille was unsightly even after cleaning with baking soda and vinegar, hence, we purchased a new one. popped the old one out and put new one in. have used parts select in the past and their pricing was very competitive if not better than over vendors.

First we bought an icemaker from Parts Select. That repair went very easy. The old icemaker the plastic coating over the metal had started to come off. We replaced the icemaker and I waited but didn't hear it fill the ice tray I was worried then that it was a valve that was mentioned on the website. The next morning my Wife told me, we have ice I was very happy. Easy to replace the ice maker just have to unplug ours at the icemaker itself, loosen 2 bolts and it comes right out. We just purchased this house and later while we where cleaning the dispenser paddles discovered that the ICE GUIDE the bottom tab was broken off and it was badly discolored so we quickly placed a 2nd order for a new ice guide and thought as long as we where doing that pop out the ice dispenser grille and replace that. They ship quickly and prices seem reasonable. Thank you Parts Select.

Refrigerator too warm, produce freezing in drawer, freezer Tito cold

  • Customer: Mona from The Sea Ranch CA
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

First, let me say that PS was unbelievably fast in getting the part to me ... Extraordinary, in fact. Unfortunately the new part was not the same dimension as the old one ... the four plastic arms that extend through the wall from the refrigerator side to the freezer side and secure the part in place measured a full 1/4 inch shorter than those on the original part ... Even with much effort and a few choice words, it was impossible to get the arms to clip into place ... It wasn't,t even close. So, we used our fine-toothed Swedish saw to take off 1/4 inch of the large part of the styrofoam "housing" so that the arms would extend farther into the freezer side ... Even then, it was difficult to get the arms clipped into place. If the part had been the proper dimension, it would have been a 15 minute job - just remove top two shelves from both sides and move ice maker out of the way ... Just need a nut driver to remove two screws from fridge side to get the two cover plates off and one screw from ice maker ... Push part from freezer side to fridge side, pull wire plug off old unit, plug into new unit, push unit in place on fridge side until arms click in place, replace ice maker, cover pieces in fridge, and shelves. Unfortunately, we didn't get a part that fit. Unfortunately, after all of that agony, our problem remains. We had replaced the bimetal defroster first, which also was delivered quickly. It was different from the original, but it fit and was easy to replace. Next we'll try the thermistor! Incidentally, I agree with an earlier reviewer ... Kitchenaid is junk - not the same since Whirlpool acquired it ... Same with Maytag, in my opinion. Thank goodness for Partselect.com!

Freezer was cold refrigerator was too warm.

  • Customer: Larry from Hatboro PA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

I knew that if my freezer temp seemed Ok and my refrigerator was too warm that I should be looking to see if my evaporative fan was working. It blows the cold air from the freezer through to the refrigerator. Turns out that the unit was working and I figured out by viewing other customer experiences there was a diffuser door that opens and closes with a thermostat that was not operating. Replaced it and everything is fine.

Side by side refrigerator coils were frozen rendering the freezer and fridge running at high temp.

Door would not close properly and was out of vertical alignment

Removed door, removed both upper and lower cam and replaced, applied small amount of vasoline and replaced the door. The entire repair took less than 5 minutes. Door works great. When replacing the cam you need to replace both the upper and lower cam. When you order the parts, the upper cam is on the door schematic and the lower cam is on the refrigerator body schematic. I originally only ordered the upper cam.
