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.

Refrigerator not cold, Freezer not freezing; running for about 5-10 seconds, then shutting off.

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)!

Did you know you have to press the button next to the filter before you pull on the filter cap? Like most week end warriors, I just pulled the cap and of course, I broke it! The repair was simple, hopefully, in six months I will remember to press the button!

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.

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!

I watched the video showing how to disassemble unit and it showed that there was a heat element inside the chute door under the foam seal that needed to be removed and placed in side the new chute door. I spent about 10-15 minutes trying to salvage the element but the adhesive used would not release and the part was rendered unusable. I called the help line and was told that their instructions on that kit said the heating element was no longer required. I finished putting the kit in and the unit works fine

Ice door would not close

  • Customer: Richard from Springfield MO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

Ice door would not close thus letting warm air into the freezer compartment. Thinking the spring was broken, I ordered the Ice Door Kit. When it arrived, I dismantled the dispenser and installed the new parts. After installing all the new parts, I found that my problem was the "Y" end of the bracket that holds the spring pin. It was cracked and would not hold the pin. The bracket seemed to be molded into the panel on the outside of the dispenser. To replace the bracket, I would have had to replace the entire outside panel. I decided to repair the bracket and glue the broken piece. I used cyanoacrylate(CA)super glue that I use in model making. Even though that seemed adequate, I decided to drill a small hole through the bracket, perpendicular to the crack, and install a small screw to strengthen the crack. I also applied a little CA to the screw for good measure. It held fast and so far so good!

Your web site was great. There was a short step by step video on how to remove and replace the ice door kit and tools required. The only additional tool I used was Blue Tape so I could stabilize the inner control panel out of way onto Door.If I need more appliance parts I now know where I am ordering from!!
