popping sound when door opened beyond 90 degrees

I would never attempt an appliance repair but after watching the video instructions for installing this part I decided to give it a try even though I'm dangerous with a screwdriver. After retrieving a nutdriver from my $39 handy dandy tool set, it was a piece of cake. Upper hinge cover, hinge, door removal, comes off in a matter of minutes. Only problem surfaced when I went to install my new cam in the lower hinge. It didn't fit. It was actually for the upper door hinge. I reinstalled the lower plastic piece (whatever it's called), tightened it down, put the door back on (you can do it yourself if it's the refrig. side) and popping sound was gone. I guess the bottom hinge plastic piece was probably loose but you can't tighten it unless you remove the door. I now have a upper door cam in my drawer ready when it fails and will replace it without hesitation.

Removed the icemaker assembly, which was simple to remove. Once the assembly was removed, I unscrewed the motor housing and replaced it. I then reinstalled the assembly and closed the door. It did not making ice immediately and it took about 30 minutes to start.

Our ice maker has not worked for years. My husband tried to repair it back then and now we know that he actually broke it. On the front of motor control there is a dial that says "DO NOT ROTATE'. It means do not rotate.

He removed the front of the motor box. He then took the motor panel off and replaced it with the new one! So easy!! We have been buying ice or getting it from a friend that has a commercial ice maker. I could not believe it was that simple and the delivery was unbelievable. I ordered the part either Thursday or Friday and FedEx delivered it Saturday! Thank you so much. Now I have all the ice I need!!!

No instructions with part. Found a picture on line and changed the arm, but it didn't fix the problem. Fairly easy after figured out what needed to be done to get to the part.

I cracked the crisper pan after having the refrigerator only one week and needed a replacement ASAP!! I was so happy to find this site and the part I needed. It's a little pricy for a plastic drawer but I can overlook that since it was in stock and I received it the very next day!!!I took out the cracked pan, slid in the new one and I was done!!!! No more unsightly crack!

My humidity control and veggie drawers were cracked and broken, I had shopped around but the price to replace them was too high and not in my budget. I came up on partselect.com while searching to find a more reasonable price. The price, service, delivery and customer service was outstanding. One of the drawer had been damaged during shipping, I called them and they sent another one free of charge right away. I had a very positive experience and I have added them to my favorite web sites.

I watched the video on how to make the repair. It was that easy. The hardest part was disconnecting the electrical. Once that was done it was a really simple fix.

I found exact instructions on Youtube. Watched the video. Verified that my Control Bracket was in fact broken by partial disassembly. Ordered the part from PartSeclect. Received the part the next day (though I only paid for ground/standard delivery). Installed the part as described in the video using only two screwdrivers and needlenosed pliers within 14 minutes from start to dispensing water again. My water dispensing was interrupted less than 48 hours. Amazing!!! Thank you. It was fun, fun, fun.PaPa43
