First I turned off the water supply to the frig and raised the bar in the ice make to stop the production of ice. I used the nut driver to remove 3 screws from the housing. I removed the connections from the two water lines & removed the broken housing. I attached the water lines to the new housing and then screwed it back into the refrigerator. I replaced the filter and screwed the filter cup into the housing. Turned on water & ice maker, then ran water thru the door dispenser to check to see if I had done it correctly. No leaks !!! Yeah....I was done !!!

I want to first say that before I ordered this part from "Part Select" I first went and talked with a local appliance repair shop. They quoted me a $120 charge to come out and check the problem. Then $30 and hour service fee, plus parts. He provided me a quote of about $250 for the job.
I found this part easily on the web site $77. It was very easy to instal. The only problem I had was the fact that in the side by side it was very difficult for me to get two hands inside the freezer to install it. (I have wide shoulders). Two screws loosened, no need to remove them. Just life the entire unit straight up. Unplug wire harness. Then just reverse order. Could not be easier. If you can change a light bulb you can do this.

Freezer was cold but the fridge was warm. Back panel of fridge was building up frost

First of all Don't panic! you can do it and you can save a lot of $$$ if you do it yourself. A friend advice me to look it up online resources and came accross part select on YouTube .

The process:
Defrost the fridge. Take down the panels on the fridge to have room to unscrew the back panels. Once you've taken the back panel out. You will see the thermostat right away. Replace it and voila you're done.

starter smoking when first coming on

  • Customer: Michael from Ayden, NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

The retaining wire keeping the starter in place was first removed then the starter was easily removed. Pulling the old wire off was a little difficult because I had to pull harder than I expected. Getting the wire back on was probably the hardest part. I had to compress one part of the plug so I could get it to fit back on then it was simply a matter of placing the starter back in position and replacing the wire that holds it snugly in place. 20 minutes or so start to finish and new starter works well.

This was a simple job. Raised the flap in the back that houses the compressor, removed the wire that holds the relay, pulled out the old relay and pushed the new one on. Replaced wire holder and that was it. Plugged it frig and freezer is at zero and lower compartment at 35. As easy as brushing your teeth!

No problem, I Just pushed the plastic pin to the old support studs into the frig wall using a small screw driver and hammer and with pliers pulled the studs out to the wall of the frig being careful not to damage the wall. Then with pliers {needle nose} pulled the plastic pin out of the wall. Pushed the new support studs in the hole and tapped the plastic pin with a small hammer into the support stud. Replaced crisper drawer cover and glass shelf. Easy fix

One of the bins on my freezer door had the tabs, that hold it on the door, broken off. I orginally ordered the wrong item, but I called right away and Parts Select had the correct item to me immediately. It was a very easy fix, I just had to snap the bin in place once it arrived.I am very impressed with PartSelect and their service. I would definately use them again and recommend them to others.

Refrigerator light was out

  • Customer: andy from Peshastin, WA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

Test the light socket first with a bulb that you know is good. If the light still does not come on, unplug the refrigerator, remove the switch by inserting a very small, thin, flathead screwdriver alongside it and pull the switch out slowly with your other hand. There are two wires there. Remove them gently with some needle nose pliers. If you want to test to see if the switch is defective, take a insulated jumper wire, and attach it between the two wires. Plug the refrigerator back in and see if the light comes on. If the light does come on, replace with a new switch by re-attaching the wires and placing it back in the hole firmly.

Refrigerator quit running

I located the part that was the culprit as it had buzzed very much before quitting. This is an easy removal as the part is in a two prong jack and just needs to be carefully removed with the new part inserted back in the jack provided. The refrigerator works fine now, but the run capacitor will still buzz on start up of the compressor. I do hope this is normal in this model? anyway it runs fine mow. Thank you.
