cut brackets to size and snapped them into place with the caps purchased. I will continue to use PartSelect for all my appliance repair needs. Not only did I receive my order within 2 days but the cost was over half of what I have been paying for the local parts store to order for me. Thank you PartsSelect.

It took longer to remove the retainer bar from the packaging than it did to install it in the fridge.

Both left and right end caps were pushed into their respective places on the retainer bar and then the whole thing was snapped into place on the door of the fridge.

Super easy!

Put them together and (do this carefully, as they are light-duty plastic; the reason the originals failed) snapped them into place. Parts were factory-origninal, easy to figure out. Delivery time was exceptional, packaging great.

It was so easy! I just slipped the shelving units in to the groove of the refrigerator, and it took approximately 2 minutes. I am so glad that I came across this company, because for the last 3 years I have tried to fix the shelving.

Refrigerator door gasket torn

No instructions included, so it took a little bit of staring at the new part to figure out how it works. The barbed ridge on the gasket fits into a slot on the door. The flat face of the gasket has an internal magnetic strip that helps keep the seal tight against the steel face of the refrigerator. Installation requires no tools. This is the basic process:
1) Unbox the new gasket and get it ready to install so you don't have to leave the fridge open too long.
2) Open the door and grab the old gasket at one of the corners and pull away. This will unseat the barbed ridge I mentioned above. Work your way around the door until the whole gasket is free.
3) Set aside the old gasket
4) Grab a moistened paper towel and wipe down the (now exposed) sealing surface of the fridge and door.
5) Align the new gasket in the door and start pushing the barb into place. I found that the new gasket seemed slightly oversize compared to the original, so it took a little tweaking. What worked for me was to get all the corners seated, then work my way around the door making sure the gasket is fully seated.
6) Once you have the new gasket installed, close the door to make sure everything fits OK.
7) Open the door again and run your finger along the inside edge of the gasket seal. What you want to do is fold the edge of the gasket down so it lays flat against the outer wall of the door.
8) Shut the door and look from the sides and top to try to spot any gaps. You should be able to poke the gasket from the side and get the magnet strips to click into place. It seems like after a day or so the gasket 'relaxed' and I didn't have to worry about this anymore.
9) Dispose of the old gasket. I was able to pull the gasket into four pieces (separating at the corners) so it would fit in my city trash can...

evaporator coil kept freezing up, refridgerator warm.

This was the second part I tried. The defrost timer was first, but that did not fix it. To do this I had to remove the ice maker and the back plate of the freezer. Then I defrosted the coil and cut the wires. stripped them back and installed the new thermostat. re-assembled and tested. has been working great ever since.

ICE MAKER STOPPED WORKING

  • Customer: JACK from MESA AZ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 74 of 78 people found this instruction helpful
IT WAS PRETTY STRAIGHT FORWARD. REMOVE THE TWO SCREWS THAT HOLD THE UNIT TO THE WALL OF THE FREEZER. IN MY CASE, I HAD TO USE A DIFFERENT ICE MAKER THAN WHAT CAME WITH THE FRIG. IN ORDER TO INSTALL THE REPLACEMENT UNIT THEY SENT A WIRE ADAPTOR SO IT WOULD ATTACH TO THE EXISTING WIRING. THAT TOO WAS ALL FINE AND DANDY. THE ONLY PROBLEM WAS THAT THE END OF THE WIRE ADAPTOR DID NOT FIT THROUGH THE EXISTING HOLE IN THE REAR OF THE FRIG. I USED A UTILITY KNIFE TO CUT THROUGH THE THIN METAL LINING. THAT WORKED JUST FINE. HOWEVER, I COULD NOT CUT THROUGH THE INSULATION BECAUSE I COULD NOT REACH IT THROUGH THE SMALL HOLE. THE EXCESS WIRE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE PULLED THROUGH THE HOLE AND OUT THROUGH THE BACK OF THE UNIT. SO NOW THE EXCESS IS BETWEEN THE WALL OF THE FREEZER AND THE INSULATION.
THE UNIT IS WORKING WONDERFULLY. IN FACT, IT IS MAKING MORE ICE THAN I CAN USE. I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THE REPLACEMENT UNIT. THIS IS THE 3RD ICE MAKER THAT HAS BEEN IN THIS FRIG. ALL THE OTHERS HAD A DESIGN FLAW THAT HAD A LEAK IN THE REAR OF THE UNIT. THIS CAUSED ALL THE ICE TO FORM INTO A BIG BLOCK. THE REPLACEMENT UNIT HAS NOT HAD THIS PROBLEM SO FAR.
THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO EXPLAIN MY SITUATION SO THAT MAYBE OTHERS MAY BENIFIT FROM MY EXPERIENCE.
THANK YOU.

Refrigerator would not run but interior light was on.

I unplugged the refrigerator, then opened the door and removed four screws holding the plastic electrical panel to the interior top of the main refrigerator compartment and noticed the cold control was corroded badly, apparently from moisture in the panel. I ordered a new one from partselect.com. When it arrived the next day, I then pulled off the control knob, unclipped the cold control, unplugged the three wires to the control, then removed the styrofoam insulation blocks holding the thermocouple wire and then removed the thermocouple wire to complete the removal. I then reversed the process to install the new thermostat and control. That is repositioned the thermocouple wire, put the insulation blocks back to hold the wire, then replugged the three electrical wires, clipped the control back and pushed the control knob back on and finally screwed the panel back to the top of the main compartment and plugged the refrigerator electrical cord back in to provide current to the refrigerator. It immediately started up and ran fine. Total time - about 8 minutes.

bottom of fridg. would not get cool. Temp was 50-60degrees. The freezer compartment worked so I knew it was not the compressor.

I removed the fan housing in the freezer section by removing all the screws. (7) There are two screws behind the vents. I did not have an ice maker to contend with so this was very easy. There is only two wires to disconnect....the ground wire and the electricity supply. Then you remove the unit from the back of the housing cover by removing two screws. Then the motor is removed from it's housing by removing 2 more screws. 1...2...3 and you're ready to reverse the procedure. I am not mechanically inclined and this was easy. Saved myself perhaps $120.00. Repair folks wanted mininum of $60.00 just to come out. Part and shipping cost me 33 bucks.OH, DON'T FORGET TO UNPLUG THE FRIDGE. :>)

Freezer cold, not defrosting, refrigerator not cold

This was extremely easy. Took off the control box (housing that covers the light bulb, has the temp control dial on it) and easily replaced the defrost timer. Then, emptied freezer, took off cover at the back of the freezer. Disconnected old defrost thermostat, attached new one, reattached back cover, melted accumulated ice, put stuff back in. Started up. Been running great ever since. No more ice accumulation in freezer. Temp stays constant. Great service from PartSelect, saved lots of money. This job is easy on this fridge, go for it!
