Replaced the pantry end cap by first removing the pantry drawer. Then removing both crisper drawers and the first shelf with the plastic bars that hold it in place. Removed the slider that the pantry drawer rests on to move in and out -just needed a small flat head screwdriver for that. Then removed three nuts holding the end cap with a nut driver. End cap snap right out and new one went right in. Screwed in three nuts. Then reattached the slider for pantry draw with two screws. Reassembled shelf, crisper drawers and then slid in pantry drawer - reattached the pantry lid to the pins on either end cap. Very easy. The activity that took longest was acquiring the nut driver - I didn't have the right tool. All in all simple job.

had to replace the whole right side panel, came off fairly easy, but to get the adustable rod out and back into the new panel was somewhat difficult. I found out you can bend more than what you think to get it out and back in. It is the rod that adjusts the air flow

Changed bulb, not the problem, had to remove switch to identify correct choice to order (3 pronged verus 2) after that it was easy beyond having to stand on my head to make the exchange. (N B before removing old switch it actually came back to life)

Watched the video on the web site and then followed the instructions. It was very easy to change. After changing it, I filled it with water from a cup to get it started making ice since the video does not address how to do this. It has been working well ever since. If you are handy with tools, you can do this.

I put in a new ice maker because it was not in very good condition. The water valve had a very slow leak which allowed water to freeze on the way to the ice maker and plugged the line. This problem was in one of your repair articles all of which were very welcome

The little knob that holds the door onto the deli bin had snapped. I ordered the part, it arrived within a couple of days. I emptied the necessary shelves, cleaning as I went of course. Removed the old part and installed the new part- instructions weren't necessary. I had the part back in within a few minutes. Someone else had reported that it took longer to remove the shelves and replace them than it did to replace the end cap. I found my experience was the same. I was very proud that I didn't have to ask my husband to do the repair for me- I did it myself.

Internal light did not come on each time the door was opened.

After disconnecting the electricity. I followed the instructions as indicated in the "HOW TO" article on the website. I used a steel putty knife and pried the light switch out of its retaining hole. I worked the right side the most since this is the side with the retaining clip. After I removed the switch I transferred the two electrical outlets to the new switch and easily snapped it into place. Engaged the electric power and tested the switch.

Just followed directions.Which were clear as could be. I think it took longer to clear the freezer, than to replace the ice maker. Thanks so much.

Replaced ice maker

Unplugged refrigerator and truned off water supply. I then removed old ice maker by first removing screw holding mounting bracket with 1/4 inch nut driver. Then I carefully pulled up and out on the ice maker to remove it from mounting brackets on the side of unit. Once free, I was able to access the wiring harness in the back and remove it from the unit by compressing the clips and gently pulling with an even pressure. Now that the old ice maker was detached I took it to my counter and removed the on/off switch rocker bar and wiring harness. I attached these two pieces to the new ice maker. I then plugged the wiring harness back into unit and lined up the mounting brackets on the side wall and did a reverse tilt to downward pressure onto brackets until they clicked in securely. The last step was to screw in the mounting bracket with nut driver. Turned on water line and plugged machine back in. It took about an hour and a half before it produced its first harvest of ice, but has been working like a charm since.

Watch the video on the sight and that was almost all I really needed. The only thing I would add is that it took me some time to get the drawer freezer door off. Lift the front straight up. Don't pull the door slides out.

Replace Pantry End Cap - Right Side

  • Difficulty: Really easy

(Always pay attention to where parts are located and how you remove them.) 1) Remove vegetable and fruit drawers above the pantry. 2) Lift out the glass pantry top. 3) Remove the rails which support the glass pantry top and remove the pantry drawer. 4) Operate the temperature control lever on the end cap while observing the movement of the sliding vent covers just above the back of the pantry drawer. 5) Remove the 3 screws which secure the end cap. 6) Carefully pull the end cap away from the side of the cabinet, taking care not to break any of the attached pieces. 7) Remove the components that control the temperature of the pantry. Some must be rotated to bring the component through a slot (or similar arrangement) - the control arm snaps into a hole in the center back of the cabinet... so you may need to use a flat screwdriver to assist in freeing it. 7) Install the components just removed onto the new end cap. 8) Re-attach the control bar in the back of the cabinet. (Its other end is now attached to the new end cap.) 9) Position the end cap and secure it to the cabinet with the 3 screws. Before snugging them up, test them to insure that the temperature control is sliding correctly. 10) If all is well, snug up the screws. 11) Re-install the glass support rails, glass, pantry drawer and the veg and fruit drawers. 12) Place the left end of the front cover of the pantry drawer on the hinge pin on the left side. Carefully bow the cover to allow the right side to be slid over its hing pin on the right end cap. Job done. In the future, take care to insure that the pantry draw is pushed in and the cover is closed BEFORE you close either of the two doors on the refrigerator!
