Unplugged appliance. Using a small putty knife I moved the switch out far enough to grab it with pliers. Moved wiring to new switch and pushed into place after testing.

I used a knife blade to slip under the edge of old switch to pray it out of the hole it was inserted into, switched the wires and replaced the new switch into the same hole. It took about five minutes!

Pried out the old switch with small screwdriver, popped in the new one and tah-dah!! ..the light came on. While I was at it, I cleaned out the freezer :). I cannot begin to imagine what a repairman would have charged for this.

I broke the switch pulling the freezer basket out.

I watched the on line you tube video on how to DIY. The putty knife worked to pop out the switch. I used the standar screwdriver to unplug the switch from the wire harness. Then plug in the new switch and pop it back in to the roof of the freezer. Tip: watch out when ordering the new switch - the freezer switch is different than the refrigerator switch. The freezer has three prongs. The fridge has two. I initially ordered the wrong part and added a week to the repair time and had to pay shipping to return the first switch.

Did not self-defrost

  • Customer: Dan from Wellesley, MA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours

Remove freezer door: two pan head machine screws on sides of track, lift and pull. Remove icemaker: electrical connector with latches, three sheet metal screws with 5/16 hex heads, easiest to get top two first. Remove bezel vent from back panel: 3 latches, one lower center other two upper sides. These release with a 3/16 screwdriver. Start with the center one. Remove back panel: 4 sheet metal screws in corners, bow outward to clear retainer and pull out. May have to defrost coil and fins: remove any loose frost gently with plastic scraper, warm with hot air gun on low setting, keeping it moving and a foot or so away from refrigerator parts. Mop up water. Diagnosis: set multimeter to read resistance. Unplug orange wire connected to thermostat. One probe on orange wire, one probe on brown wire, where it enters the multi-connector. Unclip thermostat and warm in your hand. Should be open circuit. Bury thermostat in a handful of frost to cool down. Should be closed circuit. I had about 6 M Ohms, so decided problem was probably thermostat. Also checked heater, which had 30 Ohm resistance, which is correct. Reassembled, ordered part. Disassembled. Unclipped old thermostat and cut off wires. Kit comes with end cap electrical crimps. I used butt splice crimps instead, with a bit of heat shrink tubing over the ends to keep water out. Unplugging orange wire made this a bit easier. Clipped thermostat back onto coil. Reassembly: snap in back panel, re-attach screws. Make sure icemaker hose and connector pass through respective holes, and connector is latched in place. Watch out for sharp edges. Re-install bezel grille; alignment is a bit finicky. Re-install icemaker. Re-install door and baskets. Store food. Done.

Evaporator coils frozen solid / refrigerator not cooling

  • Customer: Richard from Cascade, CO
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

Required about 20 minutes with hair dryer to melt ice from coils. Ohmed out heater at 30 ohms. Noted (as others have) that defrost thermostat was bulged out on one end. Reassembled and ordered replacement thermostat. Received part in three days. Kit contained all parts required for replacement - wires were color coded for easy replacement. Cut both brown and orange wires and used supplied crimp connectors to splice in new thermostat (will need crimpers). Reassembled unit. Actual time to replace part was about 15 minutes. Plastic grill has indications on both sides where to insert a screwdriver to release tabs holding it in place (there is also a tab in the center which is not marked).

Ice maker was leaking and needed to be replaced

I followed the instructions shown on the YouTube video on the Parts Select site. I had to make a few modifications. There were two nuts that had to be loosened to lift the ice maker off the freezer wall. The mounting bracket had to be transferred from the old icemaker to the new one to align with the hole in the freezer to reattach. The white wire went under the clip was a black wire but it was easily recognized. Other than that it was very straight forward and I had new ice in a few hours. I would definitely do it again.

Original ice maker failed to make ice

Replaced the ice maker. I have a 3 door refrig. It has a bottom drawer freezer. Remove the freezer door to make this much simpler. On my unit, the ice maker is installed with three screws, rather than one and two clips. Check before you try to pull it out. You should unplug the old ice maker from the refrig, leaving the wires on the old ice maker. It's much easier to remove the old wiring harness from the old ice maker once you've removed the front plastic cover on the unit. Both plugs on the harness have clips on them to prevent accidental disconnections. Be sure to find and press the clip releases before you pull on the wires. Nut driver makes this job easier than screw driver. You only need one size for all screws. I used the old ice maker bottom mounting clip rather than trying to bend the new one to shape. Much easier. My old ice maker had an extra wiring clip, which I moved to the new unit before the install. There is one wiring clip to hold the temperature probe, and another just to keep the wires neat. Letting the old ice maker front plastic cover warm up a bit before you try to pry it off for reuse is a good idea. Less chance of cracking. Two hours after the install, I had new ice in the ice bin.

I never would have imagined that my husband and I could replace our ice maker so easily. We simply fired up the step-by-step video on my tablet, paused it as we did each step and voila! Usually there is a lot of cussing with any repair we do and I don't think there was even one cuss word uttered. Thank you for the clear and concise instructions!

Ice maker quit working and had water leak

Your video was very helpful and accurate. However, my freezer is a bottom drawer type, so I needed to remove the freezer door first. There were 4 nutscrews which needed to be loosened, and door lifted off. Now with the door off, and both baskets removed, access to the ice maker was easy like your video. Also, the freezer compartment was much more accessible for cleaning as well. In 2 days after replacing the ice maker, we have had 2 full batches of ice, with full sized cubes! Your ecommerce shopping, delivery, and instructional videos made for a great on line buying and installation experience. Note: The Dacor ice maker was replaced with a Whirlpool ice maker part. Your replacement part was identical in all respects to the original equipment even though Dacor was not included in your list of compatible brands.

ice maker not working

watched the video you have on installation and followed it with ease. The only part you need a tool is to loosen the first nut and then everything else pretty much pops out and you reinstall with the new part. The icemaker worked within an hour and makes perfect cubes. The videos are super helpful.
