Light socket melted around bulb

  • Customer: William from Alexandria VA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 22 of 38 people found this instruction helpful
After unsuccessfully trying to change the blown light bulb I discovered that the plastic light socket had gotten so hot that it melted and permanently fused with the blown bulb. After my new socket arrived in the mail I just popped the temp control assembly out with a screw driver and removed the old socket and placed the new one in. Whole operation to 5 minutes.

Drip pan had rusted & was leaking water on the floor

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

The BIG problem was getting the old drip pan off. The bolt on top of the compressor was too long to allow the removal of the old drip pan. I removed the old drip pan by cutting most of it away with tin shears then cutting the remaining part of the pan around the bolt with a hack saw (taking care not to damage freon lines and raising the pan above the threads of the bolt so as not to damage the threads). I still had to cut half the bolt away with a hack saw by replacing the nut and cutting a third of the bolt away (above the nut), so the new pan would fit. Putting the new pan on was a breeze after that. It may be easier to just cut the bolt off altogether on top of the compressor and use the wire clips per the instructions supplied with the kit to install the new one.

Door shelf retainer bar end caps broke off at insertion point.

Removed plastic male parts. Inserted new end caps onto old retainer bar. Inserted all into door. A snap, but I didn't need to order the retainer bar after all - the old one was the perfect fit and the one I ordered was way too long. I returned the new retainer bar, and the shipping was more expensive than the part.

Compressor was short cycling

  • Customer: Sherman from Tuttle OK
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 5 of 9 people found this instruction helpful
Removed the cowling with a square drive screw driver, removed the spring clip from the cover of the compressor controls with a screw driver, pulled off the old compressor start relay and replaced it with the new part. Since other problems could have caused the compressor to short cycle this was a "replace the part and hope it would work" since that would be the most common reason and it was not a very expensive part.

Was really basic, simply slide off the old caps, slide on the new ones, put the shelf back where it goes, push down lightly so as to not snap the new caps, and viola, complete. No more than 2 minutes worth of work. Great part at a great price, shipping was more than the part itself so I bought 2 of each. Only problem I ran into was that I ordered the top shelf caps instead of the bottom the first time, so I had to reorder.

The compressor would not run.

  • Customer: Linda from Gurnee IL
  • Difficulty: Easy

I removed the cover, used a multimeter to test the compressor circuit, and found the compressor start relay to be defective.
Ordered a new one and installed it when it arrived.

The replacement part was a bit too long (about 6"). Measured length of the existing bar that was on lower shelf and used a rotary tool with a metal cutting disc to make the same length. Everything snapped into place easily.

I would like to say first PARTS SELECT is the best everyone was more than helpful My main problem was the model no.on the frig was the wrong number so with that now being a known fact the people on the phones were very helpful in finding the parts I needed... my proproblem was the parts were alittle different than OEM. thats were the HOT WATER comes into play after talking with factory Tech because the clip end were alittle smaller so hot water & soap would them more flexible to slip into place
So THANK YOU again

The parts were sent out fast, but the wrong retainer bar.
My apartment bldg is in another state, by the time I got up to my apartment bldg to do the repair several weeks had passed and i lost the bill to get a refund and now I have a $40.00 strip of metal sitting in my garage
So the fix time would have been 15 minutes had I received the correct part.

Shelves wobble and gasket leaked..

I replaced the shelf end caps in the shelves of my fridge and I also replaced the gasket around the door.

Every time I would open the door, things would fall out because the shelves were giving, because the end caps were broken. Once I got the new ones, I was amazed that these parts are still available and that they lock right in with no problem. Once you get one in, you then have to place one end of that retaining bar into that, very tightly, making sure the end is completely secure in the cap. Then you can lock the other cap to the other end, lock it into place in the door and whala! It is just that simple.


Now the gaket is another story, it is best to soak the gasket in hot water first to draw it up abit so it will be snug and also to use lubricant such as petroleum around the inside where it is going to fit to the door. This made it extremely easy to afix to my door with no problems. I am so glad for this site.. hundreds of dollars saved!!

The refrigerator in my new apartment was missing the brackets that hold the bars so that things don't fall off of the door shelves. It was missing several off of the refrigerator door and one off of the freezer door.

I just had to make certain I had the correct end-cap for the correct side. I placed the two little curved pieces into the slots and applied some downward pressure (gently) onto the end-cap till I heard it "snap" into place. You could then see that it was held in place securely. I did first one side, then fed the bar into it, then placed the other side onto the the bar; inserted the end-cap and secured it in place.

HINT: I myself mistakingly ordered the same exact end-cap for both the freezer and the fridge doors. I was unaware (I failed to check), that the end-caps for the freezer are not the same end-caps as the ones for the fridge door. My refrigerator uses three different end-cap sizes; one size for the actual fridge door and two additional different sizes for the freezer door. Not wanting to exchange it, I used the one I ordered anyway. It still works, but makes the bar protrude into the freezer more than it would have, had I ordered the correct size.

SPECIAL NOTE: This company got the correctly ordered products to me within a couple of days. I would definitely order from them again without hesitation. I am very happy with the product and service. Smooth.

For years we opened the refridgerator door and the things fell off the bottom shelf.

We ordered end pieces for the shelf holder, attached them to the long piece and snaped them into the door. Three minutes to open the box, attach, and close the door. A less than 20 dollar repair and success!

Bottom shelf (beverage shelf, large bottles, etc.) was unuseable because the plastic end caps were cracked. The metal shelf bar was intact though.

We have a wonderful Kelvinator refrigerator. It has served us tirelessly for more than 15 years - and looks as good as new! (We frequently clean it out and clean the interior and exterior, to keep it looking and smelling clean)

Replacement of the end caps and shelf was very easy!

The broken end caps were removed (missing for years), and it became one of those small projects that one never gets around to. I finally took down the model number and looked online for it. Google or Yahoo (can't remember which) pointed us to you site. I was SHOCKED to see that the parts were still available! I called your friendly customer order line and had a very pleasant experience placing the order. The BIGGEST shock came when the parts arrived THE NEXT DAY!! Just in time for Thanksgiving! You are AWESOME!

The Repair:

Easy as pie. The end caps simply snap into place. I did the left side first, then carefully inserted the metal bar, which is supported by the two end caps. Next I snapped in the right side cap - DONE. It took longer to clean the bar up, than it did to replace the caps!

The Results:

The bottom door shelf is now useable again. We can place 2 liter beverages and juice containers on the door, where they belong! My wife cheered and commented, "The refrigerator is no longer an eye sore when I open it!" :-)

Thank you Parts Select!!!!

First I removed the broken end caps. I placed the new end cap onto the shelf bar and snapped the end cap into the holding slot on the door interior. Took about 5 minutes. Very easy.
