Meat drawer cover hinge broke

  • Customer: Robert from Kingsport TN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The nipple on the "Pantry End Cap - Left Side" that acted as part of the hinge for the meat drawer cover broke off. After receiving the replacement Pantry End Cap, I removed the meat drawer, removed the 2 vegetable bins, removed the glass shelf above the meat drawer, removed the screws holding the old Pantry End Cap, and pulled the old Cap out. Then I put the new Cap in place, screwed it in, and replaced everything else. The most surprising part of all of this is that I ordered my part on 4/22 and received and installed it on 4/25; 3 days! Thank you PartSelect for your fast response.

The rail & the drawers need to be aligned with each other & then push the rail into the little hole in the back wall of the frig while sliding the drawers in at the same time. I think I put too much fruit & vegs in the drawers which makes them heavy & the little tab which is there to support the drawers has broken off twice. This is the 2nd time I have ordered this rail. It would be helpful if the rail had a vertical supporting post towards the front. I like to have a lot of produce on hand all the time

Ice maker would not make ice

  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

The ice maker was easily replaced, however I still had no ice. I ended up using an on-line repair service which determined that the problem was the water inlet valve. Replacing it was beyond my expertise so I hired an appliance repairman.

Cover to bottom bin would not stay secured. broken plastic support pin

Removed Left side support with broken pin (3 small hex head bolts). Replaced with new support with pin in place. Note behind: I broke the pin trying to replace the cover. Now I know to flex back the side to the cover, and not flex the pin which broke. This cost me 25 bucks and one hour, saving me from a probable $300 dollar charge. THANKS, PARTS SELECT!!!!!

After reading the articles previous owners wrote, I tackled the repair. There were no big problems until I had to change out the water line on the icemaker tray--that part was for a different frig--so it had to be changed out with the Amana water line part that was enclosed. I couldn't get that part removed, so I had to have my husband change it out. He then finished the installation. Everything went smoothly, just my pride wanted me to finish it all by myself.

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.

Pantry end cap right side.

  • Customer: Frank from Palm Coast FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Removing the large drawer,2 drawers,glass shelve & 2 end supports,two screws on the sliding track & two screws on the Pantry end cap it took me 15 minutes. When removing the left Pantry end cap on the right side, care must be taken because Center Crisper Rail #PS 162879 is attached to the Pantry End cap at the back & real care must be taken to remove it. After all the screws are removed pull the end cap carefuly towards you while moving all to the left until it clears the back wall of the refrigerator. Again, real care must be taken using a flat head screwdriver to remove the plastic track for the Center Crisper Rail. The Pantry End Cap on the left is a lot easier to remove than the right side.
