I removed the cover panel. There is a clip that holds the relay and capacitor to the pump. Use a screwdriver to pry it off. Unplug the relay. The capacitor is plugged into the relay and they come together which was a surprise, I thought I only ordered the relay. Unplug a cable from the relay. Insert that cable into the new relay and plug it into the compressor. Reattach the clip. One be important instruction. Unplug the refrigerator for at least 8 hours before installation to allow the compressor to cool down. I tried first without allowing the compressor to cool and it did not work. After letting it cool I tried again and it worked like charm. Make sure the refrigerator is unplugged when doing the repair

After unplugging the refrigerator, I removed the lower rear access panel that exposed the condenser and the overload/relay start capacitor with 1/4" nut driver (6 total). Next, I unplugged the wire harness and spring loaded keeper with needle nose pliers. Then I pulled the overload/relay start capacitor out of the 3 pronged male receptor located on the side of the condenser and plugged in the new one. Replaced the keeper, plugged the harness back in, and replaced the panel. Very easy fix.

Easy to replace part - remove panel at the bottom rear of the appliance, unplug from the compressor and connect the new relay. Unfortunately, it was not the relay on my appliance -- looks like the compressor has gone out -- new fridge for me

I pulled the frige out, took off the cover from the bottom with a nut driver. Took off the safety clip then pulled the plug out from the relay then the relay came out. Replaced the part and reinstalled the same way. This was really easy and fast.

The bottom freezer and the fridge stopped cooling what seemed at a random time but was also after an electrical storm.

First off I had no idea how a fridge worked or where to begin and the troubleshooting section of the manual was a joke. So I took the back panel off made sure the coils underneath were clean. Took out the back panel of the freezer and made sure that nothing was frozen over and I hadn't seen excess water on the floor so ruled that out. I knew the condenser was still running so I took a shot in the dark. Ordered the part and waited for it to arrive. It took me 3 minutes to open the box and install it. Immediately knew it was working replaced the back panel and moved the fridge back.

one mnorning the temp on the frig was in the 50's and the freezer was cold. tried to get someone to come out and repair with no luck. we purchased a new frig. then i decided to see if I could repair the old one to use. I wish I had discovered partselect before i bought the new one. First i thought from the web site that it was a overload/relay problem so i ordered it and changed it out and it was very easy. then that did not correct the problem so i checked further and discovered that it could be the defrost heat element and thermostat. On partselect web site i saw where if your coil is covered in ice that this could be the reason. I ordered them and watched the video of how to change them out. the video is a little misleading because chances are you will not have the room around the coil that it shows on the video and also the element and thermostat will not come as one unit as shown on the video. It is still easy to cut the wires ont he thermostat and install it. the heat element is a little tricky to get out and back in and the clips that holds yours might be a little different and more difficult to do than the video but you can do it. all in all i spent about 160.00 and the frig is working like new.

The repair was simple. It was a matter of unpluging the old relay and then pluging in the new one. I almost bought a new refrigerator but after doing alittle reading on this web sight and finding out the most common reason for having the problem I was having I decided to order the relay. It was the problem...$ 70.00 -v- $1400.00. I'm HAPPY !

Like many others, the tab broke off that held the drawer in place.

I took out the two shelves that were in the way. Lifted the glass out and set it aside. Since the pantry drawer cover wasn't in, because the tab was broke, I lifted the support beam out, pulled out the drawer and lifted it out. (The pantry drawer just lifts right out, straight up then towards you) I took out the back support beam, it lifts straight up. After that, I used a screw driver to take the pantry drawer glider (part #12) off of the broken one, then I put it on the new one so I wouldn't forget its orientation to the new part. I used a my socket set to take out two (should be three, but mine had two) bolts. I then gently pulled off the part needing replaced, first pulling it to the left, bringing the SLIDE- TEM (part #11) the BAR- TEMP (part #15) with it. Part #11 is held in by a tab at the back, to the left, so when you have the whole thing at the correct angle, it just slides out. (Pulling to the right, when you have the whole piece angled towards the center of the fridge, to the left.) After you get that piece out, you'll be able to clean the bottom of the fridge, it's amazing how much crap builds up on the bottom! (I even found a dead fly, eww! LOL) Taking parts #11 & #15 off of your old piece is easy, two tabs that you bend in on the right side of part #11 loosens it from your old part, then twisting it to take the pieces apart then lifting a few tabs to get #15 off of the old part. Then twisting it again to get the KNOB-TEMP (part #14) off. Pay attention to how you take this apart! It goes back together just like it came off! Attach these pieces to your new piece then it slides right in like you took it out. Slide the back left of #11 into the tab, reinsert the bolts, put your support bars back in, put your drawer in, put the drawer cover back into the new tab you just installed, put your glass in and finally, your shelves. All done!

The icemaker was leaking into the ice hopper creating an iceberg.

After receiving the new ice maker assembly I placed the new part next to the old one to see what I needed to transfer from the old to the new. After removing the wiring harness and a few small parts, I placed them on the new assembly. After that it was a snap which timewise took about 15 minutes. I am pleased to say the ice hopper is full and being replenished very efficiently.

1. Prepare the new ice maker by installing the bail cut off from old unit and installing the wiring harness from old ice maker. 2. Turn off the freezer unit only and turn off water supply. 3. Unplugged the electrical connector from the ice maker to the plug in back of freezer compartment. Remove the three (3) screws holding ice maker in place. Placed the cap from old unit to new ice maker. 4. Plug the electrical connector to the plug in back of freezer. Attached new unit with the three screws. Place bail in on position and turn the freezer and water on, ice made in circa 3 hours (without leaking I might add :)
