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

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.

R & R the overload/relay start capacitor in a Kenmore refrigerator.

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.

Refrigerator and freezer stopped cooling. Compressor pump not coming on

  • Customer: Joseph from North Anddover, MA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

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

Replace Pantry End Cap - Right Side

  • Customer: Lyman from Searcy, AR
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
(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!

Right hinge broke when wife dropped a candy apple on the deli drawer lid.

  • Customer: James from Toano, VA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

Couldn't have been easier. Remove the glass plate. The deli drawer lifts out of the slides. Two screws later, the entire assembly was out. Be careful with the adjustable vent that is attached to the right end cap. Gently pull out the end cap, the vent just has a tab on the very end that inserts into the rear wall of the fridge. After that, reverse for installation. JMC

I was opening the bottom pull-out as my girlfriend had open the veggie drawer above it, without realizing that the lid would swing up. In other words, on this French door fridge, you can only open one drawer at a time, all the while dumping all the cold air out at once. Im not sure why this model is popular! But its a two door top with bottom freezer, new and expensive, and on Martha's Vineyard-a shipping nightmare (planes, trucks, ferries, more trucks). I was visiting and needed to make amends for busting things up, and quick, before leaving to go home. My boyfriend found PartSelect online, I made an order at 247pm on Thursday (cut off for "next-day" is 3p, so you didn't guarantee it would come before Monday), but the warehouse shipped it anyway by 630p Friday evening, on island! The parts were cheap at about $25 each, the instructions were do-able, the blow out diagram online made it easy to know what I needed, and the whole thing was good-as-new in 48 hours. What a godsend! Thanks PartSelect, for saving me! For $75! Woohoo- (I'll take care of the boyfriend...)

Ice Maker worked sporadically and then started dropping water into bin, make a large chunk.

  • Customer: Harold from Spring Branch, TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Was very happy with the experience of using your company. The man on the phone was helpful. The icemaker shipping was only about $7 and got here in a couple of days. I liked the video, and then including a link to the video with the on-line confirmation. Was not quite sure it was the icemaker or the metering valve on the back, as the latter would make a little grinding noise, but the symptoms matched the dumping of water into the bin. After replacing, everything is working well. The only difficulty was the wire harness plugs into the other side of the back of the box than in the video and I found it a little difficult to route the wires correctly as they seemed too short. But a little trial and error solved that. My model is freezer on the bottom and I didn't notice that the little detachable funnel wasn't quite seated and it was necessary to reinstall, making sure the funnel stayed in place correctly. That was my own error. My overall experience was excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend PartSelect to anyone with an icemaker problem. I'm only sorry I lived with a recalcitrant ice maker for a couple of years before finally acting on it. I am glad I found your website! Lee in Texas

Freezer seal was broken

Thanks to some reviews we found online about replacing gaskets, ours went very smoothly. One person said to soak the gasket in hot water, which we did til it was very soft. Installed like a breeze. Then, the same person said to tape the door closed after installation, we did that too. The gasket looks like it was professionally installed and we have never done it before. Thanks!
