I mistakenly ordered the wrong part the first time and it was too short. After calling and giving the model # they were able to order the correct part. Installing it was easy, it just dropped into place.

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.

I got online, found the parts,, ordered them and received them in two days. Surprise! They were the correct parts too! I am not a fix it person but I replaced the parts with one little tool from my pink tool kit! I did it in less than 20 minutes! No instructions either. I was initially disgusted though, because my refrigerator is only 3 years old! For $1700 you would think things would last a little longer.

The bracket that held the crisper lid on right side had broken.

It was very simple taking every thing out and putting new part in. I figure if I had to call a repair person it would have ended up costing us probably around $300.00. We only paid $21.00. We thank you.

OPENED FILTER AREA DOOR TURNED OLD FILTER TO THE LEFT TO UNSCREW. TOOK OUT OLD FILTER THEN REPLACED THE NEW FILTER AND TURNED IT TO THE RIGHT TO TIGHTEN IT, CLOSED COVER AND THAT WAS IT ALL DONE.

One of the pins that is part of the end cap and is used to open and close the pantry door broke. Seems like a lot of folks have had this problem - too light so maybe Amanda need to beef up this part where the pin connection to the end cap.
