Ordered new part received it quick. Removed two nuts to remove old pantry side. remove drawer slide from old part and replace on new part. Re-attach pantry end cap. replace glass and brackets reinstall drawer? Done! really simple. Instructions on web site and with new part.

The pnatry end cap broke within the first year of owning the refrigerator...because of that the lower veggie bin door has not connected to the side for the past 2-3 years! A visiting friend said the same thing had happened to their refrig and that she ordered a part on line and repaired it herself.

The repair was very straight-forward with using a socket set to remove the side panel and replace it. This also gave be a chance to give the refrig a good cleaning:) I was a bit worried about "popping" the cover in place, but it went in smoothly. I have decided that one of the causes of the breakage was lifting the cover manually and not allowing it to open automatically as the veggie drawer was opened. Hopefully, this will prevent future issues. I'm SO glad I found your site and will definitely use it again and refer friends!

Shut off water supply. filter is located in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator on the inside. open the drop-down door. by hand pull the filter downward. then twist it to the left one quarter turn. it should pull out. I replaced it with a filter bypass plug. you can purchase a high quality filter to replace.it don't buy cheap filter.I made that mistake! hope this helps good luck!

to repair the center rail, all I did was remove the food and the top glass and insert the rail!!! to repair the end cap all I did was remove the big drawer and remove the broken end cap and replace with the new one. My only thought is this is the third end cap I have had to replace not very sturdy construction where the lid hangs

I'm a pretty handy person generally but I had to call on my engineer neighbor to help. I've never soldered before so I didn't feel comfortable installing the thermistor. I had everything ready for him so all he did was cut the existing thermistor out, strip the wires on the replacement , solder and tape and he was seriously done in 10 minutes! I replaced everything and plugged the fridge in to find that my fridge still freezes everything. I have now ordered the damper control and gasket to hopefully fix this problem.
