Ice maker door broke allowing open hole to freezer

  • Customer: Clifford from Madison IN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

The ice maker panel on the freezer door detaches by removing two screens at the bottom of the panel behind the drip tray. My son held the panel while I removed three screws holding the ice chute cover. The ice chute door is attached to a spring loaded bracket. I only needed the actual door, but it was just as easy to replace the insulation and the seal. The seal was starting to show wear. I then replaced the ice chute cover and tested the ice maker. With everything working correctly, I reinstalled the panel in the door.

The ice maker stopped making ice.

I did a few tests with the old ice maker and determined that it was the ice maker itself that was faulty. The replacement part I ordered exceeded my expectations in the time it took to get the part. I reused the arm, wire harness and clamps from the old icemaker. Then it was a simple install into the bottom freezer compartment, turning on the water supply and bingo...lots of ice cubes.

Broken ice bucket and broken helix end cap.

I pulled off the plastic shield from the front of the ice bucket. This exposed the two screws that I needed to remove to disassemble the ice crusher mechanism. Once the screws were removed, I was able to remove the helix and replace the end cap that was broken and place it in the new ice bucket. If I would have known it was this easy, I would have changed this out a year ago, instead of doing without crushed ice through the door for so long. Thanks PartSelect. com! I am a customer for life!

Ice maker just stopped making ice

  • Customer: Thomas from Valencia PA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

This was the third icemaker replaced since January 1999. Improvement need to be made in the design of the icemaker so that more than 2-3 years of life is available.
The most difficult part was disconnecting the power plug in the back of the icemaker. You must squeeze the upper and lower tabs together and pull out at the same time to disconnect. Once this is done, take out one nut head screw, lift up on the icemaker and remove from the hanger. Be careful that you don't break the plastic tabs on the hangers. Replace new icemaker in reverse, feed water supply where it must go in the back, resnap onto hangers, replace the nut head screw and snap in the power plug. It took about 2 hours before the icemaker began making ice. It has been working fine ever since. PS. I saved about $200.00 over having a repairman come in and replace the unit.

Light switch had broken off and so the light would not go on when the door was opened. Vegetable crisper drawer had broken along the sides.

We unplugged the refrigerator, used a knife to pry out the old switch. Cut the extra prong off of the new switch and connected the switch to the wire connectors. Slid the switch back into place plugged the refrigerator back into the outlet and . . . . . . Wah, lah, the light and switch worked again. We washed and then simply slid the vegetable crisper into the holder and replaced the one that had broken. This was a really great experience and it was quick and easy to fix on our own.!

Ice maker eitehr wouldn't make ice, or made odd shaped cubes

  • Customer: J. Bradley from Wellsville NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

First, I shut off the water going to the refrigerator, then removed the ice bin. Then I loosened the two screws on the top of the ice maker (the one toward the front was a little tricky, since you can't see it at all), then removed the screw that fastens the lower bracket to the side of the frig. Then I lifted up on it slightly to remove it from the two upper screws, then unplugged the wiring harness from the side of the refrigerator and lifted the whole unit out of the frig.

I then removed the plastic cover on the front of the ice maker, pressed on the tab to remove the wiring harness from the old ice maker, and installed it on the new ice maker. I then removed the metal arm from the old ice maker and installed it on the new unit as well. The last part that I moved from the old ice maker to the new one was the lower bracket, as the bracket on the new ice maker was bent during shipping.

Once those parts were swapped, I put the plastic cover on the new ice maker, plugged the wiring harness back into the side of the frig, routed the fill tube into the back on the ice maker assembly, and set the unit back on the two upper screws. I then put the screw back in the lower bracket, tightened the two upper screws, and then put the ice bin back in and turned the water back on. After a couple of hours, I threw out the first couple of batches of ice and it is now working as it had in the past.

I also noticed, when looking at the old ice maker, that the black plastic coating was coming off the ice cube tray, so it was a good time to be replacing it anyway. Overall, a very easy job (I was prepared for swearing, parts being slightly off, etc.) and it would have been a shame to have paid someone to do it.

We broke the vegetable drawer. So every time we tried to open it, the drawer would fall out. It was upsetting because the frig was pretty new and we use the drawer a lot.

We pulled out the old drawer and set it on the counter to get to room temperature. My husband was afraid if we tried to pull off the white handle when it was cold the plastice might be too brittle and break. When it was room temp, we pulled off the handle and slippped it on the new drawer and slid it into the frig. It was great to have it working again and like new!

I than changed a few parts from the old icemaker to the new and reattached the new ice maker to the ref. and plugged the wire back in. everything is working fine. No problems. Also I was very happy with the ordering process. Thank you!!

Fridge missing agitator assembly and ice bucket.

  • Customer: Ron from Deerfield IL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

While ordering the assembly, I had thought that the ice bucket was included but it wasn't. So I ordered the ice bucket afterwards. Maybe a little more clarity as far as what parts come in the whole assembly would save some time. All in all, the agitator was very easy to install, along with the ice bucket. After securing the agitator to the existing assembly with two screws, the ice bucket slipped right into place. Easy to install.

I simply needed to replace the drawer. Customer service Really Is Customer Service at this company! The young lady with whom I spoke on the phone was courteous, knowledgeable and efficient. She knew what I neeeded from my rather inept description. I was told the drawer would arrive in 10 to 12 days, but I actually received it in 3!!!!
