The reason it took me longer than what should have been a 15 minute repair is due to the fact that I could not figure out how the shaft came apart. I found an instructional video on Parts Select website that showed me that the shaft was held together by a reverse treaded, round nylon nut on the very front of the shaft. Just use a pair of pliers to grasp the nut and rotate it clockwise, after that you just need to lay the parts out in order as they come off the shaft so you can put it back together again.

I took ice bin apart to ensure what part I needed. Got Serial # & Model # from inside fridge. Online search for Whirlpool Parts to check out prices. Settled on PartSelect for best price. Quick service too!!! Before putting it all back together, I reviewed the video. It was pretty good. Just left it up & after each couple of steps, I'd look at what was next. Went together with no problem. There could have been more details given, like ensuring that certain things lined up during reassembly. There was dead time when the narrator could have given pointers.

Water was running into refrig from freezer and ice cream was soft

  • Customer: William from Delano MN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

We wasted time looking for the electrical schematic on our refrigerator (the first step in the instructions). By skipping that and reading further in the instructions, the type of cooling that the refrigerator has can easily be determined by the colors of the wires that go to the defrost timer. You need to know this to set up the timer properly for your specific refrigerator. Had I just started there, the entire repair would have taken less than 10 minutes. Very simple repair and it works like a charm, no more water coming into the refrigerator and the ice cream is rock hard. Glad we didn't have to spend lots on a new appliance. Thanks Part Select.com!

Refrigerator not cooling

  • Customer: Bryan from Midland NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Exactly how the part select video described it. Threw a little curve ball figuring out which timer setting to set it to. But the instructions provided with defrost timer walked me right through it. No problem. After installing part nothing happened for about ten minutes, which had me second guessing each and every step. Then, like magic, cold air began blowing. What a relief. Thanks so much, love this site. Refrigerator works like new!

Unit ran for long periods of time and often did not cool. Once the unit cut off, it too a long time to start back up causing the until to warm up.

This was a very easy fix. I utilized the short repair video for both parts and the entire install time was 40 min max. I installed both parts per the instructions, plugged the unit in and waited 20-30 minutes for the unit to reset itself. The Fridge cut back on and its running well within guidelines. In fact, it's cooler and running better than the last 6 months. Thank you "Part Select" for helping me save real dollars.

The refrigerator was running but blowing hot air, everything in freezer had defrosted.

First I watched the video on your website, it was quite helpful. It showed me the location of the part to be replaced. Then I used the nut driver to remove a couple of screws, and slowly pulled the cover off . Once I pulled the cover down I could see the part that needed replacing, it had a couple of phillips head screws holding it in place, I removed those screws and unplugged the defrost timer, taking note of the color of the wires. Then I took the new defrost timer and attached the loose wire to the correct terminal according to the directions(this is where the color of your wires comes in), then I plugged in the new defrost timer and replaced the screws. I then reattached the cover making sure not to pinch any of the wires, and replaced the screws. It was so easy I was sure I did something wrong and it wouldn't work, but I plugged the refrigerator back in and let it sit for about 20 minutes and then when I checked it was running cool. I'm 55 years old and never had the nerve to try anything like this before but since my husband passed away I've had to try things myself or replace a lot of appliances. If I can do it anyone can.

I ordered both the defrost timer and thermostat thinking the problem was the thermostat but scince the two parts were housed in the same part of the refrigerator I decided to replace both parts. Watching the YouTube video made this job a complete success!! The parts arrived within 24 hours! This girl is a VERY happy customer. Thank you!

Freezer not cooling. Temperature rising.

  • Customer: Jeff from Austin TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy

One day the ice cream in the freezer seemed mushy, but the ice was still frozen. There was not water in the ice bin. However, the problem resolved itself. This suggested that the defrost timer had become stuck for an extended time, but then continued to run. The fact that the freezer went back to frozen, implies that all the components of the cooling loop (compressor, condenser & fan, evaporator & fan) were fine. It was possible that the problem was caused by a bad defrost (?evaporator?) thermostat but everything I saw on line suggested that the defrost timer is the culprit about 40 - 50% of the time. Anyway, I followed the instructions in the on-line video at this site for replacing the defrost timer and it was easy. It would have only taken 15 minutes, but I spent a while reading the defrost timer instructions and hunting down a schematic for my refrigerator, to determine which pin the loose wire should go on.

first confirm that freezer is cold. if is frozen solid it needs to be defrosted. take the freezer items out,take shelf out, bottom cover, 2 screws. then ice maker, 3 screws and unplug wires. then back panel 2 screws. In refrigerator compartment were the controllers are located, look under it you will see 1 hole, insert a flat end screw driver and turn clockwise till it stops. this action will turn on your defroster, also the compressor will stop. is the heater melting the ice? if so soak up water and clean tray, use hair dryer in drain hole to aid in the defrost, check tray under fridge and if its dry keep defrosting. it should take half an hour. now take the flat head screw driver and turn the defrost timer clock wise out of defrost mode a quarter turn or so. the compressor should come back on, soon after the fan in the freezer compartment should also come on. this steps lets you no that the defrost heater works, fan works and drain hole is clear. if its defrosted place parts back in the reverse order. if not defrosted replace heater or mother board. in refrigerator compartment were the dials are located their are 2 screws, one on the left and the other on the right side take them out, the cover will drop down, you will find wiring schematics you will need them to install defrost timer. is timer making ticking sound? if no replace timer. new timer will be different from original so follow instructions that come with it. timer is above were the hole is located. the plastic hold downs will break when you try to take them off, unplug fridge, lift timer out and remove from wire harness. the new timer has a black wire that slips over either 1 or 2 depending on color of wire on the wire harness. check schematics. some silicone adhesive will keep unit in place, ad some into the plastic shaft prior to installation, plug wire harness return wiring instruction along with new one inside of cover, plug in fridge, turn defrost timer clock wise with flat head screw driver making sure that you hold timer from above so it wont move. did compressor come on?. put all paper work inside of cover before installing cover

Ice Bin Auger Drum Broke

very simple ! Just follow the instruction video on parts select . It don't get any more simple than that ! Learned a lot just watching that video . I picked up from that how to install an ice maker also . I cant believe I paid a repairman $100 last year to install an ice maker on my refrigerator either . I could have done it myself for 1/3 the cost and still had a brand new ice maker . I asked him about fixing the ice bin then he said they was no way . Said the best thing for me to do was try to find a used one would probably cost me about $100 . I think the total cost for the parts was about $30 here . And BTW takes about 2 min to change out an ice maker . I will never call another repair man to come into my house again unless they do away with the internet .
