Just as your video described, although due to the age of the fridge, it took a bit longer to remove the defective switch. Your video made this so simple, I can't imagine why we lived with a dark fridge for so long! I was ready to buy a whole new fridge, as repairmen are often nonexistent for small repairs. I am the biggest fan of your company & it's repair video. THANK YOU SO MUCH

I pulled down the wire around the glass cover...released on end of the wire from its holder being careful to not let the glass cover drop. Unscrewed the bulb and replaced with replacement. Easy, easy.

I did a web search to trouble shoot my fridge's problem and I found PartSelect's site. There I found the answers to the problems I had, along with very useful videos for exactly what I needed, and how to fix my refrigerator. I reviewed the videos a couple of times and figured that even I could do what was shown, so I ordered the two sets of parts I decided I needed. I got the parts in 2 days (AMAZING), and for only about $7.50 shipping - WOW! While I was waiting on parts, I removed the freezer's internal back panel and put a fan in front of the open freezer section to thaw it out - it was solid ice, and it took about 20 hours to thaw. When the parts arrived, I followed the installation procedures exactly as shown in the videos, and everything went smoothly, and everything worked when I restarted the fridge. TWO THINGS TO REMEMBER: (1.) On the defrost timer, be sure and "reset" the internal clock before starting the unit... with a screw driver in the timer's slot, turn clockwise until you hear a heavy click, then slowly turn it for about 2 or 3 more clicks. (2) In the freezer compartment, be sure to put tape over the water drain hole to keep any dropped screws from entering the drain. EASY - PEASY! I sure wasn't ready to buy a new fridge, especially when these parts and shipping only cost about $90 and my labor only took about 20 minutes. Thanks PartSelect ! ! ! !

Removed everything from freezer, Removed back panel, defrosted coils. removed thermostat top left, cut wires and used heat shrink to splice back together, clipped thermostat back on. I actually replaced the defrost timer and defrost heater also. Best bet is to do all 3 at one time. Part Select will have the new parts to you in days. Great Service and the online repair man is great. I saved hundreds of dollars doing myself.

The back of the freezer wall would ice up, then suddenly shut down the whole system. The refrigerator would get too warm. I tried turning it off for a day, then back on the next day after it thawed. Seemed to work for about 10 days, then the same problem again. I found the solution after looking

The removal of the back panel was easy, but had to completely defrost the back coils before I could work on it. Once it was completely free of ice, it was very easy to remove the old heaters and replace with the new ones. It was obvious this was the problem when I saw the black smoky glass tubes with the coils inside being burned into. It took me a total of about 20 minutes to put it in and get everything re-installed. The only challenge I had was getting the back cover on, but found I hadn't tucked the wires far enough inside and it was putting the back cover in a bind. I'm very grateful for the tips and help from PartSelect to help me diagnose this problem. We almost replaced the refrigerator, but after spending a little over $30.00, it's as good as new. Thanks PartSelect!

I removed the lower cover plate and placed a small scissor jack (used my car jack) under the refrigerator door, loosened the upper hinge, slightly raised jack to take the weight off of the lower hinge, removed the hinge with a 5/16 nut driver and the cam with a 5/16 socket. Installed new hinge and cam, removed door support and secured top hinge, check operation. Worked GREAT, did not have to remove door.

The lady of the house was happy. Started shopping for a new fridge. Went on line and found this site with U-Tube video on how to replace the defrost timer. Armed with this newly found knowledge I purchased one from a local vendor for $ 40. Parts Select had it listed for $26. The lady of the house had her doubts and a new unit all picked out so I had to move quick. I removed the rear cover in the freezer section. Put down a couple towels and defrosted the evaporator coils and installed the new defroster timer. Tested the old defrost timer and confirmed it was bad. After 24 hrs the temperatures were good. Still the lady of the house was still shopping. To prove to her I am a refrigerator repairman I pulled the the back cover off the freezer section off again to show her what an expert I am. Dang if it wasn't frozen up again. Checked the defrost heater for continuity and found it to be faulty as well.. Defrosted coils again and ordered new defrost heater from parts select for $68. Local vendor wanted over $120 and it wasn't in stock. Got part delivered regular shipping in less then 72 hrs. By now I am a pro at taking off back cover and defrosting coils. Replaced defrost heater in less then 10 min. Put unit back in service. A week later removed back cover and inspected. All is well. The lady of the house is looking at vacations now instead. I highly suggest this site to save a ton of money. A volt meter helps a lot when it comes to trouble shooting these issues. Bottom line Parts Select saved the day not mention a few cases of beer!

Door would not close.

With my wife's help, we emptied the door shelves and removed the door to the kitchen table. The video and instructions for replacing the parts were 100% right. We probably spent more time cleaning the door bottom and gasket than actually changing the hinge assembly! The job went very smoothly and saved us from overspending on a repair to this old fridge, or worse, making a quick decision on buying a new one.

Refrigeratior door of side by side would not close

I viewed a how-to video on partselect.com. I removed all items from the door shelves. Used a screw driver to remove the top "hinge" plate. Used a nutdriver to remove the door hinge plate. Removed door, laid on it's side-hinge side up (if you don't have a helper, lay it on a flat service). Simply removed the broken bottom plate and replaced with new part, and reinstalled on refrigerator. Super Simple!

The girlfriend opened the door and then it wouldn't shut on its own or stay closed

Empty door first then take a phillip heads screw driver and unscrewed the top hinge cover 1 screw. Then used 5/16 nut driver to loosen top hinge from fridge. remove door by lifting and then lay on table to replace the lower washer that is held in by 2 screws and you only need to loosen one all the way leaving one in to align then replace and tighten it up your done.
