Ice maker was side mount instead of rear mount as shown in previous insructions. Removed one screw and slide ice maker forward. used flat head screw driver to undo the ice maker plug. The ice maker came right out. Removed old ice maker fill cup and put it on the new ice maker. Slide the new ice maker into place and used the same screw to secure it. Pluged it in and turned on the ice maker. Had new ice in a couple of hours. It comes with a round plug to square plug adapter, new fill cup and fill tube, all of which I didn't use.

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

The ice maker did not make any ice cubes

I pulled the Refrig out of the space so that I could get to the plug and water shut off. After unplugging and turning the water off, I had to remove the 7 screws holding the cardboard cover over the bottom portion of the Refrig. I then had to unloosen the water input to the the valve. Then I removed the screw holding the Water Valve. I then had to unplug the unit from the electrical connectors. After that I had to cut the plastic hoses off the valve. All that was left was to reconnect everything, replace the cardboard covering and do an operational test. Everything worked. The ice maker began to produce ice cubes and there were no leaks.

Ice maker quit, then freezer quit freezing, then food section lost cooling.

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.

Follow PartSelect video on website, had no problems learned a lot

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.

I am more than 80 yrs, always thought I could fix just about everything--but, this looked complicated. Once I received the new icemaker; took a good look where the screw-holes, etc. were, then removed the "old" one. Took about 20 or 30 minutes, then the "new" one was easily installed.
