Freezer and Refrigerator temperture unstable

  • Customer: Alan from Brandon VT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

My frig was cycling between upper 30's to 60 degrees, the freezer would make ice one day then be melting the next. I started by replacing the CONDENSER FAN MOTOR, relatively easy, unplug the motor, ratchet off the three supporting screws, splice the wires together, attach the ground wire and reinstall. That didn't seem to fix my problem.

I then ordered the Defrost Thermostat and Defrost Timer, based on past advice these were frequently replaced parts. Both installs were easy, the DEFROST TIMER was installed first, one screw holds the housing in the fridge, just unplug and unclip and install the new one. Very easy. This didn't seem to correct the problem overnight. I then installed the DEFROST THERMOSTAT, which was a couple of screws in the back of the freezer and uncip and install the new one. Very easy. This seemed to help the freezer maintain temperature, but the frig was still cycling up and down in temp on a daily basis and I had the temp knob all the way to 7 when it would normally work at 4.

I ordered the TEMPERATURE CONTROL ASSEMBLY. Easy to install, in the same housing as the Defrost timer, unhook some wires, reinstall and run the coiled part toward the back of the housing. This fixed the problem and has maintained my temp in the mid to lower 40's at the setting of 4.

The Ice maker unit had to be removed and the shaft had to also be removed, which required dis-assembling the motor drive. The thickness of the shaft and the bearing fill cup prevents it from simply pushing it in place. Other than that I have Ice.

Replacing the ice maker was the easy part, next morning still no ice so called repairman, replaced fuse in wiring harness, next morning still no ice, called repairman again to find out that thermostat in brand new ice maker is bad, had to reuse old thermostat to make new ice maker work so could not return it to partselect.com. New ice maker cost $108 and repairman $90, expensive lesson learned.

Repair done according to video and instructions. What you need to know is myself and my husband are adverse to all kinds of "simple" repairs because they never go well and we are not handyman kind of persons. This, I must say, was a delightful change in our typical experience of attempting to make our own repairs.
Thanks
Sandy

On arrival, I remove the glass shelf carefully from the box. I cleaned it with soap and water. Placed it where the old one use to be. It fits like a glove. It was easy as pie to order and replace. Thank You.

The video of the installation was the best help I have ever had. Rather that vague written instructions that are usually so poorly written they are of no help, the video showed exactly how to do it. I wish everyone provided videos like this!

Ice Maker Died

When that one came and I went to install it, I found that my fridge was so old (almost 30 years) that the wire harness on the old icemaker could not be transferred to the new one. The old one was hand wired into the guts of the machine with wire nuts and other connectors. The new unit needs a plug in harness to match a plug connection on the ice maker. Also, the bent wire arm that senses ice bin levels was different, old unit hooked in with clips and such, new one pops into a socket in the new ice maker.

I called PartSelect back again, and the clerk spent a lot of time in the books (no parts in the online listings) and found new style connector and wire arm. Another 25 dollars and problem is solved.

Once those parts came, the actual installation was a breeze. Remove three screws, unplug the ice maker from the back wall of the fridge, plug new wire harness into new ice maker and the back wall of the frige, install new ice maker with the same three screws, pop the new style bent wire arm into place and pop the plastic cover from the old ice maker onto the front of the new one. Done! Took me ten minutes (plus two weeks of chasing parts, but only half an hour of actual time in those two weeks).

I let it make a couple of loads of ice that I disposed of (to capture any dust and crud that might have been on or in the new ice maker) and then turned it loose. We had a nice full bin of ice in the morning.

Took under 5 minutes. Removed two screws and unplugged the wire bundle from refrigerator. Removed old unit. Put old wire bundle on new unit. Plugged wire bundle back into refrigerator and remounted the new ice maker. Could not have been easier. Watched the video first, it was very helpful.

Old ice maker stopped working

Removed the old icemaker and installed the new one. The first one we ordered lasted about 4 weeks and pooped out. Parts Select was very nice and gracefully sent another in two days time. This one has been installed and is working fine...Hope it stays that way.

Thanks...Ron Norwood

Ice maker not working.

  • Customer: kurt from Westminster CO
  • Difficulty: Really easy

This was a very easy repair. Of course start by unplugging the power cord. Take out the lower freezer drawer. Unplug the wiring harness from the ice maker at the rear of the freezer. Undo 3 screws with a 1/4" nut driver. The ice maker will come right out. You don't have to undo any water connections, the feed tube just slides into a guide in the ice maker. Once the ice maker is out, unplug the harness from the old one and snap it into the new one. Same with the cover. Reassemble in reserse order. Plug the power cord back in and wait a couple of hours for the familiar sounds of ice cubes falling into the tray.
