Identifying the part on the parts diagram took the longest. Finding the screw driver bit that would remove the old screw that held the original shelf support took longer than the actual repair.

Once I identified the bit that would remove the screw, the rest of the repair took 5 minutes. I removed the screw and discarded the remains of the original but now broken shelf support. With the same screw I simply attached the new shelf support that I received from PartSelect.com. End of story.

The fan stopped running and water was leaking from unit.

I unplugged the fridge. I removed the back panel. Took apart the fan motor housing unhooked the wire harness. Then reassembled the new motor to the housing rehooked the harness. I put the back panel back together and replugged in the fridge and the fan came right on.

A very cold and brittle switch in a 17 year old fridge. Used screwdrivers to pry out with some resistance Had to cut the molded plug in half and split wires, because replacement contacts were farther apart than the original. End result, works great.

I noticed that the refrigerator was having trouble maintaining temperature. Thought it might be time for new one until I found out that a new frig was $5k to $7K. Just happened to notice that the light switch didn't look quite right (was not sitting sqaure to the door). Once I pressed it it came loose. I then realized the the lights were staying on (50 watts of heating). Replaced the switch and the frig started working like new.
