Watched the video....it was perfect. Just needed a Phillips screwdriver, needle-nose pliers and a 3/8 socket. The cam was shattered, so I had to pull it out the old, broken one with the needle-nose pliers. The whole thing took about 20 minutes. Really appreciate that video!

Orginal pin failed. I got tired of doing a balancing act with food on the shelf to take weight off the missing pin.

Just like the video. I had pulled all the parts of the old pin out of the frig months ago. I had tired to buy a replacement pin, but the local supply store could not get the correct part. I finally did a search and found your website. I was impressed with the pictures and the "how to" video.

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Had a leak every night from refrigerator couldn't understand where from. Went on line and found some articles. I was referred to this sight by ads the articles and then in how to. I was pleased that a customer wrote their own instructions on what to do it was more concise clear and made preparation easier. First label towel cup and bucket needed too. Turn off water supply and electrical cord unplug then remove cover behind refrigerator vacuum and clean then. Water makes a mess so clean dry first. Then mark your hoses to remember order. Next remove old inlet and put in bucket it's pressure clamps so push in and it locks I chose to suction pipes and check for damage to pipes pin holes etc next I inserted into new inlet in order. At that time I turned water valve on checked for leaks at initial insert and new inlet. Next I plugged in unit cord. Waited. No leaks so far left for 30 minutes ran ice machine and water dispenser waited 20 minutes no leaks yet. Unplugged refrigerator unit. Installed the inlet completely to base and closed back paper panel after wiping water. Waited 24 hours then smiled no leak. Job done so far 2 weeks all clear. Hope this helps you will need screws driver and wrench for copper or main line I did find same part for less but this sight help me with good instructions the one they provide is for engineers architects lol not me I'm DYI

water leaking in freezer and creating icicles

  • Customer: Kerry from Clinton MA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

The old ice maker came out very easy. Remove the ice tray and the upper shelf. Using a nutdriver, loosen the two screws that the unit hangs from and lift the unit up and over the heads of the screws. Then disconnect the electrical harness and the unit is free. To replace the new unit in the freezer, connect the wire harness and hang the unit from the two screws making sure the water feed tube directs into the fill cup. Then tighten the screws. The unit I installed had instructions telling you how to manually advance the unit. I did that so I could see the ice maker fill the first time and check that the ice maker did not overflow. The unit worked perfectly. I had also ordered a water inlet valve, but after replacing the ice maker, my problem was solved so I will be returning the water inlet valve.

Removed the Ice Bucket and Cover. Unbolted the two screws that attach the ice maker to the rear of the refrigerator panel and unplugged the ice maker. Plugged in the new ice maker and attached the two mounting screws. Reinstalled the cover and ice bucket and pressed the ice maker on button for 15 seconds. Voila, we have ice again! Very easy. And the part was $30 cheaper than my local appliance parts store.

1) cleared remaining parts of broken crisper supports by pushing them into refrigerator insulation(pushed on 'pegs' so 'peg' holes in side of plastic inner liner of refrigerator were clear. 2) Was unable to fully place new crisper supports into postiion. 3) Then, out of despiration, used small light hammer to gently tap on largest 'pin.' I was surprised to see this 'pin' enter into plastic side of refrigerator and then to see crisper support was secure when 'pin'/peg' was flush with new crisper support. 4) then returned crisper to correct postion; supports held. 5) WARNING-DO NOT OVERLOAD CRISPERS!! I BELIEVE THIS CAUSED 'PIN'/'PEG' FAILURE INITIALLY! I don't know if cause was volume too high with crisper forced into place OR if the crisper mass/weight was the culprit. SUGGEST weight limit less than 7.5 lbs.; don't attempt to load in more volume than top of crisper.

not freezing, refrigerator not cooling, back of freezer icing up

  • Customer: Mary K from Bristol IN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

I first determined the problem. I found PartSelect.com through online search. I ordered the part online Sunday morning. Part arrived Tuesday afternoon(Christmas eve) and I installed it that night! Now I am a gal mind you, but I am pretty handy. I pulled out the fridge, unplugged it and removed the back panel, easy. Then I used a heat gun on low the defrost the 'defroster' which had REALLY iced up bad. It had iced up so much,in fact, it had disconnected the evaporator fan connection. I clipped the wires. Stripped the ends, slid on the shrink tubing supplied, connected the wires with the crimp connectors and heated the shrink tube. I also put another piece of shrink tube on the fan connector so it would be more secure. Put the panel back on, plugged it back in and started working like a champ!! I am so proud of myself and likely saved at least $250.00 on a service call! Total cost for this repair, $22.00!! :D

I noticed that the two gears weren't meshing together so upon inspection I saw that one of the gears had an inner piece missing making it weak so it kept popping out away from the other great. I ordered the new gear and unscrewed the old one off and put the new one on. So easy. It made Ice beautiful after that

This was the first time I ever installed a water inlet valve in a refrigerator. I viewed the Parts Select youtube repair video that is available online. In fact, I viewed it a couple times. Ultimately, the actual installation of the water inlet valve went exactly as shown in the youtube video. I did not experience any problems with the installation and was quite happy with the experience.

no water flowed to the ice maker

1. Turn off water in line to refrigerator. 2. disconnect hose from refrigerator. 3. Remove back cardboard panel at bottom of refrigerator. 4 Remove 2 screws holding in the valve assembly at bottom right. 5. best way I found to remove hoses (all color coded) is to cut with razor knife at the white collar. cut clean and square. 6. disconnect electrical (also color coded) 7. connect hoses to valve assembly by pushing hose firmly into hole. If you are familiar with PEX then this is the same. Reconnect electrical. Reconnect to refrigerator... 3,2,1 your done. It will take a couple cycles to get the air out of the lines.

Hinge bearing at the bottom of the refrigerator-side door died of old age--broke into pieces.

I followed the instructions provided in the Part Select video and replaced the bearing. The most time consuming part of the job was emptying (and then cleaning) the items stored in the bins inside the door shelves. Removing the broken bearing was a little more difficult because mine was old and broken and I didn't have an empty table to lay the door on like the video studio did--the floor worked in place of the table.
