After receiving the parts, I clamped on the connector ends, and put on the shrink tubes. Unplug frig, took out the shelves (4) screws, unscrewed back panel (4) screws. Took old thermostat off tube, clipped (2)wires on old thermostat, splice wires, clamped connector on old wires, moved up shrink tubes, and used a heat gun to shrink the wires. Put new thermostat on the tube the old one came off of, put panel, and the shelves back. Pugged frig in. Works great!

Took out the ice box, dumped the ice. Let warm up a bit. Then took out the housing and installed the new one. Works great. Saved a lot of money! Only took a couple days to receive the part. Great service.

I turned off the water, removed the cardboard cover from the back of the refrigerator; removed the 2 screws holding the water valve in place; unscrewed the plastic tubing from the valve; unplugged the wires to each solenoid (3); the old valve had threaded connections for the plastic water lines, the new valve didn't; I had to cut the ferrel off of the plastic lines so I could insert them into the new valve and then press the connector into the valve (I didn't anticipate something like this, but it worked fine); I reconnected the wiring and screwed the valve back into place. The ice maker started making ice and the water stopped dripping from the dispenser. The best $65 I've ever spent.

To describe this replacement as "really easy" is an understatement! The hardest part was digging the socket set out of the tool box. The instructions were well written, as were descriptions of fellow home do it yourself types. Those gave me the confidence to just for it. I am so tickled with myself and the money I saved! My hubby is pretty impressed too! Cathy

followed the video and had little or no trouble loosening or tightening bolts or phillips head screws. The only difficulty was removing the spacer on the door itself. Otherwise a piece of cake. Good video and easy to follow instructions.

No Ice, No Water

Turned off the refrigerator, removed the bottom drawer from refrigerator, then removed the glider bars for the drawer on the left side where the filter chamber is. Removed the filter and then removed the plastic peace guarding the filter chamber. Once that was all removed we removed the screws holding the filter base in place. Now that everything was exposed we removed the inlet and outlet lines from the filter base by pushing in the nobs inside the base and pulling the lines out with some slight elbow grease. After that we just proceeded in reverse. We plugged the filter in after the base was secure to make sure that the fix worked. The repair worked like a charm, was relatively simple and now our fridge is all better with water and ice without a large repair bill :o)

Freezer leaked, no water disp. & Crusher didnt crush

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

First I defrosted the entire unit, both sides for 24 hours. Restarted, I now have water dispensing. (It had apparently frozen) Next I took out the ice crushing part and took it apart, (a few screws) by removing the broken floppy piece; the small plastic floppy door that allows ice to crush, replaced this small piece, rather than replacing the entire big plastic piece that I ordered. Used a slot screw driver removed the old floppy piece that was broken and removed the same piece from the new one and switched them out. Reassembled the entire unit (a few screws), put the ice back in and it works great. I got the instructions for taking apart this from this site, however, it was fairly easy to figure out. Just be patient with the plastic parts.

Maker would not make ice

  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Socket set

I suspected that the On/Off Switch was the problem. (Pressing and holding the switch 'on' for 15 seconds to recycle the icemaker did not bring the ice level control arm to life.) I decided to replace the whole icemaker rather than just the switch. (Do not try to replace the switch...almost impossible.) Steps: 1/Remove the Icecream shelf (lift up the front lip and pull out; 2/remove the Icecube holder tray (lift up the front and pull out.) 3/Remove the two hex head screws which are facing you above the ice maker. 4/Pull the icemaker slowly out and and down to reveal the electrical wiring, and unplug the electrical plug. 5/Follow new instructions re the water hopper and the ice-flapper-thingy on the new icemaker, and turn the new switch to 'off' before you start to install it. 6/Plug in the new icemaker, and push the electrical wiring down to the left as you push the icemaker into place, make sure the back edge of the water hopper goes under the water spout. 7/Replace and tighten the two hex head screws. 8/Press and hold the switch 'on' for 15 seconds or more to cycle the icemaker (the ice level control arm will slowly raise up and then go back down). 9/Replace the Tray and the Shelf. 10/Allow the icemaker time to cool and freeze the newly injected water.(This may take up to 6 hours.) 11/Listen for the sweet sound of the dropping icecubes.

Removed old water pump and cut off ends of all lines. Plugged them into each water inlet/outlet and turned it on. Instant water to dispenser but took about 6 hours for ice maker to get water. Had to prime the ice maker. Works great and saved a lot of money ordering parts from you. Thanks.

just put it in the old hole. the hard part was getting the old one out. you have to poke the center piece in to remove. otherwise you will break your fridge. then you have to to pull the center piece out before you put new in.
