I removed the food on the door and placed it in the refrigerator. I placed a plastic sheet over the opening of the refrigerator to keep the cold air in. Then I removed the bracket for the upper hinge, remover the door and placed it onto a table. Then I removed the plastic bearing from the bottom of door. I then replaced it with the new bearing. Then I removed the lower bearing and its bracket from the refrigerator. At this point I had to modify the new lower bracket by removing the alignment tab with a dremel because there wasn’t any hole in the housing for it. Then I attached the new bracket and bearing. Replaced the door and upper hinge and the job was complete. It took only about a half an hour to finish.

Followed the instructions from another person in the Part Select water valve section and from the video on the same page. Excellent instructions and very easy installation. Water dispenser and ice maker began performing properly as soon as the refrigerator was plugged back in to the power.

We decided to get a new fridge, after the " sticker shock " of new refrigerators we decided to repair the one we have. Two screws and one plug and the ice maker was replaced, took out the broken crisper shelf, put in the new one and that was done, instructions were great. I actually had to watch a " how to " video, ( provided by your web site ) to change the shelf support, very easy. thanks, Gary Hoyle

Cost of motor was 70% of complete ice maker. So I changed complete ice maker. Remove food from freezer. Remove ice drawer. Two screws and a four prong plug to change out complete ice maker. Use adjusting screw to assure water completely fills tray but doesn't spill, Suggest you set for less water an one a little each ice cycle until a full cube.

If this happens to you the first thing I would do is shut off the freezer and, using a hair dryer, melt the ice in the ice maker and heat up the water inlet to make sure it is not froze up. Turn the freezer back on and wait to see if that cures the problem. If not, order the new water inlet valve and follow the simple instructions in the video provided on the PartSelect website. I have never have a more pleasant experience with any parts/repair service than I did with PartSelect. After ordering that part it came within the time they stated and their help with the install was great. Also helpful were the other customers talking about their problems and solutions.Thanks to PartSelect I now have Ice and a happy wife. Happy wife--happy life.

Quite making ice

The new inlet valve came with pisco connectors so had to cut the end of the tubes off. Before doing this I marked all the tubes to make sure they were replaced in the correct order. The pisco connectors are great to use and very quick. The total install time was about 20 to 30 minutes. While you have the back of the frig off make sure you vaccuum the fan and coils. It was making ice in less than 20 minutes.

I had to tap the screw holes with a 8/32 tap so that the screws would not bind.

First I watched the PartSelect installation video. Then unplugged the power and shut off the water valve on the wall. I used a 1/4" nut driver and removed (4) screws on the back bottom cover of the refrigerator and removed the cover. I removed the (2) mounting screws on the back lower right side of the refrigerator and removed the triple water valve assembly. I then marked the (4) water lines and (3) solenoid connectors with numbers, to make sure they get connected back in the same place, and then I removed them. I used a retractable blade knife to cut the ends of the water lines perpendicular. I pushed the (4) water lines into the valve holes and plugged the solenoid connectors back onto the new triple valve assembly. I mounted the new triple valve, put the back cover on, turned on the water, checked for water leaks. There were no leaks.Then I plugged in the power and waited for it to fill up the ice tray. It works perfectly now ! And it was really easy ! Thank You PartSelect for making this repair easy for me.

1. Punched the little circle bolt at the top of the drawer support all the way through the refrigerator wall using a hammer and awl. Removed the remainder of the old drawer support. 2. Previous two small alignment prongs were stuck into the alignment holes, so I had to snap off the alignment prongs on the new drawer supports with pliers to make the supports fit flush with the fridge wall. 3. Stuck new drawer supports into holes in the fridge wall and hammered in circle bolts with hammer.
