First I obtained the manual to the refrigerator. I identified the screws to be removed. I turned off the water then unplugged the water lines. I then replaced the Water Filter Base and reassemble the parts. Within minutes of turning on the water, water and ice making had returned. I was a hero for saving the family $200 in parts and labor.

After entering the model/serial number of my appliance, the PartSelect website helped me easily find the parts I needed with clear exploded diagrams of my particular model. Ordering was quick and painless. I ordered the parts on a Sunday and they arrived on my doorstep on Wednesday. Exact fit, easy swap out of old and new parts and the job was done in 10 minutes. When the shelf broke on a 6 year old refrigerator, I figured it would be a huge pain to get it replaced. Not so at all. Easy, intuitive and fast. PartSelect gets a big thumbs up in my book!

Leaking water valve

  • Customer: Robert from Liberty Twp, OH
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Wrench (Adjustable)
  • 5 of 7 people found this instruction helpful
I ordered the part from PartSelect using the part number located on the valve itself. The part was delivered in less than 48 hours from the time I entered it. Replacing the valve was easy and went according to the online video instructions provided by PartSelect. The only thing extra was that I had to replace the brass compression fitting on the copper tubing connected to the inlet of the valve. The old one would not seal properly. The compression fitting was about $1.50 at Home Depot. This is my third purchase from PartSelect and I continue to be impressed by them.

Broken Water Dispenser

  • Customer: Scott from Fond du Lac, WI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I unscrewed the water dispenser and removed the broken piece. Take your time, it is only about 8 screw that need to come out to reach the area for the new part. The only tricky thing about the fix is a spring behind the part. Make sure its lined up, and you should be good to go. Good luck – take your time.

Read the previous instructions given by other responders, they're spot on. But, in short. . .
Remove all food items from the inside of the door.

Remove Phillips head screw holding top hinge cover, remove cover.

Remove top hinge bolts, making sure not to let the door fall.

Lift door off of bottom hinge.

Dig-out broken bearing.

Install new bearing.

Re-assemble door in reverse order.

**Removing the broken bearing piece turned-out to be the most time consuming part of the job. Incredibly easy fix.

Icemaker worked sporadically, infrequently, not at all

  • Customer: Allen from Palmer Lake, CO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)

Not knowing the history of the refrigerator/freezer and observing that the icemaker would cycle (ice ejector fingers would rotate when the off/on arm was toggled), I concluded that the water valve must have some hard water scale in it which was causing it to stick. I replaced the water valve and the exact same behavior continued. By elimination, I concluded that the microswitch in the icemaker must be sticking. I removed the icemaker, used a hair blow-dryer to heat/dry out the microswitches and then a little shot of WD-40 on the mechanical arms, switches, and cams fixed it.
