icemaker stop working

  • Customer: Neure from Bronx, NY
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

It was simple, three screws two at the top and one at the bottom. Then unplug the wires that ran from the fridge to the icemaker. Reverse the pocedure to put in the new icemaker and take a jumper wire and start the cycle, finish. It was a simple exchange. The icemaker was a little expensive, but it works. Thanks partselect.

The floating baffle was cracked which prevented the metal ice crushers from going around.

Ice dispenser and water dispenser not working

  • Customer: Joseph from Naples, FL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Was surprisingly easy. Hardest part was taking the cover off the front to get access to the control bracket and switches. Can be done by prying two notches on underside of cover until they pop. Then slide up and off. Once off I could immediately tell the plastic clips on control bracket were broken. So replacing fixed that issue. My other issue was the ice dispenser door would not stay closed and sealed. I noticed that the plastic hook that holds metal dispenser pin in place was broken. Had trouble finding that part online so I superglued it in place and that has held it just fine. Now both my ice dispenser and water dispenser are working after buying a $10 part. This site is awesome. I am sure I would have paid $200 for this from a repairman.

Installing new "wiper" at bottom of ice in-door ice dispenser

  • Customer: Peter J from Montgomery, TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The plastic "wiper" attached to the bottom of the ice "auger" in the ice dispenser unit broke. (It was made from a plastic that was not up to the freezing temps and heavy ice loads it had to move.) The new unit seemed to be of a different type of nylon/plastic. Problem was that the small machine screw at the bottom of the auger assembly could not be removed because of corrosion. I had to drill it out. Choices then were to purchase a new auger for about 60 bucks or reassemble the unit with a new 6-32 machine screw. There will not be enough metal left to allow it to be tapped so simply clean it out well and glue in the new screw with JB Weld. Allow to cure over night and you're back in business. Ours works fine so far. Good luck!

First, removed the top hinge (3 screws), then lifted the door off the bottom hinge. Replaced the Cam on the bottom of the door and then the Cam on the bottom hinge (one screw for each). Placed the door back on the bottom hinge, reinsert the top hinge into the door and secure top hinge to the refrig with the 3 screws original removed. EASY!!

The how to video told me what to check to determine what part was probably broken. Then another video showed me how to take it apart. It gave me the name, number, and a photo of the part. I ordered it from Part Select without even checking with another retailer since they gave me the information to do it myself, saving me lots of $ for repair labor costs! Then I watched the repair video again and put it back together! It works! It was simple and I really appreciate this service! Thank You

Remove drip pan from indoor ice dispensing system remove to bottom screws holding dispenser faceplate .lift faceplate out of the way exposing the bracket and ice and water dispenser micro switches be careful in removing microswitch, the one I removed came apart and had a little difficulty putting it back together ,used super glue and fix that problem. No instructions came with bracket so take your time. This is a relatively simple job any one should be able to do it.

Very loud clicking noise when opening/closing door

  • Customer: Ben from Port Saint Lucie, FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

I did it a bit different from instructions mainly because I disassembled it to troubleshoot before going on line to find part and "easier" instructions.I had a 5" block of wood and cut a shim to use with that to hold the door up. I got on my hands and knees with a mirror and removed the lower hinge plate then the screws holding the upper and lower cams. These both were quite worn so I just took them to my shop and with a hand grinder I rounded off the sharpo corners of the cogs of both cams and then reassemble the hinge plate and cams. This eliminated the loud clicking and the door closed easily but I was afraid it woulod not "Auto Close" when needed so I went online to find this page with the parts needed along with wonderful instructions. I ordered both upper and lower cams which came 2 days later (THANKS). I installed them my way since I did not want to empty the door contents and remove the whole door. I used the block, mirror and nut driver to R&R the bottom hinge plate and both cams. Time was still less than 15 minutes, Easy Fix, Thanks guys! Cheers, Ben

Removed old water filter by simply twisting the the cap that houses it at the bottom of the refrigerator and replaced with new water filter. No fuss, no muss! Very impressed. Also, I was quite pleased to have received the water filter that was designed specifically for the whirlpool model that I own. I expected to receive some generic-type model based upon the reasonable price that I paid. Kudos to partselect!
