If you are having this problem, read this. My refrigerator door would not stay closed. This was over a year and a half time period. I thought it was something complicated and told my wife to call a repairman. Thank goodness she does what she does best - not listening to me! I finally had enough and went online and googled my problem and found PartsSelect. PartSelect had a repair video showing how to fix the problem. If you are like me, I'm very cautious about purchasing from a website in which I'm not familiar. PartsSelect is a reputable site (I promise I do not work for them). My refrigerator is over 8 years old and they had the part I needed, a lower door cam, along with a video on how to install the part. This honestly took about 5-10 minutes to do and I did it without any help. I was so aggravated at myself for waiting so long at doing this!! I actually ordered 2 of these parts, just for the next time. You can do this.

I pulled the refrigerator away from the wall, unplugged the electrical cord, and turned off the water going to the refrigerator. I then removed the cover on the bottom rear of the refrigerator by removing 7 or 8 small screws. Luckily the new and old valves were exactly the same except for some color coding. There were 2 screws to remove that attached the valve to the body of the fridge. There were 3 plastic tubes that connected to the valve and 2 wiring harnesses that plugged in. Before removing them, make sure to note which tubes and wires went where. The 3 tubes on the old valve were the push in type, just like the new one. I could not pull 2 of them out like the instructions said. I had to pry them out with a screw driver. In doing so I warped about 1 inch on the end of each tube which I then cut off with a razor blade. The electrical connections pulled out easily. I then pushed each tube back into the new valve which was very easy and pushed the electrical connections in. I attached the valve to the fridge with the 2 screws, turned the water on, plugged in the electrical cord, and checked for leaks. I put the back cover on and was back in business. It took me about 40 minutes but when I was younger could have done in in half the time.

freezer was not consistent in keeping cold enough to keep itiems from defrosting. Fridge was not keeping up to temp. Noticed compressor would try to cycle but would cut out. Gave a Fonzerelli tap "ehhh" to the temp control and controls would kick on and work for short periods.

Remove inside door trim plate. Then removed three screws that held in the light assembly. The only difficult thing was reconnecting the temperature adjustment rod. After replacing this rod you must slide the temperature control slide to midway and this hold the rod in place while reinstalling the light assembly. If I were to do it again it would probably take me half as long.

The old ice maker's protective finish flaked off causing some cubes to stick to the mold and consequently water overflow into the bin below causing ice cubes to fuse into large ice globes.

I disconnected power plug. Pulled ice bin and flip down ice conpartment lid out. Using nutdriver removed screws. My wiring harness is permanently connected to side back wall of frig. so I disconnected wiring plug from ice maker. Installed orig. wire bracket/arm to new ice maker. Connected new ice maker to original wiring plug. Screwed ice maker back in. Had ice a few hours later. It took 2 days for ice bin to refill completely. Saved money by replacing myself vs multiple service tech. trips, service fee, and part cost. Part arrived 3 days after I placed my online order. Thank you PartSelect you have a customer for life.
