It took longer to get the part than it took to repair the water inlet. The help from the staff was very responsible and the repair direction off of the net very clear and understandable. I order the wrong part and was offered assistance and directed to the correct part than there were no issues but clear sailing.

Awesome price, awesome service, and great experience. I must say I was apprehensive about repairing my refrigerator’s ice maker, but the pieces of plastic and the $150 estimate to repair the bad part helped to motivate me into action. I quickly found the part I needed on your website at a reasonable price and placed the order. I fully expected to wait 6 – 8 weeks for the part to arrive but to my great surprise it arrived in just two days! I maintained and repaired complex ordinance and missiles in the Air Force for 21 years but a couple of steps in the repair of this icemaker stymied me, until that is, I watched your repair video! What a wonderful resource that was, step-by-step instructions on the entire repair…. Armed with this resource a guy just can’t go wrong and in short order the repair was complete and I am back to crushing ice again. What a wonderful service you provide and I couldn’t be a happier customer. You folks at Partselect.com have your stuff together, keep up the good work.
Mr. William L. Austin, M.Ed.

Both sides stopped getting cold

I'm a 65 year old widow on a limited SS income, so I needed to get my refrigerator fixed as cheaply as possible. Partselect's troubleshooting guides took me right to the problem. I ordered the part on a Friday and it arrived the next Tuesday. It probably took me a little longer than it would a repairman, but I did it myself with just a screwdriver and a nut driver and it only cost me $45 instead of the $200 plus it costs my daughter to have someone else replace hers two years ago. Always remember to unplug amy electrical device before removing the covers or attempting any repair. All I had to do was remove the lower back cover on the refrigerator and, using the partselect diagram, locate the casing that covered the start relay and the overload switch on the left side of the compressor. I popped the casing off with the screwdriver, pulled the relay off (it's sits on two prongs), and remove the red terminal wire from the relay. Installation of the new relay is the reverse steps of the removal. Thanks, Partselect! I will be doing business with you again if the need ever arises.

Water wouldn't come out of dispenser but ice dispenser was working fine.

I watched the video and removed the tray, but there were no screws underneath it! We tried prying it off with no luck, and then I read the directions from another customer. We removed the door handle, pressed down on the dispensing unit while using a flat head screwdriver to pry off the dispenser unit at the bottom (There are two little slots where the screwdriver fits perfectly.) I was afraid of the thing cracking since it is so old, but it did fine. This was the only hard part. After this was off, the rest of the repair followed the video exactly and it was super easy and took about 5 minutes! As I was detaching the old control bracket, I saw that it was completely broken on the right side. I knew then that this was the correct fix. It was an incredible moment when we tested the dispenser for the first time and water came shooting out! Thanks for your help on this - I would have never dreamed doing a repair like this before, and now i know I can do it.

Pulled the refridgerator out from the wall . Unplugged it and shut off the water supply. Removed the rear lower panel . Removed the 2 bolts holding the bracket to the frame. Took off all 3 plastic nuts and pulled the lines out. Had to drill the bracket hole to remove it from the smaller bracket. Cut off the ends of all 3 lines. Mounted the new valve to the bracket. Pushed the lines into the new valve connectors. Bolted the bracket back to the frame of the refridgerator. Turned on the water and checked for leaks. Reinstalled the back lower panel and plugged in the power. Tried the water and everything worked now.

First I watched the little video that was available when I bought the part on line. Though the job was easy, it was a VERY good idea to watch the video. Just makes you more confident to do the job well. The whole thing was done very quickly and to satisfaction
