First I called Mr appliance from Bayport ny, And they told me we needed a new frig. So that night we went out and bought a new one from PC.The next day I canceled it and watched your video. The freezer side was cold and the fan was running so I figured it was most likely the defrost timer or the bimetel thermostat as the evaporator was frozen.I ordered the part from you (parts select)installed it EASY And it runs perfect!! This is my second time the last time it was my Moms frig but in this case the fan was not running. So I ordered from you watched your video and again it runs perfect. Thank you for all your help. I will always order from you.Oh and the part was at my door in two days.And I was able to cancel the other frig 1300.00 saved Thank you parts select

The video on the site made the repair extremely easy. It took 15 - 30 minutes start to finish. Had it not been for the video I wouldn't have known that the plastic nut on the end of the auger was reverse threaded. I would highly recommend this site for ordering appliance parts.

Took old drawer out, put new drawer in. When I first opened the new drawer I was a little disappointed as the printing on the edge of the crisper (where it says humidity low-high) was a different color than my existing drawer, I know it's such a small detail that nobody would notice but me. My fridge is almost brand new and I'm the one who broke the drawer so I was a little sad but then realized that I could remove the edge of the drawer and replace it with my old one... VIOLA brand new drawer with purple letters! The drawer itself came so fast, I believe it was 1-2 days to my door! Thank you Part Select

I would not have attempted the repairs without your instruction. I use a Drimel tool with a abravise blade to cut the part off the shaft. After I realized the Drimel tool would work. It took me parhaps 10 minutes to get it off the shaft. I had already ordered the new part and the job was complete. Thanks for the help. Ron Burch

First we bought an icemaker from Parts Select. That repair went very easy. The old icemaker the plastic coating over the metal had started to come off. We replaced the icemaker and I waited but didn't hear it fill the ice tray I was worried then that it was a valve that was mentioned on the website. The next morning my Wife told me, we have ice I was very happy. Easy to replace the ice maker just have to unplug ours at the icemaker itself, loosen 2 bolts and it comes right out. We just purchased this house and later while we where cleaning the dispenser paddles discovered that the ICE GUIDE the bottom tab was broken off and it was badly discolored so we quickly placed a 2nd order for a new ice guide and thought as long as we where doing that pop out the ice dispenser grille and replace that. They ship quickly and prices seem reasonable. Thank you Parts Select.

stopped making ice

  • Customer: George from Spring TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Using nutdriver removed 3 screws and ice maker. New ice maker had wire harnees attached but was too short by about 2 inches,I may have ordered wrong one as the part number on my old icemaker did not match any I looked at. No problem I just used my old wire harness and installed new one with nutdriver and 3 screws . In about 3 hours it was making ice . Very easy took about 10 minutes.My wife thinks I'm a real handy man.I guess so ,I can even replace a light bulb.
