I opened the refrigerator door, being careful to leave the freezer door closed. After verifying that refrigerator light was on, I squatted down to be at the same level as the crisper drawer. Firmly grasping the old crisper drawer by the convenient built-in handle, I pulled the drawer until it was fully opened. I removed the contents of the old crisper drawer, noting the original location of each item, so that I can place the contents into the replacement drawer in the same place. Grasping the old crisper drawer, I pulled outward and lifted slightly until the drawer was off the track and out of the refrigerator. Using both hands, I placed the rear of the new crisper drawer against the drawer track, lining the tabs on either side so that they would enter the track. I applied gentle, rearward pressure, guiding the new crisper door onto the track. This step was a little tricky. I had to wiggle the new crisper door up and down a bit, to get the new crisper door past the "stop bumps" in the track. After the new crisper door was sufficiently in the track to be supported by the track, I replaced the contents in (what I thought) the same locate from which they were removed from the old crisper drawer. After placing all contents back into the new crisper drawer, I applied a little more rearward pressure until the new crisper drawer was in the fully closed position. I then closed the refrigerator door. I quickly reopened the refrigerator door, to ensure the light went out. It was on. I slowly closed the refrigerator door, keeping an eye on the gap between the refrigerator door seal and the refrigerator cabinet, and noted the light did, in fact, go out when the door was about a half inch from being fully closed. Returning to a fully standing position, I announced to my wife that I repaired the broken crisper drawer. The congratulated me on my accomplishment and I felt a rush of satisfaction over a job well done.

Looked up youtube video to check how to test if it was the water fill valve, icemaker, etc. Checked and it was the icemaker. Removed old icemaker; ordered new one from parts select. Used existing wiring harness in freezer and hooked up new icemaker easily. New icemaker works perfectly.

Replaced ice maker. Ice maker was cheaper if you used parts from old ice maker! Very easy to install! Ice bin auger was a bit more involved, but with the attached video underneath the explanation of the part, it was soooo easy to replace! Now we have ice again! Thank you so much!

Received new drawer in 2 days and effortlessly exchanged it for broken one. Color of writing didn't match but I just removed it from the old one and replaced it. Very pleased.

The refrigerator would not defrost and would freeze up and no longer cool.

Turn off power to the frig. Remove the shelves and back brackets from the freezer, then with a 1/4" nut driver remove the nuts holding the rear metal panel in place. Once removed the defrost thermostat is right in front of you. You will have to clip the wires from the old t-stat because they are in a harness. Once clipped, strip the wires back, wire in the new t-stat, add wire nuts and put it all back together. Very easy job to do, works great. Thanks Parts Select, Mike.

Refrigerator door would not close properly

I removed the upper hinge cover and then the the hinge itself. Then lifted the door off the lower hinge peg. I placed a blanket on my pool table and positioned the door on it. The bottom screws were a little difficult to get the nutdriver seated so I used a quarter inch drive with socket to remove the screws. The replacement Closing Cam was quickly inserted and reassembled the hinge and lubricated with vaseline. Next I removed the Door Cam that was still on the peg on the refrigerator (it was completely worn flat). Quick work for this too. I tried to set the door back on the pivot hinge but eventually I needed another person to guide the door onto the peg. Reassembled the top hinge and voila, the door works just like new.

Drilled holes where pins had sheared off. Replaced pins with 4-40 x 1" screws and nuts and fastened switches and spacers on bracket. Used Loctite threadlocker to prevent nuts from loosening and installed bracket. So far, both ice and water dispensers are working fine.

My first try was to replace the water inlet valve. New valve was a good bit different than the original but not too hard to figure out. The main water inlet is on the inside rather than the outside. Flex hose and a stick in connector were included and I was able to work through that. But, when I turned it on the water still over flowed. The only thing left was the Ice maker. I ordered a new one. It came broken into several pieces. I ordered another, it arrived overnight with expediated shipping. install took maybe 15 minutes. problem solved. The company refunded me the full charge for the damaged ice maker and most of the charge for expediated shipping on the replacement. I'm happy and my wifes very happy.
