Very simple repair. Followed the video instructions. Simply removed a few screws and nuthead screws. Removed the cover plates. Removed the old thermostat switch. Removed the plastics tubing over the temp sensor probe. Put the plastic tubing on the new sensor probe, ( rubbing a slight amount of vegetable oil on the probe to allow the tube to slide on easier,). Reinstalled the temp probe. Reinstalled the new switch. Connected the wires to the switch. Reinstalled the cover plates and screws. And the job was complete. Almost took me longer to write this out, than it did to complete the project. Hey, it was an easy fix.

We suspected the thermostat assembly was the problem. We reviewed the video provided by PartSelect and accessed the thermostat assembly. To ensure the thermostat assembly was likely the culprit, we used a multimeter to test it. We ordered the assembly from PartSelect and were pleasantly surprised at the speedy delivery. Using the same video, we replaced the assembly and put the refrigerator back together. Thank you so much for saving us money we didn't have for the repairman. We will be ordering again soon to repair a leaky waterline and ice maker.

the water stain on the dispenser grille was unsightly even after cleaning with baking soda and vinegar, hence, we purchased a new one. popped the old one out and put new one in. have used parts select in the past and their pricing was very competitive if not better than over vendors.

Protective cover for bulb had melted

  • Customer: Lee from Brooklyn NY
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

I tried to just replace the cover rather than the whole unit but it was impossible - the cover would not go/stay on. I tried to remove the old unit completely but it would not unplug it was practically fused to the back of the fridge and the liner was cracking. I ended up breaking the cover and jerry rigging it over the bulb to prevent items in the fridge from being able to touch. Bad solution.

The drum just started breaking apart one day. i thought i'd have to buy the entire auger. But as a result of Parts Select, Irealized i only needed to buy the drum.

  • Difficulty: Easy

Before I ordered, I followed the great video to disassemble the unit. That's when I realized I only needed to buy the drum. Five days later, I had the part. I thought I remembered how to reassemble it, but I ended up needing to watch the video again. It wasn't difficult, but you must get all the bits back in the same order!! Once that was dine, it all went together easily. Thank you! I'm so impressed with this site that I posted on Facebook about it so my friends can also save big bucks doing simple repairs themselves.

The video provided excellent instructions on how to to this job. The hard part was removing the keeper ring so that the auger assembly could be separted from its housing.

followed video instructions... only thing done differently was to tape crusher blades together before removing from shaft and added a drop of sewing machine oil to all screw sockets before replacing to reduce rusting and create greater ease of removal if further repairs needed
