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.

Water dispenser did not work. Ice dispenser did work.

I first viewed the instructional video provided by Partselect to pin point the faulty part. It was the control bracket. I would not have known how to expose the control bracket if it weren't for the video. Also Partselect said 48% of past water dispenser problems were the control bracket; this also helped me pinpoint the faulty part. I ordered the part; it arrived in 3 days. Using the video as a guide I repaired the dispenser in about 20 minutes start to finish. I will always go to Partselect for all appliance problems.

Unplug appliance, turn off water supply valve to fridge. Remove rear cover and locate water inlet valve on lower right corner. Remove 2 screws holding valve in place. Pay attention to water line locations. Unplug 2 connections on valve. They are different size so you can't put them back on wrong. Remove all lines from bad valve. Cut all ends off lines and insert into new valve. Make sure they go where they belong. Press firmly into place. Reconnect electrical plugs and screw valve back in place. Turn water supply valve back on and check for leaks. If all is good put rear cover back on , plug appliance back in and your work is done. Easy replacement job.

I went to the PartSelect online videos and watched this one: "Refrigerator Repair - Replacing the Door Closing Cam (GE Part# WR2X4901)," to assess whether or not this could be a do-it-yourself repair. Even though the subject of the video was demonstrated on a refridgerator model different from mine, it appeared similar enough for me to get the idea of how to accomplish the repair, so I used the PartSelect site to guide me to the parts needed to do it. The parts came in and I once again watched the video and then proceeded with the repair. The repair was very simple and easily accomplished - took a half hour total. If you watch the video referred to above, you'll see exactly the way I did it. My experience precisely mirrored that shown in the video. One hint: I did spend some time wondering if I should have emptied the refridgerator before starting the job, and decided not to. It was the wise choice as the job went so fast, removing all the food would have been a waste of time. The door was off maybe 20 minutes total, and that was only enough time to raise the temperature inside about 5 degrees, which was quickly recovered when I re-installed the door. I can't say enough good about the PartSelect site, for the superb guidance in parts selection, as well as the extremely helpful how-to videos. I probably would not have attempted the repair on my own if not for the help this site provided. Thank you very much for this valuable service.

my ice maker had stopped producing ice.

I received my new ice maker and got a nut driver and went to the freezer and removed my old ice maker . Then I noticed a problem. The cord on my old ice maker did not have a plug in the middle, my wires seemed to go through the wall of the freezer. I was afraid I would damage it if I tried to pull the wires from the wall, so I called customer service . She said I apparently ordered the wrong part. I had order a $70 unit and she said I needed the $114 kit. I would have to return the unit and order the kit. But she told me to look at the kit description and watch the repair video to see if that would help to see if I thought I could do it myself or get a service person. After looking at the parts and video I realized that the kit would be sending me the exact same unit and a couple of different type wire cords. I decided that all I needed to do was use the wire harness from my freezer and remove the new wire harness from the new ice maker unit. Of course I cut off the power to the refrigerator before pulling the plugs.I just had to loosen the two upper screws and remove the bottom screws, pull out the old unit, unplug the wire harness from the ice maker and removed the new wire harness from the new unit. Then I plugged the old wire into the new unit, slipped the unit back into position being certain that the water tube was in the proper position, tightened the upper screws, replaced the lower screw. I turned the power back on and waited. In a while I had ice again.

Ice would not dispense through front of door. There was no sound when the lever was pushed either, however, the water dispenser next to it worked fine.

Remove drip tray, remove two screws under drip tray and remove trim piece around dispensers. The micro switch is located at top right corner; slide it off the small post that holds it in place. Remove wire from switch (be gentle so you don't break wire, mine was on pretty tight. My switch was clearly burned out (black on connections). Anyway, just click wire back on new switch and push back on the post that holds it in place. Put back trim, screws and drip tray. The whole thing took a few minutes....I am no repair man but there were two switches on the post next to one another, I imagine the other controls the water dispenser in the event it had the same problem? If I had removed the trim piece and looked before ordering the part I probably would have swapped them out to confirm the problem was definitely the switch...I assume you could do that because they appear identical but can't say for sure. However, all indicators pointed to the switch anyway. Part was inexpensive and Part Select got it right out to me.
