Pull out the refridgerator from the wall. Unplug the fridge and turn off water supply. Remove the cardboard cover from the bottom of the back side of the fridge. The valve assembly is on the bottom right side of the the fridge when looking at the back. Remove the valve assembly. remove the color coded electrical connectors. Push in the quick disconnect fitting on the valves and gently pull the tubes out of each valve, if it won't come out you can cut the lines, just make sure they are nice and clean and straight. The new part was a perfect fit. Push the tubing in to the size matched valve inlets reconnect the electrical connections reattach valve assembly to the fridge, next open the freezer door and lift the ice make door and take you a hair dryer,turn it on and hold it about 1-2 inches away from the rubber hose that is used to fill the ice maker for about 2-3 minutes to remove the ice blockage. Once it is clear, turn on the water check for leaks and verify correct operation of water and ice. Reinstall the card board, push the fridge back into place. and enjoy a cool beverage and pat your self on the back cause you just fixed your ice maker!

Removal of escutcheon was easy. Replacing icedoor was fairly easy, working with wires in the way was a little distracting but simple. Be careful with microswitches and locating pins. Two of mine broke, had to replace bracket. Simple job again. Everything working fine now. No ice jam in chute. Using needlenose pliers to remove/insert pin is the best and easiest option.

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

I followed the instructions shown in the on-line video for replacing the thermostate control. I had difficulty freeing the capilary tube from around the mechanical lever that controls the freezer side vent opening. I had to remove a screw that held the vent lever in place. This is a delicate activity. I was not happy with the way the on-line video delt with this particular issue. Otherwise, the video was right on and straight forward. The problem is fixed.

Lower door closing cam was completely worn down so door wouldn't close on it's own. Ordered parts which arrived in a couple of days. After watching installation video on this website the job looked pretty easy. Needed socket wrench to loosen nuts at top, they were really tight. Removed door. Replaced both the cam on the bottom of door and the cam on the main unit, put door back on making sure it was straight and lined up properly. Retightened top nuts securely. Voila, problem fixed in only about 15 minutes or so.

Refrigerator door wouldn't stay closed

  • Customer: Keith Trent from Lubbock TX

If you are having this problem, read this. My refrigerator door would not stay closed. This was over a year and a half time period. I thought it was something complicated and told my wife to call a repairman. Thank goodness she does what she does best - not listening to me! I finally had enough and went online and googled my problem and found PartsSelect. PartSelect had a repair video showing how to fix the problem. If you are like me, I'm very cautious about purchasing from a website in which I'm not familiar. PartsSelect is a reputable site (I promise I do not work for them). My refrigerator is over 8 years old and they had the part I needed, a lower door cam, along with a video on how to install the part. This honestly took about 5-10 minutes to do and I did it without any help. I was so aggravated at myself for waiting so long at doing this!! I actually ordered 2 of these parts, just for the next time. You can do this.
