Followed the instructions from another person in the Part Select water valve section and from the video on the same page. Excellent instructions and very easy installation. Water dispenser and ice maker began performing properly as soon as the refrigerator was plugged back in to the power.

All instructions included on this site are good. I would add only one thing to them. When removing the 4 water lines from the old unit be sure to pull up on the white rings while you pull down on the water lines. All else is a snap.

Fridge was freezing items & freezer was not freezing items

  • Customer: JEFFREY from York PA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

It was simple... After paying $280 for a repair man to come out and install some unnecessary part to the fridge when I told him "everything on the Internet points to a thermostat repair." He disagreed, fixed the fridge and said the freezer would work more efficiently now. It didn't, so I bought a new fridge/freezer, put the old one in the basement. I ordered the thermostat (under $20), put it in, and now (knock on wood), works great and I have a beer fridge for the man cave

The drive blade was worn and wouldn't turn the drum

  • Customer: RORY from OAK HARBOR OH
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

First off make sure you have a good quality Phillips screw driver. When the blade is worn out you can disassemble the ice maker with out removing the front. But to reassemble the front cover must be removed. Do yourself a favor and buy the drum and nut also. I am a mechanic by trade so the tools and repair was really easy. Be careful of the ice crusher BLADES they are very sharp. If your not mechanically inclined take pictures before disassembly, that will help you greatly. Hope this helps someone. Thanks Rory

Used a nut driver to remove the small panal from the back of the refrigerator. Removed the two screws holding the valve in place. Unscrewed the water lines from the old valve and cut the ends off of them. Push the water lines back into the new valve. Unpluged the wiring from the old valve and installed them in the new valve. reinstalled the new valve and put the cover back on. Tested system for proper operation.

Stop crushing ice.

  • Customer: Lee from Hockley TX
  • Difficulty: Easy

Crusher housing had broken so I ordered the part and replaced it. I have since put it back together twice. When I first installed it it crushed the ice no problem. From that point on it seems to lock up and won't crush the ice, cube ice works but the blades seems to hang up after the first use. I can turn the cog by hand but I have to turn it backwards a few times before it turns freely, however it still won't crush the ice. I took it apart and put it back together again. Same thing happened after the first time I tried it. Can you help me. The old crusher broke into. Could something else be locking up?Thanks for the help

light socket burned out

snapped the wires from frig onto the proper prong and viola,it works. The proper prong is identified by the size because there are two prongs with the wires and two connecting prongs in the socket. I talked to a very helpful representative and she gave me the number for Frigidaire, when I was confused by the placement of the wire. Wish I had remembered her name to share with you. As it turned out I didn't need to call Frigidaire.

Fridge quit working.

  • Difficulty: Easy

A little research told me the hum plus no cooling was either the compressor or the relay. I ordered the new relay and put it in but it didn't fix the problem. I ended up having to buy a new fridge, but it was worth the $30 gamble to see if I could fix it on the cheap and it saved me the money a service call would've cost. Pretty easy installation, just in a tight space on my model.

Very weak water pressure from dispenser, hollow ice cubes

  • Customer: Dominic from Key West FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Wrench(Adjustable)

I diagnosed the problem by checking the water flow at the supply valve and hose by disconnecting the hose from the back of the fridge. Found the pressure to be adequate. I then reconnected the supply hose and removed the cardboard backing from the fridge and removed the nuts holding the water inlet valve to the chassis. I loosened the first hose that runs from the bottom of the valve and had my wife activate the valve by pushing the water switch on the front of the fridge. Water basically sputtered out of the valve and I decided that was where the problem was. I ordered the valve from partselect. When it arrived I thought it was the wrong part because it had push-fittings whereas my original valve was all thumb screws. I took a chance and one by one used a utility knife to cut the hose free of the old valve as close to the nut as possible. Connecting them to the new valve was a piece of cake! Just make sure the hose bottoms out when you push it in. I turned the water back on, no leaks! Plugged the fridge in and pushed it back to the wall. After a bit of air bled out I had a strong flow of wateragain like new! The next day the ice cubes were solid again! We use the filtered water so many times a day and had been so frustrated with the slow water flow we had considered donating the fridge and buying a new one; thanks to this easy fix we expect keep it for years to come!
