The changing of the water valve was pretty straight forward. First shut the water off to the ice maker, then pull the refrigerator out. Once that is done, then I removed the cardboard covering with a cordless drill, loosened the screws that held the water valve in place. The water valve assembly is colored coordinated so disconnecting and reconnecting the lines to the new valve assembly was pretty easy. Reattached the cardboard covering pushed refrigerator back and place turn on supply line and waited for the ice maker to fill up. After several cycles on the ice maker I made one slight adjustment on the ice cube size behind the cover of the ice maker. Total time one hour, then waiting for the ice maker to cycle a few times to ensure all was working properly.

Installed new valve.There are several pieces of tubing coming off of the valve. Pay close attention to where they go. Color coordination is poor on the new valve.

I can fix just about anything, but when I'm approaching to fix an item that I have previously no experience with I always do some research before attempting a repair. Once I diagnosed the problem (The evaporator fan was not kicking on), I purchased both the thermostat and fan because either one of them could be the source as to why the refrigerator was not working. Unless you want to drink room temperature milk for three to four more days, I highly recommend that you replace both. After cleaning out the freezer and removing the pull out bucket, I removed the screws and pulled out the metal enclosure. The fan was easy to take out along with the thermostat. The time consuming part of the repair was splicing the old wiring harness with the new thermostat and condenser fan since the replacement condenser fan had a different wiring harness. I had to heat sink the butt splice connectors and I wrapped all the wires in a cold weather electric tape. After that I plugged the refrigerator right in and to my delight it worked :) I love this website because it is very user friendly accompanied with fast and efficient shipping. Thanks again!

When my side by side Kenmore refrigerator quit keeping the top half of my freezer and refrigerator cold I called Sears to see how much it would cost to get it checked out and fixed. Bottom line it was going to cost minimum $65 (which was just for him to come out) to $250 on up depending on what the problem was. So i decided to "do it myself"! I took it apart and within a few minutes figured out that it was my evaporator fan. So I went to sears to order the part based on the part number and with shipping and handling it was going to cost $125. While at sears I got on one of their computers and quickly looked up Kenmore parts and partselect.com came up and I quickly found the part for $62 and I chose overnight delivery and spent a total of like $83. When my part arrived I realized that the wiring/plug ins didn't quite match up. So I got online and went to their website and found a video for "do it yourself'ers" like me on how to splice the wiring to make it match. It took me about 20 min to splice the wire and put my refrigerator back together and IT WORKED! Easy easy easy and I saved moocho bucks! Ill never pay a repairman again. Oh and by the way, I am blond! :-)

unplugged frig, removed shelves & inner lower back panel in freezer side, removed defrost thermostat from tube, cut the wires and spliced in new stat wires with provided wire splices crimped together and replaced thermostat on tube it has been a week and no ice so far??. this was after 2 trips by the repairman who replace the defrost timer board which was most likely good at a total of $160!!! still cheaper than $1000 for a new frig!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After receiving the parts, I clamped on the connector ends, and put on the shrink tubes. Unplug frig, took out the shelves (4) screws, unscrewed back panel (4) screws. Took old thermostat off tube, clipped (2)wires on old thermostat, splice wires, clamped connector on old wires, moved up shrink tubes, and used a heat gun to shrink the wires. Put new thermostat on the tube the old one came off of, put panel, and the shelves back. Pugged frig in. Works great!

The defrost thermostat kit is located in the freezer side of the refrigertor. I turned off the electrical breaker for the refrigerator. I began the project by removing all the frozen food on the lower half of the freezer. I removed the racks and 3 rails on both sides using a cordless drill with a 1/4" socket and located panel. The panel had 4 1/4" screws holding it to the back of the freezer. I removed all screws and the panel came out easy. I located the defrost thermostat and with some wire cutters, I cut the wires. I connected the the new defrost thermostat with wire connectors and reattached it to the copper tube I removed it from. I put the panel back on along with the side rails and racks.. This project was very easy.

First I am a 68 yr. old woman, I watched the video that you provide to replace the door closure hinge bearing and the door closing cam, got out the tools you said I would need, Put a blanket on the floor, removed the top hinge, layed the door down, exchanged out the hinge bearing and cam, screwed them in, replaced the door, put cap on the top hinge and was finished. It took less than 20 minutes from start to finish. Also I would like to tell that after the door is emptied it is very light. My husband who recently had back surgery watched in awe!

Not long after we bought this fridge, the plastic on the light switch cracked, making the lever stick out too much so that the door wouldn't close. It's been taped down ever since. I simply pulled the old switch out and plugged the new one in. I'm kicking myself that I didn't do this ages ago. It was so easy and now I can see inside my refrigerator again.
