No problem, I Just pushed the plastic pin to the old support studs into the frig wall using a small screw driver and hammer and with pliers pulled the studs out to the wall of the frig being careful not to damage the wall. Then with pliers {needle nose} pulled the plastic pin out of the wall. Pushed the new support studs in the hole and tapped the plastic pin with a small hammer into the support stud. Replaced crisper drawer cover and glass shelf. Easy fix

Hinge bearing broke causing door to rub when opened

  • Customer: Corey from Brazil IN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 8 of 12 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the screw in the plastic cover on the top of the fridge that covered the fridge side hinge first. Then, I removed the two nuts with a nut driver that hold the hinge in place. After removing the two nuts and the hinge, I lifted the door up and out of the bottom hinge and placed it on a flat surface. I used a pair of pliers next to pull out the broken hinge bearing from the bottom of the door itself. After removing the old bearing I inserted the new bearing in the door. Next, I put the door back on making sure the hinge went into the hinge bearing and put the door in the closed position. After that was all done and the door was set properly, I put the top hinge back on with the two screws and put the plastic cover back in place. Took 20min to complete. A second set of hands would have been helpful with putting the door back on, but it can be done by yourself.

Tried replacing water filter first. It stilled leaked, so I removed the covers to gain access to the water filter base. After cutting the two hoses to remove the old base, I simply slid the hoses into the new base, screwed it into place, replaced the covers, and then reinstalled the new water filter. No more leak!

Removed the cover inside the freezer. Found out that the motor/fan was not working. Ordered through PartSelect. Got the parts in 3 days. Installed it for less than 30 minutes. Very easy. It saved me hundreds of dollars. We considered buying a new fridge but not anymore. , it only cost me $70 including shipment charges. (Make sure you unplug the appliance first before opening the cover. Remember safety first.)

Most of the time was spent removing frozen food and removing the plastic clip holding one of the shelves in place. Removal of bottom panel took less than a minute. Thermostat easy to find, clipped wires a the unit and removed unit. Used included wire jackets, but not white shrink wrap. This did NOT fix the problem. This was the attempt at a 'cheap' fix. My refrigerator required the 'control box' to be replaced.

A plastic guide rail broke after the meat keeper drawer was left open and the refrigerator door was shut on the drawer, this has happened a few times over the last 6 years. We chose to change out both rails at the same time. We removed the meatkeeper drawer, then the shelf above as the rails are attached to the shelf. We removed the rails (one screw on each side. When the new rails came in, we replaced them with the screws. Super easy!

Original gate broke at the swivel point

  • Customer: Charles from New Orleans LA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

  • 7 of 11 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the old gate by using a flat head screw driver to pry open mouth. I then removed 2 bolts that held on the cage that hols the ice crushing blades. Then I inserted the new gate and used a screw driver to pry the mouth open again (it was more difficult to insert than remove). I then popped in the new gate and re-assembled the cage. It worked on the first shot with no problems!

This is the 3rd time I have attemped and successfully repaired major home appliances myself after the warrenty ran out. I'm sure I could buy a new appliance for the money I saved.

Broken actuator-water

Easy repair, except the re-install of the entire water/ice part back into the door. The original plastic water line too short to fit back into the small opening. Hint: Go buy 10 inch of new water line and a small connector. Run the new line up through the small opening, and connect to the original water line with the small connector. This made it easy to replace and test, and then cut of the excess water line.
Thanks.
