Just like the video. I had pulled all the parts of the old pin out of the frig months ago. I had tired to buy a replacement pin, but the local supply store could not get the correct part. I finally did a search and found your website. I was impressed with the pictures and the "how to" video.

Following the video instructions provided by the web site, it took me less than 20 minutes to accomplish the entire repair. The video instructions were invaluable, because without them I would not be able to guess how the support part is mounted in the refrigerator’s wall.

This was so easy using the diagram to order the parts needed to replace the missing shelves and replace the broken drawer. Once the parts arrived it was a very simple installation. The Crisper Pan and Upper Crisper Drawer Cover just fit on the white shelf supports. The glass then easily fits in the frame of each. I have used Parts.com prior with the same success repairing the water actuator. Repairs made easy...David

"Popping" noise when opening the refrigerator door.

I removed the food on the door and placed it in the refrigerator. I placed a plastic sheet over the opening of the refrigerator to keep the cold air in. Then I removed the bracket for the upper hinge, remover the door and placed it onto a table. Then I removed the plastic bearing from the bottom of door. I then replaced it with the new bearing. Then I removed the lower bearing and its bracket from the refrigerator. At this point I had to modify the new lower bracket by removing the alignment tab with a dremel because there wasn’t any hole in the housing for it. Then I attached the new bracket and bearing. Replaced the door and upper hinge and the job was complete. It took only about a half an hour to finish.

Popping noise each time refridgerator door was opened.

Refrigerator and freezer was not cooling sufficiently due to an inoperative evaporator cooling fan. Replacing the mini evaporator fan was extremely easy. Here are the steps needed to replace the fan. Step 1: Unplug refrigerator/freezer main power cord from the electric wall outlet. Step 2: Remove the food rack from the freezer compartment. Step 3: Using a 1/4" nut driver, remove the (2) 1/4" screws that hold the freezer vent panel/temperature control in place. Step 4: After removing the screws, disconnect the motor's wire harness connector which is located on the top left corner behind the freezer's vent panel/temperature control. Step 5: Pull away the entire vent panel/temperature control panel and lay it flat on a table. Step 6: Remove the vent cover from the main panel by holding the left side and the right side of the vent cover and squeeze both ends at the same time. Step 7: With the motor now being visible pull the motor's fan blade straight off. Step 8: Using the 1/4" nut driver, remove the (2) screws that hold the motor bracket to the rear of the main panel. Step 9: Using the 1/4" nut driver remove the (2) screws that hold the motor to the bracket and the (1) ground wire screw. Step 10: Install new motor back onto the bracket with the original (2) screws and the (1) ground wire screw onto the same locations.Step 11: Re install the (2) screws that mount the fan bracket to the back of the main vent panel.Step 12: Push the motor's original fan blade back on the shaft until it's fully seated. Step 12: Snap back in place the small vent panel back onto the main panel. Step 13: Push in place until you hear a click, the motor's wiring harness connector back onto the top left corner of the freezer's main power wire harness connector. Step 13: Push the main vent panel until it's in place and then reinstall with the original (2) 1/4" screws. Step 14: Reinstall the freezer's food rack back in place. Step 15: Plug in the main power cord into the wall outlet. Get ready to enjoy ice cold drinking water and a super cold freezer. Pete,your weekend mechanic

Our refrigerator was not cooling below 50 degrees but the freezer had no problems. Turns out that the evaporator fan motor was dead.

Water was leaking from the glass fill dispenser

This was probably the easiest repair I have done on this refrigerator. I pulled the unit away from the wall, turned off the water, and disconnected the hose. I have a wooden floor in my kitchen so I was careful to put a towel under the hose and valve. Very little water drained out but I kept the towel there for insurance. After removing the access panel, I removed the two screws holding the valve in place, slid it back to where I could unplug the wiring connected to it. The connectors are color coded so there is no worry about putting them back incorrectly. The new valve uses push-in type water connections, so you have to cut the old style connections off of the plastic water lines. Kitchen shears did this easily. Then is was just a matter of pushing each line into the proper connector on the valve, reattach the electrical connectors, and slide the valve back in place. Reinstall the screws, reinstall the access panel, hook up the water hose, slide the unit back into it's niche, and run about a gallon of water through the dispenser and you are done.

When the ice maker was filling the ice tray with water, the water would come out the water dispenser at the same time.

First I watched the PartSelect installation video. Then unplugged the power and shut off the water valve on the wall. I used a 1/4" nut driver and removed (4) screws on the back bottom cover of the refrigerator and removed the cover. I removed the (2) mounting screws on the back lower right side of the refrigerator and removed the triple water valve assembly. I then marked the (4) water lines and (3) solenoid connectors with numbers, to make sure they get connected back in the same place, and then I removed them. I used a retractable blade knife to cut the ends of the water lines perpendicular. I pushed the (4) water lines into the valve holes and plugged the solenoid connectors back onto the new triple valve assembly. I mounted the new triple valve, put the back cover on, turned on the water, checked for water leaks. There were no leaks.Then I plugged in the power and waited for it to fill up the ice tray. It works perfectly now ! And it was really easy ! Thank You PartSelect for making this repair easy for me.

used videos and followed instructions to repair. The water inlet valve was first changed because no ice was being made. Changed ice maker due to no cycle and no sound came from it. The water filter was then changed due to length of time since last changed. Plugged up refrigerator and turned water back on and within 2 hours we had ice again.

If this happens to you the first thing I would do is shut off the freezer and, using a hair dryer, melt the ice in the ice maker and heat up the water inlet to make sure it is not froze up. Turn the freezer back on and wait to see if that cures the problem. If not, order the new water inlet valve and follow the simple instructions in the video provided on the PartSelect website. I have never have a more pleasant experience with any parts/repair service than I did with PartSelect. After ordering that part it came within the time they stated and their help with the install was great. Also helpful were the other customers talking about their problems and solutions.Thanks to PartSelect I now have Ice and a happy wife. Happy wife--happy life.

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.
