The bent hinge caused a bad seal which let in air into the freezer, so there was a ton of frost build up. I ordered the parts, and they came in 2 days! I figured what tools I needed, got my wife to help hold things, and in 20 minutes it was like new.

We looked and looked for bins for the door for more storage. No place had them! Then we found parts select online and there they were. They were so easy to find with the way the website is set up. Its fool proof shopping! The order was placed on monday and we had the bins wednesday morning, the shipping was so fast! All i did was open the box and wipe them down and snapped them in place. Now we have so much more storage by adding all 3 door bins! Thank you So much Parts Select, you R O C K!

I noticed that the refrigerator was having trouble maintaining temperature. Thought it might be time for new one until I found out that a new frig was $5k to $7K. Just happened to notice that the light switch didn't look quite right (was not sitting sqaure to the door). Once I pressed it it came loose. I then realized the the lights were staying on (50 watts of heating). Replaced the switch and the frig started working like new.

A very cold and brittle switch in a 17 year old fridge. Used screwdrivers to pry out with some resistance Had to cut the molded plug in half and split wires, because replacement contacts were farther apart than the original. End result, works great.
