I ordered a new micro switch to do the repair. When I took face plate off the front of door two pieces of broken plastic fell out. Those pieces were part of what holds the switch in place, I need to order that part but I was able to use small tie wraps to hold switch in place and it has been working for a week now. The videos on this site are very helpful and gave me confidence to do the repair.

I have some electronics background but your listed problems helped me narrow down the problem. I ordered the part, removed old part, installed new part (maybe 15 minutes total) and my icemaker started dumping the ice that was in the tray within 20 minutes and making more. That clunking sound of ice was music to me ears and wallet!! Thanks!!

Ice maker wasn't getting water

I called a repair man out to see what the problem was because my husband just died and I didn't want to pay such high prices for a repair. He told me I needed a new motor for the ice maker and it would be a total of about 305.00. I couldn't believe the price. It cost me 59.99 for his diagnosis. I went to your web site and found the part and watched you installation video. I am 65 years old and I was able to install the new part in less than 15 min. The part was about 95.00. I saved 150.00 by doing it myself. I will always look on line before I have a repair man do a job. I may need them to diagnose the problem, but I will try myself before paying such outrageous fees.

Watched the trouble shooting & installation videos , checked to make sure water was getting to the door. I look'ed closely at the entire unit. Every thing seem'ed to be ok. I made a guess as to which part to order. The control motor or the thermostat. The control motor made more sense to me. I made the right guess. Works like new.

Door Pop or clicking noise upon opening

First I removed the top bracket cover screw with a 5/16" nut driver. placing it aside, I removed the three screws holding the top door hinge off using a 5/16" socket on a 1/4 drive to free the screws , then continued to remove them with the nut driver. placing them aside on top of the refrigerator. Then I lifted the door up and off the lower hinge and laid the door down on my kitchen counter. I removed the lower hinge piece from the lower bracket still on the fridge with a 5/16" nut driver and installed the new piece in its place and also applied a few dots of Vaseline on the lower hinge piece, I then removed the screw and lower bracket from the door and installed the new one and also applied some Vaseline on this piece also. I also took a rag that had been dipped in olive oil and rubbed the entire gasket surround the door to lubricate the gasket to keep it soft, then I reinstalled the door back onto its lower bracket, and then lined door back up correctly and reinstalled the top mounting bracket and screws then the cover, and then tested door. Door opens now with no noise and opens easier also.

I followed directions to take off the front of the water and ice maker then I saw the switch but I found out the plastic piece that held it in place was broke. I didn't order a new piece I used my reliable super duper quick glue and put the broken pieces to geter then put switch in place. then volla I had the water running like it did before. Thank you for telling me how to get the front off. That was the life saver.

Water dispensor leaking/Retainer clip bent

  • Customer: glen from Rancho Cucamonga, CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

I couldn't figure out if the front plate would come off so getting access to the screw to unscrew it was problematic at first. I don't have whatever tool you need to get at that angle so I used an Allen wrench with a 6.5 mm socket to unscrew the screw and replace the clip. After figuring that combination out it went really fast.

No ice from ice maker

Parts Select has great videos that describe step-by-step how to perform the repair. I did a sloppy job of diagnosing the problem, and concluded it was the water valve. The actual problems was that the ice maker was not sending a signal to the valve to send water. I could have determined this if I had tested the ice maker using all of the connection points where a jumper wire could be inserted. The ice maker arrived on my doorstep exactly when promised, and was an easy ten-minute fix. My conclusion is that an average person CAN work on their own appliances with a company like PartsSelect to backstop them.

Be gentle when installing new plastic crisper drawer. If possible, read install instructions in Refrigerator Owner Booklet. Put new crisper drawer in position and gently push in until you are stopped by encountering the "stops" in side-support rails that are attached permanently to walls of refrigerator. Per Owner Booklet, lift new crisper drawer up slightly to pass over the "stops", then let the crisper drawer settle back down and push it in the rest of the way. Removal is reverse procedure. Be gentle!
