1. I first confirmed that the problem was a bad Infrared Ice making control board (Watched flashing of red light on right side of freezer - solid light would not occur when holding flap on left side of freezer). 2. I unplugged refridg,3. unscrewed both sides of the control unit and disconnected wire clips to the electronic boards. 4.popped in new Boards on both sides and connected clips onto each board. 5. Screwed the boards and covers to walls of freezer. 6. Plugged power back into wall and checked Red light again (when holding flap in, a continuous red light verified it would work). closed freezer and shortly ice was being made. Simple process. (careful using Screwdriver to help take wire off of boards - a small clip holds wire clip on - you need to stick screwdriver into back of clip while unconnecting). Easy and my ice worked perfectly.

I was hesitant about calling the repair line, I thought it was a gimmick, but tried anyway since it was close to the 4th of July weekend. The repairman asked a few questions and diagnosed the problem. He said the sensor was out on the ice maker and I would have to get a new one, he gave a link to the part I needed. I was still hesitant, as I know very little about repairing appliances. Thought about it for an hour, decided to order the part, and thought I would call a repair man if all else failed and send the part back. I received the part in 3 days and it didn't look too difficult to install, I decided to give it a shot, all i have to do was take a few screws out, remove the old ice maker, and put the new ice maker in and plug it in and attach the screws, it went real well, the hardest part was finding the right size socket to fit on the screws, I turned the water back on and it didn't leak. The next day I had ice, still can't believe I did it myself. I was extremely pleased, that I didn't have to call a repairman and take a day off from work to get it fixed. I will use this sevice again.

replacing the ice and water filter

I watched the YouTube video on your website, performed the task as depicted in the video, and had absolutely no difficulty. The fellow in the video must be stronger than I am, so I used a pliers to twist out the old, and twist in the new. And while turning off the ice maker first was a good hint, he forgot to tell me not to turn the old filter upside down after removal because it is pretty much filled with water. I kind of think I'm pretty handy, but your site is really, really good for the average homeowner.

Took out the old filter and put in the new one that I received from you which seemed liked almost immediately after waiting three months to get the filter from Whirlpool. I will from now on order all filters from your company because the lady that took my order was very courteous and told me exactly when to expect the part. Love doing business that way.

Problem disconnecting the water line tubing

  • Customer: Roy from Williamsville, NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

I could not pull the water filtering housing far enough forward to disconnect the water tubing lines (short tubing line). I had to remove the cover from the back of the refrigerator, disconnect the tubing from the back and then pull the water housing forward to disconnect the tubing from the housing. This added another 20 minutes to the job. Otherwise the installation went well.

Followed the Partselect instructions - removed door, removed old cam and replaced with new cam. One lesson learned. There are two cams - one that sits on hinge below door and one that is up inside bottom of door. If you are replacing one, replace them both.

I removed the top door hinge cover, removed the top hinge, pulled the refrigerator door off, layed it on the floor, removed the door cams, installed the new door cams, replaced the doo and top hinge and hinge cover. If you have this problem with your refrigerator door, be sure to replace the upper and lower cam.

Door wouldn't automatically close tight

If you have to push your door to close it and it doesn't close on its own, this is your fix. These door cams are two plastic pieces on the bottom hinge, one on the door and one on the bracket that goes to the body, that engage like a gear with only a couple of teeth. They are supposed to have raised teeth that engage to ride the door to a closed position when it is nearly closed. They are plastic and are made to wear down. To change, empty the door, then at the top of the door (i.e., looking down from above) unscrew two bolts that go to the hinge. The door then lifts off the bottom bracket. Put the door on a soft surface and unscrew the bolt that holds this cam. You can re-use the bolt. There is another cam bolted to the bracket that stays attached to the fridge. Change both cams at the same time. Reverse the process to re-install the door. Your door will close like new for under $10, in maybe 15-30 minutes.

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.
