The refrigerator would not defrost and would freeze up and no longer cool.

Turn off power to the frig. Remove the shelves and back brackets from the freezer, then with a 1/4" nut driver remove the nuts holding the rear metal panel in place. Once removed the defrost thermostat is right in front of you. You will have to clip the wires from the old t-stat because they are in a harness. Once clipped, strip the wires back, wire in the new t-stat, add wire nuts and put it all back together. Very easy job to do, works great. Thanks Parts Select, Mike.

I removed the upper hinge cover and then the the hinge itself. Then lifted the door off the lower hinge peg. I placed a blanket on my pool table and positioned the door on it. The bottom screws were a little difficult to get the nutdriver seated so I used a quarter inch drive with socket to remove the screws. The replacement Closing Cam was quickly inserted and reassembled the hinge and lubricated with vaseline. Next I removed the Door Cam that was still on the peg on the refrigerator (it was completely worn flat). Quick work for this too. I tried to set the door back on the pivot hinge but eventually I needed another person to guide the door onto the peg. Reassembled the top hinge and voila, the door works just like new.

Drilled holes where pins had sheared off. Replaced pins with 4-40 x 1" screws and nuts and fastened switches and spacers on bracket. Used Loctite threadlocker to prevent nuts from loosening and installed bracket. So far, both ice and water dispensers are working fine.

My first try was to replace the water inlet valve. New valve was a good bit different than the original but not too hard to figure out. The main water inlet is on the inside rather than the outside. Flex hose and a stick in connector were included and I was able to work through that. But, when I turned it on the water still over flowed. The only thing left was the Ice maker. I ordered a new one. It came broken into several pieces. I ordered another, it arrived overnight with expediated shipping. install took maybe 15 minutes. problem solved. The company refunded me the full charge for the damaged ice maker and most of the charge for expediated shipping on the replacement. I'm happy and my wifes very happy.

The unit came out easily but the wire harness connector just didn't want to disconnect. The ice cold plastic was very difficult to work with and I had to use a screw-driver edge to pry it up and apart.

Unplugged refrigerator, took panels off each side of ice maker, unplugged bad components and replaced with new ones. Returned panels, plugged refrigerator back up. The ice maker began making ice almost immediately.

The rear corners of the original drawer had broken off causing the drawer to come too far forward when being opened.
