I ordered the wrong part by mistake. "PartSelect" was more than helpful getting this issue resolved. Received the correct part quickly and with no hassle. Thank you "PartSelect" I will definitely use this company again.

I followed the instructions given by your demonstration. I took the back screw off, dropped the wire plastic cover. I then used the screwdriver to push the two (2)slots in and pulled the icemaker out and then unplugged it. I believe unplugging it was a little hard because the plug was pretty well sealed together and frozen. After finally getting the plug apart I then pulled the icemaker fully out. After pulling the cover off and putting it on the new one per your demonstration, I then inserted it back in. I stuck my hand behind the icemaker and bent the hose with my index finger and thumb so that it would drop into the water tray and then slid the icemaker back in until it snapped back in the slots. I then put the plug cover back on and reinserted the screw. I forgot to mention taking the front cover off before removing the icemake and reinserting it after replacing the icemaker. I would highly suggest customers follow your demonstration, it paid off well. I watched it about 8 times before I received the icemaker in the mail. Oh by the way water started flowing into the icemaker with 4 minutes and ice started coming out in about 30 minutes. As the icemaker got colder it started producing the ice faster. It's a sweet sound hearing the ice drop into the container.

Ice guide was broken. A glued fix failed so it was time to replace.

Hardest part of the whole project was figuring out how to get the bezel off the door to expose the problem area. The rest was simply removal and replace parts. The actuator arm had epoxy on it from the attempted repair and had to be replaced. Easy fix. If you can use a screwdriver and pay attention of how it comes apart you can do this.

Used tip of needle nose pliers to release the plastic retaining pin and was able to slide the tracks out. I was able to install one of the new tracks by hand but the other would not slide in place. I had to use some taps with a rubber hammer to start it. I never saw what it was hanging up on, but the hammer did the trick. Were it not for the snag, the install would have taken about two minutes. The bin and sliders are working perfectly.

Slid off existing tracks and slide new tracks on. One track was a little stubborn to go on, so I put on some utility gloves to get better grip. Your staff are great to work with and the repair items arrived very quickly. Sears was over $10.00 higher per track. Saved a lot of money and got great customer support. Will use your store in the future!

Track wouldn't slide or pop in readily.

Couldn't snap the track in no matter how much pressure I exerted. Was afraid I would break the plastic. Maybe it was the wrong part. Found a suggestion in the partsselect tips area. Used a nail file to slowly sand/grind down the plastic hubs. Took my time doing each one several times. Tested installation after each round of sanding down, so as not to go too far. Eventually (5 or 10 minutes of sanding) it popped right into place. What was even more amazing to me is that I ordered the part around 2P.M. on Friday and it was delivered to NJ the next day(Saturday) before noon.
