Just remove old one which was really easy since it was practically falling off and replace with new one. It is a bit tricky because you are afraid of breaking the new one. Watch the video and you will be more confident. I was REALLY impressed with the shipping. I ordered on Monday afternoon and when I returned home Tuesday afternoon it was waiting for me on my porch , and this was the week between Christmas and New Year when everyone was fussing about not receiving packages. NOT ME!

We moved into a house that we are renting. The whirlpool refrigerator was missing the the ice shoot. The landlord wouldn't hire someone to install one. I am %95 blind. I went on PartSelect , entered the refrigerator and they had an easy blow up diagram. I ordered the part and watched a video on how to install it. When the part came in my son watched the video and had it installed. Hats off to PartSelect for their great web site .

I pulled the refrigerator away from the wall, unplugged the electrical cord, and turned off the water going to the refrigerator. I then removed the cover on the bottom rear of the refrigerator by removing 7 or 8 small screws. Luckily the new and old valves were exactly the same except for some color coding. There were 2 screws to remove that attached the valve to the body of the fridge. There were 3 plastic tubes that connected to the valve and 2 wiring harnesses that plugged in. Before removing them, make sure to note which tubes and wires went where. The 3 tubes on the old valve were the push in type, just like the new one. I could not pull 2 of them out like the instructions said. I had to pry them out with a screw driver. In doing so I warped about 1 inch on the end of each tube which I then cut off with a razor blade. The electrical connections pulled out easily. I then pushed each tube back into the new valve which was very easy and pushed the electrical connections in. I attached the valve to the fridge with the 2 screws, turned the water on, plugged in the electrical cord, and checked for leaks. I put the back cover on and was back in business. It took me about 40 minutes but when I was younger could have done in in half the time.

The lights and digital control on the refrigerator stopped working

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

This was not very difficult, but did take a little more time than expected because once I removed the lower back cardboard panel I decided to clean all the dust out with a vacuum and wet rag. First thing to do is slowly pull out the frig. Then make sure you unplug it! At the bottom is a rectangular cardboard backing. Take a nut driver and remove, look to your left of the compressor and you will see a small square white plastic box. Carefully unsnap. Inside you will see the control panel. At the top center you will see a plastic piece that holds the control panel in place. Pull up gently until it releases. Next unplug the 3 wire harnesses, then plug in the new one and put it back. All done.

Unpluged the refrigerator. Removed the cover on the control unit by inserting a screw driver under the metal clips. Removed the three screws frrom the front of the control unit. Pulled toward the back of the refrigerator on the metal loop which turns the icemaker on and off and it came loose where it goes into the control unit. Wiggled the unit and it came free. place the new unit in approximately the right position. Reached into the icemaker and moved the ice eject leavers so the shaft would enter the control unit with the flat side of the ejector in the right position. Gently pushed the control unit into its place and aligned the screw holes. Replaced the three screws. Inserted the wire shut off loop into the hole on the back of the control unit housing. Pluged in the electric. The ice maker worked.

I ordered the parts and recieved them in about 4 days. I was very pleased with the time between order and delivery. I watched the installation demo provided and it was as spot on. All I needed was a small hammer to tap the old slide loose and the new slide on.
