I thought I would have to have a serviceman replace the unit. After watching your video, I thought I would try it. It was much easier than I had imagined. If it wasn't for your video, I probably wouldn't have tried it. Thanks for your help. I will definitely check with your company first, for the next repair odyssey.

I removed the on/off bail wire. I then removed the cap over the motor/control panel. I removed the 3 screws, lifted old unit out, installed new unit and then put everything back together. I had ice within 12 hours and it's run like a top since. I am a 64 y/o widow & I try to repair everything myself to save money. I'm very pleased with Part Select & will recommend them to everyone. Awesome shipping time too. Ordered on Thurs. Received on Fri. Fixed on Friday afternoon!

After reading (Warm air getting into freezer) by David from Chesterfield, MO & (Ice door was broken) by Ray from San Antonio, TX, it was easy to follow their instructions (especially- Patience is a virtue! and go step by step. Thanks to both for their detailed instructions, this retired mechanical engineer was able to 'get it done'. Stan from Denison, TX

Removed a total of 12 screws, unplugged the control boards, plugged-in the new control boards and replaced the 12 screws.The FAQs section of the PartSelect troubleshooting guide helped me correctly identify the control boards as the source of the problem. The LED sequence was the key to identifying the problem.

Icemaker stopped working

First, I went online and looked up the directions to remove the ice maker. After several attempts of removing and re-installing it, I found that one of the tines on the wheel had broken of making it impossible for the ice to dispense. I went online to PartSelect, found the exact part I needed, not the new replacement one either, and watched the proper installation directions on the website. When the part came, I did exactly what the video said, which took me maybe 10 minutes, and plugged the fridge back in - make sure you unplug the refrigerator - don't just shut it off!! I heard the water going into the maker, and about 30 minutes later I heard the first batch of ice fall into the bucket!!! It was music to my ears!!!! Oh, and by ordering from PartSelect and doing this simple repair myself, I saved $150.00!! PartSelect is now my new best friend!!!

Nail set was used to push a locking bump to free the old slide. New slide had large bumps on each end which didn't allow tabs to engage mounting.slots on holder. File was used to reduce size of bumps. Original slide had a single bump in the center which fit intro a hole allowing the slide to lock in place securely.

Placed the door back on the bottom hinge, reinsert the top hinge into the door and secure top hinge to the refrig with the 3 screws original removed. EASY!!

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
My ice make had stopped working and I thought it was a water connection issue, however, after removing the motor cover, the plastic gear just fell to the floor. I wrote down the model number and looked the part up online. I ordered the part and it arrived a few days later. Three screws and a new motor and I had a working ice maker. Great experience.

Pan slide track tolerance too tight

  • Customer: Trent from Otsego, MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The slide track is designed to slide directly into the slotted metal rails in a no tools required application. However, the tabs in the plastic slide track were slightly bowed inward which decreased the tolerance required to slide freely. After several attempts the plastic then became slightly gouged by the metal rail further preventing the slide track from sliding all the way into place and into the detent. I ended up using a small file to file down the plastic slide track just a bit to remove the gouged plastic and create the required tolerance to allow the slide track to slide into its intended position.

I surfed partselect and read that a reader had a similar problem with a rattling fan. I then removed the back panel, after I had unplugged the unit, and was able to feel the slop in the fan shaft. I then watched the video of how to replace the fan and ordered the part soon after. The part arrived 3 days later! Easy to do. I was finished in 12 minutes and the fridge runs silently. The part of the job that took the longest was vaccuming the undercarriage. There was alot of dust! Couldn't have helped the efficiency on the fridge. Keep it clean.
