I feel like McGyver!

Hi, this was an easy repair job. And, after I was done I felt like McGyver. It took me about 1 hour. The hardest part was getting ice maker's power source disconnected. That was tricky; you have to remove the housing that covers the power connector.

After our four year old refrigerator door wouldn't stay closed as a do it yourself kinda gal I found this website that assisted me in an easy and inexpensive fix. The "plastic" yes, "plastic" piece on the bottom of the door was worn down to nothing. My only suggestion is to call in your order, the customer service folks will help you order the right cam for your model. The next thing is to change both cams if you have a side by side. We changed the fridge side which fixed the problem, then realized the cam on the freezer needed to be changed to make it level. Great customer service!

I called the 800 number and the lady was great to work with and helped me thru all the order process and confirmed the numbers. She also told me she would try to get the order out that day which she did and I had the part two days later. When it arrived I went to the web site and reviewed the video and went to work and all went as the video said. Thanks for the help and if i need another part I will visit your site or call.

I was ready to spend the $$$ on a repair person when my wife (smart woman) suggested I go on line to see if we can fix it ourselves. I (luckly) found your company and your website made it easy to find the right part plus as an extra bonus you had a video that showed how to switch out both control boards. To top it off, the package came so fast ( the next day - even with standard shipping ) I did not think it was the parts. 10 or so minutes with a Phillips screwdriver and we were back in business. THANK YOU ! ! ! !

Plastic hinge attached to chute door broke

  • Customer: James from Houston, TX
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I watched the video showing how to disassemble unit and it showed that there was a heat element inside the chute door under the foam seal that needed to be removed and placed in side the new chute door. I spent about 10-15 minutes trying to salvage the element but the adhesive used would not release and the part was rendered unusable. I called the help line and was told that their instructions on that kit said the heating element was no longer required. I finished putting the kit in and the unit works fine

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.

Ice door would not close

  • Customer: Richard from Springfield, MO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Ice door would not close thus letting warm air into the freezer compartment. Thinking the spring was broken, I ordered the Ice Door Kit. When it arrived, I dismantled the dispenser and installed the new parts. After installing all the new parts, I found that my problem was the "Y" end of the bracket that holds the spring pin. It was cracked and would not hold the pin. The bracket seemed to be molded into the panel on the outside of the dispenser. To replace the bracket, I would have had to replace the entire outside panel. I decided to repair the bracket and glue the broken piece. I used cyanoacrylate(CA)super glue that I use in model making. Even though that seemed adequate, I decided to drill a small hole through the bracket, perpendicular to the crack, and install a small screw to strengthen the crack. I also applied a little CA to the screw for good measure. It held fast and so far so good!

We were reluctant to replace the icemaker on a 10-year old refrigerator that required a leak to be patched 2 years ago, but since the patch seems to be holding, we went ahead with the icemaker. Was about the same price as buying a portable icemaker and who wants that sitting on the counter?

Removed the broken icemaker. Removed the tray that is attached to the old icemaker and screwed it into the new icemaker. Then, I installed the new icemaker first by plugging in the control wires, then sliding the icemaker into the freezer, then screwing it into freezer. BY next morning, the icemaker made ice!
