I got the new part and unplugged the refrigerator. I removed the wire auto shut-off. I removed the old motor assy. I checked to see if the motor quit running at the same locations as the new one before removing the entire ice maker. Lucky it did, so I installed the new motor assy without having to remove the ice maker. It took 10 minutes at the most.

Verified that the sensors were working. After removing the Ice maker assembly from the sliding track, I found that the indexed drive wheel on the motor had broken off from the shaft mounting. I ordered the Icemaker control and motor assembly from Partselect and swapped out the bad part. It only has three screws to remove and replace so it's fast and easy to fix.

Extremely simple especially after watching the video. Makes me think about why I did not attempt my own appliance repairs in the past. Big time savings! Thanks. P. S. excellent delivery service from Parts Select.

I watched the video so I had an idea of what to do. It was pretty straightforward. Turn off the water, take out the screws, line everything up, replace the part. It went smoothly and the icemaker is working again. :)

Whirlpool Refrigerator not cooling

Besides the refrigerator not cooling, there was a click-buzz-click noise occurring at the rear of the refrigerator every 5-10 minutes. I started by looking up the issue online, I determined the issue was either the compressor or the starter device. I ended up ordering the replcement starter device from partselect.com. The replacement was very easy. All I had to do was pull off the rear cardboard panel, unplug the wire bundle to the starter device, and pull out the starter device.

Would not cool or freeze

I did exactly as the man on the video showed me to do. However, I was not sure what part was broke so I replace them both. Under $100 and my problem was fixed. This place had great shipping too: 2 days. They will be my first choice next time I have a problem. Oh and our local repair company would have been $125 for just a service call and they could get to it in a week.

Stopped cooling and freezing

No prior experience in appliance repair. The majority of time was used in researching the problem and how to fix it. The Parts-Select website and the comments of prior customers made it easy to diagnose and repair. Unplugged the unit, took off the cardboard back cover, located the start device, using website comments and information pried it off, placed the new one, put cover back on, plugged in. By morning back to 40 degrees. Took apart the old one out of curiosity and it was completely burned-up on the inside.

We heard the unit trying to start and then cutting off. It quit making ice. I pulled the unit out cleaned the coil and could feel the compressor was really hot. Unplugged it and let it cool down. After internet search plugged it in a heard it try to start then cut off. I read so many short stories on your site that described my problem I was convinced to purchase the part. You guys did a great job! I ordered it on Monday before noon it came the next day Fed X ground. Took me a liitle over 15 min. to put the part in. Plugged it in and it's worging great. We live in remote area and service call would be real expensive. I will be back here on next repair challenge. Thanks for your help. You guys offer a great service.

Unplug refrigerator. Take unit cover off with a screwdriver or nut driver. Looking at the left side of the compressor you will see the start device and run capacitor with a clip around it. Use the pliers to remove the clip. Take screwdriver pry gently between compressor and start device and take it off. Replace with new part. NOTE: THE CLIP DID NOT FIT THE NEW ONE. Put the unit cover back on. Plug it up.

Refrigerator not cold, Freezer not freezing; running for about 5-10 seconds, then shutting off.

Watched video instruction. Looked at online diagram. Removed back cover. Replaced two parts purchased from Partselect.com. Great website, fast service, excellent price! Almost purchased a new refrigerator, but decided to try this first! Happily....working perfectly and spent less than $100 (and saved $1,500 by not purchasing a new refrigerator)!

Unplugged refrigerator and removed back cover to expose the compressor and timer/relay assembly. I removed a retainer clip with needle nose pliers, unplugged and removed harness to relay followed by removing the timer/relay assembly together from the compressor. I used the screw driver to pry off very gently. Once removed, the new timer/relay was installed followed by the harness, retainer clip and back cover. The refrigerator was plugged in and my Gladiator man cave fridge was brought back to life.
